cathybites: (*teethgnash*)
ugh ugh UGH. SO. I bought a new computer and it has been a trial, lemme tell you. First off, a week after placing the order, I noticed it still hadn't processed, so I contacted the CS department, and they were all, 'oh yeah, the processing department needs you to call them to verify the purchase,' and I was all, 'this would've been helpful to know!' and they were all, 'lol yeah.' So I call the processing department, get the order verified. The computer arrived last Friday, I get it home and realize, oh, the super-fancy graphics card in it doesn't have a VGA port, and my crappy old monitor doesn't have a connection for HDMI. Annoying, but I needed a new monitor anyways (as evidenced by the whole lack of HDMI thing.) I go buy a new monitor Saturday morning, go home, excitedly start up my computer, aaaaaaaaaand nothing. Or, rather, a whole lot of nothing. It has Windows 8.1 installed on it, but it came with a free upgrade to Windows 10, but every time I tried to upgrade, the computer would freeze and I would have to start over. Eventually I stopped because I had a roller derby bout to get to (YAY BROOKLYN BOMBSHELLS THE 2015 GGRD CHAMPIONS YAY!!!). So Sunday, I try again a few times. Same no result. So I say, fuck it, I'll stick with Windows 8 for now. BUT every time I try to install ANYTHING on the computer, it freezes. Once I managed to get about five programs installed and I was very excited thinking this was it, but no. Had to start over. I've tried refreshing, I've tried resetting, I've even tried a clean re-install of Windows but nothing. ugh. UGH UGH UGH.

I JUST WANT TO PLAY THE NEW DRAGON AGE DLCS ON MY COMPUTER. IS THAT TOO MUCH TO ASK?

anyways. has anyone else had problems like this with Windows 8 or 10? I'm assuming yes because people always do. sigh.

don't tell me to get a Mac. I use a Mac every day at work. If I wanted one, I would've gotten one. Plus, I can't play DA:I on a Mac.
