I'm far too old and pathetic to even know where to start getting it fixed. The last time I got in an 'expert' from the Yellow Pages for my old PC, the guy simply restored everything back to its factory settings, and I would hate to lose some of the programmes I've got, like the lovely old keyboard-friendly Media Player Classic which I use to do transcripts (the newest version which they gave me at work is rubbish in comparison); and I'm really reluctant to simply buy a new laptop because of what I've heard about the horror which is the newest version of Windows.
So I was just wondering whether anyone out there has a trustworthy IT expert who might be able to hack into my laptop remotely and have a jolly good tinker around and sort it out. I would pay for their services - I'm not asking any special favours here - but haven't got a clue where to look for someone.
If anybody has any suggestions of a trusted person I could get in contact with, I'd be very grateful! If you prefer to PM me rather than comment publicly, please do so. I just hope that I don't lose Livejournal any time soon!!
ETA: In the end I gave up and bought a new laptop!
