Stella’s Place Blog Notice

Just to let you all know that I am suddenly experiencing computer issues. I think it is just a faulty AC adapter, and I will have a new one on Monday. In the meantime, my battery has only 5% power, and the computer is very slow. The power seems to be maintaining the same level as long as it is plugged in, and I hope that continues!

I have created and scheduled posts for every day this week, so if I’m not around much, you can count on a place to gab. Even if my computer is down, I still have my phone and Kindle, but neither is much good for blog maintenance.

If it turns out that the new AC adapter doesn’t fix things, I will call Dell (I do have an on-site maintenance contract). That means they come to my house to fix it.

    The cat has chewed on the cable. There is one wire in the Dell jack that completes a logic circuit between the adapter and mainboard. If it doesn’t make contact (or there’s a break in that circuit somewhere, but the main power circuit is OK), the system will run but the battery won’t charge.

    FWIW, I have a Bluetooth keyboard that I use with my Kindle Fire 8, and it allows me to get on the blog and write. It’s definitely not as easy as using a computer, but it might help. The keyboard came from Meijer, so nowhere special.

    Good luck Stella, I hope it as easy a fix as the power cord. Miss all of you, life is just full at the moment. My friend in hospice did pass away on my birthday 😦 .
