Introduction

  • Due to advancement in technology, computers have become an integral part of our lives.
  • Therefore when this machine stops working our lives come to a standstill.

When was it?, and What were you doing?

  • Last year I came across such a situation.
  • Due to corona pandemic, my city was in a state of lockdown.
  • To keep the business running, my employer gave me an option to work from home.
  • I brought a computer from my office and started working from the comfort of my home.
  • I was enjoying the new freedom I had by working from my residence.
  • However, my pleasure didn’t last too long.
  • One day while using the computer, I spilt coffee on it.
  • All of a sudden, the machine stopped working.

What did you do about it? 

  • I tried to fix the problem by using whatever little knowledge I had for repairing a computer.
  • To my dismay, I wasn’t successful.
  • I had put the system in a bag and took it to a repair shop.
  • The damage was massive, and the engineer had to replace a few parts.
  • It took him 4 hours to repair the machine.
  • After repair, the system started working as usual.

And how you felt about it? 

  • I got a sigh of relief when the system started working again.
  • Since I was working on the project of a prestigious client of my company.
  • This problem could have led to disastrous repercussions.
  • But thanks to almighty the issue got resolved in time.
  • Now I have made it a habit of not placing any eatable on my computer table.
