This makes matters much worse! Cheri unplugs everything from her computer
and tries to reinstall Win again. Five million tries later, Windows starts
working again. Yay!
Slowly, Cheri reinstalls her hardware. She reinstalls her video card and
her trackball. She plugs her modem back in and reinstalls the communications
port and the modem and the nice TCP/IP settings. She plugs in the net card
and spends some time making that work.
Then she loses her screwdriver.
When she finds her screwdriver she plugs in the sound card and tries, tries
to make it work. Several crashes later it starts working.
Everything is back now, except some programs aren't working. hmm. These
are very important programs and Cheri decides she needs to reinstall Windows
again to make them work.
Cheri's computer promptly dies again. Return to the top of the story to
see what happens next. Many, many hours later, everything works again...
except of course the important programs that Cheri was trying to fix in the
first place. Arrgh!
Cheri coddles her poor computer some more. She makes bandaids with some
stolen files. She decides she wants to upgrade the Internet Explorer.
The computer dies again.
