Computer problems

Auntypesty's computer crashed a little over a month ago and is kaput. She's been using mine, there is a really ancient one that she can do games and stuff on in her room, but it won't connect to the internet.
Today Grinnygranny's computer went the ominous beep beep beep. There's no way all three of us can use one computer, so we went out to buy a new one. I'm using it now. A rather nice one with a 17" screen which I'll have to get used to, but it's nice. Now I just have to learn Windows 7.
When we got home Ginnygranny's computer came back to life. It somehow corrected the problem and is working. We'll take it in for a tune up next week just to make sure it's good and fixed.
This will let Auntypesty have my old one once I get stuff moved over.
Didn't need the added expense right now, but it is nice to have a computer that is twice as fast as the other one.

Laptops especially are prone to conking out after only a few years it seems.
