You know more than you think you do. ---Benjamin Spock
I'm not a computer geek. Consequently whenever my PC (or stuffs related to it) turns into a breakdown, I'll always have someone fix it up and I'm not happy about that. How come? Cos it makes me (pretty much) depending on someone's else.
Normally when I ask someone to do me a favor, I was hoping that he/she would fully help me ASAP and I won't take 'no' as an answer. LOL. However, there are times when I didn't get help and forced to take care of myself. Those hard times were never been easy indubitably.
I've been having some technical difficulties with my wireless keyboard recently. It doesn't work like the way it supposed to be. I can't type anything on everything; primarily anything that need to be appeared on the screen. At first I thought it's the PC's fault (hang or sort of), but after restarting the PC few times; it still wouldn't work! Blah.
I can hardly remember what was happened at the time the keyboard was paralyzed. There was no bonfire smoke so definitely it had nothing to do with the operating system inside.
Asking Keisar apparently didn't do any good. He kept running away and simply answering me "How should I know?" whenever I raised this matter. Either he's too cool for this thing or me being such a fool.
A brief history about the wireless devices;
Both of them were purchased at MSI Melbourne, Australia, in mid February 2006 after deliberating over my (ex-)BF's enticement. He bubble-wrapped them enthusiastically so that I didn't have to hand-carry them to the cabin. I was too excited to try them out soon as I got home thus far, I forgot to register them on Microsoft website!
After checking and evaluating its wireless system on my PC over and over again, I've found that the software shows incorrect battery life. I thought it's because the lack of battery power. Since I've been using rechargeable batteries, I tried to recharge the batteries and keep focussing the problem on batteries and voila! ... still didn't work.
Oh come on! Gimme a break!
Another thought popped up. Maybe if I update the software, it'll work. My current version is 5.0 meanwhile the latest version on the web is 6.3. Alright then, let's see if I were right (or not). Unfortunately, I'm wasn't that lucky.
Last chance, I decided to ask the producer, none other than Microsoft. Filling this-and-that, I ended up on this page.
WTF?! Payment method? I just need to write short e-mail asking about what should I do under this circumstances. Gah!
I almost gave myself up to suicide, until I recognize something's wrong. Yes, something's wrong about the battery indicator. It says "Low Battery Life". That's absurd, it's only a minute away after I've recharged them. Conclusively, there's something wrong with the operating system inside.
Still, the bad news is I don't know what to do. At least, I know what is wrong. Period.
