My solution is “Send me some money and I’ll fix your computer”. You send me some money and here’s my solution:
1: Collect the first seven books or magazines you come across wherever you are right now.
2: Power off and UNPLUG your computer power source
3: Arrange the seven books by number of pages, shortest publication on the top of the pile.
4: Select the 3rd book from the top.
5: Read the third paragraph down on the 17th page, out loud, for exactly 5 minutes.
6: Close your eyes and count, silently, to one hundred.
7: Plug in the computer and power it up.
Of course, your computer now works and you’re delighted.
