i want to cry.
my pc has developed yet another fault. this time it's the usb ports. a few hours ago i plugged my phone in and it started to charge, it then disconnected, all my usb stuff powered off and then everything turned back on. now that was odd, but not a dealbreaker. however i discovered if i leave my phone charging off of my pc it gets really hot, no matter what port i plug it in to and it charges really really slowly if i do that.
i was scared i'd broken my phone but it charges just fine off of the wall plug i normally use.
i'm so sick and tired of a 2 year old pc constantly developing faults, to the point where i can't even trust it plugging anything in via USB anymore for fear of it randomly shutting off all usb devices. imagine if i was doing a file transfer to an external drive when it did that! i would have most likely lost data.
i just... why. a 2 year old computer shouldn't be so unreliable! my 8 year old macbook pro has never let me down and never done anything this weird.
i officially give up on pc's. i am keeping this one just to maybe diagnose what's wrong with it and just be able to trust it for usb again so i can game on it, but it will never be a main machine for me. ever. again.
the first thing i'm doing tommorow is looking for a second MacBook just in case my current one breaks (it did some weird stuff about a month ago which was the result of a ram stick not being installed correctly) and i need a replacement immediately. for now i'm shutting my pc down and i'm gonna unplug it and take it off my setup. again.
