Seriously. I have very few issues with my computer. And yet almost EVERY time my husband uses it, it “breaks.” It freezes, it crashes, and today he broke the internet. I can’t get facebook, mint.com, or americanexpress.com to load. No issues with my computer, the internet, or facebook all day. He’s on it less than 5 minutes to try to pay our credit card and he tells me its broken.
Anyone else’s technology hate their husband? Am I alone? I am starting to think he has some kind of anti-mac forcefield that just crashes the system every time he gets too close.

Technology hates me sometimes! My husband is pretty good with computers, we just built a new desktop.

@CorgiTales: LOL! DH is the same way!!! I always end up yelling at him “Why did you touch technology?!?!?! You’re not allowed to touch the technology!!!”. I don’t know what it is about him but he breaks every laptop he touches. Needless to say, he’s not allowed near mine (except when his breaks and is in the shop, sigh).

Haha That happens every time he touches my laptop. I can be in the other room and hear that familiar *ding* that means there’s an alert on the screen or he touched something wrong. One time my desktop icons were all messed up. He said he barely touched anythign but all the fonts were all different sizes and the icons themselves were all over the place!! The next day I had no problems all day, he comes and within two minutes of being on it something else went wrong!! I was like okay, that’s enough. You can’t play anymore.

This is the opposite of our situation! FI had his laptop for about a year & a half and had no problems with it other than “bad boots” sometimes where the loadup was slow. I started using it in September after he got a new desktop, & come December, I started having TONS of issues with it.
- It now overheats & shuts itself off sometimes.
- It constantly runs really hot & loud.
- The sound on the laptop was f-ing up for a while.. the volume was adjusting on its own, so it was a constant up & down, & it was a clicking sound every time it did adjust itself, in addition to showing up on the screen every time it adjusted.
- The backlight on the laptop sizzled & went out last week.. making my laptop screen completely unuseable, so it’s currently acting as a desktop & is hooked up to the LCD monitor of a previous desktop we had a couple years ago.
Granted, it’s an HP laptop which I’ve heard have lots of problems, but WHY did it all start happening when I started using it?!
