Mystery Photo #35

It was a close one folks!  I wondered if we were even going to have a mystery photo this week because I was dealing with computer issues.  My laptop is about 2 1/2 years old now, so the battery doesn’t stay charged for much longer than 30 minutes.  As a result, I always plug it in to use it.  However, over the last couple of days you could see the battery level dropping even if it was plugged in, and if you wiggled the cord it would start charging again.

Now remember I live in the boonies, so it’s 45 minutes to my electronics store where, thank goodness, I purchased an extended warranty.  From work it’s only about a 20 minute drive, so I went on my lunch the day before yesterday and they gave me a new power cord, thinking that was the problem.  It was fine for about 2 hours that night and then it started doing it again.  I managed to back up everything before it died and then I called the store again yesterday, pretty much figuring that it was going to have to go in for repairs.  However, the technician said that sometimes when the battery is old it can short circuit causing the computer to go into a protective mode where it disconnects itself from the power source and shuts down once the battery is completely dead.  Solution?  Remove the battery and run it with the power cord only, and now it seems fine.

Catastrophe averted and we can move on to the mystery photo of the week.  I will give you one hint – it’s definitely not a part on a computer LOL!!  Ok, ready, set, go……

    Piano key is my guess…and I never would have thought of removing the battery. Brilliant! I’m laptop is getting up there as well. You won’t believe it, but I made sure all of photos and writings were saved onto an external hard drive. Look who’s organized!

  13. Ok, so it was really easy this week. Yes, it’s a piano key! You are all so very smart that it’s getting harder and harder to think of something to stump you with, but isn’t it nice that there are so many people patting themselves on the back today because they finally guessed the mystery photo?!? Great job everyone! By the way, thanks to Marianne and onthehomefrontandbeyond for their answers of penguin and reverse oreo cookie – I needed those laughs in the middle of a long day yesterday! 🙂

  14. Why is it the parties I show up for I know the answer and the ones I’m clueless on I’m on time? Hmm LOL
