My laptop is an old Windows machine raised from the dead with Linux Mint. At some point things will wear out and it will be cheaper to get something else rather than fix this one. This cost about $30 because it needed a new power supply cord. My Android phone's hotspot is what brings me here.
And I'm watching a hulu show while working ribbing on socks.
"Your phone is messed up," I think is geek-speak for it ain't workin' right.
Most likely an accurate diagnosis.
