I apologise this description won't be too long as I'm typing it rather quickly.
As of right now I do not have a working computer anymore.
This is an issue because my job involves a computer -- freelance artist -- and therefore with my computer simply crashing like this leaves me unable to work on projects I have (both ones in the works and ones yet to be done).
I've had computer issues in the past with this machine which I was able to fix but this time it won't even work properly and the other day it wouldn't even turn on. I have tried many thing over the last year and most were a band-aid fixes and the parts I did replace didn't seem to be the issues -- even if scans said otherwise at the time.
That being said, I thought to give this place a chance to see if I can't raise a bit of funds to gut and rebuild my machine with more dependable parts or replace it entirely with a new machine that will work for years to come.
This isn't a fundraiser for benefits but rather one to help enable me to keep working on what I love to do as well as allow me to do it without worry of another computer crash like this.
