Bài mẫu:

I’d like to recount a recent incident where I faced a computer-related challenge. This happened approximately three months ago in my apartment.

I was engrossed in completing an online course assignment when suddenly my laptop started behaving erratically. The screen flickered, and the keyboard became unresponsive. Initially, I thought it might be a minor glitch that could be resolved by restarting the laptop. However, to my dismay, the problem persisted even after several attempts to reboot.

The issue, as it turned out, was a malfunctioning graphics card, which was a bit disheartening considering the urgency of my assignment. I felt a bit frustrated and concerned about meeting the submission deadline.

To address the problem, I decided to visit a nearby computer repair shop. It was the nearest place I could think of where I might find a solution quickly. The technician diagnosed the issue and informed me that the graphics card needed to be replaced.

After considering the time and cost implications, I decided to proceed with the replacement. It took a day to fix, but eventually, I had a functioning laptop again. In the meantime, I borrowed a friend’s computer to complete and submit my assignment on time.

This experience taught me the importance of having contingency plans and being prepared for unexpected technical difficulties. Since then, I’ve become more vigilant about regular maintenance and backups to avoid being caught off guard by similar issues in the future.
