So I cracked my Windows tablet screen…

Sometimes I feel like I post more about the lack of updates than actual updates.

You see, a few months ago I closed down a storage unit that was kept increasing the rent at least 3 times per year, to the point it was ridiculously expensive to maintain. To do that I had to get rid of a bunch of stuff, and move another bunch back to my apartment. This resulted in not being able to use my desktop PC unless I move everything back and forth.

Around that time I bought a relatively cheap Windows 10 tablet, which ended up replacing my ancient laptop and my unstable Android tablet. So everything was fine, I was doing things from the Windows tablet, and didn’t have to worry much about not being able to use my desktop PC.

The thing is, it’s amazing how you plan a thing, only for another thing to get in the way. The tablet screen cracked without much effort, and the touch sensor went berserk.

But here’s the funny part, the screen cracked by its own keyboard base. Had I known this could happen I would’ve just kept the keyboard base off until I actually needed it.

Anyway, because I had paid for extra warranty to the store, I thought the screen would either be replaced, or the whole tablet would be replaced by a similar new or refurbished model.

Instead, because the price of the model I have went up, and the company in charge of the warranties apparently doesn’t really do repairs, I was only given two choices: either replace the tablet with something around the price range I had paid, which in this case was a cheap unknown Android tablet, or get a refund.

I opted for the refund, but then I decided to give it a try in a few weeks and and replace the broken screen myself.
