Computer Expiration Date

Youngest daughter asked today if the desktop computer was past its expiration date.  I believe it just might be. 

As I mentioned yesterday, the mouse was unresponsive.  I got a new mouse, and the installation of Rosetta Stone was going along smoothly this morning until I hit the "enter activation code" page.  When I tried to enter the code, I couldn't type a zero.  Hmmm, so apparently the keyboard was on the fritz.  Back to Staples for a keyboard.  Uh oh.  Still no zero.  No one either.  Wait a minute.  I thought computers ran on ones and zeroes.  I find it a little ironic that the computer will accept everything I type in the keyboard except ones and zeroes. 

If any of you techie types have any idea how to elicit cooperation, I'd appreciate it.  My tried-and-true method of removing privileges and assigning chores doesn't seem to work on the computer as well as it does with kids.
