Argh! My computer is giving me such a hassle!

As usual, I’ve been feeding my addiction for Heroes of the Storm on a regular basis. Originally I was playing on Mac, but recently switched back to Windows. For some reason (even though it’s the same hardware) it gets frequent network spikes. A couple seconds of inaction in a MOBA is certain death. It’s quite frustrating.

After scouring forums and diagnostic suggestions, I found “DxDiag” that listed my ethernet controller driver as last year’s version. I’ve downloaded a new driver and I hope that fixes the issue.

My question is: What’s the last thing that you fixed? It could be digital, physical, emotional, etc. Are you a handy man/woman?

Of course, if you don’t want to talk about about this, then feel free to talk amongst yourselves!
