I bought a second-hand laptop from a friend, Jan.
I had used it for a weeks before it failed to load the Windows.
So I wrote to Jan and told her that
'Jan, the laptop you sold to me is helpless'.
Please help, teachers.
I would use "useless".
I had used it for "a week", not "a weeks".
Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
Is it wrong to use 'helpless' in the above example?
Note that laptops are not dead. Nor are websites. To be dead, an entity must have at one time been alive. Perhaps you mean 'non-living', or 'inanimate'.
