Computer Nightmare

I am working off of my laptop right now. It is not how I typically work as I prefer to use my desktop, but something has happened to it. I am not sure what it is and am attempting to diagnose it.

What I know for certain is that it is not working. It is only through a lot of scrambling and crap that I got this thing up and running. Funny how important a bunch of keys and wires have become to me.

All I know is that this is going to cost me money. I can feel it. I am praying that my hard drive didn’t decide to commit suicide today.

    “What I know for certain is that it is not working.”

    Let me guess, ‘windows’?

    Jack: we have constant nightmares here…thank goodness my husband can fix things, but that usually means 5 hours out of his day, gone to computer hell. I commiserate.

    If it *IS* Mac OS X, I’d be more than happy to help.

    Then again, if it was Mac OS, it wouldn’t be broken…

    If you think it might be software, send me some e-mail. I can fix almost any problem, promise. (At long as it’s not OS X.)

    I hope Shola didn’t send a little bug through! Maybe he’s on to you…;)

    Good luck and hope it’s only some softwrae problem and it won’t cost you anything to fix.
    I learned the hard way to keep an image of my dard disk – but have no solution for the disaster hardware problems. Luckily they’ve been few and far between.

    Not only to you, keys and wires malfunctioning is probably the highest cause for severe acute depression!

    I can’t stress enough how important back ups are, if you have important files and documents on a hard drive, buy a memory stick for $30 and copy them on it! Backuping has never been as easy!
