Reporting Live From My Cell Phone!





So yesterday I woke up to this sight.

No, that isn't a bad camera shot. That blurry, barely visible screen is (was) my laptop.

And now...

It's a goner. Right after that screen came up, it started to crash and kept bringing me back to the screen that asks if you want to start in safe mode (which didn't work).

Now, I think my laptop is officially done for.

What I have done so far in order to recover it's life is order a recovery disc off of Amazon. If I can't get my files back, I am hoping I can at least get my laptop running again. I feel like I'm a doctor in surgery trying to recover the heart of a patient.

Clear! Buzz. Clear! Buzz.

And I am trying not to focus on the fact that I did not save Chapter Four and part of Chapter Five to another location.

So...

Just as a heads up to everyone...if my posts have spelling errors or formatting issues please know this is why and don't let me know, in case
you want a smart ass answer.

Kidding! Sort of.






So...from now and until I can get my computer running again...

  3. OOOh! Hope you get it back, especially the not backed up files. I hate having to rewrite anything.

  5. Sorry to hear this, Nicole! I lost a lot of my old stuff which I carried around on a USB flash drive that's gone corrupted. It sucks!

    I like that you're able to post from your phone though. Cool. :D

  6. I had laptop problems last year and I almost lost it! I stayed up all night as I recovered the hardisk... I hope that you can recover your laptop and all the files. Kudos to your ability to post via your cell phone... I have an LG and tried to post once but found the small screen to be too annoying... =)

  8. Yeah, that's not good when Safe Mode doesn't work. I hope you at least have printed copies of the chapters.

    1. Um...well the first three are saved elsewhere. I never did print or save the last two. I so need to backup my work more often.

  9. That's one of the things I would just hate happening to me. But let me just say that this little setback made you even more resourceful. Am impressed!
