I cannot believe the bad luck that I am having with my computers lately. You might remember that my desktop died a slow and painful death a few months ago and I purchased a laptop. Wednesday, my laptop threw up the blue screen of death and then would not boot back up. My operating system is fried, meaning that I lost everything.....I'm trying not to cry and throw a major roll in the floor fit because on the bright side, I keep my files backed up on my portable hard drive and I only lost a couple months data. But really, I've lost two months of my photos that I will never be able to recover or replace, including my July 4th party. I know, stupid me. I should back up at least weekly and probably daily but I didn't and now I am so miserable that I could just throw that major coniption fit that is boiling under the surface. I'm trying to be thankful that it was not worse and I only lost a small group of photos but right now, I'm totally into a big pity party. Please someone bring the chips and join me.
OK, deep breaths. I know that once I stop crying that I will survive this. These are just material things...but they are my memories...stop it, stop it. Stay positive, be thankful. I think I'll chant this for awhile.
I just got off the phone with the tech rep and ordered a recovery disk with 2 day shipping. The rep assured me that this will fix my problem, although he has no idea why my system would have failed on a laptop that is less than a year old. I won't be able to post or read anyone for a few days (hopefully, only a few days) and I am so sad that I was not able to participate in Marty's Cloche party. I borrowed my daughters laptop to troubleshoot my problem and try to resolve it quickly...didn't work and Mr. Tech could not offer me anything that I could do to get the recovery disk tomorrow and unbelievably there was no option to download it tonight. Thanks to my sweet Tiffany for helping out her Mom and I'll be returning her laptop tomorrow. I will be MIA for a few days as I anxiously await the Fed Ex Dude with my disk and hope it fixes the problem. Wish me luck.
All The Best,
