Just when you think... have your day all planned out, something comes in and puts a twist in all your plans. Today was supposed to be spent relaxing, taking the boys to the park, and doing my end of the month backups! Well, after trying to boot up my I even have to go into the rest...everyone that has had computer problems knows what I am talking about!!!!!!!!! My computer decided it was no longer going to work for me. After many attempts of "trying" to fix it myself...I called my techy guy Mike. As I am writing this (on my PC) my laptop is going through a process to hopefully help fix (for the meantime...he said that when things like this start happening on your hard drive you make have a couple of weeks to a couple of months before you have to get a new hard drive)my computer.
I am so disappointed since my laptop is not even 1 year and 4 months old. I asked him the cause and he said it really could be anything like a virus, spyware etc.... AGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!
I am really trying to not stress, but as you can imagine...everything is on that picts, my digi stuff, all my e-mail addresses, my life is on that computer!!
Needless to say I have no picture to post (since they are all on my other computer). So if you think of me, say a little prayer that this can be least for now!!

Oh you have a warranty/plan w/ your new laptop? I hope so!! I need to get an external drive and back up more often....I'd be SOL if that happened to me! So sorry!!

I'm still trying to recover from my crash in Jan so I feel your pain. I did get a new hard drive but all else was lost. Hope it all works out. Good luck on your next marathon.
