I remember when my laptop just stopped working from old age.... My mothers friend was able to reboot the whole laptop but i lost pretty much everything and my dvd player does not work anymore on it. I have those days where technology is just against me and i hate it

I'm having one of those weeks man, and it's only tuesday... thankfully all my tests for the week are done, and i take notes on paper in every class for some weird reason... i did have a couple of things i'd written i really liked, but i posted most of those on facebook, but getting all my programs and settings back is looking to be a PIA..

nice to see you have your priorities straight.

I had a hard-drive fail once, I put it in the freezer overnight...next morning it worked long enough to take all my files off it. Worth a shot if it's indeed a drive problem.

After it is working again, buy an external hard drive and backup all you stuff!

I back all of my PCs up to an external drive, makes it easy to recover from Learn from experience I guess
