Computer Issues


I am having major issues with my computer right now...I'm praying it isn't going to crash on me but right now I feel like I'm on pins and needles just waiting for something to happen.

It started shutting down on me and flashing a code about 4 days ago. Since then it's done it two more times and when I run a scan it tells me "No Disk Driver Detected". Everything I've read so far tells me my hard drive is going kaboot soon.

I have been working on trying to get my pictures organized but hadn't done that yet so last minute trip to Walmart last night to purchaase an external hard drive and some help from my Dad thankfully saved all the pictures on my computer. I can't tell you how much peace of mind that gave me. Everything of Caleb and Allie from the day they were born was on my computer.

I'm praying I can get it repaired before it just quits on me...I've only had this laptop for a little more than a year and a half now..I got it for Christmas in 07 so it just seems insane that the hard drive could be going bad. Just my luck though!

I'm so glad you were able to transfer those photos!! Ugh..I need to get my MAC looked at because it's either the hard drive or software making it messed up!!!!! Thank God I have the kids computer!

Stacy said...

Oh goodness!!! That is my fear that mine will crash and I will lose all my pics! Is the external hard drive hard to hook up? How much were they at Walmart? I might need to get one.

Hope you can get it fixed!

Thank god for backup disks. Lord knows how devistated you would be if you were to lose all your precious pictures. I really hope it's something small that needs to be fixed and nothing major.

My husband utilizes computers for work and he is lucky to get more than a year or two out of them. I don't know if its all the use they get or they aren't designed to last longer these days? But I sure hope you are able to get yours resolved! We'd miss you if you had to be away from us :)

Ugh! I'm sorry Stephanie! I'm so glad you got it working for the mean time! I would be heart-broken if I had lost any of my data!

My computer's been doing that too! What's with them all doing this at the same time?????

It's been shutting down more and more regularly in the past few months, but I'm still just holding out hope that it lasts a while longer!!!

I hate computer problems. Mine died beginning of summer. I got a Mac and love it. I still need to buy the protection plan. I just have a feeling.
HOpe it gets fixed soon.

Glad your computer is hanging in there! My computer's been acting really slow lately and it drives me nuts. Isn't it crazy just how much we need our computers to function!?!
