Uh-Oh - My Hard Drive Might Be Dead
Although I have had computer problems before (see here (and here) and here (and here)), that was simply a matter of my computer overheating and such. However, this time it's different. As I was checking e-mail (and for a local Blockbuster), my computer froze - which, for a PC is normal (see new Apple ad (though there's a funny counter-clip). However, when I restarted it, it started giving me bad messages and clicking. It didn't seem good. So I took it into the place where I had taken it the previous two times and the guy at the counter guessed that the hard drive might be bad. Sooooooo that means ALL of my files are no longer - boo! BOO! Fortunately, I think that, for the most part, I can move on, even though there's a lot of pictures, especially, as well as some files that would have been good to have, but I will have to move on if that is the case. It wasn't even like I could have known to back up my computer, as I wasn't having any problems and then, without any warning, my computer goes kaput. Darn. OH well.
