We had issues today - with the internet & with a power outage. First went the net, then the power. Before the power was lost, it flickered 3 times & then nothing. It was weird. When power came back on (it seemed like forever, but it was only a couple hours), we had dinner, then I went out & smoked, then Kyle rebooted the computer.
Lovely...an error message & I can't get into Windows. I dont' think I fried any components because I can get into my boot menu, I can run the utility (which I am doing now & it takes a loooooong time), I can get into set up. I was trying to reformat, but the comp won't read the disk in the drive. SO, now I have to try the tips I got from my friends Billie's computer whiz cousin & see if it works. If it doesnt, I will have to take it in to someone.
The cousin sounded positive, rather than gloom & doom, when she told him the problem, so hopefully, his tips work for me.
In the meantime - all I can do is blog & reply to emails. Anything graphic intensive is put on hold until I reformat (which I wanted to do, but didn't want to be forced into). I can't even get on this computer til late in the afternoon - after Dockman gets up. *sigh* What will I do with myself?
Talk (to someone, maybe)
Fun day tomorrow! Unless I can get me reformatted. Wish me luck that I didn't fry anything & I can get it all sorted!
