When My Desktop Died On Me

14 April 2009

Still recovering from it. I am very sad, that I lost most of my recent photos and files with it. I got too comfortable that nothing will happen and wasn't able to make back-up files. We tried adding a 1GB ram over the weekend. We thought that its the ram that was not working. So we tried to have it replaced. When we got home, my husband immediately fixed the CPU hoping it will work. All of a sudden it (the old desktop) bugged down. He found out that it was the Motherboard and Hard Disk that need replacements. Maybe that's why the Ram wasn't responding. It will take a very long time, before we can buy a new desktop.
I had no choice but to use my laptop for my internet access. And I am having a hard time working with Vista and Internet Explorer together. For the mean time, my husband might change my Laptop's OS to XP and hopefully install Firefox too.
I apologize if I'm not able to visit and make drops regularly. I don't really know what the problem is, I can't open more than 3 windows. I make drops through my Ec drop inbox, to make things easier. I hope my husband will be able to do something about it. My laptop works perfectly fine. Its one of the highest HP Pavilion ever released. I think its the system programs clashing.
EC drops and visits will continue Thursday! Have a nice day!

thats so sad... i know the feeling of losing files that were not backed up.. kaya nga I used external hd nalang para sa mga photos, clips etc. And di pa makakabigat sa pc. Sanayan lang sa vista, ako din dati.. nwei sana magawa na yan sooner. have nice day!

nku it happened to me na. sayang tlaga laht ng pics and files ko, sobrang nalungkot ako nun.

kaya nga ngayon I'm learning na e, I save groups of pics sa CD or DVD agad. wala pa kasi kming external HD pero I know worth the investment un.

Sana maayos na yung system ng laptop mo.

INgat! :)

I hate when that happens.. pero Mommy makakarecover ka din hihi

according to hubby, prone daw talaga ang mga blogger sa virus.. last few days sira din windows ko kaya di ako makapg post ng new entries.. for now I am using linux, mas safe :)

Too bad you lost your files. I hope the problem with your laptop will be fixed soon so you can make your regular visits and drops again.

awww... how sad. This reminds me to do my back up too. I don't want to lose my files or photos. :P

Oh too bad. In my case I use ext HD to store data coz I'm too lazy to backup, still risky though....
