Blue Screen Of Death

BSOD-01

So, if it seems like I haven't been around much, see the above Blue Screen Of Death.  Yeah, my main computer won't even allow my to boot without crashing.  I had done a recent backup so I don't stand to lose much (if any) content, and was able to get all but about 1,700 of the most recent documents.  And those are probably just pictures that are probably on my camera, or pictures from Cora's camera that are on her PC, or blog content that's already been posted or can be reproduced.

I should be getting my new laptop in a few days.  Until then, I'm using the netbook.  Which is okay in a pinch, but it really isn't a "daily driver" for someone with hands as large as mine.  So if I'm not around as much this week, it's not you, it's my PC.

What are you getting to replace the old one with?

Ellie Mae said...

That blue is not pretty :(

But, yay for new computers.

Joshua - I hope to. I hope to.

Zibbs - I feel for you. I had a feeling this box (6 years old) was about due, but wanted to make it to the after Christmas sales. But it wasn't meant to be.

Cora - Bad timing, true.

SkyDad - Dell Inspiron 15 laptop. 6 GB RAM, 1 TB drive. It should be here Friday. This will be worse than when they re-imaged my work PC 2 months after they reimaged it with Windows 7. Trying to find all those install CDs and install codes.

Just been there, just done that. Sucks doesn't it? My netbook is more convenient than my tablet but that sucker is slower than me climbing stairs. : P

"Scope-Tech" has been included in the Sites To See for this week. I hope this helps to point many new visitors in your direction.

That thing looks dangerous...

Scope said...

So. Cal. Gal - Yes, it sucks, and what sucks even more is how the 80/20 rule applies here. 80% of the recover work took 20% of the time, but the last 20% is really being a pain. There will be a post on all of this later.


Jerry - Thanks for the promotion.

Candy - It was deadly!

Ouch! Well, it’s a good thing that you provided a backup of all your pictures and important files. You have a lot of documents stored in your computer, and it would be a real pity if your lose all of them. Good job, my friend!
