Laptop death

My laptop’s hardrive died today. I am sitting in a computer lab at the SLC right now. I don’t even know how I am going to deal with this. I was just on the internet and I suddenly got a strange blue screen shut down and now it won’t turn on. When I reboot it I get an error that says "disk drive error has occurred Pres Ctl+Alt+Del to restart" Which only brings up the error again. Safe mode only pulls up a sticky key error and basically I don’t have much hope at all for the poor thing.

The kicker is that I had been using my laptop while I was carving to zoom in and get things perfect. Fortunately I already printed the really difficult to see unless you tilt the laptop screen layer so working from a print-out may work out alright for me. I won’t be able to add any any additional audiobooks after I finish 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea.

This may mean I get an awesome laptop shaped graduation present from my folks and I certainly won’t be goofing off as much between now and graduation but trying to be positive isn’t cheering me up at all. I have a lot to do today and I am so bummed out that I can’t even function. I just want to cry and play guitar.

You were a good laptop

    I’m so sorry Hannah! You must be so stressed right now. Maybe tonight I can come rescue you (if I’m not too bogged down myself) and we can go get ice cream or something. ♥

    That laptop was never “good” to you.

  3. Repair?

    Don’t you know who I am?!

    I’m the Juggernaut bitch!

    Get that thing packed up for me and when I come down for your show next week I can give it a look over. There’s still a slim posibility to save your data on the drive or repair the system. If it’s a disk/partition error I have it handled in spades. If it’s hardware error then that’s trickier. You don’t sound like you really care about the contents so much as the timing though. Either way though, it’s good you have everything you need from it in the lead up to the show.
