I was hopeful that I could come on this morning with some good news about the computer after my son worked on it for a bit last evening. We actually were able to get it running last night — he took a look at it and said that some of my RAM had gone bad. Okay, he found out which of the 2 chips was bad, took it out and it worked. I then shut the computer down since it was late and I wasn’t planning on working any more.
So, this morning I went down to the dungeon with such high hopes (do you hear me singing that song right now?) But, now it’s not even recognizing my hard drive. I don’t even get the dreaded blue screen — I get nothing! My biggest frustration is that I haven’t backed up the “My Documents” file in some time and that’s where I store all my scripts, actions, etc. for Paint Shop Pro and Photoshop. And a lot of these I have purchased! Can you say ouch?
I’ve asked him to see if he can get the files off my hard drive — he thinks that he can. He was able to do that on his own computer when he was having problems just recently. Hopefully he can do the same for mine!
So, that’s my update for Monday. I’ll be leaving early this afternoon and will be back either late Wednesday evening or late Thursday morning. I will have the laptop with me and will be able to check my email.
