I bought a used laptop a few days before I left Korea and came to the UK. It seemed just fine but a few days ago it crashed. Sigh, not then end of the world for a techie like me. I did a few things, and after a couple of hours of repair, the HD was running again.
Today I woke up to that wonderful BSOD again. Ok, let’s try that repair again. . I knew the drive needed to be replaced but I only got 2 weeks and a bit left here, was hoping it would last. So, I try to go into safe mode….. that fails! Great, the stupid odds that a sector of the drive is bad right where the important files are.
So, after a few more reboots, attempts to find some other tools, I finally got the HD checkdisk to run. Gonna be a few more hours before it’s finished…. sigh. Time to check out HD prices locally. :( I seem to have the time now :/
You know, I had next to nothing for work to do last month…. this month, got a fair bit. Figures huh?
