*headdesk* aaaah well. Laptops are evil.  
*sigh* Feel free to skip, this is just me headdesking.

So, thing is, I have two computers. The one I have at home, and the laptop, which is supposed to be like new even if it's an old model.

I've had the one at home since I was fifteen and these are not its better days. Mostly, it's not exactly slow but it tends to get stuck a lot of times and I can't open Photoshop and the internet at the same time, to say one. Which is also why I'm behind on PS stuff, but anyway. So, lately, since opening Word is becoming a pain too, I had just started to write fic directly on the laptop and then post it from the other one since I didn't really have to do much in Word. So today I finish the first draft of one thing which has been going on since two months and I was almost done with the other dreaded thing which I didn't like. So I open it this evening to write a couple of ficlets and revision the other one.

Suddenly it turns off on its own. I open it again and it says that it can't locate the operating system. And I don't even have the cd because it was from my mother's office and it didn't come with the package. I tried to make the thing work again for one hour but no luck. Which means, if the operating system is busted, I don't know if I can recover what was on there. Fine, I have most of what I had there on here too, but I still needed to pass those other two. *headdesk* That was not what I needed. *headdesk again* Ah well, tomorrow I'm asking at some computer shop near here but really, wft? I can't believe this one I'm using now had been working for six years and that one who was used once before I started using it in November is already gone once. Not what I needed and not on a Monday indeed. *sigh* I really need to start taking better care of this one.

Here's some aspirin, a pillow and Boone to massage your head. You need it after all those *head-desks*.

I just spent half an hour looking for my iPod and panicking that I accidently threw it out when I cleaned my office this weekend. Just when I had given up hope, I found it under my scanner of all places. So I am sending you my good luck. Once I had a computer problem that sounded very much like yours, and after refusing to start, the next day it worked long enough for me to grab everything I needed. It died for good a few months later, but let’s hope there is enough life left in it to recover what you need. Try again in the morning.

*grabs Boone* Yeah, give me a massage please. I need it, especially since the one that I can't recover because I didn't have half on it on google docs and the other half sort of handwritten was the one I was fighting with.

Mm, that's interesting. Tomorrow I'll probably turn it on again and see if I manage to recover that at least. Also because there was some university stuff which wasn't exactly necessary but still, getting it back would be more trouble than it's worth. It's strange because the thing was almost new but let's hope it does decide to work again. And thanks. ♥

I'm sorry your computers are making you crazy. :(

The second one apparently fixed... well, there was a part which kind of slipped out and I guess it was where the operating system was? :/ IDK but it looks like it's working now. I hope it stays like that but meanwhile I passed all I need on the other one, hoping it doesn't die. ;) ♥

Non voglio darti false speranze ma credo (e sottolineo credo) che anche se il sistema operativo è andato sia "tranquillamente" possibile recuperare tutti i dati dall'hard disk, basta che l'HD in sè funzioni e non venga formattato.

Credo sia possibile farlo sia reinstallando un nuovo sistema operativo sia collegando l'hd ad un altro pc. Ma entrambe sono cose che farei fare ad un tecnico...

In bocca al lupo cmq!!

Grazie! Mah, pare che avessi un componente staccato, l'ho fatto vedere ad un negozio, si è rimesso a posto e pare che funziona... incrociamo le dita, e si spera che non mi faccia più lo stesso scherzo. Non è stato esattamente divertente. ;)

gah, I'm sorry. frigging computers!

I keep saying I need to backup and buy a hard drive to do so, this is my nightmare. I really hope everything is better for you soon!
