On Tuesday (of this week), I was writing a review that was due on Thursday. I was using Windows Live Writer and was just about to finish it up and hit publish when the laptop froze and completely turned off. No blue screen, nothing. Just crashed. I tried to turn it back on, but it would not. It just kept cycling through the start up screen.
All day Wednesday, I tried to figure out what was wrong. I did a diagnostic test and the hard drive failed. My review was on that hard drive! I had to order a new hard drive and figure out how to re-write my review. I had put so much into the original review, but couldn't remember everything. I managed to write it by hand and type it up using my kids Kindle Fire on Thursday morning before it was due.
I had just saved a bunch of my files to a flash drive, so I didn't lose much. I am hoping to have a better week next week and get my laptop up and running again.
