My Computer Died

This morning I was cleaning my desk, smelled "hot dust" and that was that. The computer will not turn on. Of course I have two years worth of photos on it that are not saved anywhere else because I haven't learned my lesson from previous years. Emails I can't access. Legal documents unreachable. It all makes me feel sick.

I borrowed my son's computer to let you all know where I've gone. Hopefully, they can save my photos and get me back online soon. Just another day in my life. I'm no longer fighting the bad luck....just taking it in stride.

It sounds like your power supply died. We've had this happen before and it's just a matter of getting a new one installed. If this is your problem then your info should be fine. I hope you haven't lost any of your pictures or info.

Sounds like it overheated. Had the fan been running extra fast before it died? If you take the computer to a professional they may be able to retrieve your data, that is, if the hard drive hasn't fried. I hope all is not truly lost!

Every picture I have put on my computer is stored in Picasa Web Albums. I can access them any time. Try it when you get your computer back. So sorry.

oh my goodness, Gayle. I guess you just have to find some humor in it, right? I don't even know what to say. I'm sending good thoughts for your photos and files. hugs.
