My laptop died. I turned it off as normal on Thursday night. Today it would not boot up. Nothing. Nada. Zilch. I called Gateway support (thank goodness for Skype!) They tried to help but, like most "support" situations, they could do nothing. Take it to an authorized dealer they said. Yeah, easier said than done. I think the closest Best Buy is in Miami! The friendly, but difficult to understand, support person told me that if all else fails, I could simply load my recovery discs and start over. Tried that. Nothing. Nada. Zilch.
Soooo, don't know what I am going to do. I'll probably end up having to buy a new computer. I've been in agony all day over it. Guess I'll see if I can find some computer whiz to take a look at it. I hate the thought of loosing everything that is stored on it and not backed up on a CD. Until then, I will not be blogging for awhile. Check back once in awhile. I shall return. Just not sure when.
