Every laptop owners worst nightmare….. opening it up to discover that the hard drive would no longer boot the system.
Then to discover that it no longer exists. With an essay due in 3 weeks and going back to uni in days to come the panic sets in. With this showing up on the screen and it being the Easter bank holiday weekend. I knew I’d be days without it. Hopefully.
Now In all this I thank myself because 2 weeks prior to this I overhauled my laptop. Meaning I took anything I didn’t want to loose and it was put on to my 1TB external hard drive. Now if that died I think I’d cry. Next I got on to the phone trying to ask anyone knew what I had done and how to fix it.
In the end I waited till Tuesday. A WHOLE 3 DAYS (cry’s from being detached from technology for this long) later I did take it to the computer shop. To tell me that the hard drive had completely crashed and I had lost everything and there was no recovering anything. The only thing to do was replace the hard drive and the system. Costing me (well my mum) £130!!!!! Fingers crossed though because my laptop is classed as an essential to me and I have dyslexia the university may cover this cost.
Lesson learnt BACK UP EVERYTHING!!! Another thing I found I need to spend less time online. During this time I was very bored. I think I need to find other things to fill my time. Unfortunately I rely on technology way too much. But also on a positive note the laptop returned to day and I was able to write this blog post in time…
