Computer Issues

My computer is failing to start. It sounds like the hard drive died. I'm posting this from my wife's system, but there won't be a HOT5 today. I have a spare hard drive sitting around that I'm going to install and see what happens.


After the computer booted with the spare hard drive I decided to give the old one another try, mainly to see if I could at least move some critical files to a flash drive. I'm really bad about not backing things up until it's too late. When I pulled the old drive I noticed that the head was covered with a dense layer of dust. I cleaned it off, reconnected it, and it started right up. So I'm back in action.

  1. Am sorry for what happened to you. I guess you can learn from that experience and start backing up online. I give a link that will simplify the search for a good online backup. here; My friend and I use; because the don't charge for extra computers. They also offer 3Gb account for life.
