My internet withdrawal is over!
Took my laptop in Monday and they told me the harddrive was gone....not fixable...nothing retrievable. Thank goodness I had all the important things saved to an external hard drive. Now it is just details I will have to re-create.
And yesterday hubby brought home a new laptop for me....boy, my other one was truly a dinosaur! I am still getting to know this one and am loving it - altho still struggling with the bright red color.
And so far I have only heard a minimum of "I told you so"s!!!!!
