My Dell Laptop Crashed

I didn't know what the term "blue screen of death" meant until I experienced it the other day. My laptop just keep re-booting and each time, the dreaded blue screen would appear for a split second.

Until now.

So $200 later at Staples, I was told it was a software problem and the laptop will be restored to its orginal condition (yeah, right! - like I believe that) and all of my data will be saved and re-installed.

Don't know what I will find when I get it back in a few days.

And to think, I had "back up" listed on my to-do list as one of my things to do and just didn't get around to it.

Back up data, people.

Or, just go buy a new laptop.

But hey, why not be happy and enter my 700 follower giveaway here.

I'm familiar with blue screen of death, the white and black ones too... Very frustrating! Computers are great Carmie, when they work:@)

We didn't have our Dell desk top model very long before it died on us too. We have a MAC now and I love it. I won't ever have any other computer other than a MAC now. It is so much easier than the Dell ever was to operate plus it is not as easy to pick up viruses on it.

Good luck Carmie!

Strangely, I get that blue screen from time to time (Dell too). I shut everything down and reboot and it's always been fine. I think it's a glitch with this laptop. I'm probably working on borrowed time...
Best,
Susan

Ugh, not cool. I hope they are right and you get everything back. I've been really lazy about backing up as well. It's just one of those things that's too easy to put off!
