Dang Computer!

Yesterday I decided to reboot my machine (about 1 pm) since it had been awhile since I had. Boy was that a mistake! It would not reload WIN XP, couldn't even get it to start in safe mode for several hours.

I found my way into the set up and turned off the multi something on the hard drive (read that on a blue screen error, least that what I think they meant). Got it up in safe mode but didn't really know what I was looking for, lol. I know just enough about PCs to be dangerous! Next time it rebooted nothing would load again, couldn't even get into system restore or safe mode.

Let the dang thing endlessly loop while it would attempt to open windows, would stop and start over again and again and again and again....you get the picture. Went and took a bath. Later got back in safe mode long enough to set it back to a different restore point but it still wouldn't boot up right again.

Called around to see what the geeks are getting these days. Talked to who I believe was the guy's dad. This one sounds reasonable, lives close by and does house calls. Figured I'd call back first thing this morning and catch him before he left the house.

Well, around 8 pm Sara and I are eating dinner and I hear windows open music and all! Amazing! I'm still going to call this guy in a few weeks (if it lasts that long) and have him give her a once over. As long as no one turns it off we should be ok for now.

We don't have a land line so can't hook up the ol' dinosaur either. I sure hope & pray that this thing keep running until I can take the time (& money) to get it tuned up.
