Yeah, I mean, it’s not as if the motor in your HD burnt out or anything (unlike some drive’s that weren’t sitting too far away from me not too long ago… :fungah: ) even if you want rid of the PC as a whole, you should be able to bleed everything off of that HD onto the new one (safe to assume it’ll be bigger than the old one).
Either way, though, your problems does indeed still suck. :thud:
Sometimes all you have to do is a small change here or there to get it working again. You say it doesn’t boot… Do you get a blank screen when you turn it on or does it display error messages? Or (I hope not) does it show crazy rubbish characters in the screen?
CC, if I could explain it, I’d be fixing it. But hey, the PoS is so fucked up it does something right for a change… Either way I won’t get a new keyboard until Friday. sighs Library it is until then. BTW, Ren, it’s effectively blank: Gateway logo shows up, name slowly appears… then nothing. No boot progress bar, not even a frickin’ beep…
