What I've Said Those Close to Me Pick a Day, Any Day All About Me QaF Vault - great fanfic! In Days of Yore In Days of Yore On to the Future On to the Future

or what I do between bouts of Real Life
I've had a feeling of impending doom all night...
... and finally discovered what it was.

I was running a virus scan of my PC, and it found one virus - but was still scanning.

I got up for dinner.

When I sat down again, I forgot that I had been virus scanning, but found it odd I had no windows open (I had about 5 earlier). I figured the S.O. had shut them down.

So I decided, brilliantly, to restart the machine, so the cache would clean out (it has a program for that). Because, you know, I hadn't turned it off for a while.

So I did.

And then came back, and noticed that the HP Invent screen seemed to be up for a long time.

Then it went to a cursor at the upper left corner of the screen. Forever. Literally.

I hit the reset button, and it immediately turned off.

Hit the On button - it did the same thing.

For 4 times.

I think maybe something ate my PC.

Waaaaaah! I have all my Fic in there! And my vids, and, and... 3 years in the fandom!

*runs in circles, tearing hair*



Thank God I have a laptop, too. It's now worth it's weight in gold, instead of as a backup - although it can't compare to the 220 gb I've lost!!!!

Things just really aren't going your way at all.

Oh dear, you poor thing! That's so awful. :( I really hope everything gets restored...are you going to have it looked at? Maybe it can be fixed, and all your work will be fine... Something similar happened to me, but the computer worked enough to turn on. My uncle was able to save the parts of my hard drive that I wanted, and completely re-build it. He did it in about a week - it's a computer programer, I believe. Try not to loose all hope.
