If you haven't done so recently. I'm very meticulous about running virus scans, system clean ups, etc.... so my computer is usually maintained pretty well. The last couple of weeks it's been running kinda funny so I was getting to think maybe I should back everything up. Yesterday in the middle of working **blink** the whole thing shut off. Couldn't get it to boot again and I tried everything. I finally pulled the hard drive and put it in another computer and ran it. The whole thing was very touchy and reset alot but I could get some of the info off of it. Luckily I got my important work and most importantly I got all my pictures. I have thousands of songs on another drive that I haven't tried yet that I'm hoping wasn't affected by this mess. The only thing I completely lost was all my bookmarks. That kinda bugged me until I thought about it and realized loosing those was better than loosing pictures. I don't know what happened yet. I may just try to format and start over but if the mother board is going to, I guess it's time for an upgrade. The whole thing still sucks though anyways IF YOU HAVEN'T BACKED-UP YOUR COMPUTER TO CD'S, DVD'S, OR WHATEVER, THEN DO IT TODAY!!!
