Computer Says- NO

If you want to read the blue screen of death click on the picture.

I haven’t been about for a couple of days because my computer has decided to go on strike.

It started on Wednesday, when it would refuse to save any documents, then it wouldn’t boot up, then it wouldn’t do anything but sit there frozen.

I did all the usuals;-restore, disk check, updates, repair, clean install and finally praying to the computer god, but nothing worked, the “blue screen of death” became more and more frequent.

The little bugger would wait for me to get halfway through a blog and then crash, I tried taking it by surprise and doing a document one paragraph at a time and then saving it but, no, it would wait for me to continue and then crash as well as scrambling the document I had saved.

So I have decided on radical surgery, a new hard disk, which has been installed and is apparently working OK.

So hopefully all will be back to normal tomorrow.

Think you put the jinx on my computer too!!! It threw a wobbly, did a couple of reboots and turned itself off and refused to be turned back on again!

Guilty by association:)

Personally I blame the Government
