After about 6 calls to tech support, and endless CHKDSK commands, I deemed my hard drive unrecoverable, and the tech walked me through reformatting. I am left with what are the original factory settings, which amounts to Internet Explorer and some cool windows games.
Yes, I did have a backup of important files… so I didn’t lose EVERYTHING. But as I sat down and tried to remember the myriad of software and downloads I had on my pc, I started to sniffle.
I am in no mood to rebuild the last 4 years of computing.
And since my hardware is getting ancient already (shudder the thought), I figured I might as well nix the rebuilding of the old data and bite the bullet and invest in a new desktop for the family.
I hate technology.
