My Computer Crashed

Yikes... the computer crashed. Long story short: I tried to go on the internet, got the usual error screen saying to refresh, check to see if I typed the web address right. I restarted the computer a few times, and the internet still wouldn't work. 3 hours on the phone with an Indian tech support assistant and $50 later, everything on the computer is gone. Every single picture, music file, microsoft word document, everything. There were some really important business files that I never even thought of backing up on a disk. Tomorrow, and many days after, will be devoted to re-entering all the business data, which could take days. My computer is only a few years old, and this is the 3rd time that it has crashed. This time was the worst, because every single file was gone. Before, it was just the internet and some security software.

I'm going to be on the computer non stop, but I won't be on anything AG for a while. What was lost when the computer crashed is 100 times more important, and logging onto blogger or the doll boards is just a distraction.



  1. I am so sorry your computer broke, I know what that is like, It has happened to me many times.
    I really like your blog by the way. It is fun to read and it never gets boring.


  2. Oh my gosh I'm so sorry that happened Brooke! That happened to my mom's computer, and it was awful! I'm very sorry that happened!


  3. Wow, sorry to hear about your computer! My friend Linds always says -- you can't live with 'em, you can't live without 'em! Hope it gets fixed soon and you can recover all your stuff!

  4. Oh, how *insert swearword of your choice*
    Our computer broke when my older brother spilt coffee on the keyboard and my mum tried to use iTunes. *rolls eyes at ineptness of family*

    Hope it isn't tooooooo hard to get everything back :'( *hugs* And sorry for so many *****

  5. I am so sorry your computer crashed. That's terrible! I hope you can recover all your files! I hate it when computers aren't working- it's very annoying :-(
