Well, I have an update on my computer. After my last post I did some research online and thought maybe it was a software thing. So I went home with some new insight and did some testing. I don’t think any of my hardware is damaged, but I think ALL of my software and data is toast. Kaput. Sianara. Gone. Dammit.
Using fdisk I can see the drive and partition information, but DOS won’t recognize the drive. I can’t tell you how much that sucks. I did a backup of my hard drive about a month ago, so I think (*hope*) that I’ll be able to recover my data.
But, on the plus side, a new computer is on the way. I also did some research on new computers, and I found a great deal on a new Dell (DUDE, I’m getting a Dell!) laptop. So, I should have a new computer in a couple of weeks. And once I get all of my data back, I’ll reinstall the O/S on my old system and list it on eBay. So it looks like everything is going to work out.
My new system should arrive week after next. I don’t get a new computer very often, so this is kind of exciting.
