I'm hoping someone can enlighten me about a recent problem I had. I left my older (6 year old) E-machine on while we went out to eat saturday evening as I always do and AOL was not signed on. When I returned from the restaurant the on- off button was blinking and making strange noises. I could not open the cd rom to do a recovery. The next day I took the tower to the Best Buy Geek Squad and they told me the motherboard was shot. I have everthing on a surge protector and there was no storms in the area.
The next day after turning on my Acer Aspire laptop it started acting up after it loaded properly and was working correctely. It is now in crash mode and says that I loaded some program that won't let me recover or go to safe mode or anything that I have tried to repair this laptop.
On Monday when I got my new HP desktop, after I hooked everything up, my Xerox LCD Monitor would not turn on and it is only 2 years old.
Do I have a curse on me or is it just a coincidence that all of these items quit working so close together?
Please tell me what I can do to recover my laptop as I do not have a recovery disk for it.
I realise that I am asking a lot here but need to ask one more thing and that is, can I take the harddrive from my crashed desktop and put it into my HP desktop to recover my photos and files? Will this cause a problem with the new desktop?
