Been able to conquer & keep going solo, with just a lil research here & there for the last few yr.s, It's been like 4 yrs, since CRASH, but this week, 2, times... UGG!!! I read the topics & see everyone talking about SLOW pcs, well since moving to town, & getting off dial up, $5 garage sale laptops (Usually needing just power cords, & given my same sex counter parts just see electronics as over whelming, I do <3 me some of those over whelming boxes My husbands saved $$$ in speeding tickets since, etc... + routers, etc.. out the gazoo, & I don't have near the smarts 90% of the ppl in here do... ).
TO THE POINT: Sat, Sept 12, been plagued for weeks with a VERY SLOW pc. Yes I know it's ANCIENT (But someone pd around $1,500 for that dell, ? 10 yr.s ago, but the lil yuppies lost the cord ... So, what to heck, I'll do a $5 gamble special given I don't game (FB if any). I've gotten lazy, pc going slow, temps outside, making my area of the house up in temp... bs of ebay buyers, ALL has had it's tow...But the DOUBLE crash in 3 days, taking with it, my latest pics, that had been edited ;( & it's not uncommon for me to take 100-200 pic's of EACH item.
I know I can go & get the pictures off my sd card, BUT, hundreds, & hundreds, not edited, + a good 100 of the latest are pics I took to help an elderly friend that REALLY scraps & probably lucky a few ticks were all that I pulled off me.
Sat. night, I rebooted after taking some old pics & things off, & CRASH!!!
Black screen, started stating something `to do with NTSF.... Hours & Hours, attempted anything & every thing.... Sunday morning, pretty much up, but something, again, after reinstalling win7, still can't connect to wifi in the hours, no sound on laptop, & had to start search for something to retrieve photos, so did, remembered I'd used EasUS... Gave me over 9k pic. any picture ever to have crossed my screen. After hours out in the Okla. heat for est. 500, I was desperate, so 1 by 1 started just attempting... some, & some wall paper backgrounds,
Come Sunday...CRASH... Went back to Ease, but really believe I goofed even more... So much retrieved...
Pulled the hard drive out, attached it externally to another pc here at the house, it too needs to be reformatted, bought it from a cell store going out of business. In addition, have another laptop that was a garage sale find, older
I'm so LOST!!! If I put it back in the laptop, I'm sure to get ???
My finances are shot my fundraising isn't doing very well after a week like this,
I've bee researching, & have seen SEVERAL post with REALLY simular issues, so I'm still trying to conquer it all myself behind the scenes, because I can see the experts are BUSY, BUSY, BUSY....
has had me down a week...
