Finally the great nightmare happened. My computer crashed. My 3.5 years old Dell Dimension kaputed. I spent more than an hour with Dell very helpful technical support personnels to run through every damn tests and yeap, it is dead. I cannot even start in Safe Mode.
If you ask me, I think there is a conspiracy theory somewhere. Why is it every time some products warranty runs out, the thing will kaput? So, I have two options :
Pay RM224 for one-year 24 hour technical support and do the reformating myself.
Pay RM70 for one time, on site repair.
I will take the 2nd option first. And keeping my fingers and toes crossed that I can salvage the contents in my drive. Arrgggh….kick self. Why was I so lazy to burn CDs?
BTW, does reformatting means everything will be wipe off? What about those things not in the C drive but other hard disk? I have a D and E drive, each with 40GB diskspace filled with dunno how many movies, musics and my beautiful photos. Please, please someone tell me. Go down on bended knees and beg.
Now I am eyeing a Dell Inspiron, if only this PC will really die and cannot be resurrected.
