Battling computers

12062008(001)

Have had a busy weekend reinstalling Vista on Kim’s laptop. It died in my care on Thursday night and wouldn’t reboot. After spending nearly 24 hours trying to figure it out myself, Dell’s tech support (to be commended – the guy was very helpful) recommended that the only option was to reinstall the operating system.

In order to avoid loss of data, we managed to figure out that the command prompt would enable us to connect to the external hard drive and I managed to save the all-important music collection. Late nights though… didn’t get to bed until 4 am on Thursday (Friday) and 7.30 am on Friday (Saturday). Full days of searching, copying, waiting, watching, problem solving…

Stoked that Kim was able to DJ with the laptop last night without issue. Phew.
