    It is always fun when you come in on the tail end of a conversation

    I’ve had my old Computer for 10 + years and its given me the
    blue screen of death many times over.. It finally bit the dust last year and I had to bury it and go get a new one.. So far,
    so good. I’m keeping my fingers crossed just in case.

    Save your work to disk. Early and often.

    When I moved in with my wife we each had our own computer, didn’t last long


    Mine did have a few “irreplaceable” things on it, but not so much as others since I’m a bit of a Techno-Moron, and nothing I couldn’t live without


    Would have been a much bigger issue for me if there wasn’t another computer in the house

    We still have two computers in our house. That doesn’t help when I can’t use my computer and get to my work program though!

    Between my wife, three geek children and me, we have: eight(?) Macs, a minimum of three PCs (probably more), an Android tablet and an iPad, and three or four smart-ish phones. Plus my wife and I still have our slide rules from high school, and I own two abacuses. The two Mac LCIII models still work fine, but they’re a bit slow for modern software…

    Tapping on the keyboard isn’t going to do it. I spent two full days this weekend reviving a laptop.

    I had a desktop that while it didn’t die, it did go back to factory settings. I told people it had a nervous breakdown. Lost lots. Now I try to backup things on thumbdrive every once in awhile.

    If you have things on your computer you can’t afford to lose then you can’t afford not to backup.

    And then there are the pictures with sentimental value.

    @TrapperJohn

    Only if the data was properly saved. I believe that whatever file Adam had been working on when the crash went down was NOT properly saved, and thus, probably at least partly lost.

    Of course, there are failsafes in place that minimize the damage, so Adam may still have something to rebuild with, but that depends on just how “dead” is computer is at the moment, and if he can get it running again.

    I have a PC (not a Mac) and I’ve never had it BSOD, or crash in any way, except for when a fan failed. Of course, I don’t run Windows on it, I use Linux.

    Better call the computer doctor, Adam.

    I’ve had BSOD but a reboot usually solves it. Windows once told me that my hard drive had failed, so I replaced it…..there was nothing wrong with it.

    I ahd my Linux box have a severe kernel crash during my skills final yesterday. It’s not supposed to do that :(
