That title sounds more ominous than what the situation warrants, but to me...it's still a pretty ominous situation.
My laptop is dying. I've said this before and for months. I thought it was done for before Christmas, but it returned from the edge, and I went about my business.
Now, not so much. I couldn't log into Windows at all yesterday unless I used Safe Mode. And even then, it was spotty.
I ran a disk check overnight and was able to (slowly) log in this morning.
This time, I'm taking it seriously. I'm going shopping for an external hard drive (which I should have gotten months ago). I'm going to save all my files.
And then I'm going to breathe.
Wish me luck!
