It died. Just... Died!

I spent so long setting it up and putting all my photos on and stuff. And now it has to go.

I was so excited. It was all white and shiny and I luffed it sad

<weeps>

bloody hell. That must be some sort of record! I hope the shop is replacing it for you with no fuss.

Silly question alert (based on my friends dopey uncle) - you have recharged the battery I take it?

He bought a second hand laptop. Went ballistic at the seller. Turned out he'd never plugged it in.

What has happened exactly? Chances are it's sortable.

Had the same thing - the day after it was delivered!
Mine was a Dell. Needless to say I got a refund, not a replacement!

No, tis a late laptop. It has ceased to be and shuffled off this mortal coil.

It was showing a black screen with something about rebooting on. I rang PC World and a very nice geek (with a VERY sexy northern accent) took me through potential fixes. Nothing worked. He said it was totally random and he had no idea what was wrong. So I have to take it in to be exchanged, which I'll do tomorrow ad I've been on lates at work.

What a royal pain in the arse!

They exchanged it. Yay! Apparently the problem is that the laptop can't see the hard drive. Which is apparently totally weird and random.

I did lose Microsoft office though. Damn.

One of mine lasted 3 days. 3 days!

Hard drive failed and back to PC world we went....

Little buggers. I shelled out for a Toshiba too as I had a Compaq that died after 2 months.

This time I'm putting nothing on it till I've got an external hard drive.
