I got home yesterday afternoon to find my computer frozen up, and saying it was locked. I tried to hit CTRL ALT DELETE
and the power button, but no success getting it to shut off. Soooo....

I unplugged it.

Now when I reboot, I get the blue screen of death telling me that windders shut down to prevent damage. I tried rebooting in safe mode, but same response.


My online status will be sporadic, but I'm thankful for my little clamshell and Epoch just down the street.

DOH! Unless decibel45 can remind me how easy it would be to hook up my old 'puter? I *think* it's in decent enough working condition to get online while I get the Dell doorstop fixed.

You forgot the serious possibility that windows has simply shit it's drawers again.

Did you check to see the status of those lights on the back of the Dell? I know when my parents computer was having issues after the hurricane, I was able to deduce the problem with my Dell manual and the lights on the back of it.

I think the problem is a wet vibrator left sitting on top of the thing.

Oh wait, did I just say that in pubic?

Like I always say - it's always the simplest issue causing the problem. I bet she didn't check the batteries in that thing either :P
