Well, to my dismay.... My ALMOST two year old pc is now toast and I'm an ass for not getting the warranty or any other type of paid assurance. About 4 days ago my pc started running really super slow and then came to a complete stop with in 1 minute. I tried to get the Task Manager up but, with no luck. I did a hard boot and that's when it took me 3 hours to get back into my computer. I would eventually get to the log-in screen and it would just freeze. I did the ESC thing at start up and was able to do diagnostics - first two times failed and the third time the disk didn't fail so, I tried another start. I sat there at the log in screen for 15 minutes before hard booting and then going back into diagnostics and did a system restore - that actually worked but, took 15 or so minutes to get to my desktop.
Once I got to my desktop, everything ran just fine! No lag or anything. I did a restart and it restarted just fine but, when I shut down because I had to leave for a few hours is when it went down hill. I got home, booted up and NOTHING. I would get past the Scanning Hard Drive and just find a black screen. After sitting there for about 15 - 20 minutes I'd get Sign-In Initialization Failure. My hard drive will spin up during a scan (which ends in failure) but, is dead silent with a regular boot.
I'm really stressed out about this. San Francisco is incredibly expensive to begin with and I've been saving to move but, no where near the moving mark. Not even close. Student loans kick in in 3 months and I'm guessing (after having done the math on $47,000 over 20 years) my payments will be around $200 a month. That's just one loan, I haven't heard about the other one yet. I'm still paying off my CareCredit for my cat, my bill for glasses will be starting soon and now this crap! Everything that I CAN'T part with was on my pc including software that I'm not sure I can afford to replace. Ugh! I just don't need this crap right now! I have always been excellent about being on top of things - bills always paid early, rent always paid on time ($1500 for a crap hole studio in human toilette central down the drain) and everything. Why this crap always happens to me is beyond me and I'm exhausted......... Emotionally drained from trying to always make everything work and being the back bone of everyone around me. I've been trying to find a higher paying jobs but, when you live in a city that exploits your talents (I.E. I'm a polyglot that speaks, reads and writes 7 languages - well, one I can't write) and they want to pay you as if you were only an English speaker. I need a job that will pay me at least 300 more than I am now so I can pay for my insurance and co-payments (being treated for cancer isn't cheap and I have to pay the bulk of my medical bills) but there has been NOTHING! I'm thinking about trying to find a bartending job again.
Well anyways, I'm sinking into my dark hole of despair (which is really rare for me) and I'm communicating on a piece of crap Chromebook which I HATE! Can't stand this piece this waste of money - my tablet does more than this waste of space. So, I'm not sure when I'll be back because I'll probably be out peddling my fat old ass out on the street - hell, I'm in the right neighborhood for it, just hope I don't slip someone's pile of crap on the sidewalk.
Hope to see you all sooner than later but, my PCs destiny is in my hands and it needs serious medical attention!
Cheerios! Bon bons for bon bons! Toodles and rose scented fairy farts! ~poof~
I'm outta here for now!
