Computer Crash..Oops...

I spent the pass two days fixing my computer from a CRASH.  I am feeling pretty good as I managed to fix the entire computer by myself.  I couldn't restore to what I had but manage to restore to factory settings and hardware.

Let this be a lesson to me and perhaps others.  I had not change my "update" settings after my last computer fix by a professional.  He didn't set me up for auto updates..so then i had a bunch like 107 updates.  So I tried to update and something went terribly wrong.  CRASH!!

So then I just kept at it and tried and tried.  Finally about an hour ago I got it all connected and restored and here I am.   I have to say that I just became fearless in diving into the computer and following commands and saying a bunch of prayers *:D  It would jam up and I would shut it down and then let it and me rest and then get back to it.  Finally this morning I broke through and got to be able to "restore"...what a relief.  

I am one who is totally dependent on my computer desktop.  I do NOT have a TV so all my movies of tv programs I watch on my desktop.  All my bill paying is now done online and most of my communications is also done with the computer.  I also have four websites to maintain and communicate with as well as this blog.

A question for my lady friends???  Have you ever tried to fix your own computer when things jammed up and you could not get on line or get anything to respond with your computer?  Were you successful?  Well I can tell you that it saved me a couple  hundred dollars at least!!  And this has a wonderful feeling to it!

Congratulations on doing it yourself, Schar!! Not sure I could do it, but if it ever happens, I will remember your story and just keep at it :)

It's a good thing that you are able to reboot your computer, Schar. It can be really frustrating if you lost all the files that you made. Usually, it has something to do with the wiring and connections. But in any way, it's still best to consult an expert in computer. We all know how complicated and sensitive it is, especially the hard drives.
