Not again!

February 27, 2006

I switched on Verita this morning trying to get some mail before I headed off to get the offer letter from the company I’m due to work for.

Verita refused to start up, and kept hitting me with this “Windows was not able to start, please choose option” kind of screen. I got pissed rather than freaking out, and so I borrowed my bro’s comp.

I came home, decided to see if the WinXP cd would allow me to restore my comp, and received a very scary notification:

Your harddisk is either damaged, faulty, unformatted, or not formatted properly. You need to reformat it.  

NOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!

So I sent Verita back. Hopefully I’ll get her back tomorrow evening. Cross your fingers.

    sigh… all you need to do is run scandisk from the startup console.

  2. Not a computer expert and I get just as scared whenever a message like that ever pops up. Verita will be alright, I am sure… hard disks are sensitive stuff…
