I just scored me a blue screen of death! And a bad one, too, hard disk failure(ing).
I figured I’d ask, though I’m pretty sure I know the 2 answers, and am currently efforting it, can it still be backed up with help of the boot disk?
I think I know what caused it. I opened it up (it’s a laptop), waking it from standby to a neverending pile of warnings from AVG, not virus or anything related (I’ve kept the wifi disabled since the move) but from some sort of missing or corrupt or whatever file or something (should’ve written that down).
I powered off when it became apparent that that would not stop and windows wouldn’t return, only to be greeted by blue screens, even in safe mode. I’m currently running diagnostics from the CD, hoping for the best.
And by 2 answers, I meant:
- No, you’re SOL
- Buy a Mac @JohnHutch
