Got my computer back!

Recommended Posts

Apparently, mine was hit by lightning, along with several others in the area. THe computer repair shop had tons of repairs for the same thing. I DID have my surge protector on, but it was old. SO UPDATE YOUR SURGE PROTECTORS!!!! I didn't know they can wear out, but they can and should be updated every so often.

So, I lost my mother board and power source but the hard drive was ok so I didn't lose any thing. THANK GOD!!!!! I make a lot of brochures, business cards and posters for different people and organizations so I was very scared of what I could have lost. I usually burn discs and save everything but hadn't done it in a while. So, that will be done tonight!!!

Oh and a tip for anyone interested ~ when I am burning a disc to save all my photographs, I burn two. One I keep in the house, the other I keep at my safe deposit box. In case I have a fire, I still have a copy of my pictures.

So, $538.00 later, I am back up.
