My New Laptop… Dead.

March 21st, 2010 1 comment

So I got me a brand new laptop last week. Well, more accurately, work got it for me, and I was all excited about it. For one thing, it’s the first time I’ll be using Windows 7 outside of my home media network. I completely skipped vista, and 7 looks promising, so I’m excited.

For another thing, there were some great hardware upgrades.

So I set everything up to my satisfaction at work, bring the laptop home, boot up and ZAP the thing resets, and won’t boot any more.
Apparently, the hard disk fried.


Good thing I didn’t throw out the old one just yet.

Anyway, hope to get a replacement in a few days, and we’ll see what happens.
