Computer woes

Good morning everyone.  I hope you are having a better day than I am.  I seem to have lost Microsoft Office, my  personal email, my photos and who knows what else.  I am able to get on the internet using Firefox so I can get email on my gmail account and get into my blog.  I will probably be taking the computer to the doctor today so it may be a few days before I visit you.  I may go to the Library and use their computer to visit you.  But who knows when I will be back.  I sure hope they can restore it and find all my photos.

See you when I can.

So sorry Barb...that is a total bummer!!!! I hope you can get back what you have lost....I've been there, done that and I know my heart sank when I read your blog this morning. Computers are great when they are working right but when they are not or when some crazy person decided to infiltrate your personal stuff that is really maddening to say the least. Hugs

I hope it is fixable, it was my Mother Board that gave up the ghost when all this began for me a few weeks ago. fingers crossed for you!

Kaya said...

Barb, that is not good at all. I am sorry for what happened to you. I hope you will fix it. Everything can be fixable. I hope you return back all your pictures.

I will be thinking about you and hoping that everything will be normal again.

I think it was Jen, of MuddyBootDreams that had the same problem recently. I hope it gets fixed. Maybe check out her blog (on my sidebar) to see what she did. Hang in there!!

Oh No! I hope they can fix it quick...I'm sure they can pull your photos off of the hardrive for you...I don't think it costs much. My dad just had them do it when his crashed.

Dearest Barb;
So sorry to hear about PC problem (woes)! We all know how it makes us feel. Hoping the doctor can find what the problem is.

Oh no, I hope you get the problem fixed soon, there's nothing like having computer problems.

Oh dear, I am SO sorry.
I hate having computer problems (because I'm not smart enough to know how to fix them) car problems, (same reason, as above) etc...
Hoping you get everything back as it was.

Sending good luck wishes your way!

ladyfi said...

Oh no - so sorry to hear this!

amanda | wildly simple said...

Oh, Barb! Good luck!
I haven't been on to blog or read other blogs much in the past couple of weeks, because we've had computer / internet troubles too.. starting with an outage in our area, and then another issue that was misdiagnosed. During the times our internet HAS been working, we've been celebrating the birthdays of three sons and much more. A busy time of year, and no fun having extra issues thrown your way. Sure hope everything is recovered for you.

good luck..

Hope your pictures survive! :)

Robyn G said...

Good Luck with your computer issues, Barb. I am going through computer stuff too. It's frustrating when we just want them to work and we have no idea how they operate.

Zoey said...

I feel your pain, Barb. I hope they can fix it for you!!

genie said...

I have had over a year like this and it is SOSOSO frustrating. Finally bought a new laptop and it is still a pain in the neck. Blogger can be such a pain. Hope you find all of your stuff. I have lost so much thru the years. g
