    Sorry to hear of your computer probs. Hope it all works out for you.

    You know if you can't boot up, you can remove the hard drive, place it in an external case, and hopefully you can get to your pics that way.

    Ah noooooooooo!
    My nightmare has happened to you!!!

    Knock-on-wood, our last crash was in 2000, long before I began to store my photos on a harddrive (they were negatives in my "hardware"-negative-files - and prints in albums :D), but I had a huge translation - difficult, hard work, all technical terms and expressions, on it. I was beside myself, crying, really.

    My husband, aka inbuilt-computer-whizz, managed to fix it. No loss. Phew!

    hopefully you can recover them. i regularly do backups or upload them onto my online photo site so that if my computer does bust, the pics are safe!

    That's why a second hardrive comes in handy. Buy a new hardrive don't erase the first one. Start from scratch and transfer the pics.

    You can get 80 gig hardrives for like $50?

    Please tell me you know this.

    Sooooo sorry to hear this happen to anyone!


    But at the same time soooo glad you posted it! I haven't backed up for nearly a month and just needed this scare to remind me!:confused:

    Fortunately I have all my photos and essential stuff saved to a second hard drive but that still won't save everything if the computer gets stolen or worse!:(

    Time to get the old tape drive out again! :lol:
