It started this morning. I was about to start working on my cover letter after leaving a quick note for Lucrecia-mun and replying to a few people in Daisychain.
And the keyboard stops working.
Completely out of the blue.
I tried restarting the machine. It wouldn't close down on it's own. I had to hold the power button and then it wouldn't turn back on again. Probably too warm - no biggie. I can go upstairs and work on it.
Or so I think.
There I am, typing away, mere seconds from adding "Yours sincerely" to the end when the computer restarts itself. Fine. I can always run the document recover thing and get it back, I think. But nooooo...computer has other ideas. I get a blue screen telling me that it needs to run a consistency check - fine, no problem, I'll go get a drink while I'm waitnig and see if the downstairs computer will work yet. It won't, I return upstairs to fine the monitor displaying a blank blue screen and not apparently doing anything. I give it a few minutes but since nothing seems to be working, I try to turn it off. Then I turn it back on again - and nothing. Nothing shows up on the monitor, it doens't do the little "beep" it always does after I've just turned it on and I can't do a thing.
Part of me hopes it may just be a problem with the monitor but a bigger part of me gets the feeling my computer is utterly fucked. I'm going to try to wait until my mother gets home so she can help me try swapping the monitors or something.
Anyway, downstairs computer works again so I've been able to finish my cover letter. I'm wary of downloading more anti-virus/anti-spyware/firewall stuff for Iain though as I think that's what started this mess. I'm running a virus scan now, then I'm going to do and anti-spyware thing and hopefully that will sort it out. In the meantime, I just have to pray nothing goes wrong with this computer.
I hope I can get it sorted before Iain calls, because then I might just leave the other computer until Friday or Saturday. And hopefully this won't affect my time on Daisychain. I just got started. I'd hate to have to declare a haitus this soon because the computer fucked up.
Anyway, I'm not going anywhere for the next few hours regardless of whether Iain calls or not.
And...stupid mun is stupid. >_< Forgot to log out of darkleporidae before replying to a post on godamongmortals.
I need more coffee.
