So I'm finding that my Fujitsu laptop is like a hard drive oven.
It looks as if my new disk in it may have failed-- it's only been
in there for a year or so (edit: since last august), and the last one failed..
In all fairness this one is a Hitachi (*cough*IBM*cough*) Travelstar, so
where the fault lies, I don't know. I'm trying to recover my ntfs partition,
and it's being a real pain. Might just do a fresh install, but if
the drive is what's failing, I should wait til I get a new one.
But if the laptop is killing the drives, maybe it's time for a new
laptop.. :/ spent all day dealing with this shit, makes me hate
computers. oh well, anyway, I'm not losing any data thankfully
(hooray for backing up non-replaceable data. oops I forgot to back
up WINNT\, oh well (it's a pain to backup anyway) ).
Having said that, if it wasn't for the heat, I would completely love
this laptop. But it gets soo hot. bleh who needs laptops anyway, they
just break all the time.
