Where is Jennifer Lately?

Well, my computer died.  I’m at work (even though I’m on vacation) just so I can check my email, etc.  The poor old machine started spontaneously spawning processes until the CPU was working at 100% capacity.  I did what I probably shouldn’t have:  shut the thing off.  When I tried to turn it on again, it said, “Windows cannot start because the following file is either missing or corrupt:  hal.dll.  Please reinstall.”

My computer guy says that half the time this happens he can get the files back.  The other half… well…  Let’s just hope I’m one of the lucky half… Kay?

  1. I had a similar thing happen 3 computers ago, and all my files were saved by the talented technician. This was a very good thing because my patient reports are on computer. If you need a new computer, this is the time of year to get a good deal.

  2. Oh crap, Jennifer, that’s too bad about your computer. Here I thought you were just enjoying a long Labor Day holiday! I would be lost without my computer at home. I hope everything’s up and running for you soon.
