I found a repair shop that claims they can not only repair my computer, but also save all of my data 🙂 For a modest price, anywhere between $75 – $125 they can reload Windows without the lose of any of my files and settings, and do it all in under 2 weeks.
So I’ve left it with them, it’s no good to me as a boat anchor, and we’ll see what happens.
Meanwhile, I’ve purchased an external hard drive capable of storing more files and data than I could ever hope to create, and I forge onward with a renewed sense of BACK UP YOUR DATA, STUPID!

Power to the People!
Make Love, Not War!
Fingers crossed, everyone!
