Basically, this blog entry is all about my struggle to fix a problem with my laptop earlier this morning. If you just want to skip that crap, there will be an important piece of information at the end.
The problem started yesterday. I booted up my laptop, and the Windows startup screen showed up. After that, absolutely nothing. Total blackness. I restarted my laptop a dozen times, running startup repair a few times and doing a disk integrity check, and eventually the laptop worked as if nothing had been wrong.
Today it was worse. I spent an hour and a half shutting down and restarting my laptop, running every diagnostics program I could find, and blackness kept crawling across the screen after the Windows startup screeen. And it didn't even prompt me for a disk integrity check, not once. I'm assuming that's how the problem eventually solved itself yesterday.
*** IMPORTANT PIECE OF INFORMATION BEGINS HERE ***
I will be taking my laptop to maintenance ASAP, and by ASAP, I mean Monday as soon as I get out of work. I'm not sure how long the maintenanace will exactly take, but I estimate that it will take at least two days.
So basically, I will be offline for a few days starting from Monday.
Bye for now, and keep your fingers crossed for me that whatever is wrong with my laptop gets fixed.
