I was in my apartment the other day watching tv. my computer was sitting peacefully on its own tray when I decided to lift the tray from the table and bring it close to my lap. thats when it happened… this is so hard to talk about *cries* my laptop slipped from the tray and fell… yes fell to the table!! and things aren’t the same ever since!

the computer at first was acting weird and producing some weird noises, then it froze for like 10 minutes and finally it stopped working and was like (………….), nothing, no sound no nothing. I tried restarting it but the cursor refused to move. so I pressed the power button until the screen went BLACK.

The next 3 hours were one of the worst hours in human history! the computer wouldn’t startup and whenever I manage to turn it on, a very tiny question mark would appear in the middle of the screen…. I kept restarting for 3 hours. no results. and just when I was about to give up, it sprung back to life. poor little computer. now it takes me a MINIMUM of 20-30 minutes to start it up after each shutdown (it won’t comeback after sleep-mode so I have to shut it down each time).

20-30 minutes for a start up! can you imagine that? looking at the symptoms, one can conclude that the laptop is suffering from a major memory lose and schizophrenia (faqad ithakera), it forgot what it is and now it thinks its a windows!

    *looks around*

  11. the question mark simply tells you that the computer can’t find the boot table to know what its booting. Usually holding down the OPTION key will let you choose the boot drive manually.

    Other than that maybe its time to upgrade to a newer model as the newer models have 3D shock sensors that shut off the hard drive before it hits something while dropping from your hand.

    as for the worst time in human history… its an old laptop.. relax

  12. Yousef says:

    Wadhah Hussain I think the harddisk died, thats why it didn’t know what its booting. I never knew about the Option thing and how to manually choose the drive, so Thanks πŸ™‚

    I certainly agree that I need to buy a new laptop! but I’m holding on for the new MacBook pros, their new lineup.

    And hey, welcome to the blog πŸ˜€
