Flute

More than a little banged up

The old comp is going from bad to worse. Both the DVD and CD burners started refusing to acknowledge blank media as burnable. In the process of trying to fix things, I started getting blue screen of death messages that I never knew existed. I think my nearly brand new hard drive might be failing. I was one click away from ordering an RMA from Western Digital when I decided to try a couple of other things. I got the system to boot up again, but it is limping very badly. Progs are running somnolently. I think I am going to have to make a decision within a day or two about whether to shoot this horse.
