Arrgh!, I had to wipe out my system to fix my PC. I had to return it to the factory settings. I lost everything on my PC. Now I have to start from scratch, but what really upsets me is I lost all my photos of my family. We're talking early 1900's onward. All my yard photos, games(50+) and music.There was over 18 hours of just Meat Loaf and another 12 hours of Loreena McKennitt and Connie Dover  I couldn't burn anything onto disc, because the DVD-ROM doesn't work and I haven't any UBS's for downloading back ups, nor an external hard drive.

When I re-downloaded Google Chrome, it won't play videos. I get a message saying, that I need to update the WidevineCdm, but when I try do that, it won't update. All I get is this message: "Status - Component not updated". Arrgh!

I have to go to bed now. I'm going to the King Richard's New England Renaissance Faire tomorrow. I've gone almost every year. I believe I've only missed 4 out of the 36 years it's been running. I love the BBQ turkey legs, they look and taste like ham.

sorry to hear about your computer problems and all your pictures :( I wonder if maybe reinstall it or like siguie says put Linux on it instead! I chickened out putting Linux on my computer.

I don't have a rescue file or disc. They didn't provide one when I bought the PC. Ugh.

MacC my condolences on the lost media. :investigate:

FYI: Microsoft generally doesn't provide "Recovery Discs" anymore, you have to make them yourself. Just ask your systems help thingy for "Create Recovery Drive" and be sure and put a check  in the Box that says something like "include system files". Most of the time when WIndows gits borked to the point you need the recovery drive it's one of the system files that's messed up so be very sure and include the system files :yes:

Oh and the "disk" will probably need to be a USB drive most likely in the 16GB range ... maybe you can make DVDs ... but I've never helped anyone with a DVD thingy on a computer in more than a decade so dunno.


Despite Klainey's cowardice you really should consider adding a second OS boot option :yes: Just create a second partition of like 50GB and install a Linux flavour :yes:

That way when Windows inevitably fails you can boot into Linux and save everything :yes: PLUS do everything that WIndows does :whistle:

Oh and you can also just create a Linux usb and boot from that if you want BUT it runs much better on it's own drive :yes:

Here's what I bought at Sam's Club a year ago. I have so much on it! I think it was $29.00
Right now the online price at Sam's is 19.00 when it's in stock.

----------------------------

And this is the one I bought last July at Sam's Club... what a deal! I paid $39.00 on sale - otherwise $49.00
Online might be cheaper

I hope that helps... it's quick and easy.


------------------


Of course with all the videos and photos you collect... an external HD would be ideal.

Sorry, Mac.  It's maddening when it goes down and you lose. Jim offered up stuff that works.  I have My Passport but not the Ultra.
