... something horrible might happen to you like something horrible happened to me today. fancy black laptop was running great. popped the lid back expecting it come out of stand-by mode like it always does. pleasant wallpaper image appeared, but then melted away into a solid screen on white.apparently the motherboard (or at least that's what the technician thinks) is done for. if its the HD, i don't know what i'm going to do. jump off a bridge i suppose. i haven't backed up a single file yet .. 2 mos. of lecture notes, case briefs, etc. - if its law school related it's on that laptop ... don't be a victim like me.back up your files. this isn't funny.
