AWOL

Just a note to let you know that I am, for all intents and purposes, off line. That is until I can get a replacement computer. Mine has expired. Died. Succumbed. The tragis thing is that it took with it my photos, files, etc. Unless someone knows how to retrieve info. Anyway, will check in as I can. Take care, my friends. Hope my departure isn't of long endurance.

There are ways of retrieving files from the disk. Simplest (if it applies, namely if the drive is functional and it's something else that's making your 'puter dead) is to move it to another computer. If the drive is bad, there are retrieval services available that can work wonders, but they ain't cheap. If you can't afford it now, don't throw the drive away!

Mmmmm... this is one of my specialties at work. Retrieving files off of dead computers. (And like Timmy says, it involves simply taking the drive out and slaving it to another working machine. Usually this is enough to read the data on it. If not I have a collection of "magic" programs that often work wonders. If the drive itself is dead, hardware wise, then it usually means that a company like Drive Savers needs to get involved and THAT is were the big $$$ comes into play.)

Re: AWOL

So the answer to this person's problem is to ship his drive to Randy wayne and let him transfer those pic to disc!


Sounds logical and simple to me!

Re: AWOL

As far as a new computer goes....

There is a company called TIGERDIRECT, that is offering a onr terrabyte, quad core processor for $ 259.00.

The following was sent to me.

Here is the email special I was telling you about. The kit also needs the following to be finished: CPU fan, 20.00, DVD burner 25.00, and Windows 7 PRO would cost 149.99 with the kit. This is a 64 bit system, so you couldn't use your old Operating System, unless it happened to be 64 bit. About 465.00 total with the free shipping offer! Probably worth about 650.00-750.00 or so after built. Should be quite a barn-burner!

This is a nice machine, all you have to do is put it together.

Randy probably also has some leads to some great deals also.

Just charge it my friend, it's only plastic!

What are the specifics of it's death? Is the Hard Drive bad? If not it's easy to get the stuff off of it.

If it's an AMD I probably have a fan around anyone can have lol.

BTW It's only a 64 bit system if you install a 64 Bit OS... All CPUs for the last few years have been 64 bit CPUs. It just means you can install a 64 bit OS on it, but most ran 32 bit OS

You might also make sure it has a power supply and make sure the MB has on board Video otherwise you have to spend more money on a video card...and without a video card I would never call a system a barn burner hehe

Also if you do get a card the stock power supply in the case might not be enough

Also I don't know what a one terabyte processor is...I know what a 1 terabyte hard drive is. Does this system come with a hard drive? What about Ram? If not you have to spend more money on RAM too.
