So..... yesterday night, my PC gave me quite a scare while I was working on a commission. Windows froze and everything stopped responding. I thought 'Well ok, it must be a fluke, I have too many programs open and tabs on Firefox anyway' So I restarted. And then I heard my hard drive make some clicking sounds and I got a black screen saying 'A disk error occurred, press Ctrl Alt Delete to restart'. So I restarted again.
I got the same black screen.
And the dreadful error message.
*Hard drive clicking noises*
Wolfy started to panic. And it didn't feel good....all of the files in this 1TB HD, everyone has not been backed up yet. My freakin' career is in here
. Wolfy got scared. Ask LR7 for some bro help. Told Wolfy she most likely had to do some cleaning and maintenance.
Took the advice and this morning, I took my sweet time to do the cleaning myself (because my bro likes to wake up suuuuper late like a rock >.>) and I was RELIEVED to know that my computer yelled at me only for a clean up :'''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''D Holy garbage cans. I honestly would just break down and bawl for the rest of my life.... so much data collected over the years, so many achievements
BUT NOW IT'S OK BECAUSE WOLFY CLEANED UP HER PC ALL BY HERSELF AND FIXED THE PROBLEM! AAAAAANNNDDDDD I also took the opportunity to finally take pics and show it off to whoever likes to waste their time reading my journals that nobody reads anyway :' D
INCOMING G33K 0V3RL04D!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This is my little boy, childrens. Isn't he beautiful?! Brings tears to my eyes to know that he's turning 4 years with me. His name is Bob the Train. He was passed on to me by my bro
, he constructed him with my dad (they're both computer technicians). Since I'm not the one who built him, I don't know all the details. What I do know is that Bob is customly made of an MSI motherboard, containing an AMD Phenom II X2 555 Processor, 8 GB of RAM with an NVIDIA GeForce 8400 Graphics card, ALL slapped onto a piece of plexiglass with two pieces of bike parts screwed on the sides that allow Bob to be mounted on a wall. Those green tentacles you see are a mess of cables that connect from the power supply to the motherboard.
Speaking of power supply, I had to clean everything including that.
Guys, I'll tell you now, it's not safe to be messing with the power source. But there were some serious dust bunnies in there, no place should be left undusted. Especially if it's a transparent case, seeing them in there is just.. ugh...ew.... At least I got that over with.
Oh yea.... and this is my 'On' button..
SO FABULOUS, RIGHT?!?!?! Also...
Hiding behind all the green cables is my 1 TerraByte Hard drive. His name is ChorizoBeans. He was once pronounced dead months ago, 'til my dad took him to the freezer morgue to cool down and brought him back to life. And I've been using him again since then. I'm still kind of suspicious that he might die on me again since he has been formatted a couple of times and it's not the first time he gave me the 'clicks of doom'.
I had to move Bob to the living room so I can clean him out and then take him outside and blow off the left over dust. And this is what part of mah crib looks like:
Yes, that's the family TV. No, it's not for sale. You see behind that door where there's a tower in there? Yes, that PC is connected to the TV. We watch youtube and stream movies here. TH3 P0W3R 0F TH3 G33K 15 5TR0NG H3R3.
And finally, when I was all finished, I moved Bob back to my room, stuck him under my desk, connected everything and turn him on. Made me happy to see him glowing a nice bright blue again.
So freakin' glad I just had to clean him out and he's good as new again : D He looks so pretty shining under my desk ;u;. Sure he's still noisy, even if I screwed on the fan more tighter, of course that's why I named him Bob the Train
. That's all from me for now, hope the read was enjoyable and informative somehow. Kudos to those who read all the way through, you get a free cookie! YAY!
AND NOW BACK TO MY STUFF. I'LL GET TO PERSONAL AND FAN ARTING TOO.
WOLFY NINJA VANISH!!!!!
