Well, my laptop seems to be dead. It starting acting peculiar about 2 weeks ago, when it locked up suddenly. The screen didn't just freeze, it was a series of multi-colored lines going across the screen. It happened while I was playing Sims, so I thought it might be the game. When it happened the second time (also while playing), I uninstilled Sims. That didn't help, as the problem became worse. It soon began locking up whenever I tried to do anything. I scanned it for viruses and other problems, but my comptuer kept saying it was fine. I gave up and took it to the computer lab on campus last Friday.
I haven't gotten their final word (probably will today) but they seem to think it might be a hardware problem rather than a virus. I hope that it can be fixed or at least I can get some of my stuff off of it. I make videos, and I have about 5 projects on the computer that I've been working on for the last month. I would hate to lose them.
