Decisions, Decisions.  
Friends, Romans, Fl*sters, I come here today to ask for your help.

First of all I have news, whether it's good or not I'll leave up to you. The next chapter of the Fic O Doom has just gone off to be beta'd, and I have told my long suffering beta to hack and slash at it with abandon.

Now onto my real reason for being here, I'm having a few technical difficulties with ye olde lap top.  Now when I try to switch it on the on/ off button is playing up, sometimes it turns the machine on right away. Then others it's almost as if I've got a loose connection and it won't switch on.  Now I can carry on until it goes poof and lap top never tuns on again *sob*.

Or do as Steve suggests, bite the bullet and take poorly lap top off to curry's and get them to look at it before said disaster happens. Also Steve wants lap top to be hale and hearty for the holiday, so i don't end up murdering someone if we get stuck in the caravan if it rains, clever man my long suffering other half.

If I do as he suggests, I will have take in tomorrow, and if the last time is anything to go by it will take at least two weeks...... So no squeeing, and my writing will slow to an even bigger crawl, but I have to face facts something may be about to give.

So dear friends, what do you think? sort it now or wait until I'm weeping over the unresponsive little body of a much loved little pal

Help me out please?. I'll be off line for a while but I promise to be back soon.

I'd suggest getting it taken care of sooner rather than later just in case it turns out to have other issues as well, you don't want it dying and taking everything with it. I've had PC issues that seemed minor but turned out to be a sudden death and unrecoverable loss of all data and it wasn't fun at all...

I think you're right, it's time to get this dealt with before something goes poof and everything vanishes.

Looks like my lap top is off on it's travels.

Yikes! My first advice would be to back everything up that you hold dear immediately! Something similar happened to mine where I had to cross my fingers that it would turn on every time until finally... it didn't. Probably best to sort it sooner than later. Good luck!

Mehtinks it's time to get this looked at before it's too late. Ahh well off it goes to be looked at. Thank you.

I've had the exact same predicament and I'd say get it fixed, I know it feels like someone hacked off your arm with it when you hand it over but sometimes what seems like a little problem isn't because it depends on the hardware the problem originated from and if it isn't sorted it could get worse and cause other problems.

*pets you*

Thank you, it's was awful when the screen went kaput! But better to get it looked at now before something major goes ping.

Everything backed up and ready to go.

Listen to your man, that's all I can say because I have no bloody clue when it comes to technical problems!!

My former desk top computer died on me all of sudden several years ago. I had to pay some tech guy to take out data and it was expensive. Since then I try to move anything important(even I may delete later)to USB. I know USB isn't safe heaven but computer isn't really reliable said above-mentioned tech guy.

I'm very familiar with the whole USB stick routine, it's where I keep all my fics and ideas. So yes I know it's not the safest but until I come up with something better it will do.

Thanks for the help.
