Got up yesterday and turned on my computer onto to find it didn't really start: monitor didn't go on, no processing sounds, corded mouse's laser (my remote one was recharging) didn't turn on- thought my comp was dead either from fried HD (happened to the first HD I had with this comp) or fried video card.
Tried starting it afew more times with no luck. Then I thought it might have been a conflict with the windows update I left it apply before it shutdown when I went to bed the day before.
Notified my mom about it, she got pissed because I had Dled a bunch of shows she wanted to watch. That turned into a talk about costs of replacing the HD or vid card or just getting a new comp and then into me explaining the what the function of said devices did in the computer.
She left, I began checking the inside out to see if there was any damage, found none and tried turning the computer on again- it worked.
Puzzles I began checking things out to see if anyting was kissed up, randomly started movies and shows all worked. The only thing odd was that the comp had 1.69 GB free, all my moms shows had reduce it to 78mb the day before.
I then grabbed a meal and was about to sit down to try other programs out when I began to have discomfort in my chest. That led to a trip to emerg, nothing wrong, the doctor didn't know wtf caused what I had and chalked it up to really weird acid reflux (like really bad tightness and non-burning pain in my chest with difficulty breathing would be caused by that).
By the time I got home it was morning, my mom wanted to watch a show before she went to bed so I started the comp up again. It worked, but checking HD space, I found it now had 2.6GBs free.
Anyway I'm tired and am about to goto bed. Anyone got any ideas on what caused this? I'm assuming the extra space thing was an auto function where the comp started compressing unused files to free things up.
Anyway see ya tomorrow.
