Computer!scare

Something is wrong with my dear laptop Leland. I rebooted him on the weekend and he wouldn't boot up again, only did so after I run the repair routine from the OS disc. After that everything was fine. Until today. As usual, I was reading various mails and messages before breakfast and even started an upload. Then I went to get something to eat and when I got back, Leland was switched off. I turned him back on, but once again, same thing, he wouldn't boot up until I run the repair routine. It's getting annoying, especially since the repair routine doesn't tell me what the problem is exactly. The only error message I get is that OS can't be loaded and that a recent software or hardware change might be to blame. That's not helpful at all. I haven't acquired an new hardware and the only thing I installed the last few days is already uninstalled again. Might have to clean the laptop out and reinstall everything if this doesn't fix itself. Not looking forward to this at all.

Oh yeah, I'm working today after all. Work called and asked me to come in after the school trip for my tutoring group. The kids are going to be so not motivated. But well, two hours work is two hours pay.
