I’m So Happy!

A few weeks ago, hubs and I stopped at the Geek Squad counter at Best Buy and asked a computer nerd what I needed to do to get my laptop up and running. He proceeded to tell me that I would need to order a disk from Gateway to restore all of my programs but my files, photos, etc. would all be lost. I was bummed out but at this point I’m was way past tears.

Fast forward to yesterday. While I logged onto the internet using hubs computer to order a recovery disk I have my computer booting up. I glanced over at my computer and notice that it has Internet Explorer installed. I click on Start and realized that there are other programs (not many) installed too. Long story short, after fiddling around for a couple of hours last night and again this morning, I have fixed my computer. I had to download drivers for a couple of things and I have to install 1 or 2 programs but otherwise everything is back to normal. I realize now that when my system crashed and I saw that my files were all gone I was in such a state of shock that I didn’t really notice that not everything was wiped off my computer.

The best news? When I re-installed Picasa it FOUND all of photos I thought I’d lost. I literally cried. They were in an archive folder … along with all of my documents. All 2,754 of my precious photos are restored.

This is one of the best days ever! 🙂
