What do you do if you accidentally knocked your laptop off a chair and it fails into the ground with a thud?
I was calmly looking at it. Seconds later, I exclaimed, “OHMAYGAWD!!!” and checked what happened to it.
But first, let me tell you the events prior to it…
The laptop is resting nicely on a monoblock chair when I stood up and looked around my room. I realized that my cousin will be going back today so I should not put my stuffs on his bed anymore. The only thing I put there was a laptop box (new one & not mine) and a laptop back with a new laptop inside (not mine). So I decided to transfer it near my bed.
I started to carry it with me and I was near the chair where my laptop is resting. I tried to squeeze the box I was carrying between the chair and the computer table when the box slapped the chair, thus the laptop was shaken from its slumber and it fell butt first into the floor. THUD!
I stood frozen and carefully placed the laptop bag and the laptop box on my bed and went to check up on the poor laptop. The laptop had its mouth wide open (cd/dvd tray open in an awkward way) and it’s still powered on however, there was nothing on the screen anymore.
So what’s the condition of the laptop?
Well, I can still turn it on and the lights will go on. That’s all. No displays, no fan revolution, no hard disk sounds, no bios screen, no nothing just lights.
To make things worse, here are the stuffs that the laptop had exclusive access only (files I don’t have anywhere else, in other words, no back up):
- My thesis documents and PDF sources
- My resume
- My school documents
- My mp3s (I just downloaded a couple of songs today gadamet)
- My pictures… the memories…
Not only that, the warranty has expired months ago so if ever I want to get this repaired, I need to shell out cash.
Even if the laptop would die, I just want my hard disk back… *sobs* …*sobs more* … *sobs… sniff… *
