Earlier today I went to the Acer Service Center to have my dead laptop repaired. After waiting and sweating for a while, my turn finally came and I watched as the Acer dude checked my laptop.
The solution to the problem was the memory. He just switched it from one slot to another slot and it’s working again. I was surprised the solution was that easy! I already tried to dissect my laptop yesterday but I did not do anything because I fear I might do further damage. I thanked him and went on my way (he did not charge anything, lucky me). I am very thankful that the laptop got fixed but I would like to share with you something I’ve learned in this experience.
Always make a back up of your files and keep your things secure all the time.
I have been talking about back up your blog last month but I have not personally applied it myself. I forgot to practice what I preached and I almost suffered the consequences of it. So now, I’m telling all of you to start making back ups of your files in case something bad happens.
Here are the stuffs you can back up:
- Your blog!!! (#1 priority) – Read more about the different ways you can back up your blog.
- Important documents;
- Pictures! ;
- IM chatlogs such as those in Yahoo Messenger;
- Your media files such as videos and audio;
- Your installers and computer drivers;
- and everything you want to save!
So before any accidents may happen to you, do your back ups now and do it often. Thanks Acer Service Center! Yeah!
