2016 Update – Laptop Fail…


2016 Laptop Fail…


Hello everyone,

sorry I haven’t been posting as usual! There is a reason why and I will tell you all about it!

I just want to give you an update of what’s going on during my early 2016.  In my last “Post of the 2015”  I wrote that I got sick with the Flu, that wasn’t a nice ending of the year, but I got over the Flu very well taking care of me with rest, warm, lots of tea and a great natural recipe made out of “Turmeric and Raw Honey” this magic natural antibiotic did wander for me. I should make a post about it sometimes! 🙂 I also like to thank all of you that left me beautiful and lovely comments to get well soon! Thank you!

Anyway the reason why I am not posting as usual and during the past days I did some reblogs, is because my nearly two years old HP Pavilion Laptop decided to go to sleep and never woke up!!!
Can you imagine how frustrating this can be?  All my digital work and data are on it!!!! 😦

I had to use my Kindle Fire to check my Blog, emails etc… and with a Kindle isn’t easy to type long posts, but I am grateful that I have been able at least to read and reply  to your nice comments, my apologies if I missed someone.

I am pretty good with computers and I did try any advice and suggestions I found online to wake up my laptop. Actually it did woke up 3 times, but after last time seems there is no way for everything I did try. This type of fail seems to happen very often with laptops of all kinds of brands in fact this is the second laptop I own that fail, my first one was from another brand and it lasted five years and same thing happened.

I have to say that I am disappointed this time because I don’t think that a nice laptop from a great brand like HP has to have such a short life less than 2 years! I still hope that there is a way to fix it.

Right now I had no options than get a new computer, which is great of course, this time is not longer a laptop but a great desktop! It wasn’t planned at all for me to buy a new one but I need it for my work and my livelihood. I am sure something great will come out of all this wish me well! 😉

For the end of the next week I will have my new set up and I can go back to my work and new posts!
Also for who wander about my weekly “Fridays Meet and Greet Event” and the “Feature Event on Saturdays” will go back on soon stay tuned because I will choose new Blogs to Feature, stay connected!!! ❤

One last thing Thank You so much to all the recent “Follow” that I received I am full of appreciation!
I did Follow back everyone I could and I will check back your Blogs! Stay connected.

Have a wonderful 2016 together we can keep walking doing great things…
Wish you a wonderful day or night!

  1. Hola,

    I’m glad you’re feeling better but sorry to hear about your laptop. If the laptop died for reasons other than the hard drive you can get a case for about thirty bucks and use the drive as a external on a USB port…you will have access to all of your files and can even boot up on it by changing the boot sequence in the bios…

  2. OH NO! Glad to hear you’re getting a new one, though. My hard drive on my laptop is failing. We have cloned it to a new one and I am *still* waiting for hubby to do something with it.

    Tech can be so fickle! I have to admit, I have never been a fan of HP computers. I have an Asus that is 6 years old and still runs like a champ.

  4. My first laptop was an HP too and it also lasted not even 2 years. 1 year and 10 months… It was exactly as yours died! Never woke up anymore. I already missed you, Carolina. It is annoying when those devices all of a sudden disappear. We need them!!!!

  5. I’m glad you’re able to continue on, Carolina. I hope that you’ll be able to get your laptop up and going, at least to have as a backup. Glad you’re over the flu too! Take care.

  7. I am glad your feeling better, tumeric is a little super hero! Something similar happened to my last laptop and it made me heartsick. I have so many files on that thing. I haven’t gotten rid of it just in case I can find someone to retrieve the files. Good luck with yours!

  8. So sorry to hear about your laptop. We have lots of laptops that come and go at our house. Fortunately, my hubby set up a server where we save files and backups and we also backup files to cloud . It’s a bit of a pain, but a lot of it is set up automatically. Wish you the best in recovering your data.
