I do sympathise....I had a Toshiba laptop too, that I had for about 5 years. That turns out on it's own to be a minor miracle, and it was used A LOT!
let me tell ya...
Anyway, mine crashed late last year too, with lots of warning, I will admit, like the power switching itself on and off, and latterly the powerpack
beeping. Took it to friends of mine who run a tech shop and was told it might have exploded...dunno if this is a mean old tech shop myth or not, but
it scared me....ha ha!!
So....I bought an external hard drive with huge memory that's so small physically, I have to be careful not to lose it, and it wasn't expensive. The
techies put all my old data from the hard drive on it for me, and now I know that I can't rely on my favourites list surviving another crash...they
don't, and mine was *immense*....now I have a very low tech indexed notebook for the stuff I really want to keep.
I hope you and your Sony have a long and happy relationship!
Edit to correct blip...fank ooo!
