My desktop is ded.

Poor thing.  he's only three years old, and yet he's been in the shop more than any car that I've ever had, like EVER. 

It has a blue screen that says:

A problem has been detected...  (No crap.  Really?  A problem?  You're kidding.)

INMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME  (WTC is that?  It's started fine every other time I've ever tried to use it.)

It then goes on to say in that blithe, charming techn-o speak that I should restart in safe mode, and that I need to check with my hardware or software manufacturers for any updates I might need.  (Yes. I'll get right on that.)

Next paragraph of the blue screen on doom says that I should disable any newly installed hardware.  And that I should disable BIOS memory options such as caching or shadowing. (What the-- Huh?   I never cache.  And I very rarely shadow.)

But the charming thing wont even let me restart in safe mode.  So, the computer guy has been called, and he's going to make a house call.  He said that it SOUNDED like my hard drive has crashed.  (Thank you, Sunshine.)  If indeed the desktop is salvageable, I'm going to have the CD drive replaced as well, since I broke that the first of January.

But what does this mean?  The podcast I've been working on is on that computer, as is every other audio file I've ever recorded.  Bah, humbug.  Everything else in life is just dandy, though  :)  Hope you all have a lovely week.
