Whilst installing an upgrade for an operating system, I inadvertently closed my laptop, putting it to sleep. I honestly forgot it was going on until I was half-way home. When I tried to fire it up again the computer was pretty unhappy.
So, I tried to rescue the OS with the install CD. After about 90 minutes, I got this message in the picture:
That was not good.
So, I tried a few more things for a while and finally did a clean install and restored the data from a week-old backup. Not horrible, but not great either.
Also, the fan makes a horrible noise.
