When it rains it poors. My laptop with all my data broke down last night. No backup of course of my data. The only thing that is safe so far is my thesis because I have a copy on my website somewhere. It just didn't want to start up anymore. There is an attempt to start up, but the screen stays off and the lights blink once. That looks quite bad I would imagine. Of course I can't find the receipt anymore. There is probably (you guessed it) a receipt on the hardrive of my laptop. I send an email to acer support in finland (didn't buy it in finland either) and we shall see what they say. I wonder if it will be cheaper if I send it for repairs to one of those smaller companies? On the other hand, Acer should know their own laptops best.
