Broken Laptop...oh noooos!

The hard drive is dying on my laptop so I am making a backup of everything right now (the time remaining on the file transfers is rising instead of falling).

I contacted Dell earlier today and they will be sending out a new hard drive, new keyboard, and new rubber sticky pad things for me to install. A technician will also be sent out in a few days to replace the back of the lcd cover to restore it to its original condition of not being loose.

For now, I don't have a computer that is capable of running RCT3, so there won't be any new screenshots or updates until my laptop is fixed unless someone else wants to pitch in some screenshots for the downloads section. Update coming soon.

UPDATE: This problem has still not been resolved. Please see my blog post about the incident for more details.

The hard drive is dying (that's what the error message and the Dell rep said). I didn't do anything to it--it is just worn out I guess. I have complete care so all this stuff will be done for free.

It's been running almost constantly for almost a year. It's not completely dead yet...it's dying. In other words, it's still somewhat functional but takes ten times longer to boot up or do anything such as browsing or transferring files. This makes the load time for RCT3 unbearable (I'm not waiting an hour to load a park ).

Why don't you get a pair of defibulaters and put then on your lapto to give it a jult of eltricticy?

Because that would make it worse.
