My Last Semester and my PC

Sun Feb 19, 2017, 1:45 PM
Hello everybody, sorry I haven't posted any new journals in a while. I didn't feel I had much to say, but I have important things to tell everyone now.

I'm currently going through my hopefully last semester of college. I have a big senior show coming where I have to show my best work. Turn in is March 15th-18th, the actual show is on the 28th of March. I'm thankfully mostly ready, I just have 3-4 pieces I need to do before then. However I've had a recent problem.

I was getting parts to build a new PC because my old processor is dying and out of date, also I needed pretty much new everything. When I turned on my new PC it worked, however after the bios appeared and Windows 7 started loading it'll blue screen then instantly reset. My friend and I tried to find why, apparently my new motherboard is incompatible with Windows 7, so I have to get a copy of 10 on disc. It will not accept it from a USB. While doing all this it mentioned my HDD was not formatted right for the new system. I reformatted it...erased my HDD's data...and it still said it was nor formatted correctly. Don't worry, my art stuff is mostly saved on this laptop and in other places. I did lose some important things I cannot recover though. Hopefully a data recovery program can fix that.

I will be doing several things over the course of the week to try and get my PC working. I will be buying a copy of Windows 10 in disc form tomorrow to try and fix this. If it doesn't work I'll be calling some local specialists Monday.

The important thing for you all from this is I'm very sorry but I'll be taking longer with commissions and such until I get my new PC running. My laptop I'm using is fine and thankfully has a good majority of my data I lost. i can draw on it, but not as well as on my PC, nor as fast. If I need money for parts or repair I'll be opening a commission stream within a month, it'll be difficult especially as I have to juggle my senior show, but I have to.

I've been so stressed, but I don't like to whine. I hope you're all doing okay. Love you guys.

Gifts and Kiribans:
To :icondreamweaverofchaos: and everyone I promised late Chsitsmas gifts, I'm very sorry I haven't gotten to them. I might not be able to any time soon, but don't worry I did not forget. I have it all saved in notes on DA.

Please take the time you need for your semester. It sounds important and it is literally here (man time has gone by this 2017 year XD It feels like January was not that long ago...)

I hope you are doing ok in your (hopefully) last semester! 

You are definitely not a whiner. I'm glad you said this. Thank you for saying it and I'm sorry I'm so late =(

I'm planning one getting a new computer this year too, considering my computer has been acting funny too. I kind of want a second computer for back-up, considering I have online classes. Anyway, I'm sorry things had been rough for you lately and good luck with your last semester.

Thanks a lot, if you want computer advice I can give you some depending on what you want if you're building one.

Nah, it's likely I'll just walk into Best Buy and just buy a computer with the money I managed to save. To be specific, I plan to get a laptop, hopefully a 14 inch wide one.

Craaap...
Sorry this happened now, of all times ><;

Are you able to find a disc with Windows 10, if it won't accept a usb?

Only if they're at the school for 20$ or from a store for 100$...

Oh right.. I almost forgot they sell OS discs; they should have Win 10 at a student discount I think

I wish you the best of luck with your final semester, you worked so hard and I just know it's going to all work out and you'll have your degree in no time.

I'm sorry about your PC problems, it sucks when that kind of stuff happens but hopefully, a resolution will be made with the disc or the specialist. Just try to keep your head and take things one step at a time.

Best of luck! :hug:
