Ok here is my sob story.
I had my flagship computer running flawlessly for 6 months. Everything but my fancy Asus motherboard. Well the only weird thing it would do was give me false alarms that my processor was overheating at temperatures that would destroy it in seconds, as well as giving me false readings that one of the fans died.
I could live with that.
Then I started getting bad burns. Bought two new Benq burners (which brought me here ) and while trying to figure out why these great new burners were having problems…
POOF!!! my motherboard dies. This is not something i am used too, I have never had any kind of hardware failures not in almost a decade!
So I sit here on my backup, trying to rack up the energy to call ASUS. In the meantime I discover this new ANNOYING problem:
First to those that think that Windows in insecure, Rubbish
I tried hooking up my 36 gig WD Raptor SATA drive to my backup, i was happy to see everything there. Then I went to retreive probably the only important thing hosted on that drive, and excel document listing over 400 dvds i own, and another spreadsheet with some financial information, it is a record worth money, well not worth, I will lose money without it.
So anyways I go an open the ‘Documents and Settings’ dirrectory to get my file out.
As soon as I click on my user name I get a DREADFULL horrible message:
Now I have asked everyone and their mother how to bypass this, everybody acted like it was something simple but none of their “solutions” worked, I tried booting off the drive and got nowhere.
So I ask you, my fellow genius computer nerds, Please help me get my precious file back.
I am offering the same meager reward I have offered my real life friends, I will ship you a 25 pack of Taiyo Yuden, or Vertabatim Movie Reel discs.
Thank you for your help and consideration
