Forced Hiatus...

Journal Entry: Tue Dec 13, 2016, 5:24 PM
*Update*
If you're interested at all in keeping up with any art I do, feel free to follow me on Twitter. Any art I make will be posted there, as it'll be traditional art.

  Welp. My laptop got fucked when I formatted it last night. Something must have happened while I was asleep, because when I woke up shortly at 6am, it was saying that it wasn't able to delete all my personal files and to try resetting my laptop again. I clicked okay.

Once it soft restarted, it said 'press any key to skip disk scanning'. I thought I'd let it scan the disk, because I'm not sure why exactly it had complications formatting. So once it started scanning my C: drive, I went back to bed for a couple of hours...

  Woke up to it saying the scan was at 100%, but it just stayed like that... 8rhs later I decided to just shut down my laptop, and see what happens. My cousin said it looked to her like it was bricked, so I figured, if it was, restarting it wouldn't make a difference, and it's not like it would go any farther just leaving it there either... That and I read other people who had the 100% issue, that they shut down and booted up in safemode, and let it finish the scan in safemode...

  I start up my laptop first, to see if it'll just get me to log in, or making a new user (depending on how far the format got).. It doesn't seem to be getting to the point of booting windows. It'll show the samsung logo when I boot up, with the loading wheel, then the logo will disappear, leaving me with a black screen and loading wheel. I figured, okay, I'll just let it sit and wait...
I waited, and waited, and nothing more happened. After several different attempts to boot into safemode after that, I couldn't. I couldn't get into safemode at all...

  I did manage to boot into system recovery, but, unfortunately, I couldn't go back to any recovery point. I tried to go to the one it had (basically to the state it was when I got it out of the box) but when I tried, it would say "recovery failed"... Unfortunately I don't have a repair/recovery disk, as I never got one when I bought this laptop, as everything was already installed...

  There is an option to get a factory image, but it's just over 14GB, and I don't have a spare thumbdrive or portable hard drive that I can use, because I don't want to risk the ones that I have getting formatted in the process. I don't exactly know how to use the factory image, but I plan to go to Best Buy after work tomorrow and pick up a 16-32GB thumbdrive. Hopefully with that, I can fix my laptop...

  But if that doesn't work, then I'll be forced to take it to the computer repair shop a couple blocks down the street... And that'll cost upwards of $80, providing that the prices on their website are up to date... The thing with that though, is that, my boyfriend is leaving on friday, and I don't want to take it to the repair shop without him here, because I'm too easy to manipulate/pressure, and I don't feel comfortable without him there to back me up/stop me from getting ripped off.


  I am currently typing this on my boyfriend's spare/old laptop, and it doesn't have my tablet drivers nor does it have Sai, so, until I get my laptop fixed, I will not be able to post any art. I will, however, be able to check messages and such though. If I can't get my laptop fixed before my boyfriend leaves, it won't get fixed until he get's back, and I'll thus be on hiatus at least until after the 9th of January, which is when he gets back...
