got...blue...screen of death. lost...everything...
on the phone for HOURS and HOURS.... no explanation. Display driver failed, lead to multiple fatal errors.
On phone with Dell:
me - "Well, how does that happen? I mean, was it a virus? Was it something that I did?"
crazy dell tech dude - "No sir - this was an internal error. These things just happen. We are so sorry. You did not cause this"
me - "Sorry? SORRY? What do I do to prevent this in the future? I mean, there has to be something that we can alter to - "
CDTD - "I'm sorry sir - there is no guarantee this will not happen again. <insert tech and sales babble here> I will now charge you for the service. Thank you for choosing dell."
I am at the end of my rope. I have been dealing with this error for 4.5 hours, trying to arrive at a resolution. I'm not a super computer guy - even with the CIC instructions, it took hours for me to get each WC game to run smoothly in DosBox...oh man, oh man, oh man...have to BREATHE
Sorry for the long post - this has been one of the most frustrating days of my computing life. I can't even formulate a complete sentence. I'm going to bed, with all of my game files....kaput.
