YES! My computer is back!

Friday, May 26, 2006

Finally, after about a week of having no computer of my own, I finally got it working again by just removing the bad hard drive, but that is not all. A fellow linux user that was helping me to solve this problem had told me to see what brand hard drive I had in my computer. I looked and the brand turned out to be Magnetic Data Technologies (MDT). We checked out the website, and it turns out they only sell refurbished hard drives. Well, that came as a shock to me. I then wrote to the vendor from which I purchased my computer and asked them what was up. They responded and told me that they would replace the bad hard drive for free. Nothing else. I am not really mad that they sold me a refurbished hard drive because they computer has been great and I got it at a great price, but I would have liked it if they had told me that I was getting a refurbished hard drive. Anyway, that aside, I am now waiting for that free hard drive, and I am thinking about just buying a new hard drive, just to be safe. At any rate, I now have SuSE 10 reinstalled and working, so I am once again happy. Sadly though, the bad hard drive is beyond use, and I suppose I will just have to to dispose of it. Well then... I wonder what my next big problem will be...
