So I got my laptop back and I guess it was DOA, as laptop “surgery” didn’t go well. The thing is, my laptop being frozen in eternal startup doesn’t include a blue screen as I’ve got a totally black screen with just those rotating circle of white dots. So the pressing ctrl/alt/delete doesn’t work and I can’t seem to find a matching circumstance for which my laptop is frozen in. Sure I could purchase a new laptop but I still wouldn’t be able to continue this blog as all of my programs, files and blog templates with many things irreplaceable are on my current laptop. Not to mention completed posts, translations including what was intended to be the final post bookend here “CoCo Forever” which are all now inaccessible. Everything blog related for about the last 9-10 years is on this laptop so even with a new laptop it wouldn’t be of any help blog wise. It’s beyond a bummer as I’ve gotten Mayuyu’s new shashinshuu, Amuro Namie’s new single, ARASHI’s new album, Sayanee’s first album, Sasshi in Weekly Playboy and more classic J-Pop music and so much more to post about and now “thanks to Windows 10 and its latest update freezing my laptop in startup, I can do nothing. If this is the end, I plan to edit the date on my “Moritaka Chisato” post as it would then become the last post of musical note that I hold dear to my heart here. And if you haven’t paid it any attention I would encourage you to do so as there’s truly a wealth of amazing music and artistry therein all to make your life infinitely happier~♡. And personally if this is truly the end here , Moritaka Chisato’s post would be a most soul satisfying way to end here as my blogging roots began and fittingly should end with my love of music …. well given my current predicament as CoCo was to be this blog’s final chapter. I feel as if we should listen to The Beatles’ “The End” which says: “And in the end, the love you take is equal to the love you make…” perfectly said Paul ^^*. One thing I do now notice is that I’m now able to turn the laptop’s power on and off by holding down the shift key while pressing and holding the power button and that the “press escape” prompt is now back for that second or two before I get those eternally spinning startup white dots. I think it will take me to some other startup menu? But if it’s a menu of the “midevel” type like another blank screen now with just a cursor like we are then back in (gulp!) DOS… or something equivalent, I’d be more lost than a millennial with a VHS tape!! So it frightens me to hit escape there albeit how much more broken can my laptop really become as all I have are spinning dots against a black screen? Anyway this is has been depressing =( and I think Microsoft owes me an explanation and a new laptop for killing mine with Windows 10. So wish I had ignored their free ‘upgrade’ to Windows 10😄, what a disaster it is =/! I so want my Windows 7 back!!
Anyway deeply saddened by this turn of events and I shall disconnect for the day. If anyone reading this has any remedies/ fixes in mind please do not hesitate to share them here. For without my laptop this will be my forced goodbye.
