What a shock I received just now when my 4-month old ACER notebook crashed! I heard a 'tuk, tuk, tuk, ...' sound when booting up and suddenly the PC just froze. I tried re-booting it again and then it displayed an option for me to choose my boot sequence. I chose HDD but the PC would not boot up.
I guessed that I pushed it too much yesterday night (correct me if I am wrong). I was attempting to duplicate a DVD (using Nero) and the PC was copying the DVD image. During this process, I used my Excel and surfed the Internet (using Firefox). I saved my Excel file during the DVD copying process and it took a vvveeeerrrryyyyy llllloooonnnggggg time to do so. I knew that it was due to the DVD copying activity at that time. After the copying, I continued with the DVD burning process and everything was OK.
It was until after the completion of the DVD burn process and I then played the just burned DVD. I couldn't play the DVD - there was a burn error, I guessed. I then shutdown the PC planning to do the whole thing again tonight. But when I booted up the notebook just now, I heard the sound of death...
Anyone has comments on this unfortunate sequence of events?
