2 weeks ago my normally ultra-reliable machine failed quite badly, and I am in dire straights now.
My main drive failed and is not recoverable - replacement was £175
The DVD drive had failed earlier but I had not realised - replacement was £50
The graphics card failed a couple of days ago - replacement was £200
I am trying to recover what I can bit by bit from my backup, but it is a slow process indeed, and I still cannot earn any money at the moment...
