...out of it's misery or can it be fixed?
This afternoon the good old XP workhorse got stuck on the "saving settings" screen as it shut down.
I got back to it after a while and nothing I could do got it beyond that.
So I pushed the button and it quickly shut down.
Now trying ot get it up and running gets me some fan noise and a few superfast messages on the screen before it goes dead again - just a few seconds of life..
Lots of needed stuff on it - I'd like to get it running again if it can be done. It's been around for a long time and I guess I have the same kind of affection for it that I had for my old portable typewriter.
All help - including advice - will be greatly appreciated.
