It sounds as though my hard drive on my laptop is dying. My husband said that's what it sounds like to him too. I have had my laptop for 5 1/2 years now, and I really have enjoyed using it. But I guess that I am going to have to stop blogging if I can't find a replacement soon.
Any PR people looking for a Blogger to review a Laptop, please let me know. I would take personal photographs and explore everything about it and share it with my followers, other bloggers, my friends, family, on Twitter, my two Facebook pages, Pintrest, and more!
