My computer seems to have decided that it won't start up Windows at all, which is worrying.

Equally worrying, when I try to do System Restore which was my first idea for fixing it it claims there aren't any stored recovery points to restore to.

Next thing to try is to restore to factory settings which will hopefully fix it. First off, I decided to use the backup tool to back everything up to my external hard drive so I probably won't be able to try the restore for a few hours.

In the meantime, I've blown the dust off my 6-year old previous computer and am currently using that. It's a bit slow, but at least it works. Oddly, when I went to Livejournal it seemed to decide to display my friends page from April 2009 which was a bit disconcerting, at first the difference wasn't too obvious, but I quickly noticed a post from Mo's old account which hasn't been used for ages. I guess April 2009 might have been the last time I came here on this computer, but I don't know why I had to force it to reload.

Update : having just had an error message when I tried to post this, I think the old friends page weirdness is probably because the time and date weren't set correctly on this machine (it thought it was January 1st 2001).
