Recovery instead of suicide.
The last 3 days were a nightmare. My ASUS Laptop wouldn't boot up, all I got was a dark screen and an activity circle. I tried for three days using every thing I knew to do.
I lay in bed at 2 AM and suddenly I thought, maybe if I try to Boot from the Norton 360 disc? So I got up, dug through my discs and inserted the Norton. It gave me some options which I followed and it finally (after perhaps 10 minutes) gave me a screen with all my things.
Being a writer and having an almost completed SciFi story on the Hard Drive and stupidly NOT BACKED UP! (whacks myself in the head) I was totally panicked. Thankfully, this product "Norton 360" which I have used for more than ten years, saved my bacon.
If you ever have anything like this happen to you, then try using the Norton Disc as a Boot, it works!!!
Thank you Norton (Symantec) for a wonderful product.
A VERY satisfied user.
