Id post something funny here, but i dont have a computer yet. Ill have a cheap replacement dad got me in a couple of days, a 250 dollar refurbished computer.

Since you guys might have an answer, my old computer basically died because of tons of regestry errors and caused a bsod at start up, is it ok to hook that computers HD to my new one via usb to get files off the old hard drive? I'd rather not lose my progress on my essays games and other things.

If you have the necessary equipment, it's perfectly fine to hook up your old hard drive.

In my opinion registry errors are no reason to purchase a whole new computer, BSOD or not. If that's all that was wrong with it, you could have instead purchased a new identical operating system and used the boot disc to perform repairs.

Even in the worst case scenario(the disk itself is damaged/irreversibly corrupted) you'd only have to buy a new hard disk as well, swap it out and install a fresh OS on it. That would roughly halve your total expenses.

Well this computer was crapping out anyway (i blame static build up from the dry weather), just means i gotta save up for my gaming pc earlier than expected. Also id do that (buying a new os disc) but i pay rent for my house and receive very little help from my parents so thats not really an option, and was going to get ubuntu on a flash drive, but no computer i can use to download it.

I don't mean to sound condescending* but you need to be prepared for this kind of thing when you're subsisting on budget computers. I have both a Windows 7 disc and a ubuntu flash drive lying around. I suggest you get one or the other posthaste.

If you're concerned about losing your data consider purchasing an external hard drive. The lower capacity ones are extremely cheap these days and most types of documents take up utterly tiny amounts of space, the rest of which can be used for game backups to reduce redownloading time. While your computer's out you can bring the drive to your local library or another public PC cafe-sort of place. But seeing as how you had to post on your phone, would it be correct to assume you don't have one of those in your neighborhood?

You are correct, no library here (that im aware of) nor a cyber cafe, i live in a town with less than 30k people. There is a computer store though, but they didn't have any copies of windows 7 (screw 8 & 10). Also funny thing, anything important I download (mostly VN and games) i store on dvd discs, I have almost filled a cd holder with stuff, mainly because i left my portable hd on California.

Wow, I only put things on DVDs to troll people nowadays. It might be worth a trip back to the old home to get that HD. But since you're using DVDs you should definitely just rip a Windows 7 iso online and burn it, it worked for me when my drive was kill.

30k population and no library? You should check google maps or something to make sure. Sounds like quite an uncivilized place. Are there actually perks to living in the middle of nowhere or did you move just for the job?

Perks are a three bed room house with a big back yard for about 900 a month, clean air, people are actually friendly and automatically assume your not stealing something, easy access to casinos, and close to vegas, but yeah mainly for a job and cheap rent.

That's pretty good I suppose, but it's still rather unfathomable that there's no library. Who are the other bedrooms for?
