This years for sure did not get boring so far... now I am having major computer problems. I am not giving up hope yet and repairing it is for sure worth the money... but still.
So at the moment I am doing my backup, just in case there is bigger issues than just the fan damage which is also obvious... but for some time now my computer gives me blue screens and start problems with obvious meanings: I have a hardware problem which is either related to my graphic cards or (the worst case) my motherboard.
As I have tried everything to find out what is wrong, I am totlly not knowing any more what to do. And while I have some basic knowledge of hardware, I now need professional help which I will hopefully get next week, so my poor machine will get diagnozed and then the damage can be repaired.
So yeah.... it could be worse. The computer runs fine most of the time still but we all know, we should take signs like blue screens and all that for serious. And before people jump in now and tell me what to do - I have done everything which can be done at home alredy to solve the problems / find out about things. Something needs to be done now and will be done (as soon as I know how expensive it will be and stuff... I mean... it is not that I have lots of money and I might have to save up, do commissions maybe and whatnot, I have no idea yet). Plus - in a few minutes ALL of my private data (including my whole Studio content) is saved upon an extrenal drive and thus safe. So even if my computer explodes tomorrow, my data is safe as you can always replace hardware - but personal files you can not.
So plase keep your fingers crossed that it won´t be something serious or too expensive. If it is the board, I might as well bury myself.
