I am not sure what has happened! I went on holiday and left with nothing wrong. I came back, started work and overnight the external hard drive packs up! Of course I had every intention of backing it up when I buy a new drive this year (seeing as the previous one wasn't so old at all).
Then the PC packs up when I come home from buying the hard drive. I am getting a blue screen every time I switch it on but being Windows 7, I cannot catch the error message before it reboots.
When it reboots, it asks me if I want to revert to last best known state. I do that but it still doesn't want to work.
I am at a complete loss. I have antivirus and my firewall is switched on.
The only thing I did with the hard drive when I got back was move it (when it was off) so that I could clean my desk.
The PC I bought in September 2012 so it is not that old and the external drive in about May 2011 which is also not that old considering I have another machine that I have had for years and years now and it is STILL running!
Any thoughts/solutions would be appreciated.
