Ok I'm on my oldest son's computer so I might be offline most of the time for a while.
Last night I was flying along in IL2, when I felt the need, so off I went, upon my return I saw a blue screen of death saying that windows had shut down due to a critical error, and that I needed to restart if this was the first time I got this message. Well i restarted the computer, now the screen is black saying " insert boot disk and press any key to continue" all this after being on for 4 hours, hard drive should be warm right? WRONG!, mine was cold as ice with no sound coming out of it at all, I just lost everything to a defective hard drive
Needless to say now I need a 160 gig Hdd real bad.
Found one, just need the money to get it.
