I'm in trouble, two things have gone wrong today, First missed the usual train (trouble getting out of bed). Second this PC choked on boot and gave a suitably cryptic message ('No Bootable Media'). The PC's are not controlled via our IT Dept and are from Daisy. Corporate politics mean we can't connect our network to the corporate network and have to change over to use the corporate network, which is managed by Daisy. I managed to get this PC back up by running the BIOS check disk, it worked and I now I don't know what went wrong...it's alive but for how long
Talk to boss - if it's a HDD problem - and that's likely if check disk fixed it - they don't get better! Generally a "noticeable" failure of an HDD is a good sign that it's dying - backup your data ASAP, and look to replace the PC / HDD (with an SSD if you can!).
Bad command or file name. Bad, bad command! Sit! Stay! Staaaay...

Panic ye not I have only just started with this PC, So pretty much everything is already on OneDrive and my network partition, once Windows came to life I ran though every thing and double checked it was backed up. There has been a rash of the Daisy machines failing hard drive wise (the guy opposite me took 5 machines before one worked properly)...
I'm an engineer, when something doesn't work it gets taken apart and fixed, if it can't be fixed it is an example to my other possessions... Plus I have backed everything up, it strikes me as odd we can no longer use the onsite IT dept to solve these problems we have to phone a flower...

Thank god. Normal users often do get supersticious and start doing weird things. I knew someone who went into the device manager and randomly changed the interrupts assigned to the device that he held responsible for his problems.

That sort of stuff usually only makes sense to some managers. Support gets cheaper somehow and the time you lose while waiting for them to show up is someone else's problem.
I have lived with several Zen masters - all of them were cats.
His last invention was an evil Lasagna. It didn't kill anyone, and it actually tasted pretty good.
