    Depending on how much data you need to store you could use a phone, a flash drive, a flash card or a hard drive. An external hard drive is probably best because it would let you back up everything. Of course the hard drive in the laptop isn't necessarily the problem, in which case you wouldn't lose any data even if the laptop dies. FWIW I've got some drives that are 5 to 10 years old and showing no signs of trouble.

    There are lots of reasons a computer will shut down. A bit of googling may let you figure out what your issue is and it might be a simple fix.

      thanks floyd. i'm assuming its a heat issue but yeah could be another thing.

      it's around 6 years old now.

      will check on the net for clues.

        must have been a virus. i killed everything. thought the pc was done.

        did a new windows set up and my versabet is gone:(

        was that close to the flash drive but put it off.

        anyway....new question.

        got an external hard drive i used to pull files from my dead pc years back.

        it has the versabet files on there....is there some way i can open them?

          I have bought and still use desktop computers that are older than that and they work fine just as they did when they were brand new this here computer that I am using right now is one of them, it has WinXP on it, but it works as if it was new.

          WinXP SP3 is not too bad, it works well enough.

            A lot of people lose everything cause they don't backup on CDs, DVDs, flash drives, on other hard drives and or on other partitions.

            Use the "Search for something" here on L.P. go to "Resources" and look for:  Versabet

            Good luck!

              unfortunately it's true.

              i only used it for wc so not a big loss.

              it won't give you the winners but a great statistical tool.

              i won before i had it and i will win again without it.

              it's paper time i guess...

              how bout lot soft.
