Some problems never get old and remind you of good old days. One of them is famous (or should I say notorious) Blue Screen Of Death.

Here is the first one over XPS 15. Not amused. In fact I was expecting it after it was running for 30 hours doing some pretty heavy stuff. 💻👨‍💻


The start of a new journey with a new laptop.

And guess what I got back. One of the best laptops I ever had and was dearly missed after losing it to Windows Updates last month. Happy to have a new XPS 15 in my hands and back to enjoying the touch screen. Excited to work on one of the most powerful XPS so far.💻👨‍💻


The end of two generations of laptops – Dell Latitude and Dell XPS 15.

Had a great time using these powerful machines meant for different periods of time. In fact XPS 15 had to leave before time, thanks to the buggy Windows Updates crashing it down.

Now it is the time for Dell Precision! 💻👨‍💻

#WindowsUpdate #BootLoop

Latest Windows update caused Dell XPS 15 to crash and go into boot loop – a common problem faced by vendors selling laptops with pre-installed Windows including Lenovo and HP.

This is the latest crisis faced by couple others at the office and resulted nothing less than replacing the laptop due to the unresolvable problem. Thankfully it was possible for me to retrieve the data with the help of tech support and transfer it to the new one. It is whole different process to recover the data from SSD.

The quote to remember from the technician –

I hope there are not many crazy programmers at Microsoft who will ship more such updates in the future causing more machines to break just because those machines weren’t shipped with single partition.

And an advice –

Always sync your data over an external drive or cloud storage.

It was sad to see such a powerful laptop studded with touch screen leave. 💻📁♻️
