Tale of Woe
For various reasons, I'd not been in the studio for a couple of months but decided yesterday to carry on working on a few things.
So after switching everything on I was greeted by an error screen generated by the BIOS indicating that all was not well. No attempt at getting it to boot properly worked and in desperation, I replaced the keyboard batteries. It worked!!
Same thing followed with the mouse but I finally got to my desktop
launched CdB only to be informed I was running in Demo mode. I've never seen that before so decided to take the plunge and update to the latest version.
Bandlab assistant wouldn't run, just got the outline shell of the gui with a grey background and ghosted out options.
So I downloaded the latest version from the Bandlab website and the only way I could get it to install was by running it As Administrator
But it installed successfully, so did the CdB update.
So after a good couple of hours I was finally able to do some work
Wrapped everything up at the end and decided to bun a new CD for the car. Created the necessary files in CD Architect, popped a blank cdr in the drive and was greeted by a horrible grinding, clunking noise from the drive so it looks like that's shot as well.
I'm not sure if there is a moral to this story other than, even if you don't plan on using your daw for a while, it's probably a good idea to at least power it up/down once in a while.
