Does your computer crash often?

Do you panic when this happens, and especially when you get an odd message, or the "Blue Screen of Death" as it is known?

I do usually panic as I think immediatley that I will not have a computer for a few days.

This sends me into a panic as am addicted to the computer and spend a lot of time on it.

I now have my technician log in to the computer and they can fix it without a call out generally which generally calms me a bit.

Luckily this does not happen often -TOUCH WOOD

I worked in IT for a number of years, and I still hated seeing the blue screen on my home. Thoughts like 'when was the last time I backed up my files' and 'how much is this going to cost me in replacement hardware'. I'm so happy my wife and I moved from Windows to Mac. It's been about 8 years now and we've only had one issue between the two of us - a video card died - and that's it.
Sooooo I'm not the only one!

That makes me feel heaps better, but! it's not just us.
I think a lot would not admit they felt maybe the same.
I'm on mine a lot of the time, when not working.
Having said that, for a lot of people who live alone, it is a way to connect.
Just after this question my computer crashed like BIG TIME! 6 days in repair shop! so now it's not a panic, I had a nervous B/down.....

Yes I do panic BIG TIME if this happens as I have a small business and vital files (however backup regularly).

There are other computers in the house that I can use if my personal one dies, the problem is that all our birth photos and video are on mine. I need to back it up …. YES I PANIC!!!!
I don't panic but start hoping for the best that it'll be okay - I usually just reset computer and that tends to work

It doesn't happen too often (touchwood), but I freak out when it does, because I never have my stuff backed up to the latest date! :( It sucks how much we rely on technology!
but Xarah -it is the age of technology -that's life now to rely on it!

If this ever does happn,I do not panic at all,I am definitely not addicted to the computer and can easily go a day or more without even switching it on!!
The blue screen of death always makes me panic! I worry if I've lost all my "stuff' on the computer, how long I'm going to be without, if we're going to need to fork out money (which we don't have) to buy a new one...I'm not going to jinx myself by saying whether my computer crashes often or not!
Doesn't happen often, but I do freak out when it does.

My computer has had the occasional crash and yes I do panic. I use my computer a lot and am comfortable with it.
depends on the type of information on it. If have sensitive & other things for keep. Then, definitely go haywire.
as I have a good friend who helps me.
He is very knowledgeable about PCs and faults.
I have learnt much from him and have learn't never panic and never delete something unless you know why or what for.
My computer rarely crashes as I run a good anti-virus and anti- Malware

My ITablet is offline more than it's online.
When I hit 'submit', 'next' etc, it decides to go offline.
What should take a few minutes ends up taking nearly an hour.
Trying to book a Theatre ticket is practically an impossibility. Actually, ditto that for ANYTHING I'm trying to buy online.

One day, I was SO frustrated with its' slowness, I nearly, in a fit of pique, smashed it to smithereens on the floor!

I get totally fed up with its' slowness, & unavailability!
I don't panic,but I know I would miss the computer for a few days.
