How do I fix this. I have an older laptop which does not have a cd drive. When I start it up it says: hard disk read failure, no bootable devices, strike f1 to retry boot, f2 for set up utility. Hitting F1 displays the same message. I know I need to reinstall Windows according to this: http://safecomputing.umn.edu/guides/xpinstall.html
But I don't have a cd drive so......I don't know how to do that.2 AnswersOther - Hardware1 decade ago
So I don't have a very helpful guidance counselor. I am a junior in high school this year and I take 4 AP and honors classes, normal math, and orcestra. Freshman year I did very poorly (gpa was 2.7), sophomore year I did much better and raised my gpa to a 3.5. This year I'm defnitely aiming to bring it up to atleast a 3.8.
In orcestra I will be first chair this year and next year.
I participate in a youth group.
I have been part of a charity club since freshman year and plan to run for a leadership position when I'm a senior.
I won a state award for a piece of literature this year.
and this summer I plan to volenteer abroad working in an orphanage.
I know my extra curriculars aren't as stacked as they should be for a top school as well as the fact that I don't do sports, and my gpa is average, but if I do very well on the SATS can I hope for something higher than a state school?
Also, can you name I school I might be able to get into?3 AnswersHigher Education (University +)1 decade ago
Today I told my mom that I wanted to look at Colorado College as my top choice school, but she immediately put me down and said it had a reputation as a school for "rich flunkies who couldn't get in anywhere better." Is this true?
I was attracted to the college for the block plan, beautiful location, and generally hearing good things about the education and people. I take AP and honors classes with about a 3.5 gpa and have a love of the outdoors so I thought it would be a good fit.5 AnswersHigher Education (University +)1 decade ago

I screwed up my freshman year. REALLY bad, I'm talking about a 2.2 GPA....yeah.
Anyways, I am a sophomore now and working really hard, I've mostly A's this year and B+s in math and English. I have a 3.6 gpa unweighted and a 3.9 weighted. I know its still not high enough for were I want to go to college.
I am taking honors English, history, and Latin and advanced math and biology.
Next year I am taking AP Lit, history, and Latin; honors chemistry; and advanced math. I already have 55 hours of volunteering and I am working on a housing project 5 weeks this summer. As for extra curricular activities, I play the piano and the trumpet in the school band (I will be receiving a leadership position next year), play on the soccer team, and I am part of the student action club.
The schools I am interested in are: Pomona College (reach, first choice), Oberlin, Skidmore, Ithaca, or McGill ( super reach). I also have safety schools picked out but I really want to make it at one of these. Sorry that was really long.3 AnswersHigher Education (University +)1 decade ago

First let me clarify:
I live on a very safe island with a low population. There are no busy roads, and when there are cars in tourist season they have to drive really slow because of all the stupid.
I know there's concern about people who steal cats and try to poison them, but honestly I'm positive there has been no kind of incident like this where I live.
I don't see what is wrong with keeping my cat outside. There's no wild animals that would hurt him. Whats wrong with this?17 AnswersCats1 decade ago

Hi, I'm a junior in high school and right now I'm taking math at the advanced level, but we do all the same stuff as honors, we are just like a week behind them! I want to take AP next year so I won't have to take introductory courses in college, but do you think it is a bad idea to skip a difficulty level?2 AnswersPrimary & Secondary Education1 decade ago
I can't seem to help myself, I got really weird cravings this weeks (like a pregnant woman but its impossible for me to be pregnant because I'm a virgin) and I consumed about 500 extra calories per day!

What's you opinion about this?
I think that people get purbreds as only a status symbol or because they want puppies. Its a shame that shelter dogs are so overlooked because some of them are such great dogs!

She's way prettier than I am and all the guys like her, but she's kind of shallow and wouldn't consider to give them the time of day, she gets better grades and recognitions, is a varsity athlete, etc.
I feel bad being so jealous of her, but its hard to hear her talk about all these things when she doesn't realize how lucky she is.12 AnswersFriends1 decade ago
