Main laptop is being a jerk. First the keyboard stared randomly scrolling, then it stopped working after reboot. Several reboots, it still didn't work but everything else was fine. I wanted to take a look at the BIOS settings, so I plugged in an external USB keyboard and hit F2 at startup. Except the BIOS doesn't want to work with an external keyboard, only the built in one, which doesn't work. Having no control and no way to exit, I rebooted. Now the BIOS is stuck at 20% and won't load any farther.

I should've just assumed the keyboard was hosed and left things alone and just used the USB keyboard. But, no, I had to fuck with it and now things are hosed. I don't think it's the hard drive, because I haven't had any problems with disc access and no performance issues other than the keyboard.

I'm downloading a recovery cd, but I'll have to copy it to my old, slow PC to burn it to cd.

I'm so glad that I uploaded my SGA Reverse Big Bang art to my server for the art betas. Sadly, that's the version that I'm going to have to stick with if I can't get the laptop running again. What sucks is I had a good preview image that I'd cobbled together to comply with the 400x400 size limit and I'll have to redo that.
