Two weeks ago, my old laptop died. After 5-6yrs in service, she finally kicked the bucket. Funny how it started. Our office was renovated, have my new office table. Brought my Lappy in the office. Somehow I noticed, there are ants crawling their way to old lappy. I just wipe them off with a rug and didn't mind them at all. I thought the ants found some crumbs under lappy because I've been eating while working. I call it multi-tasking :-) ... Anyhoo, every time I wipe off the ants, more would crawl their way back. I was intrigued.
So one day, I went out the office. When I came back, lappy was turned off. So, I turned her back on. Suddenly a bios message popped out, something like "Insert disk" or "No bootable disk found". I was shocked. So I entered the bios and found that the hard drive was not detected.
When I got home, I removed the hard drive panel under lappy only to find out that there were a lot of ants inside. When I took out the drive, there were more ants on the drive and inside lappy. I never opened the back panel ever since I had lappy, so why are there ants inside?
To this day I could not explain why the ants were attracted to the hard drive. This was a weird occurrence for me.
Rest in Peace Lappy
