Well, alright. The Dreamweaver is bloody downloading, but I won't get my SPSS back. That was a copy someone let me have, I don't have a CD or anything.
It's gonna be hours and days of hassle to get all I need back together on my computer.
Now, my question is: what do I do to the store that sold me this memory card? It was through ebay, but it's a big store that sells new equipment. It said it's compatible with my computer model... but I think it hardly is.
They rand a diagnostic test (well, I did, I was guided over the phone) - at that time i had the original memory card back in. all hardware was ok, he said. So it was a software/driver cause. I didn't install anything else anytime recently, the memory card was placed in on Friday. I don't think I can prove it's a direct cause of it crashing my system, but I'm 93% sure it was.
I still want a bigger RAM though. Should I return this card, demand a refund (if not even some reimbursement for damage!) and just suck it up and go for a more expensive Dell card?
