More Computer Troubles


In case I seem to be neglecting people, I apologize. Still having trouble with the computer. New screen keeps breaking up into fragments and then freezing and then when I try to boot back up, the monitor says "no signal," even though I can hear that the computer has booted up. Turning the power completely off from everything seems to help but it takes varying amounts of time for the fix to take. I'm moving int being pretty cranky now. Pretty darn cranky. Very cranky. Like mega cranky. I'm not sure how well I'll survive another week or more without my computer. It's like asking a junkie to go cold turkey. Not pretty.

I was going to try to add a picture to this post but I had to shut down twice so I think maybe I'll just post words today. Sigh.

Pray for me. Pray for my computer.

I'm not a praying sort of guy, but my best wishes are on their way to you right now. I know from experience what it's like to have a faulty computer. When I was getting my laptop repaired, I got withdrawal symptoms!

I wish I was rich. Along with my prayer I's send you a new laptop!

Hi Raven, I came here at Michelle's invitation (Crows Feet)... and I am glad I did.

It seems to me your needs some major cleaning ... Do you know how to do it?

The cleaning and defragement will take a little time. My daughter comes over every week and clean mine out, I can do it, but she does it better. If you are online, just email me and I will walk you through it. It's not that hard to do.

Thanks for the good wishes everyone. This morning things seem relatively stable but it's only been about 10 minutes. Couldn't last more than about a minute and a half last night.

I think I need a new video card. In a brief moment of clarity yesterday I clicked on the diagnosis tools and it said something about no drivers installed. I actually defrag fairly regularly and I keep most of my photos and writing on an external drive after a few tragedies, so I think maybe this is an equipment problem. I'm hoping my friend Nate can come over and make it all better.

Whew. I've checked my email and typed all this and no pixels yet. Yee ha!

I take it you've tried Reiki on it?

That's enough to make anyone justifiably cranky. Hang in there.

Your wish is my desire to pray for you and your computer.

Coffee is on.

Praying for you always Raven and that your problems will soon be over with your computer.

It's not so pretty that we are addicted is it - I know - my name is Carletta and I'm a blogoholic!
I rediscoverd Solitaire the past couple of days and now I'm really blurry eyed.
Warm here for the moment but it seems we could get 3-6 inches of snow between tonight and tomorrow.
Hope you are back soon.

Raven, you may be losing your power supply...mine did the same thing and we replaced the power supply and all was well...I hope it's something that simple!
