We took the computer apart last night. The monitor wasn't the problem. It was not a video card issue. The power supply isn't broken. The RAM is fine. So we are pretty much down to it is the motherboard or the cpu. Bleh. So it looks like I will have to replace my computer. Sucks but it happens. I got almost 8 years out of the desktop so I'm not so terribly upset. Just hate having to drop so much dough. Glad it is tax time! Crossing my fingers for a refund.
My netbook makes it nearly impossible to blog. It likes to refresh the screen, go up and down randomly, and doesn't like opening web pages. It is pretty much only good for word processing. I will continue to update as I can so you know when I'll be back online. I hope it wont be more than a few days. I'm working on getting a temporary replacement from a family member to use until I can get a new rig. Will let you know.
Love is love, no matter the back story. <3 DS
