[LJ2ME] Computerless
My PC has died for the second time this week.

It started Tuesday or Wednesday - the screen would flicker every time a window would update. Thursday night the screen froze - but it was apparent that the machine still working - audio clues that meant I could shut down the machine properly.

Saturday I buggered about with the graphics drivers - the machine appears to work okay in safe mode which pointed to driver problems. This didn't solve the problem.

Sunday I swapped out the graphics card - the old one was in a pretty bad way - the fan had got gunked up and stopped turning - the chip had obviously fried itself - the smell of burnt chips is not a good smell!

All seemed to be working okay - but last night the screen flicker was back and it froze up on me again.

PC access will be limited to work for a while - which means no access to my home email.

First iPod - now PC - I wonder what the third thing will be...

Current Location: District Line
Current Mood: sad sad

Re: computerless....

I think it is beyond help now.

I've ordered another. it's going to be a rough couple weeks before it arrives.
