And there was nothing...

Two days ago I got up as usual and went over to my computer to start my day with some tea and a check on my emails when... nothing... NO!!!! My computer would not start. There was a couple of frantic calls made to the husband (after 3 I realized he was still in a meeting *sigh*) and when he came home that night we tried everything. It seems my screencard had given in, so now I am on my husbands computer... :)

We got to vote in South Africa's national elections yesterday. It was my third time voting and while my inlaws went back a few times cause the rows were to long in Bloem, we just strolled through in under 15 minutes. :) Apart from an annoying black mark on my left thumb we did manage to get a free Wimpy coffee! The rest of my computerless day was spent on the couch wathing Sex and the City (I have the complete boxset!) I am still on season 3 but flashing through at the moment.

On Tuesday after my husband's interview we are off to Bloem for a nice visit. And yesterday some negotiations started about going to England in September. Yay! My first overseas trip!!! :D

Hmm, you sure its not your power supply? Graphics cards normally allow the machine to turn on, but no picture to come on the screen, or the machine will beep the code for failed graphics (three short beeps I think, though that could be ram)...yay for England trip! Hope it works out!

No, the computer has power, when the screen card is taken out I can access everything over the betwork. If the screen card is in the computer has power but does not beep or boot up. :\

Yikes! I would freak out if my computer didn't work! Glad hubby got it taken care of! :-)
