My laptop went down.
It all started Monday night when the screen started flickering. I didn't think anything of it at the time, but when I started working on it Tuesday, the screen flickered so bad at times that I thought the laptop was going to blow up--not literally, but you get my meaning. The flickering screen would go on for four or five minutes and then stop. Well, like anybody nowadays when a challenge sets itself up, I consult Dr. Google.
With the dual partnership with YouTube (yes, I know they're on in the same company), I discovered a myriad of diagnosis: ranging from a loose connector to a fried motherboard. I consulted with a guy I work with, and even with a relative, who came to the same conclusion: try hooking an external monitor to it.
Great! I have two! Unfortunately, one didn't work and the other wasn't working either . . . however, as of yesterday, I did hook one of them up and it miraculously works. I'm still searching for a new laptop, but will need to save for it.
Luckily, how I write this blog is simple: on weekends or the week before I write out the five blogs for the next week. In this case, it worked out because my blogs were scheduled and released without a hitch, and all without the world knowing the problems.
But now I'm writing this on Sunday night and if I happen to skip a day (I'm hoping this shouldn't happen) you know it's because the laptop is acting up again and I haven't frequented the computer store to get a new one.
