Lord have mercy, Suzanne! I would die! I'm so heat intolerant it's not even funny! Well, I'm in Ohio, so we have heat and humidity both too. But today here was only 86. So I live in the A/C or in the pool!

I remember once driving to California when I was a teenager with my parents, and we stopped to camp in Arizona and it was 103 at 10pm at night! It felt like an oven!

During the first heat wave a few weeks ago, it was 105F at 1 in the morning!!!

~~~by 8am it is already in the 90's these days! lol

No wayyyyyy, no howwww!

And, then probably be on it for 2 days straight

Melisa - you'd have *loved* the 115-117F degree days we had a few weeks ago, LOL!

However, I have wonderful air conditioning, a nice wet pool, and a great umbrella to give me shade! heheheheh

It's not so bad with all of those things :D :D :D

It is almost noon and then I decided to just hook up my old tower to all the new stuff including all the wires..and it works..so it's the tower crying computersmi computersmi computersmi

Ok found out what that "no input signal meant..that is when your computer isn't turned on..what an idiot..it's just a screen saver..

BUT...other than that on the monitor screen it is blank and black..nothing with the other tower..

I went into my old tower and cleaned it out of all the dust and dirt..and guess what no bugs lol..so for now I will use this old tower until Suzanne gets online and we can figure this out..I know it has to be simple..I hope it was something that her son did when he just cleaned all the programs and things out

Well between Suzanne and her brother they think in the move the graphics card may have come loose..so tomorrow I will get the name and phone number of the computer place in town and see how much they will charge to take a look at it..I really hope that is the only thing wrong..

We have a major storm coming over us..and the way the clouds are looking somewhere East of us they may get a tornado out of it..those clouds really look wicked..

I have no game now all my bookmarks are put in place and I have no Skype right now..so I am bored..but I still have a few chapters of Joanne's stories I will have time to read now lol..

Be safe if your in the path of these storms..

My brother and I were burning up the phones attempting to figure out what was happening...

...most likely it is the graphics card; however, it could be something else that came loose during shipping.

Good news? A computer repair guy can run through the entire system in a very short time.

Hope is not lost!!! <3

The computer repair gentleman is standing by his work, though :D

He told Sam he'd come to her home tomorrow! :D

Awwww, Sam! Hang in there girlfriend! I know it's hard and frustrating, and so disappointing, but you'll get your new PC up and running and then you'll have forgotten all about this!

Trust me, I know! When I bought a new computer about 5 years ago I bought a new graphics card for it, only to realize that I had a mini tower and the card I bought wouldn't fit because the fan was right on top of the case and there was no room. I had made sure to get the same kind as far as connections go, but I never realized that I would be dealing with a height issue and where the graphics card had to go. I was SOOOOOO UPSET!! I had been without a graphics card for weeks! And, even tho I could still get online and do things with my onboard graphics card, I couldn't get on Second Life, which at that time, I owned a music venue club on it, and therefore I couldn't get on to DJ either! My daughter's boyfriend ended up doing surgery on my case, and literally cutting a whole with a drimmel on the top of my tower case so the graphics card fan could stick out .... it was nerve racking thinking he was going to slice a wire on accident while he was cutting, but it turned out fine and worked great!

So, just have a little faith and patience and be thankful you can still get online and chat with all of us to occupy your time until you're up and running! budhug

We're going to see if we can figure out what the problem is...

...then we'll know if there's a cost (or not). :D

Awww Sam! That's so disappointing! I kept waiting all day for you to log on and be yippee'ing it up! I'm keeping my fingers crossed it's something simple.

So was it working when the computer guy was there?

What's it doing? Maybe if you tell us, someone here might have had a similar problem before and can give you suggestions on what to try.

Terry has a friend that works on Computers...if I understood it right..
Him and his wife became truck drivers..and I think they will be in town Monday...Terry is going to talk to him..I know Carl..and he won't charge me or Terry a dime..so let's see..

I don't know TJ..it's been hard to explain it all the everyone..to do that all over again..

I'm headed back to bed..I'm soooo tired..anymore..I just don't have any energy..

Well like a typical man..Carl won't be showing up..like he said he would..what was described he thinks the graphic card has gone out..

I will call the computer place tomorrow..and see what he says..I don't know..I think I will have to just continue using this old computer until I come up with the money to check out the other one..so back to the drawing board and get my game back downloaded..

I'm going through computer and game withdrawals.. lol

Today is Tanaja's Birthday..she turned 10..that is John's daughter..that was a long and stressful day being around soooo many people..but it was just 2 hours lol..then came home and had to do laundry..

Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend..and hope you all have a great week..

Sam - Well that stinks that he won't come over for a few minutes to check it out! But one free way to check to see if it's the graphics card, is to remove it (unplug everything first (of course! LOL), open the case, and pop it out ... no tools needed (well maybe for the case, not sure what kind you have), then just pull it out. They're very easy to remove and replace. They just snap into the slots and you'll hear a click when it's in place. ) ... then plug it all back in and turn it on. If it comes on fine just using the onboard graphics then it's more than likely your graphics card.

Thank you TJ..

You know I went ahead and figured if this computer blew up..I wouldn't say a thing until I got it fixed lol..
So I went ahead and undid those 2 pieces to the graphic card..and plugged them back in..still nothing..
I just talked to Suzanne on the phone..I'm going to wrap everything in black trash bags and then put everything back in the boxes and duck tape them up..and just wait till I have the money to fix it..
My old computer still works..and I hold my breath daily when I turn it on..so until it totally goes out I will continue using it..
I'm going to get my game back up and running so I can play the game again..and also do some recolors, and create walls maybe try out floors..and I have some beautiful Pictures for Murals I want to do..
Suzanne feels bad but it's not her fault..it was all working when she shipped it..so something happened during the shipping..

All is good..for now..lol..

I wish you lived closer as well TJ..it would make my life a bit easier lol..
