OT- My computer display module died - UPDATE
:( I am on my laptop with a lousy connection and no mouse! It just went black in the middle of my morning email/forum routine. Hope it's nothing serious, but I may not be around quite as much till I figure it out.

that's what happens when you say bad things about jon stewart!


i have only had that happen on my laptop and it was my motherboard. i would guess it was something different on your PC though. is it old-ish? connectors all clean and plugged in and all that?

Oh no Jan! I hate having to use my laptop, I feel like I'm missing a limb. Hope you figure it out soon.

The computer is only a couple years old and I have a fairly new video card. DH out for awhile, but when he comes back we'll check connections and make sure the card is seated properly. I doubt it's the card though based on the way it went out. ugh...

Ouch! Good thing you have some kind of back up, though. I'd be up the creek!

Oh MAN- I just skimmed the title of your post and thought it said your mother died! I was quite confused when reading the OP, thinking 'Why is she talking about her computer?' LMAO that will teach me to skim instead of actually reading.

I called Dell and a new monitor is on the way, no charge to me! It pays to get that extra service on things like computers!

LOL you guys! I guess monitor could look like mother. My mom died 33 yrs ago (on Mother's Day :rollseyes: ) so it would have been a shock to me, too!
