Sent the computer in today. Never managed to salvage anything off the hard drive. I think I figured out how to get the MP3s off my iPod, but I’m not completely sure where it is at this point.
I hooked up my old computer, but the monitor isn’t working at all. Probably because I have too much storage room, I have the monitor from my computer previous to this one (maybe 10-12 years old), and tried hooking it up. It gets all the way into Windows 98 loading screen, and then nothing; I can hear it process, I just can’t see anything on th screen – I figure the resolution set for this computer’s monitor doesn’t work with the older smaller one. This could easily be fixed if I could get into Safe Mode, so of course it’s not letting me into safe mode.
I’m hoping to figure out some way of fixing this before I have to do anything involving watching TV and writing (instead of just typing for no real reason.) I think I can temporarily hook the computer up to a monitor with higher resolution and change the settings, but I dunno.
This is all going so well. Should’ve just bought a computer; by the time I’d get it now, I figure the laptop should be back and fixed. I hope so, at least.
Digression: Early highlight of April stats is lots of hits from rivals.com, as one another.
