I’ve been having a lot of computer problems lately. Last week I had a monitor go out on me (I have dual monitors) so I was working with one. I had an old one I supplemented but it was awkward. I’ve also been having some problems rebooting my PC. It just wouldn’t reboot. I would have to put in my Windows disk and do a restore from a previous time. I figured out that it was an update that was not allowing the PC to reboot.
I thought I fixed that because it had been working OK the last couple of days. Today I bought two new monitors (matching) and when I while I was hooking them up I decided to clean the desk while I was moving them. I did that. I also decided to turn my keyboard upside down and shake the raisin bread crumbs out of it. Well, I accidentally hit the Sleep key and the thing went to sleep and wouldn’t wake up. I kept trying to restart it and had the same trouble as before. I did some Google research on our other PC and found a couple things to try. I decided to unconnect the computer from it’s spaghetti of wires and take it apart and clean it out. It was a tad dusty. I finally got the main stuff hooked back up and restored the operating system but now I have no sound. Everything else seems to be functioning right. I’ll look into the sound problem before long. I’ll try another cable first.
I’m going to be gone most of the day tomorrow but I’ll try to post a few things before I go and I’ll have an open mic.
Update: Got the speakers working, so I’m back in business.
