My computer's in a coma. :C

Journal Entry: Sun Sep 12, 2010, 3:45 PM


Ffffffff. Yeah, so, my laptop monitor just died. Seems the machine is working, (there was a very very very dim vague sign of my desktop and I was able to open firefox somehow and could dim dim dim dimly see the vague outline of Billy on my deviantart page (my home page) so I know it's working and it's all there... have not been able to repeat being able to see that dim dim image though, now it's just blackness. :C I have an appointment to go get it checked out at the Mac Store tomorrow soooooo hopefully the damage is minor, whatever it is. X| From what my friend and I could dig up about it on the interwebs, it's not an uncommon thing, which is about the only thing stopping me from a panic attack at this point. (And rest my mind assured it wasn't something I had done.) Current theory is the video card fizzled- I have noticed it having trouble waking up from black-screen sleep mode sometimes, but had previously thought it was just me running too many programs at once. Starting to think it wasn't that now though >:/

At any rate, I have my desktop PC up again, this poor old beast needs some major overhauling but at least it gets me functional. Tried hooking up the monitor to my lappy, but it just did some weird thing with the default mac background and no menus? o_O I'm hoping that's just a PC/Mac incompatibility thing or fffffff. Another friend said this same thing happened to her sister though so gruh.

Also I come back and turns out ginchael is having issues too! MUST BE THAT TIME OF THE YEAR.

Just praying this isn't a costly repair. DX

P.S. Still working on the second Grappling Gun run, if anyone still wants to be thrown on board, I could really use the extra orders facing this unexpected computer hitch. DX

Some stirring going on on job fronts that are getting me excited about the future and impatient for the balls that need rolling to get rolling. Yeah, freelance! It's fun stuff.

Poor miss :( I understand how painful computer crappiness can be. :0

On the plus side, if they have to ship things from California... you are in California ;) IT WILL ONLY TAKE 5 SECONDS, because Mac is super speedy. Those super speedy whiz kid bastards.

God speed, and good luck! :heart:

Maybe it didn't clone the desktop on it, but it started in the "extended desktop" configuration...

Pfffft that makes perfect sense, and I'm faaaairly certain that's exactly what it is. Thanks so much!

Big question is how do I get it to do the normal "replace my laptop's monitor" configuration when I can't see my normal desktop! ;A;

Sometimes I see people changing the screen configuration on the laptop pressing some special keys on the keyboard...maybe in the manual there's something about it...

Thanks so much on the heads up! When I went to the applestore I was sure to ask what that shortcut was... at least I'm functional now until I get it fixed! DX

Ugh that sucks. I hope it works out well, that's one of my greatest computer-related fears.
