Took the computer to Best Buy Geek Squad and told them the monitor went grey, and had no start button icon or error messages...nada. I shut the computer down thinking/hoping when I turned it on again all would be good with the world. HA! Not so lucky. So didn't know if the problem was my computer or the monitor.
Geek plugged in my tower and my icons came up so there was a pulse there. He checked a couple things out (sadly I didn't take the old monitor) and said he didn't see any problems with the computer. I purchased a new monitor and since this scared me decided to FINALLY buy an external hard drive, a 1T.
Brought the computer in, connected all the wires as well as the new monitor. Turned on the PC and within 3 seconds and without even a full boot it shuts itself off. A second later it tried to start up again and failed.
I called Geek Squad and talked to the guy who helped me. He couldn't understand what may have happened in that 30 minute ride while my computer was Sitting in the seat secured with a seatbelt. So tomorrow I'm taking everything back to Best Buy and have them figure out what the problem is. Sure hope I haven't lost everything anyway, and sure hope I don't have to purchase a new computer.
Well let's see if I can successfully publish this and I'm going to sit and hook to get my Blood pressure back to normal.
Here is a picture from a section of my Magdalena Farm rug. Hope your last couple days has gone better than mine.
