Two months ago this very day, AD bought me a new computer with this large monitor. SO NICE!
Sunday night I worked on the computer and everything was fine and dandy.
Yesterday when I turned on the monitor the left side of it was very dark and then a second later the whole screen went black.
So I turned the computer off, let it sit a little while, and turned it back on thinking that might possibly fix the problem. Nope! It did the very same thing again.
I called AD and he said to just wait until he got home to check everything out. He knows I'm not too good with hardware issues.
If I couldn't see the screen, then I couldn't blog.
When AD got home he unplugged everything, plugged all back in but still no go. So he got this old monitor and set it up. It worked. That meant the new monitor was bad.
Next we dug out the receipt where we purchased the computer. There was a 90 day return policy. Great! We could return it and get another one. AD only wanted to return the monitor, otherwise he'd have to strip all the software we'd loaded and reformat the hard drive. He called the store.
Unfortunately they no longer carried this particular model. Imagine that! We could return everything for a full refund (with the receipt of course) and then purchase another computer. AD said he'd get back to them on that.
Then he called the manufacturer and talked to the tech people. Long story short - they're sending me a new monitor and we'll return the bad one. Excellent service, we thought.
So for now, I'm using this little, old monitor, hoping that it doesn't decide to do a nose-dive on me. And I'm happy. I can blog again.
