This morning I got up, turned on my computer as usual at the power strip and the computer came on also. It never does that. I have to manually turn on the computer.
I tried to turn the computer off but it would not turn off unless I turned the power strip off.
All I got on my monitor was black, nothing, nil,
I tried punching buttons, nothing.
I didn't try hitting it or throwing it out of the window. Nothing that drastic.
So I decided to leave it alone all by its little self if that is what it wanted and went to my laptop.
Laptop worked fine so everything seemed to be connected alright.
So why a black monitor.
I have a friend who used to be a computer tec before starting his own home health care business so I called him.
Couldn't get him all day as his mom has been ill, his wife just got back from a month in Colombia which is her original home country and where most of her family lives. He had to take care of the two boys, his business and his mother who was in the hospital and was always faithful to be in church on Sunday morning tooting his horn. He plays a trumpet.
After finally getting him and explaining everything he thought my monitor was turned off. I don't even know where you turn the monitor on or off or at least I didn't. Well I find this little round circle with it looked liked a line marking midnight in it and pushed that while talking to him and the light came on.
It said my computer would not start so I had to click on something so they could fix it. And fix it they did. Now here I am on my PC.
I think my computer gets sick more than I do.
Computers are a lot like men. You can't live without them sometimes and then sometimes you can't live with them.
