Out Of Service

Post by Riddick » 12-15-2022 02:43 PM

I'm chasing a particularly elusive PC desktop monitor problem that's gonna curtail my usual lurking & posting for awhile. Hopefully I can nail down what's causing it & can correct it & get back in the groove before all too long. Wish me luck & BCNU L8R

I'm wishing you luck. Beware! There are "Grimlins" around.

Well, that wasn't too bad. I was worried the video card was the issue but it was the monitor. I got a replacement at the thrift mart for $4 AND a monitor for my old XP for 2! Both are superior to what I had. Good luck with the bad luck my mom would say.

The only crimp came about when my curious kitty bumped the power strip while I was in the replacement set-up. That hosed up the config but I found another way to do it that gives me more resolution options. More good fortune - Black cats aren't all bad luck!
