So I put the new computer together today and, inevitably, it just sat their beeping at me. Oh it was all happy go lucky and smiles 'till then.
The world has come on a pace since I used to fiddle with my 486. After diagnostics and reasoning worth of the pages of Conan Doyle, it looks like the graphics card is a turkey and will have to go back.
Total soddin' waste of a deliberatly empty bank holiday; and now I'm gonna be hangin' 'round the whole of next week, when the Mrs is away, when I was going to do 'the big install'. I am well hacked off.
Thanks to Big Morris, Jon W and Choppa for all the tech support. Bloody computers.
