Oh, I Wish I Were a Dell Computer Expert!

That is what I truly want to be!
For if I were a Dell computer expert,
everyone would be in love with me! I could get my computer to work.

Well, I had the best of intentions. I really intended to post more. Really! My computer, Delbert, apparently does not think I should post more though because sometime over the weekend, Delbert became ill. Hopefully, he's just ill and not dead, for I am really quite attached to Delbert, even though he decided to get sick only two weeks after his warranty expired! Isn't that just like a man? Err...I mean, computer?

From the symptoms Delbert is exhibiting, I am guessing that his video card is broken, but I'm not really sure, and if I'm right, I'm not really sure what to do about it. Probably, the smartest thing to do would be to call the tech number, but I'm sure I would get some guy with a really thick Pakistani accent, and I'm so awful at understanding accents that are different from my own. I am accent challenged. When my inability to understand accents is combined with my inability to understand computers with Windows Vista, it's not pretty.

Fortunately, my husband was able to get our old laptop, Della, hooked up, so I won't have to curl up and die from Internet deprivation. That would have been sad. :) Now that I have a computer that's actually working, maybe I can figure out what's wrong with my poor Delbert! I hope so--I don't know what I'd wear to a computer's funeral.
