The Father-In-Law rang me last night wanting me to 'fix' his computer. (He
lives in Perth and I'm in Melbourne!)
Seems the Mother-In-Law was playing her 'Mah-jong game, (probably the most
graphics advanced program they run!), and the screen went black on her. Now
apparently, all he gets on the screen is a question along the lines of
"Video Cable Connected?" and nothing else.
I suggested either the monitor or the video card may have died, and advised
him to pull the video card and re-insert it, and whilst he was there to blow
what I can only guess is a huge amount of dust away.
He hasn't done it yet, but said he would in the next day or so. Was my guess
at the problem correct?
I'm not always right,
But I'm never wrong!
