Computer problems

This morning I turned on the computer, did a few maintenance things, restarted and Windows wouldn't load...again. Only this time safe mode, Command Prompt, Restore, nothing worked. It's a video card problem - hardware or software and we're thinking software. I've got it operating on a single monitor and am backing up everything before continuing. I may end up restoring to factory settings and reinstalling everything if the two other things I can try don't work. :( Very time consuming and I'm hoping I don't have to do that. Meanwhile, I'm on the dinky little laptop. Good thing I got the network back up and running!

I got a call from the bakery this morning. It seems like orders are way down and they are going to be done early on friday and wanted to know if I wanted to take an extra day off or come in and get my time in. We've got snow, icy roads, and I'm only 5 hours shy of my time for the week anyway. Three day weekend!!! Yeah, the computer's taking up one of them. :(

Did your computer get attacked? Whatever happened, it sounds miserable.

Also the icy roads sound miserable. My parents said that downtown everybody's sliding every which way. Treacherous. :(

I upgraded the video card and I think the software installation got corrupted. So I'm doing a complete backup of all my files before I try fixing it again.

Most of the main roads aren't too bad but it's all the side streets that you can't get off of or onto without sliding that is really nasty. I'd just as soon stay home until it's gone but as the old saying goes - everyone has to eat. I'm just wondering who all these people are who's going out to Burger King, Wendy's, Burgerville, Red Robin, etc. I'd be staying home even if I had to cook! lol
