Hey guys, I have a problem. X3 My sister, being my sister, didn't tell me anything about the problems she was having earlier with her PC, and now she's pretty much broken it somehow. No matter what monitor I give it, it refuses to display something - just a black screen. I've tried a TV with a HDMI cable, a monitor with just the normal cable - that I know works because I just hooked it up to my laptop with no problem whatsoever. Does anyone know why my PC is just not giving a shit about the display? The power plug is in fine, there's no beeps or anything. According to her, she'd have to stop and start the PC back up numerous times to get it to display something, and now it doesn't do anything at all. WISH SHE TOLD ME SOONER WHILST I HAD SOMETHING TO LOOK AT.

If it doesn't show anything at all - even the POST or boot up diagnostics then I'm afraid the graphics card may have failed. Replacement is the only option then. Good news they are not that expensive now and there are cheap second-hand ones on Amazon or EBay. Bad news - shipping may be more expensive that the card...

Yeah in all honesty, I see nothing wrong with Comic Sans. Sure, it has the comic book font look to it (hence the name), but is it really that bad? Is it really truly table flipping bad?

This isn't so much a comment of "I hate comic sans" so much as it is a "did they really just use it in a business environment?"

I mean I don't hate Comic Sans in general,it's about what Rarity said.

 

Still waiting for an answer to my previous question.

Well, MrKittyCat technically already replied. X3 Not too sure what you mean though. Schedule? Like... a weekly thing? I'd imagine that'd be rather tedious and not a lot of people wouldn't be able to roll with that. I mean, we had a good party yesterday which was formed basically because JekkyRoo said there's stuff happening in the IRC. XD We had Username, JekkyRoo, AP_Pastor, MrKittyCat and myself.

Well, 13pm doesn't exactly exist... XP But I mean, we can try to make it work. :lol:

You also gotta give way more detail than that mate. What time zone? UCT x+? Personally, I think just saying; "I'm on the IRC" is good enough. XD Like JekkyRoo did. I've been on the IRC for the past 6 hours now, nobody is usually online during that time though. Will be on the IRC for the next 3 hours though... if anyone wants to join.

Great, I'm 3 days late to the party... Also, that is definitely either a dead video card, (extremely high likelihood) or the slot the card is plugged into is dead. (unbelievably low likelihood, despite my own experience of it happening on 3 different machines)
