_stink_hah, yes03:01
gamerchick02welcome back cmaloney17:00
cmaloneyComputer locked up17:00
gamerchick02at least it's back. mine is dead17:01
gamerchick02well i have the ubuntu laptop17:01
cmaloneyThat's no fun17:01
gamerchick02i tried to upgrade the hard drive which required removing the graphics card so i'd have enough room to plug in the SATA cables and something happened. i don't know what. it's either the mobo or the power supply. so i'm going to microcenter sometime next week to get them to diagnose it and figure out a repair.17:02
cmaloneyGood luck17:04
gamerchick02microcenter has a 17 day backlog right now17:12
gamerchick02they lost power for like 4 days17:12
cmaloneyOh that's no fun17:13
cmaloneyI didn't realize they were down as well17:13
gamerchick02so. $40 for a diagnostic, $130 for the repair, plus parts17:14
gamerchick02so i'm looking at $400 about to get this fixed if i need a new mobo and chip17:15
gamerchick02well i can swing it. i don't WANT to but i need the desktop17:15
gamerchick02my gaming addiction calls for it. :-P17:16
gamerchick02i like having separated computers for different functions. an ubuntu laptop and a windows desktop17:16
