Fun news first...Jason sent me a 4 second clip from the first Evita rehearsal they had tonight. Yay!

And...I'll probably finish Ender's Game tonight.

............

And the bad shit...

I honestly don't know what's wrong with my computer. I've tried everything I can think of to try, but the bugger's 4 and a half years old. And it's a PC. It's obviously a grimm future.

So here's my issues(and maybe some of y'all can help):
-The resolution is funky (I had to compensate by screwing with the actual resolution)
-The colors are all grainy, or just plain wrong (usually reverting to a gray color)
-There are funky dashed lines around all the windows
-It's overall just really slow
-Highlighting stuff makes it purple

I've restarted, I've shut down, I've cleaned out files (though now most of the big stuff lives on the other computer because they are networked), I've turned off the sleep function and the screen saver, I've taken things out of the startup function (it was opening about 10 programs each time it was rebooted...poor thing). *sigh* Oy. Not now, you piece of shit. Please.


SO! Any suggestions? Please? Bueller?

Check to see if there are updated drivers for your video card.

Re:
One of my friends told me to do that today! Yay.

I just don't know how to go about that. Nor do I know what kind of video card I have. Though I haven't spent much time looking...

Thank you though!!

Right click on My Computer and go to properties
Go to Hardware and then Device Manager

If your driver is no longer good a yellow circle with a black exclamation point will appear next to that driver. It should say what type of driver you need/have.
