Do you ever have one of those days where you think everything's okay and dandy, but then something comes along and royally screws it up for you? Well, I had one of those days today. And I did not like it. I've had my Dell gaming PC for three and a half years now. This is the third laptop I've owned, and my fourth computer total. Well, after months of getting all glitchy on me, getting three blue screens of death, Anti-Virus systems failing on me, and the DVD player crapping out every time I try to put a CD in there, it seems that my computer is finally dying. I was in the middle of working on my Transformers wishlist, when I realized that there were some green slashes of pixels across the screen. I thought this was another virus again, and so I decided to just turn off the computer and reboot it. Unfortunately, this didn't really do so well because when I restarted my computer, the screen was just solid white, and then it looked like the borders were melting into black, kinda like the end of one of those old film reels. I told my brother about this, and he told me that it could be the video card in the computer. Problem is, he doesn't remember if the video card is seperate on the laptop, or if it was part of the motherboard. I even dusted the entire thing and I still had no luck. When my dad got home, even he couldn't figure it out. So now I'm technically computerless (well, I'm typing from my dad's old laptop for now), but the family and I have made a tentative plan. My dad will take my computer in to a repair shop, so hopefully the people who work there know what the problem is. It doesn't really matter if the computer can be repaired or not, it's still gonna have to go. The option I have is that I can either get my mom's computer, which has Windows Vista on it (not used to that, and I've heard the stories about how evil it is ), or I can just get a Macbook. Which should I choose?
