Road Block

I have a few posts in the works, I promise. There's some new stuff and plenty of older stuff (May-August stuff) to get posted. I've hit a roadblock for the time being, though.

My MacBook (Pro--holla!) has the dreaded "black screen". I did some homework while I was troubleshooting at home and found that there's a known issue with the NVIDIA graphics processor in some builds. If that's the case with mine (and I'm hoping it is!), the repair(s) will be free of charge. Cross your fingers for me.

Until then, I only have our PC to work on and I hate it. I avoid PCs at all costs these days. Ours is pretty new - an HP Quad Core Desktop (6GB of RAM and a 1TB HD) running Windows 7 that we bought in February. We haven't had any problems with it so far,'s a Windows-based machine which, I guess, is a problem in and of itself.


I guess I'll just have to deal for now. The Simply Mac store by my house is really fast with repairs, so I shouldn't be laid-up for too long!

Which blog do you want me to comment on? Or both?

I love my Mac book. I also have a PC. I'm a complete apple girl now. I hope yours gets fixed for FREE!!!

Ok, I thought I left a comment on here. Did I not? I'm losing my mind.

I will die if my Mac ever goes black on me. It will be a HORRIBLE day.

I know I left a comment because I said something about having a PC also and I never use it because i'm a total apple girl.

Fingers crossed for you that it's a free repair!!!
