Winning.

Yeah, not so much.

I mentioned that getting my new (to me) laptop was like winning a sweepstakes. Now I kinda feel like I won a spot on the Survivor Island.

A couple of days ago, it didn't wake up when I opened it. Hey, it's a computer. It happens.

Yesterday I woke up, started it up and I got nothing. (Worse, at the time, my cable modem was showing like two lights, so no web.) I futzed about with it, managed to get it to start up after about forty-five minutes. But I had a sinking feeling that things were about to get ugly.

Today I got home from work, booted it up, popped upstairs to get out of my work clothes and into game gear, and when I got back, I had a backlit blank screen. After a couple of tries, I got it to boot, but it actually blanked while I was online.

Started it again and again, surfed a while without incident, but when I decided to start up a little game, it blanked again.

Repeat, got it going, tried a different game, boom. Now it won't boot at all.
