So... Am I LUCKY? or what??? This is a story for people who feel that things are hopeless when they drop their computer and the display goes out!! First off, my computer was stolen. I got it back. That is another story. THEN.... the charger port went off the rails, so, I found a guy to change it out for 90 bucks including the part. WELL... when he was fixing it, he did something wrong, and messed up the motherboard. He was a pro...he replaced the motherboard and charger port and still only charged me the 90 bucks. Top notch guy. After about 2 weeks... I was taking the computer to the printer to print something. I stepped over my yellow lab and for whatever reason, she decided to GET UP at that same moment...so, she tripped me. Both me AND my computer took a hard fall. CRASHHHHHH!! OMG! I freaked out. My computer hit very very HARD on a tile floor, and worse than that... NO DISPLAY. I could hear it boot up...and the keyboard lit up...but, darn it, no display. I'm not gonna lie, I cried for a second. But, I sucked it up. Took the bad news, and tried to figure out what to do. I Googled and saw that I could try to use the computer with an attached monitor IF it would actually work. I went to Treasure Island and picked up a small flat screen tv that my friend had and we hooked it up to the laptop and YAY.... it worked! It is NOT the same of course, but, you know, I can't be too picky about it. I was told it would cost a MINIMUM of 400 to 600 to fix, and I just couldn't afford it. So, even though it was not ideal, I was ok with using the tv as a monitor. Well, I used the hooked up computer & tv, using it overnight, it was fine and went well, even though a bit awkward. This morning, I was doing something, and OMG...guess what? My SCREEN CAME ON!!!! YES! What the heck!!! It was like it went into a coma and then came out of it! CRAZY! I was scared to death to move it at all, thinking it was going to go "out" again, but I have used it ALLLL day and it is still ON! I am still afraid to close it or log off, and turn back on again, but, I will have to eventually. But, WHY did that happen? Am I just the luckiest person ever or what? I am grateful to have it back, even if it ends up being just for a short while. But, I hope it lasts! This story is for people in the same boat who thought the screen would never come back on! It just MIGHT!
