Yeppers, that little puppy just went and wouldn’t boot up for me. I’m thinking it’s the video card. So, for the next couple of weeks, I think I’ll take it apart, or go over to the Gateway website and log in, and find just what’s in there. And when I do, I’ll start the quest for replacement parts.
Aren’t you jealous?
I pulled out the old Dell, which is newer than the old Gateway (got the Gateway in July, 1999), and am setting it up right now. Hope to get the three cameras back up and running. And maybe I’ll be able to get the remote working on the roof cam. I ordered a serial to USB adapter this morning off of eBay.
One of the problems fixing the Gateway, is the operating system is Windows 98SE. I want to keep that system because I can run my DOS games on it. Not that I use them all that much. *lol* But, dammit, they’re mine and I don’t want to lose them.
We did take a break, went to see Indiana Jones and the Crystal Skull. We enjoyed it. I bought tickets a couple of years ago through AAA and we used those. We’re going out to an early dinner, probably around 3:30 or 4:00 this afternoon.
Well, back to work. So much stuff to re-install and update on the old Dell. Not what I want to be doing. I’d rather be reading a book by the pool.
