Never Go To Bed Angry

Some wise advice when I got married was never go to bed angry. You should always sort out a problem before hitting the sack.

I reckon that it just about applies to anything. Take for instance my new monitor. I cannot set the refresh rate for it through Windows and can't upgrade the driver. Talk about infuriating. And not a good thing to try and fix for 45 minutes before going to bed. All I can think about is that stinking, damn machine in the study.

Putting my fist through the screen may finish the argument but it certainly won't solve anything.

I know how you feel, and you know so much more about these things than I! It is sooo frustrating when we want to get things working, and it should be simple to accomplish, but it sometimes seems we are trying too hard. I hope you work it out soon.

I worked out that the motherboard was the problem - I hadn't installed the drivers!! After doing this is was dead easy to install the monitor driver but I still can't get the sound to work. Have been mucking about with that for the last hour of my life.
