Number One Idiot

Yeah, that's me. I came to the conclusion that the motherboard on my computer wasn't allowing my monitor to work properly. Bingo! Guess who didn't intall the drivers for the motherboard? Yeah, me again. I've never done that before so I didn't know that it had to be done.

All done now. The monitor works beautifully. Pity I don't have any sound. I have run through the troubleshooter a few times, reinstalled the drivers for the sound card, checked the settings endlessly and the Device Manager says that the sound card is working properly and that there are no conflicts. I can't even get system sounds to run!

I don't want to tear too much hair out, it's getting a bit precious.

Call a friend to help.

Aaah. Hadn't thought of that. I have one possible change to make in the BIOS that may fix the problem. Not knowing where to look in the BIOS to start with filled me with fear and trepidation.

If I get it up and running tonight I'll let you know.
