Yesterday, after doing some online trouble shooting, we took it to the Geeks. The processor, the likely culprit, slowly "frying", even they can't fix. They would have to send it out. I decided to buy an external hard drive, download everything and load it into the little Toshiba I bought last December before I went to Thailand.
I'm very grateful to that little machine-now. I've been able to blog somewhat over these last few weeks, without the resources encapsulated in the Compac. The mini-Toshiba glitches with an over-sensitive finger pad; I couldn't get my email because of connection problems. It doesn't show my pictures in a comfortably large format. But, it saved me from making a hasty decision on my long term replacement and contains a 140 gigabyte hard drive.
Two hours on the phone with AT&T and my connection problems are solved. Hey, I'm back in business.
