OMGoddess!!! Sunday when I got home from work, my computer had shut down and when I pushed the power button, nothing happened!!! It wouldn't turn back on!!!! Okay Dianne......breathe....LOL. Remembered I had my old computer in the closet....switched out the tower and spent last night and tonight trying to figure out why my DVD drive wouldn't work (had to grab a wire from my third oldest computer that I only keep for spare parts)....Got DVD drive working tonight, and then could install the software for my Internet access....It's been a long HARD 2 1/2 days without my Sparkpeople! And I was totally LOST without my food tracker!

But I have made it back from the depths of "no internet-land", safe and sound.....now I just have to figure out if it was just the power supply that went on my other computer, or if the whole motherboard went down...le sigh! Hopefully it is just the power supply, because if it is the motherboard, I might as well just buy a new laptop and junk these old desktop models...LOL

    Actually, I think I have the whole computer issue figured out now. I got the first tower working again, and about a week later, the computer would boot up, but the monitor wouldn't come up. Figured out that the integrated (on the motherboard, not a separate card) video card had gone out. Took the video card out of my older computer, put it in the newer one, and WHA_LA! Monitor came up! Talked to a computer tech friend of mine and he said the video card going out could have caused the power problem since it is on the motherboard and uses the same chipset...haven't had any problems in the ast 2 weeks! The angel is happy as a clam!! emoticon

    I am glad you figured out your PC. The food tracker is so important. I don't know what kind of cell phone you have, but androids and other smart phones can get the food tracker application. So when you are on the road on your lunch break, you already can put everything on your mobil food-tracker. I am using my android most of the time, too.
