techno demons

By June 11, 2006General

The techno demons reared their ugly heads today at LifePoint. We had no projection/multimedia whatsoever. None. Zippo. For whatever reason, we couldn’t get any ouptut from the laptop to show up on our screens. This was the first time in nine months this happened. This was also the second week for using a new HP laptop with souped-up video capabilities.

Last week it worked fine — just as normal. Today … nothing! We rebooted, unplugged, replugged, twisted the plug … nothing! All the settings for dual monitors, extended desktops, etc., were set the way they should have been … nothing! Windows recognized two monitors were connected … nothing! MediaShout recognized two monitors were connected … nothing!

There were times I was wishing it was an Etch-a-Sketch so I could pick it up and shake it above my head. Come to think of it, I still might.
