    You guys wouldn't happen to be in IT? I am and work in the data integration space with a specific software suite... just kicking it around since it would make the annual conferences more interesting and there quite a few bcbs people in the Vegas area in May-ish/June-ish timeframe. :grin:

    Yes, I'm in IT but the only National conference I attend is the Blue National Summit which I was at almost 2 months ago.

    We are going through a huge Informatica migration from AIX to Linux. I have tons of shells scripts to update and installs to do. They have restricted me from traveling more than 50 miles from our office. LOL

    Hi Bill !!!!!

    I really admire all you above average computer techs. I know enough to do some minor things on Desktops, even rebuilt a few of them with my boyfriend. When it comes to laptops other than swapping out hardrives or adding memory Im very shy.

    I have a well loved Alienware laptop that has a problem with one of the graphic cards that is either bad or the SLI cable is loose and it wont boot. It sits in a corner of my room , neglected. I just have not had the money to really have it looked at. Im scared to crack it open and take a look.

    IT people are inclined to use web forums extensively?

    Aaaah... I'm still a lowly tech so I don't go to summits just conferences my particular specialty - and have hard time getting those...

    That's the one I'm thinking of... we have a small AIX installation and now one on a Windows platform... PWX noob here.

    Don't be scared. Just crack that bad boy open. Lol. Make sure you have a container for all those screws.

    Hi, Anavidfan. If you had another graphics card to swap out and test, that would be a good place to start. I am quite squeamish when it comes to laptops, also. Other than swapping out disk drives, I have very little hardware experience.
    So glad to start the 4th of July weekend. Currently vaping HHV Just Peachy through one of the Herons this evening. Nice weather out on the patio. I hope everyone is having a good time.

    Most times, they solder the graphics cards onto the MB on purpose so it can't be serviced, and you have to replace the whole unit. Apple is the worst about stuff like this, but most laptop vendors do the same thing.

    Oh, and I'm in IT also. Mostly work on OS/390 mainframes. TSO, VSAM, CICS, COBOL, JCL, JobTrac, QMF, SPUFI, we got it all.

    Yeah, kicking it old school.
