So everyone, I’m here once again to update you on my computer status. It turns out the graphics card went bad, which should have been easy to fix on a desktop, except that in my laptop the card is welded to the motherboard. That was smart planning on Gateway’s part. Anyway, I should be getting a new laptop, courtesy of my amazing parents. Not sure what kind it is yet, but it also does look like my pictures and other such items will be safe once I start transferring everything and such. Hooray!
Man, I really miss doing my photo project. It’ll pick back up soon!
