Not me, thankfully, but my PC.
Started Friday morning, unable to connect to the monitor so - since I had the day off to run my mum to an appointment - it was a quick trip to the IT repair shop, where of course it performed perfectly. Chap said it could have been a dodgy cable or the monitor itself, so try it back home and see. Back come, cabled up....worked perfectly. Whew! Shut it down and got on with things (ok, played the new Pokemon game, actually!).
Got up Saturday...guess what? Screen gets as far as the logo then quits. So going to try a new HDMI cable and if that doesn't solve it, it could be the monitor.
So until I can sort it, posts will be light here, nonexistant at 'Orphans..'.
Well, wasn't the cable! new cable, same thing. So back it'll go to the repair shop (along with the monitor this time) as soon as I've got time to take it.
Julia, take the whole caboodle back into the shop and let them do their elimination thing.
Julia, you need one of your techies within your circle to just come in and watch you, noting whatever. It's vastly better with someone right there watching how you do it. One of mine, who reads you, could go down and help, except he works.
Doesn't sound like the cables to me. If you are getting a logo then the monitor and cable are fine. If you reboot and it works OK up to there again then it is something in the startup. Monitor problems can happen at any stage. Test the monitor by plugging the HDMI cable into your TV and trying the PC there and try plugging the monitor into your DVD player.
Have you installed or upgraded something recently?
Get well soon.
"Julia, take the whole caboodle back into the shop and let them do their elimination thing."
That's what I ended up doing!
"...you need one of your techies within your circle to just come in ..."
All fixed now! 😊
"Have you installed or upgraded something recently?"
No, that's what was puzzling. It turned out to be some sort of connector that failed. Guy in the repairshop said he'd never seen it before fail like this. New connector and everything's back up...
"Get well soon."
Cheers! I've missed a proper keyboard and monitor. You can do a lot on a phone or tablet, but it takes a lot longer at my age.
