I thought graphic cards are only for high resolution games.I don't think my computer has one... oh well, what do I know I used to rely heavily on my computer too but thanks to tablets I only turn on my PC when I need to print or store some huge file. I hope your computer gets fixed up soon.

Internet is much cheaper than some phone plans! Especially through skype it should be a good help for that.

ops.. that is really a very bad news ....but as you have got the mobile so you are not completely disconnected from the world.. as you are already back in here.. by the way what the knowledge I have .. I do not think it's the problem of a graphic card.. that your computer is completely out of order.. may be you are right.. as I do not have a good knowledge about it.. hope your problem will be solved soon.. and you will be able to connect back to the world in the way you want.

Well actualy the problem was the graphic card. If your computer cant start and instead of one bib sound makes three when open then its the grafic card. But everything ok now. So thanks ;)

Hi, your feeling of disconnected from the world is right. I also feel very irritating when my computer is not working. I don't have mobile with internet facility. I like to use mobile only for receiving and making calls and nothing else. I ha one mobile with all the facilities but I gave it to my wife and I purchased simple mobile. phone.

I perfectly understand what you mean. I too have become used to staying connected with the world through the computer world and will not able to stay away even for a day. Hopefully I have a good system working and also a good technician who attends to my needs instantly I call him.

I can really relate to how you're feeling. I work online and if my computer breaks down, I will not be able to earn anything and that would be a shame. I hope you get your computer fixed asap. Having to myLot on a mobile phone is not a preferable method.

Hi friend, sad to hear about this. Try your maximum to repair your pc soon, it is really hard to live a life without pc in this modern days. As you mentioned you had mobile phone and accessing mylot from it, surely it will be a good alternate for you

It's really annoying if your desktop or laptop down. You will felt away from the universe and feeling alone. But in your case not totally away because you can still access the web through your mobile. It happened to me many time before, the worst thing I don't have mobile that capable to access on the web.

Well, start by telling you that I'm sorry for the fact that your computer is broken! However, I know that you, although newbie, you are now already become like me, a Mylot-addicted! I am very happy when I see your publication on the site. I am very happy to have befriended with you. Known among other things, that we almost share the same interests.

I also feel that way when there is no internet connection at home. I had my computer broke last year and good thing I still have my laptop. But sometimes it is the internet connection that is giving me the problem. And...ohhh, I miss a lot of things.

Its good that myLot can be used on a mobile phone. I know what being disconnected from the world is like, it is not fun at all.

I am glad you have your phone that you can use, I know it's not quite the same thing but at least you can still come here! =) I would much rather have my computer but my phone works to let me be here when I am out and about which I am grateful for.
