4. Got an old new or a new old computer

My old pc's poor mother(board) died and the pc guy told me it was going to be hard and expensive to find a replacement. So we both suggested to me a used pc which he sells all the time. Cost me $139 & tax, and he put my old tower in the window for somebody else to buy cheap & build up.

I got it 3 weeks ago and just yesterday had the fading problem. He told me to bring it in (still under warranty) and I see where he went to this website: http://www.dell.com/support/drivers/us/en/19/ServiceTag/BRKQQ91

I know he replaced at least one driver and I got the thing back again today.

Since I'm 74, I see no sense in spending a lot on a computer that won't last longer than me. If I get 2-3 years out of this and have to get another one for $100 or so, it should do me fine till I get put in an urn (not to mention 12/21 and the Aztecs ) . This 17" monitor I'm using is a Dell and cost $25 - 3 years now...

Thank you and REP for trying to help. I appreciate it.
