Keikth found out what's wrong with my old lap top. The keyboard has malfunctioned, which means that I can no longer go on Chat at night til I get a new computer. This one totally refuses to do Chat. I'll miss ya, guys.
Judy, most laptops have a port for an external keyboard. You should be able to pick up a cheap keyboard at an office supply store for under $20 that hopefully will plug into your laptop. Good luck, I hope that helps.
Thanks, Beenie. That would work (I'd already tried it. That's why I think it's the keyboard.) But I need to get Judy to give up some portability to do that. I have an emergency request out to my son, the geek, for advice on getting a replacement laptop.
This is Judy. I've wanted an Apple for a long time now. I'm digging in my heels about portability. I want that, I want it to be white, and I'd like a big screen, but that's not critical. I am willing to own a reconditioned one.
