This morning we drove to Seneca AGAIN, bringing my computer to Staples for help. Their computer person got the keyboard to work some, after attaching an external keyboard, then it went crazy like before. I will need to order another laptop keyboard (it’ll take 5 days) so we need to wait until we’re at Yemassee, SC. The motherboard may also be affected.
On our way home I texted Justin for advice. Once we got back to our RV he helped us get to a diagnostic screen. We ran the tests, the motherboard seems fine. John noted we could buy an external keyboard (for the meantime) from Goodwill. So-ANOTHER trip to Seneca. Bonus: we found a pair of jeans for me there too.
At home I excitedly plugged in the keyboard. Dang-it wouldn’t recognize the external keyboard until I’d wrangled it into Windows, then it soon started responding to random input. Must be more problems than the keyboard. Bummer.
Since the diagnosis could involve more than a couple days we decided to wait until we’re at Yemassee. So I get to struggle on John’s computer until then. Thus you won’t see much blogging for awhile.
