New Computer Blues

Thursday I brought home a new desktop and monitor. Between my son, daughter, and myself it is now hooked up and running. It has a different system from the old computer, so I am now relearning basics. In fact, I've spent the entire evening relearning.

It seems I have a lot to relearn.

Worse, I discovered that the new monitor, so highly recommended as the latest and greatest by the salesperson, does not have built in speakers. He didn't mention this fact to me. Truth be told, I didn't ask either, as I simply assumed it would be the same as my old monitor. Consequently, I am now soundless.

I don't want to invest more money than I already have, so I'm pretty sure that this weekend the monitor will be returned for a good old fashioned one.

With speakers.

I know how frustrating it can be to have to re-learn computer techniques when you have got to grips with them already! Good luck with the new hardware.

I'm pretty sure there are some "cheapo" speakers out there, because mine sure sound like they are!! :-)

There are definitely cheapo speakers to hook up but I prefer the built-in ones Hope you get things going this week-end. What system did you get? I'm about fed up with Vista!
