Technical Troubles

I'm afraid to report some technical woes as my graphics card has seemed to have died on me tonight - it fails to startup with one long beep followed by three short beeps of death. I have an old graphics card in place which should suffice for now until I get a new replacement in, so hopefully it won't disrupt my work flow too much.

Fortunately, I have my work backed up on an external drive, so I can work on other computers if necessary. But yes - take this as another healthy reminder to backup your work!

sorry to hear that, Leo :( Hope it doesn't trip you up too much - or for too long...

Hi,

I know you're horribly busy, but I'm just prompting you to complete the Student Survey 2011 - see link below! Many thanks!

Hey Leo what was your card model?

Hey Simon, the one that died was a Nvidia Geforce 8800 GT. Just hooked up my new card yesterday, a Nvidia Geforce GTX 560 Ti, which has brought my comp back to a stable state. Haven't had a chance to really test it yet, apart from some musings in Maya.
