Well a couple of days ago I decided to try out Minecraft, so I bought one of those prepaid cards for it. After a few minutes of playing I found out my graphics card was on the verge of dying (well it is 5 or 6 years old
). Long story short, the display on my computer is now acting up. It won't even load my desktop or start menu. So now I'm working (and playing Minecraft) on my laptop, which has a more recent graphics card. While at first I believed Minecraft may have caused the problems, after some thought it may have just been normal wear and tear that destroyed by graphics card.
Luckily my bro is a computer expert and he believes my main rig needs a complete overhaul. Most of the stuff inside it needs to be upgraded/replaced (since we haven't done so since I got the machine 5 years ago). I'll also need to find my Windows 7 CD and serial again. Hopefully my hard drives won't have to be wiped.
In Minecraft so far I've only gone into creation mode, but sooner or later I'll have to try out survival mode. It looks like fun making tools, but I fear the monsters.
