I fixed the issue that I was having with my laptop, all by myself even, thank you very much. I didn't think it was really broken, and I was right. :)
The laptop has an NVIDIA card, which has a setting called "Digital Vibrance." I set that at its lowest setting, and voila! It worked! Yay! Now I'm back to loving my laptop. Last night I was wishing that I would've stuck with Dell, but I'm happy with this HP. Yay! It's an awesome laptop.
I'm starting my Christmas shopping this week and I'm really looking forward to going. I also have to do some birthday shopping for Cain, who turns 19 in SIX days. Seriously, I'm NOT old enough to have kids this old. *sigh*
We watched "Get Smart" tonight and I have to say, it was VERY funny. If you haven't rented it yet, you might want to give that a go.
