No, I'm living here now. Like I said, I can order from Amazon & ship it in, but I don't know if I can wait. I really need to get the new video card in now b/c the entire computer is failing. I got the video card like 2 months ago, but when the guy tried to put it in, it wouldn't work. I didn't know that was going to be a problem & no one even explained to me that the MB may be too old.
If someone could walk me thru (via the phone) updating the bios settings (I got instructions via another forum) & can walk me thru putting in the new video card, then I can hold off on the new MB & order it from Amazon in the US. That's assuming I have the money right now. I won't do all of that myself. I'm not a true geek, so I'm too scared to do this kind of thing myself.
I need to give her model numbers in order to get pricing.
I don't know what model number that was for the $68 one. Don't assume it's going to be the same price. Everything here tech wise is more expensive, so I have to figure out if paying the extra shipping prices (Amazon will be free, but Mailbox Etc. won't be) from Miami to Panama is worth it. It shouldn't be more than an extra $20 b/c I have to pay duty since it will be more than $50, & then I have to pay for the extra shipping which I assume is another $5-10.
Then I have to figure out if getting a newer model is also worth it. Again, if no one can help me with the bios settings & they are going to charge me too much to do the bios & install the new video card (I'm scared about letting them do the bios settings), then it sounds more logical to get the entire MB changed, but again, if they have to order the MB in, then I won't be able to go in until probably Friday or Monday.
I have to run, I'm already late.
If you can help me, I really appreciate it. If not, I have to take the computer in tomorrow which is going to be a PAIN b/c I have no car & no way to transport it other than maybe a suitcase, but if someone can help me with the bios settings & video card, then I will only have to take it in when I get a new MB.
Just one other question...
Other than the MB, everything else should be up-to-date, correct? I bought a new power supply, memory & HD last year. I want to make sure everything else is up-to-date.
Thanks a ton & TTYL
