                                                          Welcome back My Dear Shoevians to The Other Shoe. First, I would like to extend my heartfelt “THANKS!” to Jason Kleppinger for his donation of $25.00 to my ‘Computer Repair Fund’. This is my very first donation and I am hoping that, with the publication of this article, I might reach more of you, My Dear Shoevians, and convince you that my need is great and genuine. In this second article, regarding the death of my writing computer, I am including images of the; desktop, Device Manager, Device Tab and others as evidence that (in fact) my laptop (writing) computer is damaged and does need repair.

Since I first wrote of this problem I have been able to get two (over the phone) estimates for the cost of the repair. The estimates (so far) range from $225.00 to $460.00. Of course, I am going to take the computer to the repair company that offers to do the work for the lowest estimate. So far, that is $2250.00, but that is “sight unseen” and could go up (slightly) more if there is more wrong with the laptop. My Dear Shoevians, I have run several diagnostic programs on this laptop and have come to the conclusion that only one problem exists. The ‘Display Adapter’ is not working. I have: rebooted, removed the battery and let computer stand (without power) for two hours then rebooted, booted up without the ‘Repeater-Extension’ module connected, and ‘Uninstalled/Reinstalled’ the display adapter twice. All to no avail. The image below shows the ‘Device Manager’ with the error indicated with the ‘Display Adapter’.

In order to see the image better, just click on the image and it will take you to a full screen display of the image, this is true for all the image in this article and all images on my blog(s). You can clearly see the Yellow Triangle with the black apostrophe indicating that the problem device is the ‘Display Adapter’. This would be a very small problem with a desktop computer. Just as easy as buying a new (or used on eBay) Graphics card and installing said card into the computer. However, this is a laptop computer and that means that the ‘Display Adapter’ is built into the motherboard. That means, in order to fix the problem, the motherboard must be replaced.

The image, above, shows the ‘Display Adapter’ tab in the ‘Device Manager’ showing that there is a problem with that device and Windows has not/will not start the device until the problem is resolved. As I have indicated I have gone through any/all trouble shooting for this problem I could find; one the Windows web site, Tom’s Hardware web site, and the nVidia web site, too. I am very much certain that the replacement of the motherboard will resolve the problem I am having, and return to me my writing laptop computer.

My Dear Shoevians, I deeply apologize for this… intrusion into your life… asking for help/assistance is not something that I enjoy or relish. Matter of fact, it really rubs me the wrong way and I work very hard to avoid these situations. However, this has become an unavoidable reality in my life. Again, I deeply apologize for writing and asking for your financial assistance in this matter.

Again, ‘THANK YOU JASON!!!” for your generous contribution of $25.00. With ONLY F I V E more contributions of $50 or more I will have the funds I so desperately need to pay for this much needed repair. I have a real and deep bound with this machine. Over the past seven years I have written; over 650 articles, TWO questions USED BY Bob Schieffer on ‘Face the Nation’ (to question Sen. Mitch McConnell and Speaker Rep. John Boehner), 200+ pages of ‘The Horror in Smithville’, 100+ pages of ‘The Adventures of Princess Nadia – The Healing Light’, newsletters, business cards, fliers and a brochure design (all for Hanning Web Wurx and The Other Shoe).

With your contribution(s) (via PayPal) just use enzomatrix@earthlink.net and Daniel Hanning. The repair company HB Computers will be the company making the repairs on my HP DV9500t CTO laptop computer. This laptop computer, when new, cost me $2,000.00 and it still works incredibly well (aside from the display adapter not working), and with this repair I am certain that it will serve me another five years and another 500+ articles plus two more books in the ‘The Horror in Smithville’ series and two more books in the ‘The Adventures of Princess Nadia’ series.

My Dear Shoevians,
I do hope that you consider the information I have shared, look at the desktop and device manager images, and PLEASE consider assisting me in this venture of repairing my (desperately needed) writing computer. I have priced new laptop computers and found that a laptop (17.3′ screen, Geforce Video Card, three USB ports, extender port [an HP QuickDock 2.0 Docking Station – which I OWN] and a full sized keyboard with number keypad) would cost me between $2,000.00 and $3,000.00. This, investment, of $225 – $350 is a fraction of that amount and well spent.

.

Again, please go to PayPal to make your donation to Daniel Hanning enzomatrix@earthlink.net to help me get up and writing and publishing again… soon. Thank you for your time and effort… THANK YOU for your consideration and kindness… THANK YOU for EVERYTHING you do to HELP!

.

As always, if you ‘Like’ and ‘Share’ this article, via your social media outlets, it will greatly increase the chances I meet my goal and obtain my working writing laptop… Again!

P.S. Dear Family, Friends, Facebook Friends, and Followers of The Other Shoe​;
BELOW is a scan of the receipt for my $50 payment for Diagnosis &/or Deposit towards REPAIR of my ‘Writing Computer’ with HB Computers in Huntington Beach.
.
I am still quite berfet of the FUNDS I NEED to PAY for said repairs… … but I just HAD to FIND OUT; IF it can be repaired, HOW MUCH it would COST to Repair, and WHAT is WRONG with this (eight year old) writing computer. My Dearest Family, Friends and Followers… Over the past FIVE YEARS I have written and PUBLISHED more than 650 articles at my FOUR blog locations. ALL these articles (along with one NOVEL 75% DONE and ANOTHER Novel 25% DONE)… I REALLY DO N E E D this computer to write and publish. Without this machine… my voice WILL fall SILENT.
.
ANY amount of help WILL H E L P! I AM sorry to have to ask for help… I am just unable to work… and this month I am BACK to my Oncologist…
.
PLEASE take a moment… and PLEASE consider lending me a HAND?
.
Thank you,
Danny Hanning​

                Welcome back My Dear Shoevians to The Other Shoe. My Dear Shoevians for the past several weeks I have struggled with increased constant pain. I have tried, very hard, to overcome this pain and keep to a regular writing and publishing schedule. My reasons for this is two-fold. First, I long to write… to publish… to create! Without my ability to work a job, to clock in and work a job… a career that I love… my writing is my solace. Second, My Dear Shoevians, is YOU! For the past four years I have written an published for you! I do not do it for money… which, due to my current situation… I regret deeply. I do not put ads on my blogs. I do not make money from your; reading, learning, entertainment.

.

Now, due to an unforeseen circumstance, I am without my computer. This computer has; my Word program, my Voice-to-Text (Dragon Speaking) program, my Animation program, my Publishing program, ALL of my 650+ articles and all of my passwords saved in memory. I have owned this laptop (HP DV 9500t CTO) computer since Christmas 2007. ALL of my best writing was done on this laptop computer. I know how it works, I know how to publish quickly and easily on this computer. Now, due to a mistake I made while panicking, the video card (built into the motherboard) is fried!

.

This laptop computer cost me (roughly) $2,000.00 eight years ago (this Christmas). Today, it will cost me about $400 to have it repaired. Another 17.5′ laptop computer; of equal power and ability, with NEW licensing for all the writing/editing/publishing/animation programs will cost me much more than having it repaired. You see, My Dear Shoevians, it is not just the cost of another laptop replacement. I can find that, at WalMart refurbished/clearance for $500-$600. However, then I have to purchase another; Word Processing program (WORD preferably… I know how to use Word… like, in my sleep), Speech-to-text program, Publisher program (for newsletters, fliers, business cards, and everything else I use and need), animation program (I am looking to replace/upgrade the ‘Sunday Funnies’ series with MY animations), Iolo System Mechanic Professional, Anti-Virus program, and ALL of the other programs I have and USE on this laptop computer.

All told, I would have to spend another $500-$600 on programs just to get another new laptop up to the quality and usability of my current laptop. Over the past ten days I have given this a great deal of thought, consideration and soul-searching. This is the best and cheapest course of action. Now, for the kicker!

My Dear Shoevians, I am in no financial position to purchase; a new laptop and all the software I need to produce and publish at the professional level I have for the past five years. My Dear Shoevians, it has been years since I have asked for any assistance. Any financial support whatsoever, and I am proud of that fact. I do not like/enjoy/relish asking anyone for any kind of help. It goes against my upbringing, against my belief(s)… and it hurts to ask… and hurts even MORE when I fail to garner much needed support.

However, without any assistance I will be unable to; write, publish, inform, entertain and share my views. This is, already, causing me grief and frustration. If you are a Facebook friend, you will have (likely) seen evidence of this in my posts. My writing and publishing is my creative outlet. It gives me center, it distracts me from my constant and growing levels of pain. Without it, I feel more pain and I sleep less and my sleep is fitful. I am in shambles. I am beside myself. I am without my center… without my creative outlet… without my reason for living.

I know that appears extreme… and I do not want to frighten anyone. I am not in a ‘dark place’ and not having hurtful thoughts. That is a reality, but it is getting more and more difficult to make it through each day. My Dear Shoevians, my need is genuine. This is not some pseudo-cry-for-help, I genuinely need financial assistance to get my writing/publishing laptop computer back up and running. I would be willing to sign an agreement to repay any funds! I could manage to pay back $50 a month, and not loose too much food… or medications.

My Dear Shoevians, I deeply apologize for coming to you and asking for help. I am willing to provide evidence that the computer is being repaired. An invoice for the repairs, pictures of the ‘Device Manager’ showing that the video adapter is not working. Screenshots of the desktop with the visual artifacts that prove it is the video card. I am willing to provide any/all evidence that all monies will go to the repair of the laptop and to NOTHING ELSE!

.

This computer has been at my side since Christmas 2007! EVERYTHING I have written for The Other Shoe(s) has been written on THIS computer! I have a creative-bond with this computer. Right now I am writing this article on a borrowed computer without Word or any word processor. I downloaded and installed “Open Office’ to create this article. I do not think I will/would be able to ‘barrow’ this computer often…

.

My Dear Shoevians, my back is against the wall! I am fearful of being without… it, and without my creative outlet.

.

PLEASE! My Dear Shoevians, PLEASE consider assisting me? I have TRIED and TRIED and TRIED to find a way other than what I ask here today!

.

Want to know how desperate I am? I am going to publish my PHONE NUMBER and EMAIL so that someone can help! It SACRES ME GREATLY to do so… but I just cannot think of a way to get the help I need… in a timely fashion.. without sharing this contact information. I am using PayPal to get donations, just use my email to donate enzomatrix@earthlink.net  ONCE I have obtained the help… I will remove this information HOPING that I have not invited disaster… already. PLEASE My Dear Shoevians… reach out and HELP? (714) 931-2436. enzomatrix@earthlink.net at PayPal for donations. THANK YOU!

.

PLEASE HELP ME?

.

Thank you!
