My Computer Is Dying!

This past week, my laptop screen started showing weird colors. Whites were tinged with yellow at first. Then gray started to go. I Googled, but did not find much helpful that related directly to MY problem. Then for a few days it was fine. This morning, the whole screen is weird colors. I can see fine, but it's been really hard on my eyes. So I tested a regular monitor and it works fine. That means the good news is my computer is not getting ready to crash any minute. The bad news is that when the screen goes, it costs $250 plus $50 shipping to get a new one. The laptop is 8 years old now. I will not be repairing it at this point, and certainly cannot get a new one.

So this is what my setup currently looks like:

Of course, it completely prevents us from using the dining room table for EATING, but you know, you gotta do what you gotta do, I guess.
