Unhappy Temp Gauge Not Working

This is a strange one.
I've had my 1500 now for over five years. When I bought it, the only thing that didnt work was the temperature gauge. The motor had very low mileage 20k miles only. I always check my motor and various people gave me all kinds of theories which usually meant lengthy repairs, so i didnt really bother to fix it. My computer gave up on me end of last year, so while I waited for my new computer, i borrowed one from a friend to keep me on the road. When I plugged in the borrowed computer, to my suprize, and for the first time ever, the temp gauge started to work. Wow, I thought it must have been a malfunction with my old computer.
About a week after using the truck all of sudden the gauge slowly started to not reach maximum temperature, until a few days after didnt come up at all.
I decided it must still be a computer problem so i waited for my new one.

When I recieved and plugged in the new computer, no temp gauge ???

So, if anyone can give me any ideas I would appreciate it.
