Just goes to show that it's good to be a "John of all trades". A quick run down to Comp USA. A mild upgrade to a better power supply. (I didn't realize it, but the old one was only 250 Watts. Now its got a 450 Watt Bad Boy in there.) I'm baaaack!

It's bad enough that I actually know what to do in these situations, and it still freaks me out when I don't have access to my machine. I can only imagine how bad it is for you non-technically-savvy folks out there. Take the machine to a repairman, wait 4 days until they can get a look at it. Find that the power-supply is shot. Get quoted a price that is roughly equivalent to the GDP of Paraguay, to purchase a new part, and get it installed. Get PC back from the shop two weeks later, and then try to catch up.

No thanks. I'll fix it my damnself.

I've got to be to work at 6:00 PM tonight, so I'm not sure if I'll be able to post more this afternoon. As long as the network is up when I get home, I promise to post like a crazy man.

I'm glad to hear your 'puter is working again. I have a Dell, which means if I want to upgrade/change any components I might as well toss this one out the window and order a new one. The make them so they are completely UN-upgradable (I know this from trying to upgrade my video card, which required a bigger power supply, which wouldn't fit into my case). I'm building my own computer next time...and don't think for a moment you aren't helping me Johnny-Oh!
