Today one of our desktops won’t turn on at all. I didn’t even see the POST lights turning on (this is a Dell computer), so I assume that the PSU is dead. I’d have already called for support but since the box has been bought in the USA (part of a bundle of our GeneChip systems) I had to request a warranty transfer (notice that I don’t even know if there’s still a warranty!). I’ll probably call support tomorrow.
This has the unwanted side effect of slowing down my analysis work, since the workstation that “died” was used by a person who now is using my analysis station (which is not my work computer, by the way).
