A little while ago our computer started turning off randomly by itself, and then wouldn't power up at all. I was justifiably peeved because the warranty on this PC had literally expired one week prior to the start of the problem. Dell's support center was not helpful, but no surprise there. I really just wanted them to confirm what I (and my computer-genius brother Adam) suspected was the problem. Anyway, I did some research and some asking around, and decided that I was going to fix my own computer. Kind of a big deal for me. Adam recommended NewEgg.com as a great place to order computer parts, and I found what I needed: a new power supply unit. (Apparently those things go bad all the time. You would think one would last more than a year. But whatever, Dell.) So I ordered the unit, and today it arrived.
Isn't it beautiful?
