    DAN READ THIS ON YOU iPhone!!!

    It needs a power supply. It seems a capacitator has blown in it.

    BTW were you driving around the GC with an Eag 13 number plate?

    I have seen one explode in an X-ray tube, very messy, very stinky. Actually come to think of it I can't remember if it a capacitator or not. Probably is.

    The PSU is completely dead, less life in there than a party at the popes house

    i got it to windows the previous day, which led me to believe it was the cap. The **** thing is it is a dell so a replacement Powersupply will be either A) hard to get or b) easier to get if you go to a local office/uni/school and see if they have any dead comps around.

    Yeah its cool, I thinka standard ATX should fit it, the hope is the re-use centre has one tomorrow so I can throw that in and it should be ok. Otherwise I will have to order one online.

    It started trying to spark up, we got an amber flashing light, but that was it. I flicked it to 115 instead of 240 and then back without plugging it in, but that seems to have killed the last dying bit of activity it had
