Thanks for that John. That looks like it. Although from what the techies
I have spoken to have said, it is a bit more serious than what that
article says. They were saying that the whole unit is basically rat-sh*t
afterwards.
 
They stressed that the hard-drives went as well, so make sure backups
were pretty frequent.
 
I don't know, mabey if the techs were actually from Dell, they would be
a bit more responsive.......lol
 
Chris

        Hi Chris,
        
        Personally, if my office and everyone in it was conceivably in
peril of
        imminent destruction by raging inferno I don't think I'd let my
account
        rep 'gloss over' the problem.
        
        Do you not like your co-workers?  :)
        
        Take care,
        
        Cael
