I think I'll unplug it all and drag it into Best Buy tomorrow. I hope to God I don't have to buy a new box. I am very sad.........

It's on a power strip. The monitor, mouse and keyboard all work. I can't get the 'box' to turn on.

I'm logging off and heading for him. There is a member here who knows how to get hold of me. Can you relay any info for me? Thanks

Try unplugging it for like ten minutes, plug it back in and try to turn it on. The box is basically the computer or CPU, central processing unit.

Winds, warm up your arms like a wrestler, throw it as hard as you can out in the yard, and unload on it. I mean with lots of bullets. Get the barrel HOT. I got one I'm gonna do that with, just waiting on nicer weather.
