Problems again with my desktop
I have tried disconnecting the ext hard disc before powering up the machine. Doesn't always work. This time I tried something more drastic. I removed the power cord if the LED light stayed on. I didn't know this would gave me hell moments later when I reconnected the power cord and turned it on. The PC fan was howling at top speed. I thought my lousy Dell had reincarnated itself into this Acer. I quickly powered it down. When I powered it up again, the bios date settings was messed up. Google and Adobe security certificates became invalid and in a hurry I missed changing the year and for the next few hours wondering what was wrong. The problem finally went away when I flipped the year from 2009 to 2011.
I think this PC is living its last days. Might need another visit from the tech guy. The three year warranty will expire in early May this year.
