While cleaning behind my PC yesterday, I noticed something a little funny in the upper air vent that caught my eye. It looks like around my power supply, some parts on the top have melted down on top of the three copper colored coils inside. Yes, my beautiful $2,000 baby is hurting – so I had to backup and shut her down.

I contacted HP support, and they will be sending me a box to ship her back in – so I can get it fixed or replaced, and sent back here. I figured, if this disaster gives me anything it has given me something to write about so expect me to chronicle the entire experience with working with HP’s support team right here over the upcoming days.
