Last night, a high-powered electrical device was plugged into our power outlet outside of our house. This device apparently drew too much power and tripped a breaker but only then did I realize that my computer stuff was on the same circuit.
Now my computer won't boot. I have to suspect a motherboard/BIOS problem at this point. But it has drastically slowed down my progress on the Dexter project because it could be a week before I can get back up and running. I can use my laptop instead so progress can still be made but it will definitely be at a decreased speed.
