My desktop machine in my office (my own, not the provided one) also is mysteriously dead. I can turn it on, and the hard drive spins up, but nothing else. No actual hard-drive-seek sounds, no video signal, nothing. Moreover the front power button fails to power it off as it normally does. So I am suspicious of power supply problems, but confused that power is indeed being distributed around the parts -- the CDROM light goes on (but blinks) and the CPU fan runs. Very annoying. I hope there is no data loss.

Now it is time to go crash - I mean, sit in on - the "Portuguese Language & Culture" StuCo class. Whee.
