So about 10 minutes after scanning this little guy and some friends (for tomorrow) the stationary PC… died! The one hooked up to the scanner! It’s like someone chopped my arm off (feeling a bit dramatic) I tried the usual tricks… basically opening it up dusting off the fans and well everything else… but it didn’t help, instead it still made the 9 beeps indicating we just may need a new motherboard… sigh! Although I must admit I love opening up computers and diving in, this time I don’t know enough and concede to my tech friend! Wish me luck!
