I have been trying to get a little more time out of this tired ole Vista-running computer, but it might be time to upgrade. Depends on what doc finds. I am hoping that I can cannibalize the old one for pieces and parts for the new one (if I have to buy a new one). That way I can get just a basic tower and add the enhancements from the old one.
And so, I wait.
UPDATE 3/10/15: Just as I suspected, it is the power supply. But because this is one of the slimline models, the computer doctor doesn't keep this model in stock and has to order it. I'll have the desktop back next week. At least now I know time with this desktop is more limited than I thought and I'll have to get crackin' on figuring out what software I have will need to be upgraded so it can run on a different platform.
