Scott: Thank you for that idea. I will go to the Dell web site for
Colombia again and see if they offer those reconditioned systems down
here. The other night, my wife indicated that I should take her up on
this, while she is in a good mood.  :-)   As I just wrote to Toby,
this morning, I went to a place where they may be able to fix the
mainboard in this box. I plan to take it there, on the 5th of January,
to see if it can be fixed. If not, I will probably buy something like
Mark (MHR) suggested last week (bare bones box from TigerDirect.com),
but get it here, because ordering from the states is a PITA and if I
do, there's no warranty down here and I am out of luck, if there's a
problem. Due to some problem at OpenDNS.com I haven't been able to get
to the Dell Support Forum since this came up last week. Lots to like
about Dell stuff, but the fact that they (and other manufacturers) use
some proprietary components (tower, power supply and mainboard) is a
"minus" if one needs to buy a replacement. Happy Holidays! Lanny
