It’s an all-too-common occurrence: the computer won’t work. We push, prod, shake, pound, twist, turn, and finally dismantle it to no avail. Then we fuss, fume, spit and scream. We read and re-read the warranty, call the manufacturer, and then call our local geek. Then, we discover it wasn’t plugged into the electrical outlet. It would have worked fine if the most vital connection of all had been made.
