We have both on power strips and a backup supply because our area is prone to power outage. So we aren't sure what caused them both to go out a the
same time. We did discuss whether or not the backup was going batty. And we may go through and check the surge strips.
Mine had honestly been showing signs of issues for a while. It's not like it's young. We were working off 2009 rigs.
At any rate, we have his going now. Friend's discs got his drive going with Win 7 so the motherboard would talk to it and allow software
installation. Then we got the network adaptor on the motherboard working. So we know have one working computer.
Mine is going to take longer. We're putting a heavier duty processor in it, so it'll take longer to get the parts together. My husband can do all
the things he does at present on an overclocked dual core. I need a quad core in mine.
As for Op Sys, we'll wait to buy a new set until we see what Win 10 offers. I hear Win 8 is great if you have a laptop, tablet or phone, but it's
not so great for desktop and it takes up a ton of space for all of what Win 7 did.
