My poor Dell Inspiron 8100 notebook died on me again today. The same thing happened back in April, 2006. Like before, the power supply unit burned out. It survived just shy of 6 years. Before the PSU died, I was installing Windows XP inside of CentOS 5 with VMWare.

I think I will get it repaired again after Tet. It still has a couple years to go before I will give up on it 🙂
