[PLUG] Dead PC solution

OK, the verdict is: at least 4 bad capacitors in the power supply caused 
it to flake out and fry the motherboard.

I noticed some odd behavior between using the known good supply and the 
stock supply, so I pulled the stock supply and opened it up.  It's bad 
for sure, but since the MB doesn't work even with the known good supply...

"Microsoft Tax" = the additional hardware & yearly fees for the add-on
software required to protect Windows from its own poorly designed and
implemented self, while the overhead incidentally flattens Moore's Law.
