Update - Server Repaired
« on: June 23, 2009, 07:23:00 AM »
My server in Japan is down for a bit as the box is undergoing repairs (not that anyone here ever went in there anyway  :lol: ) I came home from a jog on Friday night and the server was unresponsive. I restarted it and flames started coming out of the motherboard on one particular chip. The flame was only as big as a lighter flame but that was effectively the funeral lights.

It was 10 months old and still under warranty so it's currently in the shop getting patched up. I expect it'll require a new mobo at the very least. Probably best to replace the mobo and case by the looks of it. It's one of those barebones mini things that you patch up yourself.

After 2 weeks, the server PC is still not ready to pick up. I popped in last week for an update and they've sent it somewhere (the original manufacturer's no doubt).

It's back and running as the sig images present.

A new motherboard and power supply unit. The only original thing I got back were the cables, cd, and casing.
