Typically I leave my PC on all of the time, but I unplugged it before I left town thinking that would protect it help incase there was a lightning storm or power outage. I also still prefer Dell Desktops, they are worse products out there and Dell is highly durable, they can run for a week non-stop and still act like a high class computer. Would I need to replace the whole power supply? The external drive was powered by an external power supply which sends voltage into the USB cord, even when off bad design?
