Late night, deep slumber. The phone rings—never a good sign. “Hello?” “Hi...can you help? My computer’s dead!” A relative calling from a thousand miles away, in a panic. “What’s the problem?” “Well, it won’t boot. All I get is this message on my screen...”

An experienced tech guy has been on-site, working on the computer all day. It’s still not fixed. He calls for help.
