Computer woes

Earlier this week, our internet went out. The culprit seems to have been our Linksys router rather than the actual internet connection; Kate now has it working with her computer through the router, so it *seems* that all is back to normal.

Unfortunately, now my computer absolutely refuses to turn on.

-sigh-

Feudalism: Serf & Turf

(Doesn't seem to be the battery, doesn't seem to be capacitor plague, didn't seem to be having any suspicious/unexplainable symptoms before now, etc. It was shut down earlier this week while troubleshooting the internet connection, was left off for a few days, and now it won't turn on.)

ETA: Kate took it in to Best Buy for "free" diagnostics, and the tech there claims the motherboard is hosed. Oh, joy.
