Adventures in re-activating Windows XP Pro after motherboard failure

A couple of weeks ago my workstation wouldn't turn on. First I swapped out power supplies, but that only proved to be part of the problem. Turns out my motherboard in my 2-1/2 year-old Dell Dimension 4200 had blown up, too. I went off to...

Ahem. Another new Tellus site - StarFurniture.com
