LUZR4LIFE Posted April 30, 2008 Share Posted April 30, 2008 (edited) FOUND HEREI used to work in a computer store and one day we had a gentleman call in with a smoking power supply. The service rep was having a bit of trouble convincing this guy that he had a hardware problem.Service Rep: Sir, something has burned within your power supply.Customer: I bet that there is some command that I can put into...Service Rep: There is nothing that software can do to help you with...Customer: I know that there is something that I can put in... some command... maybe it should go into the CONFIG.SYS.[After a few minutes of going round and round like this]Service Rep: Okay, I am not supposed to tell anyone this but there is a hidden command in some versions of DOS that you can use. I want you to edit your AUTOEXEC.BAT and add the last line as C:\DOS\NOSMOKE and reboot your computer.[Customer does this]Customer: It is still smoking.Service Rep: I guess you'll need to call Microsoft and ask them for a patch for the NOSMOKE.EXE.[The customer then hung up. We thought that we had heard the last of this guy but NO... he calls back four hours later]Service Rep: Hello Sir, how is your computer?Customer: I called Microsoft and they said that my power supply is incompatible with their NOSMOKE.EXE and that I need to get a new one. I was wondering when I can have that done and how much it will cost.. Edited April 30, 2008 by LUZR4LIFE Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
