there are times when you've just got to unplug the thing to turn it off...happens to the best of us..

have you checked to make sure that all the cables are stil lin place (don't see why they wouldn't be)...

you're probably still ok on your warranty...give the computer company a call and see if you can RMA the computer...they may also have some troubleshooting steps for you that might work

i think that means voided if you INTENTIONALLY expose it to more than 300V...and why would you do such a thing? though i could be wrong...check the the people you got the thing from and see what they say (i always find that when something is still under warranty...it's best to take advantage of that)
