    We had the local computer guru come by and take a look at it. After some troubleshooting he's thinking the motherboard is bad. He tried pulling hard drives and boards to force it to show a different...

    The machine is plated as being setup for 220V 3 phase. I wasn't there when it was attempted but I understand it didn't power up. Monitor was dead. So it sounds like monitor or the battery for the...
