I excused myself to my desk, but after a few minutes of over-hearing their homespun solutions, I decided that I would go see if I could help (before they tried pouring robitussin on it). I checked the cables on the back and noticed that the computer was unplugged. Being a computer genius, I plugged it in. Amazingly, my stroke of brilliance saved the computer that had "blown up." I am now considered (and this is not a joke) as the computer wiz of my office.
The funny thing is that even after I plugged it in, they were still convinced that something else must have been wrong with the computer. One person actually thought that the computer unplugged itself or something, and said: "I think computers need to be unplugged and plugged back in every 30 days or something."
