    Re: Windows 10 --- Latest Tech Preview

    If I read the thing correctly, it won't affect Win 10 users or insiders testing Win 11 , but if you want to install/upgrade to the final Win 11 it will.

    Re: Windows 10 --- Latest Tech Preview

    I guess that's some relief, but it is confirming that this PC is probably due for an upgrade anyway.

    Re: Windows 10 --- Latest Tech Preview

    Another PITA.
    Not only do I have a dead Insider PC, the Windows 11 health report says my main PC won't run Win 11. It looks like I may be up for a dual upgrade (sigh).

    Re: Power supply question

    Thanks for the link Piroska. Unfortunately there is a big "SOLD OUT" stamp on the web page.

    Re: Power supply question

    This is all definitely getting above my pay grade. I'm going to make an executive decision to not worry about it. The munted PC was on the list to be replaced/scrapped so it has just shot to the top....

    Re: Power supply question

    Thanks for the feedback everyone. I guess my primary question is: how can I verify that my spare PSU is actually working? (I'm assuming the one with the melted wires is definitely munted :))

    Re: Power supply question

    Thanks for that. I've just about reached the limit of my electrical knowledge here, so this follow-up question may be silly:

    Power supply question

    If I have a naked PSU on the bench top and connect it to power, when I turn it on, should I see the fan move?

    Re: Windows 10 --- Latest Tech Preview

    Well that's the end of my Insider journey - for a while at least. There I was peacefully installing the latest cumulative update when the PC died in a cloud of smoke. I haven't had a chance to look...

    The email certainly didn't say anything specific. I use FireFox, but I just tried with Edge and got the same "password reset error" result. I tried abridging the url to what seemed like a reasonable...

    Thanks Jen. That is the number I was trying. It sort of confirms my belief that what I got was legit. I'll probably opt for Henderson.
