This is the fourth computer that I ordered from Cyberpower. I was very disappointed in not only the fact that the computer was DOA, but also in the fact that the customer service people were like "oh well" The funny thing is that according to my order status, the quality control check was skipped. Of course, the customer service guy was like, "uh...don't know why that does not show anything there..." And my computer shows up DEAD...Now I get to wait another 3 weeks for the thing to get fixed. Nice Job CP

Finally got an update. Somehow, even though the computer went through the "quality control" checks, both the power supply and the motherboard were bad. Of course, it took them 9 days to figure this out. I guess the UPS driver must have opened the box and used the computer for some serious gaming or something in order for both of these components to have gone bad in shipping.

Yeah yo know it..

UPS has gremlins in there planes and truck..  They never take the time to clean or eradicate them,  so in the end they do get in..
This is one captured here.

CP's automated assembly line during the day.. Errors happen only when there batteries run down and they require a hard reboot wiping all of what they did from there memory, "hence the Error happens"

This is CP after Hours..

Hope this sheds some light on matters.

You need to do your own QC when you get the computer and do it FIRST before powering up your computer.  I did and still missed an unconnected cable.  Not my fault for missing since there are SO MANY cables!

True...However, I do not think that looking for any loose connection would have diagnosed a bad power supply and motherboard...out of the box.

True. What brand of power supply did you get? If you say XtremeGear or CyberPower brand then that should not be much of a surprise....

i agree with checking ALL of your cables before powering the computer on.. even if u dont have a CLUE what the cables do, just make sure they are firmly connected, are not getting crimped from a tight fit, and makes sure all of your memory sticks are securely fastened in without wiggle room.. really nothing should wiggle lol..  UPS is bad bad bad, oh and they are bad!
