 A woman went out to a local computer store to buy a computer
 that her family wanted her to get so she could e-mail them.
 The sales person told her that they would send a technician
 with some pointers on using it.

 If she had any problems later all she had to do was call their
 "Technical Support"-- they would talk her through it over the
 phone or come back to her house to find the problem. The sales
 person asked her if she wanted to purchase a 2-year house
 warranty, to which she said yes.

 A few months went by and she was getting good at sending and
 receiving mail and checking web sites with only one call to
 tech support until one day . .

 She called tech support.

 SUPPORT: "Hello, technical support how can I help you"

 LADY: last night my computer started making a lot of hissing
       noise at me so I shut it down.  This morning when I
       turned it on the computer started hissing and cracking,
       then started smoking and a bad smell, then nothing.

 SUPPORT: I will have a technician come over first thing this
       morning just leave the computer exactly like it is so
       they can find the problem and fix it, or exchange it
       for another computer.  Give me your address and phone
       number, and the technician will be there just as soon
       as he can.

 When the technician got there, the lady showed him where the
 computer was and explained again what was happening.  This
 is what the technician found wrong.  Take a look at the
 pictures.. you won't believe your eyes!
