And - btw - remember - just because it powers it up does not mean it
is adequate for full power draw..  Much like a pc power supply...
Your machine may work just fine runnig a web browser and word
processor, but once one of your kids (or you) start up a game that
cranks up the power draw from your video card, etc - your machine may
lock up..  The hdhrs are no different..
