Death of a PC Power Supply

Three power failures last night… most likely due to wind and it was quite windy. Red flag warning and all. I relaxed… waited… the whole ordeal only lasted maybe 15 minutes… One of my pc’s has been victimed and has destroyed a power supply… good thing I have redundancy… and i’m afraid a 350w power supply will be replaced with a 400w that has been used as nothing more than a temp power supply to trouble shoot other computers. I think perhaps this machine was a little pissed off at me. I actually ran the windows 8 compatibility update wizard to see how I stand with my hardware on the media center pc. It said I would need software to watch dvd’s… so I got concerned and decided to upgrade the HP touchsmart tm2 instead. I’ll reserve comment. It hasn’t crashed yet. All of the firefox plugins had to be reinstalled. Chrome survived with no issues whatsoever.
