Rumors of my explosion have been greatly exaggerated

So last night: computer explodes, Andres pulls out the laptop and finds thousands of other people complaining of the same symptoms -- loud pop, black screen, computer won't turn on -- and concludes it must have been the power supply. Much grousing about warranty and whether the hard drives will have been damaged and so forth.

Right before we go to bed, I wonder "Say, did you ever try turning it back on?"

And it works perfectly.
