Okay, turn it off and mark it out of order, I'll look at it tonight.

I jiggled the cables inside and started it up and it worked okay.

Might be worth taping the SATA connectors in the machines. They don't stay in as well as the old IDE ones used to.

that's what happened the last time this happened a week or so ago - just opened the boxes (oak and the middle one), checked all the connections were firmly in then they decided to boot up no problem after.

I 'fixed' the left hand computer by unplugging and replugging the SATA cables.

Think we'd better tape these on.

Some computer manufactures use a blob of hot glue to fix cables in place. Do we have a hot glue gun?
