Tech : Just add the line LOAD NOSMOKE.COM† at the end of the CONFIG.SYS. Let me know how it goes.

1 hour later.
User : I need a new power supply.
Tech support : How did you come to that conclusion?
Tech support : (hush hush)
User : Well, I rang Microsoft and told him about what you said, and he started asking questions about the make of power supply.
Tech: Then what did he say?
User: He told me that my power supply isnít compatible with NOSMOKE.
