After working for an amazing 5 hours my Dell roasted again, same issue as before. I guess the issue was not the motherboard, and perhaps deals with the power circuitry or USB ports? Dell is sending me an entirely new machine for the trouble of wasting quite a bit of my time, of course I won't be getting it for 10-15 days. Despite their efforts to make things right I won't be purchasing anything Dell related in the future. My last Dell laptop drank some Starbucks (my fault entirely) but it took three tedious round-trips to the repair depot to get it fixed. Humoursly enough there is an insert in the repaired laptops when they come back that states that the unit has undergone "rigorous testing".
