This is the route I will take.  I have tried to boot it 6 or 7 times and
I will NOT power it up again.  My external backup drive just got here
Friday too!  I was a day late.  :(  I have found a few places with flat
rates at $700 or so.  I will keep looking.  Anyone have a Dell 8600? 
Will you take the hard drive out and jiggle it?  I want to know it it
rattles.  Just for peace of mind.  I hope it rattles.

If anyone does not have backups, go do it now.  THIS SUCKS.  I hve Dell
complete care, so laptop replacement is free, but not the data.
