That's extremely good news.

Unfortunately, my experience in repairing the samsung TV's is that you
*start* by replacing about AUS $50 worth of power supply components, then
you see what else failed.

Only one problem with that approach - isn't ethanol, er...
highly flammable?
i.e. if it gets spilt on the CPU, said CPU goes up in flames
along with the
methanol cooler and pretty much everything else in the system case...

Speaking of naffed up PCs, I was given a Celeron 400 box to
play with. The
CD ROM was (supposedly) dead. And rattling - uh-oh... Opened up
the drive
and found out that some in-DUH-vidual put a badly cracked CD in
there. The
CDROM was a 48x. Can you guess what happened to the CD when the
drive got up
to speed? That's right. It shattered. I spent 25 minutes
picking bits of CD
out of the mechanism. And then I powered it up again. And it came up to
speed and read a CD fine. Guess that says something about
Samsung CD drives
then... Unfortunately, the other Samsung 48x drive I was given
really was
dead - the spindle motor bearings seized up...
