This is the computer at my work that runs our big light-board sign. I have personally resurrected it twice. The latest, less severe revival involved replacing the power supply. But we didn't have the correct one for this machine. The one on the table is able to run the computer, but the cable is too short to mount it in case. Even better, the computer can't be turned off, as the power switch is no longer hooked up. For a moment I thought it couldn't be turned on, either, but pushing the reset button brings it back to life. A new readerboard controller might cost several thousand dollars, so we'll just keep using this one.
