    VPN wise you could setup OpenVPN (quick search shows https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cbyizWepFVQ) and use it to connection machines to a local network. If you use ProSafe Firewalls you can also use their VPN Connection on laptops to connect on the go just like OpenVPN.

  2. Thanks for the advice with my questions! It gave me some things to look at and think about.

  3. My BESTEC ATX 250-12Z Rev D7R is kaput. What would you recommend as a replacement? Also, having looked at one of your videos for removing the CPU mine does not seem to budge after removing the 4 screws. Any comments?
    Thanks

  5. To remove a stuck on cpu, I remove the cpu and fan together. Be careful not to mess up the pins on the board. Put the cpu so it’s vertical, and on something soft,like a towel. Put a thin screwdriver between the cpu and fan and turn slowly. The grease will break apart. Then clean the cpu and fan with alcohol.

    While you have mentioned many times some of the things you do when you take a computer for repair, it would be nice if you could compile a checklist of these items to give us some idea of the steps you take preparing a computer for return to the customer.
