<pause> I'll check. Oh hey, it wasn't plugged in! Thanks!

I have a friend, that over a decade ago, called me up and said he put his game CD in, but the monitor was still black...

I told him to turn on the monitor, and got a similar response to the above : )

He still jokes about it these days, along with a few other PC newbie stories... : )
