The guy who has built all my PCs (I do not do it for the reason you highlight 
- if it does not work I do not have the experience or diagnostic facilities 
to find the faulty part - I am told it is often a case of replacing the parts 
to isolate the fault).

If you wish you can e-mail me off the list I can give you his telephone
