Default Re: Came home to dead dedicated security rig...what now?

I would probably buy some lexan at Lowes and build an enclosure over and around the case to help shed any water that may be dripping onto it... I would also look into having a dehumidifier in the area if it's mostly a sealed building... Moisture does not play nice with PCB...

If you're running Windows 10 (Version 1607) and added your Microsoft account and linked it to the digital license on your device, you can use the Activation troubleshooter to reactivate Windows."

Thank you Carnage! You people sure are helpful here!

I have been a bit overwhelmed with other projects at our ranch and hope to complete the build in the next couple of days.

I hope to post pics and results of the new build.

Have a great day everyone!
