Dell fixes defective servers


— 11:36 PM on January 22, 2004

Dell is seeking out buyers of PowerEdge 1650 rack servers it shipped between January and early May of last year, after discovering a defect causing the systems to overheat, emit smoke, and shut down. Although Dell was coy with the details of the responsible party or how many customers were affected, the company did reveal that the fault was an overheated inductor on the internally-designed motherboard.

So now we know what he was really smoking.
