I am now describing the internals of the computer to him to help identify the motherboard and riser board, and the user says "Hang on, I don't want to drip wax into the computer."
Me: "I'm sorry, did you say 'wax'?"
Befuddled User: "Yeah. I'm using a candle to light the inside of the case."
Me: "Why are you using a candle?"
Befuddled User: "Because the power is out."
Me: (Face-palm smack) "Did it not occur to you that you would need power to use the computer?"
Befuddled User: "Sure. But it has a battery in it."
And indeed it does. A WATCH BATTERY. a battery just strong enough to help the computer not forget the date and time when turned off and unplugged. And even so, these normally need to be replaced about once a year or the computer forgets what day it is.
I explain this to the user, but he doesn't want any part of it. He wants the computer to work during a power outage off of a small watch battery.
