    G540's schematic diagrams are informative, and meant to confront your issue. AC goes to the power supply, which is marked at the rear, by the wire screw downs. Know your connections before you charge...

    YES! You can. When you're reinstalling Bobcad, it'll prompt you with a code. Simply call Bobcad, relay that code, and they'll supply you w/ another, secondary code to activate your software. It's...

    Correction

    Oops! Y'all are right, the proper number is 565 metric gigatons of burnt CO2, for another 2 degrees centigrade worth of worldwide temperature.
