There Oughta Be A Law
Pixy's Law of Duplicity
If the problem resists all your attempts at isolation, consider that you may have two problems.
Pixy's Law of Maintenance
If all logical methods of repair have failed to solve the problem, find two interchangeable parts and interchange them.
Pixy's Law of Human/Computer Interaction
You can press escape all you like, but it won't do anything if the keyboard's not plugged in.
Pixy's Law of Customisation
If you work with computers long enough, sooner or later you will find yourself adjusting a delicate and expensive piece of equipment with a pair of wire cutters.

Actually, working on one of the computers at school, we used laws one and two. Fixed the problem.
I was about to use law 4 as well. It got off lucky.

If a particular piece of electronics isn't working, make sure it's plugged into everything else.
