      It looks like it was a dodgy power supply.   I thought I had dropped lucky as a initial search on the net told me that Corsair AX 850 psu's had a ten year warranty. Checked back through my paperwork and I bought the AX in July 2011. Saw loads of articles reviewing the AX, that is odd I thought why are folks writing reviews about a 2010 psu. Ha it seems Corsair brought out a AX Titanium last year which does have a ten year warranty. However mine is a AX Gold which only had a seven year warranty. So no replacement free for me then. Luckily for me I still have my original 2007 self built super pc which has a Corsair HX 520 psu in it and is still running. So I swapped it with the dodgy 850 and lo an behold I have a properly working pc again. Now I just have to work out which Corsair psu to buy to replace the 850. 😎

      Hmmm $300 = £221.51 today. Over here in the UK you might get a crappy ten year old business class laptop but you certainly will not get anything halfway decent.  Electrical stuff has always been loads cheaper in the USA than over here. 😎

      Yeah well even correcting my mistake and entering the correct commands does not magically make a root .bashrc appear.  Does a  bog standard fresh install of Arch even have a root .bashrc ?     🤔
