Many moons ago I ran a national service center for a then major computer company. From time to time we'd see clients with abnormally high failure rates (especially of hard drives). We developed a "site audit" procedure whereby we would investigate the local environment looking for a root cause.

In almost 100% of cases we were able to find and identify the root cause.

Common issues were:

* Poor quality power

... I have UPS's on all three PC's

* Heating/cooling issues

I live in the tropics but have aircon.

* Dust or other contaminants


* Pests


* Vibration sources


So I would continue looking seriously for a common source to all those failures.

Thank you for taking the time to respond. By the way, I was in IT for twenty years and the first ten of those was as a mid-range computer tech.
