Could someone in I.T. take a look at Diane's PC. She's out on vacation this week, but it's been acting funny and no one on 8 West can print. Also, we stranded tens of thousands of people for a whole day and brought international travel to a halt and caused worldwide news. Whenever you stop by 8 West next could you check her pc? thanks
Guys if you could look at this right now it would be great.
(AP) LOS ANGELES The source of last weekend's system breakdown at Los Angeles International Airport has been traced to a malfunctioning network interface card on a single desktop computer.
U.S. Customs officials say the card -- -- which allows computers to connect to a local area network -- experienced a partial failure around 12:50 p.m. Saturday that had a domino effect with other computer network cards.
A total system failure occurred a little after 2 p.m., leaving more than 17,000 inbound international travelers stranded in the terminal or on airplanes because authorities were unable to screen them.
The malfunction prompted city and state leaders to request briefings and reports from customs and aviation officials.
The system was up and running again by 4 a.m. Sunday, but experienced a second 80 minute outage late Sunday into early Monday, which was blamed on a power supply failure.
