comment Factory Reset for Dell Dimension 1950
Well, if you want to avoid the bloatware, then just re-install from a Windows install disk as mentioned, and only load necessary device drivers. Good time to do BIOS updates, by the way. If your issue is solved, can you accept one of the answers so your question is marked as solved? Thanks!

comment Encrypted HDD vs. Power Outage. SOL?
What is output to dmesg when you run cryptsetup? Also: run cryptsetup with --verbose --debug; update your question with any dmesg or cryptsetup output. I'd also try these drives in a different system - maybe the SATA interfaces are fried, and the drives are OK. Same for trying while booted off a LiveCD, just to eliminate any OS corruption as a cause.

comment MacBook grey screen at boot, cannot press any keys
You could confirm by swapping it back, into another machine, or an external USB case. SSD failures aren't unheard of; I've seen plenty a Newegg reviewer or OCZ forum commenter gripe about total failure. I'd definitely contact the manufacturer to troubleshoot or request a replacement, maybe poke around on their web forums if they have any; it might be fixed with a firmware update or tool from the manufacturer. Glad you figured out what it was (and I hope you had a recent backup!); if my post helped, would you mark it as the solution, please?

comment What does the mailto beside the sender's email mean?
It looks like the sender's email client is possibly misconfigured. Many people mistakenly enter their email address where their name should go. If they don't match, one of them is a typo; contact the person via phone, for example, to clarify. Also, please note that this site is for professional system administrators, not basic email/internet support questions.
