Re: her fault for being impatient?

No, it's rubbish PSU design. All too common.

This would have been in the age of 286s (early 1990's), when PSUs were somewhat less sophisticated and refined than they are, or should be, today.

Not that there aren't still a lot of poor PSUs these days, particularly for consumer networking kit and similar.
