Heat generation by Mint
I was wondering why so much heat comes from the power supply fan. Is the conversion from 120 Volt to the lower voltages that inefficient ? Thanks.

Can't boot from DVD by Des
Hi. Have I got some kind of motherboard virus or something. I do have kaspersky. I can't get my PC to boot of either of my DVD drives. I have disconnected one and tried that. They do work and one is brand new. Auto insert works fine. Can't remember last time I needed it. Thanks Desmond.
