    System Meltdown?

    Forget about global warming...............Compaq make laptops that run as hot as a nuclear explosion.

    This guy's box wouldn't start because it reached 5155C

    Story here:


    I think that the truth of the matter is that the display doesn't support decimal points. The cutoff will be set at 50C (that seems to be a common default?)............... so it wouldn't start.

    I would guess that he has dust bunnies in his vents and fans...........or maybe the CPU fan has failed?
