I think you'll find the power cable to the fan has been melted at some point so thats why it no longer turns on haha

My Dell laptop heats up quickly, which is kind of a good thing because my wifi won't associate with the AP until the computer is warm/hot. It will see the AP but cannot connect to it. I tend to keep it running 24/7 these days. If I do shut it down and it cools down, I usually start up MS Flight Simulator X and fly around for 5-10 minutes and that usually does the trick.

I posted a comment on the Stuff article, pointing out to Tony #10 (critical of Stuffs research) that he needs to have a closer look at the article - he'd see it's written by Reuters not Stuff. I went on to say that apart from that, I agreed with his sentiment.

That was late on 21 Mar (3 days ago) and there were 17 comments on the story. I'm finding it mildly amusing that a "moderator" must have gotten a bit miffed with my suggestion as my comment still hasn't been posted :-)
