comment Setting an image's size (in pixels) so that it won't have to be stretched or resized to fit the paper's width when printing
Does the DPI of an image file come into the equation? For example, let's say that my image file has 300 DPI.

@psusi I would like to know how to make my image be 8.5 x 11 inches in size, or just have 8.5 inches width (i.e. how to compute for the equivalent of 8.5 x 11 inches paper size in pixels?)

comment Adblock-like plugin for hiding social sites' widgets, buttons, etc
@CamiloMartin I prefer the Fanboy Annoyances block list to the Antisocial list, as it blocks more than just social media content (also in-page popups, newsletters, unnecessary links, self promos and other content that clutters sites unnecessarily). See a comparison between the two here (link).

comment What are ways to prevent files with the Right-to-Left Override Unicode character in their name (a malware spoofing method) from being written or read?
"I would strongly advise you to make use of the solution that Tom Wijsman pointed out." Actually, that was a solution that I pointed out. I already set Windows to do that. Like what I replied to Tom Wijsman, I'm looking for other solutions that will prevent the RLO character from being written and read, or a solution that will automatically notify or alert the user if the RLO character is detected. I'm afraid I don't have the technical know-how to write the filter you described.

Not sure if this is a normal temperature for this CPU, but here's a screenshot of CoreTemp, ~3 minutes after the Windows desktop appears: imgur.com/yJbBq (Min: 57°C, Max: 61°C, Tj. Max: 100°C). Screenshot from HWMonitor, ~30 minutes after the Windows desktop appears (not sure which is the GPU temperature): imgur.com/XCsiL

I connected the netbook to an external monitor (through VGA) and the display in the external monitor shows up just fine. I have been able to use the netbook without any issues with an external monitor.

"Since the problem doesn't occur immediately on powerup, the only cause that seems likely to me is overheating. Have you verified that the fan still spins." I just found out that this also happens at BIOS startup. To further troubleshoot this, I connected the netbook to an external monitor (through VGA) and the display in the external monitor shows up just fine. I can't seem to find a fan for this netbook (it probably doesn't have one). I still cleaned its exhaust vents at the bottom.

@Bobby Yes. This has also happened at BIOS startup (just found that out). It sometimes goes away after a reboot, sometimes it doesn't. I also connected the netbook to an external monitor (through VGA) and the display in the external monitor shows up just fine. I'll see what I can do to check the GPU temperature.

edited to account for troubleshooting updates; reverted tags as I don't believe this is OS-specific and am looking for possible hardware repair solutions
