Have you checked whether there is a BIOS upgrade available that could address this?

comment Use regression equation in excel formula
This should be possible if the functions are continuous. Are you just saying that the coefficients of the powers in the function definition vary? Presumably they vary according to another known funtion? Perhaps you could give an example?

comment How do I install fonts on Linux Mint?
If the font is a Truetype .ttf file then copying to a system fonts directory or your ~/.fonts should suffice. Other font types may be different. For example, an Opentype font may work with some programs but may not work with all (especially if it's a .otf file). Some programs will find it more easily if fc-cache is re-run and the application restarted.

comment Keyboard lights sometimes stay on after PC is powered off. Why?
Do you power off at the wall socket or just do a software shutdown? The former should remove all power from the machine (after a few seconds for capacitor discharge) unless you have a UPS. A software shutdown does not remove (all) power from the motherboard.

comment Why did my friends get spams from my email?
@puri, I was only addressing whether an email claiming to be from you actually did come from your machine/email account. On whether a virus on your PC could send an email from your webmail account, I wouldn't say it's not possible to do it directly but the greater risk may be malicious software capturing log-in credentials to hi-jack the account, for example. Equally, an email appearing to come from you could be from somebody with access to your webmail account (e.g. through knowing or finding out the password or using a session that was not closed correctly).
