He could also just download the gparted live disc and use that, less clutter, straight to the point, smaller and will load up faster.

comment Acer Aspire One getting extremely hot
Until you discover what is the problem, my guess a driver issue with either fan speed or the temp probe, I'd stick to another OS.

comment USB transfers very slow (kB/s range only)
Question, do all USB 2.0 devices work that slow on the port, or is it just the 1, and have you tried a USB 3.0 device, on the 3.0 port.

comment My external HardDisks aren't being spun down - Linux Mint 14
Honestly, I'd use task manager to look for any processes that shouldn't be running, as a common issue with some windows programs is after you close them the process will keep running, not to prone to linux, but I'm sure there is a similar function within it.

comment My external HardDisks aren't being spun down - Linux Mint 14
Usually this happens when a program is accessing a file on the drive without you noticing it, I ran into a somewhat similar problem before, but that was on windows and I don't know of many linux programs that could do something like that without notice.

comment What explains the garbled message “Start Wandows Ngrmadly” in text mode?
Alternatively, and with less chance of damaging capacitors/silicon chips/resistors, various other components if you have a heat gun, remove the board from the case, take 5 perfectly level stands, something soft like plastic or wood to lay it on, 4 corners 1 in middle, set the heat to max setting, with it 6-12 inches off the board move it around the board for 30 seconds to a min to prevent localised expansion, and then focus in on the processor for 15-20 seconds at about 3-4 inches, back off and let it cool, do not touch it whatever you do.
