+1 for thermal issues. Check the Processor, Chipsets, GPU(s), Powersupply, make sure fans aren't gunked up with dust. Make sure thermal paste is properly applied to all heatsinks, etc.

comment Why can't I ping a PC on my home network?
You need to go into your router's configuration and remove the DNS suffix. Sometimes this is simply called "Domain Name" too, but I would consult your router's documentation.

comment How to properly uninstall visual styles in windows 7
Given that there is no proper way to install them in the first place, I'd refer to any recommendations of the program that put those changes there.

comment Will I suffer any major drawback(s) if I have the drive formatted as FAT-32
I would hope that the PS3 gets exFAT support soon, which I think would be a reasonable alternative to NTFS in this case.

You can upgrade to SQL Express 2008 R2 which raises the limit to 10 GB.

comment How do I adjust the actual font sizes in Internet Explorer?
In addition to Zooming, you can look under "View" -> "Text Size" -> "Largest". This will change the text size but everything else will remain the same size, so scrollbars are less likely too appear. You may need to press "alt" when in IE to get the Edit menu to appear.

I would also check in your start menu and in the System Tray (the area near the clock) to see if there is an application for configuring the DVD drive. Usually it's some 3rd party piece of software.

comment What's an easy way to shut down a computer that I'm connected to via RDP
@David I was talking about using shutdown from the command line, not using the start menu since there is no start menu option to shut down over remote desktop.

comment CD drive always available in a laptop
Are you saying your CD/DVD drive doesn't work on battery? Usually in new laptops it's an option to turn off and there is a Tray Icon to enable/disable CD/DVD.

@David That is not the case on Windows 7 or Vista then. Passing in -f will still cause it to wait 30 seconds. I suspect it is the same with XP as well, but don't have a machine to try it on.

If you want to do these actions immediately, add -t 0 to the command. Or change the 0 to the number of seconds before it happens. Defaults to 30.

comment Mac OS X 10.6 & Windows XP File Transfer Problems
This sounds like a Duplex issue with your network. Either your computers or router is half duplex, or there is a duplex mismatch. It's hard to diagnose this issue without getting a packet analysis.
