Lol @ blaming linux.

Anyways, my PC was doing this a couple nights ago. Wouldn't post and sat with a red light on. I unplugged it and cleaned the crap out of it (lots of dust). I re-applied some thermal paste as I figured it might of been heat problems. I put it all back together, and it took a bit for it to post the first time, however now it is running butter smooth, and am seeing quite the preformance increase just from the actions I took to clean it and cool it.

Yeah in my case everything is new, I always clean it every 2-3 weeks for dust so its spotless.
It was just an ill timed death of my SSD but I'm still scared to try my USB boot device, not in the mood to kill another pc.
Maybe I'll try it on my work laptop lol
