Regrding power supply on my small form factor computer. Yes, it could be bad. Its tough to check since components are so tightly packed. If it is indeed bad, no replacement is available. the supply is a 250 watt compact supply by Enhance. There are no supplies of that form factor currently available.
Re: Linux - yep, I've burned a DVD with Ubuntu and intend to run from the DVD. I'm worried about driver issues on the laptop, and as a last resort, will simply use it without internet access.
