PC won't boot when it's cold
I've just come back from visiting the outlaws and my father-in-law tells me he has been having problems with his Dell (XP home SP2) PC. On cold mornings, his PC won't boot. He says says he gets a message "something about thermal" (It's great isn't it? Vague messages even from the family!)
The outlaws live in a fairly standard centrally-heated bungalow, the heating is off at night, but even so it doesn't get that cold. The power to the PC is switched off at the wall overnight.
Anyone got any ideas please?
I'm not going to get overly stressed about this. He says the problem isn't happeing so often now the weather's got warmer. The bit that concerns me is my father-in-law using a hairdryer to warm it up until it will boot. :eek:
