Thanks everybody for the very very useful advice. I actually gave it a good clean this morning, and it already seems happier.
Will give it a day, and if it stays on, know it's cured. Trouble is, I was beginning to get excited at the thought of a new computer and I'm feeing a bit cheated now. :roll:

It is over five years old, and the tower is in an enclosed space so am assuming it has something to do with that. As I spend so much time...

Auberge des Albères, Saint Genis des Fontaines

Had dinner here last night. Really good. Averagely priced at 23€ for three courses but reasonable considering the food was delish, with a superb choice, home made, well presented and some dishes with a difference. Definitely something for everyone, meat eaters and veggies alike. Good service and gre...

We know some people who rented out their house via a letting agency for over four years but elected not to pay the tax. In the fourth year they were served a bill for over 5000 which added daily interest when they didnt pay it immediately. This was about five years ago, so things might have changed,...
