They will know that the temperature is too hot. The absolute maximum temp for a p4 is, I believe 100 C (you do not have a centrino cpu--centrino is a family of technologies, not a cpu, you have a pentium 4 mobile)
Tell them you used everest to test the temp (they will likely tell you that it is inaccurate), and concede it might not be perfect, but 75 c is way beyond any margin of error you might expect
As for the USB, ah, I did not get that the other devices were working

So what do you think i should do, leave them all??
Posted 31 May 2006 - 12:03 PM
You said that first though?
Just reminding, that i do have a USB keyboard and a mouse, and my laptop keyboard doesnt work.
If i should still delete my finger is ready

you are correct
We are only interested in the storage devices anyway -- I suspect removing them will not be an issue, but why risk it
