Sorry not to reply, I've been very busy lately...
for what it's worth, I am running little stress test, simultaneousluy
playing a dvd in the dvd-drive, and ocmpiling a kernel. I'm getting
slight shifts on the voltages:
+12v --> +13.31;
+5V --> +4.46
The 12V is OUT OF SPEC. The 5V should be 5V +/- 10%,
and usually I set them to 5.05V under essentially no load.
The 4.46V looks a little low, but not worrisomely so.
cpu temp up to 70. (thisi s an athlon k7 2400+).
This does not look worrisome.
So I think (a) anything involving the DVD is clearly a bit dodgy; and
(b) I probably need a new power supply.

You have found the bank of Larn.
I can explain it for you, but I can't understand it for you.
I speak only for myself, and I am unanimous in that!
