Let's see... ::klink klink...::

As far as I can tell without opening up the beast, it's the power supply.
When I boot into Windows, it seems it doesn't power down completely but
simply slows down.

FYI, the system is Sony.  Windows is XP.

Yep.  Turned it on when I recompiled the kernel.  Still no effect.

Thanks!  I'd appreciate further insites!
