OK, new info on the restart problem.

I just ran lmmon (lmmon -i) and got outrageously high readings: 185C, varying.
Yet the heat sink isn't even warm. Assuming that lmmon can be trusted, I have
to check (read re-do) the thermal compound. I'm not really looking forward
to this, so if anyone knows that lmmon can't be trusted, please email me in
the next few hours!
I have some Arctic Silver laying around.
