You're free to recommend that. Considering EvFs description of the problem, he seems to indicate that the USB subsystem is unstable. An overheating processor would manifest its issues under load.

Since software is highly complex and easy to fault, I often favor the nuke it approach.

At a bare minimum EvF could try a Live Linux USB boot and see if there's any issues. If it doesn't manifest, then a hardware fault becomes less likely (but more obnoxious to diagnose if actually faulted).
What is a drop of rain... compared to the storm?

What is a thought... compared to a mind?
Another friend told me he had a friend with the same problem and he thinks that my USBs have short-circuited. So rather than a heating problem (my laptop is very new and doesn't feel hot at all... and I had a much hotter older laptop that didn't have any hearting problems until it was far far hotter than this) it could be something simple like that.

I think that... because my warranty isn't covered for accidental damage and the store where I bought it from could falsely claim that I damaged the USB ports and therefore my warranty is null and void... I should perhaps just keep using my laptop until it actually dies and then get it replaced with my warranty intact. And my new laptop will actually have working USBs Tongue

It's a 2 year warranty. I can live without working USBs for 2 years, hehe. I just wouldn't want to be stuck without using a mouse for a decade or something lol.
