Hello, i have been trying my 1st install of gentoo on a soyo pw9081
http://www.soyousa.com/pw9801.html

It had been compiling for about 15hrs and suddenly died, nothing...! no power on, beeps, lights, nothing.

I fear it may have killed the cpu :( and being only a poor lad i cannot afford a replacement notebook as this is out warrently and cpu is fixed to mother board so it is not a case of just replaing it, if indeed that is what problem is.

Maybe a note on install that there is possibility of cpu burn out on less powefull cpu's and more of a guide to installing and compiling on more powerful machine.

unhappy and notebook less boo woo :(

If, in fact, your CPU did burn out, it was likely caused by a lack of cooling. Gentoo does place a high stress level on the CPU because of all the compiling that it does. However, with proper cooling, even the slowest CPU will do just fine. It just takes longer. :)

Sorry to hear about your laptop, though. Hopefully, it turns out to be something else.
