Maybe it's a coincidence, but I'm not aware of an operating system installation that will cause a computer to have a literal meltdown. If you smell melting plastic, you're suffering a hardware problem that will not get better. I wouldn't leave this system unattended and running/plugged in, for fear of a fire.

I agree 100% with Lemur, but its a funny conicidence that it happens just when you changed the system. OS dont normally do that, but hunch here is that it is somehow tied together.
