I'm a frustrated Granny who can't get an answer to a simple question (without paying an arm and a leg). I've got high hopes that this forum can help me. What say some of you?

I'm not sure I'm doing this right but here goes. We have positioned our Dell CPU in a horizontal position as opposed to a vertical position as is shown in most photographs. Will this affect the performance of the CPU? As of right now, everything seems fine but I'm thinking what about long term? What about using the CD drive and the floppy drive? Okay, gang, what do you have for Granny?

It's good to see you here :thumbsup:

Will this affect the performance of the CPU?

It depends on what side it's laying..... if it's covering the air vents, you will have problems.

What about using the CD drive

if your pc is designed to lay in the horizontal postion, then no problems. Computers that are designed to lay this way will have some small retaining clips for the cd to hold it in position whilst it turns. If it doesn't have any clips..... Put the computer up the right way!.
