    Can anyone recommend a good monitor?

    Can we use our OEM XP key on non OEM XP disc?

    I'm going to give it a shot. This laptop doesn't like Win7 (BSOD). 6 year old core 2 duo. HPDV1700. Wiping out the hard drive right now and will be installing XP. In other news, I did get the New Asus UX31 and this thing is pretty!

    Hit hard with the Data Recovery virus

    ^ I already had Malwarebyte but the virus prevented me from using it. It basically hid everything and prevented me from installing some of the other programs available. Only after removing the registry entries was I able to get my computer back working. Then I was able to run...

    1 month old HD clicking loud, but now it has stopped?

    For the last 2 days, it was making horrible clicking sounds. When watching a move or even defragging it. I decided to move all my files to a different drive and all of a sudden, the noise stops.. WTF? Should I RMA it anyways? I'm moving a few files back and it seems quiet still. No more...

    Apple Sues Amazon Over Term 'App Store'

    Apple Sues Amazon Over Term 'App Store'

    I'm usually behind apple, but this one is just stupid.. App store to me is a generic term. Why the hell was apple given a trademark for that term? Especially when other companies are allowed to use words like "Xerox" when that is obviously not a generic term but a Company's trademark. They...

    Laptop no longer working. What could be the problem?

    I think the LCD screen is dead. I pressed every button on the keyboard and nothing shows up on the 21" monitor either so i'm not sure how to switch displays. Also the HD led on the laptop isn't lighting up. So maybe something else is wrong. I don't see any thing on the keyboard to switch...
