    Win7 SP1 Install issues

    I don't currently have access to an install disc (netbook) so I will have to tear into this more once I have access to my usb dvd drive. Any other options such as CBS.log I will look into. My CBS log is currently 17mb, so it will take some time to dig through. I am curious why I can't run sfc...

    [WTB][US] PCI/PCI-E Composite Video Card

    I need a video card capable of output to a composite video LCD display. I would prefer ATI as nVidia's custom resolution software is currently broken. Price range is incredibly cheap <$25 shipped preferred. Let me know what you got.

    Apple Launches the 3rd-Generation iPod Shuffle with 4 GB Internal Storage

    Too bad the headphones are drm locked... IE you have to use the included headphones, or pay for a licensed pair from a partner company. I'll stick to the 3rd gen nano I found on the side of the road...

    Ubuntu and HPT371

    No its not the bug you listed. I said I'm using two PATA drives. The sata controller suffers from the very slow transfer rate. The HPT37X chip sets are supported by Ubuntu 8.10, however mine is not being mounted by the kernel. The bug file clearly states that the hard drive is usuable, hence...

    The morning of January 2nd I woke up to a lovely message from my computer. When logging in I was stopped and told I had to activate XP. Thing is, the OS is activated.
