    I personally think too much emphasis is being put on boot times. Boot time is NOT an indicator of performance once the computer has fully booted. Sure, "excessive" boot times could indicate a...

    Re: dvd player stopped working

    Hmmm, well I think my next response would have been to uninstall the driver and reboot. Then if that did not work, do it again, but this time, reset the BIOS. No harm their way, except for the loss...

    Re: dvd player stopped working

    Well, if not fixed yet, I would certainly make sure all connections are tight and secure, and I would look in Device Manger for any errors.

    Re: Outook Next Release Wish List - BWS1

    Wow, I bet this is a near record for the oldest thread to be pulled up from the depths. One month shy of 4 years!

    But anyway, that, excuse me, sucks that it still is not fixed, all these versions...

    Re: Quick Launch (Xp SP2)

    You can always create a new toolbar and fill it with as little or as much as you want.

    Re: Quick Launch (Xp SP2)

    Now the Office Toolbar is not the same as plain old Quicklaunch - perhaps you should not use the Office one. If nothing else, you should be able to remove those items on the Office toolbar you do not...

    Re: Quick Launch (Xp SP2)

    Resizing will always cause problems if your QL toolbar is full. But you can certainly move the icons around manually to group them in categories and they will remain in that order when you change...

    Re: Building a new PC

    I think before any recommendations can really be made, we need to know your budget. You say you want something towards the higher end but reasonably priced but that is too vague to be of use....

    While I agree it would be nice, and we should be able to change the default setting (shrink to fit) to something else and have that stick, but it seems to me that defeats the whole purpose of the...

    Re: BlueTake BT USB Dongle

    I would try it in another computer - it seems to me the LED should light to show it is receiving power. Even if XP does not recognize the device, it should still see that new HW has been installed. I...

    It should not matter that it is past 30 days if you reported the same problem initially within the first 30 day period.

    Re: Cold boot problems

    I think if they are willing to replace it, let them and get rid of a lemon.

    Does it matter if you are running on battery or plugged in?

    After they replaced the motherboard, did it work right?...

    It does not help that the PSU makers play with the figures - they are almost as bad as stereo and HT audio equipment makers rating their power amplifiers. You see a 5.1 amp rated at 600 watts, then...

    Re: Memory chip damage?

    I think your 150W may be a bit conservative for today's modern PCs and may lead some to think a cheap 200W supply is sufficient, even providing 33% overhead. Certainly just surfing the web or reading...
