    John, just a tangential comment here... I installed Win7 on an Inspiron 1010 netbook, the smaller sister to the 1110. While it ran fine it was a bit "leisurely" compared to what I was used to with...

    Is that the filename (ACCCx181.zip.aamdownload)? If so, the last part of the name suggests an "in progress" download, which may have failed or been interrupted at some point. That would also...

    I can't tell from these snippets if you're under the impression you should be avoiding the Google Play store.

    Most apps in the Play store are from third-party developers, and getting a third-party...

    I don't think your modem/router/gateway device should be losing the admin pwsd after a power cycle, though whether it should do so after an upgrade is less definitive. Think of the parallel with...

    Since you're not running an OS on the 2TB drive there is absolutely NO reason to use cloning. Cloning is necessary only to move/copy an existing OS partition. With data partitions you need only to...

    The Workforce works great as a network printer, so connect it to your LAN instead of USB. Then the VM can see it on the network, just like any ordinary network-connected computer. Another advantage...

    While a new router may be a little better than your old router (802.11n wifi is supposed to have a little better range than 802.11g), you'll get far better results by leaving your current router as...

    Don't use the Win7 tool. It's buggy and function-limited. There are several third-party partition management tools that are much more reliable than Microsoft's tool. Several are even free --...

    Don't know if this applies to Oldtechie's copy, but Adobe shut down the activation servers awhile ago for several Adobe products, including Acrobat 7. If he hasn't already done so, I believe...

    Don,

    I have seen that symptom on occasion. In the cases I examined the cause was corrupt or missing boot sector code--the "instructions" the CPU is trying to follow in the MBR or PBR (partition...

    I don't have any clues as to what may be the cause. To verify a cause-and-effect relationship, you might try removing the mini-PCI card and seeing if that stops the BSODs. It's a simple 2-minute...

    Dell only puts the latest driver on the Drivers summary page, so contrary to appearances there are not newer/older versions of the same thing. You need to dig into "View details" to differentiate...

    Everything still seems to be there on the Dell support site, so I'm not sure how you could have missed the network drivers if you found the others.

    If you want a one-click utility to just do the updates in one fell swoop, try Syncback Free. It's highly configurable, so you can do a backup (A->B or B->A) or synchronization (A<->B), and even pick...

    Glad to hear you got it all sorted out.

    You shouldn't expect any problems getting rid of "Win 7 Old".

    When you do get around to eliminating "XP" and converting to a single-boot system, that's...

    Any decent partition manager should work. My preference is for the Partition Manager in Terabyte's Boot-It Bare Metal, but the freebie Mini-Tool Partition Wizard should work adequately, as well.

    It should, but test it to be sure. After you make the CD, boot from it with your external drive plugged in and see what you find.

    I used to have 120GB and even 160GB IDE drives running in my old C600 Latitudes, which was a close cousin of the Inspiron 4000. You should have no trouble using a 80GB IDE drive.
