I'm not aware that that option is available, but given what I've already said... I'll be looking into Linux ;)

I bought my wife a Dell Dimension 521e (found the deal at gotapex.com btw) came with basic Vista, 1GB DDR2 Athlon X2 3800+ processor... Well after the initial set up for Vista.... It ran like a dog. I thought I was running a Pentium II system to be honest. I decided to reformat the drive and put her...

I once had a board with symptoms similar to your and it was a mainboard grounding problem. I lost a screw under the board and it was wedged between the board and the case. I am not saying this is your problem, but make sure nothing is touching the board underneath.

I am not suggesting that peoples lack of knowledge gives anyone the right to defraud anyone. It is obviously wrong and they should be punished and / or prosecuted. But does this video make all best buys bad or would it suggest that there are good eggs and bad eggs in all professions? Now since I'm a...

The problem here lies in a public that, by and large, is uneducated when it comes to personal computers and have to "depend" on someone else for help. And unfortunately that dependence opens the door for shoddy business practices and fraud. But we are preaching to the choir in here because most peop...

I dunno about running a powerful magnet around the tube. I heard yrs ago you shouldnt do that near a TV so I cant see how it could be good with a monitor either. Well in my case the alternative was throwing away the tv which has worked fine 6 years later. So I suppose this could be a last resort op...

I have a 27 inch tv that had a spot like that once, and I am not saying that this will work for you so please don't try this at home unless you want to take total responsibility for the outcome. What I did was run a powerful magnet along the edge of the screen and it seemed to re-align the "electron...

It seems , Imho, that Bigfoot is a bit before its time. It sounds like a great and promising product for the future. When Broadband expands to the " Internet 2 " that I've heard about which scales faster downloads is made available to the masses I would imagine that the K1 would be a must have nic.
