The "Word moves desktop icons problem" has a long history on the web. When you save a Word file normally, Word creates a perfect image of that doc file with a name ~WRL*** and changes your original desktop icon to have this ~WRL name. If you have a Word crash later on, that saved file is perfect and is used by the recovery system or you can just use it ...

Try installing the proper drivers from the Asus website before using the external card, and disabling integrated graphics/enabling external graphics from your BIOS.

First, make a copy of your desktop (e.g. DesktopCopy folder containing the shortcuts you want on the desktop) and put it in the documents folder (or another user defined folder). Secondly, create a batch file which will copy (and overwrite!) your desktop with the files from the DesktopCopy folder). You can use the mirror function of robocopy deleting files ...

You will need to migrate some data to the new SSD to free up space on the old one. Simply plugging in a second drive will just give you another drive letter; it will not "extend" the SSD you already have. You can create "spanned" volumes with multiple SSDs, but you can't boot off them. So if your OS is installed to your current SSD, that option is off the ...

Yes, you'll get more space. But it'll be in a different drive letter. But it's possible to direct program installations into the 2nd SSD as well. Some of the program's data (depending on the program) might still need to be kept on the 1st SSD where your OS is installed, so you might still want to clean it up a bit. If you can connect your second SSD your ...

I would recommend installing an add-on, firefox has so many awesome ones! Add-this is a good one, adds a quick way to share directly from firefox: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/addthis/ There are lots of other options, so search and find one which suits your sharing style. Hope that helps! Good luck and may the force be with you. Nate

If you leave Windows Media Player open, it can prevent the screen saver from activating (handy if you're watching a movie with it). You can go into its settings and enable "Allow screen saver during playback."

I have this exact same issue and have fixed it. For me the problem was due to my Microsoft Keyboard (http://www.microsoft.com/hardware/en-us/p/sculpt-ergonomic-desktop#support). The solution is to simply install the keyboard and mouse drivers from Microsoft. I found the solution here: http://forums.cnet.com/7726-7590_102-2767704.html I have my power plan ...

You could always just hide them instead of having a script constantly delete them. Right click the icon Cick Properties Check the Hidden box at the bottom of the general tab Hit apply and it's gone! If you hide something and want to get it back later, you need to: Navigate to your Desktop from Explorer (open a folder, type Desktop in the bar at the ...

In the folder that contains item1 and item3, create a new folder called item2. Then drag the shortcut item2 into the new folder item2. You are left with three folders (item1, item2, and item3) in proper alphabetical order. The folder item2 has only one thing in it: the shortcut to (the real) item2. This is very simple, although I do grant you that it ...

What you're looking for is called KVM switch, and the range is big. What you need is one of the cheaper ones, which basically lets you connect VGA and/or DVI in addition to some USB devices and sometimes including sound. This shouldn't set you back too much, as it's a fairly basic device. In large environments, it is common for entire KVM systems that costs ...

Since you just moved, you might want to try reseating (removing and re-inserting) anything that could have come loose in the move, particularly the memory and the video card (if you have a dedicated video card).

Have you tried using another CPU? Maybe one borrowed from a pal? Also, I'd try another PSU. Maybe yours for some reason ain't delivering the necessary power to completely boot the machine (I've had this issue) After all that tried, I'd think the possibility of a fried MB. Did you try also clearing the CMOS?
