When using Linux (ahhhh! ;) you could swap a harddisk like that, if the processor type is compatible. With Windows you could try, but I think it won't work unless the laptop is of the same type. Much easier copy the Mozilla profile and zip it as a backup shutdown firefox move your new profile to the desktop move the old profile into the Profiles folder ...

http://www.indirectsound.com/ appears to do some of what you've asked for. IndirectSound emulates audio hardware acceleration on modern Windows operating systems. This enables older games to have 3D positional audio (i.e. surround sound played out of rear and side speakers) like they were intended to when they were originally released. ...

I have seen this on 2 different models of laptop. (A Sony Vaio around 2005 and a Toshiba Sattelite around 2008). I have also observed white, red and blue flashes on various other laptops and desktops. As far as I know this is just the monitor displaying whatever random content the video-card has in video-memory before the card is properly re-initialized when ...

Macs do this with NetBoot - the computer boots over the LAN, the OS is on a read-only disk image on the server. A shadow image (writeable volume union mounted over the read-only image) handles anything the user wants do do. The shadow image can be on a local volume (faster) or on a server allowing diskless workstations. When the client is rebooted the ...

It's easy to do and there are several ways to do this with either Windows or Linux, and I can only assume with Macs as well. Besides doing this from a software perspective, you can also use special hardware like thin clients. If you have any experience with Linux LiveCD's, it's the same principle. You start the OS, you allow the users to do everything they ...

There's a few tools that let you do this, and a few hackish methods as well. The 'proper' way to do this on XP was using windows steadystate - and while there was never a proper replacement, MS claims you can do these things with standard tools in Windows 7 There are also commercial tools for this like deepfreeze that sandbox a system. Some have also ...

This issue resulted from .Net 4.5.1 already being installed on Vista SP2 to Windows 7 RTM, which is not compatible with .Net 4.5.1. This is additionally complicated by the fact Windows 7 RTM doesn't understand what .Net 4.5.1 is and misbehaves when trying to remove it. It also appears that the Microsoft .Net Cleanup Tool does not recognize that it should ...

I figured that I would post an update to this since I was having difficulty installing Visual Studio 6.0 even while following the previous steps. Here are the steps I took to install Visual Studio 6.0 onto my Win7 Pro 32bit system. You should take care to follow these steps exactly and not deviate. The failed installs are due to the outdated DLL files that ...

As Ramhound mentioned it's always a tussle of trying to find out if its hardware or software that's causing the problem. If you load your Device Manager in Windows you can expand down Universal Serial Bus Controllers and double click on each USB Root Hub then click on the power tab within here you will see if any devices are 'plugged in' (or at least se if ...

I would copy them manually. It will take a while, but you can just leave it going overnight, and you can selectively ignore files which are of no use (eg \Windows directory, swap file, etc). I wouldn't think there would be much of interest outside the \users and \ProgramData directories. To be more thorough, I might be tempted to zip the whole drive so that ...

Answer found. Follow this link and share the permissions and access to this directory. THIS IS IMPORTANT! Once that's been done, try connecting by creating a new "Local" port (through the process listed in the question), and it should work! The "Access Denied." error should no longer appear.

A solution that worked for me was to disable system services which I considered junk: sevices from vendors other than Microsoft that seemd not critical (ie. Java Quick Start, Google Update, Serviio, Intel ...

I suggest to reset Advanced Settings of Internet Explorer. Tools > Internet Options > Advanced > Restore advanced settings Also make sure that you are using Internet Explorer 32 bit version, as most of the plugins are not supported in 64 bit Internet Explorer.

You can also insert two blank rows between your large rows, then hide the blank rows. This will make excel act as though you changed your mouse line scroll to 1 line but not affect your other applications. This might not solve your entire need (if one large row doesn't even fit on one screen), but it will help a little.
