comment How can I increase my Graphics Card's video memory on my HP Probook 4510s? It's currently 64MB on the Mobile Intel GMA 4500HD
Adding more ram directly in almost 80% will not increase the ram avaialbne for GFX. Higher end gaming notebooks(ie alien ware with full chipsets) are usually the ones with this option.. but you still set it in the BIOS, it not automatic! Embedded GFX usaully are very restricted to options in the BIOS and pre defined values from vendor 64,128,256,512. And even if you have 1gb.. you can set GFX to use 512MB and only have 512 for the system.

comment Seagate harddrive unmounted, gives “daemon inhibited”?
Well I am glad you can asses that situation, because many times .. I got hard drives that were rammed to death with spinrite and had to replace heads.. when a simple PIO mode with CRC disabled will get the data back within hours/days and the HDD will still live to tell another story. Did not mean to offend you.. I just dont like spinrite.

comment How to synchronize clocks for computers that are not online?
Its just windows being a pain in the neck as usaull :( Sorry to hear that.. but that link explains hyper-v, in other words virutalization. You better of with using VM with a NTP server on it, that will auto start on reboot...

comment Seagate harddrive unmounted, gives “daemon inhibited”?
@Doitknuckle - Sorry i meant the HDDGuru Forums. There are many professionals there form all over the world. Ye- spinrite it only good to refresh sectors on a non failing, or not suspected to fail drive. Rendering spinrite useless, because who refreshed sectors now a days? In my whole career of recovering data never did once spinrite manage to accomplish anything worth talking about. If it is software related, spinrite wont fix it, if its hardware, spinrite wont fix it, and this forum is not for data recovery, hdd guru forum is. And if the disk is unmountable.. how will spinrite help?

comment Windows 7, download speeds drop to 0 kb/s and the download has to be restarted
You have to remember that any temp downlaod data is soted on the system drive.. so on the SSD. The ssd cannot cope with the write speed, stops to catch up and then the downlaod malfucntions.. and crashed.. The joys of SSD's.. You need to setup ALL temp and CACHE to the sata drive or to RAM DRIVE!

comment Will a 7mm SSD fit in a 9.5mm laptop HDD slot?
Yea- its the thickness. It can be smaller than spec. But some 2.5" like 750GB are thicker and dont always fit.. The srews are positions absolutley to the sata port.. so that it will fir perfectly.. there is no need for convertors or anything. It is a standard that has to be follwed- or it will say- you need another caddy or something psecial- which is very rare. enjoy the ssd :)

Yes- as long as its not bigger. There is usally a caddy that holds the HDD. this is where the SSD will have to be put... so it will fit snug to specification, and usually when you put the cover on, the screws hold the caddy in place..

comment Why does DRAM not burn-out when SSD's do?
Two different technologies of chips.. explained on wikipedia. Basically RAM is volatile- it stores its context using an eleictrical charge. SSD is non-volatile it stores its bit without charge-changing the materials property physically- which after time will burn out. Similar to Rewrittable CDroms.

comment Does partitioning a hard drive give a performance gain?
Not great and not always the same. The way data is stored physically on sniping drives does not relate to how partitions are made. You think that on a 100GB HDD if you make partition 0-90GB the 90-100GB you would think that the 90-100GB partition is faster because its on the outside ring of the platter - but that is not always the case - besides - in todays speeds is 5mb/s going to load your game twice as fast.. or maybe 0.5seconds faster. You want speed. Store once to SSD and laod form ther.. now thats 100X faster!
