comment No eth* interface
I've had to manually install a device myself - more information on your hardware - specifically whether this was an addon card, might be useful

Or the top. System builder licences do come with 'real' product keys, just much simpler packaging/

comment Fix too high DPI causing extremely large text and graphics in desktop mode (but not in Modern UI) on a Windows 8.1 tablet
Does that thing have an external monitor option? Is the command line usable?

comment Embedded linux machine shutdowns itself
logs would help, depending on how your embedded linux logs. A lot more details on what this machine is would help

comment Seagate Momentus not recognized by BIOS after firmware update. Would a PCB replacement work?
How old is the drive? If there's nothing important in it, and warranty would cover it, its probably worth seeing if you can RMA it

comment Limit disk size uTorrent may use
I'd also add, with recent news on utorrent, I'd be considering another torrent client in your shoes. That's entirely tangential to the question though. I tend to use qbitorrent these days. Not as light as the original old and awesome utorrent, but does the job

comment Using only AAAA record for a domain?
I actually do this for individual systems in my dual-stack network. In theory, if I'm at someplace with ipv6, I can use hostname.domainame.tld to access specific systems in my network. This would depend on your values of fully functional tho

The errors within might actually explain the user's issues. Rolled back in case that's *actually* what he had used.

comment Headphones work using Linux, not Windows 7
I've been caught out by this as well. On some systems you need to plug in your headphones for the headphone device to turn up.

comment 65W TDP CPU in a Socket with a 95W TDP CPU
While they're the same socket, its worth checking if your motherboard supports the core 2. Chipset support will be more of an issue than TDP here

comment No network identification, or network access
We don't bump. We provide details. Something worth considering is you're confusing wireless and wired connections. Your cat-5 cable won't help with 5ghz or 2.4ghz networks. Chances are you have AP that dosen't support 5ghz, and another or issue somewhere. What's your modem? What's your router?

Bad cables can force slower speeds. What's your NIC?

comment Bad sectors found, should I replace my drive?
heh. I was wondering about that, but assumed the OP would have checked warranty status. I guess you guys do have the advantage of actually knowing these first hand for the drives you support.

comment Prevent HDDs from spinning up before shutdown in Ubuntu/ZoL/SAS2008 environment
Migrated to server fault, and let a mod there know about this. Good luck!
