comment Can HDD Platters be interchanged between different HDDs
Heya Bamboon.. I just called two different places for you just for giggles. A 300GB HDD would be minim 500.00 for them to image. IF they have to take into the clean room (and here I am a bit chagrined as he says they generally do it by hand but... they been doing it for decade! And they have the proper tools...) However, the most important part is a clean room. Unless you have access to a clean room the likely hood of this working is slim to none. And, if they took that same drive into the clean for the disassemble approach that's minimum 1600.00.. that's assuming all goes SMOOTHLY.

And this would be why you don't do it. It's called a Ghost. Image your shit.

Seriously? Why WOULDN'T it be voted down my friend? First of all, just how precious is the data? Second, while step by steps on this are available you are going to have find a bad drive of exact same model even to firmware and then you don't know WHAT was bad.. could have same issue or worse. Third, those were not meant to be handled by HAND. There were meant to be dealt with by precise operation machines. Even IF you managed to do the swap... now you gotta align the heads etc... No damn way you are gunna pull that off. The places doing this charge up of 350.00/hour + machines for it.

comment Reset Chrome download manager to default
The user CLEARLY wanted to go NO plugin NO addin. He wanted Chrome reset to default behavior. What was so hard to grasp about that?

HORRIBLE answer. You give work arounds vs the actual solution. This will not serve you well in the IT world.

comment Windows 7 Media Player and Codecs
I recognize that and I feel made a succinct point that such is not the case nor is it going to BE the case. Codec or not, some types of files will play better in other players. I did not specify Classic except as in a general note. You will also find other files will really only properly play in the player they include with various Codec Packs like the CCCP with the Zoom Player for MKV files. You over inferred from what I said.

comment Windows 7 Media Player and Codecs
Even with proper codecs I have seen more than one file that worked better in the "Classic" Player that it came with. I'd say if you find one it works ok in that's your "solution".

comment Wiring my own RJ45 sockets - issues with a paticular outlet not negotiating at 1GB
This is definitely the correct kind of cable but I have never heard the solid core description before. Perhaps I just learned something :) Aside from that though yes you have the right stuff. The cable is composed of 4 pairs of cables twisted together in either a shielded or unshielded sheath.

comment Dell Bluetooth driver - Invalid DFU file format
Yes it certainly does appear to be the same driver. I'd say get me those Hardware IDs and let's see if we can look it up directly. And again make sure all the chipset and MB drivers are in or I could easily see this driver failing due to a "dependancy"

As for solid core??? Surely don't mean COAX?? The type of cable this type of jack is for would NOT be solid core (at least I've never heard it referred to that way) it's twisted pair. Solid Core "sounds" like COAX or some other similar type.

comment Can a vm be a reliable test machine?
We use them extremely frequently for my developers. I won't say you will NEVER run into an issue that was based in the VM vs a physical machine but that is a simple reality for today's world.

comment Fixing sticky keyboard keys
Seriously, unless there is something obnoxiously special about this keyboard (in which case that should have been noted to start) then stop wasting your time dealing with an FRU. Replace and move on. Even if there IS something special about this keyboard, unless a like replacement is gunna be exorbitant or you are just THAT broke, replace it and stop wasting your time here :)
