comment I tried installing IE11, but it seems to be corrupted.
I have Windows 7 and yes, I believe IE9 was preinstalled on it. I tried uninstalling it at one time in the past but now I need it back for work reasons.

comment A DVD autostarts on my laptop and runs but not on my desktop
Thanks! There's the default "ask me everytime" option, the take no action option, open folder to view files in Windows Explorer as well as import pictures and video on DropBox. There's no open to Run a "DVD Movie". Very odd.

comment Fuzzy section on laptop screen
Could it be something more serious if it happens to the entirety ofmy screen? It just did tonight. I shut it down via holding down the power button then powered it back on several minutes later. The screen is clear after that.

comment Any reason why Chrome would be loading pages much slower than Firefox?
Only had a few extentions in Chrome and deleted them then restarted Chrome. It seemed to have helped and I didn't clear the cache but will do that if something like this arises again, thanks @lamb.

comment How vibration sensitive are hard disk drives?
Sounds like a good idea. I would use something like this: itapestore.com/velcrocoins-5815sets-black.aspx instead of the double sided tape.

comment Frequency of running chkdsk for a Win7 machine
@sam I've only seen this chkdsk prompt today. The only other times I've seen it was on request and that was several months ago. I bypassed it but maybe i shouldn't have? I'm running windows7. I have held the power button in recently which may have been the cause of this prompt. And lastly, true why was it downvoted? I think my question seems legit.
