If it is a legal copy of Windows 8 then call Microsoft and have them help you through it.

You could also use Todo Backup Free.

no I was thinking more along the lines of Acronis True Image 2014. It will allow you to backup the drive as an image file. Then restore to the SSD using the same image file.

You could reinstall on the SSD. Or you could use a program like Acronis.

comment Is this a hijack?
It sounds like you have some sort of browser hijacker on your machine, or some other malware, which is redirecting you through the searchpage.com website

Slave that hard drive to a new machine that isn't running Windows XP. Then copy over your information.

IMO, it is time to upgrade. I would recommend not using Windows XP anymore. Especially if it is connected to the Internet.

comment Does this Motherboard support 2 Graphics Cards
Oh yeah definitely. Just make sure you purchase the correct PSU (right form factor, same motherboard connections, and correct/enough power connections).

How about a remote desktop connection? If you don't want wires then connect wirelessly.

comment Ethernet/8P8C crimp contacts bent
What kind of crimping tool are you using? I have never had a problem with the contacts bending to the side. Most RJ45 crimping tools push the contacts in evenly. Your picture is anything but.

comment Wi-Fi Driver on Dell N4050?
Does the wireless work? If so why would you even need to install a newer driver? If it isn't broken don't fix it.

comment Clone Windows 3.11 Hard Drive
@ChrisInEdmonton, I don't think it is the hard drive that is causing the BSOD. But, in case the HD is experiencing issues, I want have a good working backup drive. Down time is critical with production machines.

Wouldn't installing a fresh copy of 3.11 take care of the unique ID?

comment Clone Windows 3.11 Hard Drive
No, that wouldn't be possible for this situation. The machine uses a lot of old custom expansion cards in order to communicate with the machine. Also, the motherboard is custom as well. I wouldn't be able to plug a newer PC into it.

comment Sony Vaio RAM Upgrade
Try it and see if it works. Some motherboards are finiky about different RAM sticks and others are not. it shouldn't hurt anything to try. But, just because you install it and it doesn't cause a problem doesn't mean it is using it. Go to Control Panel >> System and see how much installed memory is listed.

comment How can I use excel to create a multiple IF function?
You can put the formula field in the A,B,C column if you specify a range instead of just a column like so: =SUMIFS(C1:C31, A1:A31, "September", B1:B31, "Enterprise"). Just make sure to put your formula below row 31.

comment What is the best way to disable all internet abilities on a laptop?
+1 Very nice answer, I completely forgot that it can be controlled by most BIOS. I believe you can disable USB ports via the BIOS as well.

You can open the nfo file directly via notepad and edit the title without having to use any other program
