comment How can I call off a Windows 10 upgrade?
For me, this did not help. I have tried many options and none of them worked: answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/…

comment Why do damaged hard drives freeze the entire system?
I guess, we would need async hardware with async drivers and async OS kernel to be able to show a message like "Please wait, trying to read data from your disk, and it seems to take more than expected" instead of freezing entire system.

comment Cannot set 1360x768 resolution for DVI connection; VGA works fine only if EDID is disabled
Unfortunately it is not possible to configure both resolutions in Catalyst or on the monitor itself. I can configure only Desktop resolution which I set to 1360x768 and then I expect Catalyst to pass this resolution directly to the monitor. But it does so only in VGA and only with EDID disabled. In any other mode (DVI or VGA with EDID) Catalyst takes control over both resolutions. At least now Catalyst scales to 1920x1080, but some days before it was scaling to 1400x1050 and I could not change it. Still its strange that it's impossible to set the monitor to its 1360x768 in DVI mode.

comment How to get monitor resolution of 1680x1050 using ATI Radeon HD 2600 PRO in a dual monitor setup
Unfortunately that EDID option is available only for VGA. I have a similar issue with DVI - Catalyst thinks that my monitor does not support 1360x768 and enables GPU scaling which makes everything look blurred. Only on VGA the image is crisp even at 1360x768, but I have to uncheck that EDID box, or else Catalyst GPU scaling kicks in again and makes things blurry.

The difference between DVI with GPU scaling and VGA with monitor scaling is noticeable, even I with my poor vision see the blurryness when GPU scaling kicks in. 1366x768 is different and it is not officially supported on my monitor. I can set it in desktop properties, but my monitor always reports 1360x768, as expected from its specifications. Both 1360x768 and 1366x768 are specified in WXGA standard: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/…

comment Can multiple Windows 7 Enterprise PCs use the same product key?
The problem is with predetermined number of allowed activations; this number is based on Volume Licensing agreements. I have MSDN BizSpark subscription and I can't find the limit of my Windows 10 MAK key anywhere. I've read that for MAK keys even reinstalling on the same PC with the same hardware affects the remaining activations count, while Retail keys can be activated without limits on the same hardware, but I'm not sure if this is true. I guess, time will tell - if MAK key stops working, I can use the Retail one. Or vice versa.
