comment Where do third-party icons appear in Windows 7 Control Panel
It's possible for items to appear in multiple categories. So the nVidia settings are also found under Appearance and Personalization.

comment Our Thomson modem/routertg585v7 is struggling with the amount of gadgets in the house
It should be able to handle that many connections. What do you mean when you say it locks up? For best performance, make sure that the firmware is up to date and the router has good ventilation to prevent overheating (they can sometimes get quite hot). You could try getting a refund for the Asus router if you were given bad advice by sales staff. Alternatively it should be possible to use your Thomson router as a modem and connect it to the Asus one - it could solve your problems but it may not be that straightforward to do.

comment How is shuffling done by various music players
The whole point is that if it is supposed to be 'random' then you shouldn't really be able to tell what algorithm is used unless you get the source code or ask the developer. There are open source media players of course. But a quick Google reveals something like this is very commonly used: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fisher-Yates_shuffle

comment Laptop is asking for password (which I never set), even when without hard-drive
@deathlock: Can you check that it still occurs when you put the hard drive back in? Are you sure that nobody has been tampering with your laptop and the virus was a result?

comment Changing the default power button action to Disconnect in a remote desktop session
@Windos: It depends on the specific version of Windows. For instance, if I open an RDP session to Windows Server 2008 terminal services the "power" button on the Start menu shuts down the computer. On Windows 2003 there is a shutdown button and a log off button. Maybe this is not the same on desktop Windows versions but I still don't see the point in using the Start menu over the 'x' button at the top.

comment How can I install a desktop 3.5" SATA drive on a laptop without any adapters and use it as the main(system) drive?
The fact is that there is no way it can possibly fit in your laptop. You might be able to use some convoluted workaround but you'll be wasting time/money and losing portability when you could just return or sell the 3.5" drive and buy a 2.5" one.
