comment New memory not working on Windows 7!
After a little more stress testing it turns out, as you suggested, that one of the memory sticks was defective. It might just have needed a little of extra time to complete its stress test, but this morning I came in to find a BSoD waiting for me. I clearly narrowed it down to one defective memory stick, so I guess the answer points should belong to you... :)

comment New memory not working on Windows 7!
@Axidos - totally weird. I'm sure I tried this before, but I decided to try again: I put my new memory in the yellow channels and the old in the red channels. Now my system is working perfectly - with 8GB! The only difference from before is that previously I had the memory sticks in the opposite colored slots i.e. old in yellow, new in red... not sure why that's make a difference. So seeing as your is the suggestion that seems to have made the difference, you get the answer credit! Maybe now you can leave comments! ;)

I started up the system with the new memory in place of the old, and it worked fine.

comment New memory not working on Windows 7!
@Shinrai - my new memory is 800 MHz, old memory is 400 MHz. The packaging of the new memory (which they didn't advertise on the online store!) says compatible with 533, 667 and 800 Mhz. But If it's a compatibility issue, why was I able to start up into safe mode?

Ha - I have a dual boot and I made this screen dump from XP. Sorry, I'll update the screen shot.

comment Can I boot up into an existing virtual machine?
+1 - thanks for the suggestion, EasyBCD does work... but when I start up into the VHD, the Windows 7 startup screen appears, then freezes, flickers onto a BSoD, then the computer reboots again. Bottom line, I cannto boot into the VHD. Any idea how to fix that?

Thanks for the link. It all appears to be for new VHDs, though. Is there a way to boot into an existing VHD that I've been using under Hyper-V?

comment How to get Word 2003 to make my print layout go from left to right?
I think you may have misunderstood my question: for me the text also flows correctly from left to right. But if I have more than one page and I try to view the pages side-by-side in "print layout", page 1 appears to the right of page 2 instead of to the left. That's the only problem.

comment Load balancing router can't connect to VPN
+1 not exactly what I'm looking for, but as a result of looking for the settings you described I did find some kind of secret switch which I'll describe in my own answer.

I tried ooVoo a while back. It has a very annoying interface, much too noisy, huge time lag, unreliable service. I uninstalled it in disgust.

+1 Nice! Looks like they're set to bury GoToMeeting... same price, but with videoconferencing! Bit of a no-brainer, isn't it?
