comment SLI bridge vs powerful GPU?
There are some good articles if you search> I looked into this myself some time ago. You can get a little more performance with two cards (bench mark noticeable in some instances, visibly noticeable in other instances...all depends on what cards you use)...but what exactly is "Mid level" these days? or days to come for that matter. Todays high performance is tomorrows mid level.

comment Is this hard drive salvageable at all?
There are no gears in the HDD. What you may be hearing is contact of the reader head and the platter. Does it show up under disk management?(rt click Computer>manage). Minitool partition wizard has a free 1 gig recovery from their free version. or it can try and copy the partition to a good drive if the old one is detected. Otherwise, a professional and costly recover would be an option if the data is that important.

comment What is a fail-proof way to finally set-up and use a printer over the network?
@zack_falcon - might be a silly question, but may as well eliminate it as a root cause. Because you have two different versions of windows are you using HOMEGROUP or WROKGROUP? it seems with different versions of windows you have to be sure all computers on your network are in the same WORK GROUP. Same versions of windows can use home group.

comment What is this “Default Profile”?
@Ramhound - It is in fact my wife's home laptop. The default profile is present if I go to C:\Users as well, just never noticed it before. Here it is accessible, but grey in contrast to the other account.

comment Windows XP mode sticks on “Checking for the latest updates for your computer” forever
What is "this" and "this"? When you suggest to install something, you should add some details as to what it is. Link only stuff is, well, not a preferred method here. Give some detail.

comment Workaround for iPhone error: This App Requires iOS 7.0 or Later
I think a bit off topic as far as computer hardware and software is concerned here on SU. Maybe this should be voted to another site.

comment Why system RAM can not have a battery backup in the same way as a CMOS?
@DoktoroReichard - agreed. My point was that there was independent powered volatile RAM concepts in the market place, but indeed, this is a ram disk.

This is not a new concept an older item that never really took hold (cost prohibitive and small GiB size) is an item from Acard forums.techarena.in/motherboard-processor-ram/1125600.htm
