comment Can i combine CL7 and CH9 RAM
If you were to add the extra 2 sticks, you would have to have them all running at 1066. Some programs will run quicker with more RAM, and some will run quicker with faster RAM. I assume you're running a 64bit version of Windows 7?

The speed is set in the BIOS and the speed and timings would be printed on a sticker the RAM itself. If you can find a model number for each type of RAM I can help that way.

2x2GB would actually be faster assuming dual channel is used.

Fair enough. In that case what laptop is it? Make/model. What CPU? What chipset?

Have you tried cleaning the dust out? Even a good hoover can make a difference (make sure you jam the fans with a paperclip first)

comment My 1440x900 resolution looks stretched
1440x900 is the native reolution so it should be fine. How are you connecting? VGA/DVI/HDMI/DP? Try just hitting the Auto button. Try disconnecting the display output and reconnecting it.

Have you looked at the options in the sync centre? We had offline files the same in 7 as we did in XP a few years back...

Do you have UAC enabled or disabled? If it's opening the command prompt then it know what it's supposed to do with it in terms of file association.
