I'm an electrical engineer currently working as a software engineer and developer. Prior to that, I was a computer tech for 6 months at a independently owned computer store while I looked for an actual engineering job.

I'm a big gamer, with a lot of it taking place on the PC, but I also own a 360 and PS3.

comment Windows computer keeps updating to UTC time
I have a feeling that Mint was treating the system clock as UTC, updating it accordingly, yet still displaying Mountain Time to you.

comment Full Screen Video on Extended Desktop
Just remember, tooling around in a binary file is dangerous at best. If you try this, make sure that you backup the files first so that if Something Bad(TM) happens, you can get your old functionality back.

comment howo to uninstall ubuntu9.10 and get rid of dual boot?
The Ubuntu installer is smart enough to modify the current Grub setup (or completely overwrite it) so that all existing OS installations will show up in the Grub list.

comment how is nvidia 3d vision achieved exactly
I would still call NVidia, as they may be able to do something for you, but this lies outside the scope of 3D Vision for home users. Beyond the information I've already given, there isn't much more I can do.

So you're still using your existing glasses and sync transmitter? In that case, you're probably looking at a call to NVidia to see if you can get your existing hardware to work with their software. In the meantime, make sure that you have the NVidia 3D software installed. A download is available from their site.

Your application needs to tell the GPU that it needs 3D mode and the GPU will tell the monitor to enter 3D mode. Can you get any content to render in 3D, such as the stuff that came with the 3D kit?

comment How do I select all text from a file with nano?
Are you in a command line only environment? If not, why don't you open the file in something like gedit?

comment Whenever I attempt to copy a large number of files to my external hard drive, a blue-screen of death pops up. Is my hard drive fried?
Have you tried copying only a portion of the files at a time? Does it always BSOD on the same file?

comment Need to connect laptop to an analog TV
If the Dell has any sort of secondary video out, it should be rather trivial to throw it onto an S-Video, composite, or component cable with the right adapter. Audio is as easy as picking up a stereo headphones to RCA adapter.

Um, SetPoint is Logitech software, not Microsoft. Did you mean IntelliType?
