comment In yum, what is presto?
Only in a geek community could you ask a question like this without people questioning your sanity. ;-) I have no idea what you are asking, but my first instinct was to open up the question so I could find out what yum and presto are. Sure enough there are several excellent answers with links to explain both.

comment Visual Studio 2005 uninstall problem
Some of your projects will require changes to build in VS 2010. This can be difficult in some cases. In many others it's easy. If you have a large base of source code projects then you may want to keep both versions on the PC. I would certainly keep them both there until you determine that all your projects convert, build and run properly in VS 2010.

comment How to use part of a file name as a link within a word document
Can you provide some more detail about what you are trying to do? To what do you want to link? Do you just want to extract the information before the hyphen in the file name and show that as text in the document?

comment Acer Aspire 5719 with Windows XP does not boot
Well, I'm surprised. It's almost always the hard drive that fails, not the PC. Still that's good news for the information on the drive. You've now gone beyond my simple skills. It seems there is some sort of fault on the mother board or on something connected to it. I think you better have someone experienced look at it.

You could try asking on doctype.com. This is more along their lines than superuser.

comment How to prevent Spell checking code in MS Office?
I do this too. If you assign a key sequence like Alt-4 to apply the style then markup is very quick. Select the block of text and press Alt-4.

comment Changing filesystem types “safely”
"Windows 95 ... would ... change it to FAT32 non-destructively (most of the time)" made me laugh. Most of the time is such a great description of Windows 95. Most of the time it didn't crash (if you rebooted once a day). Most of the time networking would work. Most of the time...

You can buy external adaptors - google external SATA adaptor for some sources. However, if the drive has failed this won't help. Since that's the most likely cause I'd start by visiting a repair shop. They likely have an adaptor they can test your drive with. And they can give you better advice by having a look at the PC and doing some tests.
