comment Why does pinging 192.168.072 (only 2 dots) return a response from 192.168.0.58?
On Windows you're looking for inet_addr in Winsock.

Same problem with Windows 7 (32bit and 64bit).

This same obnoxious find is in Windows 7 as well.

comment Maximum Windows volume, laptop's bar is at 50% - how can I boost the system volume further?
Also, per some reviews of various ThinkPad Edge models, "...long battery life time but the volume is not good".

@Shinrai: Nope wasn't a loose connection. It still has the messed up device name. How very odd. But the definite cause is the digital audio being enabled coming out of standby.

@Shinrai: it is a LiteOn DVDRW drive, but now it displays as "ZBA8472 CED34892 DVD+RW", which seems odd. I don't actually recall what it used to say, but certainly not that. I'm going to unplug/replug it in when I get home today; maybe that will fix it :)

@Shinrai: I'm going to edit my answer so it doesn't seem like a dig at yours. I think your strategy is the correct one for problems like this. :)
