comment Incredibly slow computer but without obvious cause
Sorry, I didn't explain clearly. I was never able to determine if a bad CD had caused the problem, it was just supposed to be the most likely cause. The problem was that the machine dropped into PIO mode and never went back to proper DMA mode. The solution, if I remember correctly, was to remove the HD from the device manager list (scary!) then reboot the machine.

Thanks, John - my son used the MS article suggested by Molly, so he didn't get a chance to try your solution.

@Arjan - not websites but desktop data entry screens.

comment Small monitor form for 1280x1024 resolution
Why do I ask? I've got a netbook and it would be nice to have a small, light monitor I could use as a second screen. Most of my work for clients involves 1280x1024 and I use the netbook as a portable development machine - but I have to lug along a 17" monitor.
