comment new video card only works for a few minutes
Wouldn't that be AMD/ATI Catalyst drivers? Also, make sure you get the latest drivers. I had similar issues on GNU/Linux with badly installed drivers.

comment Windows XP 32 bit shows only 2.98GB or RAM instead of 3.2
@Altar: I think that this answer is correct. Just in case, get a 64bit live CD (for example Ubuntu), boot it and see how much RAM it reports.

Tell us how you connect to Internet. Do you use LAN, WiFi, fax-modem, something else...

comment How long will it be before Apple develops iTunes for Linux OS?
Also Apple is bushing its own Unix, so as far as I can see, they have nothing to profit by making iTunes compatible with Linux which is dangerously similar to Mac OS X

comment How difficult is it to trace a canadian dynamic IP?
I don't think that cable modem is making it any more difficult. And remember, modem's MAC can be traced too! And it's unique to the device.

comment my keyboard is showing wrong charecters on screen
@Jens No, it's not! IT'S GREAT! Do you really want to know how big pain it is to press shift+alt+x on for example Ubutu if you hve to change layout very often? There should actually be an easy way to disable it for those who don't need the feature and M$'s programs shouldn't install new layouts without asking users. I for example installedOoffice and magically got all CJK installed.

@knweiss Yeah, that's right. I just looked it up!

comment Laptop backlight intermittently working
If your backlight is trivially accessible, then you could go ahead. There is a chance that the backlight is integrated into the screen and that you might need to disassemble screen to access the backlight. The process isn't very complex, but is assembling LCD screens is, in my experience at least very very difficult. They are extremely fragile and can very easily brake.

comment Triple monitor?
@ Shiki OK, thanks. But a simple PCI card should work for simple display, right? Also, you can use two cards without SLI/Crossfire. I also heard rumor, but never tested it myself, that you can't use more monitors than one card supports on SLI.

comment my keyboard is showing wrong charecters on screen
No additional software needed. You'll get in Text services and input languages a list of installed layouts. You'll also have add and remove buttons and default drop-down menu. Simply select US as default and use remove button to remove unnecessary layouts. Next time you start your computer, it'll use US layout. If you don't have US layout, use add to add English United States. You may have several options, but there should be one which will say just US. Select that one.

comment Triple monitor?
Can you give me a source discussing need for motherboard compatibility with multiple discrete graphics cards? This is the first time I heard of it. Until now, I always thought that only thing needed was a slot in which you would put the card.
