comment System and Interrupts causing high CPU
@muntoo Also, once you start recording, switch to drivers tab and show us what is happening there. It should show us exactly which drivers are taking most time to do their processing.

comment System and Interrupts causing high CPU
@muntoo OK. Did you try getting the newest driver for your netwoerk card from its chipset manufacturer? Which network card do you have? Check in device manager any options for hardware processing and work off-load and experiment with them. In general, having card do as much processing as possible should speed things up, but you should try turning some of the options off too, in case something isn't working correctly at the cards side. Also, post image of available settings in device manager for it.

comment What is the “real” memory of my display graphics card?
Integrated RAMDAC= Random Access Memory Digital-to-Analog Converter. It's a piece of hardware which produces analog signal which drives analog monitors. Integrated in this case should not be a problem. Integrated RAMDACs have been the norm for quite a while.

comment iMac fan is constantly spinning
Shouldn't those batteries last years? Clock batteries are usually lithium cells and it's not rare to see them hold charge for 5-8 years with no problems, sometimes even more. If it's dead, it could be a sign of a bigger problem hiding somewhere.

comment iMac fan is constantly spinning
I'm not sure. Maybe this program may help? Since it's less than a year old, it shouldn't be overheating that much, but that would depend on the amount of dust in the area. Anyway, try that program and post temperatures.

comment iMac fan is constantly spinning
How old is the computer and when was the fan cleaned last time? What are the system temperatures? Did you physically move the computer?

comment Laptop GAINS time, why?
Are just hours wrong or are minutes and seconds problem too (only hours cold indicate time-zone switching problems)? Check your time synchronization settings, it could happen that the computer is connecting to a bad time server. If the RTC itself is bad, you'd probably get much smaller problems with time, unless it's very damaged.

comment Will my TV block my wireless router signal?
I'd say probably yes. I wouldn't be surprised if the TV has lots of internal shielding which could block the signal from the router. I've seen some TVs which had shielding all around the back of the screen and that could be a problem for WiFi signal.

comment Force application to run in 32-bit process on 64-bit Windows
Some programs may use a loader which will start a 64 bit or 32 bit executable and such loaders might be tricked to start the 32 bit version on 64 bit Windows. Furthermore interpreted and JIT-compiled programs might be able to trick system into using 32 bit interpreter/compiler with cerian settings, even if 64bit is available.

comment Why is my RAM is not fully used in Windows?
It could be that motherboard can't address all RAM due to chip configuration. Make sure that the RAM is actually supported by your computer (this can happen even in 64bit operating systems).

@techie007 I'm running the readiness tool now. How would I use the process monitor? The problematic part seems to happen before I get user interface.

For more information, refer to the help for the /FeatureName: option. The DISM log file can be found at C:\Windows\Logs\DISM\dism.log `

comment Can't install Hyper-V on Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise:Stuck in installation loop
@techie007 I have 3 other OSes installed on other drives on this computer and virtual machines on them run fine (even those that need hardware virtualization). All drivers are newest and disk an filesystem are fine. I tried reinstalling the win 2008 and it didn't help, but read my previous comment. Since I already have a partition table, I don't know how to make windows make the 100 MB partition (I could remove one of the GNU/Linux swap partitions to make room).

comment Can't install Hyper-V on Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise:Stuck in installation loop
@techie007 Related thread here. I don't have the 100 meg system partition here on this setup and I'm not sure I could easily add it. Any ideas on that?

@techie007 No. It's a clean install with just the drivers.
