comment How to get a triple monitor setup for my Vaio?
ExpressCards use internal USB 2.0 or PCI-Ex1 connection while PCMCIA cards use their own bus system which is similar to PCI. Anyway, they are incompatible and I think that PCMCIA doesn't offer any advantages over say USB video cards (unless you happen not to have a USB port). There are some external ExpressCars video cards, but they too are a bit rare and unusual.

comment Is it possible to download Visual Studio 2010 Updates?
I think that microsoft doesn't provide such an option. There may be other programs that can download updates and provide packages which could be easier to install, but I can't recommend anything right now as haven't used one in very long time.

comment Is it possible to download Visual Studio 2010 Updates?
Yes. When they show up in windows update, carefully analyze the screen. You'll have option like find out more about this update. When you click on it, you'll go to the update's site from which you can download it.

comment Will upgrading my laptop's wireless card make it support 802.11n?
There's always option to get a miniPCI or miniPCIe card with the adapter.

comment Two instances of one computer
I know that there was software for windows that could do this but I don't remember the name, and I know that it is possible under GNU/Linux and some Unix systems.

comment Two instances of one computer
But wouldn't the physical and virtual machine share same keyboard and mouse? I know that when you connect several mice to a computer, they all appear as same pointer. Same for keyboards too.

comment How to solve extreme DPC latency peaks (240.000µs)
Try with LatencyMon and post its results. It's most likely a driver problem, but this should help you narrow it down.

comment AMD 6700 video card powers monitor through DP to HDMI adapter but not 3 simultaneous monitors
Are you sure that 6700 can actually drive 3 monitors? Most "consumer" cards I've seen in the last few years can only provide output for 2 monitors at the same time.

comment CPU monitoring: hyper threading, current clock speed
@David Schwartz How would you detect if a program is running on a real or a virtual core? If you have the ability to manually assign your process to a particular core, you'd definitely want not to have it running on a real core and that core's virtual core. Also note that the "virtual" cores are also real physical objects that can be touched because they do have circuitry on the CPU itself (but that is irrelevant because even if it were not so, a program can't go outside of the computer and base its ability to see if it's on real or virtual core by determining if it can touch the core or not).

@Michael Kohne From where did you get the idea that some special irons are needed for lead-free soldering?

comment CPU monitoring: hyper threading, current clock speed
Intel CPUs are always using Hyper-threading and as far as I know, there's no way to see which is real core and which is virtual inside of the operating system. As for frequency, I'd give CPU-Z a shot. It should be able to detect frequency of each core independently and tell you which is running at which frequency.

comment invincible laptop motherboard solder
It could be that the joint is covered in some particularly strong conformal coating that is actually solder-proof. Some time ago, I was trying to unsolder wires form a computer microphone and I used 80 W soldering iron at 400 C for maybe 30 minutes on the joint and I still couldn't remove the solder. I tried sanding the stuff away, but I couldn't even scratch it. I think that they ought to paint tanks with that stuff. :)

comment Windows 7 computer: Can I exchange the SATA cables of two drives without needing to re-install Windows?
Actually, while SATA officially supports hot-swapping, very large number of PC motherboards does not implement hot-swapping support.

comment SSD upgraded: Windows boot up on 8 seconds, but BIOS need more than 15 seconds. What should I do?
@bamboon They are there because of tradition and not because of any specific reason for them to be there. BIOS memory check won't actually detect any major memory errors and there's no absolutely point of running it at ever boot in a non-critical system. Even so, the fast-boot options don't disable the checks, instead the checks are run at every n boots, where n depends on BIOS settings which are often not visible to user. .

@MahanGM If you have a reason to be paranoid about open ports, take a look at this. You'll be able to use that site to check for open ports on your system and see if there are any other which could be interesting.

Just be sure to format the drive as FAT 16 or FAT32. Most BIOSes only work with them.

comment Why am I always redirected to ad websites?
Open run in start menu and type cmd there. Note the path on the left. Go to that directory using windows explorer. After that type tracert www.microsoft.com > tracert.txt in cmd (feel free to replace microsoft with some other website that's not working) and wait for a while until you get the prompt back (if nothing happens for say 5 minutes, press enter in CMD). A file called tracert.txt will appear in the directory you're in in Windows Explorer. Post the contents here. We'll be able to see if the problem is in browser or if the virus is hijacking DNS.

comment Should uploading a file on DSL kill the download speed?
Wow! 22.5 download to upload ratio!!! I'd avoid anything that's greater than 16 specifically because of what you're experiencing right now (and even 16 is a bit too much).
