comment Add a new partition to Windows
some free software to resize a partition will do it. not sure which. the idea is resize the partition to make it smaller then you'll have room to create a new one.

comment Computer hard-rebooting when using Windows, but the BIOS works
I have heard of restarts not appearing in event log though, a power fault might do it like a bad power supply..other than that, perhaps, as mentioned, perhaps ram or cpu.

comment Computer hard-rebooting when using Windows, but the BIOS works
have you turned off automatic restart? like, xp has an automatic restart option you can turn off, maybe if you turn it off you'll see a blue screen. Maybe there are things in your event log. In XP at least, look for red xs, and then if I recall, look for exclamation marks. I think I might've had a CD drive related thing give an exclamation mark in an event log(application or system i'm not sure), and I found that might've happened at the same time as a restart and I addressed that. maybe stopping a service related to it or something. a strange problem but anyhow, look more in the event log.

comment Saving .doc file to .docx file in word 2007 losing the bullet list
@HellScream even your comment is badly written and unreadable, you've actually confused things. Maybe you did deserve -1. His question is doc to docx, and zamzar does that. So despite your comment, your answer would apply to that.

comment Saving .doc file to .docx file in word 2007 losing the bullet list
Yes, and I think he should've written the word zamzar in his post. And mentioned what it does. Not just for the sake of the original poster, but for others. Pretty bad answer considering how simple it was to give. But as a solution to this simple problem it's reasonable. But he should also have said some alternative routes covering if it doesn't work, instead of "tell me if this doesn't work".

+1 to remove the -1. you're right he can try converting it through zamzar or through youconvertit and see if it retained the bullet points.

dude, if you opened it in Word 2007 and the bullet points were still there, and you lost them when saving it as docx, then save it as something else and see if they are retained.

comment Adding DDR2 1066MHz to DDR2 800MHz memory
Quality is a silly word though which the OP used to describe RAM speed. 6GB is so much RAM, that maybe less like 4GB, but more MHz may be more beneficial? Also with your second paragraph, if the majority of the time 4GB isn't consumed, then I suppose it'd follow that he'd be best off with 4GB of faster RAM. Though if frequently 4GB is consumed, then I suppose he might want the 6GB slower RAM.

that just links to support pages. I went to some, I see firmware updates and manuals. And the page mentions the generic DOS driver. I don't see links to windows drivers for any cd drives.

maybe it's the SCSI aspect of it that is the issue 'cos any CD drives i've ever used have not needed drivers.
