comment Where is Blu-Ray on Linux
I think he's looking for a software solution integrated with something similar to Boxee or XBMC. That guide alone makes it sound like it can be challenging to play many discs.

comment Dual monitor with ATI radeon 4350
You still need video drivers installed, just not the CCC. All ATI downloads offer bundled downloads or just driver downloads. Get the latter and try Windows Display properties as Molly said.

comment 4.00GB (3.25GB usable) in Windows 7 x64
An integrated video card is the only thing I know of that would directly reserve RAM like that. The issue on a 32-bit machine is that there isn't enough memory addresses to assign to all the other devices (audio, BIOS, etc), but in 64-bit, this doesn't happen. Stick a dedicated video card in, and you should see whether it was the integrated card causing your issues.

Does the F8 menu still have the Command Prompt as a boot option now-a-days?

comment 4.00GB (3.25GB usable) in Windows 7 x64
After some more thought, I'd recommend removing 2GB RAM so you have a total of 2GB in. If i'm thinking correctly, if .75GB is really being used by the video memory or something else, 1.25GB should show usable.

comment 4.00GB (3.25GB usable) in Windows 7 x64
I agree since he has integrated graphics, this would account for part of it. But I can't imagine what else is grabbing the other half of the chunk. In 32-bit, the memory allocated to the chipset and whatnot take away from the 4GB max, but in 64-bit, this wouldn't apply. I realize a lot of this answer is irrelevant since he proved he's running 64-bit, but it's only made stranger by the fact that the problem ends up looking identical to the 32-bit/4GB problem.

This only applies if running a 32-bit operating system, since only 4GB memory is addressable between all devices. If he really is running x64, this wouldn't be the case.

comment How can I get the icon from a Windows XP application?
JMD is right in that Windows XP only used 32x32 icons. Vista introduced default 64x64 icons on the desktop with support for larger icons in explorer.

comment Why don't Microsoft show the Windows Product Key in System Information?
Also, the fact that the WinXP Pro license I originally mentioned was initially installed on 3 computers, and I'm sure the license had been used at least 5 times before it failed to reject, which is why I assumed the 5-use policy applied here also. I've never personally seen a delayed activation such as that yet.

comment Why don't Microsoft show the Windows Product Key in System Information?
Trying to activate a copy of Windows XP Professional failed a few months ago, a copy from my parents, when I know the key hasn't been used in a few years. At my work, a subscription to the Microsoft Power Pack came with 2 licenses for WinXP, each of which stated they could be activated up to 5 times, so that's what I'm going off of.

comment How do I totally get rid of Norton Utilities
Just to clarify as a side note, Windows Add/Remove panel (XP, Vista, 7) do nothing but run the uninstaller provided by the software, which is set in the registry. This is Norton purposely leaving behind components, not Windows 7 failing to remove everything.

comment Why has my graphics card disabled my on-board sound card?
The graphics card can output audio as well, since it supports HDMI, thus it needed to install audio drivers. It shouldn't have screwed up your existing audio, my Radeon 4890 had no such issues. You could try redownloading the drivers from nVidia or reinstalling from a Driver CD to see if it helps. If you can see your audio devices in device manager, and they're "Enabled", I'm not sure whats wrong here.

Have you tried reinstalling the audio drivers?

I'd first make sure you're connecting the HDMI correctly by connecting to a TV, where you don't need the conversion.

comment What firmware should I use on my router?
The 3 answers below, AFAIK, are the 3 real choices, and I'd say all 3 are equally good. I had great luck with DD-WRT in getting dead Linksys routers working again.
