comment Network card names (eth0, eth1) missing after replacing the motherboard
try something like grep firmware /var/log/dmesg or grep firmware /var/log/kern.log.

If the above doesn't work, look carefully in /var/log/dmesg or at the boot text of your system. Your NIC may be recognized but a non-free firmware file may be needed for it to actually show up and function. May be the case if it's certain types of Intel cards or others (like tg3).

comment run a computer without RAM?
See edits. The kernel paging in swapped memory is not different than a program loading or a program reading/writing to disk. It just happens within the kernel and behind the scenes of a user process, but not behind the scenes of the kernel.

What OS? Could this be an issue of a 32-bit plugin or codec not working on a 64-bit browser?

comment Excel Refusing to Do Any Sorting after 524,161 rows of data
524,161 sounds like 512K rows, may be a hardcoded limit. Try 64-bit Excel. It's probably not a RAM issue, but possibly some deal with 32-bit integers in Excel.

comment reinstalling Outlook 2010 - how do I point outlook to the pst without setting up a new email acct?
You don't have to set up an account, it gives you an option to "Continue without email support." Off the top of my head, I think you can go to the Control Panel, then Mail, and set up the .pst there.
