comment External speakers no longer working
But can we rule out that it is a software problem? Sometimes software problems turn up when apparently "nothing" has been changed... or the problem only showed up after reboot, a long time after the change?

So if you run an OS from a live CD, the OS never uses a page file, even it sees the HD as accessible? Just interested.

Second that. For diagnostics, try a hard drive monitor (a program that can read SMART info off your HD) to assess your HD's health. I believe Speedfan reads SMART data. Download Speedfan from almico.com: siteadvisor.com/sites/almico.com

Yes, in Holland Aldi sells all kinds of stuff in one-time offers, including cheaper electronics, sometimes even from decent brands. Depending on the offer, it can be a good deal - though you should expect queues in sleeping bags, as in Iphone launch.

comment A dot between two numbers is converted to comma
Hmm that is strange. And the other computers are also using Word in Arabic? I have three more tentative suggestions. 1. You could try uninstalling MS Office entirely, then reinstalling it. 2. I still have the feeling that this is very typical for AutoCorrect misbehaviour, but you say you looked into that already. Have you tried unchecking all the relevant boxes in AC? There might be some box that taps into another list of corrections. 3. In AC, you could set up a new "Replace 1,1 with 1.1", just to see what that does...

So you are saying that all users will still be able to use the same memory modules even if Dell changes motherboards? Well I have never bought whole PC.

comment Can't finish installation of application on Windows 2000?
I know, but the choice I have there is rebooting the PC vs. shutting down one of the non-responsive installation processes. The former includes the latter, so it is worth a try to begin with shutting down processes. I will make it extra clear that this is not an option as long as the installation is responsive.

comment Ctrl + 1 and Ctrl + 2 key combinations don't work
Hmm then something strange is happening on your PC, but you can rule out hardware. Have you tried these key combinations in Safe Mode? If they work there too, it will probably be some program that is at fault.
