comment Windows 7 x64 3.2Gb RAM usable instead of 4Gb installed
very simply, for better performance in games, you want a dedicated graphics card. 8GB will not help that much because the games simply don't use it: many of them stream data and.or precache in dedicated VRAM on the GPU add-in card.

comment Same RGB-colors looks different in same document (Office 2011 Mac)
This is called "color management profile mismatch" and is probably not broken (for example google: sRGB powerpoint problem"). The OP seems to be talking about solid fills of color applied within Powerpoint, and not placed images. This is a different beast altogether.

comment Audio/Video Doing weird things, with new Connections
can you please clarify what a "USB with things on it or nothing on it" is? I expect you mean a flash drive, but I personally have a USB printer, a usb mouse, a usb audio (guitar) interface, 2 usb gamepads, etc. Does this problem happen when hot-plugging any USB device?

comment I am unable to copy the contents of files.000 over to another computer using Windows XP SP3
a quick search suggests that "yes" .chk files (and the parent folders) are created as system files and are hidden when "protected OS files" are set to hidden.

comment I am unable to copy the contents of files.000 over to another computer using Windows XP SP3
I don't have xp handy, but isn't there a separate option for "hide operating system files" which is independent from "show hidden"? (there is in win7, but can't recall if that existed in winxp)

comment FTP connection suddenly stopped working
The servers are different, two unrelated devices can't connect. That means infrastructure: modem, router, ISP port blocking. In both FTP clients, have you tried toggling (on/or off) "FTP passive mode"?

comment FTP connection suddenly stopped working
browser-based ftp could be http with ajax etc etc. What have you done to ensure that the servers are listening on the proper port? Ar they all on one host? Have you contacted their tech support to see if they had a reboot or configuration change?

comment How do I execute 32bit games on 64bit operating system
@ChrisInEdmonton: I agree. The answer is a tech support suggestion which goes way back to the quake2/quake3 days, but the proper solution was to extract the proper opengl32.dll from the proper driver package or copy from the proper windows folder to the game folder in question. Loading untrusted DLLS from 3rd party sites is an invitation for compromised security.

comment games do not launch nor give error
also, what happens if you launch the game executable directly without the launcher? Is there a 32bit/64 bit version?
