comment Can't change text color in Microsoft Word 2010
@gry Regular paragraph text. I haven't attempted any text boxes. I am able to change the text size and any other aspect of the text. I will try to save the file as HTML, etc. tomorrow.

@gry This happens to all files, both new and old. I've tried typing text manually, but not pasting it in.

comment Good, lightweight GUI-based process monitor for Linux
@MahmoudAl-Qudsi Technically, yes, you are correct. However, you might need to reconsider your soft skills. On a site like SuperUser (or in any context in Meatspace), cultural context appears to have shifted quite some time ago. If someone asks for a "GUI Tool" in the 21st century, ncurses, while technically correct, is likely not a successful answer. I've removed my downvote (as if arbitrary numbers mean anything in real life). =)

comment Good, lightweight GUI-based process monitor for Linux
@MahmoudAl-Qudsi Yes, htop can kill a process. I got confused with top - however, concerning the word GUI - you keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.

@Grawity I got confuzzled between top and htop

comment Good, lightweight GUI-based process monitor for Linux
-1 for pointless soapboxing. +1 for offering a different option. -1 for that option not doing what the OP wanted (integrated ablity to kill processes)

comment Windows won't release lock on drive tray after burning a disc
Knowing that you changed from IDE to RAID intrigues me. I'm now suspicious that perhaps Windows is not properly interfacing with the ATAPI CD-Drive. Switching from IDE to RAID/AHCI could have caused issues with the Windows drivers for ATAPI.

I doubt that would make a difference, however changing to AHCI will break your RAID set, so don't do that unless you're prepared for data loss. It will also require some changes to Windows. Search around for RAID-to-AHCI information such as: answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_7-hardware/…

comment Windows won't release lock on drive tray after burning a disc
@sidran32 In my understanding, no, those things aren't necessarily OS agnostic. The chipsets still need to be interacted with by the OS, so the OS is still a variable factor. Perhaps Windows needs the hardware layer to have updated firmware for it to more properly interact with it. The Linux OS you tried may have been capable of interfacing with the chipset in its current state as opposed to Windows.

comment Should one keep their old graphics card installed in addition to their new?
You can't SLI different NVidia graphics cards. From Nvidia's website: Can I mix and match graphics cards that have different GPUs? No. For example, an XXXGT cannot be paired with a XXXGTX in an SLI configuration. Unless you're suggesting that he keep the one card in addition to an already existing SLI configuration?

comment Two SSIDs on one router
@Levy Yes, multiple SSIDs can exist on the same radio / channel and each network is separate, not allowing clients on one to talk to clients on the other. That is a common behavior of corporate wireless networks. At one place of work, we maintained about three to five separate wireless networks all on the same WAPs for our point of sale system.

comment Difference between x86_64 vs i386 iso files
@Mike In linux run grep flags /proc/cpuinfo and see if lm is in the list. lm mean "long mode" and implies a 64-bit CPU. Real mode means 16 bit and Protected Mode means 32-bit.

comment Difference between x86_64 vs i386 iso files
@Mike Find out what CPU you have and then search its model online. Most hardware manufactured since the mid-2000s should be 64-bit.
