Google searches through indices stored in RAM, not through files on a hard drive.

comment How can I fix my D-Link wireless router so it doesn't need constant resetting?
I'm actually still able to connect to the router. It seems to be a problem in the router handling its connection to the internet.

normally, the modem's lights are still on, and when I directly plug a laptop into the modem (and reset the modem) it connects, while the router still doesn't work.

"But if you connect a laptop to an ethernet plug on the router" Do you mean directly to the modem?

comment After installing another version of Windows 7, what should I do to refresh my computer?
Is there such a big difference inherently between the C & D drives? I had more free space on the D drive, so I re-installed Windows there, but didn't yet delete the original windows installation. I have everything backed-up on an external drive, but I already installed a couple of programs on the new installation. Should I really get rid of it just to install it again on the C-drive? Thanks!

comment Windows Laptop not directly waking up from sleep and hibernation
Its basically the same issue for both. It used to just be a problem for sleep, but now it also affects hibernation.

I once had some issues with the ATI graphics card, I don't know if there's any connection.

No, regular hard drive. I suspected my SD card may have been causing issues, so I removed it. (Didn't do anything to its drivers though).
