comment How to debug why 3rd DVI monitor isn't working
In your Device Manager, do you see both the ATI and IG listed and are both working properly? If not then you may want to upgrade your BIOS/check your BIOS. If you do see them, then go into your Windows Monitor/Resolution changer thingy and see if the third monitor is displayed there. Is there a reason why you're not using the Display Port on the ATI. This card does support 3 monitors (i know cause i'm using the same thing)

comment How to debug why 3rd DVI monitor isn't working
This really is not true. I have yet to come across a PCI-E 16x mobo with integrated graphics that would not allow both onboard graphics and PCIE graphics to be enabled at the same time. I've set up several 3+ monitor setups like this and never had an issue.

You would have to do it from booting the DVD. But then under Disk Utility, he's basically saying to format the system partition

click on the menu button and scroll through the settings. Without a model number specifically, it's difficult to say.

comment What is the effect of a motherboard that shares bandwidth between PCIe 8X and PICe 16x slots?
it really depends on how your motherboard spreads out the bandwidth. If your primary PCIE16 is dedicated and not sharing the bandwidth of the other ports then you wouldn't see any difference. Since you're not pairing the cards, I doubt you would notice any performance gains/loss either way.

comment Is there any way to turn down the fan speed on a Dell T7500?
Have you updated your BIOS? This could also be a setting in your BIOS to control the fan speed. I would not look into any third party app because it will only help you once Windows is loaded. I would see if you're missing something within the BIOS.

Okay. This sounds similar to what USB does. If you have a USB HDD then you can get a potential 60MB/s. However, if you have two USB HDDs then you still get 60MB/s on each, but they have a shared bandwidth of 60MB/s. So if you're using both devices, the transfer rate of both devices combined is 60MB/s.

comment What can I do about a repeatedly dropping wireless connection?
Do you have any other wireless devices that are causing this issue? Is this a home network or does this occur on any network. You may have a channel conflict issue. If you have a cordless phone that is using the same channel/frequency as your wireless router then this could cause the problem. Or, if there are many people around your home that are using the same channel then it could cause connectivity issues. If this happens on many different wireless networks then update drivers/chipset/firmware.

37 isn't horrible for a primary drive. However, I wouldn't like seeing it get much more over that. It is a laptop afterall. They don't have the best airflow.

Try to stay away from the glitter sharpies and oilbased sharpies. CD Drives do not like to be bedazzled & glittered!

comment Windows 7 Upgrade keeps rolling back to Vista
You may be right Ramhound, but obviously it's not successful for everyone. The hundreds of computers that you speak of may all be similar in the sense that they do not have the conflicting driver/hardware. I've never had issues with my computers with upgrading, but I do understand that many people will go several years without maintaining their hardware/software and can/will lead to failed upgrades.
