comment Ubuntu 14.04 installer doesn't show existing partitions
Thank you, this fixed the problem for me! Two comments though: 1) fixparts requires root access so I had to run it with sudo. 2) I have multiple HDs (one SSD & one data drive) so I had to run fixparts for both sda and sdb.

comment Why is my computer really slow despite of having a considerable amount of free memory?
Are you using a 32 or 64 bit version of Windows? If you are using 64 bit OS for the first time, it may surprise you to know that you need twice the amount of RAM for comparable speeds. I would be surprised if a 64 bit version of Windows 7 even booted on only 2GB of RAM.

comment How to lock Windows 7 session with just key strokes?
It's worth mentioning that this isn't a new shortcut to Windows 7... it has been around since at least the XP days. Check out the "Windows key" Wikipedia page for other useful shortucts that use this key: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Windows_key

comment What is the icon in the bottom-left corner of Windows Media Player 12?
Maybe it enables/disables buffering? Does anybody know for sure? How could I even test this?
