comment Dual boot new laptop win 7 / ubuntu 12.04 - 750gb + 32gb SSD
I would prefer to do a fresh install of windows 7 (which it came with.) HP likes to throw in a bunch of spyware / bloat. I'm also wondering how I'm going to get the drivers - the new thing is to force users to use a 'driver suite' which basically installs bloat / runs unnecessary processes. Any ideas?

My windows command prompt isn't routing through my proxy the way my browser is =( It just gives me the IP of the old server if I do that

Sorry, I was hoping to not have to run an .exe... I should have specified that earlier

comment Screensaver that just disables keyboard and mouse
I suppose I could write a script to trigger windows key + L whenever mouse or keyboard action is detected. Would VBscript be best for this? My windows scripting days are long forgotten.

Yes I want to see the graphs while the lock is on. They update every few seconds - it's similar to watching stocks.

I have 3, two Sata and one IDE. The IDE is the one acting up.

I just opened the drive and clicked on a different folder, and it froze again. (After successfully opening other folders several times.)

I just restarted again and now I can access that folder by clicking on the desktop shortcut... so weird

After waiting a little while I now get the message: E:\work refers to a location that is unavailable. It could be on a hard drive on this computer, or on a network. Check to make sure that the disk is properly inserted, or that you are...

comment Hard drive sometimes not detected?
Ok this is weird. I just restarted my computer, and saw the drive in my computer. I then clicked on a shortcut on my desktop (which points to a folder on the problem drive). After clicking the shortcut, I got the spinning circle. When I open up my computer now, the drive is there but the blue bar showing available space is not shown (like it was shortly after startup). Trying to open the drive gives me a blue spinning circle (like the drive can't be found).

comment Will my computer shut down if my graphics card overheats?
I have family that lives nearby, and monitoring/alerts in place. If a fire breaks out, I would know about it and contact the fire dept within a few moments.

It wouldn't make sense for 90%+ of M$'s consumer base to buy the software!

comment Sempron 3500+ never clocking up (always at 800MHz)
It's possible that it's your power settings, bios, heat or software. My first place to start debugging would be the software.

William, is this an alternative to slipstreaming - Where someone could just make disk images and then run sysprep to load on any current hardware configuration?
