fsck will dismount the filesystem, thus invalidating the /dev reference, one supposes.

comment keyboard issues with refurbished HP
You might have an incorrect keyboard layout set in the operating system. That's a software problem, and not anything to do with drivers or hardware. See msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/goglobal/…

comment Adblock Plus doesn't block Google ads. How to enable?
This answer amounts to little more than ill-informed slander. Slander is more akin to "criminal" action than anything AdBlock Plus does.

comment Have issue accessing Google Chrome from Windows 8: Explorer cannot then locate DEFAULT folder: any answers, please?
I suggest that anyone who can't find a directory using Windows Explorer is not going to be able to use a command line, or even know what that is.

"Slow", compared to what?

comment is there any relation between dpi setting and display resolution?
If you have a monitor with 1280x1024 pixels, then any image that fills the screen will be a 1280x1024 image. It is a lie to call a 800x600 image that has been scaled up to 1280x1024 pixels a 800x600 image, no matter how many people repeat the lie.

comment is there any relation between dpi setting and display resolution?
If Windows is ignorant of display size, then it is willful ignorance. The EDID which every display device is supposed to provide has fields for H. and V. physical dimensions of the screen, from which actual DPI is readily derived. Setting Windows DPI to the physical reality will often simply break the displayed image in many ways. Window's treatment of DPI is a linguistic and logical abomination.

comment So I disabled the Application Information service
The AppInfo service is the thing in Windows that handles elevation requests, when UAC is turned on. You'll need to somehow turn UAC off or reenable the service or use the built-in Admin account. Maybe from a WINPE-based rescue cd?

comment How can I delete a symbolic link?
That blog confuses the meaning of "Target", which is the actual directory the link points to, and which folks generally wish to avoid deleting whilst removing the link.

comment Website is securely not secure
There is no single meaning of the word "secure", so anyone asking if something has that attribute needs to specify exactly what they mean. The two Firefox dialogs are using the term differently: the exclamation mark is referring to unencrypted content requests, whereas the shield is part of Firefox's "Tracking Protection" feature, and is referring to items that Mozilla has judged to be known trackers.
