    Snow :(

    16 inches of snow average here around DC today, compared to the average of 1.5" this place gets for the entire month of December -.- Broke a 1932 record according to the local news.
  2. Enough with the Linux fanboyism/trolling. -.- I mean Linux is fine for many uses, but this is just too much. Anyways, you'll need an OS, motherboard, and a relatively good graphics card. On that budget with those parts it might be a little tight, getting close to $800. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16814129113 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16832116754 Not too experienced in the AMD realm so I'll leave the mobo up to someone else. You might have to compromise in order to achieve $700 total.

    Windows Xp Themes

    http://www.askvg.com/vistavg-ultimate-theme-for-windows-xp/ Scroll to the bottom for the uxtheme.dll patcher for whatever service pack you're using so you can enable third party themes. Note that it does NOT have transparency. If you want it then download this: http://www.askvg.com/border-skin-get-aero-...-in-windows-xp/ Transparency on XP does slow down a system though (no matter how fast the graphics card is) because of the hacking that goes on with the GUI.

    Pal And Ntsc

    NTSC format? PAL and NTSC are analog TV transmission formats and it has nothing to do with Blu-ray discs or DVDs. And it's not like the US uses NTSC anymore... What you're talking about is region lockout. On some Blu-ray players you can go into a service menu and fiddle with the region code settings there, but it might void your warranty not to mention being in the gray area of law.
  5. Uninstall the older version(s) of Java. Remember to do this every time you update it because for some reason Sun is too lazy to make an automatic uninstaller.
  6. Reinstall Office to fix Word and PowerPoint. As for the image viewer, go to Start > Run and type in: regsvr32 /i shimgvw.dll and click OK.
  7. First off what you said only resolves (a specific few) spyware/adware/trojan issues, and running SmitFraudFix (first on the list?!) without supervision or even bothering to diagnose the issue is complete overkill. It may even screw up the OS and lead you to a reinstall when you never had to in the first place. I don't even know why you're bothering to mention CCleaner. This isn't the place to post tutorials anyway.
  8. Maybe try clearing your HOSTS file? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hosts_file#Location_and_content

    More Laptop Problems

    I don't think you use straight rubbing alcohol. Either it's a ceratin store bought percentage, or you water it down... Bob told me a bit ago I also have these, which are amazingly convenient compared to rubbing alcohol. Thanks. I googled it and supposedly high purity Isopropyl Alcohol works great, so I'll probably get that... Guess it's to Best Buy and a pharmacy for me, lol. I'm beginning to hate laptops...but I'm gonna love 'em once I get this working and get a wireless router. It's worth it to spend the money on the ArctiClean cleaner. I used alcohol before, and it took half an hour of rubbing before most of the compound came off (most, not all, unlike ArctiClean). With the cleaner it barely takes a minute. But... if you want to save money, then go ahead.

    Constant Disconnects

    Oh, yea maybe, but are there any laptops with those slots? Or do they work with PCMCIA? I don't think PC card slots have even come with laptops since around 2005. Right now everything uses ExpressCard, but they're not compatible with each other.

    More Laptop Problems

    Lesson for next time: Don't bother tinkering with laptops. 99% of the time you'll screw something up. They're not desktops after all. If the laptop has integrated graphics, you probably b0rked something by getting a motherboard that can't interface correctly with the other components. I don't even think you can replace the motherboard in a laptop without breaking something since they're designed to operate specifically with one mobo, right down to the revision number. It would probably be better to put the old motherboard back in and send it to HP for repairs.

    Firefox 4 Screenshot Mockups

    I'm okay with tabs like in Office 2007, but in Firefox? If it's anything like IE, the tabs will be filled with a bunch of unorganized crap that decreases usability. Menus FTW
  13. Internet Explorer Ugh, no, just no. Switch to Firefox/Chrome/Safari/Opera, they're all far more secure and faster than IE. ~~~~

    Here in America SCART is non-existent - if you asked someone about it they would go "huh, wut?" We all just use YPbPr as a rough alternative, maybe even S-Video Since I barely know anything about it I'm not sure this would work, but here: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Scart-15-Pin-VGA-C...5615&sr=8-2 AFAIK (from what I read) SCART includes audio and obviously VGA doesn't, so you're gonna need a few audio cables to go with it.
