  1. Install Plus & copy the SCR to a test PC, run InstallSpy, run the the SCR and accept the EULA. Then check the InstallSpy logs....seems simple enough to me. If you use VmWare and snapshots for your testing- its a hell of a lot easier.
  2. perhaps just use remote desktop software....remote into the home PC and watch it. But you might not have the upload bandwidth to support this.
  3. if no system restore - do a disk image. If you don't like office 2007 - restore from image.
  4. if you're pulling your TV from Cox, you're OK. If your TV is coming from the air then you'll need a digital/HD capable tuner card. Otherwise its analog and that will be dead. graphics card is not the same as the tuner card
  5. so what is the problem? what are you trying to do?
  6. I can confirm...somebody told you something the other day. perhaps a bit more detail might help. If its related to more than 3-4g of RAM on a 32bit OS - there is a difference.
  7. look here for some help on this - its for a different model, but the steps might help if you need to reinstall. make adjustments where appropriate - http://soulpass.com/2007/11/10/installing-...15-2153-laptop/
  8. my soundcard drivers automatically do this. I have to disable this, as I always have the headphones plugged in and only occassionally turn on the speakers. Update your soundcard drivers and then hunt around it's settings.
  9. this is a relevant thread....like 10 years ago. NTFS offers much more improvements over FAT32 to make this debate nonexistant. You can use tools to convert to NTFS w/o formating. You can use tools to read NTFS partitions. This used to be a lot more complicated years ago. Before doing anything - BACKUP you vital data!

  11. NEVERMIND - I just saw that you tried this.... try this - it has customizable variables too http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinte...s/bb897557.aspx BgInfo v4.14 By Bryce Cogswell Published: August 8, 2008 Introduction How many times have you walked up to a system in your office and needed to click through several diagnostic windows to remind yourself of important aspects of its configuration, such as its name, IP address, or operating system version If you manage multiple computers you probably need BGInfo. It automatically displays relevant information about a Windows computer on the des
  12. different model Acer - but some of the fundamentals are the same. http://soulpass.com/2007/11/10/installing-...15-2153-laptop/
  13. try XPLIte to remove some of the "Extras" of XP post installation. nLite is good for pre-installation cleanup. XPLite is good for post.
  14. I customized my install of XP, moving the documents and settings folder and the program files folder to the D drive - they never were installed/created on C. Despite this, I ran into a few issues along the way. Even Microsoft couldn't handle it. Microsoft Money 2007 failed to install with the drives/folders configured this way. My AV program (AVast) didn't seem to like it either. Poorly written programs/viruses look for C: - better programs look for %systemdrive% or similar variables. My two cents.
