Re: Adobe Reader Issue

I made the user an administrator - no dice. I moved the computer into the generic Computers organizational unit (which is basically wide open, GPO-wise) and no dice also. I tried changing the...

Windows 7 Bootloader Destroyed

My work laptop used to dual-boot between XP and 7 (XP was the first partition, 7 the second). Today, I decided that I no longer had any need for XP, and wiped the partition, then moved the 7...

Re: No USB in Windows

Doubtful. There's no domain controller, and if it was done just on the local machine, the network guys would try to get us fired (yeah, that makes no sense, but so does a lot of other stuff around...

Re: No USB in Windows

No USB in Windows

Where I work, I have a laptop (Dell Latitude D520, C2D, 1GB RAM, etc. etc.) that inexplicably has no USB support in Windows (XP Pro SP3). I know for a fact that the USB ports do actually work...

Bombich Software: Carbon Copy Cloner (http://bombich.com/ccc)

I've never used this program, only it's (now defunct) companion NetRestore, but it worked flawlessly.

So, educate me.

I'm helping a friend build a new machine, and he's a little out of the loop as far as what's good these days (further out of the loop than I am). I've finally convinced him that Intel is the way to...

As best as I can tell, doing ./configure, followed by make, followed by make install (as root) in the Modules folder should get it compiled.

Re: Yellow Dog Linux 2.1 HELP!!

First off, may I ask why you're using such an old release of YDL? You could probably bump up to at least the 5.x series and still have decent performance.

Re: gud day..

Can you be a little more specific as to what is NOT working? What kind of card you have? What you've tried/haven't tried? What driver you're using and/or what version?

There's no onboard, and I haven't tried another card yet, but that's the next thing I plan to do.

Re: Ha! Dr Phil

There was a time, long ago, when Dr. Phil was my homeboy.

Until he turned into the next Maury. Now, I have no respect for him at all. Serves him right.
