    HP Laptop Graphic Problem

    My father is having a problem with graphic corruption on his laptop. Model is HP DV6-1234CA. It's core 2 duo based so it's fairly old. Screen looks almost identical to this thread I found on hp support...

    Setting up a VPN, where should I start?

    My parents are interested in occasionally working from home and I'd like to setup a VPN for them to do so. Right now, their office consists of five computers, one acting as a file server, all of them running Windows xp pro with a consumer grade linksys router. I'd need the VPN to support only...

    RMA'd a black, now I'm getting a blue...

    I did an advance RMA for a WD Black 640GB (WD6401AALS) and I just checked my e-mail today and it seems I'm getting a WD Blue 1TB (WD10EALS) as a replacement. Should I be pissed about getting a blue over a black? Speed is more important than size because this is my games install drive.

    Prevent Vista from turning on monitor

    I recently started using DVI>VGA on my htpc cause of all the problems with PQ I was having with my 3870 when I was using DVI>HDMI. The thing is when I now turn my htpc back on from a state of sleep, it automatically turns my Plasma on with it since it is connected via VGA, I don't think I had...
