    A couple of laptop HD questions

    So are you saying that most laptops (i.e. not "higher end") still use 2.5" sata drives?

    A couple of laptop HD questions

    1. What is the most common type of hard drive found in laptops over the past let's say 5 years? I don't think it is a 2.5" sata drive anymore. 2. Can someone recommend a universal drive adapter that will work with the hard drive above? Something similar to this...

    WTB: Used 15.6" business class notebook

    I prefer a HP Probook with Intel cpu in good condition. It should have a number pad , be able to run virtual machines, and be able to take a 2.5" SATA hard drive. Let me know what you got.

    Could you possibly check that out? I'm not trying to have it installed on a bunch of PC's but if I need to move it from one to another I would like to be able to. Also, does anybody know if you have to have a MS account to install this?

    Anybody know where to find old MS-DOS and Win 3.1 images?

    I would like to find MS-Dos 6.22 and Windows 3.1 to install in a virtual machine for some testing. Does anybody know if there are any isos for these that will make it easy (possible :)) to install in a VM?

    Is this UPS dead or is it just the batteries?

    Yes it stays powered (at least for the 30 secs I had it unplugged). I know I can replace the batteries (and they are quite old) but my problem is I can't decide whether this 'locking up' behavior is just bad batteries or the UPS itself is going bad. There is no point in me buying new batteries...

    Is this UPS dead or is it just the batteries?

    I have a Cyberpower CP1500PFCLCD ups. On a couple of different occasions I've had the ups seem to lock up and the devices connected to it powered off. The display showed that the battery was full. Nothing looked odd. However, I couldn't seem to turn it off by holding the power button. The way I...

    Excel question regarding 'Workbook list'

    Thanks. This is related to that option. None of the changes do what I want though. Currently when more than 14 workbooks are open the list is vertical. 14 or less it changes to horizontal with preview windows. Surely there is a place in the registry where you can change this value to 1 or...

    Excel question regarding 'Workbook list'

    I have to open several workbooks at once (like maybe 20). When I do the list of files are listed vertical when I hover over the 'excel' icon on the taskbar. I'll make a change to a workbook and then close it. When I get down to about 10 workbooks, the listing changes from vertical to...

    So no ideas on why this happens? I guess there is not a way to have the bios try each boot device?

    Asus motherboard occasionally loses boot order

    The board is a P8BWS. It rarely happens but occasionally it happens when it goes to sleep. When it does it prevents me from booting up from WOL because it tries to boot from the DVD drive instead of the HD and there is no boot disk in it. I already checked the CMOS battery and it is reading...

    Is there a brand of laptop that doesn't eventually come apart?

    I know that is a weird thread title but for example I am using an old HP Envy laptop where the case has broken on one of the hinge areas. I'm wanting to buy a newer used laptop and I am wonder if there is a brand that tends to be better built? I like HP's but this issue is bothersome. I'm not...
