    Alright.....

    Getting the same here. The forum itself loads like expected, but the first click on any subforum takes forever to load. Then after that it is OK.

    Alright.....

    Been seeing the same thing here since the upgrade as well, and still seeing it today.

    Alright.....

    You have any kind of noscript or adblock type of addon/extension in your browser? For me it shows up as soon as I click in the Reply window. You can also hit the "more reply options" button and it will take you to the usual reply box/page you're used to seeing.

    Alright.....

    Still there, Two of them, the link is down near the bottom left corner of the page. Looks like a combuination of the reply box you're used to with the quick reply box, only with much more functions/options than the old Reply button/box. Not sure about the rest, but a little poking around and you'll likely find most of it. If not some other helpful soul can point you in the right direction.

    Can't Get 2nd Monitor To Work With Imac + Adapter

    The problem is you're trying to send a digital signal (both displayport and DVI are digital connections/signals) to an analogue connection (VGA). You need either a monitor with a DVI port on it (you didn't say the make and model of your Samsung or whether it has a DVI port), or a digital to analogue converter between the two for it to work.
  6. Unless things have changed it doesn't matter what you set those to when running Firefox on XP, as Direct2D isn't supported under XP, http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?t=1775755

    Size Of Video Card

    Integrated Intel graphics that has no memory of its own (some do, yours is one that doesn't), and gets its memory from system ram. There may or may not be a setting in the bios or possibly the Intel graphics control panel that will allow you to allocate a set amount, but doubtful.

    Which Way To Hook Up Tv To Internet

    All you should need to do when the TV is connected is to set it to extended mode (run dual monitors/displays), that will allow you to use both the laptop screen and the TV at the same time. Just drag the app/browser to the TV to watch, and you can check your email/etc on the laptop.

    No Audio!

    voyager7 First off which motherboard is it? You essentially listed two totally different models, P5K-VM http://usa.asus.com/Motherboards/Intel_Socket_775/P5KVM/#download Maximus Formula - http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/Intel_Socket_775/Maximus_Formula/ The first has Realtek for the onboard audio, of which the link caintry linked is what you need. The second uses the Soundmax ADI 1988B audio, and the driver can be found on the above link. Next that "sound card" you listed, isn't actually a sound card. It is nothing more than a riser card used for the audio on that and a few other Asus motherboards in place of having it built into the motherboard. As far as I know it also won't work on any other motherboards other than the ones it came with.

    Creative Labs Sb X-fi Windows 7 Driver?

    SB0460 also known as the X-Fi Xtreme Music. You can find the driver and a few of the apps for it on the Creative support pages. http://support.creative.com/Products/ProductDetails.aspx?catID=1&subCatID=208&prodID=14066&prodName=X-Fi%20XtremeMusic&subCatName=X-Fi&CatName=Sound+Blaster&VARSET=prodfaq:PRODFAQ_14066,VARSET=CategoryID:1 I have the same card and personally I would go with this instead, http://forums.creative.com/t5/Sound-Blaster/SB-X-Fi-PCI-Install-Disc-1-0-unofficial/td-p/556496 It is based on the beta of the current official driver, as well as all apps that could be modified to work with Windows 7 have been. Been using it on mine with no problems at all. If you do decide to use the official instead, make sure to download the second one listed as the first is for Vista and XP only. P.S. If the card came with the front panel box then it is the Platinum. Not that it matters any as they both ( Xtreme Music and Platinum) use the exact same driver.

    Can I Use A Flat-screen Lcd Monitor As A Tv?

    Your link doesn't work. And you don't need all those cables as they won't do you any good without something to send the TV signal to the monitor. A monitor doesn't have a tuner built into it, so there is no way of changing channels. You can't just connect the cable to the monitor and watch TV. Assuming you're using cable you would need one of these (or whatever model your cable provider uses), http://www.cisco.com/web/consumer/support/settop_4250HD.html or if going OTA (using an antenna) you would need something like this, http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16882107075 Once you have one of those then you look at what you need to connect them together.

    Installing Windows 7

    You get a subscription here, http://technet.microsoft.com/en-ca/subscriptions/default.aspx and after you sign up and pay for it then you can go here, http://technet.microsoft.com/en-ca/subscriptions/downloads/default.aspx and download most things from Microsoft's library, with the up to 5 keys for most things. And no it is not OK to sell them, which is probably what you bought. The keys when bought like yours probably is do work for a while, but eventually Microsoft can and usually does blacklist the keys, leaving the person with a now no longer activated or valid copy of Windows (or Office).

    Installing Windows 7

    It is. most of those are Technet/MSDN keys that will usually work for a while, but eventually Microsoft will blacklist them.
