Mis-identified CD/DVD drive by Ken[_9_]
I replaced the CD drive in my Presario 5000T desktop yesterday with a Philips DVD8301/44 I got from a friend without documentation or box. From what I can find on Google it should read both CDs and DVDs. However, it reads only DVDs. This happens under both Windows XP Home and Ubuntu Linux 7.10....

Compaq Evo display zooms in/distorts by rgmw

I've got two sticks of 128 MB ram and have room for one more. If I add a stick of 256 MB, does the order in which the three sticks are installed make any difference? Can I just put the 256 stick in the third slot or must I put it in the first slot and move a 128 stick to the third slot? Compaq...
