HI I have ordered a new PC and have started to move some stuff onto CDs to take to the new PC. I have got all My Documents and save files for programs, and wanted to know what else I should keep. For example, how do I backup all of my Outlook Express settings? Is there a way to copy my messages?...

Partition Hard Drive? by ~misfit~
"radon" wrote in message ... I didn't know that a FAT32 drive for the swap file would be faster. By how much? There's not a lot in it, maybe 10%. If the drive's on a slow controller it can be noticable. -- ~misfit~

I'm in the market for a DVD burner ... by Cyde Weys
I just received some e-mail ("spam") that offered a great deal on a DVD burner: only $140! Before I buy it though, I have some questions ... it supports +R and +RW media. Are these the good kinds? I.e. compatible with DVD players? Also, the DVD-R write speed is 4X - is that bad, good, etc.? ...

bios hung while flashing by mdp
Actually, if you want to hot flash (a "not for the faint of heart" method to recover a bad flash), you'll need to set the BIOS to cacheable in order to pull the BIOS chip out while it's running. -- Please de-spam my address if replying to me -------------------------------------------- "Adrian...

UK Laptop and iPAQ in USA by Simon
The power supply for my laptop can take anything from 110 - 250 volts, 50 to 60 Hz, so it would be no problem for me. Have a look on yours, it might have a sticker that says what it can handle. If not, read the manual for your laptop. On Mon, 23 Jun 2003 14:00:26 +0100, JB ...

Graphics card with RGB out? by -
So what the hell can I do? I saw a cool gadget that takes an s-video in and then allows you to play out via two or three scarts. Its possible and is a lot cheaper than a new graphics card.

To anyone who uses a Canon printer by David Johnson
When you see the on-screen graphic that indicates the ink in one or more containers is running low, do you generally replace the cartridge at that point, or is there enough ink left that it would be too wasteful to toss the old one, and you just keep making printouts as needed until you can see a...

Multiplier question, bios or hardware... ? by Bougon
I own an old AOpen AX64 MoBo. I know a bios update can't give me a wider range of possible FSB that Bios offers because these are the only ones supported by the clock generator of my motherboard (ICWorks W144H). But, is the clock multiplier a bios issue or is it related to hardware as this is the...
