Recommend a new printer? by [email protected]
I want to buy a new printer that can copy as well as print. Inkjet seems suitable. I guess if I need to be able to copy, then an allinone is in order. Since I have a router, a network printer would seem in order, but USB will do. I do not want trouble, which I have had with my present HP C7280...

PC Is Noisy by [email protected]
A couple of days ago, my pc became rather noisy. The noise is nonstop and loud. I'm not overly comfortable with opening up the pc, but at work, when we have issues like this, usually IT staff will isolate the cause to a failing hard drive or bad fans. Is there any software that I can use at home...

Suggestions for Core 2 Duo systems that use PCI - not PCI express? by geoff
Hello, I actually do not see why a newer core would be faster. 45 nm technology, for example, is the size of the gate or transistor, and more can be placed on the chip but that, by itself, would not mean faster. The only two thing I can think of, with regard to the core only, not the caches,...
