ronald arthur dewhirst
The OpticBook 3600 is great for scanning books and getting right to the inner edge of the page and works OK on other tasks too but there can be problems with the software provided, or working with newer operating systems.

Linux compatablity

Is there an easy way to determine if a motherboard is linux compatable? For instance looking at the chipset. As an example the ASUS Prime A320m-A is on the ASUS Linux Status Report ( ) which I assume means the board is compatable.

USB Device Not Recognized (External Hard Drive)

Well, here's my problem: I just bought a Western Digital 60gb Passport II 2. 5 Hard Drive this past week at Black Friday. Took it home, worked wonderfully. It was formatted as FAT32, so I reformatted it to NTFS, still no problems.

Partition disappeared - need to recover files

I left my computer downloading while I went out and when I came back, I found an error screen. This has happened often since I upgraded to a one gb DIMM of Ultra memory and *appears* to be a temp problem with the memory on the board and the error msgs.

Voodoo2 D3D wrapper?

Is there any way to get D3D with a voodoo2 in windows 2000, like a wrapper or anything? I know the 3dfx drivers don't support it. Thanks!.

Voodoo2 D3D - no, wrapper - how?

Short version - how do I get a wrapper set up for Asheron's Call with my Voodoo2 card? Long - I've got an older 440FX computer that I'm donating soon, but am waiting for the new Intel 815's to come out before I upgrade.

Building a new PC: how EXACTLY to install USB mouse?

Yup, I'm building a new Windows XP desktop machine, transferring across one or two bits of the hardware from the old (10 yrs vintage) machine. The mouse I use is essentially a USB wired mouse with a PS2 adaptor, so that at present it plugs into the reserved PS2 mouse port on the current (old) machine.

So I was drinking vodka and chased it with soda, I missed my mouth and a few drops got in my keyboard. . . Now I have to use the Acer Aspire 3810 Series Laptop Keyboard, when I use the regular keyboard it hits other keys, though some keys work.

help removing a virtual cd drive

I should have done this a long time ago. I had a family member use a version of Deamon tools to create a virtual cdrom drive on my PC to allow a game to be played my mult users in a home network. In doing so he bypassed my actual cd/dvd/rw drive.
