    Can't read discs burned with LG drives

    There seems to be a problem between LG and me. Whenever I use discs (CD-R(W) or DVD-R(W)) created by LG burners on other LG drives they always work perfectly. But when I try those discs on different drives (reputable ones I know that work, such as Plextor and Pioneer) it's like Windows...

    XP vs 2000 on an older laptop

    Greetings, Which would run faster on a Celeron 400 MHz / 256 MB / 6 GB laptop: XP Pro or 2000 Pro? I've read threads that discuss stability and compatibility issues, but what I'm interested in is performance (considering its slow speed, I want to squeeze as much as possible out of the...

    Hi, Is there a way to change the CD key for Office 2000 after it's installed? We have 400 machines from a different organization merged into ours, and they won't accept the Office 2000 media we have. It's the same version (2000 Professional) but a different key. I don't want to have to...

    Opera email client (M2)

    two questions: 1. Is there a way to automatically mark a message as read when you view it (instead of having to press 'K' or use the mouse)? 2. Is there support for composing HTML/rich text messages? Thanks.

    installing Win98 *after* XP

    Hello, I know it's simple enough to set up a 98/XP dual boot by installing XP after 98, but if I were to install 98 after having installed XP, I run the risk of losing access to XP, correct? Right now, I have only XP on C:. I came across an old 4 GB (say I call it S) onto which I want to...

    I have a rather odd problem with sound in XP Pro: I have no troubles playing MP3s/CD audio from any program, but Windows has stopped playing sounds upon system events. For example, at startup/shutdown or if I minimize a window, no sound is played. If I change the volume slider from the...
