  1. i got a Toshiba USB TV tuner that i got from my freind because he had no idea what it was. Im having trouble installing it. I cannot find any drivers for it. ive looked at toshiba's website and couldnt find anything for it. Im hoping you guys can help me out here. the Product number is pa3518u-1tvn. im using windows xp

  2. im having this same problem. ive been searching online to figure out how to do this and most of them say to use the "wine emulator." this is sopposed to be able to install your windows program on linux. i have not figured out how to use it because the verson that people use online is different than the one i have. You can find this program using the "add/remove program." If you can figure out how to use this let me know.

  3. great suggestions ninjageek and mudmanc4. both of them worked great. i got windows as the default OS. and my keyboard workes during the boot menu.

    Thanks for all your help. this is why i like this forum because usually all my problems get resolved.

  4. i did some testing. i didnt think that this was going to be the problem but i think it is. I am using a wireless mouse and keyboard. when i plugged in a wired keyboard it worked just fine. i threw this out early because i could get to my bios screen with it. i wonder why the keyboard does not work during the boot screen

  5. hopefully this is an easy one.

    when the screen comes up to select the which OS you want i cannot go up or down. and after the count down it automatically goes to Linux.

    why can i not pick the OS i want and how do i change it so the windows would be the default OS

  6. back to how to create a partition.

    i did some research and it says to go to disk manament window and right click on the unallocated space and then click on new partition. heres the problem i cannot find the unallocated space.

    heres what my window looks like

  7. When i put the linux cd in says i can do a full installation alongside windows or as the only operating system. so im assuming if a install it alongside windows it will create its own partition for it. Am i right?

    There also an option to install inside of windows, but the disk performace is slighty reduced.

  8. i am having trouble opening my email attachments

    I emailed a powerpoint presentation to myself so i can work on it at home. when i go to "save target as". it is saving it as a commpressed zip file. so when io unzip them it shows these files it the picture below. this happens to all my attachments. I've done this before and it worked fine.

    What is going on here?

    A quick response would be very appreciated

  9. Thats pretty good... But... the heatsink is designed to cool the chip.. why would removing it cool it more?  :-|

    yes, but the fan was not running. so the heat sink will also get hot. When you lift the heat sink off the cold air is able to flow over the chip. this will cool the chip very quickly.

    This is just my theory. I dont know this for a fact.

  10. heres what i think happened. the chip got really hot and when they took the heat sink off, the chip cooled to rapidly causing the air under the chip to compress and that made it pop off like it did.

    Its like heating up a pop can and then dumping it into a pool of ice water. The can shrinkes instanly.

  11. i believe you can. most monitors have a dvi input. So you would need a hdmi to dvi converter if your using a PS3. for the 360 i think the newer one come with a hdmi port, im not sure im a playstation guy. You may have to unplug the console and plug back in your computer. but that shouldnt take to long.

    This should work. I havent done it, but i was thinking of trying it sometime also
