P-ATA HDD Enclosure
I have a spare 500GB internal P-ATA hard drive that I would like to make into an external USB 2.0 hard drive. I see lots of enclosures advertised for SATA, but very few for P-ATA. Not surprising, I suppose. Any suggestions for a reliable enclosure for a P-ATA drive are gratefully accepted. "Reliable" means I c... 23 Mar 2010 11:16

XPS 9000: Fans speeds up while in BIOS setup?
I've noticed this before, but was too busy to pay much attention. When I hit F2 and go into the BIOS setup on my XPS 9000, the fan at the back of the computer revs up; noticeably faster and louder than most of the time when I'm in Windows, and it doesn't slow back down until I exit setup and the computer starts... 29 Mar 2010 15:49
