Extend Desktop on Inspiron 1100
I have an Inspiron 1100 vintage 2003 running XP SP3 on which I would like to use the extended desktop feature with a second monitor. After connecting the second monitor, I can display on either monitor or both by using the Fn - F8 toggle, so I know the second monitor is working OK. But following the instruction... 28 Apr 2010 11:41

inspiron 6000 - which hard drive interface?
My wife's 40 GB drive on her Inspiron 6000 is totally full and I want to replace it with a (much) larger one. It's a Toshiba Proteus which looks to have an E-IDE interface. But I'm confused about what type of interface I need since they seem to be categorized on the sites I've looked at as SATA (most) or ATA/IDE ... 27 Apr 2010 14:26
Studio 1535 no boot
Tried to post this last night but it didn't take. My wife's Studio 1535 would not recover from sleep so I held the power button till it shut down. Then it would not boot.

more computer questions
OK, I continue to have computer problems where it suddenly, without warning, slows to a crawl. After doing some reading and trying different things, I discovered that my IDE Controller (Primary IDE channel from Device Manager Advanced Settings) was in PIO mode. It should be in DMA mode. Apparently, this occurs ... 28 Apr 2010 11:41
HDD Swap
Mike, You would like to put the 160 GB HD into the 1705 and restore the OS image from the 60 GB HD? Is that correct? I'm not certain but I think your 160 GB HD is an IDE HD and the 1705 takes a SATA HD. If they are both SATA HDs I'd say go ahead. You may need to install new storage controller drive... 26 Apr 2010 09:07
