Connecting old HDD via Caddy
I've just connected an old HDD to an XP PC via a caddy. It recognised it straight away (whilst my newer Vista machine wouldn't). It won't let me into my user fold though I can get into other user folders. Presumably this is because it would have had a password when in it's original machine? Is there a way to a... 23 Mar 2010 21:47
Trouble starting Windows XP
Problem began on Saturday. When PC got to the black screen with Windows logo, and the marque goes to the right, it never progressed past this screen.

Browsing for file now asks for program
Hi, I hope this is the right ng for this question. I am a novice user of Windows XP (and happy to remain novice!) I learn how to do simple things but sometimes the simple things change.

Re-partitioning external drive?
I just installed a slightly used WD 500 GB drive from an old computer in an Antec enclosure as an external USB drive. Everything works except that only 55 GB of the disk is partitioned. The remainder is shown as unpartitioned. How do I recover the full capacity? In DOS days I would have used FDisk but it seems ... 19 Mar 2010 15:32
Microsoft caught pirating somebody's patent again!!!
Before OS/2 I liked MS. I had an MS-DOS-Generic (no-bitmap, no IBM compat) 80186 and Microsoft went out of their way to be helpful. I also ran Multiplan on that Ampro 2210 with an HP2621a terminal. I joke about it, but it feels like this is true: when MS did biz with IBM on OS/2 it was almost like IBM body snatch... 19 Mar 2010 09:19
