I installed the Logitech G9 software, and while it didn't give me any errors (i.e. no device found), my mouse still isn't on or functional. I did try it in other USB ports, but those also just caused...

I would disconnect the data, but as it is only a partition I cannot do so. Hopefully everything will go smoothly.

New PC build-replacing boot partition

I'm replacing my mobo/cpu with Sandy Bridge parts when they become available tomorrow, and I'm hoping to be able to move my data partition over without wiping it. I've currently got my drive...

I'm doing it in the manner you suggested. Is there any way to simplify the reinstall process when I inevitably do reinstall Windows? I know my Steam games can be backed up and restored. It's a shame...

Right, I understand that, but I want to just basically copy off the data partition as is, and plop it back in place on top of the reinstalled W7. I'm asking if that will work without issue, or if it...

Can I reinstall this way?

I partitioned my drive prior to installing W7 so that my operating system would be on a different partition than my data. In retrospect, I made the operating system partition way too small, and I've...

I think Newegg regards it as a "nonreturnable" item because it wears down with use and is easy to muck up. I got this info from the Return page on their site, not just from some lackey. I really...
