Funnily enough I've kinda managed it. If you select View Workgroup Computers (on the XP machine) you can initially see only the local XP PC. But if you navigate up one level to Microsoft Windows...

Thanks. I looked at that article but it relies upon the SATA AHCI Storage Controller hardware being visible in Device Manager (i.e. so you can install drivers for it). Unfortunately, I need to select...

Yes, I do own a previous XP license which is a full retail copy but it won't install on this new machine (because the install disk is too old). I just bought a (supposedly unused) OEM disk and that...

Thanks for the tip. I already looked on ebay for XP but they do all seem to be OEM versions now. Has Microsoft stopped selling XP now?

To be honest, I'm not 100% sure what an OEM disk is. Is it a...

Possibly but I'd prefer to partition my drive and install normally if possible. I've just been reading about PCIe and it turns out that my version (2.0) wasn't introduced until 2007. My copy of XP is...

Thanks for the prompt reply Noel. No, it's not an OEM copy. It's the full version. I suppose I should have made a note of the 0800 number at the time but I didn't think of it.

Product activation on a replacement PC

At the beginning of 2010 I bought myself a copy of Windows 7 Ultimate. I can't remember precisely when I activated it but around March or April 2010. It was activated on a 32-bit machine.

Thanks Gazz and everyone else who's been providing suggestions. However I think there's some confusion creeping in here. VGA is an analogue format. DVI / HDMI etc are digital formats. You'd need an...

To be honest Corazon, I think you'll find it is. It's just that you rarely notice the problem unless you launch a processor-hungry app immediately after boot-up. Applications like 'Word' etc don't...

Why does Win7 lie about it's boot-up time?

Since I moved from XP to Windows 7 I've been pleasantly surprised at how quickly my desktop appears after I boot up. But I've started to realise that by the time the desktop appears, Windows hasn't...

C:\Program Files (x86)\

In Windows 7 (64 bit) I've noticed a folder called C:\Program Files(x86) - in addition to the more familiar C:\Program Files. I've assumed (maybe wrongly) that this is where 32-bit apps get...
