Yes I am still around, at home I have only dial up connection and that's though our tmobile phone which my wife takes with her most days so I have no internet a lot. Also living in FL have had some major storms the past few days so I haven't been on here as I am watching the weather online. I have been also checking out all the free sites and trying this DAZ studio the free version that's replacing bryce. Also generally learning about the new laptop. I spent all of today going though DVD's of demo software and cleaning up my files (yes deleting mostly). I also ran into issues with running the 64 bit of 7, most likely driver issues and figuring out if I am going back to the factory install or some beta version of 7 32bit. This slow connection drives me nuts!!!! downloading 30+MB drivers on dialup is insane LOL Anyway back driver downloading. Also trying to find out why I have a 2GB kingston ram module and a samsung 1GB module that are not matched in my laptop and wondering if this could cause any issues but that's another thread I guess.

pull the samsung out, too see if you still bsod. trial and error
7 runs ok on 1gig, so 2gigs should work pretty well, until you can replace the stick (if necessary)

Well heres another update. My wife has been sick the past few days and 4 doctors told me I wouldn't catch it, well they were wrong. my wife has meds and I don't so if I keep feeling this way she wants me at the hospital tomorrow since I am not totally healthy to start with and she's concerned about swine flu as in my condition it would be well not good. So I could be at the hospital and if I am sick they will admit me since I have been unable to fight off infections since my surgery. Just pray they don't do any more tests that almost kill me. Anyway. I still have photoshop installed (yes being honest) the local gallery has included me in the B side artist group and when I can get back up there they think they have a copy of PS they can give me so I remain legal and keep doing my artwork.

One piece of software I do need is a good backup program free of course if anyone has any suggestions. I don't know any free apps that really work well. Also I would like a HDD utility that can do stuff like Arconis Disk director does. I want to hide the recovery partition and create a new one for file storage. I know there are some basic tools built into 7 but I don't think resizing a partition with the OS by the OS would be a good idea. if what I said made sense cool. Anyway my meds are working.

Well I am going back to sleep just checking in LOL.

only issue I have so far is some times when I shut down it hangs on the log off screen, no error logs about the issue either. and I wrote to HP to find out why they would put unmatched modules in a laptop no response so far.

for backup I use GFI backup Home edition - have used it for a while without issue. it also has a synchronizing module and built in scheduling, but may also be used with the Windows 7 scheduler

Free backup software for Windows - GFI Backup Home Edition

For partitioning have a look at Paragon software - they often do free offers

Download Free Partition Software for Windows & Mac | PARAGON Software Group - partition manager, drive backup, copy partition

Oh, and get well soon both you and the wife

Macrium Reflect is my FREE choice of backup software...
Compact...neat and it just does the job.
Network backups and scheduling obviously are stripped out of the Home Free edition but still well worth it.

Hi Patio,

The reason I suggested the GFI option is that amazingly for a free product nothing is removed Ive tried a lot of free packages over the years and most seem to be missing one feature or another

For pre upgrade/reinstall OS user info backups I have heard good reports on this ....
