First, I'm embarrassed because this would have been my solution - it's pretty obvious - and I didn't try it. With her iphone 5, this was not possible; I needed Adobe Bridge. iOs selfishly...

I am in the US, so any of the online places I'd look at would ship any configuration I'd reasonably expect to me.

I will check that option - thanks!

It's not for gaming per se, nothing intense, although some non-taxing games are played on it. Basically internet access and schoolwork using MS Office type...

Buying/configuring PC online?

I'm trying to buy a new desktop (probably Win10, but same principle applies).

Years ago the Dell website made it very easy to configure a computer, from a "standard" base. I don't see that as an...

Yes, the cable made no difference.

The old monitor was a 4:3, same 1280x1024 (yes, I know, that's 5:4), and no problems with it. No problems when I temporarily swapped in a 1280x1024 Dell monitor...

It's really weird.

The login screen looks exactly as I'd like. The user interface and overall appearance is great everywhere.

The only two things where I think there's a lessening...

I just replaced a 1280x1024 Viewsonic monitor, that had gone bad, with another one (Viewsonic VA708).

chkdsk and \Device\Harddisk1\DR1 has a bad block

I'll start with my two questions, then go to the backstory part:

1. How do I force Windows to run a chkdsk on a certain disk, not now, but at bootup?
2. What do a seeming explosion of Event ID 7...

I'm a big "if it ain't broke don't fix it" person, and haven't seen or heard or experienced a reason to change from MSE.
