  • Tryin to boot Windows 7 from disc.?

    I am running windows xp right now and want to do a fresh reinstall with the windows 7 upgrade disc. i am following this guide here:

    http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/1649-clean-in...

    In step 2, when booting from cd-rom the guide says:" 2. When prompted, press any key to boot from the installation DVD"

    However, when I try to boot from the windows 7 disc it says "Boot from AHCI-CD-ROM:"

    I'm not sure what to press at this point to book from the windows 7 disc. I tried hitting enter and random other buttons without any luck. Am I on the right track here? Or am I doing something wrong?

  • H&R Block At Home DVD good tax software?

    I received in the mail a H&R Block "At Home" Deluxe Investors/Homeowners Federal + e-file (Five Free federal e-files included) DVD. So aparantly there is no state e-file, but I live in Ohio and I believe they have free e-file through the state website. It says "formerly TaxCut".

    Will this software provide me with everything I need to do my taxes? I have a pretty uncomplicated personal tax filing. I'm not sure why I got it in the mail....

  • Ticking noise in my fuse / relay box -Chrysler Town & Country?

    Last week, mechanic reset something in the computer because my power locks weren't working. That seemed to fix the problem. This may or may not be related. Tonight, my van will not start (no power at all when turning key). There is a farily loud ticking noise coming from fuse/relay box. I pulled a few fuses, but that didn't do anything. Any ideas?

  • How do I transfer quickbooks information from one computer to another?

    I need to transfer Quickbooks files (and a few other miscellaneous files) from an old 12 yr old HP pc to a new Lenovo. The old HP has a floppy drive that doesn't work and a CD drive. It has a USB port, but when I put a flash drive in the old HP, it says it needs to find drivers for the flash drive and it doesn't work.

    What are my options here to get my files off my old computer to my new? Upload to an online storage place? If so, where? I don't know how to do that. Am I missing any ways to download my files onto something and just plug into my new PC?

  • I can't get my laptop battery to charge. Light comes on, then off?

    I have a Dell Inspiron 6000. This problem has been happening for a while. In order to charge the battery I had to set the wire from the charger just right or else I wouldn't get a good connection. But now, I can't get it charged back up. The only luck I'm having is this: If I wiggle the wire just right (which might take me 5 minutes), I can get the green "charging" light to come on. But now, I can't get it to stay on. It lights up for about 5 seconds, then shuts off again. Nothing has been moved in the meantime. It takes me another 5 minutes to get the light to light up again and then it shuts off within 5 seconds.

    FYI: I tried taking the battery out to power the laptop up with just the charger cord, but that doesn't work either.

  • Can I delete shipping cost (mutually) from Ebay invoice as the buyer?

    I bought a bike from a guy off ebay. He had listed shipping as $69.99. After I won the item he sent the invoice (with shipping). Later, I asked if he would allow me to pick the item up and get rid of shipping cost. He agreed. I asked him to send me a new invoice. However, he called and his computer crashed and has no access to computer. He wants paid and I want to pay him, but he's unable to send a new invoice at this time. He thought I would be able to make the change myself (as the buyer) and take off the shipping cost before paying the rest. I have been unable to figure out how to do this. Is it possible?

  • Is the Cannondale CAAD5 a road bike? (xc bike?)?

    I'm looking a Cannondale CAAD5 and having trouble figuring out if this is actually road bike? Whenever I google it, it comes up under mountain bike websites. I want a bike for triathlons. This appears to be for trail and mountain climbing? Is that correct? I'm thinking this bike is not for me.

  • Can I hook up my ceiling fan to the old light box? See situation?

    I am hoping to replace my old light with a ceiling fan. I bought a brace intending to use it to support my ceiling fan. However, when I took the old light out, the old light box is nailed to a ceiling joist. So I will be unable to use the brace because the old box is right on the joist.

    I though, "no problem", I'll just take the old light box down and put the fan box up. But, the fan box is several inches deep and would hang through the ceiling.

    So, my question is, can I hang my fan on the ceiling box?

    A friend told me that since it is nailed to the joist it should be plenty stable.

    I understand this wouldn't be up to code, but would I still be pretty safe if I used the old light box to hang my fan?

    Otherwise, I don't see any other options to hang my fan.

  • Who would you drop? Matt Cain or Greg Smith?

    I am going to pick up Kerry Wood, but I need to drop a starter-either Matt Cain or Greg Smith. There actually hasn't been that big of a difference between the two, but it seems like Smith has thrown better and has the better team. I haven't been impressed by Cain, but I only see his stats not actual games. Can Smith sustain this? Who would you drop?

  • Does it matter how fast I mow my lawn?

    I have an Ariens zero turn mower. I tend to mow at 3/4 speed or more. I tend to go faster than slower. Does this affect the cut of my grass? My friends tell me that if I went slower the cut would look better.

  • I'm going to paint a garage. Wood siding. Doesn't hold paint well. Looking to avoid paint coming off.?

    I recently stripped this garage with a power washer. We moved this garage to our property this spring, but it has a history over the last 50 years of not holding paint real well and chipping and peeling off. It has wood siding. I am looking for a way to make the paint hold a little better, perhaps with a primer, a particular type of paint, or finish or by a particular technique. My knowledge of types of paints is limited. I know there are outdoor paints-but that's about it. I plan to paint the garage white. Thanks! Dimensions: approx. 18' x 16'
