  1. My friends pc just started acting funny. He says that all the names,words,etc is like some type of symbals or something like that. I told him to go into the control panel and go to the reginal/langauge area and turn them to english. I don't know if he did it all right or not but he says it fix some of it but not all of it. Got any ideas Thanks for the help. JDM

  3. I'm running ubuntu and I love it but I want to put windows xp pro back on my computer with ubuntu still on it. Last time I did this I couldn't get my Internet to work so I gave up and put ubuntu on it. After a day I realized I didn't install the drivers for my hardware. I was wondering if you could help me find the drivers I need and I know if I do this I will have to put grub back on, so I was wondering if anybody had any advice on this. Thanks for the help. Here is my machine: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/product...mp;lang=en& As far as I can tell this is my machine. On to the next question I have, my brother and me share a xp machine. I only use it for my itunes and some movie stuff, but my brother is being a butt about it. He got really perinode. He thinks that I'm going into his account and looking around. I do that once in a great while to clean up his stuff and so forth. I was just on that computer and I notice that he install some hide programs and he also install a spy program that took pictures of the stuff on the computer and who knows what else. I uninstall most of it and made him delete the rest. I think there is probably a chance that it is still there though. His account was the guest account but upgraded to limited or a level under it because he likes to mess with stuff. I have a computer admin. account on the computer and then my parents have a computer admin. account on their too, that they don't use but my brother has been getting on their and doing all this stuff. I changed the password so he couldn't get on but do you guys have any recommendations about how to find out what he is up too. Thanks for the help. JDM
  4. I'm looking at xp pro right now since I have a copy at home and I'm better with windows. If that doen't work then I will do linux. I'm okay with linux but not the best. I'm looking at xp pro because my dad doesn't want to do linux and because I can run my own itunes on it and not have to share the xp home computer that my brother uses for my itunes. Any suggestions for setting it up and hardware. Thanks for the help.
  5. I do have a couple of external hard drives but my computers get confuse with them since they are the same model. I was thinking of doing a server because everything will be in one place and I can play music off of it. Thanks for the help.
  6. I want to building a server for my family. I have 4 people in my family(that is includeing me too). All of us use Itunes and all of us have Ipods. I want to building a server that can hold all of our docs., music, pics., and video. I want to be able to put all of that on it then have Itunes look at it so that the individual computers don't have the music and videos but itunes and see it and so the user the music. I'm thinking of buying a computer then buy a case and switching the cases so that I can have room for hard drives. I have a copy of xp pro(legal too) that I can put on the server. The most hard drives that will be in it is 4 maybe 5. Here is the list of what I'm thinking of having in the server: a dvd burner 1 boot hard drive 3 other hard drives I'm not planning on having it all built at once. The biggest hard drive in it will be 500 gb. Can you help me out. Thanks
