    Dual Monitor Problem

    In linux anyway you can use the tool nvidia-settings and twinview to do what you want. nvidia-settings is a gui tool that lets you easily set up twinview. No need to hack the xorg.conf yourself Hope that helps on that end Oh and make sure you have the proprietary drivers installed

    I Switched From Xp

    Windows 7 has been a surprise. I thought I had jumped ship to ubuntu after I started messing with it, but they did well in making this OS
  4. Hey guys Ive been trying out Windows 7 these past couple of months and have had a minor issue. I was wondering if you guys had any ideas on what to do next. Basically I have a dell XPS laptop and the speakers dont work. I usually have it plugged in to external speakers anyway (which do work) so its not really a huge issue, but the built in speakers dont work at all. Ive been trying to find drivers, but when I run the ones from the dell support site they always say device not found. You would think the dell site provides proper drivers for this model, but since I was not the one to purchase the computer Im not sure exactly what sound device is in the computer. Any ideas on how to find the right drivers for this? Its a Dell xps 1330 and i believe its stock
  5. Very nice find hitest

    A Walk Down Memory Lane

    Its been pretty much to same for me too. My first experience with linux was the auditor live cd ( based in knoppix). I guess I was learning to be a bit of a script kiddie following a guide on how to crack my wireless network using linux. Couple years later and I started using ubuntu and ive been on it since. I use debian for my server and im messing around with gentoo a little in my free time.

    Mount Remote Volume

    If your disk is on a windows system you can just share it and then mount it using smbfs or cifs. Here is a great guide on it http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=288534

    Testing A Harddrive

    Hey guys its been a while, I think my harddrive in my laptop may be failing and im looking around for some way to test it. I remember there being a modified knoppix disk that did just that. Anybody remember what it was called?

    Make sure you arnt typing in the wep passphrase and have selected the wep hex key. It took me a while when I first installed it to realize that.
