    You might be right...although given my computer skill level I could also **** that up! A couple of friends are coming for lunch, and one of them's a computer guy I think...will have to try to slip it into conversation.

    You can, this was possibly a deliberate loophole that Microsoft put in probably to make win8 more popular. The cheap upgrade to Win8 applicable for genuine Win7 users was also working for users who use pirated copies. It has been working since october 2012. However they raised the price from $40 to $199 recently so probably not worth it

    Upgrade to Windows 8 Pro from your pirated Windows 7 - Windows 8 - WinMatrix
    Get well soon Yuvi!!

    Can you connect two things that would usually connect with a LAN cable/RJ45 socket, with something wireless, that isn't the wifi network?

    Had a mare with my laptop last week. Got a pair of Bluetooth headphones on the cheap, and whilst the laptop will recognise they are there, it wont actually let me configure the sound to play through them. Doesn't help that the laptop wants drivers for them, and there isn't any.

    They work wonders with my iPad though, which is really what I bought them for.

    My PSU is obnoxiously loud. Is there anyway to regulate its fan speed or just buy a less **** one?

    If the HDD is making noise, it is going to go bad soon. I would suggest taking a complete backup of all the data

    Problem solved; I slotted in a solid state drive and did some funky work with the partitions.

    Now I can quite literally call Murphy a **** within 15 seconds of pressing the on button.

    Bump.

    Help please, chaps.

    I'm currently attempting to install Steam on my work laptop (can't contact IT support for this one), but keep getting the error message: "error 1325 : <filename> is not a valid short filename", which then aborts the installation.

    I'm pretty sure the reason behind this, is that the laptop is configured to sync all of the folders to the work network when I sign in, and that if I disable this function, the installation should go through ok. Pretty sure I did this before, but just can't remember how to do it. Any help would be much appreciated.
