Sweet! I love Core2 tech. That looks like it's going to be a great setup. 8)

Thanks for marking it solved.  :D

Yeah, Firefox and Chrome are both pretty RAM hungry.

It doesn't look bad to me. It's a single core with two threads. Decent amount of memory, and you saw to the storage space. And, as you said, free is good. :)

No problem.

If this is solved to your satisfaction, please edit your first post and add (Solved) to the subject line. Thanks in advance for doing that.

If you mean in the space where it shows what's running, that's simple. With an item open, right-click on the space between the launchers (media player is the last one by default) and the open item. When the menu pops up, select "Properties." If you did this correctly, the box that comes up will say "Window Buttons" up top. Under Appearance, uncheck next to "Show button labels." If you do this, you'll have icons only in that area.

Plus, you can pop a bunch of bubbles and then talk funny.

Yeah, that's the good wrap. I hate it when people don't properly package stuff. I hope you gave that seller good feedback.

And, in response to what Mark said, definitely fill the bin full of air. My spare time is precious, no time to waste popping bubbles.

Advanced Topics / Re: 'intel' Vs 'modesetting' drivers
« on: January 17, 2019, 06:33:36 pm »
I'm just baffled why I get "intel" and everyone else gets "modesetting" .. I need a PC that gets "modesetting" so I can figure out how to force load "intel" instead.

Because you're awesome and you deserve a better driver. :D

(seriously, that was my planned response even before I read your second post)

Who knows with Windows? I know the newer versions, particularly 8/8.1 and 10 are supposed to be even more married to the system than older versions. I'm pretty sure 7 doesn't like it when you do that either. But, I may be mistaken. Like you said, it could be a hardware compatibility, or maybe even a driver not loading correctly since you switched hardware.

What you're wanting to do would, of course, quite easily work with Linux. As far as I know, you can do it with OSX too, provided you put it into an OSX compatible system. Windows is the picky one.

OK, that's what your problem is. You can't just take a Windows drive off of one motherboard and put it on another. Windows marries itself to the exact location it's installed on, right down to the exact motherboard and even the port on the motherboard that the drive is plugged into. If you take it out and put it on another board, it won't boot.

Yeah, something went wonky with the Windows install, because I never had an issue like that dual booting any Linux system and Win 7. Did you shrink your Windows partition when you installed Peppermint?

Aren't computers fun?  ;D

Depends when you ask ;)

They're fun until they're not. Then they're frustrating pieces of crap. ;)

That's because he linked to a thread in a part of the forum that's restricted to Trusted Users and higher.

Pandora in an Ice SSB is my go-to for radio. Custom stations for the win. 8)
