    Windows 7 netbook brightness

    I have an eeePC 900ha, and I am having an issue with brightness in Windows 7. Mousing over certain things in firefox (dell's laptop configuration pages) and switching windows causes a momentary dip (%5 or so) in the brightness. What could be causing this? I have eeeCTL, but it doesn't have to be...

    Problems OC'ing a q9550 (E0)

    I've been trying to OC my CPU, but keep running into the same problem. No matter what the voltage, fsb, RAM timings (they're at stock) or RAM multiplier it never gets past POST. I've tried a fsb of 334, and even with added voltage, it doesn't POST. It works perfectly fine at normal settings...

    Computer boots for a second, and then shuts down

When I went to boot it up, it started, the lights lit up, hard drives/fans spun for about a second, then it shut itself off. It didn't beep at all. I then proceeded to...

    So I was thinking about getting this, and a pair of these and I was wondering if they came with any cables (speaker wire or display cables), or if I need to get them separately. Thanks!

    Sweet, I have an iPhone! ... wait what?

    So recently I noticed that in My Computer it says I have an iPhone connected to my computer. The only problem is, I don't have an iPhone, nor does anyone who would have access to my computer. When I try to click on it, nothing happens, and a right click only lets me Open (which does nothing)...

    So they're going to tear part of my school down!

    ... so everyone is signing the walls in sharpie. The funny thing about this is that the teachers/administrators don't care. Well, sort of, they had a janitor cross out all the offensive stuff (penises, etc :lol:) and such. Sorry for the crappy phone pics (especially the last one), better ones...

    Inspiron 4150 random shutdown

    Ok, I have an Inspiron 4150, that I got from someone I know because it was having this problem. What happens is I press the power button, and (depending on how long it has been since my last attempt at booting it) it tries to boot, but shuts down in the middle of the process. No warning at all...

    James, Richard, and skis

    I was watching the race to verbier from season 8, and I realized this. In the polar challenge, while training in the alps, Clarkson is saying that this is "James and Richard's first ever skiing lesson" but in the race to verbier, they are both have skis. Am I the only one who doesn't get this?
