How can I copy everything off my old hard drive onto my new hard drive and use the old one as a backup? 

by on May 13, 2013

Q: I have a Dell XPS 720 PC running Windows XP. I just purchased a 2nd hard drive. I want to set it up with many of the programs already installed on the 1st drive and then REMOVE it and put it away somewhere. If anything happens to the 1st I will use the 2nd as a back-up.
That being said, I have had zero problems with my computer. I removed the 1st drive and put in the 2nd. I turned the computer on and it said the it could not Boot. I put the Operating System CD into the disc drive, shut the machine off and restarted it. The progress bar went to the end but just before going on to the desktop the machine restarted itself. This happened repeatedly.
I removed the 2nd hard drive and the 1st back in. Turned the computer on and it started without issue.
What am I missing?

by on April 3, 2013

Q: My system is dual booted with 7 and XP. For some reason… XP Says I have 128MB of Video RAM…but Windows 7 says I have 256MB. The original OS on my computer was Vista and it said I had 384MB. Is this normal or is there some way I can fix this? I tried setting it in the BIOS, but it made no difference in XP.
