Desktop will stay with the current featured threads we have. Garen; of the 2 recommended threads this month one is some trash talking of a notebook and the other is about 3rd party vendors for Memory. I don't think these are good choices to apply universally across the entire Desktop space. Perhaps the objective needs to be revisited and discussed within the team.

Question regarding upgrading my video card

I have an HP Media Center PC m7674n that I bought in 2006. At the time, I upgraded the system to run with an ATI HD X1950 Pro Video card (I believe a bigger power supply was added).   I still really like the computer; however, I want to upgrade the video card to a newer ATI product.   I really like the new ATI, in particular the ATI HD 5000 series but I am unsure on how to proceed based upon what the needs might be.   Thank you.

What is "FACTORY_IMAGE (D:)

I recently purchased an HP (Compaq) for my grandkids with Windows 7.  When I bought it, I was told that it did not come with the Windows7 CD and they offered to make a "Backup" DVD set (which I had to pay for) in case I had problems and had to "Restore" my system.   When I pickup up the computer they gave me the "Backup" DVD set along with the computer.  When I got the computer home and started it up, I noticed that it had the normal C: Drive (455GB) but it also had a 😧 Drive (which is only 9.7GB with 8.2GB used and 1.4GB used .  The 😧 Drive was labeled like this:    FACTORY_IMAGE(D    and has Folders like:  boot, hp, preload, Recovery, System Volume Inforamation and Files like: bootmger, BT_COMPAQ.FLG, CPS.DAT, etc.   My question is:  Is this the original way this computer is shipped from HP or did the Techs at Staples add the "D:" Drive as part of the "Backup" they did of the system?   The reason I am asking is that I want to partition my hard drive into a C: drive (about 100GB) and a 😧 drive (about 350GB) and am not sure what to do with the data in the current 😧 Drive.   Thank you for your help.  Mac   PS:  If I decide just to add a partition, can I rename the current 😧 Drive to say E: Drive, shrink the current C: Drive to 100GB and add a new 😧 Drive?  

HP Advisor version 3.2 for windows 7

I have a HP Pavilion Desktop a6234x and a Pavilion Elite m9040n and have just upgraded them to Windows 7 from Windows Vista.   Both have HP Advisor version 3.1 and it shows I have no virus protection even though I have Microsoft Security Essentials running on both computers.   I understand that there is an HP Advisor version 3.2 for windows 7 can anyone tell me how/where to download Version 3.2?     Thanks Jessie
