  1. Hi, I just bought a fresh cheap 120GB SSD which I already installed Windows in it, when suddenly had the urge to buy a really affordable 250GB SSD (need the extra storage for Uni) which I have paid and received. Is there steps that I could format the 120GB SSD and replace and install Windows in the 250GB SSD in a safer easier way? Its my first time building PC, Thanks!
  2. RANT APPROACHING! As I mentioned in the just bought thread I have a new laptop with windows 8 as the OS. After a fair amount of consideration I would rather have windows 7. Anyway,if I double click on a .avi file (example) the OS brings up xbox video or whatever it is as opposed to windows media player, which is one of those cute full screen "apps". Of course it errors out. Go figure. Thus I get a screen showing me the latest movies and related BS. In order to get back to my "desktop" I have to mash esc, which brings me to the new "start menu". Give me minimize / maximize / close or else. Why are we trying to run an operating system that is https://www.google.com/search?hl=en&rlz=1C1CHFX_enUS529US529&q=optimize&spell=1&sa=X&ei=jjtiUfTWI4WUjAK2g4CwDQ&ved=0CDQQBSgD">optimized for a. touch screen enabled device that does not have a touch screen?

  3. My motherboard is a ACPI-x64 and has PCI E. 2.0 ports. When I have the basic graphics card (AMD HD 7670) it works fine but when I put the my old graphics card (Saphire Radeon HD5870) I get 6 long beeps and a blank screen. I don't know what to do from here. Any help would be delightful.
