    I use Malwarebytes Anti Malware. I think it is good enough for my current needs. No viruses in my system so far. Been using it in tandem with McAfee AV.

    Will you be using this setup for work or for gaming? 2GB DDR5 is what you usually find for gaming laptops. Try ALIENWARE. They have laptops with these specs.

    who is COMPUTER Engineer here

    I am a computer engineer myself. Most young children are as good at fixing computers nowadays though, so I don't know why you are looking for computer engineers. If you've got problems with computers, let your kids try fix it. You'd be surprised.

    PC Starts but nothing on monitor?

    Check your video card (assuming you have one). Poster above is correct about bad caps. Not only from the mobo side but also from the video card side. I have replaced SEVERAL bad caps on video cards myself. These cheap capacitors usually "puff" open at the top (look for busted/popped/cracked...

    Windows or Linux?

    Linux for work. Windows for playing games. Not much games available for linux (compared to Windows, that is). Dont start me into "WINE runs blahblahblah...". It's just me. Linux=work; Windows=play. ;)

    How do you retrieve files, documents from a laptop HD.

    If this is a SATA laptop harddisk, you can connect it directly to your desktop PC's SATA connector and copy files from there. If you are going to buy an external harddisk usb enclosure, make sure it is the correct type (SATA or IDE).

    Ubuntu or Windows 7

    I use (and prefer) Ubuntu at work. For home use (gaming!) it's gotta be Windows. I don't do dual-boot (or multi-boot). I just have a separate computer for each task.

    Do You Think XP will be Phased Out Eventually- Alternative OS?

    Microsoft IS phasing out XP. But a lot of users (like me) still use XP because of it's simplicity. I guess we really have no choice but upgrade to another OS because most hardware (desktops and laptops) no longer support installing XP. Heck, they dont even have official drivers for XP. We...

    WIN 7 Starter - Suggestions/Comments/Ideas?

    Win 7 Starter is by design a very limited version of Win7. Bypassing the limitations will just probably be a waste of time. Why not try Linux as others have pointed out?

    slave and master in hhd

    Rubbish? The question was: "i have a harddrive which is in master, will my CDrom should be slave". Of course the cd-writer being ATAPI should NOT BE PLACED on the same cable as a faster drive (hard disk). It is always best to separate your harddisk from your optical drives IF YOU HAVE 2 IDE...
