    Stoopid question about hard drives - how do I tell which is which?

    Dear Anyone. I know this is stoopid and I should know the answer, be kind! I've got 2 external hard drives attached to my Win10 machine. One's gone dodgy. I know PHYSICALLY which of the 2 it is, so I want to copy all the data from it to the other one BUT - I don't know how to tell which...

    Will Windows 10 still be supported when Windows 11 comes out?

    Dear Anyone. My PC's not the world's most powerful, indeed there's strong rumours it was designed by Flintstone Enterprises. I've read about TCM chips being needed for Windows 11 - it's an operating system, surely the purpose of an OS is to be small and unobtrusive and just let you run...

    How do I stop Win10 thinking my program's hanging when it's not?

    Dear Anyone. I've got a music writing program that has to scan new plug-ins when you install them. I've bought a couple of new instruments, Kontakt and the software Korg M1, which are more complex than the other plug-ins I've been using so take longer to initially scan. It only has to do...

    If I'm using Win7 in XP Emulation mode, can the software still see the extra memory?

    Dear Anyone. I prob. don't know what I'm talking about here, so feel free to tell me! I've got music composition software that was really designed for Windows XP 32-bit, but I'm used to it and want to try to keep on using it. Thing IS - it kept crashing when using posher instruments and I'm...

    Can I install Windows 7 AS WELL as XP on a partitioned 2T hard drive?

    Dear Everyone. You really helped me before, so I'm hoping you can help me again. This question's just as dumbass as the last one... I've got a 2T hard drive. It's been partitioned into two 1T hard drives, so C: and D:. XP's on C:. IF I put Win 7 on D: can I dual boot between the 2 on...

    2 versions of XP on hard drive how to tell which one's being used?

    Dear Anyone. OK, so this is one of those questions where I'm going to feel a total plonker for not spotting the answer myself, so there's no need to point that fact out to me! Hard drive with 2 versions of XP on it. One version won't install my software - a VST synth - it comes up with...

    How can I tell if my software will run on 10?

    Dear Anyone. OK, me dinosaur, I use XP SP3. Why? It WORKS, I love it, it's not bloated, it just happily RUNS. But the world seems to be kicking me towards Win 10 - but I need to know if my music software will work on it. It's Quick Score Elite Level 3, which will mean nothing to anybody...

    How do I install mouse/USB drivers without a mouse to click on things?

    This isn't a reply, it's me again because something odd happened. It told me my question was too much like spam to be submitted and I can't see why. It also says about these poll questions and I had no idea what to put in those boxes, I just put 'yes' and 'no' in so the question got posted...

    How do I install mouse/USB drivers without a mouse to click on things?

    Dear Anyone. Hokay, here's the prob. as simple as I can make it. I've got a fairly modern computer but I have to use XP because my software hates anything else. (It's music software, old but I love it.) Suddenly, the mouse stopped working. So I dug out my Windows 7 hard drive, went online...
