    External drive worked once only.

    I agree on the USB issue hence the test. If the USB port works then we test the cable, then the hard drive compatibility and so forth. Gotta track down the issue one way or another. Could be the drives are just too darn old, who knows.......some bios are finnicky.

    3rd monitor crash

    Apparently to enable ATI EyeFinity the 3rd monitor must be connected through a Displayport. Digerati is right. Eyefinity runs off the installed vid cards only. Details here: How to set up Eyefinity? - [H]ard|Forum

    How to fix overscan with TFT monitor and HDMI output from onboard core i5?

    Agreed. When I went from a 22" to a 27" monitor I ran into that problem. Monitor was running at native res and I have plenty of Crossfired Graphix horsepower but I still had a 2" border around my desktop. So I went online to find a fix. The Catalyst Control Center makes it real easy. Apparently...

    Windows Disk Defragmenter vs. the other same programs.

    well, i remember the built in defrag that came with xp. worked great on C drive but when it came to defragging my storage drives it totally messed up the partition on one and cooked 1/2 a TB worth of data on the other.
