Hi -- I'm trying to install a QMS 2060 printer as a network printer. The printer is of pre-plug & play vintage.

Microphone by JohnA
In trying to set up Skype with a friend using a Mac Book, I am having problems with getting my voice(or sound) to transmit to him unless I use a plug in microphone. He says my computer should have a built-in microphone. I have Toshiba Satellite. I can't determine how to verify there is no built in device. Speakers are great. Any suggestions? thanks

Transfer complete Harddrive to backup hard drive in vista by James Ryel
Good Morning! I have a IDE hard drive with Win XP on my old computer and would like to transfer all files and programs to a spare hard drive in my new computer. The idea is to be able to boot the old hard drive in the new computer. The new computer has Vista 32 ultimate with 4 sata hard drives. At this time only one hard drive is connected. How do I link and preform this task?

LCD screen of laptop needs to "warm up"? by civ2ru
In the last couple of months, I've started encountering an error - the laptop LCD screen is blank upon recovery from Sleep Mode or upon boot. After rebooting or closing/reopening the lid (or sometimes just waiting a few minutes does the trick), it starts working and after that works consistently, it's just the initial "warm up" period from off or sleep state. Any ideas on how to fix it or...
