Psuedo Hybrid Drive by Ben-8151
I am planning a Vista64 Home Premium build and have a few questions about increasing the performance of the OS. Due to the lack of availability of 3.5" Hybrid Desktop Hard Drives I am looking at the ReadyBoost feature of Vista. Obviously a Hybrid drive would cache data to allow better use of the SATA bus by bursting the data at high speed. I am trying to figure out if I can substitue...

Please read, cross post: dim primary monitor by benfield
My computer will, 30 seconds after I log into windows, make the entire screen except the cursor go dim. It looks similar to when UAC dims the monitor to focus on a specific prompt, but it is perpetual, and the only think highlighted is the cursor. This occurs regardless of the resolution of the monitor or whether glass is on or off. Oddly, the dimmness only affects the primary monitor. I have...
