BSODFilter: I tried to install a RAM upgrade in my girlfriend's Dell Inspiron 1100 laptop, and got nothing on screen after powerup. So I replaced the old DIMM, and got the BSOD -- the file that was missing was a driver for the Intel video adapter. Long story short, it's still not working. [more inside]
I need help in identifying this RAM module. Ideally I would have taken a picture and just posted it here but I'm one of the few people remaining who don't yet own a digital camera, so I'll just note down what's written on it and hope that someone can make sense on if it.

PC performance issues. 1) Is it a good idea to fill up all 3 of my DIMM slots, when my motherboard manual says that the max speed will be DDR 200 instead of DDR 400? The motherboard is an ASUS K8V SE Deluxe. 2) How do I best identify the bottlenecked hardware component that's causing framerate jerkiness e.g. when playing Oblivion (e.g. RAM, processor, AGP card)?

Shopping for a cheap used laptop: What are the minimum specs I should be looking for with respect to CPU, RAM, HD? I'm planning to use WinXP (maybe I'll settle for 2K), Open Office, and FireFox (including some AJAX-heavy web sites such as gmail, Google Docs, del.icio.us), with a wifi card. And not much else. I want to avoid "I'm always waiting for this stupid slow computer!" but not spend much more than the minimum needed to avoid that.

Do I have to add RAM in matched pairs to my dullard of a Dell Dimension 110? I've gotten conflicting information and don't know who to believe. I need to finish this post haste to meet a client deadline and I'm freaked at the prospect of ruining my computer, dismal as it is. I've got 256 and I'm trying to add another 100.
I want to upgrade my pc's memory, but I noticed 6400 is the same price as 4200, and I can use the ram to in a faster system later. Does faster ram (400mhz) 6400 underlock to (233mhz) 4200? Gskill has 2 gigs for 187 on newegg, 5-5-5-15, why my system ram is ddr2-4200 4-4-4-12.

I'm trying to work my way through the activation process for my new RoadRunner service. The flash wizard that analyzes my computer tells me that I have only 127 MB of RAM, 1 short of the necessary 128 to continue setup. My computer disagrees with the wizard. Is it even possible that this is the case? If so, how do I get back my essential 1 MB?

I snapped this picture
of a plane on a typical approach for landing at Dallas-Fort Worth airport. Upon closer inspection, I noticed a small propellor deployed under the plane. Googling taught me its a ram air turbine that is used for emergency power during a hydraulic/electrical failure.
Does anybody know if its used under normal conditions, or did a happen to snap a picture of a plane during an (unpublicized) emergency landing?

I've just purchased 4 sticks of PNY 512MB PC3200 DDR 400MHz RAM (2GB). Where can I find a Dell server that will accept this RAM? I don't mind used computers and I'd like to keep it under $500. Finding which RAM to put in a given machine is easy. But I'm struggling with finding all the machines that will accept my RAM.
I prefer Dell but some other server with nice case design (tool-less entry, etc) would be considered. Pentium or AMD please.

Peeking into Activity Monitor in Mac OS 10.3, I am noticing that Firefox is using more than 130 of my 512 megabytes of RAM, along with more than 450 megs of virtual memory. This is with one window open with three tabs (this page, a blog, and GMail). Do I have some setting set incorrectly or is Firefox a shamless RAM hog? Is there another browser that might leave me with more memory for Word, Excel, Entourage, Photoshop, iTunes, etc?
