Save my video project, please!

Newbie video person here, having loads of trouble. I have some video files in .mts that I would like to edit in Windows Movie Maker (or, if I must, in iMovie) and then publish on YouTube or Vimeo. I need to convert them first, since they won't import correctly into either program. What free program do I use to do that, and what should I convert them into to make the editing and then uploading as pain-free as possible? [more inside]

I was ahead of the gaming tech curve once, but now I don't get it. What can I play?

I don't get PC game requirements; I seem to have a mental block on the issue, and I don't think I'm going to get it. I've never had one of those fancy "video card" things. HL2 and Portal work great on my laptop, Bio-shock is sluggish to the point where its playable but I won't bother. What games that were state-of-the-art at the time, but are now older, can I play?

How do I get multiple video and audio outputs on a PC

I would like to connect two external TVs to my PC, each playing its own independent video with audio. The source video files would be located on the PC's hard drive. Would I need two video cards or a single card with dual video outputs? Also would I need two audio cards? Is there a video software that can run in multiple instances that will allow me to select the video and audio outputs for each video to separate the outputs? Can anyone suggest a solution to accomplish this?

What part of my computer do I need to upgrade for DX:HR?

I have Deus Ex: Human Revolution installed via Steam. It runs perfectly... at 800x600. Any higher and it gets choppy. I can run higher resolutions with the lighting effects turned off. Does that mean I can make it better with a new graphics card, with more shading units or whatever you call it? Or is my old-ass Athlon X2 CPU more to blame? [more inside]

How do I stop a hardware beep in my desktop PC?

My IT Help Desk is stumped - can you help me? My computer is making what I can only describe as a hardware beep that I can't turn off. Muting Windows and disabling all system sounds doesn't work. Yet the beep only happens when I do certain things with the software - at first, it was only when trying to save a document into my virtual system in Word, but recently it's every time an email arrives in Outlook, which is just awful. This didn't used to happen, but once, many months ago, I accidentally pressed a random combination of keys and it started. I have no idea how to turn it off - and neither do the IT people. System details inside. [more inside]
