CharlieSpencer_Palmetto February 10, 2013 at 8:22pm PST Second, try reposting this in the 'Q&A' forum. The 'Discussion' forum is for matters of general discussion, not specific problems in search of a solution. The 'Water Cooler' is for non-technical discussions. You can submit a question to 'Q&A' here: http://www.techrepublic.com/forum/questions/post?tag=mantle_skin;content There are TR members who specifically seek out problems in need of a solution. Although there is some overlap between the forums, you'll find more of those members in 'Q&A' than in 'Discussions' or 'Water Cooler'. Be sure to use the voting buttons to provide your feedback. Voting a '+' does not necessarily mean that a given response contained the complete solution to your problem, but that it served to guide you toward it. This is intended to serve as an aid to those who may in the future have a problem similar to yours. If they have a ready source of reference available, perhaps won't need to repeat questions previously asked and answered. If a post did contain the solution to your problem, you can also close the question by marking the helpful post as "The Answer". + 0 Votes Hardware incompatible mjd420nova February 10, 2013 at 10:18pm PST Since the advent of Vista, M$ has actually written programs that will not run or install on older hardware. All the way up to XP PRO, M$ let the third party provide the hardware and software for optional equipment. Then they decided they wanted it all supported by the OS and then the driver wars began again. Yes, it can be hard to figure out what hardware is not meeting or responding to the OS needs but a little sleuthing could reveal a memory fault or a jumper not set right. + 0 Votes Does anyone else hate answering people that type in all caps?

Does one just use bigger type, or is there something else one can do in some such alphabet?
