Collection of 34 very quick "How To'
« on: December 24, 2008, 11:05:08 PM »

34 very quick "How To" titles.

All of these can be accessed from the same page from the link below.
None of which should take more than a couple of minutes.
Some of the "How to's" involve entering and adjusting the registry, so be warned, "Backup the registry before altering anything" (*)
Any that involve altering the BIOS should only be performed by a PC competent person, or irrecoverable damage can result if not done correctly. (x)

Some of the "How to's" also involve installing a third part program which a link may not be supplied, so just copy and paste the suggested program title into your search bar and search for the program.

Although I can't vouch for all of them, most that involved altering the registry were tried and had "NO adverse" effect on my PC.
