    I had a hardrive failure on my boot drive, so need to re-install everything. I have tried numerous times to load Win 8.1 with no luck. I have tried from a DVD and also from a flash disk. I have also tried 2 different ISO sources. Installation goes fine, but on reboot it gets stock on the "setting up devices" screen.
    Any suggestions?
    It needs the latest BIOS to be able to run 8.1 without disabling the lan.

    -1TB hardrive

    My problem is that the PC freezers when I have Corel Draw, Outlook, Excel open at the same time.

    I need advice as to how to overcome the freezing up of the PC.

    Can or should I upgrade with a better/faster processor (seeing that it is only 9months old) or should I rather just get a better/faster PC?

    Advice/assistance will be appreciated.!
    CPU built into mboard so u cant upgrade cpu to my knowledge.

    While it is an awesome piece of hardware, it is not really suited for the task.

    You may want to consider a dedicated graphics card add-on (you will need a low profile).

    I am not saying it wont work, but it is almost like using a Beatle to transport a rugby team.

    Whenever you get advice on what to buy, make sure that your advisor understands your needs clearly.

    Thinking of buying these bluetooth headphones from takealot for my openelec machine.

    1. Has anyone managed to get a bluetooth dongle working on openelec
    2. Is this headset any good?
    I came. I saw. I concurred.

    Rather buy a BT transmitter with a 3.5 plug and plug it into the TV.
