Alienware m14x Audio Problems

I have an Alienware m14x R1 laptop. Up until yesterday, it was working 90% of the time and I was really happy with it. The main problem I'm having is that when I'm watching a video the audio makes robotic buzzing and popping sounds, as well as a bit of video lag. The only clues I have are that I have gotten some low memory warnings and that it still does this with or without headphones.

Server Machine Freeze (Windows XP Pro)

Despite the name, this is NOT belong in the Windows Server section.
I have a computer that I use as a server machine for my webpage(s). Lately it's been freezing up after about an hour or so of running. I've done a scan in MalwareBytes, and disabled all start-up programs in msconfig. I've noticed when it freezes, it's only using around 400/1982 MB RAM, and the processor is only at around 34%. I haven't done any Windows updates, and I haven't installed Service pack 3 because it screwed up my install last time and went on an infinite boot loop. I'm stumpted as to what is causing this. Any ideas?

Tens of thousands of files in SEARCH history!

When I go to My Docs - OS Win 7 - and under SEARCHES, I have two sub folders called:
In the first folder there are some 70,000 files and files with weird extension names I have never heard of! :confused:
In the second folder some 75,000 files and folders!
And yet under PROPERTIES it tells me that the each folder has a total of FOUR (4) Kilobytes each? :eek:
But when I was brave enough to block therm all and hit DELETE, it came back saying there were some 69,400 items to be deleted in each folder. They are both almost a mirror image of each other by the looks!:down:
So, a) Where the hell did they all come from - over a period of two years - and b) can I safely delete them and c) how come there are so many items in each folder yet the total size is apparently onl

How to add a search box to search within our website

I use Bluehost for web hosting and have recently started to use Weebly to build our website/online store. I would like to know how to add a search box so our customers will be able to find items within our store (Steve's Lost Land of Toys). I have tried Pico and Atomz but the search results open in a way which we do not want (outside of our website/store). What we are looking for is a search box which displays results like the search on this site "Cyberguys", or like ebay, Newegg, etc.
Thank you for your time and help!!

Urgent problem with a vhs rewinder

I was at a friends church, and they had a yard sale. Not everything was on the main floor. Most of it was in the basement. I found a pretty cool thing: A vintage GEMINI RW3500 AUTOMATIC 2-WAY VHS REWINDER. I got it for free because it was in the "Reject box". It is extremely dusty, and I need to know if it is safe to clean the inside of it with windex, or if it will short it out. Also, I tested it and it does work, however it is takes a while to rewind, and I have to push the lid down a few times to get it to start.

Is it malware?

Laptop is running slow, so I ran a defrag. The disc was 5% fragmented and the defrag didn't solve the problem. I ran disc cleanup. Checked to see if my hard disc was getting full...not even halfway full.
So I tried to run Macafee. It locked up...again and again.
Rebooted, ran disc check (no problems found).
Shutdown all extra processes and tried to run macafee to scan. It locked up and finally crashed. Not once have I seen anything but a white rectangle where the window ought to be. It won't run a quick, full or custom scan. :eek:
Update- everything locked up and I had to power down manually. GRR!
I am currently in safe mode with networking. Will try to run McAfee. *fingers crossed*.
Glad I have backups and a perfectly good desktop.
Is it possible to have malware that causes security softw

Canon Pixma iP300 compatibility with Win 7

My Canon Pixma iP3000 printer worked fine when connected to my HP Vista computer. Now I have an HP p6616f-b with Windows 7 (64 bit) and I cannot find definitive info on the web as so whether or not they're compatible with one another. If they are, I'd need new software. Anyone know if compatible and where I could get software? Thanks

"White Trader" Malware

Hello, first time poster here, have a question with this malware that has been appearing since earlier this week. Every day, this IE shortcut to a website called White Trader appears, I did some research on the company itself and it seems to be just a binary options trading site, I'm unsure of where it came from, however, thanks to some prior research, some other people have been experiencing the same issue, although the severity of their problem is much worse. So far, there has been no interference with any of my programs, both IE and Chrome are working fine, however, I'm concerned and want to end this White Trader business before it turns ugly. Also, I did seem to have some wow.dll (sic) issues with a popup saying wow.dll has failed. However, that hasn't come up for a while now. Below is

"Wireless Network Connection" doesn't have a valid IP configuration

I'm running windows 7 on an HP Pavilion dm4 and I've been trying to connect to the internet and whenever I troubleshoot it gives me the error "Wireless Network Connection" doesn't have a valid IP configuration. I've tried restoring to before the problem came up and ive also tried ipconfig/release, ipconfig/renew and the netsh int ip c:resetlog.txt commands and it still wouldn't work. I can't connect to the internet at all with that computer, even using an ethernet cable, so I can't run a fix for the problem. Any clue how I could fix this?

Need video card

I keep getting the blue screen of death. My computer is telling me that the crash is caused by the video card. It is happening more and more frequently. The computer is probably 3yrs old. It is a cyberpower computer. It has an intel core i7, cpu 960 @3.20ghz, 6GB ram, 64bit windows 7. The current video card is NVIDIA GeForce GTX 550 Ti with the most current driver. What do I have to look for in a new Video card? Do only certain types of video cards work with my computer?
