I am a curious person who always likes to learn more. I like solving puzzles and I like working with computers. Which means I enjoy some of the more complex questions on this site, as well as the answers which go into details and explain all facets.

comment Why can't I resume my Compaq 615 machine?
Does switching to a different (text) console help? Can you still log in remotely? (E.g. use SSH to connect to your machine and then reset the display).

comment what does mean // directory?
Maybe this comment from unix.stackexchange is the answer: I believe that Windows POSIX compat APIs will also treat //remote/... the same as the UNC path \\remote\... format. – Stephen P Jan 20 '11 at 0:39

comment what does mean // directory?
I just manually set my PS1 and I can not reproduce it with two slashes. Weird. Not with 1, 3 or 4. Only with 2. I am at a loss to explain this.

comment how to get the correct partition to boot
No need to reinstall. If you get logged in then you can either start a shell (or a xterm) and type /sbin/fdisk on the prompt. Or go to a text console (usually Control-ALT-F1/F2...F6. Log in there and type it. Ir run it from a liveOS CD. Or even boot windows (from the windows DVD and use F10 to get a command prompt and use diskpart (select disk 1,select partition 6, active).

What happens if you boot in single user mode? (Either add 1 or single to the parameters when in GRUB).

comment any idea what type of error this is - Machine check / Kernel Panic
Re PSU: Does the problem occur when the system is powered only by the battery ? (Not that 20v to 19v is that huge. Or rather 20-ish volt to 19-ish volt. Usually a replacement works as long the the new PSU can supply at least the same amperage as the old one and it the voltage is close enough. 100% precise matches are not needed).

comment Is there a virtual machine with direct access to CPU and GPU for gaming?
That 2 monitor thing is a good point. I never considered it since I lump PCI passthough to NICs, RAID cards and such. --- Note that most monitors have more than one signal input. E.g. DVI, DP, composite, S-Video and component... Not that switching the input of a monitors between two sources is all that great of an solution.

comment Trying to get 2560x1440 resolution
Drat. Ah well, at least we know the answer. Pasting it here for future reference. "Intel graphics does not support dual-link, therefore 1920x1200 is the maximum for DVI and HDMI, 2560x1440 is only possible with a displayport port. "
