    sure? isnt it expensive?

  • ikkenom May 11, 2010

    You'll probably be unhappy with the results -- Windows 2000 is nearly TEN years old -- it will not have "device-drivers" for any "recent" hardware (USB, FireWire, integrated sound/video) that is inside your computer.

You cannot install Windows 2000 directly on this, as there is no Windows version for the SPARC cpu this uses. You can purchase a SunPCi card to install in the Ultra 60 that is basically an Intel computer on a card. Then you can install Windows 2000 - requires a retail copy, not OEM version, of the OS.

Windows 2000 cannot access USB drives for installation.
You need to replace the dead drive with a new IDE or PATA drive. That machine will not accept an SATA drive.

Hi I am Farah, and as I wanted to download java , it came thet" " is not valid win 32 application'. What shoudl I do? Thx


It is possible that you are attempting to install a 64-bit version of Java when you have a 32-bit operating system. Check your operating and confirm this. In Vista you can find this using Start > Control Panel > System. This is similar if you have Windows 7. Here is what it looks like:

If after that you, you follow these instructions from Sun (Java) to locate and install the 32-bit version.

  • Platform(s): Windows 7, Vista, Windows XP, Windows 2000, Windows 2003

SYMPTOMS

While trying to install Java a user gets an error message similar to:
' ... x64.exe not a valid Win32 application'

  1. Go to Manual download

Is it possible to install Windows XP as a second OS on ASUS K61ICX3 Notebook. All my games need Windows XP. Thank you.


Probably. I would check out the Sun microsystems program "Virtual Box"
This is what I use. I have an older (maybe 6 years old) Toshiba laptop which runs Windows XP. I installed Virtual Box and use it to run Windows 7 as a guest system.
Go to this site to get it: http://www.virtualbox.org/

Cervical Cushion- Pillows for Neck Pain Are you a very sedentary person? Do you have a classic office job and are 8 hours or more sitting in front of a computer? Then you most likely suffer from cervical pain. Cervical pain means having severe pain in the neck area because of an incorrect position of our cervix for quite some time. The cervical block or its numbness is due to the unnatural compression of the vertebrae. In this guide you will find all information about cervical pain, how to prevent them and how to cure them, but above all you will learn how to choose your cervical cushion that will help you lessen the pain or make it disappear completely. In the following table you will find some models of cervical pillows that can be found on the market, along with some of the major features that distinguish them. How to Choose a Cervical Cushion Since on the market you can find a great multitude of cervical pillow models, choose the most suitable one and certainly not a small business. First of all, choosing the most appropriate one is to understand what pathology you are suffering from. Although we often call it neck pain, cervical is not always the same in all cases. In this regard, it is understood that not everyone can use the same cushion. There are cases where the patient needs a more flexible pillow, others where there is a need for stiffer material, so before buying your new cervical cushion it would be interesting to consult your trusted physician, who can visit you and decide for you what is best suited to your pathology. Another factor could concern the price, but being in the medical field I recommend closing an eye on this item, ten euros more or less are nothing when it comes to health. Moreover, the price is directly proportional to the quality of the material used and of course there are materials that cost more than others. So as you see there are several factors to consider. Take care of all the advice you'll find on these pages and you too will be able to make the right choice. What is cervical pain and remedies? The area of ??the cervical vertebrae is that portion of our body that accuses so-called cervical pain when our neck or our head is in an incorrect position for several hours. This area is very important for our health and our well-being. In practice it connects our body and especially the spine to the head, with all the nerve endings that pass right in this particular area and very sensitive. When this area is subjected to a continuous stress, we do not only pain neck pain, but we also compromise the proper functioning of the head movement. Very often the pain becomes so strong that besides affecting the neck, it moves to the upper shoulders and joints, causing the famous head turns and also nausea. In the most severe cases a capatina is recommended by your doctor. Among the various factors that can trigger these severe pains are incorrect posture or an improper pillow. At the origin of this evil, however, there are also muscle contractions, trauma and stress. For this reason, the cervical pillow was born, which relieves the pain and allows the neck to be in the correct position. Structure, shape and material are designed to fit perfectly to the shape of the neck, sustaining it and giving it relief.
