Re: linux with vista already installed

It sounds like you have Vista but want to install Linux as a dual boot. Have you ever tried a live CD? A live CD is a CD you can download for free for just about every major distribution. You can run the live CD without installing linux to try it out on your system. If you like it, you can install it from the live CD onto whatever hard drive you wish. Most major linux's installs are graphical just like windows so you shouldn't have any problems. You can get a live CD from most major linuxs'. I recommend Ubuntu because that's what I use and I could help you with it once you got started. You can go to the site and download it and burn it as an ISO.

If there are even Linux drivers for this product, it is likely that they are already included with the distro and thus you do not need to download anything.

the infamous "SMBK Bad!" message. Yes, that's from Smart Boot Manager.
Apparently, it was installed on the master boot record of your hard drive,
and the menu is SMB asking which boot loader you wish to load.

Linux usually boots from either grub or lilo ... you most likely have one
of these already in your linux install. Either can put up a boot menu
that allows you to boot a selected o/s. For sure, the list includes
linux, ME, DOS ... and probably XP as well. So one option is to install
grub or lilo in the mbr and use it. The other option is to put XP's
boot thingy back in the mbr and have it provide the boot menu. I don't
do windows, but I'm sure there are others here who can help with this
option. Option 3: download SBM and re-install it on the hard drive to
restore things as they were before you broke the SMBK.

15vac is pretty normal for a laptop battery. Its likely that your laptops power inlet has malfunctioned and no longer is capable of recieving voltage. Besides, your power terminal should be getting 120vac, it's just your adaptor that reduces the voltage to 15-19 vac usuable for laptop batteries. Also your laptop computer is rather an older model, my mother has one and I've worked with it a while. Laptop batteries also don't last forever, It might be wise to move onto a better laptop.

Please rate my answer.

To remove virus from pen drive

When you plug in your pen drive, don't open the pen drive.
You can see an secondary storage device icon in your 'My Computer'.
Right click the pen drive and scan for viruses.
If you really have virus then the virus, the antivirus agent will show you the virus.
You can kill/delete the virus.
You won't lose any of your data.
( OR)
I have one more option,
If you have linux(Linux Ubuntu, Suse Linux,...) installed in your system, you can login to Linux and
plug in your pen drive, you can delete the virus directly, by opening the pen drive.
Here also you won't lose any of your data.

Internet connection for vista

unfortunately, there is nothing that you can copy and transfer from your XP based desktop. The best solution is to call your provider and ask them for a Vista driver update for your usb modem.

Hope this helps.
