    I figured it out, all you have to do if you have the KVM switch that I have which is:

    Brand: Cables Unlimited
    Model: SWB-9000

    You press twice fast [SCROLL LOCK] on your keyboard and the [UP] or [DOWN] arrow once.

    [SCROLL LOCK],[SCROLL LOCK],[UP]
    or
    [SCROLL LOCK],[SCROLL LOCK],[DOWN]

    I hope this helps anyone who has the same problem.

Doesn't your KVM switch have numbers? Make it easy on yourself and hold down SCROLL LOCK and hit the corresponding number to which the PC is connected to. When you hold down SCROLL LOCK, you'll hear a bunch of beeping sounds, hit the number and it'll switch to the PC of your choice.

I'd like to install a version of Linux on my laptop. I am a beginner; what ill fit me and how to install it?


For a beginner the best version of Linux for a laptop remains UBUNTU. But you can count on LINUX MINT and the latest version of it is called JULIA.
You can find UBUNTU here. And LINUX MINT here.
The BOTH can be installed via installation DVD and for both also you can TRY BEFORE INSTALL, meaning you can run the version of LINUX LIVE, taste and test it before you will install it on your hard drive.

I need to make sure port 3074 is open for xbox live but dont know how to do it.


You can use the netstat -a command to find out which ports are open on a local Linux/Unix or Windows system (Figure 1), but netstat can't be used remotely across a network. netstat.gif

FIGURE 1: The netstat command can be used from the Linux or Windows command line to check on
open ports on the local computer.

If 3074(TCP & UDP) port is not opened on the router, refer: http://www.netopia.com/support/hardware/technotes/CQG_025.html for further step-by-step assistance.

For any further help/support, revert!

Thanks for asking..

How do i update my firmware


It is pretty easy. If running Windows just download the Sansa Updater (see link below) and install it.

Then, use the Mac/Linux instructions (even if running windows!) to put the e260 into MSC mode- turn e260 on, switch e260 hold switch to on, press and hold the e260s LEFT button "<<" while you plug the USB cable into the e260.

For me (running Windows XP) the Sansa updater automatically detected the e260 then and updated the e260's firmware.

Links to the updater, and alternative complete instructions for Mac/Linux are here
