0Ultrabook логотип ноутбук VAIO SonyПолучение внутри Asus A2xxx

I recently had to get inside an old-ish Asus A2500 laptop to investigate an issue with the Компакт-диск-ПЗУ привод (and to upgrade the memory and add a wireless card). Most laptops have a cover above the keyboard that pops off, but on this particular laptop it didn’t seem attached in the usual way.

0Windows Media Player ЛоготипOutputting WMP Videos to second display

When using a PC with a second display (for example a laptop with a data projector) it is often a common problem to find that a video played with Windows Media Player will only display on the primary display, and not on the secondary output.

I’ve recently experimented with the NoScript addon, which enhances security by blocking active objects and scripts unless explicitly approved. However I found that I was forever having to grant permission to every site I visited for it to work correctly.
