    Excellent help, fellas... The Touch interface is broken and the owner is not looking to repair at this point. And I learned quite a bit here... thanks very much for your assistance! :)

    Now all you need is W7 and a SSD in your new to you 30. Trust me money well spent.
    :hi2: Welcome to the 30 club :hi2:

    Blair is correct. I just installed an Intel 335 Series 240GB ssd into my CF-30CAS and loaded W7, following the guide on the forum, and the unit is fantastic, or should I say fast fantastic. It will be money well spent.

    And we, speaking for my friends here and myself, appreciate the feed-back. All to often we answer a question and have NO idea what transpired from there on out.

    You are very welcome..

    Jeff...hey Azrial...need a twin for your unit...:D

    Well I give up! X?%$#
    I really like Windows 7 on my Dell XLP 8500 so I thought why not on my CF-30 MK1.
    Changed to Vista bios downloaded all the drivers and spent way too much time trying to get it all working.
    Ran pretty well but in my book it was still way too "QWERKEY" and I was always trying to get it better but never
    as good as XP.
    Restored to XP and have my CF-30 back the way it is supposed to be.

    I gave up......
