    I looked on ebay yesterday and couldn't find anything that matched. What keywords did you search for?

    Is anyone getting audio via HDMI? I'm only able to get video, if you have audio working, what do you have to do to enable it?

    My laptop just arrived. Audio does travel over HDMI though, I do it with my ps3.

    Click start, type "devmgmt.msc"
    Expand System devices
    Scroll down to find your chipset.
    Right click and choose properties
    Go to the driver tab

    I actually didn't search for any type of computer. 99% of laptop cd drives are interchangable. I have never encountered one that wasn't. (I have had to move the hook thing before, but thats just taking out 2 screws and sticking them in different holes).

    I don't know that I want refurbished. With some things I don't mind, but with a cd drive I think that might just be looking for trouble. I also don't really have the money to buy either right now, but maybe in a few months.

    A dollar saved is a dollar earned, oh, is that a BD player, or burner?

    Try using "Speccy" from Piriform.com.
    It's free and from a respected source.

    Oh, and can somebody advise me on increasing my ram at a fair price? My 3000 has 4Gig (2x2), with 2 slots, probably the same with most of you.
    Can I have a 2 and a 4? Should it match what I have? I mostly edit video, and my hardware knowledge has it's limitations.

    I didn't need 8GB, but it was like a $200 (might be wrong) to upgrade from 4-8 and I looked on newegg which typically has the best ram prices and for DDR3 ram in a 4 gig stick was like $250.

    So while I probably don't need all 8 now, sometime in the next 3 years I'm going to want it so I bought it now.
