HP folds Vodoo into its mainstream

It seems that HP are merging their Vodoo line of games PCs into the mainstream. I wonder if Dell will follow with Alienware. The human synergies aren't so compelling. HP still knows how to design systems and possesses an engineering capability, this is not as obviously true at Dell, and the relative brand values are different.

Windows Help and Support

I've just bought a new computer which I shall be using for music, pictures and for my games, so I am running windows XP on it.

There's been a problem with "Help & Support", it wouldn't start on using the F1. It stated the service was not running and I couldn't find it in the services tab of msconfig. Dell recommended a pcrestore, which since I had aleady done once, I didn't want to repeat. I logged it in the Dell Community forum here... and joe53 referred me to Kelly's Korner tweaks, line 235. This is a registry update. I used this to fix the problem and I have documented my process on the Dell Site. Kelly puts this problem as No 3 in the Top 10 FAQs, although I had not heard of it before.

Thanks to Joe & Kelly.
