Re: Swapping out a NiMh for a LiPo?

Re: Swapping out a NiMh for a LiPo?

Are you continuing using them as emergency fixtures? If yes, I wouldn't bother changing battery technology. In my experience, NiCd does not have a lower life span than other, "newer" type batteries...

Re: Windows XP EoL Security Rollup...or similar?

OS-wise, you are correct. There used to be some SSD-manufacturers that had some trim-like features in their firmware. OCZ (Vertex?) comes to mind for some reason. Don't know if any manufacturers...

Weird. You might need some kind of hardware inventory analyser.

Might be an Elan touchpad. Try this combo Synaptics & Elan package, should work for W7 also.
