I have bought a new 'barebones' desktop unit from Novatech, Box with Power Supply, Ram and Mobo with Dual Core CPU fitted. I've swapped all my bits over (hard drive, dvd and such) but although after boot it seems to load up windows and gets to the screen where I choose a user, I can't move the cursor across the screen, although the boot says Mouse enabled. All the bits I'm using are from my Dell. I was expecting my XP to work from my hard drive,I have no XP disc with my Dell.Do I have to buy XP again or do I use Linux. Does anybody use Linux and is it worth changing from Microsoft? B.J.

Having built myself a new system- 10 yr old ATX-Old case- repainted- give it treat-Novatech Mobo bundle TB harddrive existing power and DVD etc] installed Ubuntu 10.10 from disk and goes very well all as described in my earlier. A fly in the ointment? There is one for me at the moment - getting the printer to run- lots of help from the members of -
A good place to go in addition to here. My printer is an oddball [Dell badged colour laser] so may be your printer is catered for.
