I would be grateful to you if you can help me understand why my PC sometimes starts in an abnormal fashion. Mostly, Windows 8 boots smoothly, but sometimes it shows Gray or blinking screen before the login window appears. What I have to do is restart it 4-5 times so that it reverts back to normal booting style. I am not sure if it is affected by wi-fi or wireless mouse? I see fixing recommendation by the system sometimes as I restart on and on but it warns me of removal of data, so I simply cancel it. Please advise and help me solve it.

 I would like to have a dual boot on my PC. Currently, I have Windows XP in Drive C. There are 2 other partitions that I have, Drive D and Drive E. Will I be able to install Ubuntu on Drive D? Will it prompt later to which drive to boot after I am done?

I replaced my Windows OS with the Lubuntu distro. Lubunto does not always boot up completely. When it tries to boot, it only shows a white thick line across the bottom instead of displaying icons for the desktop, the browser etc. at the bottom of the screen. Does anyone know what's happening and how can I correct the problem?

I setup my computer to have a motherboard with 4 Xeon/4Core processors and with 48gb of memory. Now, I need to choose the operating system to install on it. Is there a 64-bit OS that can support my current motherboard setup? I will be using the computer as a stand-alone and not as a server.

I have not tried a Chrome book yet and I'm curious. I know a Chrome device may be used for other things aside from browsing the web. What are its advantages over a PC or a Mac? What are the applications that it can run? If it does not support applications like Skype or MS Office, are there application replacements available?

Is there a way I can find out how to get a list of used ports in Windows or Linux, or maybe on both? Is there a utility where I can view the display ports used by different programs? I tried to use netstat -a but it only displayed the ports used by the TCP. Any advice on this one?

I am trying to install Zorin 8 in Virtualbox but it's giving me problems. It boots to the Zorin 8 disc when I click start and I can choose the install prompt ( Start the installer directly ), then it locks up. Am I doing something wrong? Any help is appreciated.

My desktop computer is running on Windows XP with two internal hard drives, both are 127GB. The second drive (Drive E) is primarily used for backup. I'm planning to make a dual-boot system with my primary HDD keeping the OS and my current files while run Zorin off of drive E. I have Zorin OS 6 Business. I would appreciate any input on how to accomplish this.
