Laptop: HP ENVY 15z j100 (custom)
I have a custom 15z j100 and there a 2 GPU built in the CPU (APU) and another of discrete (Radeon 8750 M 2 GB) and I use mine for the play of light and I was wondering if there is no way to know if my laptop using the APU or the 8750M for games. If so is there anyway I can disable the other and just use the 8750M?
Welcome to the HP Forums!
I understand that you want to know what graphics driver is used, and whether or not you can disable a specific. Go into Control Panel, then Device Manager. Go to your display adapter section and right click on the one you want to disable, and then select "disable."
In this way, you can disable what you do not want to use, and you know who is running! One stone two birds

I would like to learn more about history on my computer vista laptop microsoft and more on maybe the trash and or cookies. For example, someone else used my laptop last night and delete everything that he was looking at or for then how can I know what it was?
Assuming that it has not been removed, you can view the history of visited web sites by clicking on the Favorites button, click the history tab.
The only things in the trash are files or folders that have been removed from the system (no evidence they have been read or something like that).
Cookies will not tell you anything either because they are terms in the code and you can not tell what web site they belong - no good for tracking not web history (and they apply only to the history of the web).
You can view the Start / recent items to display some of the files which were recently seen (assuming that the list has not been removed). That may help some. You can also go to C:\Users\
\Recent for a longer list of recently accessed files (as long as you know the user name).
There is actually very little that you can do with hindsight to see what anyone seen or done on your computer.
If you want to implement such a procedure, use the Parental http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows-vista/Set-up-Parental-Controls control and activity reports control Parentalhttp://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-vista/Set-up-Parental-Controls-activity-reports. Do this for each account you want to track. Then you can check what you wish now that you could check.
I hope this helps.

I have a computer that has used to have windows xp pro. but he told a bunch of virus, and to make a long story short, he now has ubuntu. So I have the product key, but I forgot what service pack there, and I want to use another computer that I need to run windows programs. Is there some way I can find out what service pack is and get a cd for this service pack - no COA - so I can install it on my other computer?
Product key is independent of the service pack.
