Switching from AMD to Intel?

 This is a GREAT question!. To switch to Intel you need a new motherboard - be sure it is for the processor you choose. If you pick a processor in the Intel (which you should - it is the current line of processors), you need a board for Intel processors. A board made for Ivybridge or Sandybridge processors won't work, because the CPU sockets are different.

Your RAM is fine. RAM is RAM, it works fine with both. (I sure do hope it is 2 sticks of 4GB, and not one 8GB stick! The DDR won't work with one stick, and the computer will be slower.) Same with your power supply - it works with both. You do not need to buy Windows 8 again - you just install it again.

You DO know that regardless of processor (AMD or Intel), you can still use your AMD graphics card. You only have to get an NVidia card if you want one. An AMD card works fine with AMD or Intel processors; AMD or Intel processors work fine with NVidia OR AMD graphics.

How do i connect wifi to tv?

It's quite possible the TV does not have WiFi built in - most are Ethernet-only. 

Some will work with WiFi if you plug the makers specific type of WiFi stick into the TV USB socket. 
That's probably what you need to do to enable the WiFi configuration. 

However, using WiFi for anything non-essential is a really bad idea.. Use Ethernet if at all possible, or Home-plug adapters.

What is a good web-site?

A good site will have valid semantic coding ( basically clean coding ) 

It will also be easy to navigate and built using html or xhtml and css.. obviously that does not include other languages, for example javascript. 
  • A good site will look good in all major browsers, Chrome, IE7, IE8, IE6, opera, safari, firefox etc etc .
  • A good site will have a clean design and be understandable, when you see it, you will know what the site is about. 
  • A good site will not be built out of tables.
  • A good site will be hand coded, you can use wysiwyg editors to help you, but only in code view. 

There are loads of different ideas on what a good website is, but these are the very basics.

Opening an online store?

Yes it can sound so easy to sell online but it can be so complex.

I started out writing about safe baby products v's the dangers of chemicals contained in standard products. I did courses to build a website in which I completed.

Getting traffic to a website is no easy task without it costing you a lot in the process. I did Search engine optimization, social marketing, email marketing and getting back links. Still traffic to my site was building slowly - too slowly.

Setting up a shopping cart and merchant account proved to be an added expense that I couldn't afford to do especially in line with the limited traffic. So another spanner in the works!

Finally I got smart - Stopped trying to do the entire thing online and began promoting my work with a more combined approach. I now promote Eco Friendly Products & incorporated the information on my website via classified adds, Newsletters, face to face marketing & telemarketing.

This way it isn't costing me as much time, money and I am not totally dependent upon website traffic. So I can earn my income in a variety of ways. I don't actually sell anything - I just introduce people to the company I promote and train people that want to do the same thing.

No problems with complaints, technical website difficulties, merchant accounts etc.

So start of slowly - If you do want to do something with pets - buy your domain name and link it to a free wordpress blog - possibly work promoting pet products with an affiliate program.

See whether you can build a little traffic first - that way you are not investing anything in setting up webhosting and your not buying stock etc. But no matter how easy people make it sound - It isn't!

Good luck with it Julie Hodges

It took me a year to discover a good company to represent. I wanted safe, high quality & affordable eco friendly products. I wanted something that I didn't get hassled with in dealing with complaints, returns, and website hassles.

You will see how I have been able to use my information site along with the promoting of eco friendly products.

Before you invest in anything this link has an information box - scroll down it is called When Making Decisions on home business. Some of the thoughts and ideas may help.

How reliable the online shopping sites are?

While there is no way to guarantee that you are dealing with a legit site, there are "red flags" to look for in a fake sites. 

1) Payment options, do they include Western Union, moneygram, paypal and bank transfer? Some scam sites will accept credit cards but most prefer those 4 options which are anonymous for the scammer to pick up the cash and disappear. 

Western Union and moneygram do not verify anything on the form the sender fills out, not the name, not the street address, not the country, not even the gender of the receiver, it all means absolutely nothing. The clerk will not bother to check ID and will simply hand off your cash to whomever walks in the door with the MTCN# and question/answer. Neither company will tell the sender who picked up the cash, at what store location or even in what country your money walked out the door. Neither company has any kind of refund policy, money sent is money gone forever. 

Paypal can only get your money back if there is money left in the scammer's paypal-linked bank account. Scammers know this and will immediately withdrawal your money and disappear. No money in the scammer's paypal-linked bank account means absolutely no possibility of refund for you. 

Your bank can only get your money back if there is money left in the scammer's bank account. Scammers know this and will immediately withdrawal the money you transferred. No money in the account means absolutely no possibility of you getting your hard-earned money back. 

2) Contact options, is it a free email address such as gmail, hotmail or yahoo? Is it a chat box? Scam sites will rarely list a phone number or street address. 

Scammers love to create free email addresses and rarely will use a paid server. Email is easy to ignore and block and free email addresses are easy to open and close completely anonymously. Chat requests are easy to block via ip address. 

3) Shipping options, do you actually get to choose the option at check out? Fake sites will frequently say "free shipping" and "tracking numbers emailed" but, if they ship anything at all, will use the post office, cheap, slow and no account number needed. 

Fake sites will frequently show icons for UPS, FedEx, DHL and TNT but then at check out will "ship" via EMS, the Chinese post office. If they send a "tracking number" good luck getting it to work on the EMS website. You will need even more luck trying to contact EMS when your tracking stops and your "package" is lost somewhere. 

4) The icons at the bottom of the page, are they just copy/pasted pictures or links to actual sites? 

Fake sites will often have icons for Verisign, McAfee, Paypal and other companies at the bottom of the home page. Those should be live links to that company's website. Fake sites can't risk linking to real sites so they just use badly copied pictures instead. 

Whenever suspicious or just plain curious, google everything, website addresses, names used, companies mentioned, phone numbers given, all email addresses, even partial sentences from the emails as you might be unpleasantly surprised at what you find already posted online. You can also post/ask here and every scam-warner-anti-fraud-busting site you can find before taking a chance and losing money to a scammer. 

There are scam busting sites with online lists of the names scammers use, thier email addresses, stock copy/paste emails, paid-for-in-cash cell phone numbers, stolen pictures and fake websites they use. You could start your search at one of those sites.
