How do I buy an item on Ebay?

Resolved Question (author of this blog is chosen as best answer in Yahoo! Answer)

How do I buy an item on Ebay?
I found item I want, now I guess the dumb question is, if I want it, just enter the minimum bid and wait? Not that I forsee it but can I withdraw my bid at some point?

Best Answer - Chosen by Voters
Well, first thing first --- create an ebay account.
Search for the item you'd like to buy or bid.
You can directly by an item if it has the "Buy Now" bottom.
You need to bid on an item when it displays a "Minimum Bid" amount.
Tip: do not right away bid at a higher amount when the bidding end date is still far; this is to control the end bid at a lower price, unless, you want to secure your bid to get the item.
I haven't tried withdrawing a bid, but I'm sure you'll get a bad rating if you don't pursue or buy your item if you won the bid. I have tried though, to contact the seller days before the end date and informed him that I cant continue bidding and ask for an apology. He acknowledge and accepted my reasons and just relist the item again for bidding, without giving me a bad rating.

Best Answer - Chosen by Voters
Uninstall programs that you don't need through the Control Panel, and always choose to Completely Uninstall so it will automatically remove all the related files and folders. With regards to the personal files of the previous owner, just empty the My Document Files (Videos, Music Pictures and Document Folders). These folders are basically non system files. Music and video files can also be directly deleted from Windows Media Player Library, by opting to delete completely from computer.That's the safest thing I can do, when you can't opt for OS reformat. Good luck!

How to Upgrade Hard Disk Drive?

Well, upgrading the Hard Disk Disk Drive capacity can be done in different options:

1) Replacing your Hard Disk Drive to a bigger storage capacity 250GB~max available), but you need to back-up or save your files in order to transfer them to the new one.

2) Some units have the expandable features, where you can add Hard Disk Drive without removing the existing one. Usually you can see an extra slot in the casing for additional drives.

3) Buying External Disk Drive with even much bigger capacity, and not having to remove your exisiting files.

It will then depend to your preference, but if I am to choose, I'd opt for the External Disk Drive, since it would also offer great flexibility and hassle in installation coz it's just a plug and play function. But then, if you prefer to replace the existing to a new one, you need to follow carefully the installation steps provided by the brand's customer support. Example, for HP Pavilion a1010n Desktop PC, the steps are clearly provided in this link : HP Pavilion a1010n or download the .pdf file at this link: HP Pavilion a1010n HDD Upgrade.

How to Reduce File Size of Picture/Image files (Bitmap & PNG file types) Without Reducing Image Size:

Reducing file size of pictures/image files is needed in uploading activities that require file size limits and even when saving downloaded pictures/images from High resolution digital cameras.

First, determine your picture/image file type – Bitmap (.bmp) & PNG (.png). You can verify this by browsing to your picture/photo files. If your default files do not show the .bmp, .jpg or .png strings as shown in the sample below,

(click image to magnify)

then, do the following:

Take note that the above steps is only to reduce file size by converting .bmp and .png files to .jpg file type, without reducing the image size.  If your image/photo size is too big, then, you might as well just reduce the image/photo size first, before reducing the file size as described in the above procedure.
