As for your USB ports, you can purchase USB hub, select how many extra ports you need When you boot up and get "invalid system disk message" you probably have a floppy disk inserted in it's drive To get a quicker startup go to start > run type "msconfig" and you will come to the system configuration utility table, select startup and uncheck the programs you don;t need a at startup Check your mouse drivers, and have it serviced In order to convert a video recording from TV to a digital format you will need a TV card and cd-burner or dvd burner, there is no TV cards for laptops only for desktops.
