Card Reader won't read 2Gb SD card by jammiedodger80
Installed Vista yesterday, and the only thing I'm having trouble with is my card reader. It'll read all of my 128mb, 256mb, 512mb and 1gb SD cards no problem, but won't read my 2gb card. Instead, it gives the message "you need to format the disk in drive X: before you can use it. Do you want to format it?"

jumping curser by Michele Green
I do not have a touchpad. I have a Dell Inspiron with Windows 7. I have had to replace the harddrive twice in this machine in 2 years due to fatal crashes. The new harddrive was installed less than 2 weeks ago. Since the installation, my curser moves itself, seemingly at will, while I am typing. Almost every other word has to be altered due to the curser moving to another spot. HELP PLEASE

Vista loses drivers by harmonp
Why is it that Vista can't hang on to drivers that have been successfully installed. I have an HP laser printer and an HP All-in-One. Both have Vista drivers which have been installed and both work correctly...for a while. Periodically, Vista says it needs to look for new drivers, then it can't find the drivers, and I'm tied up for hours trying to get Vista to recognize one printer or the...
