CD/DVD Drive disappearing from drive list by John Monahan
I have a weird and frustating problem with both my DVD drives disappearing from the drive list with Vista. Sometimes both DVD drives are on the Windows Explorer list. Other times times they are both absent. It's not a problem withWindows Explorer since they are absent using say PowerDisk Pro6 as well. It seems to be random. If I do a complete reboot they are usually there next time. I am...

=4GB ram=3d display problems with nvida based video card by Ward Taylor
Good Day After upgrading my system from 2GB to 4GB of ram, I am having problems with applications that display anything in 3d. This includes unreal tournament as well as the built-in vista "media center" and aero. I do not run with aero enabled, but tried it just as a test. After a reboot, I can load an application that uses 3d once, and it will work fine, game plays great, or I can watch...

"Base system device" snag by Khussey
I have an HP DV2020ca Turion 1.6, 2gb RAM, etc etc. Everything works fine (never even had the dreaded audio bug) except for my built-in mic and headphone/spdif/mic ports. As far as I know, it uses the conexant audio system people seem to be having all kinds of problems with. Just wondering if anyone else has a similar laptop with the same problem, and if they've found a solution.

"Battery not detected" says Vista, I don't agree by Viktor
Hi When I installed Vista Business I didn't have a battery on my laptop since I had just ordered a new one. When I got the battery I inserted it to the laptop and it works perfectly but it is not detected by Windows. Vista says: "No battery is detected" and it doesn't matter if the power cable is plugged in or not. Any ideas on how to detect the battery? (Removing and inserting the battery

"Bluetooth Peripheral Device" -- MANY Problems by Marcus
I have been trying to install a brand new bluetooth mouse and keyboard on the system, both Microsoft products, with nothing close to success. Inevitably, the computer claims an inability to find drivers for the "bluetooth peripheral device," which came with the set. I have upgraded to Intellitype 6.1 and point the machine in the direction of that program when I am prompted to do so, to no...

"d" drive is full by tv
I have a new HP computer with Vista and have the dual core c and d drive. It says my d drive is 100 percent full (recovery drive) How do I fix this? My computer is only a month old and I've been getting window errors already and I can't go back to an earlier date for recovery either. I think I need to do a whole system recovery.

"Full range" not working for 5.1 rear speakers by Slythe
Uhm yeah im not sure how to actively suggest something to the error-fixing people of Microsoft but I have a bug of sorts to report - When using 5.1 speaker configuration the option under audio configuration of full-range satellites does not appear to work for rear satellites whether enabled or not. The result is drastically limited range on rear satellites whether you like it or not. I...

"Ghost CD" Drive by Mossie
Hi. I have 2 DVD drives in my PC, a DVD-ROM and a DVDRW. However in explorer there are 3 drives, my burner (F:), the ROM drive (G:) and a CD-ROM drive (M:). I have a card reader which shows as "Removable Disk" with drive letters I, J, L and N and an external Hard Drive, partitioned into H: and K:. I thought at first it might be seeing one of the card slots as a CD drive, but...

I put a SATA2 disk on it, and when I installed vista (with the controller in SATA mode in the bios (asrock 939Dual-SATA2 board)), Vista detected the controller and loaded a default driver, and the install took about 3 hours.

"Intel(R) PRO/Wireless 3945ABG Network Connection" driver installa by Quantum Mechanic
I got a message from vista saying that the previous driver of this device had caused a problem. I downloaded the new driver but for some reason Intel doesn't support home users installing these drivers (probably washing their hands of responsibility for possible problems with their installation software) and this driver is not self extracting or installing and is just composed of .zip...

"Magnifier" Mouse & Vista? by Bob Newman
I own a Microsoft Comfort Optical Mouse 3000 with a "magnifier" button. When activating the magnifier feature the screen goes blank and it takes several seconds before it comes back up on the screen. This is similar (or the same) as the times Vista will ask you permission to run a program and then starts shortly thereafter. Microsoft says this procedure is "normal" when using Vista (it's...

"Merge" 2 partitions, C:(data) & D:(OS) Vista Business 32bit by Lucious
