Anyone trying 8GB of memory on Vista 64? by Noel[_6_]
I am putting together a new build and since PC-6400 DDR2 is sooo cheap I thought I might consider 8GB on an X38 board. I already have 2x2GB dimms, and was guessing if I went to 8GB it might be nice to have 4 identical DIMMS, which are still available (ie, another 2x2gb of the pair I have now). Anyone have wisdom about this? My main uses NOW are MS Flight Simulator, Gigastudio, and both of...

The only major updates I've had recently was the last Windows Update. I've tried removing the offender, and all my USB controllers and reinstalling them, but it comes back with the same error. I have the...

Vista Sleep Issues by mhornet
I've been having some problems with Vista going to not fully going to sleep and the only way to get it back is to power down and restart. Some times it works fine and others it hangs. How can I tell what program/drivers are still active when the computer is going to sleep? IM guessing its a driver not fully shutting down. Thanks, Mike

How to increase system system performance by Tae Song
I thought I would share this with you all, a few little tricks to boost Windows performance. If you have a spare USB flash drive or you are willing to get a cheap say 1GB flash drive. First we plug in the flash drive. Go to Disk Manager and assign it a drive letter, like Z: (this is just to get it out of the way and optional)

HP Pavillion a1632x by walter deodiaus
I have a HP Pavillion a1632x which came with XP, but was advertised to be upgradeable to Vista. Later on, this option was not supported. This falls on false advertising! Doesn't HP have trial drivers? I called HP, but they don't seem to support Vista for this machine. Last week, I was infected by a virus and was unable to recover my XP OS. I received a copy of Vista at a trade show, and...

Cannot write to drive "Media is write protected" by bogus83
Hi all, This seems to be a new development, and I'm stumped. I've got three internal hard drives- one housing Vista Ultimate x64, one housing Ubuntu 8.04 x64, and one being used for storage for both OS's. Up until recently they've cooperated nicely. Now, the storage drive (drive E:\) will not let me write to it. I cannot rename, delete, cut, or write any new files to any part of that drive. ...
