Green Screen crash by jremmc
New HP 8510p laptop with ATI Radeon Mobility HD 2600. Vista Business. Got it last week. Twice a day for last 3 days laptop has unceremoniously crashed as I am working in it (IE 7 and Outlook 2007 open). But instead of getting BSOD I get a green screen (with "sort of" light black vertical lines). No text on it (e.g. no error message like BSOD provides), just ugly green screen. The physical...

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?" Now, if say yes, it brings up the "format disk" box, but shows the capacity as...

Standard OpenHCD USB Host Controller (Code 12) by akagiredsun1
I'm suddenly having USB device issues, and upon closer examination, my OpenHCD USB controller is now giving me a Code 12 (This device cannot find enough free resources that it can use.) 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...

Microsoft Keyboard Elite for Bluetooth passkey registry fix? by Peter
Does anyone know a way to fix the registry to re-enable the "Do not use a passkey" feature in Bluetooth Devices? With build 5536 that option has disappeared for keyboards. I need it simply because these keyboards/mice wont handle more than one passkey at a time, which is a real bind in a dual or triple boot situation. It means removing/reinstalling the darn keyboard every time I switch OS's...

Microsoft WPD FileSystem Volume Driver - On every bootup by DevilsPGD
Every time I reboot, I get a prompt asking for permission to install "Microsoft WPD FileSystem Volume Driver", every time I do, and all is well until the next reboot. If I choose "Ask me later" my card reader doesn't work, so it appears likely that I do want this driver installed. Any clues why I'm prompted on each bootup for the same driver? --

How to initialize new HDD? Not found anywhere (as admin). by Gerald Abrahamson
Vista 64 Home Premium. Where is the tab/command to initialize (fdisk?) a new HDD? I am logged in as Administrator (system says so) with full control/permission. I can see the hard drives in the Device Manager/Disk Drives. All drives are "good" per the controller and I can see them as physical devices on the computer.

2nd harddisk for dv7-3020 by Alan Whimp[_3_]
I bought an HP Pavilion DV7-3020sa a week ago which has 2 HDD areas but only 1 HDD fitted.

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...
