internal keyboard not working by arnehome
Hi, I "fiddled" with my partitions (deleted one and expanded the remaining one) on my Lenovo T61p laptop and now the internal keyboard and "mousecontrollers" will not work! I have tried connecting an USB mouse and that works. I have also tried a keyboard (wireless USB) but that does NOT work. The keyboard works fine until Vista boots (even in bootselector). I think the problem might be a...

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? --

USB hardware not recognised warnings - when theres no USB devices by Ben G
I have been using Vista for almost 8 months now and have never had any problems until I turned on my PC earlier this evening and noticed that none of the USB ports worked at all.

Boggled, I have unplugged ALL my USB devices, but...

Digital Camera Use by Jeceris
Suddenly my Advent laptop running Vista won't recognise my Canon camera. After successfully downloading photos to the hard drive for months, now, when I connect the camera to a USB port, it makes a sound but there is no window as there usually is to select the required action. Tried a different USB cable, same result. Other external devices, like flash disks, USB printers, work fine. Why should...

Disappering DVD on Vista 32bit by IvanI
hello! does anyone have an idea how to solve the "disappearing DVD" problem on Vista? The only solution I know is putting computer to sleep and then waking it up, but that's just silly, there's gotta be some hotfix or something. -- IvanI

Drive/Controller Stability Tests by DigiNut
Hello, Does anybody know of any tools (available for Vista x64) that can test the stability of a hard drive or drive controller? I'm trying to determine the cause of some blue screens, and I've already run dozens of memory tests, Prime95, rthdribl, FurMark, etc., so I don't think it's the memory or CPU or video, or the sound (tried switching that). And I've noticed that just before the blue...

USB Drive Blue Screen Partmgr.sys by Peter A[_2_]
I know there are threads around on this and similar topics, but they don't help me and I should like to at least identify where a solution should be coming from. I have an external disk housing (Canyon) that connects an IDE disk to a USB port. As soon as I switch the thing on, the system crashes with a blue screen within a couple of seconds. Connected internally to the IDE interface the disk...
