Help RocketRaid 2302 Bios wont update - "version match" by backert1

usb-to-serial port cleanup by horseradish[_2_]
I have replaced my old USB-to-Serial cable that died with a new one, but now I can't reset the COM ports for the new device because the registry/driver settings for the old one are maintaining their "reservations". I can't get the old one to be recognized (which is why it needed to be replaced) so I can remap the old reservations out of the way, and I can't delete the entries in the...

Vista & Wireless Keyboard / Mouse by ShutterMan
Just got a nice wireless keyboard and mouse. Problem is, when the machine is rebooted, these devices dont work anymore. I have to unplug the USB cable of the remote sensing unit, and plug it back in to get the devices to work. Needless to say, this is a pain. This is a Micro Innovations wireless keyboard and mouse, and Im using the latest Vista drivers (according to them).

Creative X-Fi sound card problems in Vista Ultimate 64-bit by Carskick
Hello, I have had this problem on and off. I had blue screens when I first put Vista on the machine, then they subsided after all the updates were installed. That was over 7 months ago. In the past few weeks, I have started having trouble again, and everything seems to be pointing to an issue between Vista and my X-Fi Music Sound card. Basically, the problem is upon returning from sleep...

How can I disable pen taps in Windows Vista Home Basic? by Zaiburst
The 'pen taps' are when you use a graphics tablet (wacom bamboo), and for example you hold the pen down, and the cursor pauses for a moment to animate a circle so that it can open up a menu. This gets in the way of my drawing, since every stroke is paused in this way which can be very disruptive and frustrating. I have searched on how to disable it, and it seems quite easy in the regular...

Laptop screen goes blank after recovery from Sleep Mode by civ2ru
First off, it's a SONY VAIO VGN-FZ180E and I'm running Vista 32-bit. In the last couple of months, I've started encountering an error - the screen goes blank upon recovery from Sleep Mode. Don't remember exactly when it started, and couldn't use System Recovery to roll back that far anyway. The only workaround I've found is either restarting or closing/re-opening the lid. The "Turn off...

CreateDC fails on an independent display by eigers
Hello everyone, I have Vista Ultimate 64 bit with 2 graphics cards. The second card should be an independent display (not part of the desktop), and shouldn't have a monitor attached. However, I still need to create a device context on it. The problem is that CreateDC fails on the second display with ERROR_DEVICE_NOT_READY. On XP the call to CreateDC succeeds. Why is this and how can this be...

Is there a way to change the default synchonization folder in Mobile Device Center? I found a reg-key HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows CE Services\Partners\id\Services\Synchronization\Briefcase Path. When I change that, everything seems to be changed, but after a short while, the old value is back and -worse- the name of designated is changed. Does anyone have a solution for...

Since I purchased my Dell Inspiron with Vista 32-bit (in August of 2007)...
