Using portable devices with Windows Vista Home Premium by Chodko
I have installed Windows Vista Home Premium. When installing from scratch the internal DVD/CD drive is properly installed and working, as are all other devices. But from time to time the DVD/CD simply disappears from the system. Last time : it was changed in a removable disk. I think it has to do with using my Nokia E61i als an external hard disk. The same happens when using my iPod...

Wireless mouse interference by Chosebine
How do you get Windows Vista to activate the screen saver, sleep and hibernation while the wireless mouse is running? If I unplug the USB connection the screen saver sleep and hibernation work normally. I have a Microsoft Wireless Notebook Optical Mouse 3000.

Linksys WMP54G NIC and Connectivity Issues With Broadcom Driver by Chris
I wanted to post some of my testing results with my Linksys WMP54G wireless NIC dropping connection to my WRT54G router. I have been playing with the "Advanced" properties of the Broadcom driver that Vista loads as Linksys does not have any Vista compatible software available for use. I used the Broadcom drivers default settings for about a week and was getting connection drops several...

I have a 1-year old Satellite Laptop with Vista and plenty of RAM & the such. Since last night when I try to click on something there is no response. No right- or left-clicks have any results. This is happening every 5-60 minutes. The only way I can get it to work again is to Control - Alt - Delete to get the Windows Task Manager. I don't have to do anything further once that window...
