DVD-RW won't read disk by Chris
I have a DVD-RW drive that I have used to record several CDs and DVDs. Recently one of the DVDs will not open, the drive is reading it as a blank disc. When I insert it in the drive, after a few seconds the Blank Disc Options menu pops up. When I go to My Computer and click on the F Drive, it reads the disk and then says "No Files". But when I first go to my computer and look at the F...

Memory less than that installed by Chris
When I look at the system from the control panel it shows I have 3324Gb of RAM yet when I look at the system BIOS it shows I have 4Gb installed, which I do. When I look at the RAM on my Windows XP laptop it shows 512 Mb of RAM which is correct. What gives?

USB Ports not working by Chris
Okay, I had a linux computer, but i upgraded it to vista home basic. Now I try to plug in my usb wireless adapter, and nothing happened. No lights, nothing. I tried with my usb pen, to see if that worked. I tried it in all the ports. Nothing. I checked the BIOS, and set it to recognise plug and play devices. Still nothing. Is there something I am missing?

Dell Axim - no love? by Chris Barnes
Ok, it's not a spring chicken. But neither is it ready to be bronzed and thrown away. It's a Dell Axim X5, running PocketPC v 3.0. would sync PERFECTLY w/ WinXP, using AS4.5. But now Vista is simply rude and tells me that WM versions older than 2003 are unsupported???

SOLVED: SigmaTel Audio problem in Windows Vista Ultimate by Chris Benton
This applies to Dell systems that use the on-board SigmaTel audio device, particularly XPS systems, but it may work for others, as well. When I upgraded from XP to Vista Home Premium, my sound worked fine. Running the Anytime Upgrade from Home Premium to Ultimate, however, knocked out my sound.
