Vista 64 and Logitech G7 Mouse... by AstaLaVista
After reading a bunch of threads here and somewhere else, I found out that the only way for some of my G7 mouse button options to work under Crysis was to make my G7 mouse run as an admininistrator, I did that and it worked perfect but now, everytime I restart or reboot Vista, I have to go to the obnoxious process of allowing and comfirming to Vista that I want to run the mouse as an admin. Is...

Price vs. Performance by Vista Newbie
I am shopping around for an external USB hard disk drive. When I compare several models, most, if not all, specify the speed as "Up to 480 Mb/sec". I know this is a theoretical maximum but I am trying to ascertain what criteria to use to determine what the best value is. For example, I am interested in a 320GB drive. My laptop: Windows Vista Home Premium x64 Intel Core 2 Duo T9300...

Microsoft Wireless Optical Mouse 2000 stops responding by Michael K.[_2_]
Hi all, After switching users or logging off my mouse (Microsoft Wireless Optical Mouse 2000) simply does not respond. The only way to recover is by unplugging the receiver's USB cable and re-inserting it again. I did all the steps described in this article (http:// support.microsoft.com/kb/321122/en-us) but it didn't help. I also installed the IntelliPoint software but again no luck.

Windows has recovered from an unexpected shutdown by moonraker
My Gateway GM5410 is experiencening the same shutdown problems. As long as I move the mouse every two or three minutes it is fine. If I don't move the mouse for 5 or 10 minutes, it shuts down with the Blue Screen of Death then comes back up with the message Windows has recovered from an unexpected shutdown. -- moonraker

poss solution to generic volume and usb drive problems by GDS
was having a hell of a time trying to get my Vista x64 system to recognize all of my card readers and my usb hubs. For the USB hubs it would recognize 2gig or less flash drives but nothing over that and when I opened "my computer" I didn't see the typical list of all the 'virtual drives' I was used to seeing. I tried redoing the INFCACHE.1 trick, and edited my registry to point to system32...

DVD Writer will not burn by Joseph Macari
I built a new box, with Vista64. My DVD writer (LG Super Multi, Model GH22NP20) will read DVD's, CD's, etc., but will not burn DVD's (using Vista app, not other software). My previous box had no problems performing burn tasks (Phillips DVD burner). Could the problem be the media I am using, i.e., it is 4x, LG burner lowest write speed is 6x., or could it possibly be a bad drive. Any help...

I recently added a second tv tuner card to my system and had trouble installing the drivers for it (their .inf file had the wrong subID) but while working on this problem, my 9 in 1 internal card reader got messed up. It has 1 USB thumb drive port and the other 8 slots are for camera cards. The USB port works fine but the others do not and looking in Device Manager, I see the yellow marks next...
