MBR vs GUID - Can I Have Both? by Eric Kolotyluk

Assuming my motherboard is not EFFI and my boot partition is MBR, can I format my RAID 5 with a GUID Partition Table (to get around the 2 TiB limit of MBR) and put an NTFS file system on it? Are there tools in the...

Complete Crash without Blue Screen by Don Deacon
I upgraded to Vista about a month ago and since then my computer (used as a PVR) just keeps crashing. It is not even crashing with a blue screen, it just completely shuts off. After one of these crashes, I can't just power the PC back on either, I have to disconnect the power supply, flip the power switch, reconnect the power supply then boot. I'd swear it was just a HW problem myself but...

old winterm 3000 series cannot connect to Vista Ultimate RDP remote desktop connection by dannypr
I have an old Winterm 3000 series (from around the year 2000). I can connect to a Windows 2003 server using an RDP connection. However, when I try to connect to Vista Untimate using RDP remote desktop I get an error message: Client and Server versions do not match. I assume this is referring to the version of the RDP protocol ( I believe Windows 2003 uses RDP protocol 5.2 and Vista uses RDP...

Vista vs Ati Radeon by Apache -=CW=-
Hi... I'm new to the groups so forgive me if I posted this in the wrong area. I've been running Vista Premium for about 5 months now.

Neither the laptop nor the QuickDock have a parallel printer connection, so I bought a USB parallel adapter and tried to hook it up. The laptop came with a driver for the printer, but when I plug everything in it is only recognized as an "unknown USB device," and the list of ports I see...

After migrating from 2000 to Vista my bluetooth connection between my Laptop (HP/Compaq nc2400) and my mobile (SE K610) disconnects after 5s. It retries every 30s but disconnects again and again... This worked without any problems with Windows 2000, regardless if I had my bluetooth headset connected at the same time or not. Now, with Vista, the laptop cannot even discover the mobile if the...
