Automatic Device Backup by CiarĂ¡n McK
Is there any utility that will automatically backup an external device, such as a usb flash drive, to the hard drive.... perhaps as an autoplay option? Because that might relieve my constant paranoia that swathes of some gigantic essay I'm working on will be mercilessly obliterated before I remember to save. ---------------- This post is a suggestion for Microsoft, and Microsoft responds to...

Problem With New Walkman by citizen 0
I'm trying to set up my girlfriends new Walkman (NWD-B103) and a number of odd things keep happening. Firstly, when I connect it, Vista searches for the driver, but cannot find it (it's supposed to be automatic), so I download it from the Sony homepage. But when I click the Auto Transfer exe. an error message appears saying "Application was not launched from removable drive" I'm confused....

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...

Unmounting a USB external drive issues by civ2ru
Hey there! First off, I run Vista Home Premium. I'm having problems unmounting a USB external hard drive - when I try to use "Safely Remove Hardware" (whether through system tray icon or through "Computer"), the system ALWAYS tells me it's still in use, even though I've shut down all programs using it and I'm not writing to it at the time. When I go to "Device Properties" - "Policies", the...

LCD screen of laptop needs to "warm up"? by civ2ru
In the last couple of months, I've started encountering an error - the laptop LCD screen is blank upon recovery from Sleep Mode or upon boot. After rebooting or closing/reopening the lid (or sometimes just waiting a few minutes does the trick), it starts working and after that works consistently, it's just the initial "warm up" period from off or sleep state. Any ideas on how to fix it or...

Nvidia Cards on Vista x64 (RTM) by CJM
I've just build myself a new high-end PC including a 7900GTO gfx card. I dabbled with XP Pro but had a few graphical problems so I thought I'd install Vista (rtm) instead, whcih I did. At first, everything looked OK, but when I started using more demanding applications (i.e. 3D games) I encountered some artifacting and distortion. Particularly in Battlefield 2, Civililzation IV, and...

Changing boot drive by CJM[_2_]
I've upgraded my machine at some point in the last year, where I added a new 500GB drive and moved my C: partition across to it. The previous 250GB drive was left in for additional storage. Just recently (while upgrading my BIOS) I realised that my system was still booting from the 250GB drive even though Windows was on the other disk. There is a fair possibility in the not too distant...

Battery Meter by CJP89
My battery meter shows the remaining power only as a percentage and not as a specific time (which is my preferred option). I am running Vista on a Toshiba laptop. Is there a way to fix this in Vista or is it part of the laptops design?

Hi, I have a VAIO laptop which has 2 sound devices shown: 1. Speakers / Headphones (SigmaTel HD Audio CODEC) 2. Digital Output Device S/PDIF (SigmaTel HD Audio CODEC) This is pretty simple - when the laptop is undocked I want it to use its spakers (1). When it is docked I want it to use the docking station's S/PDIF (2). Yet at the moment I have to manually go into Control Panel Sound,...

I've upgraded my Dell Precision notebook to Vista with an external monitor and everytime I boot it up, I get to the login screen, put in the password, the Windows desktop displays for a second or so and then the screen goes blank and the monitor comes up with a message that it can't display this mode. The only way to get this back is to unplug the VGA connection to the monitor and then...
