Speed differences between 32-bit and 64-bit Vista? by Phillip Pi
Hi. Since I installed both 32-bit and 64-bit Vista Ultimate Edition on my old test machine (ASUS K8V SE Deluxe, Athlon 64 3200+ , 512 MB of RAM, SATA HDD, etc.), I notice the speeds are identical. I can't see and feel any improvements. I did install the ATI Radeon 9600 AIW drivers to help the video speed, but I just don't see the speed differences. Am I expecting too much or missing...

ATI Radeon 7000 VE on Dell PowerEdge 1800 by Robert Robinson
The ATI Radeon 7000 VE on-board graphics adapter is correctly recognized by Windows Server 2003, but not by Vista #5536. The Vista beta 2 software from ATI also fails to recognize the 7000 adapter. Does anyone know of a Vista driver for the 7000 ? Thank you. Robert Robinson

Sata Drivers - New Hope! by tonya
I am running Vista Beta 2 build 5384 using an old MSI motherboard. When I installed Vista, my SATA onboard drivers stopped working (Promise FastTrak 376 type), as did the third IDE port. No amount of reinstalling drivers worked. Then I came across an IDE card from Maxtor called the SATA/150 which was in the box of a new HD I bought for my daughter. Out of curiosity, I installed that on my...

Higher Resolution - Screen Scrolling RC1 by Zilldian
Strange... I'm testing Vista on my laptop (RC1). It's got an ATI Mobility Radeon 9200 in it and it's using the microsoft drivers (version 6.0.5536.16385) By default windows set's my screen resultion to 1024 x 768 @ 60hz. This isn't too bad for a 15 inch LCD but I'd like to set it to 1280 x 1024. When I do, it seems that windows makes the background larger than the LCD screen on the...

External drives by iowabucks[_2_]

I am not too knowledgable in hardrives. Not enough to do...

Nvidia 7900 GT driver issue (96.33) by eaglewolf
I've just installed the 96.33 drivers (96.33_forceware_winvista_x86_international) on Vista RC1 (32 bit, build 5600) and have run into a problem. I have (identical) dual monitors set up, and on the primary, I've found that with the new drivers the screen starts flashing pixels (similar to interference on digital TV). This interference also becomes more prominent when the mouse is hovering...

Is there a way to install Vista on an old PC that has no DVD drives? by Ant[_2_]
Hello. I have an old Dell Dimension 8250 test PC that I would like to install Vista onto. However, it has no DVD drives. I cannot even boot from external USB drives (3.5" disk drive, external HDDs, and DVD burner drive -- CMOS doesn't see them and found out PC doesn't support bootable USB devices). However, I do have enough HDD space (30 GB free on second partition) to copy Vista DVD (or...

Can't find my Card Reader or driver by [email protected]
I have a built-in card reader in my laptop. However, I can only see it in Device Manager if I have a card inserted. I am having trouble as, when I insert a card, the card reader isn't showing up - so I can't check the driver because I can't find it. I changed it recently to the most updated, digitally signed driver. Can someone help?

Hard-drive corruption question by M Skabialka
I have a hard drive that stopped functioning when other hardware was added to the system. I ran diagnostics from the manufacturer website which said nothing was wrong. I have added that drive to three other computers as a primary or slave, or in an external USB case. Each time the computer will not boot past the intial windows flag screen, and BSOD shows errors in ntfs.sys. If I boot to...

Wireless connection stopped working by M Skabialka
A friend with a vista PC was having problems connecting wirelessly to a router. It had been working OK for months then she decided to download the MS Office 2007 trial. Since then her wireless connection stopped working (though I have no idea why this happened at this time). Their other computer was also having a really slow ethernet connection so I had them buy a new cisco wireles router...
