Missing space on HD; adding new HD by Pekka Numminen
"My Computer" says that I have two hard drive partitions: System with a total size of 92.6 GB and Data with a total size of 44.3 GB. But the hard drive is of 160 GB. Where is the 23.1 GB? Is there a reason other than that the computer manufacturer left the space empty? Not related: After adding a new hard drive, should Vista automatically recognize a fairly new Western Digital HD after booting?...

Trouble printing some files to a network printer... by suzena70
Has anyone else had this experience? I have some files, (some pdf, some dwg, and there are a couple other programs) that I am unable to print to a network printer.

But under windows XP,after "Set...

How to disable ALPS touchpad on new PC, old methods don't work. by mevande
Hello, I have an new Acer Laptop with Vista Home premium. It has an ALPS touchpad. I want to disable the touchpad (and enable it w/ USB mouse on rare occasions where I might use the touchpad). I went to the control panel and mouse properties and there is no way to disable it there. I also went to the device driver area and the disable device was greyed out. How do I disable this touchpad?

I have a 6 in 1 card reader that has the 969mb memory problem with recognizing 2mb sd cards--mine is a Patriot brand card. I can boot into Windows 2000. It recognizes the card perfectly. Seems to be a Vista bug for sure.
