How to create multiple hardware profiles in Vista? by DMIOM
Laptop (Sony Vaio TZ11, Vista Business) works OK using the auto-created "docked" and "un-docked" profiles However, this laptop is now used, as well as moibile, in two different offices, each of which has their own docking stations - each with their own different networks, printers, external displays etc. In XP we would have just created a (copy) hardware profile and then allowed the user...

CF card not accessible by [email protected]
I have a 6-in-1 internal USB card reader in my PC running Vista Home Premium SP1. It recognized the CF card the first time (maybe the first few times) I put a CF card in the reader. Now however it does not. All the drives show up on the Computer screen but when I double click on the G drive, it says I need to insert a drive. From the Control Panel, I go to the Computer Manager/Disk Management...

SoundMax Integrated Digital Audio by Aaronb
After loading Vista Ultimate on my machine I keep losing my sound. The sound works when the SoundMax Integrated Digital Audio driver is installed, but "automagically" that driver gets removed and the RealTek 97 AUdio driver gets installed. I have to go to Device Manager and remove the driver and then search for new hardware to reinstall the SoundMax drive. Any ideas on how to lock the...

Please help with external drive issue by Rob[_22_]
I have a Maxtor DiamondMax 21 320gb PATA (ultra ATA) hard drive installed in an external case that I used on my previous OS - XP Professional. The case I had purchased from NewEgg and it worked really well via a USB connection. No software was necessary, I simply plugged it in a USB slot and it was displayed as a Mass Storage Device. I have tried the following with no luck: 1. Loading...

HD added with SATA doesn't show up by Foreverkul[_2_]
So I finished adding a Western Digital 160GB 10,000RPM HD, made sure all the plugs were correct, and using SATA. However, when I started up my computer it doesn't show up in Explorer, so I look at device manager and it is listed there. I also went to the BIOS where it is also listed. So I know the computer knows its there, but why can't I access it? I've researched similar problems but could not...

HP Photosmart 8250 printer give away by Dennis Davey
The HP 8250 printer ( borderline warranty!!) jammed up and left me with new original HP 363 color cartridges - three in the printer and three still in sealed packs. If anyone living near Exeter is interested in a real bargain, just get in touch. I don't want to dump the whole lot, but it has got to go somewhere. Perky

USB Mic suddenly not working by Xojie

DVD not working after failed SP1 install by Andy G[_2_]
6 days ago I had a Compaq notebook (6720s) that was working OK, although USB functionality was pretty random. Then I tried to install Vista SP1 as offered by Windows Update. The install failed. 2 different System Restore points also failed.... Terrific. Now the system no longer shows DVD drive in My Computer or Computer Management, but it shows in Device Manager as not working, no drivers.

Docking Issues with Peripherals by Allen Rosenthal
I have been docking my notebook for over a year with NO problems. Recently, however, when I dock my notebook (hibernated or fully powered), the 'device failed to connect' sound plays, and my mouse and keyboard fail to come online. Oddly, the monitor activates as usual. The only solution has been to reboot the laptop while it is plugged into the dock. What could be causing this? (Side note: I...
