How to be Sure if a Hard Drive Is Blown by dannymichel[_15_]
I got a new HDD the other day so I did some file moving. I cloned my OS from one of my 320GB HDDs to the new one then I deleted all the files from the 320GB and moved about 120GBs from another HDD to the 320GB HDD that used to have the OS on it. Everything seemed to work fine for a bit. I turned my PC off for a few hours and decided to make sure that all the SATA connector's were connected...

eSATA & Vista by [email protected]
Hi! I have an Asus P5B, Vista 32Bit Home Premium. I have something connected to the eSATA port. When the system boots the BIOS sees it fine. Vista however, will not recognize it.......everything is proper in the BIOS, as the BIOS sees it upon boot. The P5B uses the Jmicros controller. That should be up to date. Additionally, this is hooked to an external enclosure, Xtrastore 3.5".....

Possible to detect prohibited graphics hardware acceleration by UlrichK
I read in a lot of places that disabling the graphics hardware acceleration might be forbidden with Windows Vista. I also have a computer/graphics card like this: the slider/option in "Troubleshooting" is missing and it says changing this setting is forbidden by the driver.

Vista Business updates don't like RAID1 by Ashish[_2_]
One machine in my office is used as a file server i.e. all files by all the staff members are stored in that machine. I have installed *licensed Vista Business* in that machine. Yeah, I am brave (or is that called stupid?) :p For data safety, I have *RAID1* in that machine (RAID card and two HDs *mirroring* the data).
