keyboard not working by Afua
I'm using the On-Screen Keyboard right now. I was trying to login to my Maplestory account but when I tried to type nothing worked. I've tried restarting many times but that didn't work. I have Windows Vista 32-bit Home Basic, the LED status on the Num Lock is on and it doesn't seem to turn off even with the On-Screen Keyboard.

USB device appears locked by AG
I suddenly seem to have my USB storage devices locked on my laptop. The thumbdrive is accessible on other machines with XP but my vista laptop says the device is locked. It appears in 'my computer' with a red ring and line through it as does the DVD drive. How can I unlock them? Very frustrating.

How can I reset external monitor settings? by agaethwe
Hello everyone! I find myself in a very frustrating predicament. Yesterday I tried connecting my laptop to my 46" Samsung TV (LN46A650) using a top-end VGA cable, and it worked beautifully out-of-the-box. I was able to get a resolution of 1280 x 768 mirrored, and, more importantly, 1920 x 1080 when using only the external monitor. It looked gorgeous, and I should've left well enough alone....

A company called transcend manufactures a device called "Disk on Module", basically it is a flash memory module that plugs into the ATA/IDE socket of a motherboard. I have one with 4GB. Can I use it as a readyboost device to improve Windows Vista boot time?
