Medion Windows home vista; saved photos/files to D drive (recovery) by accident. Medion support said too complicated to do over phone, ask someone who knows about comps.

4Gb RAM, 32bit Vista by LL
After installing SP1 on Vista, the system properties report that I have 4Gb RAM installed, which is true. However it seems that from the Task Manager, it only can handle up to 3 Gb RAM. So is the other 1Gb wasted? Or is it actually in use for other invisible purposes?

Can't Open Mixer Volume by RCoen
My OS has been very stable (latest patches etc applied, no new software/hardware). When I rightclick on the Sndvol.exe applet in the SysTrack the menu appears. I can choose Playback, Record, etc. but NOT Open Volume Mixer. Nor do I see the slider. When I left click on the Open Volume Mixer it looks like it triggers an Event to the OS, but nothing happens. I have rebooted (warm & cold) and...

Complete Crash without Blue Screen by Don Deacon
I upgraded to Vista about a month ago and since then my computer (used as a PVR) just keeps crashing. It is not even crashing with a blue screen, it just completely shuts off. After one of these crashes, I can't just power the PC back on either, I have to disconnect the power supply, flip the power switch, reconnect the power supply then boot. I'd swear it was just a HW problem myself but...

HP Compaq NX7000 display goes crazy after install by Rich
I installed Vista RC1 on a HP Compaq NX7000 laptop with a 1.8GHz Intel Centrino Processor, 512MB of RAM, and 64MB Radeon 9200 video. The chipset is Intel 852/855. When it got to the part during setup where it asks to create an icon, user name, and password the screen suddenly went crazy like it was out of sync. I did manage to get through the rest of setup even though the display had...

RC1: No Sound from X-fi or after driver install from Creative Labs by JB
Just for the record. I can't believe that by this point CL or MS cannot autodetect an X-FI in Vista 64 and install it properly. What they are saying about being a Beta 3 might be true. RT

I have a Realtek AC97 soundcard. I have the official XP drivers from Sony which install when ran under XP SP2 compatibility mode.

MISSING SATA HARD DRIVE by Vista_is_the_new_ME
I have a new pc w/ vista, 2 sata hard drives. Everything was fine, then a week later the slave drive disappeared. The BIOS recognizes the drive, but Vista doesn't. I've seen enough threads on here w/ no resolution. System restore is not an answer. Microsoft - Fix the problem.

Installing / Registering Canon Multipass F80 Vista Driver by Roger
I have saved the driver update for vista "F80_Vista32.exe" to my desktop. After accepting the licencing agreement, the installation runs. Before it finishes the following error pops up: "An error occurred while files were being copied". How do I get past this to finish the installation? Canon tells me it is a system issue not a driver issue. -- Roger

HCL by JustABloke
What is the point of a HCL that contains incorrect information? I purchased a network card based upon the information contained within the HCL, it simply doesn't work. I've not been able to find any kind of network card wired or wireless that works. Microsoft and all the various hardware vendors simply shrug their shoulders and I am left with the best part of £1000 worth of computer that is...
