Vista RC1 Disables DVD-ROM/CD-RW Combo by Jonathan Dewar
Greetings, I've recently installed the Vista RC1 and everything works peachy, except my DVD-ROM/CD-RW Combo drive. Vista will detect any disc after initial boot, but as soon as I attempt to place a second disc in the drive, Vista stalls the read process and the drive crashes. It no longer appears in the device manager and Vista no longer detects the device at all. If I boot into XP Home,...

Adaptec Scsi 2930cu - need driver for RC1 by Bruce Arnold
I have RC1 booted from an EIDE drive but I also have drives and devices that run from an Adaptec Aha-2930cu Scsi card. Ven_9004, Dev_3860, Subsys_38699004, Rev_03. All of the Beta's worked until RC1. (With build 5472 I had to manually copy the aic78xx.* files into Windows\Inf folder.) I have not been successful with build 5600, RC1. The latest driver from Adaptec is for Win2k and this doesn't...

Intel 845G Graphics Driver for Vista? by Sushovan
Is there a Windows Vista compatible graphics driver for Intel 845G chipsets? On pre-beta1 versions of Vista, I could use the Windows 2000 driver by manually installing the driver from the Device Manager... In RC1, you can't do that (You get a device install error every time you restart the computer, and the display flickers at startup)... so I am stuck with a Standard PnP VGA Driver... cant...

I am trying to install Soyo Hardware Monitor 1.2. It reports temp and fan speed data. The installation appears to finish but evidently it fails to register a needed dll file. The error message I receive is "Run time error'48': file not found: itevio.dll". I searched the internet and found that people using another mfg's version of this same software were having the same problem under...

Battery on Dell Inspiron 6000 by MFTSASser
Ever since I installed windows vista (the system was purchased with XP), this thing has been sucking battery power like lemonade on a Texas summer day. I am using power saver mode and I've been trying to use conservative settings. What's going on? Is anybody else noticing decreased battery life, all other things being equal?

A required CD/DVD drive device is missing by juls
Hi there, I tried to install Vista RC1 on a second HD partition but, with no luck. It comes up with: "A required CD/DVD drive device is missing" error and it wont go any further. I updated all the drivers but still no luck. With the same DVD I installed it on my VPC without any errors at all, but it's very slow when run from the VCP. Can someone give some ideas or suggestions on how to solve...

RC1 missing SATA Controller by Joshua
Beta 2 didn't miss it, Win XP surely doesn't miss it, so why the heck is RC1 missing it??? RC1 fails to install the Intel 82801FR SATA AHCI Controller which came with my Dell 8400 PC. Instead I get the Standard AHCI 1.0 Serial ATA Controller...and this one keeps loosing my hard drives. At random, my 400GB drive will just vanish. When I try to install the Intel drivers, RC1 doesn't like it;...

Modem Not Working or Seen by Vista by Jason Saffer
Hi all, I've installed Vista on my system with a dual boot option (XP and Vista). When in XP, I can access the Net with my computer's modem, no problem. But when I boot into Vista, Vista doesn't seem to know that there's a modem present. I can't dial out at all while in Vista, I get a message that no modem is detected. Any ideas on how to fix this -- hopefully, without having to replace my...

Generic Voulume Driver ?? by Lincoln 6 Echo
Hi guys, I got vista installed on my LG LS-70 Express notebook, and I must admin, RC-1 RULEZ! Pretty much everything was detected except: MSI Bluetooth Device, my High Definition Audio Driver, and Mass Storage Device. First two were easy to fix with directing Vista to my XP Pro installation directory, where it found the needed info.

Intel Graphics Driver Widescreen... by jon lloyd
I can't seem to get the right resolution on Widescreen. I have a Gateway 7330GZ laptop and the Intel 82852/82855 Graphics Controller, but I can't adjust the resolution for widescreen. Thus, all my web pages are looking a bit stretched, and my desktop icons are huge. Just seems like everything is stretched enough to barely notice. Searched for a Vista driver from Intel, but no dice. Thanks...

VISTA EYE CANDY and No Support for INTEL MotherBoards by Jon Acord
VISTA RC1 32 Bit / 64 Bit both provide no support for my PCI Video slots on my IntelĀ® Server Board SE7525RP2. I did a clean install on my 64 bit PC (both 32 bit and 64) using my NVIDIA PNY 7600 GT PCI Express card 2 Gigabytes of DD2 RAM. Keep in mind folks that this setup works fine with XP Professional 32 bit and 64 bit, which I am forced to run as we speak due to VISTA's inability to...
