Problem With Mouse by Bosconian
I have just done a new install of Vista Home Premium on a laptop that did previously have Vista on it. It worked fine before but this time my USB mouse is not working properly. When I move it across the screen, it gets "stuck" from time to time before carrying on. That's the best way I can describe it. It is all the same hardware as before. Any ideas?

Headset Microphone not working correctly by Andres
I currently own Windows Vista Home Premium and an "AC-100" headset microphone. My problem is that when I play games online like Gears of War I can speak into the microphone and it shows that sound is going through, but I can't hear what other people say when they speak.

Vista Home Basic memory upgrade to 4gb - Blue screen by gsanche5
Hi all, I've been browsing the forum watching several posts on Windows Vista and 4Gb memory issues, but couldn't find a solution. I have a Sony Vaio NR210FH. I upgraded memory to 4 Gb (2 x 2Gb). BIOS recognizes ok, but Vista Home Basic doesn't start. If I only use one 2Gb, it works ok. I'll be glad to reach the 3.5 Gb that other's complain about ;)... Anyone can help on this? -- gsanche5
