Roll back? by Futuramaboy
I currently own a audio input interface called MobilePre USB. I have recently purchased a computer with Windows Vista which (I think) is using service pack one (not sure how to check this!). The audio interface has been causing my computer to crash (blue screen) and having contacted the company they have told me that the hardware is not supported by Vista service pack one. They did say...

media center audio/video playback "glitches" by Russ[_4_]
I am an OEM system developer working on a configuration for a new Windows Video Media Center based HTPC. I have experimented with a few motherboards for the new HTPC product that I'm working on, but felt that the Intel DP35DP was well suited for the system I'm building, due to it's design/features.

Using external hard drives formatted in MAC OS by chrysoloras
I recently bought a MAC book, and have an external hard drive that I formatted on the MAC using the MAC extended format.

I plugged in my hard drive on the USB ports, but my PC does not even show the drive anywhere on the system. Any suggestions? I am using Vista 64 bit. and my...

General questions by LP[_2_]
1. What is SLI? 2. What is RAID? Is mine enabled, if not how do I enable them? Do I need them? The boxes say I have them. (this is why I keep the boxes, LOL)

"Merge" 2 partitions, C:(data) & D:(OS) Vista Business 32bit by Lucious
Greeetings all, Heres my situation: Upon installation of my vista business 32bit about a year ago, I partitioned my 250GB HD into 2 partitions ~235 and ~15 for data and OS respectively, which is how it remains today, however I'm runnin' out of space on the 15GB and regretting my decision to partition in the first place. I've fumbled around on the forums and haven't really found a clear cut...

Will windows allocate more than 4 gig RAM? by rena03sb
According to an IT guy at work (who happens to love MAC...) anymore than 4 gig RAM using a Windows based OS is a waste. I have a new computer en-route with Vista 64 Home Premium Edition. It comes with 4 gig of ram and is upgradable to 8 gig (I assume due to limited slots on the mobo). Is there any truth to what he said? Basically he said that my Vista 64 will 'see' 8 gigs of RAM but will only...

System crash on full backup to WD external drive by Ed
Hi, all. I posed this question to Western Digital's support people, but they were of absolutely no assistance, essentially blowing me off and blaming Microsoft. I have a WD MyBook 1TB external hard drive. It's a replacement for a LaCie drive that I broke accidentally. Because I broke my LaCie, which held all my backups, I need to do a full system backup so I have one on file. (I'm running...

It's like if it were searching for new devices and makes the computer freezes for a few seconds continously. I'm running Vista Home Premium 32 Bits version on a laptop hp pavilion dv9000. Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

USB Problems - DRIVER wont INSTALL by Giovanni[_2_]
Some of my USB devices now will not install. I have read various messages here and the solution seems to be to go into regedit ( not something I would really like to do) and change HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Device Path to '%SystemRoot%\System32' When I go into REGEDIT I do not have DevicePath I have Device Installer. Anyway what would I change? Help
