Thinkpad T42 Vista Business only 50Hz refresh by RichE
I have installed Vista Business on a Thinkpad T42. The display driver for the ATI Radeon is reporting 50Hz max refresh rate and that is the max I can set under Vista. It really is flickering. Any idea how to get it 50? Thanks,

This is the second gamepad I've purchased and neither of them works. The Logitech I...

Unable to create dial-up connections or enter phone properties by Richard Stocks[_3_]
I've just done a clean install of Vista Business and SP1 (32 bit) onto a Lenovo ThinkPad X61. All went well, except that I can't create a dial-up connection for either the internal modem or a PCMCIA 3G card. Both devices are detected successfully, and diagnostics in device manager show them as working correctly. In what I think is related, going into Control Panel - Hardware and Sound -...
