"Strategic commander" drivers for vista..source code? by mjboyers
so, it seems there is no port of the "Microsoft Sidewinder Strategic commander" controller software for vista (At least I can't find an updated driver that works). I would be more than willing to donate free time to do a free port of the software to vista, if I could get the source code. Or..does anyone know of an updated vista driver for this AWESOME device?

multiple mice "profiles" by jbiz
I have a laptop with a touchpad that has certain settings for speed adjusted fairly highly so the pointer moves fast. I also have a Bluetooth mouse that when I use it, it uses those settings and the pointer moves too fast to be useable. I have to go into the control panel and change the pointer speed to adjust for the Bluetooth mouse. Shouldn't there be some setting or maybe even a...

Hardware Driver Annoyance by Cowofjustice
Here's my problem... I was given an Adesso 12000 Tablet Pen last year, and had it installed in a Dell running Windows XP, and it worked fine... That computer blew out, and now i have an HP running Vista. I recently got around to installing said Tablet onto the computer, following the same steps as before.

Hey, hope someone can help me.... I have installed vista on my laptop, re-installed the utilities for the motherboard, but when I try and use the usb ports they do not pick up any of my portable devices, e.g: my usb modem, I plug it in and the light flashes(proving the power is coming through) yet the autoplay doesn't start or the new hardware found icon does not pop up.

Idiots. by --Janelle
This might sound pretty stupid, but I let some knob use my computer for a bit and he turned off my touch pad on my laptop. I can't find the touch pad icon anywhere in the control panel or in the toolbars menu. I really just want my touchpad back. Please, it must be simple. --Janelle

Vista File backup failing with 0x80004005 by Gary G. Little
This one has Microsoft scratching various portions of thier anatomy. Vista file backup to an external drive has been working on my laptop for over a year. Flawlessly. Suddenly I have not been able to do a backup for almost a month. Complete PC Backup still works, but file back up fails with 0x80004005. That status means 'Unspecified error". I've tried it to the external HDD, formatted that...

Vista & Benq V2400W LCD by Simj
Hi, I just bought *Benq V2400W* display and connected it to my pc using DVI. It's native screen resolution is _1920_x_1200_ px but Vista will allow me to set only _1600_x_1200_ resolution - anything bigger results in black jumping screen. I have the latest ATI graphic card drivers (Sapphire Radeon 2900 Pro 1GB). What should I do? -- Simj
