Problem with playback of burned DVD using Media Center by Campheel
I burned a dvd-r from home video using Studio 11. The DVD will play on a DVD Player but will not play from my computer. Help from Studio 11 indicates that Vista has a DVD decoder on it so the dvd should play using Windows media Center. Any Suggestions on what could be done to enable computer playback. BTW, I know the drive works since I play other DVD's on it.

Blank CD-r by vwbrewer
My Dell Dimension E510 will not recognize a blank CD-R disc. Works fine with every other disc. Have tried several blank discs with same result: D:/ is not accessible, incorrect function. I reloaded the driver, but nothing has changed. From what I've read on this forum, should I try some more blank discs, or try something else?

Disappearing External Hard Drive by Marshall_D
Hi All, I'm just about at wits end here. I've got an external HDD (Cavalry 2 X 500 GB = 1TB) that I usually plug in via e-SATA. It is currently setup in a SAFE33 configuration. It was working great on my old XP machine, and when I changed that machine to Vista Business (same everything, just plugged in a different boot disk and unplugged the old one) it continued to work great. Then I did...

I would like to use a UPS with automated shutdown software but also take advantage of energy savings by enabling the sleep mode (the S3 state on my Intel works very well under Vista). Has anyone done this sucessfully?

Mic Mute/Unmute Button by John Ciccone
In XP, I'd click on the speaker icon in the system tray and have a mixer. There I could mute/unmute the microphone input. In Vista it seems like I have to go through a myriad of dialog boxes: Ctrl Panel sound speakers Level. Am I misisng something? Is there a shorter path? If not, can I assign a shortcut key? Thank you

intel Dual-Core CPU not recognized AGAIN! by Chuck Harding
This is getting totally rediculeous. TWICE now when I've had to do a repair-install of a microsoft operating system it ends up that the intel P4 D830 is NOT recognized as a dual-core CPU! The last time was with an XP Pro installation and this time with VISTA! I looked everywhere on every support forum I could find and none of the suggested fixes worked, they seemed to all be about problems...

Loss of sound by Jahlfrezi
The speaker icon has a red cross and says no Audio Output Device Installed. In Control Panel Sound it says I have no Playback Device installed and there is no option to do so! Via Windows Help I find that I have a sound card installed and it says it is working properly. I think this all happened because I was trying to connect external speakers and couldn't get them to work. I may have...

While dealing with tech support from a peripherals company regarding a mouse problem, they had me check for certain system files, and we determined that several appeared to missing, including input.inf, msmouse.inf, and hidusd.sys.

Voice recording - XP versusu VISTA by Gilfair
There used to be a "super-peachy-keen" tool in XP to use with a microphone to record your voice, speed it up or slow it down, echo it, reverse it, edit it with another voice file, etc. The VISTA voice record seems to only allow a single voice record. WHERE ARE THE OTHER OPTIONS!!!???

768 MB RAM and Home Basic by Kris Dee
Hello, Many websites show the minimum system requirements for Vista Home Basic: they say 512 MB RAM will do. I have this "old" PC (P4 1.7 GHz, 3 x 256 MB RAM, Geforce6200 64-bit), a "Siemens Scenic T", and I am wondering if "Home Basic" will run smootly on this machine.

Sound in Vista by Charlotte
I have sound from either the built-in speaker, or external speakers, but not from my Skype headphones. I can not locate any driver for a microphone and when I go into the audio settings my version of Vista (home basic) doesn't show the slider controls for phone line, line in, aux & microphone. From reading other questions and posts I looked at the Direct X thing but this appears to be for...

Why is this? It's all...
