eSATA external HDD ok under XP, no longer activated under Vista x64 by lanstrad
I have seen a thread about that, but since it's getting old, I wanted to post a new one to ensure it will be seen... Sorry for redundency if you have read it elsewhere. I have a dual-boot PC (Win XP Pro 32 bit and VISTA x64). The Nextar3 plugged through eSATA (ASUS P5B) was seen until a few days ago when I updated BIOS (for another problem). Since then, only XP sees the external drive (in a...

CPU Fans and heatsinks by Red Dog
I have heard that the stock fan and heatsink that come with Intel cpu's is not a very good setup. Can someone recommend a good setup for a Core2Quad Q6600 to go on a Asus P5E3 Deluxe motherboard? I would like something close to the original setup, but of better quality.

Attn: Farhan Ahmed,Vista usb port driver doesn't power off device when safely removed by Rob Redbeard[_2_]
On Apr 28, 11:35 pm, "Farhan Ahmed " wrote: For the LED not going off case, there was an intentional behavioral change from XP to Vista, where the USB bus driver does not turn off the hub port to which the device is attached when the device is "soft removed" i.e. it is still plugged in physically. Is there an article on microsoft.com that describes this...

HP LightScribe writer not working in Vista Home Premium by Kevin Potts
I have an HP a1440n Media Center PC, just upgraded to Vista Home Premium, the LightScribe writer that came with the computer can no longer burn disks, on cd's or dvd's. In device manager it's listed as HL-DT-ST DVDRRW GSA-H21L ATA Device. I have been checking the HP software website for updated drivers but nothing so far. Is this my only option, wait for an updated driver, or is there...

cd/dvd rom by BlackHawk
In the last few days my disc drive only recognizes DVD discs. It will not play or do anything with CD discs. I have un-istalled and re-installed. Restarted the PC at a restore point. Still the same. I am running Vista Home premium with a NEC CD/DVD+-RW ND-3350A ATA Device.

WinModems and 64-bit Vi$ta by Man-wai Chang ToDie (33.6k)
Every time my Agere modem goes on or off hook, the whole 64-bit Vi$ta chokes and coughs. No choking under 32-bit XP. Is this normal? Or is it a bad driver? But then I am using the driver provided by and downloaded from M$.... Don't tell me that M$ is backstabbing soft modems... :)

Ive installed an ATI theater 650 on 2 Vista machines ( 1 with ASUS M2A-VM mainboard and the other with MSI K8mm3 mainboard) Load current drivers from ATI and system shows good install, However, when I try during MCE setup to find the ATSC signal during automatic setup the system ignors the ATSC antenna.

Serious Hardware or OS Problem? by Lee Beck
I rescued my computer from a house fire. I was pleased that after cleaning it up it recognized my drives. I had to move and get a new DSL carrier, so I got a new gateway from them and also replaced my mouse and keyboard. The first problem that I encountered was that I could not get the setup.exe file to activate for the MSFT hardware CD, but I did get the mouse/keyboard working (w/o the...

Gateway C-142XL for 64 bit by hyla
I am interested in a Gateway C-142XL convertible tablet PC. I like the specs on this computer. I also like the idea of being able to use tablet mode, without going to a a 12" screen. It comes with Vista 32 bit. I am going to be running models, so I want to take advantage of the 64 bit system. My understanding is I can get Vista 64 bit compile for a nominal fee. However, I am concerned...

gaming controller by The Shadow[_2_]
I have a Saitek P990 controller which includes profile editor software that is necessary to its use. I cannot enter my profile editor. Every time I try to, the computer says that I need to input an applicable device (like my controller that is already in a USB port). I believe that the software recognizes my controller when I install the software, but not after installation. If it is of any...

Vista Basic 32-bit to Vista Ultimate 64-bit by Fallen
I currently have the Vista Bastic 32bit operating system. However I've recently been informed that ultimate 64bit would better fit my needs. So I scampered over to TigerDirect.com where I found upon clicking on the Windows Vista Ulitmate 64 bit software that it says that you cannot upgrade 32bit to 64bit, or 64 bit to 32bit. Is this true? Or is this true only for XP 32bit trying to go to...
