Interesting Microsoft's wireless mouse project: line of sight or what? by Hillbilly
I've never used wireless mice or keyboards before and need to learn how reliable they are when used in "proximity" to a small form factor PC that will be mounted "behind" a HDTV mounted to a wall. I'm planning to put the keyboard and mouse in a box mounted to the wall just below the HDTV hung on the wall inches above. When the lid of the box is opened it will swing down like a tray holding...

Accidentally disabled my speakers by Aberfox
In the sound pop up from the control panel I was trying to change the default speaker, but accidentally disabled it. Now the speaker has disappered from the playback devices tab and I cannot get any sound out of my speakers. Q. How do I enable my speakers again? PS. Its a laptop, so I think it's the internal speakers I've disabled

HP Scanjet 5400c problems by Dad
Has anyone been able to get their HP Scanjet 5400c to work? I can get the thing to scan but an image onto the monitor but then when you outline what you want to scan in the final scan it will not scan just that image and it will not save it. Any help would be appreciated. Do you think it is the scanner (driver) or the software that I am using? (paperport)?

display color of characters changes by MikeP
I have an HP w2338h monitor and Radeon HD 4650 video card set for 1920 X 1080. I have updated drivers for both. When using Windows Help and selecting a link to another section the link should change to magenta. It does, but some of the characters display partially in magenta and the original color.

Windows Vista Screen goes blank by [email protected]
Has anyone found a solution to this problem yet? I read somewhere that if you go to the Power Options, advanced options, processor power management, and change the value of the minimum processor state to 100%." that it may fix the problem. Can anyone confirm this? Thank You, Randy

How To Stop "Ker-plunk ker-plunk" USB sound from Device Manager? by Mike Hartsough
Every 10 seconds I get a "ker-plunk ker-plunk" sound that I've been able to track down to a USB hub. I've tried power-cycling the USB hub, and restarted Windows, and I still get the sound. The Device Manager window does some sort of rescan/refresh at the same time as the sounds, so I'm thinking it's some sort of DM issue. This actually started on an old XP PC a few weeks ago, but this...
