I know this is kind of off topic, but has anyone tried the install either Linux or Windows on a 4 gb USB Flash drive and then boot their computer from it? If so, what would be the procedure and how would be of a benefit? William

Second Monitor troubles with Vista Home Premium by William
I have recently purchased a new HP Pavilion Notebook with Vista Home Premium on it. I have a second Monitor, color, made by Trinitron in 1998. It worked fine as a second monitor on my old laptop running XP. When I connected it to my new laptop, it works fine while it is booting up, showing everything fine. Shortly after it reaches the point where my desktop has appeared, the picture starts...

can't establish Bluetooth connection to my mobile device by Willi
Hi! I'm using Vista Home Premium with an internal Broadcom Bluetooth device. When I'm trying to send a file to my mobile phone, the phone can be found, I am asked to set a key for the transmission (on Windows), but then nothing happens, and I get the error message "The process can't be executed because the user is not authenticated" (Maybe it's not really that message in English, I...

In de device manager it shows as a CD-Rom and reports errors with the driver but when I try to update the driver it reports I already have the latest version. I had to go back to factory reset to get it working...

Inspiron 8600 - No screen shutoff on lid close by Will Eriov
Hi all - I have a Dell Inspiron 8600 which I've been using with XP for years but just upgraded to Vista Business Edition last week. The OS has been running smoothly so far, but I'm having one specific problem: when I close the lid on the notebook, the screen no longer shuts off. I don't want the computer to go to sleep--I just want it to shut off the LCD. Any ideas what might be going...

Format and Chkdsk of USB Flash Disks by Will
How is one supposed to check for errors on, and reformat, a USB flash disk? I assume these things all have some specialized geometry, and a standard command line CHKDSK or format is going to mess them up? -- Will

How Do I Determine The Serial Port In Use? by Will
Vista appears to have done away with the Ports applet in Control Panel. When using a USB to serial adapter, how do I determine the actual serial port number? Every time I plug it in I get a different serial port number, so I need to be able to rediscover the serial port taken on an ongoing basis. -- Will

wireless broadband by will
Can anyone tell me if it's possible and economical to have wireless broadband without having a fixed land line connected because i'm sick of paying the line rental on a phone that i just about never use. I sometimes think we pay through the nose for communication that's not really up to speed in Australia.

vob by will
Does anyone know what a "failed to read from VOB file" means when backing up a bought dvd and how to get around it? I am using DVD43 with Nero, but it does the same thing with shrink, just takes longer.

Unknown device by Will
Device Manager shows something on my system doesnt have drivers for it. Now I would assume its something to do with the Asus Motherboard ( A8n32-sli deluxe ). The location is PCI standard ISA bridge. Waste of time asking Asus as they only seem to be worried about products in the last month or so. Now should I be worried ? Will it slow my system down ? Any idea what it is ?

Audio, Video and 64 bit migration. by Will
1) On Vista Home Premium, with Nvidia GeForce 6150 LE, Dungeon Siege II does not show red dot enemies in the small map Viewer! It is rather slower than on MCE2005 also. Would be happy to learn how to correct this if there is a way. Tried the Beta Driver as well, no change. 2) MCE2005 Realtek Audio worked great for Quad setting with Yamaha home stereo in blue line in plug. Realtek High Def...

Canon i865 Printer by Will
Ok, Vista installs its drivers and it works but I cant get the CD Label Print to work. Actually it wouldn't let the auto run work so I installed Label Print by exploring the CD and finding the exe program. Now the problem is that this program comes up with a message that it needs a compatible printer to work........it doesn't recognise the Vista drivers I would assume. Now this is the only...

Has Anyone Tried Installed to 64GB SSD SATA Drives? by Will
I noticed that SanDisk released a solid state hard drive replacement that they are claiming sustains 60MB+ / second throughputs. Has anyone tried installing Vista to one of these? http://www.sandisk.com/OEM/ProductCatalog(1321)-SanDisk_SSD_SATA_5000_25.aspx Do these kinds of SSD drives suffer from the same limitations that flash memory drives do in that too much write activity wears them...
