"No audio output device is installed" upon wake-up... by Justin
I recently purchased an Acer model E-380 computer with Vista installed on it. I am using the basic two front speaker setup made by Acer. Randomly upon waking up from a sleep condition, I will get the red X on the speaker icon saying "No audio output device is installed". In the device manager the RealTek device is gone. Then when I restart or put back to sleep and turn on, the driver will be...

"No bootable device" error by Hamlet10
Hello. I apologize if I have posted this in the incorrect forum. Just a few hours ago my laptop spontaneously crashed, or so it would seem, and any attempt to restart it leads to a pitch black screen with the text "No bootable device -- insert boot disk and press any key". When I start the laptop, it at first leads to a screen with the word Compaq in big, bold letters and a plethora of options...

"Parameter is incorrect" installing driver for any USB storage dev by Paul B
Hi, I'm getting a "parameter is incorrect" error when Vista Business RTM is installing ANY USB storage device, whether flash or HDD based. I've tried several of each and none work. It appears to find the device driver software and goes to install it and that's when the error occurs. Vista Business RTM was an upgrade to Windows XP Pro SP2, rather than a clean install.

"Run as..." Error for HP All-in-One by Shattered Haze
I just bought a new Acer desktop that came with the Windows Vista OS. I have had a few problems installing my old programs on this system, but, for the most part, I have managed to work my way around these issues with the help of updates, drivers, and patches. However, I am having a problem with installing my HP Deskjet F335 All-in-One. When I first tried to install the software, it came...

"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?

My NAS has a 25 user limit and Lacie support thinks it is related to that Vista doesn't disconnect after each access. How can I solve this...
