Added 2nd DVD RW, Vista freezes on Start-up by Mark N.
Hi -- I have an machine with an internal IDE DVD-rewriteable drive which has been working fine with Vista 32 Home Premium for most of 2007. I purchased an internal SATA DVD-rewritable drive to give me a second DVD drive. When installed, the SATA drive is properly recognized in BIOS.

Adding a hardware device by Maurice
Attempting to add an internal DVD ROM drive that is supposed to be plug and play. When booting, error 'no system found' is generated. When the drive is removed the machine boots normally. Apparently, the presence of the drive confuses the system. If the drive is connected after booting there is the option to 'add a hardware device'. Regrettably this option does not offer drives as a...

Adding a PCI wireless card to a desktop computer by Robert McN
I just got a new Dell desktop computer with Windows Vista Home Premium on it. I need to add a PCI wireless card to be able to connect to the internet. The brand I got was NetGear. At the store they told me it was compatible, but every time I tried to add the card, Vista said it was not compliant and so it basically shut down the process of loading the driver. I spoke with the people at...

Adding a second HD by Johncon612
My new pc desktop has a place for a second HD. Can I insert the HD from my old pc without losing the os,Win XP, and the programs on it. My idea is to run one HD with Vista and the second with XP. I seem to recal that adding a loaded HD to a different pc could be a problem. Thanks in advance for any help on this.

Adding an unformatted drive un a USB external enclosure - help! by Johnny C
I have an unformatted hard drive in a USB external enclosure. I know with XP you needed to use PQ Magic or Acronis complete suite so create a partition pointing to the new disk and then format it. I had hoped that Vista would have built this functionality in. SO I plugged the new disk in last night, and nothing. No drive letter. Does anyone know how I can do it with native Vista, or do I...

Adding Memory by LarryB
Ok, after spending the last couple of hours reading the posts from searches on "ram" and "memory", I don't know which I'm afraid of more, changing my memory configuration, or asking the following! :-)) I mean it's been asked to death and I'm still at somewhat of a loss.
