4Gb RAM, 32bit Vista by LL
After installing SP1 on Vista, the system properties report that I have 4Gb RAM installed, which is true. However it seems that from the Task Manager, it only can handle up to 3 Gb RAM. So is the other 1Gb wasted? Or is it actually in use for other invisible purposes?

No Sound - Possible Corrupt DirectX???? I don't know! by SMeddows
I've lost the sound on my laptop and I don't know how to get it back. I have an HP Compaq nx9430 with 2 Gigs of RAM. Everything was going great after a clean install of Vista when all of the sudden (I don't know what happened or updated) the sound stopped working.

Vista Ultimate loses dvd drives when trying to use WMP11 to burn a by Archivist
When I try to burn a audio cd-rw with Vista Ultimate on my NEC-3500AG dvd writer, Vista loses both of my dvd drives and I have to reboot to get them back. Will WMP only work with a cd-r and not cd-rw? Or is this a bug in Vista?

Disappearing DVDRW Drive by Gaelen
Hi, this is my first post here so bare with me if I'm not all that up to speed. Anywho, I have a HP Pavillion dv9000 laptop and recently I've found that my DVDRW Drive tends to disappear (both from the computer and device manager) after a random amount of time.
