Xbox Live Vision Camera by DRCL
Well, when I had XP I never actually got the cam to work completely, but it did show up on Messenger as a working camera, but it froze the program when I tried to use it.. I tried installing it on Vista and have looked for solutions, but it won't work with anything. I have used guides to make it work, but I don't come up with the same stuff. When I go to the device manager it has something about...

How to turn off Speedstep? by akita
Is there any way in Vista (32 bit) to turn off Intel’s Speedstep throttling? Having spend a couple of hours going through Vista’s various and numerous options (power options and so on) as well as spending some time researching this on the net, I simply cannot find a way to turn speedstep off via the GUI. My BIOS gives me two options: “Off” which sure enough turns speedstep off, but...

It still works on my XP computer at work (but Creative doesn't have software for XP anymore; I can only interact with my Zen as a hard drive, basically) I have upgraded all of the software offered by Creative for Vista and followed many, many recommendations for cleaning,...

Vista "forgets" USB Device Locations by phillfri
When I plug in the external USB drive I use for backup, Vista recognizes it, can read and write to it, etc. But within a few minutes Vista "forgets" the location of the USB drive. I note that, like most people, I have multiple USB devices plugged in. The error message I get is: ============================================= Could not find this item. This is no longer located in %3...

Safely removing external HDD that system says is in use by another program by popalong
When I try to remove Drive F at the Computer window, or from the taskbar, it says "can't remove, in use by another program". This became an issue after I ran Windows Backup for the first time. Earlier backup was the Acer version. Acer's version backs up C partition and records on D. Windows backed up C and D and recorded on external drive F. Here is the contents of Shared Folders Share...

Vista 64 Bit - Cannot Boot With 3 Hard Disks by SomeoneX
Hello, I have just installed Vista Ultimate 64 Bit (on my 500 GB Seagate hard disk, the main hard disk).

When viewing drive info 3rd party software is showing the used space and also 10mb of unallocated space. Anyone know what this unallocated space is? That space allows a Basic disk to be converted to a Dynamic disk.

DVD drive uninstalled?? by Steve[_54_]
Greetings: I'm running windows Vista on an HP Pavilion. Recently, I went to use my DVD ROM and discovered the icon was missing from "My computer"...... This happened before with XP, and with XP I removed the appropriate Upper and Lower filters in the registry, restarted, and all was well. I tried this with vista and the upper and lower filters were not present.

Shared graphics memory in vista by Mark[_30_]
I have vista home premium 32bit on my compaq presario desktop with 4gb ram. I installed a ati graphics card today with its own 1gb which should be more than enough ram for the kind of things I do since I am not really a serious gamer and am not into 1st person shooter type games. The problem is vista insists on using 1gb ram as shared graphics ram so is there anyway to stop this sharing of...

Terminology question by M Skabialka
I know there is a term for this though. The hard drive failed, the manufacturer is sending a new one. What is the term that means everything has been pre-installed and it just needs to be placed into the machine and it's like buying it new from the store? There's a short simple word for this - it's driving me nuts trying to think of it....! Pre-loaded isn't it... "smlunatick"...
