Trying to figure something out by RickyBobby
I have messed about and confused my own self. I have two desktop computers at home that I assembled myself. A few weeks ago both of them went belly up. It was the power supply on one of them which took some other parts with it and the mainboard on the other. So of course I bought a bunch of new parts such as CPU, power supply, couple of motherboards, and a video card. After using the old...

usb port hub wakes up Vista by dannyj
I have a "no-name" usb port hub that I got at a web seminar. It has four ports to expand on my two native ports. I have a Dell studio xps 16 that works great. My computer (Vista home premium x64) goes to sleep and wakes up normally - except when I have the usb port hub plugged in. It then goes to sleep and wakes up immediately.. even with the lid closed. The easy solution is to remove the usb...

TV tuner help Hauppauge WinTV PCI II (26xxx) by Nighthawkcb650[_2_]
I took the card from my parent 4 year old HP and installed it on my computer. Windows Vista installed the correct drivers and says ready to use. I'm not using it for cable, but I am using it for hooking video game systems like the Wii and X Box. Windows Media Center tries to use it for cable but it doesn't set up correctly because it can't detect anything. Is there a way to use the tuner card for...

mouse jumps when typing by carrie sallee[_2_]
Mine turned out to be a RAM problem. I swapped out the memory stick in my Dell laptop and all is peachy. Had nothing to do with my touch- pad or drivers. RAM is so cheap it only cost 8.99 with rebate.

How do I keep this message from displaying everytime I plug in a USB flash drive? "Do you want to scan and fix *name of thumb drive*" My 2 options are "Scan and Fix" or "Continue without scanning." I have tried the scan and fix but it shows up the nexttime I plug in the drive.

After several weeks searching for a new driver and any other solution to this problem, I finally found that the solution is quite easy. :) Just go to the Display Settings, and click the Advanced Settings... button, which should display a dialog with a List All Modes... button. The resolution that fits for my Samsung LCD-TV (720p) is actually 1176 x 664. It's so nice to see the task bar,...
