Which joystick should I get that will work in Vista Home Premium? by Autumnale
I was thinking about getting a joystick. Or maybe the XBox 360 wireless controller. But I heard that the Xbox 360 doesn't really work with most games. I was thinking specifically of Battlefield 2. Anyone know of a joystick that actually has Vista support? Maybe even Vista 64 support?

Installing Vista on a new partition by Auutumn
I just used Acronis Disk Director 10 to create a new 40GB partition. I used the OS Loader to Boot from CD and when Vista was installing, it asked me to select a partition to use. I selected the newly created partition but clicking on Next did nothing. There was a msg at the bottom of the screen that basically said that the device driver for the partition (drive) might not be...

DVD Player Stopped Working by Avandersluis
Pass this on to others, it may help. It seems that a driver update has added either an upper or lower filter for the DVD player registry in the system registry. I found that my DVD player didn't show up at all in the explorer, and when I went to burn a DVD/CD it gave me a message that the media wasn't found. Here is the fix I found after waisting my time trying to remedy the

DVDRW wont work in windows by avantg2
I have recently installed windows vista home premium on my newly built computer. My DVD rom shows up in the bios and on windows when you go to my computer. However when you place a CD or DVD in and the autorun kicks in the screen goes nuts with diagnally running lines. The computer also locks up and has to be restarted. I'm wondering if anyone else has heard of this?

Building or Buying a Brand New Windows Vista Compatible PC? by Avarice
My computer is over 4 years old now and I am ready to turn it into a secondary computer in my home. I currently have Windows Vista Ultimate installed on it, but because the hardware is somewhat old, I'm not getting a very good experience with it. With that said, I'm ready to "go all out" with the designing of my new PC. I am looking for different Windows Vista PC design guides, but was...

IDE Controller Not being accessed by Avimage
Hi there. I have just got ahold of Vista and a whole new comp. Anyways, everything works fine aside for one minor problem. On my mainboard I only have 1 IDE channel, and unfortunately I need 2 channels, so I got ahold of a pci controller. However Vista does not seem to recognize the HD on the controller, even though my BIOS does. Is there a way to work around this so it recognizes the HD?

CD-RW and DVD-ROM not recognized in My Computer by awhatley
I've been battling this for over a month now. I've tried removing the upper and lower filters from the registry. I've tried removing iTunes (like one person suggested). I can't even reformat and reinstall XP because I can't get the CD-ROM drive to work enough to read the XP System Restore discs. If I could I would dump Vista as quick as I could. No DVD-Rom means I can reinstall Vista Home...
