No CD-RW or DVD-ROM. How can I reformat without a CD-ROM? by awhatley
My computers has lost the drivers for the CD-RW and the DVD-ROM. This happened after installing vista. I followed the instructions to delete the upper key filters and the lower key filters (which I never found), but nothing has worked. I would like to use my original restore disc to go back to XP, but the computer can't boot from the CD-RW because it doesn't find the driver. I've got my...

CD-RW and DVD-ROM disappeared in Vista Home Premium by awhatley
Intalled Vista Home Premium in January. For a while I could get the two drives to show up again if I restarted the computer. Now they won't show up at all in Device Manager or Computer. Please help. I hate to think I threw my $159 away buying the OS. My next option is to try to get the system to boot from my original XP Home Restore disc, and I don't even know if it will do that with the way...

Can I access mouse feature from keyboard? by Axel07
I have a 64-bit Vista Home Premium system with the wireless Natural Ergonomic Desktop 7000, consisting of keyboard plus mouse. The mouse's IntelliPoint driver provides a very useful feature called Instant View, which responds by default to a push on the wheel button, and shows a full-screen display of all apps currently running. This is the best task-switcher I've seen, since it gives a...

Memory strangeness by Azin[_2_]
I've just installed another 2 Gig of RAM because Vista ultimate 64bit is quite hungry for memory. In the windows experience index I had a score of 5.6 out of 5.9, with the 2 gig of memory bringing it down to 5.6, the rest of the hardware scoring top at 5.9 I thought that by installing 4 gig in total my memory score would go up to 5.9 too, but can you believe it, it's dropped to 5.5!...

The 3 GB Question… by AzPhotoGuy
I am new to this group, so I apologize in advance if I am asking a redundant question. I looked, but didn’t see the answer anywhere. I understand that a 32 bit operating system can only see 4 gb of RAM. Windows XP had a switch you could turn on in the boot.ini file that allowed you to use 3 gb RAM to a single program. I am a photographer and utilize Adobe PhotoShop (a huge RAM slut) and...

Looking for Video Card Advice by AzPhotoGuy
After upgrading to Vista, I find that was once my state-of-the-art video card (Nvidia FX-2000) won’t run Vista worth a darn. I am a professional phhotographer and live within numerous applications that utilize dual monitor setups. While my existing FX-2000 does OK with single monitor, it is slower than $#*&% with dual monitor use (is actually un-usably slow). I plan on updating to 64 bit...

At the start the download speed was showing at 92K/sec !!!!!! This almost immeadiately dropped by half ... And then continued...
