camera settings on Vista by Bumbrlik[_2_]
Hello all, I have a Canon PowerShot SD750 camera. This is what used to happen when I connected it to my computer - a window would pop up, it would ask me if where I want to download the picture, how they should be named, if the pictures should be deleted from my camera etc. It also gave me an option to set defaults to some of these settings and there was a checkbox "Don't ask me again" (or...

How can I reset external monitor settings? by agaethwe
Hello everyone! I find myself in a very frustrating predicament. Yesterday I tried connecting my laptop to my 46" Samsung TV (LN46A650) using a top-end VGA cable, and it worked beautifully out-of-the-box. I was able to get a resolution of 1280 x 768 mirrored, and, more importantly, 1920 x 1080 when using only the external monitor. It looked gorgeous, and I should've left well enough alone....

Replace Hard Disk by Rebecca
Hi. I am using Vista Home Premium, so I do not have the CompletePC Backup feature, sadly. I just finished reinstalling VISTA and a ton of programs, only to realize stupidly that I am running out of hard disk space because of all the downloading I am doing. It would be pure hell to have to reinstall everything again. I want to replace my hard drive with one with double the capacity. Can I...

Printer Proble with HP Officejet 7310xi All-in-one by [email protected]
I started getting ink smears when printing. They are horizontal lines that vary in length. I've tried aligning, cleaning, and even changing cartridges but to no avail. I did notice a crumpled piece of foam under where the black cartridge parks and some ink under that. I removed the foam and it printed two pages perfectly then back to smearing.

Mouse Jumps to Corners after Recent Vista update by Max
My mouse randomly jumps to one of the 4 screen corners. It began after this week's Vista update. System Restore didn't fix it. I changed the "jump to" setting in the control panel and it didn't fix it. There doesn't seem to be any information in the knowledge base. Does anyone have any suggestions?
