Ram & performance by JB[_5_]
Hello Vista 32 bit I've just upgraded my laptop to 4 Gb RAM. Haven't seen any difference. Can anyone point me in the right direction how to optimize my system for the 4 gb ram. I saw somewhere that the pagefile should be in a separate partition, another mentioned windows managed setting. All very confusing. Thanks Jen

Canoscan FB620p installs but won't run by gorgol
I have a Canoscan FB620P that runs fine under XP. I downloaded and installed the drivers and software, set the compatability mode to XP SP2, but when I try to run I get "Profile not found. Error code 0x24050010" What is going on? Tried the compatability in admin mode, same error.

cd/dvd drive by pmh532
My computer is less than a year old. I have an Optiarc DVD+-RW AD-7200S ATA Device on my Vista computer. My problem is that it recognizes some CDs/DVDs and not others. I keep getting the message to insert a CD into the drive. I am trying to run a CD that was burned with pictures on it. The person who burned it also uses Vista, and can see the pics individually, or in slide form. Any...

CD/DVD drive by pmh532
I just received a replacement drive from Dell, installed it, and it reads all the CDs I have (especially one I had problems with). However, I am now trying to burn some new CDs, and I see they need to be formatted before use. (I had an XP system before, and don't ever recall formatting them.) I have several Memorex CD-RW I tried to format, and the computer says "windows cannot complete the...

700Mb CD formats as 576Mb by Paddy
I have some 700Mb rewritable CDs. For some reason, Vista (Home Premium) formats these as 576Mb. Where is the other 124Mb? They are currently formatted as Live File System. Does that make a difference? How would I change the format to Mastered? Thanks in advance.

Avast - has anyone else experienced this? by Richard Urban
FOOD FOR THOUGHT I was talking to Western Digital today and they gave me an RMA to return a "defective" 1 gig hard drive that sounded like a garbage truck for the past 4-5 days. I could hear the drive in the next room while watching television. I'm glad to say I don't have to return the drive. Today I downloaded the beta of Microsoft Security Essentials for testing purposes. I uninstalled...
