Caps Lock Indicator by bara
I've just gotten a new computer with home premume vista 64 but i'm still using my old 'microsoft' wireless keyboard and mouse. Unlike the XP profesional, there is no 'caps lock' indication any where. Any suggestions? Thank you, Bara -- bara

Paying for bluetooth driver software 14.95 Eur? by baracooda
The Bluesoleil Driver does seem to work with Vista, but is this the only way to get bluetooth to work with Vista? is there a cheaper alternative? 14.95 Eur doesn't sound reasonable. Does it?

Dual Monitors, 1 has no display by barbar
I have been using dual monitors to extend my display area. Last night it appears that there was an automatic update to my PC. Not a problem, except now my second display is not showing up. I know it's on because the power button is blinking. How do I get the second monitor to show the display again? This happened before after an update but I can't remember how we fixed it. I'm using...

DMA Mode Problem With IDE Device in Vista by Barbara
Our device stopped working in dma mode in vista. This is our own device, and we only did SCSI pass through commands to it. Under vista, these scsi pass through commands only happen in PIO modes, not dma modes. In the device manager the box is checked to use dma, and the device manager properly reports the device as being in UDMA mode 2. However all transfers happen in PIO mode which is...

Future of Supported Devices by Barbara
I have two printers and a scanner not on the list of supported devices for Vista. I have heard that Microsoft is adding supported devices as time passes. Is that true? Is there a way to find out when device support is added other than checking the list periodically? Thanks -- Barbara

Safely removed icon disappearred by Barbara Williams
The safely remove hardware icon has disappearred from the taskbar. I finally had to disconnect my ipod anyway. Now I find my ipod is corrupted and all podcasts, music, etc. are lumped together under 1 category. For instance, although I have podcasts on the player, I have to search for them manually on the player as the podcast section has nothing in it. Has anyone else dealt with this...

Some of the websites state that...

SATA drive listings under "Computer" by Barrie
I have an Intel motherboard that has six SATA cable sockets and I am using one for a drive and another for a connection to a port on the front panel of the computer. When the drives are listed under Computer or Manage Drives, the four unused sockets are shown as empty "removable media" drives. I do not want to see these as they just confuse that page. How do I hide them?

Vista does not see all of RAM by Barrie
I am using Home Premium and recently increased my desktop memory from 2GB to 4GB. The BIOS sees each of four motherboard slots with 1.024GB and reports a total of 4096GB. System information reports seeing only 3.325GB. Can someone please tell me what is going on? Is Vista not using all the available memory?

Well Vista says for all of them "USB Device Not Recognized". Then I got 1 to work. I unplugged it and then when I plugged it back, "USB Device Not Recognized. All of these work on many...
