Transferring data & programs from old hard drive by Ross820
The motherboasrd on my old computer went out, and the computer wouldn't even turn on. I salvaged the old hard drive, though. How do I get some of the old files/programs out of that old drive? I tried hooking it up through my external backup drive, but nothing comes up. Do I have to change/remove the jumpers in the old drive to make it a "slave"? Any other suggestions? Thanks

Lifecam VX-3000 Vista Home Premium Problem by Rossley
The latest drivers for Vista work fine if I plug in the camera after booting, but every time I boot with the camera plugged in, Vista says it can't find the drivers, and it won't work until I unplug and plug it back in. Any ideas?

Mouse & Keyboard don't work after Update by Rotten Deadite
I installed a USB-related update through Live Update last night and when I rebooted my computer my mouse & keyboard no longer work. They light up, and the keyboard works in BIOS so I assume this is a driver issue. I've reseated them, switched USB ports, even tried them in the ps2 ports but nothing seems to work. I've even tried a different mouse & keyboard but I get the same problem.

DVD Info needed from an Expert by Roy Ballew
I just added a new HD to my system, (3rd HD). Before putting the new HD in I removed the DVD drive letter J:\ so it would be last after all the HD drive letters. After getting everything set up and giving my DVD it's proper Drive letter of L:\, here's the problem. I do a lot of movie burning and like the Windows DVD Maker program for the Menu choices it offers.

I get the message - No ATI graphics driver installed - Please help by Roy Mayo
Hi, When I had Vista with a single core AMD CPU, there was no problem with the ATI drivers and my X800 graphics card. After I upgraded to X2 dual core CPU, I get the message that no graphics driver is installed. Everything else works fine. I did install the Radeon drivers according to the instructions from ATI. Please advise how I can solve this difficulty. Many thanks Roy Mayo. --

Just got a new PC with Vista and my screensaver does not work. A previous thread indicated that it could be caused by a wireless mouse. I have a MS Intellipoint 4.1. Is this the cause of the problem?
