Problems running any game on Vista Business x64 by Varant
Hello there, Any game I run on Vista Business x64 gives me some problems. I can play games for anywhere between 4 minutes and 4 hours. But after a certain amount of time, my computer completly locks up (not even a BSOD). The game just freezes and my sound goes berzerk (it's sounds like a weird repeating sound kind of virus like). I have run all virus scans, disk defrag and updated all...

Vista and USB HUBs? by LR
Hi I have had a strange issue with USB HUB's for some time now, both without and with SP1. I'm using Vista Ultimate on a DELL XPS 1210. The problem is that devices connected to the USB HUB seems to stop working after some time. It is seen with my: PDA (sync doesn not work), Mouse (sometimes hangs for a second or 2), Keyboard (reppeeeeeeeats letters quite often), USB key (not recognized)....

RTHDVCPL.exe driver signing problem, Vista SP1 by Joe Auerbach
After applying Vista SP1 on my Acer notebook, I started getting a popup saying that this driver didn't have a valid digital signature. This is support for the internal Realtek audio system (mic & speakers). Any thoughts on either getting the correct files or else bypassing driver validation ? Thanx, Joe Auerbach

Acer OrbiCam behaving erratically by Joe Auerbach
I have an Aspire 5610 with the built-in Logitek Orbicam. As of about a week ago, it sometimes refuses to start the camera. There is a quick popup saying 'reconnecting" and then it goes away. I've tried reinstalling the drivers and the app, Acer's support is useless (I'm waiting on a reply from Logitec), just thought I'd throw it out here for any feedback. I'm current with patches, tho this...

Wireless service by drm
We have a new Dell with Vista Home Premium. I am now on my 3rd attempt to get internet access (tried AT&t express card, Verizon usb, and now Verizon express card). The error message that I get when we install the modem is "unable to create a new connection - error 711." Can't get anywhere with Dell, Verizon, or AT&T (each blames the other). There are articles on error 711 with XP, and we...

My Documents in explorer by Clues
I like to see my documents in explorer, at the top under desktop. I've seen some 'tweaks' that show how to make a shortcut to Documents on the desktop, but this doesn't add Documents to the Explorer. I could change the location of Documents to the desktop, but I'd rather have the old hard link in XP, where it acts as the actual folder. There is probably an app to make hard links, but that...

Vista and Blu-ray by Peter[_19_]
Hi. Sorry if this has been raised before, but I only just got a new Notebook with Vista Home Premium on board, so after years of familiarity with XP, I'm now struggling to come to grips with the slightly different feel of the new OS. The question I have concerns playing a Blu-ray disc on the Notebook. It uses an enhanced version of WinDVD to play HD discs, and there is no problem watching...

CDs and DVDs not recognized when inserted. by Double9s
This is a Vista problem. When I open my CD drive or my DVD drive and insert a new disc, like a game, Windows doesn't recognize that I've done so. The autorun doesn't run. In my computer, it still shows the title of the last disc that was in there. And when I doubleclick the drive I get an error. The only way to run anything is to "explore" the disc and open the program. It's only been this...

Autoplay-Broken for My Camera by y0himba
Hi! I am very impressed with the forums here so I thought I would risk public ridicule by asking about a problem I can't seem to fix. I have a Kodak Easyshare C643 Camera. It shows up in Autoplay as "C643 Zoom Digital Camera" and I have it set to "Ask Every Time". I have tried setting it to others in the drop down list, but no matter what I do, it will not autoplay. If I remove the SD card...

I am thinking about getting a bluetooth mouse for my Gateway MX8738 (which has bluetooth built in.) I don't see any bluetooth icons or options in Windows Vista Home Premium. How do I tell if Bluetooth is enabled on my notebook? the keyboard has a bluetooth icon and I read to push the Fn button along with F6(bluetooth icon on the button) to enable or disable it, but since there's no icon on Vista...
