USB device installation always goes to Windows Update by Rui Lopes
Hello, Everytime I plug in a new USB device instead of installing the drivers through the local folders my Vista Business always gets them from Windows Update - which takes its time and poses a problem when my laptop does not have an internet connection. Anyone has a clue on this? Thanks, Rui

USB Enhanced Multimedia Keyboard problem by runner50
I just purchased a new XPS 420 with a USB Enhanced Multimedia Keyboard. When the computer sits for a while and powers down (sleeps), the keyboard lights go off and it does not function. I had to cold start to get the keyboard to work again. Does anyone know if this is the norm? How can I get the keyboard to work without having to "cold start" the system?
