ATI Radeon X850XT Platinum by BatteryOperated
After installation of RC2, my X850XT is identified, but disabled due to driver errors (from windows/microsoft supplied drivers). I've tried udating the drivers to the BETA drivers from ATI for RC1, but that only leads to a error message that pops up on the lower right that there are "incompatible display adapters have been disabled" that never goes away. This is odd because these drivers...

Sidewinder Central for MSFF2 Joystick by Baza
Is there any way of getting the 'recorder' in this software to run under Vista? Under XP disabling DEP for joy.cpl would let it run but Vista wont allow this.

DVD-Rom disappering after new software download? by BB
My DVD-Rom worked fine when I got my computer (new), however a month later when I installed a new photo program, Adobe Photoshop Elements 6.0, the DVD-Rom disappeared. It does not show up on the hardware list and when you put a CD (I've tried several CD's), it will not run them at all. No error messages or anything, just as if it's not there. When I restored to a previous state/save point,...

I just upgraded to SP2 and now my network response thru my Linksys BEFSX41 router is terrible. Less than dial up modem speed for download but upload is unaffected. Linksys had a new firmware update for this in August 09 and I applied that. I ran a test and it appeared the download speed was back to normal but after a few hours it is now back to 24k download speed. If I connect directly to my...

SATA Hard Drive does NOT show up in Device Manager by bbsrnitrkl
I am trying bring-up a new SATA Hard Drive through PCIe to SATA AHCI Host Card. We find that Vista recognized the AHCI Controller and it shows up in the Device Manager. It successfully allocates the memory and IRQ, and says that the Device is working properly. But the HDD is not recognized. When we look at the PCIe analyser, we see that the OS is continuously polling the AHCI Interrupt...

Sony Vaio Hot Key by bcain2005
I have the same issue, and have noticed that when installing the hotkey library and the actual handler program that runs on boot from windows XP, the hotkeys still don't work and the application complains that the battery is too low and to hibernate before losing power regardless of actual power usage. I think that we'll just have to wait until Sony gets its act together and writes a driver...

Sony Vaio Hardware Keys by bcain2005
I have a sony Vaio VGN-S360 laptop. Sony uses a propriatary startup program to handle the screen brightness and sound hotkeys. The Windows XP driver doesn't work and complians about the battery being low, so its obvious that it doesn't read the information correctly in Vista. Since all sony laptops use this system, I was hoping that someone else had this problem and found a way to resolve...
