Finalize a CD? by Steve
I cannot find a button or menu item that finalizes a CD after burning files. All the CDs I burn still seem to be open (can add more files) but I want a CD that's locked, finished and frozen. "Close session" does not finalize (for me, anyway). Tried various formatting and "Mastered CD" options, but they don't do the job. I'm using Vista Home Premium. Please advise.

I don't want to be unethical and rude on the...

So I downloaded the latest Intel Chipset software and extracted its contents. While digging through the folders, I found the INF file that correspond to my computer.

So, it appears that although...

Va11a X10 usb video driver. Interesting answer from the vendor. by jd
Still looking for the va11a driver from x10. I thought this was an interesting response from them. I didn't know that Windows vista was not yet 'trustworthy'.

Remember, a Microsoft operating system is not really...

I have a 6 in 1 card reader that has the 969mb memory problem with recognizing 2mb sd cards--mine is a Patriot brand card. I can boot into Windows 2000. It recognizes the card perfectly. Seems to be a Vista bug for sure.

How to disable ALPS touchpad on new PC, old methods don't work. by mevande
Hello, I have an new Acer Laptop with Vista Home premium. It has an ALPS touchpad. I want to disable the touchpad (and enable it w/ USB mouse on rare occasions where I might use the touchpad). I went to the control panel and mouse properties and there is no way to disable it there. I also went to the device driver area and the disable device was greyed out. How do I disable this touchpad?
