Next time I put the disc in I got a loud whirring and the computer showed Explorer had stopped responding. That all I get - totaly unable to access the disc. Similar discs of the same type no probs?

Need access to Driver acceleration by RedGuy
Under Display Settings Advanced Setting (tab) Troubleshoot it should allow you to adjust your settings. My drivers for my graphics card and mother board are up to date, but I still cant get access. It says "Your current display driver does not allow changes to be made to hardware acceleration settings." Please someone tell me how to adjust this so I can change my acceleration settings.

Speaker Help by skulldragon3200
Hello everybody, I have a laptop with Vista, and I want to use some of my speakers that I have for my computer. It is a set of 3 speakers and they are plug in with only 1 jack. The only problem that I am having is that the jack is a mono jack. I used to use these speakers with XP and in XP there was a way to let you chose whether the sound output was broadcast in mono or stereo. Is there a way...

Automatically Duplicate 2 Internal Drives by Don Cohen[_2_]
Hi, I am about to purchase a new Dell Vista 64-bit system. I originally intended to have a pair of 500gb to 640gb hard drives in a Raid 1 configuration, so I would have automatic duplication of both OS and data files. If one drive failed, I could just swap in the other, and be good to go. The particular system I'm looking at doesn't offer a Raid 1 configuration, only Raid 0. The system...

Hello, Because the Microsoft Trackball Explorer is no longer available, I've bought a Kensington Expert Trackball.

chkdsk hangs on stage 5 @ 10% by InTheRed
I run chkdsk a few times a week, usually overnight or when I'm going to be out of the house for quite a while. I figure it really does no harm and is a good form of system maintenance that can be done while the computer is out of use. The other day I woke up and the system had a blank screen (monitor snoozed). When I moved the mouse, the monitor didn't wake up. I had to reset the PC and skip...

Slow DVD writer access by Werner
Hi All I have been using Vista for about a year now and have managed to sort out most of the kinks in my system, but one eludes me. I have a Sony/Optiarc DVD writer (SATA). It takes absolute ages to access the content on a DVD. For example I can wait for over two minutes for a DVD movie to be accessible (from the time I close the drive). Any ideas why?
