Please help vista won't format HDD by Mikenn
I've recently added a new second slave HDD (Hitachi Deskstar 250GB). It's seen in the BIOS, it's seen in Device Manager, but I can't get Disk Manager to format the new HDD. It goes through the whole process - taking about an hour - then comes up with the message 'Windows was unable to complete the format". I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling, cutting the partition size down to 100GB...

CD/DVD Code 37 by Anisoptera
My CD/DVD drive has disappeared and I'm getting a Code 37. The only advise Google could give me was to uninstall, reboot, and update hardware which did nothing. I'm completely computer illiterate though, so I could be missing something obvious. Any advice? -- Anisoptera Posted via http://www.vistaheads.com

Can I combine two hard disks together? by Steve Hall
I have a Toshiba laptop and it has come with a single 120Gb hard disk. However it is partitioned into a C drive and an E drive split 50:50. I don't really need to have two seperate areas in this way and would like to combine them together to have a single logical drive on the laptop. Can I do this from within Windows Vista that is installed on the laptop? Thanks Steve

Network card sometimes works, sometimes not by pnumminen
There was already one network card integrated on the motherboard, but I installed another network card and its drivers. The problem is that connecting the cable from the ADSL modem to this network card, the Internet connection is not usually established. Instead, Vista complains that it hasn't found any wireless connections. Doesn't it look for wired connections? Occasionally, however, the...

Optiarrc dvd burner not working ? by silverclaws
My Optiarc AD-7530B dvd burner isn't working, it plays music no problem, but I cannot burn any files onto discs. Now, I thought it was my discs, them being cheapish supermarket brand discs, so I have replaced them with Verbatim DVD+R, the lightscribe variety, due to the fact that it said extra sensitivity. So, I come to burn a disc, using windows media player. The burn facility in the media...

CPU Fan problem by machinest
Hey guys, ive just installed a new heatsink and CPU fan to replace the standard one on an Intel Q9400. The CPU fan works fine I can see it spin and adjust the fan speed from a panel that comes with it but for some reason when I boot up my computer it tells me CPU fan error and press F1 to continue. I assume because the fan is still working this is not a problem but should I be worried?

Removing Memory Cards by tommy1de
::I'm confused: When I remove a memory card (xD, Smart Media, etc.,) from my multi-card reader on my computer after transfering photos to my hard drive, do I need to use the \"Safely Remove Hardware\" function? How about when I remove a USB Flash Drive after transfering photos? Or is the \"Safely Remove Hardware\" option just used when removing a USB connected device such as a printer or...

DVD drive problem by WhyHelloThere
I have here an Optiarc DVD AD-7200A drive but it can't seem to run anything other than CDs. Device Manager says there's nothing wrong with it, and updating drivers doesn't help. Is there a way to fix this or will I need to get it replaced? Thanks in advance. --
