HDD disappears during formatting by pnumminen
I installed a new, second HDD. I initialized it and began formatting it on Disk Management. When I just came back after being away from the computer for a few minutes, I noticed that the whole HDD, not to mention its formatting process, had completely disappeared from Disk Management! The HDD is still physically connected, it wasn't taken away by a fairy. What caused this and how to prevent it...

Printer Driver for Dell A10 962 All-in-one by martinezll
I know that Dell will eventually have a driver for my printer (April they say). In the interim any temporary solutions like a generic printer driver that can be used. This is a sorry state of affairs since I have never faced this kind of problem with past versions of Windows. Thanks in advance

Dual Monitors by dreamingtree27
I use the dual monitor feature on my laptop with a projector for teaching and with my TV at home. Sometimes the monitors will get reversed. I plug in the cords as usual and then my laptop is monitor 2 and the external device is monitor 1. Does anybody know what causes this and how to fix it. I fixed it once, but it was purely by accident. Any help is appreciated. -- dreamingtree27

ATI AIW TV by Clive in Kent
Hi guys, When I upgraded to Vista from XP I was very disappointed that it wouldn't recognize the TV tuner on my ATI X800 All-in-Wonder graphics card. Even more ****ed when I saw that ATI had no intention of issuing any Vista drivers to support the TV capability on the card. However I accepted it and have learnt to live without the TV tuner. Had a pleasant surprise this week when I installed...

System won't go into Sleep or Hibernate by Colleen Lill
Hi, I'm running Vista 32 bit on my home edition laptop. Lately, when I select sleep or hibernate when I'm leaving the laptop, it won't go into either. It just goes back to the Vista Windows log in/password screen. It will shut down if I tell it to, it just won't go into sleep or hibernate.
