Restoring flexible drive letter assignment by BenjaminJames
Had trouble with USB devices getting letters conflicting with network shares. Assigned drive letters using Computer Management/ Drive Management. How now can I restore flexible assignment so they are not permanently mapped to a particular letter? Thanks! ps. "removing" the drive letter just took it off totally; then to get one back, it asked for another fixed assignment. Refresh/rescan...

i installed an update called IDT High Definition Audio CODEC and now it says my speakers are not connected. I have tried to do a system restore twice to no avail. I have also went to the gateway company support and they were no help either.

My laptop just returned from repair & the motherboard has been replaced; when trying to boot Vista SP1 from the hard disk (that I kept home while the PC was being serviced), I keep getting a BSOD (module igdkmd32.sys, i.e. the intel GPU). The system starts fine, and crashes a few seconds after I click my account icon & enter my password. I can boot in safe mode: I already tried removing the...

Physical memory by benson.gs
I just recently added a 2GB 1066MHz DDR3 PC8500 memory to my laptop which now has a total physical memory of 4GB. Checked if the Vista recognized the added RAM and the System info shows 4GB. Likewise, the Memory diagnostic tool reported "No errors found" in the 2 x 2GB memory modules. However, the task manager reports total physical memory is only 2516 MB and cache is reported at 1173 MB. Can...

Physical memory by benson.gs
Recently upgraded RAM from 2GB to 4GB. Vista memory diagnostic tool reports no errors found. System recognized memory at 4GB but task manager indicates total physical memory at just over 2500MB. Does this mean that Vista only addresses a little over 2500MB of memory only? Is the 1500MB excess wasted? -- benson.gs

Notebook carry case by Benzmum
I recently bought a notebook with vista. Can anyone tell me how much i need to spend in order to get a carry case that will protect it from bumps, etc? One source told me I needed a briefcase with special foam padding that costs about $100. Ouch! Buying the notebook put a huge dent in my bank account. Do I have to go that high? Of course, the notebook cost $800 so I need to make sure it...

Can Google's Chrome OS attack Windows domination of the desktop? by Ben[_12_]
The folks at Google seems to think that the desktop is ripe for the taking and plan to release Chrome OS. I wrote a piece on Chrome OS, with an accompanying video, at: http://windows7reports.com/2010/11/16/google-chrome-os-arises-to-challenge-windows-7/ Realistically, what do you think Chrome's chances are vs. MS Windows 7 or Vista? Is the idea of a browser-based OS appealing to you? Can all...
