Is this flash drive toast? by Ronin[_4_]
Friend has a flash drive that was working OK, but when he plugged it in yesterday, it didn't show in Explorer. When he plugs it in it makes the appropriate sounds, but it doesn't appear in Explorer or Disk management. We uninstalled all of the pertinent entries in Device Manager and tried it again, and it all reinstalled perfectly, gave notice that it was in stalled, etc., but in addition to...

Redirect Sound Card Output by Joao Antunes
Hi, I've purchased a guitar recording device that acts like a Soundcard by itself, being the sound only heard if I connect the line out of the equipement to speakers or headphones. I was wondering if there is a way of redirecting the output of a sound card (this recording device) to another soundcard (my pc's soundcard) so the sound of the first soudcard is heard through the pc speakers...

ATI Radeon HD 4830 card to Samsung LN-S4695D LCD HDTV by DCMackie
When trying to run a Windows Photo Gallery slide show, the screen goes black and the TV reports "no signal". Some web blogs suggest it can be solved by changing the "ICC Profile". Does anyone know where I could get such ? I had no luck on the Samsung website --

HP Laserjet 1012 and Vista 64 bit (driver work-around worked for me) by lovesaves
I have the hp Laserjet 1012 and, after wasting much time with different failed attempts, I finally got it to work with my Dell Studio Vista Home Premium 64bit desktop! First, I custom installed the Laserjet 1015 XP driver from the hp site (fonts and driver only, not the toolkit). I picked USB local port and the driver installed but the printer wouldn't work. Next I right clicked on the Laserjet...

Speaker Echo by Dan Kap
I have a brand new Gateway GT5694 desktop computer, using Windows Home Premium (x64). I have a set of Altec Lansing speakers which I've plugged into it, which worked very well with my previous XP computer. There's an echo in the audio output that's so bad that speech is barely intelligible. There's also mild distortion in music. Headsets work fine when I switch to those; no echo at all....

Vista 64, X-Fi: Microphone Sound Distorted by Szaijan
I use Vista 64, an SB X-Fi Extreme Music sound card, and just bought a Turtle Beach Ear Force surround sound headset w/microphone. The head set and Mic work perfectly in Win Xp, but in Vista 64 all sound recoding is accompanied by distortion that sounds like fan interference or some other regular electronic interference or choppiness caused by bandwidth limitations. My Plantronics USB...

Vista sound playback devices missing speaker by Victag
I just bought a new PC and there is no sound coming out. If I go to the sound icon in Control Panel, there is only an SPDIF playback device showing, and no speaker option. I am not using the SPDIF port on the soundcard, but have my speakers connected to the other plugs (analog I think they are?) I have tried updating the driver with no luck. Any suggestions?

Trouble with headphones and wireless card by TheRusty
Hi all, Recently I purchased a new system for myself (hurrah for tax returns) and so far, it's a pretty nice system. It runs Vista, obviously, and I've encountered a pair of problems. One major, one minor. First, the major problem is that it doesn't seem to want to install my wireless card. I'm using a ZoNet 802.11g Wireless LAN PCI adapter, and I swear, I've tried everything. The...

USB mouse pointer freeze by Stephen
To whom this may concern, I just bought a computer running Windows Vista Home Premium (6.0.6000). I use a USB mouse made by Razer, their "Copperhead" mouse ( http://www.razerzone.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=11 ). When I first plugged in the computer, I plugged in the PS mouse that shipped with it. After I had the machine set up initially, I installed the Copperhead. ...
