Printer drivers in add hardware? by BIGDADDY51
Will the drivers for printers listed in add hardware, work for the printers listed? For example, If I buy a Canon MP160 printer thats in that list, shouldn't it work without a problem? I really want a 3 in one that will work with Vista, without spending a thousand dollars.

Simple RAM and optical drive Q's by bigdave234
Hey, recently bought a HP pavillion elite m9351, advertised with 4gb of ram and the vista home premium 64bit OS. The base only contains 3x 1gb sticks, the system bios is recognising 3gb of ram... am i missing something? is there onboard ram in this model or have i been sent a dud? it has 752mb of dedicated graphics and 2.5gb allocated by the OS, which would possibly rule out the missing ram being...

upgrading graphic card by BigJim
I am going to upgrade my graphics card from and Nvidia 6600gt 128meg to a 7600gt 256 meg card. Is this going to cause activation problems? Also under XP I would normally remove the drivers, shutdown the system, remove old card and install the new one and reboot. Then reinstall the new drivers does this sound like the right plan. TIA

No sound on Vista by BigMonsterGirl
New computer - Compaq Presario with factory installed Vista Home Basic. I'm using the speakers from my old HP Pavilion - Polk Audio. I can get sound through them, it's just very, very faint. Is this a driver issue? I've looked in my device manager and the installed driver is a Realtek HD driver. I've been to the audio manager and troubleshot it every which way - no solution there. Any help...

I have replaced an HP Pavilion notebook running XP Pro with a new HP Pavilion notebook running Vista Ultimate. I had been using an external Acer LCD monitor with the old notebook. With the new notebook and Vista, the external monitor seems to disable both the screen saver and the power plan settings. The display simply stays on indefinitely.

Moving app window from one display to the other by Bill
I just installed vista ultimate and have a dual monitor setup. My main monitor is a 22"widescreen next to a 17"standard, both LCD. If I'm viewing a maximized window on my main screen(22") and try to drag it over to the other one, I can't until I minimize it. This is ridiculous. XP would allow this just fine, even resizing the window to fit the smaller screen perfectly maximized. Please...
