Mouse goes nuts - but only when drag/selecting by Bill
Using a Logitech 300 wireless dektop with the "Cordless click" mouse and RC1 Driver is installed and everything works fine including enhanced functions like sideways wheel clicking. But if I try to select text, the mouse seems to go hypersensitive and will go between selecting the last x characters and selecting the last xx lines. Even holding it steady has it bouncing the selected text...

It sure worked for me. --...

graphics card problems by bill
Hi, I currently have a sony vaio laptop with a Nvidia Geforce Go 6200 graphics card. When I upgraded to Vista I began having problems playing games, many told me that I only have 32 mb of dedicated memory to my graphics card. However, initially in XP the video card had 128 mb of dedicated memory. Is this simply a driver issue? If so what driver might I be able to installed that would fix...

Unbootable Hard Drive by Bill
I fried my hard drive last week. Dell has already installed a replacement drive. My question is that the os will not recognize the old drive at all. Like an idiot I forgot to backup my files. Is there a workaround? The disk drive does not even show up in the recovery function.

Unable to make PnP error messages go away by Bill
I had some problems with USB drivers. I repaired the drivers and they all work fine, except when I start up my computer, I sill get the found new hardware message and asking me to install the driver software. I click on the close window "x" but it keeps appearing for 5 or 6 times before it gives up. Everything works fine from then on. But when I restart the computer I keep getting the...

Using Windows Dialer with VoIP Software by Bill Farina
I have a couple of programs that I need to have dial my phone by accessing the Windows Dialer. I'm using Windows Vista as my OS. Both of these programs are VoIP related... MagicJack and Skype. Both of these packages have a "SoftPhone". My problem is that the Windows Dialer only sees the onboard modem. Is there a way to get it to see the softphone software, either by configuration or by some...

USB Mass Storage by Bill George
Vista Ultimate Seagate 500GB USB2 Drive Where you can see the drive: Drive shows-up under disk drives in Device Manager (working). You can see it (sans drive designation (i.e. "D:," etc.)) in the "Safely Remove Hardware" area. You can even see it as an "unallocated" drive in the lower pane of the "Disk Management" utility.

Stripped volume goes "Offline" permanently after a reboot by Bill Griffin
I spend 2 hours on the phone this morning with the Vista team of Microsoft Customer Support and the end result was "talk to Dell or Seagate". So I'm hoping that some of you other MSFT support folks have some info or know of someone that I can contact to get this working right. I've got a three-disk stripped set that is permanently "Offline" and will not come back using "Reactivate Disk" in...

My drive went missing. Since then, I spent 2 weeks banging my head on the problem. Maybe you heard... So, I gave up tinkering with a failed Vista Home Prem x64 install, and started re-installling. My MB was ASUS P5K, my KB was MS Media Pro, mouse was MS Notebook wireless Optical, my video card ASUS Nvidia 8500GT. I finally fixed it, here's how: GIVE UP on the JMicron 363 Vista 64bit...

Missing DVD/CD drives? Here's a clue. Let's beat this by teamwork! by Bill Hill
So you have trouble with your optical drive. The knee-jerk response is "fix the filters dummy" right? (KB929461) If you see no CD/DVD in Device Manager or My Computer, and Windows Update doesn't help, try this: While in REGEDT, same key, change the value of the last 2 items (SilentInstall is one) from 1 to 0. Turns out, it forces the DVD driver operation into the open. Then Control Panel,...

DVD drives are STILL disappearing, Microsoft... by Bill Hill
Fresh new PC, loaded OEM Vista Home Premium from DVD drive, Plextor PX-800A. Install went swimmingly. I ran Windows Update, now my DVD drive is gone from My Computer, does not appear in Device Manager. The System Event Log shows the cdrom driver didn't load; no clue is given about why. Changed the cable, tried cable select, changed the drive for another new one. No luck.

Running Windows Vista Home Premium on a Dell E1505 with builtin SD Host Adapter. If I boot with an SD card installed I can use it fine. However, if I remove it and later insert it or another one I cannot access the SD card. Device Manager shows a yellow triangle with ! on the SD Memory Card under disk drives. Checking properties shows: Windows cannot load the device driver for this...

thanks for not answering question#2 by Bill Kearney
You're a real ass. Ask the questions and wait. It's possible nobody knows the answer. Or, more likely, they know what a flake you are and refuse to help. You don't mention what make/model laptop is being used, therefore it's not possible to give a decent answer. Ask a decent question (without being such an ass) and maybe then you'll get a decent answer. When using external displays...
