Printer all of sudden not recognized by Aaron
When i first got my new computer with windows Vista I plugged my printer in a Bam! we are printing. Now , 2 months later when I go to print nothing happens and when I check "find printer" it says " the active directory domain services are currently unavailable." I have tried reinstalling, rebooting, setting up a new usb port to no avail. What the heck has happened?

Tearing my hair out over BIOS...of all things by Aaron @ Paradoxsys
Hi, I have Windows Vista Ultimate x64 edition installed on my home machine - I've just upgraded the processor from an AMD Atholon 64 3200+ to an AMD Atholon x2 64 4400+ for Vista. My motherboard isn't recognizing the new processor (showing up as AMD Hammer Family Processor - model unknown), which is due to an outdated BIOS version. I'm trying to flash the BIOS and having significant...

Vista does not recognise USB mouse by Aaron B[_2_]
I was using Vista Ultimate 32bit with this Dell system with PS/2 mouse. I bought a new USB mouse to replace the broken mouse. But when power up Vista, it does not recognize this new USB mouse. I check this USB mouse at my laptop, and this mouse works fine. How can I make Vista to switch from PS/2 to USB mouse? Thank you.

Graphics Card Suggestions? by Aaron Lindsay

I do not really want to spend too much on a graphics card ($200 maximum) but need help deciding. I do not have a PCIe slot, so I need to find a card that supports PCI. Are there any good ones that would support the Windows Aero theme,...

In an effort to get my phone paired up with Vista Home Premium, I installed the Widcomm v5 drivers which worked OK. However, I decided to wait until a Vista-compatible driver is released so I uninstalled the drivers and now my automatic driver installation no longer works. It skips searching C:\Windows\INF and goes directly to Windows Update. Is there a way to fix this? It is very annoying when I...

I have to go to Device Manager and remove the driver and then search for new hardware to reinstall the SoundMax drive. Any ideas on how to lock the...
