2 desktop computers in 2 locations. 1 USB bootable drive. Possib by lairdwh
I want to have 2 desktop computers, one in the city, one in the country, and carry one bootable USB drive between them. (And I would backup to a cloned, serial SATA drive, internal). I heard that from a HP support person that microsoft is planning to create this possibility in the future. What do you know about this. (And what searchable phrases might reveal their plans).

2 GB dual channel vs 3 GB single channel by FrozenEclipse
I bought a 1 GB stick of RAM for my comp today, but I made the rookie mistake of not realizing that having an odd number of sticks of RAM in my comp (3x1GB) would make me lose the dual channel. So my question is, do I lose performance by not having the dual channel? Would I actually gain some by having additional memory? Or is it really a crapshoot with no real gain or loss of performance either...

2 gb sd card by Greg
2 GB sd cards do not work with vista Home premium. Windows requires that the card be formatted, and then it formats the card to 969 MB instead of 2 GB. My suggestion to microsoft: Fix it! ---------------- This post is a suggestion for Microsoft, and Microsoft responds to the suggestions with the most votes. To vote for this suggestion, click the "I

2 GB sd card problem by Greg
I have noticed several others with this same problem, but there doesnt seem to be a well defined solution that I have found yet. Here is my problem: I have a 2GB sd card (San Disk). The card works fine in my Palm TX as well as on Windows XP machines and shows up as having 2GB of storage. However, the card does not show up when I try to use it with my Laptop which runs Vista Home Premium. ...

2 Gig SD card issue resolved? by Mark C
Greetings. I'm using Vista Ultimate 64 bit, SP1, and my multi SD card reader can't read 2 gig cards. It can read other cards with less than 2 gig. With the 2 gig card it just sits and tries to read it, doing nothing at all, no offer to format or even open a window to view. I've seen many others that have this issue. Has this been fixed to anyone's knowledge? Thanks in advance. -Mark

2 hard drives not recognized in RC1 5600 by J6
I'm using a dual-boot XP and RC1 5600 system. When I'm on XP all the physical drives ARE recognized. When I'm on RC1 vista 2 physical drives ARE NOT recognized. My thinking is that is because there are no vista drivers for the IDE controller for those two drives. According to device manager, the controller for those two unrecoginized drives is a "via bus master IDE controller -0571". I have...

2 Mice? by Al
I have an HP wireless optical mouse on my Vista Home Premium system, and when I look in Device Manager, I have two (apparently identical). I can delete one, but it always seems to reappear. I am having the universal problems of the mouse freezing on wakeup from sleep also; these two mice have anything to do with that? Any way to kill one mouse? Mousetrap?

221KB/s throughput from external drive (firewire) by pcmxa
I know there are any number of posts about transfer speeds but I haven't seen to many solutions so I thought I would put this out there. I am getting transfer speeds in the range of 221KB/s from Lacie Porsche external firewire to internal SATA. That's around 3-4 hours for a 4 gig file. Funny thing is I can open that file into photoshop in around 4-10 minutes. I was wondering if any further...
