External monitor display by vwpepper
Hi, I connected a dell laptop running vista to a tv. I was able to toggle between the 3 options of view, mirroring the laptop,using the fn keys until I started messing around in the resolution dialog box. I accidentally changed something somewhere because now when I want to display the laptop screen on the tv I have to switch it to the setting where the laptop screen is blank but its display is...

4 Gig or ram- Only showing 3 gig by [email protected]
Hello, Just read the longest post on this issue with no result so let try again. If i have 4 gig, only 3 shows, 750mb is reservered for the system. Doesn't that seem a little stupid? If i have 3 gig of ram, 3 gig shows in vista, here it has not needed to reserve 750mb. So why does the first scenario need 750 for the system, and the second does not? This would mean that the second does not have...

NVIDIA GeForece 6800 and Vista by w2m
My Dell XPS 600 was having video problems when booting so they replaced my motherboard and video card, but now I can not get the NVIDIA driver (released by NVIDIA on June 1, 2007) to install correctly in Vista. The Device Manager says "This device can not find enough resources that it can use (Code12)" Any idea what may be going on? Think a Vista reinstall will fix the problem? Regards,

alps pointing device by wagnermr14
I just got a new Toshiba Satellite with vista and alps pointing device. The physical touch pad is so large my right hand rests on the right side of the pad while I'm trying to manuever with my right index finger. What I'd like to do is somehow disable somehow this portion of the pad my hand naturally rests on. I've gone through the pad manager and haven't found anyway to do this. Any thoughts? I...

Can't read DVDs by Waistcoat
Hi there, I can't persuade Vista to read DVDs. I've got a Pionneer DVD-RW drive, and an IDE DVD Rom. When I put a disk in either drive, and try to open it from Computer or to explore it, explorer hangs, with a green line going through the breadcrumb bar, and then it simply stops responding. I have to shut down the computer by holding on to the power switch for 5 seconds in order to...

I have various video files that I've saved to DVD Roms/ RWs. when I try to play straight from the disk, explorer hangs, then the whole of Vista shuts down. I've tried various disks, and the same thing keeps happening. When I put a disk in the drive, then open it from Computer, the breadcrumb list at the top (or...

speaker trouble by waitingforsuperman
Recently installed Vista Ultimate on my Dell desktop. The speakers stopped being recognized. When clicking on the sound icon, it states that 'no aduio output device is installed.' When looking on the control panel and trying to update a driver for the speakers, it states that the most up-to-date driver is already installed. However, when you look for one, there is no driver installed. ...

Today I had to hook up my laptop to a powerPoint Projector to show a project in school, but after I had finished, and had removed the projector, I noticed my screen resolution was all wonky. The screen size was much too large for my monitor, and I had to drag my mouse down the screen to find the Start bar. I managed to change the resolution somewhat back to normal under properties/settings...

Vista Ultimate 64 bit and DVD drivers by wakesurf
I am on my 2nd DVD burner that Vista says it can't recognize because it doesn't have the drivers and this one was billed as being Vista compliant. It is a Sony DRU-190A. Windows sees the device but says it isn't functioning properly because the drivers aren't loaded properly. When I try to update the drivers it tells me the most updated drivers are installed. I've tried to find updated...

Ram leak by Waldosr
I recently noticed that with my computer sitting idle that after a couple of days it was using 53% of my ram(4 GB). When I reset my computer the RAM usage went back to about 25% where it normally is. Has anyone else had this problem?

I just installed an extra 2GB of RAM in my PC bringing the total to 4GB. My BIOS is picking up the 4GB of RAM but vista says that I only have 3GB installed. Any suggestions. I thought Vista supported up to 4GB
