Accessing a PnP scanner from a second computer by Wally3178
Hi, I have a home network and one of the computers has a scanner attached. I can't find a way to access this scanner from my other computers. Is there a way to 'see' and use this scanner from the other computers, especially my system admin machine? I am using XP with full updates. Thanks in advance,

Video/Sound Card Upgrade Method by Walt
I'm planning to upgrade my Creative Live sound card and ATI Radeon 9600 video cards with a Creative Soundblaster XF sound card and nVidia GeForce 7600 GS video card. My assumption is that I should uninstall as best I can the drivers for the old cards, power down, remove the old cards, install the new cards, power up and install the new drivers when prompted. Any warnings I should think about...

Ultra 4 port USB Hub driver issue by Walt
I have an Ultra 4 port USB Hub. Vista seems to find a device driver to install but says it "encountered a problem". Thats as much as I'm told. Anyone know how I can get Vista to correctly recognize and install a USB driver for my device? Thanks

HP Pavillion a1632x by walter deodiaus
I have a HP Pavillion a1632x which came with XP, but was advertised to be upgradeable to Vista. Later on, this option was not supported. This falls on false advertising! Doesn't HP have trial drivers? I called HP, but they don't seem to support Vista for this machine. Last week, I was infected by a virus and was unable to recover my XP OS. I received a copy of Vista at a trade show, and...

multi port USB hubs question by Walter Goldschmidt[_3_]
I recently received a multi port USB hub and plugged it into my laptop. It seemed like a good idea as I only had 2 USB ports on my computer. This gave me 4 where before I only had 1 which made a total of 5. I plugged a new external DVD burning drive into one of the multi ports ports. The drive used 2 ports, 1 for drive and 1 for drives power. I also plugged 2 external hard drives into the...

DVD Burner Drive problem by Walter Goldschmidt[_3_]
My external DVD burning drive was working fine the other day as a matter of fact I had burned 3 DVD's but when I tried to burn the 4th one my computer still detected the burning drive but my burning program (ImgBurn) didn't detect the DVD media. Does this sound like maybe the laser went bad in the drive. -- Walt
