Sticky Mouse Problem by TomSullivan
It's weird, my mouse randomly freezes for about half a second to about 5 seconds from time to time. Sometimes it get stuck permanently, but will work if I unplug it from the USB port and plug it back in. Everything continues to function normally, so it doesn't appear as if other things are freezing up in any way. I have unplugged most of my peripherals in hopes of finding a cure, but it...

Microsoft fingerprint reader X64 drivers by Wolfeman
I have been reading many threads with reguards to the Microsoft Fingerprint reader that is marketed by Microsoft. The drivers are not currently available for x64. If the drivers are not going to be made for this product then Microsoft needs to make a statement that they are not going to support the product any further. There are lots of people that have contacted you about the product and...

Installed DVD-rom & my CD-rom disappeared by MizNic
I bought a computer that came preinstalled with a cd driver but has the extra port. I purchased a DVD Driver and installed it, and it works just great. The only problem is the DVD Rom took the letter assigned to my cd driver and i can no longer access my cd drive. All I did was plugged the new Driver in, the wires were preinstalled. Any suggestions how to get my CD driver back up?

hp photo smart by Tempest57
I don't think this is a unique problem (it can't be). I have a home wireless network with a wired XP Home machine and 1 wireless XP pro laptop. The Wired XP is the host for a shared HP Photosmart 7350 printer. The wireless laptop accesses the printer without any problems. Then I got an Asus G50v laptop running Vista 64 home and added it wireless to the network. In the network Vista sees the...

Windows Switcher by Scott
I just got vista and i was looking around at all the different new devices. I really like the windows switcher, but somehow it changed the interface from allowing me to see all the different windows to bringing up a little box in the screen with the different icons. Is there a way i can change it back to the full out window switching default or what?

Vista auto-detect on USB printers-- how to turn back on? by coop
I had a HP 1215 photosmart printer that would be autodetected, but wouldn't install because HP doesn't have a driver for it that will work for Vista. I got tired of being alerted to this and chose the option to turn off auto-detect for that device in one of the alert boxes, so I could look for a way to get the printer installed (I later found out that I had to lie to Vista and tell it I had...
