Vista, Radeon 9600 and Viewsonic LCD problem by bobrl
I'm using dual Dell LCD monitors which is causing huge headaches. Not only do I get the flickers, but I also have to reset my extended Desktop every time I log back in. To make it worse, it's actually a laptop that I dock every morning and then use every night at home. Every day the ritual is to boot the machine, and then reset my screen. So I need the old profiles. XP did this great. ...

Print Server - LinkSys WPS54g (v1) by BobS
Anyone have any luck getting the LinkSys WPS54G v1 print server up and running on any version of Vista? I've tried both the 32 and 64 bit versions and nada. Now I really didn't expect it to work with x64 but a print server is just a router and should be transparent to the system. I can get thru the setup for the print server when it's connected via a network cable but when it's all done...

Vista 32 bit and ATI Theater 550 Pro tuner setup by BobS
Here's one for the books. Been trying to find out if my ATI Theater 550 Pro tuner (on-board decoder) will work in Vista. Email to ATI resulted in a link to a page that essentially said that a driver would not be ready until mid 2007. I've also read here that others could not get it to work.... Tonight I noticed that there was an MS update for the ATI - so I downloaded it. Later I clicked on...

Bluetooth icon in system tray by Bobt_1
I somehow deleted the Bluetooth icon in my system tray and can't seem to get it back. I've tried some of the usual stuff like "unhide" and the like, but just can't seem to find it again. How do I restore it?

CD/DVD problems with thumbnails by bobwhite1
I'm using a Compaq-Presario SR5130NX desktop computer with Vista Home Premium 32 bit. It came with a TSSTcorp CD/DVDW TS-H653L SCSI CdRom Device (CD-ROM drive). The only problem I have is when I insert a CD with photos on it, and open the folder, the thumbnails appear for a brief instant then turn into the Generic Icon. That is the only problem, everything else runs normally. I have installed...

USB Liksys wireless adapter - preventing boot by bob_peters
I bought a new HP desktop with Vista this month and in setting it up I bout a new Linksys USB wireless adapter (the new N compatible one). Beyond the lousy wireless signal (max is 54 versus 108 with the XP MIMO card), plugging in the USB adapter in any USB port prevents the computer from starting up. It hangs at the HP BIOS page and won't respond to any f keys. If i remove the USB card,...

SATA vs SATA2??? by Bodidleysquat
Are SATA and SATA2 like what USB1.1 and USB2.0 used to be? I mean does the motherboard have to support SATA2 even though you already have SATA connectors on the motherboard? If not and one wanted to install a SATA2 harddrive on their computer, would you have to do a motherboard BIOS update? Or would you have to by a seperate card for SATA2, like I had to buy a seperate USB2.0 card with my...

MS7502 Mobo and 8 GB memory by BoereA
Hi, everyone! I have a Medion MD8833 computer. It has an MS7502 motherboard inside (an OEM from MSI). After having consulted medion's website, Intel's website and Medion's support desk about 8 GB support on this Mobo, I bought myself an ultimate X64 license and 4 2GB strips of memory. Well, the BIOS states 8GB, vista states 8GB installed memory and says: total memory 3325MB.

Cannot write to drive "Media is write protected" by bogus83
Hi all, This seems to be a new development, and I'm stumped. I've got three internal hard drives- one housing Vista Ultimate x64, one housing Ubuntu 8.04 x64, and one being used for storage for both OS's. Up until recently they've cooperated nicely. Now, the storage drive (drive E:\) will not let me write to it. I cannot rename, delete, cut, or write any new files to any part of that drive. ...

Backup transiet error by boltman
Home Premium in a new desktop will not do backup. The message says: "the writer experie3nced a transient error. If the backup process is retried, the error may not reoccur (0x800423F3). The problem is, it does reoccur every time, even if I just reduce the requests to documents only.

Segate 1.5TB Not Recognized by Bonanza
I just purchased a Segate 1.5TB sata drive (ST31500341AS) from Newegg for a great price of $129.00 w/free shipping.

Iíve connected the new drive to a Sata cable which worked OK with a 300G drive so the port is enabled in the BIOS....

Mouse problem by Boobay
Greetings, Did anyone have difficulty with Windows Vista Ultimate noticing your USB mouse? I've tried two USB optical mice and the plug-n-play is not even noticing the USB device. The USB port is functional because I've tried each port with my jumpdrive. Any ideas? Thanks,
