3 screens problem (1x 9200 SE PCI & 1x 9800 Pro AGP) by lozzd
Hi, I've had a fun night trying to figure out how they've broken multi-adapter mutli-screen support in Vista. In XP, just installing the drivers is enough for all 4 screens to appear in the display properties ready to be enabled. From the start, the 9800 (the VGA card) was picked up fine, and the 9200 could not start thanks to Code 43 (very useful!)

3-button Mouse Driver by stevemac
Hi, I have just installed Vista Home Basic. I use a fairly old Logitech mouse which does not have a Vista compatible driver. Windows has installed the standard 2 button mouse driver which does not recognise the 3rd button. Is there any way to install an MS standard 3 button driver so I can use the 3rd button on my mouse?

32 bit Audigy drivers work on RC1 x64!!! by AndyMAc
Heres a weird one. Rc1 didnt detect my ancient Audigy 1 card so I tried all of creatives beta drivers and none of those worked ( all told me I had no soundblaster hardware). Thought I was going to have to format and go back to 32 bit until I found my old cd that came with the card. Tried that and no surprise it wouldnt run. So I got vista to try to detect the hardware and browsed to the...

32 bit verses 64 bit hardware or software by greenarow1
Does anyone know if there is a comparison chart for 32 bit verses 64 bit hardware for Vista? Or do I have to look at each one separately? Also, is there a list of vendors that are supporting 64 bit Vista? I am in sort of a bind because I work in the field of computer forensics and presently Vista 32 bit does not support or some of the functions do not work for some of my forensics tools...

32bit Vista and RTA1025W router by Virginia
Hi, I was trying to install a router and connect to broadband but after speaking to a help desk they said Vista couldn't see the modem. We Ping'd it and it did not see it. They asked if I'd done all the Microsoft Vista updates which I have (although I've just read about SP1) and haven't got that yet - hopefully when its pushed out it will update. Any ideas please?
