Which graphics card for Aero? by Phil Chapman
Hi all, I have Windows Vista Ultimate on my PC, but the graphics card does not support Aero. I'm not interested in playing 3D games - all I want is to watch DVD films and use Media Centre and Aero features. Can anyone suggest a suitable AGP graphics card? My computer has 1280MB RAM and an Asus A7A266 motherboard - I purchased it in 2001.

DVD Burner by marine423
I recently installed Vista (clean) and had no problems except getting updated drivers for my sound card from the manufacturer. However, I have 2 hard drives, a DVD Rom Drive and a Burner. Sometimes when I boot up the computer, it only shows my DVD drive and not my CD burner. If I re-boot, they will both show up. This only happens with my CD burner. Does anybody have any ideas of how to fix...

NVidia 6600 by Kevin
In my laptop I have an NVidia 6600 256 MB GPU and an alternate onboard graphics card on my motherboard. there is a switch on the laptop to switch between the two.

AMD Cool'n'Quiet in RC2? by Sven
How do I set the "powersetting" in RC2 to let my AMD 4800+ X2 make use of Cool'n'quiet? In WindowsXP it should be set at "Minimal Power Management", but there is no such setting in Vista (or at least I can't find it). Will I have to get a seperate driver for Vista from AMD to get it to work? Regards Burgurne
