Power Supply by Vista_32bit
I have a dell insp. 531s with a 250W power supply. Dell support says upgrading to anything over (like 400W) would potentially fry my components, is this true? Is it safe to upgrade to a higher wattage? -- Vista_32bit

APC UPS not recognized by No One
Hi everyone ... I have an APC Smart UPS 700 that works well and was working on an XP machine that I replaced with a new Vista Home Premium machine. As with most new computers, it does not have a serial port, so I added a new serial/parallel card that DOES include a Vista 32 bit driver, and Device Manager says everything is fine, no conflicts. I hooked up the UPS and there are no options to...

Problem with sound only working after Sleep by Horosha
I have a new Asus laptop that uses a sound called Realtek High Definition Audio and the driver RTKVHD64.sys (v6). I noticed that sound does not work at all until after I put the computer into sleep and wake it back up. It works, but it's really annoying, and if there's a way to fix it, please let me know. Thank you --

VoIP phone sound problem by David Venables
Hi, I have just installed a Butler 4012 VoIP telephone to run with SKYPE but am unable to receive any sound through it. The phone seems to be connected to the SKYPE program properly as I can dial out with it, I just can't hear anything with it. I did play about with the sound devices and got to the stage where I could fully use the phone, but I then couldn't hear any of the usual sounds...

I've been trying without success to get surround sound to work with the onboard audio for the Intel DP35DP board ever since installing Vista SP1. This board uses the infamous Sigmatel Audio, the driver for which apparently hasn't been updated since May, 2008. All I get is sound from the two front speakers, nothing from the center speaker, subwoofer, or rear speakers. I have both the IDT control...
