How do I get my ATI 9600 TX to work with Vista by Charles
All I get is that it installed fine, but the device wont start.... Thia is what I get in Properties: "Windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems. (Code 43)" I have already let windows sort it from updates, but no joy, so I went to the ATI site & downloaded the latest driver version that also said it was for Vista, but still no joy....

Split personality. by Charles
My enviromental variables insist that I have both an AMD and an Intel Core 2 Duo processor. I del. the AMD and next time I check its back in there. This hard drive was new and has never had an AMD connected to it. With the exception that my second maching that is on a direct LAN with has an AMD 64. Does my box need to go see a shrink?

Adaptec APA-1460 Series SCSI Card by Charles Crowder
Has anybody successfully installed drivers for this PCMCIA card? I need it to access my Jazz drive. The driver that is listed in ADD HARDWARE won't install. It says that the driver does not support Vista and there are no XP drivers available for d/l. The latest ones are for Win98/NT. I wanted to ask Adaptec about this, but since the cards are out of warranty, I cannot email them a question.
