USB flash drives improperly installed by Charles Lavin
I have several PNY Attache 2 GB USB flash drives that do not install properly on a computer running Vista Home Premium SP2. They work just fine on other Windows Vista (Business), Windows XP and Windows 2003 computers. On this PC, the drive is detected when it is plugged in, but the driver installed is the Realtek USB 2.0 Card Reader instead of the USB Mass Storage Device driver. After the...

MS Trackball Explorer 1.0 - Windows Vista Ultimate by Charles W Davis
I have now jumped through all the currently known hurdles in about 10 days, except this one. I cannot find an updated driver for the subject device. All functions work except the 4th of 4 buttons. There is nothing to allow me to set the "programmable" functions. Think about this, I bought the thing because the then new Windows XP did not support my Logitech trackball. After all of these...

No sound using HDMI cabling by Charles W Davis
I assisted a Computer Club member setting up his new Acer computer running Window Vista Home Premium. The cabling to the Samsung 35in TV/Monitor is HDMI. All manuals state no other audio cables are necessary. I have been unable to start sound. If I plug standard speakers into the output jacks on the computer, all is well.... Any thoughts?

VGA to DVI? by Charles W Davis[_2_]
I have a nearly new XP machine. I also have a new Win7 machine. I continually work on other computers for our computer club. I have bought a 4 port KVM switch with DVI in and out. My XP machine (although it has a DVI connection on the back of the video card) won't connect. I have now added a DVI to VGA connector at the XP machine. Still won't recognize the monitor. The Win7 machine has no...

Loosely related question to Vista... by Charlie
I don't know why, but my CD/DVD-Rom drives aren't being recognized in Windows XP...I haven't been able to isolate what caused the problem, but CD's and DVD's aren't being recognized, nor are the icons available in "My Computer". After I investigated the problem in Device Manager, both drivers have a yellow exclamation mark next to them, and I get this message under driver status: Windows...

I'd like to expand to desktop over two monitors with Vista as with XP. My second display adapter is an older Matrox for which there are no Vista drivers. Can someone suggest a simple (read cheap) PCI display card supported under vista? TIA, Charlie

USB-hub by Charlie42[_2_]
Does anybody know the two port USB hub from Mobile Computing? I've had two BSOD's which I think may have been caused by this hub, but I'm not entirely sure. Are there any Vista drivers I can download for it? It's currently recognized as 'generic USB hub', and uses the usbhub.sys driver. Charlie42

Microsoft Comfort keyboard problem by Charlie42[_2_]
Hi, I have got a Microsoft Comfort Curve 2000v.1.0 keyboard that causes a peculiar problem. The keyboard is connected to an Acer Aspire 5102 by USB. The box says 'Works with Vista'. Funnily enough, the problem occurs when I unplug it (there is no Safe Ejection option): The right side of the laptop's own keyboard then goes haywire, displaying 1 for j's, 3 for l's, minus for p's and so on....

Am running Vista 64 Business on XFX 680i Sli LT with 2Gb ram, Quad core 6600, 7600GT video. System runs fine, but I want more memory to help performance.

I did find a Microsoft update that may have something to do with this:...

Display Network Icon on the Taskbar? by Charliec
On my laptop, I want to display the Icon for the Local Area Network on the Taskbar, but can't seem to figure out how in Vista (In XP, in properties for the LAN, there is an option to display the icon on the taskbar. I do not see that option in Vista's LAN properties. Second, the wireless network icon is displayed on the Taskbar. I do not use wireless and would prefer to not display that icon...
