USB 2.0 vs Firewire by Zoloft
Hola! Purchased myself a nifty 1 TB Western Digital External to celebrate Black Friday. Has both the USB 2.0 and Firewire options. I've never used Firewire, so I was just wondering what everyone (or, anyone who reads this)'s opinion on which is the better option, Vista Home Premium x64. Thanks for reading, and for your input!

Adding a hardware device by Maurice
Attempting to add an internal DVD ROM drive that is supposed to be plug and play. When booting, error 'no system found' is generated. When the drive is removed the machine boots normally. Apparently, the presence of the drive confuses the system. If the drive is connected after booting there is the option to 'add a hardware device'. Regrettably this option does not offer drives as a...

Simple RAM and optical drive Q's by bigdave234
Hey, recently bought a HP pavillion elite m9351, advertised with 4gb of ram and the vista home premium 64bit OS. The base only contains 3x 1gb sticks, the system bios is recognising 3gb of ram... am i missing something? is there onboard ram in this model or have i been sent a dud? it has 752mb of dedicated graphics and 2.5gb allocated by the OS, which would possibly rule out the missing ram being...

Hi! 2 days ago something happened to my computer and since then 2 problems are constantly occurring: - Every time I turn on my computer, Windows Boot Manager asks me to choose an operating system to start.

RealTek with no sound by [email protected]
I've been trying to get sound on my Vista machine to work for a couple of days. I have an ASUS A7V8X-X mother board running an AMD Athlon 2600+ processer. The sound card is a AC97 RealTek. What's odd is that the sound originally worked after the Vista install, which as a clean install onto a new HD. At some point, the sound stopped working. I went through installing all sorts of sound...

Nasty problem with nVidia onboard NICs in Vista x64 by Scott[_9_]
Hi all. For 9 months at least I've been happily running Vista x64 on an ASUS P5N32-E SLI motherboard with nVidia nForce 680i SLI chipset, with dual onboard NICs. I keep current with the MS patches (Vista is currently SP1). Following a reboot, and I believe some auto-installed MS patches, my NICs have stopped working. After the reboot, what appears to have happened is Vista has installed two...

Microsoft Mouse BT5000 can not install by Carlos[_6_]
Hi all, I've been trying to install a MS bluetooth mouse 5000 to the Vista Ultimate partition in a Macbook pro with no success. The irony is that is works flawlessly on the MacOSX side but not under Vista... Sometimes it can be detected, and supposedly able to add it to the list, but when I open the bluetooth wizard again, the device is not there..
