SOURCE: My sony camcorder DCR TRV19cannot be detected on

The videos from the tape camcorders cannot be transferred to Windows Vista Operating System as there is no USB Streaming ooption available on the Windows Vista Operating System.
The Camcorder uses the USB Streaming function to transfer the videos to the Computer.

You may wish to purchase a i.LINK/Firewire cable to connect the Camcorder to the Computer in order to transfer the videos from the Camcorder to the Computer.

The i.LINK cable is a D shaped port labeled as i, DV, IEEE1394. Please refer to your Computer manual to check whether there is an i.LINK port on the Computer.

Sony Camcorders contains 4-pin i.LINK port on it.
If your Computer has a 4-pin i.LINK port, then you can use a 4-pin to 4-pin i.LINK cable to connect the Camcorder to the Vista Computer.

If you're Computer has a 6-pin i.LINK port on it, then you can connect the Camcorder to the Computer using a 4-pin to 6-pin i.LINK cable.

Monitor is not detected in Win-8

Not all older monitors have the correct monitor.inf information for the newer operating systems. Look for a new monitor.inf file download that matches your monitor for Windows 8.

Many cases people just connect things expecting bells and whistles and that just is not the case, that is why was born. Your pc only will detect certain functions of the camera not all functions will work as one would expect. This whole pc connection is to transfer the video off the camera so it can be edited.

The computer doesn't detect any sound drivers.

The Motherboard you have talked about supports mostly all the operating systems. If the computer is not detecting the audio driver, most probably the drivers you have installed is not compatible with the Operating System you are using right now. As you have not told what is operating system, I'm not able to find out the proper solution for you. So, I'm giving this link, where you can download all the drivers compatible for your Operating Systems (eg. XP, Vista, Se7en, etc.). For example, if you are using Vista 32-bit, then download the corresponding driver compatible for vista (i.e. Vista x86)....otherwise the driver will never work.

Here is the link for downloading your OS compatible drivers: Download Drivers for Biostar G41-M7

Now install the driver the properly and enjoy working :)

Laptop shows only 4gb ram & 300 gb hdd

This is the limitation of a 32 bit (x86) Operating System. A 32 bit OS can detect upto 3GB RAM only.

You may either try installing the x64 Bit of XP Operating System or Vista Service Pack 1 or 2 for 32 bit Vista Operation System to resolve the issue.

After installing the SP 1 or 2 of the Vista OS in the Computer, the OS will detect 4GB RAM.

Good Luck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Connectmy video to my computer

Step one is to connect it. Step two (assuming you have plug and play) is to let windows find it (assumption being you have windows). Step 3 is to have the "driver" software (probably downloadable from Vrdio or perhaps it came on a disk) handy. Windows will prompt you for the driver...point to where the software the cd on a diskette or on the on it...and it should install. If you got part way through this process previously then backtrack and remove all Vrdio software before you start. If Windows does not detect your camcorder....then go to Add/Remove software and follow the may play around a bit and get lost if a newbie but it's "great" experience for the world of operating systems (trust me you will be back again). Good luck.
