Question about Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate Edition

1 Answer

Traveling with Vista

I know this sounds weird but I have a Dell XPS which has Vista. It is about 18 months old. I brought this as my travel computer. Two differnt times, I have gone to a hotel ( different hotels, different cities) and signed on with the hotel wireless. First time it works fine. But any time after that, the computer has progressive bad behavior. At first it will not sign on to the internet and then it will not power up at all. But here is the really weird part, I get home to my wireless, and it is fine. I called my geek guys and they had not idea. Is this some sort of firewall or security setting that I can fix? I hate to think my travel computer is not happy traveling!

I have a new Dell xps 18 and was wondering if the windows logo on the bezel is supposed to give a swooshing sound when touching it.. this didn't happen yesterday when I bought it...


Windows sounds are optional items that can be turned on and off in the Control Panel. That swooshing sound is one of those options, so this can be normal depending on how things are set up. If it did not happen yesterday but does today, then that could be because yesterday the computer had not fully "unpacked" itself from the "new from factory" state but has completed that process by now or it could be that you unknowingly changed an option or installed a program that modified the Windows sound configuration to include this sound. In any case, it is nothing that is causing harm and can be turned off if you wish by going into the Control Panel.

If you want to have Internet access while you are travelling, then I suggest you get a laptop with a 3G USB wireless adapter (this uses the existing mobile phone network) with an Internet Service Provider that can give you the coverage in the areas you want to travel.
I suggest you get a printer that connects to the laptop using an USB cable.
I also suggest you get a power inverter to convert 12volts to mains voltage so you can use your laptop away from mains supply.
or
You can a 12volts power converter to the voltage requirements of your laptop instead of a power inverter.

Missing hd audio codec


Hi, I was searching for this driver on the Internet and it seems to be your lucky day, here I found the IDT drivers for Audio, http://rapidshare.com/files/190141494/PIDT001.zip for Windows XP for the Studio XPS 1640, now because this computer was designed for Windows Vista, Dell will not be responsible for the use of this driver, nor any future damage that it might cause, not that I've seen the case, but Online forums state that this driver is 100% working with no issues, if you happen to have one, please let me know, the link is a rapidshare download server, just follow the instruction on the free user and go ahead. Regards. P.S. Here are the Dell Drivers for Vista, in case when Windows 7 comes out you want to just do the upgrade option with vista, and it should solve everyones issues. http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen&ServiceTag=&SystemID=STUDIOXPS16&os=WLH&osl=en&catid=&impid=
