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!

When recording my voice sounds like a chipmunk


Even though you say you did not mess with the settings, I'd suggest you check the audio recoding settings in Vista anyway. Better make sure all those are correct.

If you are using an internal microphone, I'd suggest trying an external one (if you already have that, try a different one). Even a webcam with built in mic will do. That way you can isolate the cause.
Based on my experience I'd say that chances are bugger that it is a loose contact, so make sure to check your plug if it's an external mic.

Another "No Audio output device is installed"


Actually the problem that you have is the power management. Go into Control panel then the power settings. Make sure to turn off system standby. The reason that it is not installed after it comes from sleep is that it is not reenabling. THe computer turns off the component during sleep.

Invalid Partition Table


now a day, no installation CD or DVD come with any of the new laptop anymore. you need to make a backup copy of the operating system when you first fired it up. if yu did. you still can make a backup from programs>accessories>backup.
but since the laptop is DOA. look for your receipt, the laptop should have one year warranty from best-buy. if not it should be have the warrant from DELL.
since you don't have the DVD. you can request one from DELL.
