    My keyboard is locked on my sight in my computer at home. I was typing an email letter and it started to only type one letter if I were to type the word cell--it would only type cel.. A screen popped up and I wish I could remember what it said but I can't. I can remember I said yes and I think that's where I went wrong.

It looks like your keyboard driver got messed up, especially if you are using a wireless keyboard or something.

Advise you reinstall vista and update the current one, that should keep your applications and files intact.

No driver for Canoscan FB 630U Vista 64 bit


Unfortunately, it doesn't look like Canon supports this scanner under Vista. Check if the Windows generic TWAIN scanner driver will work. The Canon software won't work. If the generic driver can be installed, then you should be able to acquire scans in Paint (File > Import from Scanner or Camera), Windows Fax and Scan (New Scan) (some versions of Vista) or Windows Photo Gallery (IIRC it works like Paint).

I hope this helps.

(Canon wants you to upgrade. I have a different scanner that isn't officially supported past XP and the generic driver works fine. Unfortunately, you can't just use the XP driver in the compatibility mode due to the lack of signed drivers that are required in the 64-bit OS)

I just built a computer with 16Gb of DDR2 RAM. What OS should I put on this baby so that I can actually USE all 16GB of RAM? I was going to go with 2008 Server but someone told me Windows 7 would support...


Hi,

Thanks for using Fixya.

Wow, 16gigs of RAM... thats alot!
Well, for you to be able to get full use of your 16gigs ram. You need to be using a 64BIT OS. Windows Vista and Windows 7 has 64bit versions. The main problem that you will encounter with using 64bit OS is driver compatibility with your devices. Hopefully all your components have 64bit drivers. I hope this helps.

Thanks and have a nice day.

There are compatability issues with many of the 32 bit software titles. The 64 bit version of Vista is not backwards compatable with all titles of 32 bit Vista. You will have to down load the patch or 64 bit version of the titles you are having trouble with. You can try to run it in compatability mode but things like Turbo C/C++ will not function in that mode correctly. They won't debug right.

Drivers for M5641


There is no difference whatsoever between drivers for Vista Home, Vista Ultimate or, indeed, any version of Vista. They are all the same Operating System just with bits enabled or disabled accordingly.

Please can you clarify exactly which OS you have. Is it 32 bit or 64 bit? You will almost certainly have the 32-bit version and need to go to the appropriate page. 64-bit drivers will not work with 32-bit Os's and vice versa.

Just in case, here is the link for the drivers... yoiu just need to choose the exact OS remembering the 32 bit option (assuming you do have a 32-bit OS)

Adobe Photo Deluxe 2.0 will not work with Vista


yes
if your machine is 64-bit Vista, then you need to install Windows XP-64bit.
you can install Windows 32-bit on a 64-bit machine, it will work. just not as good. However, you can't install 64-bit OS on a 32-bit machine.
if the machine is 32-bit then you can install any type of OS you want, you can even install them as dual boot.
