Hi, I recently re-installed Win 7 Ultimate on a fresh hard drive in my Dell XPS 1340, and used my OEM-supplied disk to install drivers. I also used Driver Robot to auto-install or update the drivers, as well as searching the Dell website. I then burned a System Recovery disk and HDD file. After Win 7's auto-update installs SP 1, it goes to BSOD when restarting - either from hibernation or from fresh boot. This has happened twice. The first time, in the midst of repairing startup, it tried to perform a system restore, which failed. I used my newly …

I'm about to [URL="http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows7/whats-included-in-windows-7-service-pack-1-sp1"]install SP1 for Windows 7[/URL], it seems like it includes a lot of already-installed improvements but it also promises to include "improvements to features and services in Windows 7, such as improved reliability when connecting to HDMI audio devices, printing using the XPS Viewer, and restoring previous folders in Windows Explorer after restarting." So here we go... and by the way I can definitely use the improved reliability when connecting to HDMI audio devices on my Media Center at home too.

Microsoft has put the brakes on Windows XP Service Pack 3, which was supposed to be available yesterday through the [URL=http://update.microsoft.com/windowsupdate/v6/default.aspx?ln=en-us]Windows Update Website[/URL]. A [URL=http://forums.microsoft.com/TechNet/ShowPost.aspx?PostID=3262170&SiteID=17]Tuesday post[/URL] on its TechNet site said a “compatibility issue” between Microsoft’s Dynamics Retail Management System point-of-sale application and SP3 has caused the delay. The same issue effects [URL=http://www.microsoft.com/windows/products/windowsvista/sp1.mspx] Vista SP1[/URL], but [URL=http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=b0c7136d-5ebb-413b-89c9-cb3d06d12674&DisplayLang=en]that update[/URL], released last week, has already been pushed out via Microsoft’s Automatic Updates.

[URL="http://www.itpro.co.uk/news/181083/microsoft-offers-free-vista-sp1-support.html"]According to IT Pro[/URL] Microsoft has done a u-turn when it comes to charging users for installation or compatibility support with regard to Vista SP1. It says that Microsoft is now "offering free support to any Windows Vista SP1 user experiencing problems." Quoting Microsoft MVP Brandon LeBlanc, it reports "you have a variety of options you can choose for support, all of which will not cost you any support fee." Indeed, it would appear that the Microsoft Vista support site is now offering totally free support for SP1 installation and compatibility issues be it via email, IM or telephone to …

Evening everyone! As most of you will proberbly already be aware that the first service pack for MS Vista is looming. Although the final version won't be available on MS update until proberbly next month - it is available as a download (roughly about 450Mb) direct from MS. I decided to go all out and install it on my laptop earlier on, and during the setup it asked me to make sure that I had at least 7.5Gb of free space for the service pack. (Not exactly sure why it requested so much?) The install was pretty much painless although …

Oh the irony. Windows Vista Service Pack 1 is, quite rightly, being pushed hard on the merits of the numerous security improvements over the original release. However, despite the fact that Vista SP1 will not be made available to end users until March, because it has just been released to manufacturing I guess it should come as no surprise that it has also already hit the pirate download sites. Indeed, BitTorrent tracker sites report hundreds of seeders and hundreds more lechers within 24 hours of that RTM release. It would appear that what is circulating here, as a 2.9GB file, …

What started off as a show of political defiance, with thousands of file-sharing downloader’s joining forces and planning to field 140 candidates in the September Swedish elections, has spread to the US. The trigger in Sweden was the May 31st police raid on a community of a million BitTorrent users called The Pirate Bay. The [URL="http://www2.piratpartiet.se/the_pirate_party"]Piratpartiet [/URL](pirate Party), which actually formed in January, was quick to organize protests amongst the Xbox Generation. Indeed, some 1000 did just that in Gothenburg and Stockholm on June 3rd, and the resulting publicity in Sweden has seen Pirate Party membership swell to in excess …
