It's frustrating.
I was thinking about setting up XP with all devices installed and working and no SP2 - then upgrading to Vista - maybe Vista will keep all my devices working thru the upgrade.
Reason i mention this is because i did a fresh install of Vista and nothing worked - :mad:
PS what is a power calculator that you mention?
very nice install. i could see another lcd display where your ash tray is though :-) maybe something that would integrate with winamp and show track info or a spectrum analyzer... looks really good regardless though.
P.S. can't see your blog without being added as a friend on myspace
Very nice install man!! Also like the matrix screensaver and the video. Very well done! One thing though, I wanna be your friend because otherwise I can't see the pics on your blog. :(
Thanks Scott, Bimmer

Your profile is still set to private so I can not see your pics.
it's fixed now....
i was also able to fix the usb problems, i think it's a mixture of SP2 and power feeding into the motherboard. SP2 is a hog and the power supply is probably not able to handle it. What i'm thinking of doing is adding a second powersupply to the system - connecting all USB hubs power to it and the hard drive. This will leave the original powersupply to power only the motherboard and any usb devices connected to it.
i'm also considering "upgrading" to Vista with everything working correctly to see what will happen. What i'm hoping happens is that everything carries over ok and works ok. Keep hope alive....
**** U for your negativism! :angrymob:

Obviously, to make such an ignorant statment, only means that he/she has never driven a Cadillac...carry on Sir, carry on!!!!
And by the way, I've owned both 7-series BMW's and Cadillacs...to each his own. And the definition of a piker is:
1. stingy person: somebody who is stingy with money
2. petty person: somebody who does things in a small-minded or petty way
3. cautious gambler: somebody who gambles cautiously with little money
