    GAH. Can't upgrade Vista Ultimate to 7 Home Premium (64-bit)

    I'm in the exact same boat. This is so lame. There has to be a way around this...

    Should I get 4 more gigs ram?

    I know ram is inexpensive as an upgrade, so it's enticing. I currently have 4gb of ballistix (ugh!) and I decided against adding 4 more for the time being. Main reason is because I didn't want to risk wasting 2-3 weeks of my time fixing potential issues with the new sticks (compatibility...

    Failed live cashback

    I've received over $700 (mostly the HP home store deal) in cashback from live without any major issues. The only snag I had with them was when it took over 30 days to receive the check after they said they sent it to me. Now, the best way to do it is via paypal.

    Not impressed with iPhone bluetooth range...is it my headset?

    I get around 30 feet with my jawbone 2 and iphone 3g. So, I don't think the issue is with the iphone.

    GTX 285 price drops

    Yeah, I don't get it. What the hell is Nvidia thinking not dropping prices?? I'm seeing deflation everywhere else except at Nvidia! I'm hoping for a gtx285 around $275, but losing my patience quickly.

    Stepping up from BFG 260 (216) OCX to 295!

    Nvidia HDMI EDID issue workaround for windows 7

    I'm not sure I would sell a GTX 280 (and probably take a loss on it) just because I can't use W7 yet. Just hang in there for now and use Vista. Vista 64 works just fine with the registry fix and plays my games without any problems. You're right W7 is "cleaner" than Vista though.

    Nvidia HDMI EDID issue workaround for windows 7

    Val- You're absolutely right and that's why I'm frustrated. I'm pretty sure MS knows about it, but if it's not a HUGE problem, they won't care enough to fix it. Everybody points fingers at the other guy (MS vs. Nvidia vs. monitor manufacturer.)

    Nvidia HDMI EDID issue workaround for windows 7

    I'm not sure that MS recommended the registry tweak in Vista so they might be hesitant to do so for Windows 7. :confused:

    WMP11 crashes when streaming through IE/Firefox. Help?

    Well, I uninstalled Nvidia drivers (181.22) and reinstalled them...Problem still there. I spent 30 minutes on google through the link Snow provided and most threads pointed to uninstalling graphics drivers and reinstalling...It didn't work though.

    Nvidia HDMI EDID issue workaround for windows 7

    Yup...I've got a thread on this issue as well. The only way to run Vista in native resolution for me is to uninstall the Nvidia drivers through add/remove programs.

    WMP11 crashes when streaming through IE/Firefox. Help?

    Thanks Snow. Sounds like it's a Nvidia Driver issue. Time to uninstall and install a different set and see if that works. I'll post back my results.

    can my card do this?

    Can it "run" the latest games? Yes. Will you enjoy the latest games being run at the "highest" settings? No. For example: Far Cry 2 at 1680 resolution, 2xAA, Very High settings is enjoyable. At 8xAA, HELL NO!

    Nvidia HDMI EDID issue workaround for windows 7

    Same issue here on the LG246WP monitor. Overscan like a mofo in Windows 7. Registry hack worked for Vista 64, but not for Windows 7...I've tried it. Still waiting/looking for a solution to a problem we shouldn't have. :(

    PC will not boot correctly

    I know you ran memory tests, but take out one stick of RAM and try to reboot again. If it doesn't boot, take out another stick. I know it sounds weird, but try it anyways. It worked for me.

    WMP11 crashes when streaming through IE/Firefox. Help?

    Incorrect. WMP11 is built in to Vista 64 and is not listed as one of the programs/components you can add/remove. Thanks though.

    Gamers More Likely to Drink and Ignore Family, Study Says

    GF would get pissed off when I played FC2 MP and ignored her. So, I got her in on the action and she loves it. Bottom-line, get them involved if they haven't tried it out before. BTW- This girl is the last girl in the world that would play computer games...Think "TheHills" on MTV. :)

    WMP11 crashes when streaming through IE/Firefox. Help?

    Yup. I've tried the latest codec packs as well as latest drivers for mobo/video card. I hate MS for not allowing an uninstall for WMP11 (among other things!) -Thanks though.

    Out of nowhere, WMP11 (vista 64) crashes every time I try to stream content (audio or video.) I have no problem downloading the content then playing it, but I am unable to stream. This happens whether I'm using IE or Firefox. I have the latest codecs as well. I don't want to do the following...
