Since the last update two-three days ago of my notebook ATI video drivers I had only crashes! Finally thanks to the Vista Roll Back Driver I was able to go back to the previous version and I don’t have anymore crashes when I go in sleep mode.
If you have installed SP1 of Vista you certainly recognized that your drive lost around 1Gb of free space.
The solution is to use a tool that comes with the SP1 to recover your free space at the price of not being able to come back and uninstall the SP1.
When you use Lock the Taskbar in Windows Vista the toolbars shift from some pixels before locking and it is really annoying!
The alternative is to not lock the Taskbar and add the following registry setting to avoir the possibility of moving the toolbars:
I still need to have some software installed but the main one needed to work are installed:
- Office 2007 Groove OneNote Mindjet MindManager TechSmith Camtasia & SnagIt Cisco VPN Client Cygwin .NET development environment: Visual Studio 2005, JetBrains ReSharper, SQL Server Express 2005, Reflector… Java develoment environment: Eclipse, Exadel Studio, Tomcat, MySQL… Acronis True Image Workstation
What I was missing after some use of Vista is the way I was using the shorcuts of Windows Desktop Search in my day to day activities. On Vista I prefer having just to type the windows key to get into the textbox ready to type the query. The bad point on Vista is that it was missing the shortcut part.
After several issues using Windows XP with ATI Drivers I decided to update to Vista my new professional notebook, a great HP nw 8440 with 4Gb memory :-). The update went as I thought, I was not able to reboot on Vista, after trying to fix it till 2AM with the tools on Vista DVD, it was without any luck and as I am not a real fan about updating OS, I decided to do a full install of Vista. So my dear friends of ecenter solutions, or what ever ;-), you will have to try yourself the update or to do another full installation. I see your face Bojan ;-)
To restore needed files from the old notebook installation I used Acronis True Image Workstation (offered by Acronis, Thanks). And I have to say that I really liked the way to mount an image and browse the file as read only. A great tool.
