    1) Are you running Vista 32 or 64 bit?

    Try this

    • Make sure devices are connected and powered on
    • Click Start->Run, enter: msinfo32. Click the + sign next to Components to expand it
    • Click Problem Devices. Anything appear?
    • If yes, click on it, Ctrl-A to select all, Ctrl-C to copy it, Ctrl-V to paste onto a USB drive so you can move the USB drive to a working computer and copy/paste all the data to next post
    • On the other hand, if no devices are listed, tell me so
