Chapter 17. Getting the Most Out of Devi... > Troubleshooting Device Problems

Troubleshooting Device Problems

Windows Vista has excellent support for most newer devices, and most major hardware vendors have taken steps to update their devices and drivers to run properly with Windows Vista. If you use only recent, Plug and Play–compliant devices that qualify for the Designed for Windows Vista logo, you should have a trouble-free computing experience (at least from a hardware perspective). Of course, putting trouble-free and computing next to each other is just asking for trouble. Hardware is not foolproof; far from it. Things still can, and will, go wrong, and, when they do, you’ll need to perform some kind of troubleshooting. (Assuming, of course, that the device doesn’t have a physical fault that requires a trip to the repair shop.) Fortunately, Windows Vista also has some handy tools to help you both identify and rectify hardware ills.
