Tablet problem

This evening I received the last details and everything what was missing for my cintiq, but again... I've set the avg output, Installed the tablet driver from cd that I had and don't know why, computer only reacts to the pen touch and lcd screen says "no sync". I've connected everything correctly, checked few times, restarted computer few times too. I have no clue what could pssibly go wrong, maybe someone could help me?

CGAA Year 1/Unit 2/Space - 'Visual Concept' Literature on myUCA



You may have taken a look at this stuff already, but if not, please have a read of the production design/cinematography literature available to you in Unit 2/Space/Unit Materials/myUCA

Maya Woes - again...

Hello peeps,
hopefully a quick fix is all I need. I have a particle effect in my scene and when looking at it in the window and playblast the particles are perfect. When I render them however, there gone. I guess there invisable. I've tried ,Maya hardware, Maya software and Mental Ray renders but to no avail. Is there a setting wrong somewhere. Its ONLY when I render it.

It's smoke created using the 'create smoke' effect but I changed sprite to cloud. If I import a particle effect made at uni, it renders, but ones made now don't.

Edit: Scratch that. It seems to be all particles. They appear fine will working, but not appearing at all in the final render. But I imported particles from a 2010 file I made at Uni and that rendered fine, just not the one's created on 2011 it might seem.
Help...
