I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A:Suddenly lagging in every game I try to play?

looks like i figured it out, it's weird but it looks like i started lagging because the powerplan of my laptop was on energy saver because i had taken it with me and the battery of it wasn't that good. Now i plugged it back in and change powerplan to high performance and it works perfectly again.

heres the side note on the game below

Note on Windows XP Compatibility for this title: The MIDI music option slows the game engine down considerably on Windows XP. It's recommended to use the CD-DA (full CD sound) music option so that the game plays at a normal speed.

is there any way i can set it up to keep the engine from slowing and not use the cd da,its a pretty old windows game and im sick of hearing my cd rom drive spin.its a cheap and therefor a loud one

thx for the help
should this have gone in the win xp section instead of the gaming section?

I run Windows XP with P4 2.0 GHz and 256 of RAM, but when ever i play games online for a short time, my computer freezes. Also, when i play songs for say an hour or even less, the computer freezes. I don't know what is the problem. This happens at least twince in a day.

The other disgusting problem is that, at times, the computer goes off unceremonously whiles working. This also happens at least once in a day.

Buddies, i really need help to solve this problem.

A:My Computer Freezes when i play game online or play music

Sounds like a build up of heat, the most common cause of 'freezing' try running with the case side off and see if there is improvement, if there is you need to add more cooling, making sure your current fans are working properly and are clear of fluff and muck can improve cooling performance dramatically especially the CPU fan and heatsink.

The music plays fine but every now n then it lags for like 3 seconds. Have done full windows reinstall. Songs were purchsed from iTunes. Also lags when listing on website streaming. I think its something to do with my hardware but i am not sure what is going on. I was going to run linux and see if it does this, but i have wireless internet and i couldnt figure out nidswrapper. It didnt used to do this, this comp is custom built 4 yrs ago. there is no sound card it is built in to the mobo.

Any suggessions?

Title says it all. I haven't installed or done anything different. The mouse lags, video and audio skips every second. It's constant, like literally every second. Never more, never less. It's not random skipping. I have had this laptop for 3 years. It works perfectly. This isn't RAM related. I have a gig of RAM and like I said it ran perfect before...any help on what is causing this would be appreciated.

Thanks for the information. I know that the graphics driver you are using now creates the same problem with my Blu-ray movies.The movie would freeze while the audio would keep going and at times the whole thing would crash.  This solved my problem  Also, try using Windows Media Player, if you are not already doing so, but I believe the new driver I gave you is the key.

First, I wanted to listen to a clip on Amazon and I clicked "listen" for Windows Media Player and then another time for Real Player, since I have BOTH. All it would do was save it to my computer (entitled "hurl") and then I couldn't open it. It didn't even give the option of opening it--that was "grayed out."

Also, is there ANYwhere that I can just download a song without taking out a bank loan or giving them my firstborn? I went to Yahoo radio, too, and went through the sign-in procedure and then it wouldn't complete. The button just did nothing. I don't plan to do a lot of downloading music. I just want to get a song occasionally.

Any help will be appreciated.

A:IE and Firefox crash whenever I try to play a game or music online.

Zog, I know nothing about Windows 7. What I do know is that sometimes computer security programs can cause weird and wacky issues. With that in mind I'll throw this out for you to consider:

Your laptop is new. Did it come with security software? If so, did you install it or have you installed a different program?
What firewall/antivirus are you using? You might want to experiment with turning an installed firewall (turn on the one included with Windows first) to see what will happen.
This is a total shot in the dark, but sometimes shots in the dark hit the target.
If it works, great. If not, someone with a knowledge of your OS may have some suggestions for you.

I downloaded a couple of music video's using my 'Veoh' Plug-In but when I tried to play the vid's I was met with the message 'The file type "flv" requires Adobe Flash 8 or greater to play this video. Please install the flash player and restart Veoh TV'. Now, the thing is I already HAVE Adobe Flash 8.1 (which I upgraded to recently) and also another flv player. But just in case I went to Adobe and Installed a newer version which for some reason didn't overwrite the older version. I've never had this problem before and it's strange that at the first time of asking, my new version of Adobe Flash fails. Anyone any ideas ?
Could 8.1 be for Windows Vista only ? I have Windows XP Home.

A:Music Video's Won't Play

if you are on windows xp home the latest version of adobe flash player is 9. check your add/remove programs and see if its even listed. if it is it will say adobe flash player etc active x 2.33 mb. if its not listed u dont have it. try this go to and look under software. scroll down and look for adobe flash player 9 active x stand alone version download. install it then check your add/remove and it should say adobe flash player 9 active x size 3.04 mb. if it then does u should be good to go.

Please help!! OK,  i bought a dash cam a few weeks ago and when  i wanted to upload the videos on to my notebook but the problem was the type of video it recorded couldnt be seen on my notebook since it didnt support the video format. So i went on youtube to see how i could change the format and i saw a few videos that claimed to have work with a video transcoder (Handbrake) and now i cant watch any videos or play any music on my notebook. i can only see videos from online for example youtube. please help!!

A:cant play music or video!!

Hi, Please write down the format your camcoder uses as well,Nevertheless, if all you want to do is view the camcoder files on your notebook and the format isn't supported, go for a 3rd party app known as VLC media player as it has all the codecs pre-installed.install it and start going through your videos.Good luck & please reply if it didn't work!

Hello Ljohn,

Welcome to Forum. You didn't say whether you have the codec pack or not. You need to install codecs in order to play the Xvid files. The Vista Codec pack you can download from, or the KLite Codec from K-Lite Codec Pack - Download

Hope it will help. Cheers...

All I ever get is this message whenever I load a page

Video never even shows up on the page. I can't figure out how to solve this problem...

A:Firefox will not play video or music on this PC

One thing that is likely to be messed up is your drver. You may need to manually go through and check each driver for updates. By "may need to" I mean you should do it first. IF you have no QuickTime driver, which is unlikely because Firefox is pretty good about getting updates on time, try to get the driver through Mozilla. You also should check to see if only this page is corrupt, or if you can play no QuickTime videos, old or new (try to find a page that will play QuickTime videos, then check the date of the last update. Ifthe date is old, you just need to update the driver.). If it is only that page, try to update your drivers. This is most likely it.

Please let me know if this works. Also let me know if it doesn't play videos even with Windoes media Player.

A:My CD Burner drive doesn't play DVD+RW disc for audio music

DVD+RW discs are a little tricky to work with. After recording to an RW you must Finalize the disc in the recording software. If you do not Finalize the disc, then the disc will not read. Also, there are only so many uses for an RW. You can only Erase (Format) the disc so many times before they stop working well. I suggest to always use -R discs. They are one time use only, but much easier to work with. Are you putting your music on discs to back them up or do you have a DVD player that plays Data discs? Or are you making a DVD Audio disc? If you are just backing up, why not consider a USB HDD?

Hi, I have a pretty old computer running Windows 98 SE. A while ago I had to reinstall the OS and everything was working fine after that. Now, the user cannot open any file attachments that have music or video. We've tried Realplayer and Windows Media 7.1 and 9. I've tried uninstalling all of them and reinstalling all of them and I can't get anything to play. Cannot play a CD from them either. I even installed a different program called Quintessential and it does the same thing. All of the above mentioned programs open just fine, see the music or video file and then go to "connecting" or "opening" and lock the entire system up. Please help, this is driving me crazy! Like I said, its an old system, but it's been working with the exact same specs for years.

A:cannot play any type of video or music file

well, you said that u formated your computer, most likely u need the codecs to play video files. does it play ANY sounds? maybe ur drivers on the computer need to installed or upgraded. maybe when u formated it u moved ur computer around and unpluged a cable. if all eles fails get VLC media player (works without codecs)

So this one is pretty weird for me I ve never had any issues like this before but I think it has to do with having all my drivers up to date I was having this problem for a long time where I couldn t run games for too long because eventually the whole screen would get all glitchy and the last second of sound would repeat itself over and over until the monitor went Issue: Driver won't Games won't play/Video play into power saving mode I tried reinstalling drivers installing different graphic drivers like NGO and Omega which I had before Nothing worked Well just recently my friend showed me this program driver cleaner pro and he said it helped him with his driver issues So Driver Issue: Games won't play/Video won't play I followed the directions uninstalled my drivers cleared everything with the program in safe mode restarted and reinstalled the drivers Voila all my games work with no issues at all except for Counter-Strike Then I tried to watch a movie It plays fine I can hear the sound fine but the video doesn t play Even when I tried to record a video with fraps of one of my emulators which has worked before it didn t show video on playback So I restarted my computer now all my games don t work except Diablo Starcraft and CS However now I can watch movies with no problem at all These past couple of weeks I ve been having to go through the whole process of using driver cleaner pro and installing Omega drivers again everytime my computer needed to reboot When I go to play CS Source it will get to the splash screen right before the menu pops up and crashes to desktop No error or anything When I try to play my nintendo emulator a graphics error pops up saying quot Direct D failed to initialize Error code C D DERR INVALIDCALL quot Yet my SNES emulator works perfectly I ve come a long way from thinking I had an overheating issue cpu runs at around c- c when the A C isn t on to a BIOS issue and now I m thinking it s a video mode issue What tips me on this is that CS can run ONLY in software mode when I can run all my other games however when I can only watch video I can play in opengl which is what it has always run in VLC runs in opengl as well So I ve finally resorted to posting on a forum to seek some helpful answers Thanks DXDIAGNOSIS System Model A N X-X BIOS Phoenix - AwardBIOS v PG Processor AMD Athlon XP MMX Dnow Ghz Memory G RAM DirectX Version c Display Device ATI RADEON XT BRAVO No problems in dxdiag nbsp

What would be something to check, if you can listen to cds but not music online. Whether we open windows media player, or browse to a favorite radio station's site to listen live, we can't listen. There are no errors, it connects, buffers and looks to be playing, but there's no sound. The speakers are on and work, because we can stop and listen to a cd. I don't see any mute that is on.

Anyone have any ideas??

A:Problems With Video Car in any PC Game I play!

Hello and welcome to Techspot.

What you`re describing is know as graphics artifacts.

Check your graphics card isn`t overheating.

The easiest way to do this, is to open your case and aim a deskfan at your graphics card. If the artifacts then diminish, it`s a sign of overheating.

If with the fan blowing there`s no change, then it may be that your graphics card ram is bad.

Also, make sure your card isn`t full of dust.

If your CPU usage is 100%, open up Task Manager and switch to the Processes tab. You can tell it to sort by CPU usage, keep an eye on it and see what's causing the spike.

I am having problems with my computer, in fact my old laptop had the same problem with the same video files, any 1080p video files I may have on my computer will have a problem where the audio will stop for 3 - 5 seconds while the video continues to play, if I play-through the whole video with the audio stopping, the video ends before the audio, but if I skip to the end of the video at any point in the playback, the audio is in sync. I'm wondering if it is a Windows 7 related bug because the computers with the problem all run Windows 7. I could only find things on the internet regarding video websites like Youtube and such but I couldn't find anything with files on the computer. If those same videos I have problems with are uploaded to a video hosting website, they play just find without skipping on the website, even when my Internet slows around 6PM.

CDs seem to play ok, and so do DVDs, but I seem to have a problem with my laptop reading a disc with DS games on it that it used to read no problem. The discs can be used in my other half's laptop, so it is clearly a problem with my laptop.

Several things of note. First it is absolutely essential that you update to Service Pack 3 because come July 10th XP with Service Pack 2 will no longer be supported. You need some serious updating and it may be a central reason you are experiencing issues..

Second, before you do the above there is a very strong possibility you are still infected. Go to our Virus and Malware Removal forum and read the 8 Step sticky. Follow it step by step -- don't skip any of the steps. When you finish post on that forum with the required logs attached.

Third, since you can boot into Safe Mode there is a good chance your issue is driver related, but unless the above isn't attempted you won't be able to diagnose properly.

Fourth, as a side note, you might want to consider another gig of RAM if your motherboard is designed to do so. XP and two gigs is a good combination.

Fifth, you mention both Avira and Avast. Are both of these installed? Please tell us all the security software you have installed and running in real time protection.

Good luck.

buy a waterproof MP3 player all-in-one.
Obviously each option has it's flaws - otherwise I wouldn't be there.
Even if I buy a waterproof case how can I be sure that even though there is a waterproof case, where it contacts with waterproof earphones will be waterproof as 'waterproof' to some sellers just means rain-proof.
The problem with the all in ones like the Sony Waterproof Walkman is that they are very expensive for very little space, the 4GB alone being £50 and 8GB is £80.

Does anyone have experience in the matter, anything they can recommend, preferably I'd like to use my phone in a case for my 32GB MicroSD card, but whatever works I guess.

Cheers guys.

OS Windows XP Pro. I copied music from an old computer and pasted it on the new computer for my son. As long as the flash drive is inserted, he can listen to the music. (Even though the flash drive is empty.) When the flash drive is removed and he tries to listen to the music it is prompting him to connect to the internet, and he has no internet. We took the flash drive to my house with 3 albums on it, they showed up with the same prompt to connect to the internet, even with the flash drive inserted. What might we be doing wrong? The files are "wma" files.

Thanks, Peggy

A:Can't listen to music from flash drive

Internet Explorer /Tools /Internet Options / Connections

Make sure you select 'Never dial a connection' and Apply

In Windows Media Player
select Now Playing at the top, close and open again.

Sometimes if you have clicked on Media Guide, I've found it seems
to stick there, (until you select as above) and tries to open the Internet.

But the new computer should not be accessing the flash drive if the music
has been copied over. Clicking on any WMA file (standard windows media file)
should open Windows Media Player.

In the Player open Tools / Options / File Types and put a tick in each box.

Just trying the obvious for the moment.

A:dualview - how to play a game + watch a video

I've finally got it everyone!!!
I managed to do it with vlc mediaplayer 0.8.6
go to settings, Video, check the advanced settings checkbox on the lower right, go on to outgoing modules subsetting and there from videooutgoing module choose OpenGL video output!
with these i can watch a movie on the tv and play on the monitor no problem at all!
(i guess the key is to get the player to not play using directx or direct3d but with opengl, so if you can get a player to do this, it might work with other players as well)

I have two videos and an audio file I am trying to copy from a flash drive to my desktop. These videos will play from the flash drive directly using windows media player. However, when I copy the files to my desktop they will not play. The message of file not found comes up.

Hey, I recently installed my old game Warcraft III.

When i get to about the menu the game freezes for about 20-30 seconds. The screen then changes to the smallest possible resolution and loses most colour. (Colours turn all foggy and blobbery.)

I then get the follow dialogue box:
"The igxprd32 display driver has stopped working normally. Save your work and reboot the system to restore full display bleepionality. The next time you reboot the machine a dialog will be displayed giving you a chance to upload data about this failure to Microsoft."

I THINK i remember this happening for another game awhile back too but i can't remember. To fix the problem i just restart and it restores, but how can i prevent this from happening so i can play!?

I have a Mobile Intel 965 Express Chipset Family, which i am pretty sure is up-to-date.
PS i have even tried running the game in window mode.

Playing action video games may help adults improve their eyesight, according to a study released Sunday.

People who used a video-game training program saw improvements in their contrast sensitivity, or the ability to notice subtle differences in shades of gray, according to a study published in the journal Nature Neuroscience. The training could be beneficial to people who have amblyopia--commonly known as lazy eye--and those who have trouble seeing while driving at night, the study said.
"Normally, improving contrast sensitivity means getting glasses or eye surgery--somehow changing the optics of the eye," Daphne Bavelier, professor of brain and cognitive sciences at the University of Rochester, said in a statement. "But we've found that action video games train the brain to process the existing visual information more efficiently, and the improvements last for months after game play stopped."

Let's keep this simple. I bought spore. My comp isn't old but just doesn't have great specs. It still played the game but a bare minimum graphics, which I'm fine with. Then I find out that there's an update for my graphics card's driver. I install said driver. Now the game won't last two minutes without crashing... Anyone know why the updated version of my driver is worse than the old version?

My graphics card for reference: Intel® 82852/82855 Graphics Controller family (Intel® 852/855 Chipset family)

For whatever reason spore ignored the fact that my graphics card does not meet the minimum requirements and went ahead and played the game anyway. It worked for 3 days straight with no problems until I got the update. Also Dell tells me it is my driver that's causing the problem so I know this doesn't belong in the games section just because it involves spore.


A:Solved: I update my driver to play a game, instead it makes it crash...

Have you uninstalled the new driver?

Have you done a system restore to a data before you installed the driver?

If you are just asking why an updated driver causes a problem when an old one does not, that is often the way it is. When an updated driver is released, it is done to correct problems, support new hardware, etc. When these fixes are implemented to the driver files, they often cause problems with older hardware, games, etc, etc.

A:Video will not play but audio will.

Hi, Faults like this are usually down to one or more codec missing.
Some Video/media players do include many codecs, with others you need to download a separate codec pack.

I found a media player that does include most codecs required, you might read the page;
I have used this several times and it worked well for me.

A:Video won't play but audio does

What codec packs have u tried? Tried the K-Lite Mega Codec Pack from here yet? If so, install it again and check all the options in the part where it asks you to select the codecs you want to install. Check everything except the Morgan Stream Switcher or whatever it is. Then try playing the videos again.

When I launch a video file (.wmv, .avi, .mpg) it will play the audio, but I do not see the video.

Doesn't matter what I use (Real player or windows media player)

It seems somehow the video codecs were removed somehow.

Where can I acclaim these?

I did a google search and found some sites willing to sell you codecs.....But I believe those were more for video recording/encoding rather than just playing.

Running Windows XP. Any help/suggestions available. I've lived with this problem for a few months :)

Go to control panel => sounds and audio devices. Go to the hardware tab, click on video codecs then properties and go to the properties tab in the following window. Tell us about the codecs you see there.

For some strange reason, whenever I try to watch a DVD on my computer all it does is play the audio when I open a clip and not the video. Any suggestions on how to fix this? Most of the dvds I try won't play the video, some of them do though. I'm pretty sure my codecs are up to date, I have the K-Lite codec pack installed, I think the standard one.

A:video won't play, but audio does

Have you checked the settings on the player program?

Hello everyone, my name is Andre and I'm having problems with hearing audio in my computer and playing games as well. I've checked just about everything I could possibly do and I can't seem to fix the problem. I've downloaded software that downloads audio and video drivers and still no dice.

I keep getting a Code:10.

Any help on this?
Note: The name of the audio driver is IDT High Definition Audio CODEC.

A:I cannot play any video or audio files

Hey Vita, Welcome to TSF.

I still think it could be a codec issue.

Try installing the K-lite codec pack and should that fail, try playing the files with VLC media player (link to it is in my sig)

As of about a week ago, my pc has stopped playing the audio from DVDs only. It plays all other audio and video (even the DVD's video) but not the DVD audio.

I've re-installed my sound card drivers and i've got the codecs and it still won't work.

Recently, i started messing with a new microphone and the sound settings in control panel so i assume it's something that's happened around then but i cant find anything that seems to be wrong.

Anyone got any ideas?

I'm kind of stumped here. The other day I wasn't able to play video files at all. I haven't done anything out of the ordinary and scanned my computer with AVG and everything is on the up. I tried to open the files with windows media player and GOM player and only get audio. However, when I open the video files with Windows Media Center, they work! I downloaded XP Codec pack and still no progress. I prefer Windows Media Player and GOM over Windows Media Center but I'm sticking to what works right now. Does anybody have any suggestions or ideas? I Have Windows Vista. Thanks in advance.

A:Only audio, no video when I try to play .wmv or .mov files

Hi,I have Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 and there seems to be a problem with my computer's sound recording system.I want to record music off of the Internet,I have Replay Music,recently the program was working,now it decides to quit.I have the Replay Music software program set at Audio Driver,I tried to uninstall and then re-install it,but,nothing wants to work.Can someone please help me out with this? it would be really appreciated!

A:The Realtek Audio Driver stops working,want to record Music

I didn't see anything about this on the Replay web site, but does this software require the "System Mixer" to be available and use that as the source for recording? Usually, the System Mixer (could be called Stereo Mix in some systems) is required to be able to record streaming audio.

Check the Recording Devices in the Control Panel, Sound Panel. The System Mixer should be set as the default playback device. With the system mixer, whatever you hear on the PC speakers can be recorded.

A:Problem with audio driver/cannot play any sound

You need to install the motherboard drivers which can be download from the motherboard makers website.
(unless you have the cd that came with the motherboard)
Chipset, sound and Lan, make sure you install the chipset drivers first
