Preferred Solution: youtube looks different on differen browser.

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 http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: youtube looks different on differen browser.

That's just how it is, I'm afraid. Though as far as I know, Chrome Firefox and IE9's YouTube should look the same. Other browsers like Opera might have changed it slightly. Or you might have a different theme on. Though I recommend using Firefox, Chrome looks and feels great to if you don't like the look on Opera.

So about a few weeks ago (not exactly sure when it started) my computer stopped allowing me to access certain websites. It started out with only a few, but now it is almost 50-80% not connecting. I do not think it is a problem with my browser. I typically use Firefox, but IE will connect to the same ones Firefox allows, and will also not connect to the same websites Firefox will not allow.

I have searched these forums for a couple of hours now and nothing seems to fit my exact problem, and I am hesitant to use the solutions from other forums because it might further hurt my system. I am not tech-savvy/computer literate to say the least, and I would need a thorough walk-through on how to diagnose the problem, as well as how to fix it.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks
 

A:Unable to connect to most websites -- not a browser problem

How are you not allowed to view the website? Does the page show "The page cannot be displayed"? or you are not authorized or something else?

Try running cmd.exe, type "ipconfig /flushdns" without quotes.

About two days ago I started getting popping and crackling noises from my laptop speakers while playing any kind of in-browser video. It's not a hardware thing, because anything run outside the browser (CDs, iTunes, VLC, DVDs, etc.) sounds just fine. Tested in both Firefox and Safari, both have the popping/crackling problem, so it's not something with one browser.

I have tech support for this computer (Dell business model, Latitude E6500 w/XP), they tried updating sound card drivers, updating BIOS and uninstalling and reinstalling sound card. The last thing actually fixed it, until I started up my PC tonight, now the problem is back again. Anyone have suggestions for me? I really, really don't want to do a restore, because I've just spent the last four hours installing a game that I would then lose. If that's the only option, though...

Don't seem to have any issues with connectivity, or lag that I can detect.
 

A:Speaker noise only in browser

Uninstall and Reinstall Adobe Flash Player, in-browser video's use Adobe Flash player and since it is browser only related this may indicate there's an issue with Flash/the codecs for flash.. Just do a reinstall, post back with if it worked.

Minecraft does not need much but it does need a decent CPU (At least a mediocre one) to do a decent FPS on most settings. In my experience changing the settings does not help as much until you get really low on the game (mostly its draw distance that helps) so I would suggest a slightly higher cpu and a low GPU like an R7 250 or and HD 7750.

Try something like this, Im keeping it cheap but you will appreciate minecraft more with a slightly better processor in the end.

Pentium Dual Core 3.0ghz

MSI H81

Corsair 4gb (2x2gb kit) 1600

PowerColor R7 250

XFX 450Watt 80+ Bronze

You can go lower on the GPU if you wish and the PSU selection on that site did not leave me much room but you can go lower. Otherwise the rest is a decent value budget minecraft build which could get a good playable game experience for anyone needing an inexpensive machine.

Hey guys Just got my new Sound Blaster Everything phenomenal Blaster sounds videos Youtube Sound Z: except Z in the mail this morning After some research I found that I Sound Blaster Z: Everything sounds phenomenal except Youtube videos should set Windows Sound settings to Speakers non-full range in order to best utilize the SB drivers I use a pair of Razer Carcharias stereo headset I don Sound Blaster Z: Everything sounds phenomenal except Youtube videos t have speakers Supposedly by doing this and turning on SBX Surround I ll get simulated surround in games and listen to stereo music just fine simply by turning off SBX Surround when doing so Well games sound great with simulated surround FLACs stored on my computer sound great and crisp no matter what Windows is set to Stereo or BUT Youtube videos sound awful In order to get Youtube videos to sound good I need to go into Windows CP and set the sound options to Stereo Speakers Once I do it goes back to sounding great again It should be noted that I only use Youtube for music As unlikely as it may sound YT is an amazing resource for classical music You can find a lot of performances by different conductors orchestras or soloists if a solo piece and Sound Blaster Z: Everything sounds phenomenal except Youtube videos you can create your own playlists It s kind of a big deal to me Everything else about the card is amazing Windows x Latest Firefox Latest Creative drivers Jan as of this post Problem The sound loses clarity it becomes muddy and the bass is way over the top If I crank the volume too high the sound becomes distorted Not pleasant at all This doesn t happen in the slightest with music stored on my hard drive only YT nbsp

A:Sound Blaster Z: Everything sounds phenomenal except Youtube videos

Hey Coxis,

The behavior that you explained can be fixed if you set the adobe flash player to 'follow' your soundcard settings. If you're on 64-bit windows, go to:
C:\Windows\SysWOW64\Macromed\Flash\

Open MMS.CFG and add this line:

UseWAVPlayer=1

Worked perfectly for my 5.1 setup. Youtube audio was previously stuck on its own upmix (a.k.a simulated surround) settings and ignored my soundcard settings.

Good luck

Hi I recently bought a blackberry phone (at&t) and unlocked it in jamaica (to use all networks) but even with my plan on it says "your device does not currently have any browser configuration service book"
and that I'm to check with my service provider to enable the browser.
Digicel (service provider) has sent this over 15 times and still no success I cant get on to the browser at all to select options or got o or so forth.

It's a bold 9000 and I've checked the time, did battery pulls, wipe the phone, update the OS to version 5 and still no success.

I recently installed Sound Forge Pro 10 onto my computer that uses Realtek HD Audio.

In its Options I can select - Microsoft Sound Mapper, Direct Sound Surround Mapper, Windows Classic Wave Driver and ASIO4ALL V2.

From the Realtek Manager I can select and record from - Microphone, Line In and Aux but there is no way I can select the output directly from the sound card. e.g. what is playing on my web browser. There is only silence.

Am I missing something or is this not possible with Realtek HD Audio Manager?
 

A:Realtek HD Audio not recording sound from browser

I think you are referring to the 'Stereo Mix' audio device.

Try this:

Control Panel > Sound
go to the 'Recording' tab
Where it lists the recording devices, right click in an open area and make sure that "show disabled devices" is checked, and see if Stereo Mix pops up.

If it does, then right-click > Enable, and select that as device to record from.
If it does NOT, I'm both surprised and sorry to say that I can't help you with that.

Note: Stereo mix is the COMPLETE output of your computer, so that includes things like Skype, beeps, pings, Media Player and so on.

Make sure that you do not have a third part wireless network connection program running.
From start, settings, click network connections. right click you're wireless connection and select properties, click the wireless networks tab, make sure the box is checked where it says "use windows to configure...". then below that click and remove all the preferred networks that are there. then click okay and attempt to reconnect to the network via searching for available networks and double clicking your desired network.

I've tried entering the ip, I get to the password, I have the computer name right, but I can't get the password to work. The password is stored on all the computers, but I don't know how to access it. Not going to just reset the password because then I'll probably have to redo the router settings. The same password that worked for Wii and 360 does not work on the computers. In the connection properties, the password is only displayed as 8 symbols, which is less than the password that worked normally.

About 10 mins ago, looking at web pages, etc everything was moving really slow, like a sluggish feeling. But after playing a game for about 5 mins, i exit the game and back online again and everything is moving fast.

So what was causing the sluggish?
 

A:Sluggish in web browser

Other than being a problem with your ISP, the slowness could be caused by other programs running in the background or you have too many things loaded in your startup folder. Is your computer free of viruses and other malware? Do you keep current with all the MS updates?

Can anyone suggest a browser upgrade for an older IPAQ H2200?
It is running Windows CE.
Some sites are not showing up, I believe it's because of the older browser version.

Thanks for viewing this thread.

It started around a month ago when I was watching movies on Youtube. I realised that almost no sound was coming out of my speakers. (I could hear a bit if I turned the volume full blast and held the speaker next to my ear.)

I checked the volume control and Youtube's volume panel - Both were all the way up.

The funny thing was that when I played a song on Windows Media Player, the song played properly (there was sound). Hence I knew it was not a problem of the speakers.

I tried playing music/videos on Imeem, Myspace, etc. Still the same. Even internet games were affected.

Reminder: There was usually sound - but VERY little. However, sometimes I could not hear a thing.

Please help me.
 

A:No/Little sound on Youtube

This seems that you have a problem with you browser maybe. Try to use another browser and test if you get sound with youtube or myspace.

I have just got a new PC, and when I play a Youtube video, everything is fine.

However, if I click the button that makes the screen bigger, it does this but starts the audio again.

This means I have the same tune playing twice, one about five seconds behind the other.

Any suggestions greatly appreciated.

This is one of those too many irons in the fire stories. I switch from DSL to Clearwire. In addition I brought another computer up. All the computers are running Windows 2000 Pro. Getting the Clearwire WiFi up was no problem. Getting all the computers to see each other in a workgroup is. The problem is "The server list for the workgroup is not available". I can work around that by either putting in the IP addresses for the Zoom ADSL X5 switch/router, or unplugging the patch cables and plugging them back in, and all the computers will see each other. Then I can't get to the web with any of the computers. My thought is since I'm not using the DSL on the switch. I need another switch with a dedicated port for the WiFi modem. Any recommendation?

Thanks,
Larry
 

A:Win2K browser service and Wi-Fi

First, be sure every system can ping ALL of the others using the IP-addresses; this proves TCP to be running correctly.

Second, make sure each system is using the same gateway address;
get a command prompt and enter
ipconfig /all
​If this is correct, then each should be able to ping www . google . com and the browsers should work

Next, make sure all systems are using the same WORKGROUP name

Hello everyone.
My sisters got a problem with her laptop, which is that it can't connect to the browsers.
It can find wireless networks just fine, it can log on MSN just fine also. It can also download updates from the Windows Update utility.
However, it can't connect to the browsers. Both IE7 and Firefox.
No, it's not set to "Work Offline." No, it's not using a proxy server, if I go to IE7 settings.
I also checked for spyware, there was nothing.
The problem seemed to occure just suddenly.. weird yeah.
It's an Acer Aspire 5310, using Vista Basic 32 bit.
The wireless netcard is an Atheros AR5007EG.

All desktop audio plays fast, until I start a youtube video.. and put it on pause... then all other audio also normalizes. So in order to listen to an mp3, watch a movie, or anything like that.. I need to have a youtube video (or a adobe web flash video) running.

Computer games are exempt from this phenomena and exhibit only normal audio behavior. Thats why I wrote "Desktop audio."

Soundcard: Sound Blaster X-Fi Fatality

Load all defaults in Internet Explorer

Open IE (Internet Explorer 7)
Hit ALT on the keyboard to see the IE menu bar
Click on Tools - Internet Options
Start by Delete (all is good - if you know all your cached (copied) online passwords
Then go through each tab and restore defaults (reset on advanced)

Restart IE once done
You'll probably have MS settings page popup, just go through the settings
Then at last go to youtube.com and try again

If it still doesn't work
Go here http://www.adobe.com/shockwave/download/download.cgi?P1_Prod_Version=ShockwaveFlash&promoid=BONRN

I ned to find out whether it is my CPU, another component, or HDD ???

When I bring up a browser, IE6, Firefox, Flock, my system becomes quite unresponsive, with CPU Uage History staying at 100% for quite a while, while I do nothing. If I type something within a browser, it stops for a while after 8-10 characters, then brings out the rest in spurts.
This started a few weeks ago with Firefox2. Then I downloaded Flock and it worked fine for a while, as did IE6. Since last week, all browsers have the same problem

My system is a Dell 4100, PentiumIII, 1 GHz, 512 memory, lots of HDD space.

I have no problems with Eudora (E-mail) or any other appllcations. E-mail still works., as does typing and send/receive.

Any diagnostics would be welcome. E-mail me to [email protected], since I have problems using my browsers.


Thanks for any help.

I've had difficulty fixing this annoyance, I have the latest Flash player and shockwave installed. I can watch the vid no problem. Sorry if this has been posted already.
 

A:No sound on YouTube...

Here are the possible fixes that I`ve seen -

1. Open the the "Sound Effects" settings in your sound card options,
and make sure they`re set to "Normal", or "bed-room" or similar.

2.If you have surround sound speakers make sure they`re all plugged in
and in the right sockets.

3.Go to a page with a Flash video on it.

Click on the video to activate Flash, then right click on it to bring up the Flash menu.

Click on "Settings", then click the "Advanced..." button.

This should open a new browser window with the Flash Player Settings Manager.

Look on the left side, under "Table of Contents" and "Flash Player Help", for "Global

Storage Settings Panel"

Click the "Global Storage Settings Panel" link. This will load the panel on the right side in a Flash object.

You will find that the "Allow third-party Flash content to store data on your computer" box is unchecked.

Check that box!!!


4.Run CCleaner

A:Browser trouble. Connectivity issue?

I get the feeling its probably a DNS issue.

You can try setting your DNS servers manually.
I often use Verizon's core DNS servers myself, here are the IPs
4.2.2.1
4.2.2.2
4.2.2.3
4.2.2.4

The best way to check for a dns issue, is to open a command window (Start menu -> Run -> cmd <enter>)
Then try pinging a domain name.
ping www.penny-arcade.com

If you get a message saying unknown host, then your DNS isn't working properly or you typed the domain name wrong.

If you get an IP address and replies, then your DNS is fine.

Yesterday our company network (file sharing) went down. We have been trying to find the problem since then and have gotten to the point of checking each computer to see which one is the master browser. The problem seems to be that none of them are. Any thoughts on a corrective action to get the master browser election process going again would be great, thanks.

A:Browser pictures blurred - ATI Radeon 9000 Mobility

gvaman said:



I recently upgraded to the latest driver for my IBM T41 laptop's ATI Radeon 9000 video card to the latest version (specific IBM driver). Shortly after, all pictures loaded in my browser (IE 6 with all latest patches) appeared blurred/pixelized. Tried to change all sort of settings, revert to previous driver, reinstall, but nothing improved.

Then thought it may be a virus (have Symantec anti-virus & firewall) and did find a Trojan (fvp.dll) which I removed. The system was then clean, but still couldn't improve the situation. Tried installing Firefox, but same problem in that browser.

I don't think it's a video card issue however, as if I browse for pictures in the Windows Explorer, they display correctly. I can even do "Open with" - Internet Explorer on a file and the image displays correctly in IE (but when I do this, the system then becomes very slow/instable).

Any ideas - please help !!!Click to expand...


So to clarify, this is an IE problem with pictures, not a general graininess problem, right? A thought is to try and install the latest AOL browser beta because it flushes out a bunch of settings that IE6 makes. Or, you could just use Firefox and forget that IE exists....

Hi

Win2K Pro.

I'm using a Nokia M1122 router to provide access from my local subnet to the internet.

I can ping each node on my subnet and the router and I can ping outside the subnet ie beyond the router.

Using either IE or Mozilla I can connect to the router admin page, but nothing beyond it.

That is - I can ping beyond my router, but can't access any URL beyond my router using a browser.

What are the next things I can test?

Mark
 

A:can't use browser beyond subnet

You need to set up the WAN part of your router, with the IP-address and DNS-servers your ISP has given you.
In the LAN part of your router you either activate DHCP to give local IP-addresses to your clients (PC's) and set your PC's to automatically obtain IP and DNS (in your network-settings), or
you disable DHCP and use the fixed IP-addresses of your current setup.

If you need more info, tell us how your network is currently set up.

Hello.
I used to be an Opera user until I got ultimately fed up with it. So I looked around and came across Yandex and settled with it. Are there other people having experience with it? Yandex barely shows up anywhere on the internet.

Oh and how would it fare in comparission to Firefox? It being Gecko and Yandex being Chromium based was a difference for me in transitioning as Yandex feels familiar and was able to import Opera settigns and Extensions and Speed dial and Bookmarks (srsly Opera whatwere you thinking when you scratched Bookmarks for a long while?! The same with the huge enforced Google search bar above my speed dial probably).

I only do casual browsing. Nothing too complicated or advanced.

A:Need to run JavaScript on a different port for web browser

you are correct; it is accessing port 1025 on the local loopback ip address.

a) the real Internet website can not be accessed this way and would require a PROXY
on your local PC to make it work. Sometimes an A/V product does this; my Avast! uses
127.0.0.1 for scanning Weblinks and Email.

b) port 1025 should not be open to the Internet;
google 'port 1025' for comments.

you say the school has a page with something like this - - ask the Teacher or the Teacher Assistant.

You might also ensure that you are not using a PROXY by mistake in your browser settingsTools->Options->Click Advanced
Click Network Tab->Settings Button
click No Proxy

Okay... so I recently (at the recommendation of a friend) installed Opera to try it out.

Well I like the browser just fine so far, but there's one problem: The scrolling feature on my touchpad just DOES NOT WORK at all in Opera.

Why?


So far, the following has been suggested:

Someone said "update the driver."
Well may I ask then: FROM WHERE? WHAT DRIVER UPDATE?
The only driver in existence (which I don't even know where I got it...) is the one I have.
It's an Alps touchpad apparently, and I'm running Windows 7 64-bit.
 

A:No scrolling in Opera browser? Why not?

Though I use Opera, I am not familiar with touchpads. But while awaiting an answer here, you can also try the Opera support forum, which specializes on this rather unjustifiably neglected browser:

I have Opera Browser now, and I what to move all my bookmarks over to a new browser. How do I do it?
 

A:Moving bookmarks over to new browser

Depends on what you were using before. For strange reasons, the bookmarks are in hidden locations with most browsers. The easiest thing is to have Opera do it. So that is where I would direct my first request.

Otherwise, you may have to use a free download you can find with a Gurgle search to move them over.
This help often comes at a cost, as there are few good systems that are free... but using a software programs is often a more quick and satisfactory solution that stumbling around doing it yourself.

but its still here.
I seldom ask for help in here about SeaMonkey because I don't think anybody in here uses it. Its a nice relative of the Firefox family.
I'm going to try revo once again. TIA Disregard. I used the advanced part of revo & got it done.
Well, it worked, but I'm still unable to log in to my homepage. I know, kinda ridicules uninstalling a browser because I can't log in. Just a bit confused.

Currently trying out Qupzilla, it is webkit based, but has a FFx look, has adblocking & Flash blocking by default, and a speed-dial screen which can be homepage if you like or can open speeddial screen in a new tab. It's simple but does most of what I want.

A few months back I decided to try Safari browser but didn't like it so I went into Programs & Features & uninstalled it, or so I thought.
This past week I thought I'd try it again to see if it was any better & I was surprised to see it was as if I never uninstalled it.
Knowing Safari Browser is an apple browser, I started snooping around on my pc & saw a folder called Apple Software update. Question #1 is it necessary to have that folder & 2ndly is that why I can't completely uninstall Safari?
It doesn't help to do a search for Safari because I have tunes on here with that in the name.

A:Computer wants to run so slow, especially in browser and typing

You are rightly concerned about malware infection so you need to start running scans to check this out. Which security programs are installed and have you run full system scans? SAS anti spyware and Malwarebytes are good free scanners worth downloading and running. This is a priority because the sooner you are onto malware and virus problems the better the chance of removing them.

I don't share your enthusiasm for Tune up Utilities and would uninstall it but you've probably paid a hefty subscription for the year. CCleaner is a useful free utility worth looking into but firstly check thoroughly for possible infection.

Hi,

I have a very strange problem. I cannot type URL/adress/location bar or text boxes - keyboard locks/freezes up. I have to go to the Task Manager to End Task (to close browser:Firefox, Google Chrome)
I restored my OS from my previous Norton Ghost image, but nothing changed.

P.S.
OS Win7x64
 

A:I cannot type in the browser

Does the keyboard work normally in other applications ? I.e. not browsers. Try notepad for instance. If this problem is only in browsers, it is virtually certain to be a virus effect. It could be an add-on you have installed common to both (all?) browsers. If you realise what you have added, then uninstalling that add-on might solve it, but the chances are small.

In firefox, click the Tools menu and select add-ons.

There is a tiny possibility that your keyboard has a fault. Test by replacement if at all possible, and especially with a different type of keyboard connection (wireless, USB, PS/2)

I recently subscribed to Netflix and I am having problems with their internet browser UI. Problems that their rather incompetent tech support staff cannot seem to fix.

The dropdown menus in the Netflix video browser do not work. Since this is the only way available to switch between different seasons of a television series, I can only stream videos from season 1 of any given series. Oddly enough this is only a problem while I am logged into Netflix, when I am logged out, the dropdown menus actually work (but the season resets when I logged in, so no picking a season while I am logged out and then logging into to stream a given season).

Is their anyone here familiar with how Netflix behaves with PC internet browsers who understands this particular problem and can help me?

A:Most secure browser?

Like so many "evaluations" of products, it depends upon two major factors:

WHO paid for the study?
WHAT was the criteria used for the evaluation?
Regardless of this, I have grave reservations against all forms of IE due to the implementation of ActiveX.
This component violates the original design from the W3C where the browser should not have access to system components UNLESS signed. Clearly MS uses ActiveX to perform the MS Updates which can modify anything.
That alone ought to give you NIGHTMARES.
