games that don't play anymore on same computer?

Q: games that don't play anymore on same computer?

At least 2 old games gothic 1 and gothic 2 ( raven ). Both played well on my winXP 64-bit. I reinstalled them both. Gothic 1 has no images in intro, and the sound is very spotty. Gothic 2 also has no intro images and even stopped in the middle of intro.

It is the same computer, except some more games. The computer is virtually not connected to internet except when I need a patch. What could be the reason?

one year old gaming computer
winXP pro 64-bit service pack 2
AMD phenom II X4 955
3.21 ghz 8 gig RAM
radeon HD 4870 X2 2gig video RAM
BTW, the DVDs come from " gothic universal " which includes 3 DVDs ( No1 is gothic 1, No2 is gothic 2 and No3 is gothic 3 ). No3 which is gothic 3 works fine so I have no reason to think that the other two DVDs do not work because they are dusty or scratched. Most other games played well including both old and recent games.

A: games that don't play anymore on same computer?

are you saying they were working on the same computer and stopped working after you reinstall them? why did you reinstall them?

about 3 days ago, i was just on the computer. I went on the internet, tried downloading adobe after affects, and played minecraft. after awhile i got bored so i turned off my computer. When i decided to go back on later, i couldnt play my only 2 computer games which are wizard101 and minecraft. Internet, videos and other programs work just fine. Its just wiz101 and minecraft.
 
When trying to open wizard 101 i get 3 errors (see attached file). After all those messages go away i can type in my username and password to start the game, but it just tells me i am unable to connect to wizard101.
 
For minecraft, i have 2 different minecrafts installed. One of the minecrafts let me enter my password and username and begin playing the game, but after that the minecraft window just goes black and stays like that. When trying to play the OTher minecraft i get this error -
Java Virtual Machine Launcher 
Error: Invalid or corrupt jarfile C:\Documents And Settings\Victoria\Desktop\Mineshafter-proxy.jar
 
ive tried uninstalling and then re-installing minecraft, thats all. It did not work though. I havent tried anything else yet. I have a windows Xp. If you need anymore info on my computer or need me to be more clear about some things, please let me know. Thank you.

About a few months ago I can still play games like Combat Arms, Call of Duty 4, BioShock, and Dead Space at minimal performance. But now, I reinstalled the game to play it again and it just got stuck on the Starting Screen or just plain BLACK Screen! I can still play some MMORPG like Sword of the New World: Granado Espada or the recently Closed-Beta, Luna Online just fine. I don't know what I did wrong with my Dell XPS Laptop.

A:I can't play my games anymore!?

The only thing I noticed with Vista and games is sometimes a game will load and you get to a black menu screen for the game. I play Silent Hunter 4 and the first time I loaded the game in Vista I had not issues at all. Me being me messed up how to handle admin account and user account so I did a clean install to start over. Once done I loaded Silent Hunter 4 again to play. No issues, loaded fine. I clicked to play and I got the load screen. Once I got to the menu of the game it was nothing but a black screen. I could hear the music and see my mouse cursor but nothing else. So, what I had to do was go to my videocard tweak program ( I just use the one offered by Nvidia, it works fine) and reset my video card to all the default values. Should be just a box to check and apply to reset to defaults. Once done, I ran the game and all was fine. I closed the game out and reset my videocard back up to the tweaks I like. My game ran fine every since. Give it a shot, it worked for me.

Hi, I have a computer with hardware capable of running almost all current titles, EG Bf3, Dota2, counter strike GO, that was until a few months ago.
I started experiencing serious ping issues / packet loss in games causing me to completely freeze, then re-appear where I would have been. On counter strike source "string_cmds" graph peaks when this occurs.
The problem has got worse now, though, I can't play more then 10 minutes of ANY game before something goes wrong, be it a game crash or my whole computer shuts down resulting in one of the many Blue screen Stop errors I have said.
The game will run perfectly smooth, then suddenly my whole computer will shut down. This can happen about 5 times a day depending on how willing I am to restart the game.
Google chrome has just started to crash frequently now, too, and with limited income being 16 I need to fix this rather buy a new pc.
I don't know whether this will be useful but the address for one of them ( I've had well over 100 by now) Is "at FFFFF8801047D000" and another.." STOP: 0x00000019"

A:Multiple BSODs - 3B, 7e, 10, 50, can't play games anymore

Welcome to SevenForums,

I have had a look at your last 3 DMP Files, 2 of them are referencing memory.

Can you try these steps for me

Test your RAM modules for possible errors. How to Test and Diagnose RAM Issues with Memtest86+If there is no error, enable Driver Verifier to monitor the drivers. Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable


   Warning
Before enabling DV, make it sure that you have earlier System restore points made in your computer. You can check it easily by using CCleaner looking at Tools > System Restore.

If there is no points, make a System Restore Point manually before enabling DV.



   Tip
If you fail to get on the Desktop because of DV, Boot into Advanced Boot Options > Safe mode. Disable DV there. Now boot normally again, and try following the instruction of enabling DV again.
If you cannot boot in Safe mode too, do a System Restore to a point you made earlier.

I use my computer as my DVD player and recently I had just finished watching a movie and put another one in and now it will not run smoothly, both video and audio. It isn't the DVD because I have tried several of the ones I have and now none of them run smoothly. It is not the program because I have tried using 2 different programs to play them with no luck (windows media and hp dvd player). I got my computer for Christmas so it is very new and has lots of space on it still. It will play audio CD's with no problem! Help me please. Is it possible the reader is dirty or has been displaced a tad? If so how can i fix that? I use my computer a lot to watch DVD's so I'm hurting here! It has been suggested by me from friends that maybe it is a trojan or virus or maybe I would have to reinstall the driver but I do not know how to do that.

Sounds like your dvd drive has been locked to a diifirent area for diffirent dvd playback. open your driver's properties. make sure no disk is in as you'll open the disk properties instead. go to dvd-region tab. i believe that yours is locked. find what region is locked to. the dvd's of that region you can play normally. to unlock it ur looking for firmware update of the drive, good luck!!

I used to be able to play DVD movies on my computer, but without any explanation it stopped working after a while (when the computer was a few months old). The computer recognizes DVD discs when they are inserted into the drive and it can usually ?sort of? play them. Unfortunately there are several problems related to the playing:

1. The pace of both the picture and sound is inaccurate and jerky.
2. Sound and picture are often out of sync.
3. Jerkiness occur repeatedly, but sometimes the movie won?t continue to play at all. The drive tries to spin up, pauses, tries to spin up again ? this goes on and on for several minutes and can?t be stopped (the drive won?t eject). When it finally stops and the drive ejects the disc will be burning hot.
4. You never know if/when (and why ) the movie will stop working in the middle.

Sometimes the problems are really bad, sometimes not so. At its worst the computer won?t play a disc at all. A disc that won?t play at all one day may at least be somewhat watchable the next.

The drive is a combo CD-RW/DVD drive, and I can play CDs and burn CD-RWs without any trouble. The problem doesn't have anything to do with which media player I use, I have tried Windows Media Player, VLC, BSPlayer, PowerDVD, the list goes on... none of them work. It's not the discs that are damaged either, I have tried loads.

Surprisingly, to me at least, I can however copy the contents of a DVD disc to my computer using DVD Decry... Read more

A:My computer can't play DVDs properly anymore

Whenever I have the symptoms you describe it's beacause my DVD-reader can't rad the disc (because the disc is damaged). However, in your case, it might be something with the DVD-reader itself. I'm not sure my tips are really accurate, so I just say what I'd do in your possition (which might be totally unnessecary but in my cases, it has always helped with whatever I've done).

Softare first, I'd try reinstalling eventualy drivers, updating them if I could. I'd try 3rd party drivers if I could, or check if some program is interfering with the reader itself.

Then I'd go to hardware if that didn't sort the problem. I'd try switching it to another IDE cable, (assuming it's 2nd master and HDD is 1st master), I'd try putting it as 1st slave, and try switching the HDD and DVD-reader IDE-cables.

Mostly i've just been lucky fixing problems I couldn't explain just by poking around and testing the problem with different random stuff. I really don't recommend it, because when I do, I'm aware I might get things worse and I'm ready to end up buying a new computer. I hope someone else will have better suggestions. I just thought I'd write this since I have a computer problem myself and I desperately need a break (been on it for 12 hours and I still haven't had anything to eat today).

Let me know how it turns out.
Cheers.

There is a procedure for removing the duplicate infection in one go, but I can't remember. So, we are going to run the tool twice instead.
Please print these instructions out for use in Safe Mode. Or Save them to Wordpad so that you can access them in Safe Mode.

Please download VundoFix.exe to your desktop.Double-click VundoFix.exe to extract the files
This will create a VundoFix folder on your desktop.
Go into Add/Remove and uninstall:

Viewpoint Media Player

Delete the folder:

C:\Program Files\Viewpoint
Restart the computer. The computer begins processing a set of instructions known as BIOS.
As soon as the BIOS has finished loading, begin tapping the F8 key on your keyboard.
Continue to do so until the 'Windows Advanced Options' menu appears.
Using the arrow keys on the keyboard, scroll to and select the menu item - Safe Mode.

Once in safe mode open the VundoFix folder and doubleclick on KillVundo.bat

i heard of wow64 it could run x86 applications can i use that in some way?

A:play old games on new computer

It depends really on how old the games are you want to play. In most cases, just install the game as normal and play. Some older games may require updates, like Diablo 2 or Sims 2, but most should work fine on Vista x64 without any problems.

In the rare instance that you do have problems, you could always try compatibility mode, and if it's a really old game, download the free Microsoft Virtual PC 2007, install XP on it, and run the game in a virtual pc environment. I haven't had to do this for a while, but it may help you.

Check in the game folder and be sure that some old MFC*.DLL and MS*.DLL are not there so that the game tries to use them instead of the correct versions. Try moving them out.

if you could give us detailed specifications about your computer. We could solve this problem much smoother.
To do this, go into the start menu and type "dxdiag" without the quotes, and press enter. Then select yes to see if drivers are digitally signed. Finally, at the bottom you will see save all information and save it as a text document and attach it to your next post on techspot. We will find a lot of useful information through this.

Whenever I try to play games via Steam or Gamefly, my computer freezes which forces me to turn off the computer manually. I've noticed that certain games work like The Walking Dead, Oblivion, Left 4 Dead, Mirrors Edge, Assassin's Creed 1 and 2, Bioshock, and Dead Space. I believe games that require a lot of GB (higher than 6) don't play. I have 8 GB of RAM and 120 GB left of space. My computer is an HP G62-340US. I'm not computer savvy so I really don't know many terms. I have posted on other forums, but no luck. Also, this happened not too long ago. Before this happened, I was able to play Fable 3, but now it freezes, as well. I really want this resolved because I have some really good games I want to play and I feel like I wasted my money buying those games. I have also ran multiple tests and I do not have any viruses. I know it isn't the heating because it doesn't even get hot.

I have around 5-6 online games including, WoW, BF2 being my main ones and can't figure out what's causing it! I had my computer repaired about 6 month's ago and it started after it got repaired. I asked the repair guys and didn't know. I had my computer repaired because i got a bad virus so i had new drivers installed and new windows. I have installed HWmonitor to check my fan temperature and they all seem to stay around the 30-40 degree mark when playing games which seems fine, so i don't know what else to do? here is some info on my comp if this helps:

Couple years ago I built a computer. The specs are 2 gb DDR2 ram, Amd Athlon 64x2 4400 2.3ghz, Nvidia 7300 gt 512 mb pci, Asus M2N-E. I went to go play a game that said it would work and it however it didn't. Now I need to know what would be the smartest thing to do. Get a new video card and try to run it. Get a new mobo and processor, and video card. Get a new video card, and some ram? I don't know what would make it be able to run and not be slow.
Btw the game I am talking about is Battlefield Bad Company 2. And for price nothing too outrageous maybe under $300.

So my computer crashes whenever I play videogames for more than 5 minutes. What's interesting is that it is not just videogames but yesterday I was watching a 30 minute video on google and it crashed and I was also playing a fairly high-demanding video game on the internet today and it crashed again.

I have an HP DV8000 laptop which runs on windows xp and has an intel centrino duo processor and a nvidia geforce go7600 graphics card.

I was thinking about just reformatting my computer completely but I'm not sure if it will solve the problem or not and am looking for recommendations. I also have an external hard drive which I run most of my games off of and when it is hooked up my computer is always a lot louder, don't know if this pertains to the problem but though I would mention it. Thanks a lot!

First of all you need to list your exact specs. It is hard for anyone to recommend an upgrade unless they know what you have now ie agp or pci-e, what power supply is installed; will it be enough to power a new video card, etc.

Is this a pre-built system or is it a custom build?

Recently my display went blank and I had my gpu (AMD HD7700 series) repaired from a local store nearby.After that I started noticing weird lines on the screen when I'm surfing internet or watching videos.HTML5 videos makes my screen go crazy.I can hear the sounds but the display is full of lines.Another thing is that when I play games or multitask for a while the computer dies without any warning.Trust me it's so annoying.Sometimes I can play for like 3-4 hrs without any crashes.I thought this could be due to low memory and upgraded to extra 4GB of ram(total of 8GB now).Even now when I try to run big games like killing Floor 2 , I could play for like 10 to 20mins without any fps drop or lagspikes.After that it dies without any error.I've tried searching for solutions and found out it might be due to faulty psu but my pc works fine when I don't play games.I'm planning to give it to a nearby tech specialist for repair.Just came here for some guidance.Any suggestion would be helpful,Thanks!sorry for my bad English

Hey there!

I was wondering if it was possible to have two progams in focus at once so that say I run a program while my brother runs another at the same time. This thought came to mind when I was working for a way to play LAN games on one computer essentialy making a sort of split screen. I was able to make one of my games, serious sam 2, work so that I could see myself in both windows therefore showing that a sorta LAN network can be used within the computer. Now I wish to operate both. I was wondering if I could play on one of the games with the keyboard and mouse while on the other, use a joystick or a controller.

For slight clarity reasons, lets say I wanna play S_1 vs. my brother on S_2. Both would be the same game but two different .exe's. Such as I would run C:\...\S_1 and C:\...\S_2 in two different windows. I would controle S_1 with my keyboard and mouse while my brother controle's S_2 with a controller. I also don't want to have an issue where my keyboard controls suddenly take over his controles in S_2. So now we would have 2 windows, 1 computer, playing the same game in two windows from 2 different executables LIKE LAN but on one computer.

Yes this is probably impossible and yes I know I'm just being lazy by not just going out to get another computer or w/e for us to play but hey, if it could work then better to try than to spend extra money.

Any help would be awesome !

A:is it possible to play ps2 games on computer screen?

I don't know if your computer has a AV IN port/s. In my experience I haven't seen a PCI card that will support AV ports. One of two things come to mind:

1) you get a tv tuner and plug the PS2 in via the coax

2) I forgot what it was

Maybe Radioshack can help you with a converter from AV to VGA. But since its a different frequency I don't know if it'll work

When ever I play these games my computer restarts and a list of those that work.

Now before I give the list I want to say, it will start up the game, the menu, and right when the game is done loading and ready for me to take over the character, BAM it goes to a black screen for a second and restarts.

Don't Work:
Battlefield Heroes

Lord of the Rings: Battle for Middle Earth 2

The Sims 2

Now first off I did update everything, Lord of the Rings and Fable worked before now, but I got a virus and did a full hard-drive restore. Also I want to say most of the games I have are on very high settings, so I know my computer can run these games well. I got these codes when the games restart after I followed what other people told me and unchecked automatic restart. So please tell me what to do.

Hi and welcome to TSG.

We can't offer much advice without knowing a lot more about your machine.

If it is a big brand box (ie. HP, Dell etc) then what make and model is it?
If its a self build then tell us make and model for Motherboard, RAM, CPU, Power Supply, Graphics cards, Sound card, hard drives, DVD/CD drives etc. The more info you can give the better diagnosis people can make.

i could play Crysis, Cryostatis, Riddick, Saw and Mass Effect.

Two weeks later it wouldnt let me play any of these games without shutting down, 2-5 mins into a game i would hear a click and it would turn off but the computer would still be running half the time.

and it still crashed, i removed one of my sata and dvd drive and still the problem consists?

The cpu is at a 22-30?C
Graphic cards are at 45-60?C

I've read a lot from forums recently and tried multiple things to fix it but the trouble won't go away! I've installed latest drivers, checked for viruses, cleaned computer from dust, troubleshooted, checked Bios and checked temperatures. The temperatures are normal even when I am gaming, so it's not overheating. But when the computer chrashes a black screen pops up and a strange noise comes up.

I was just wondering if anyone else had a problem like this? It all started happening after my Ethernet port started acting up. (Unidentified Network). I'm currently using a wireless connection (seperate, netgear) to get online.

I'm still trying to figure out what the main problems are.. I've narrowed it down to either.. JAVA problems, my Graphic Cards are having a problem with these games.. (which I doubt..), or it has something to do with the Ethernet ports.

It is an HP a600n AMD Athalon XP 2800 512 DDR Ram ATI 9200 Radeon Video Card......Anyways when ever I put in a gaming CD example Doom 3 Medal Of Honor Pacific Assualt,..... it always re-boots. I think it might be the video card drivers that may be causing the problem or a few other ideas I have. It is not spyware or viruses causing the problem because I have scaned the PC more then once with more then one program same as adaware programs. NONE OF THE PROGRAMS ARE FREE THAT I USE! I figured I might as well post a note before I take more action and see if anyone else has some ideas. All the help would be great.

Thanks In Advance

I've been running into this problem for a few weeks and it just got worse, to the point where I can't play ANY game other than flash games. Here's what happens:

Attempt
Try to start a game (War Thunder, World of Tanks, etc.)

Result
The computer will shut off (with no BSOD and no Crash Report/Minidump) when the game gets to seeing graphics and then reboot 2 secs later on its own.

Attempted Fixes
1. Took to a repair shop and had new thermo gel put in between the cpu and heatsink, however problem could not be replicated and repairman said temperatures were fine (Though Speedfan said AUXTEMP was 80+ celsius, CPU was at 45-50 Celsius).
2. Checked all fans to make sure were running and even added another fan
3. Unplugged and replugged GPU, HardDrive, and RAM.
4. Reinstalled OS with a clean wipe/formatted partition.
5. Used older GPU drivers with dates that were around the time the problem never existed (yet still the problem happened).
6. Airdusted the computer

I have had the problem "delay" sometimes where I get into the game and can see the graphics but then if I either try to make the game full screen or try to do something in the game, the problem happens. I have tried to run FurMark, in which the problem happened again as soon as I started the test. Now I've noticed a high pitch noise (gentle but loud enough to hear it from 2 feet away) coming from my PSU whenever I do something on my computer (moving the mouse, typing, etc.)

Hello, I bought this laptop within the last month or so. I knew it was not the most powerful laptop, however was under the impression it would be able to do things I wanted to relatively well (films, gaming, browsing the internet). When I play games such as: Hearthstone, Football Manager, CIV5 etc, the game runs smoothly with barely any sort of lagging. However, now almost every time I play the game, my laptop restarts or turns it self off within 30 minutes of starting up the game. I have all my drivers up to date, I regulalr make sure Windows is too. I have checked to make sure my computer's specs are good enough to run these games and they are, so I am a bit stumped as to why this keeps happening. If anyone knows why it might be and what I can keep doing about it I would be very grateful.  Thanks!

I have a strange problem? 4 days ago me and my friend started to play warcraft 3 on my LAN? no big deal but 20 min into the game both computers shuts down???
After this I thought that I had a virus there for run an adwear removal/virus check and thought that this was fixed but now every time I start a game on these computers they shut down in 10 to 20 min in to the game?

So I go over everything
No new drivers
No new hardware change
No new upgrade
No system change

Scenario
2 laptops
(Acer Aspire 9100/2.0 MHz/1GHz mem/ATI128MG) and
(HP Pavilion 7600/2.4MHz/1GHz mem)
OS: winxp pro servicepack2
run perfect before no problems; both connected together played the same game for 20 min and shuts down. Run ok doing everything else but all games make them now shut down in 10 20 min. after shut down there is no way to turn them on again unless power plug is removed and put in again? If not they act as they where killed completely

And logic tells me that a hardware failure on both computers on the same time is not likely?
What could this be???


I am running out of ideas what to do?
I looked for everything?. On these two laptops
Because it happened first time when I connected these computers together and was playing this game I uninstalled the game cause I thought it contain a virus and checked everything.
Virus cheeked nothing
Adwear removal nothing
Reinstalled the system

First of all perform a complete scan your pc and then uninstall avast directly but in safe mode is better and reboot. Now reinstall avast and see the effect. Or you can restore your pc into a earlier point. By the way what's your Avast version.? According to me Avast pro is good, do not use avast free antivirus .so I guess you already have a latest version of avast. I am not a expert but I have some kind of knowledgesthanks

A:My computer restarts whenever i play games or watch videos?

Hello, and welcome to the forum. First off, a common problem is the PSU being underpowered for the hardware you have in your system. If it was a custom built or you built it, i would advise you to post your hardware in the PSU section and see see what they think, also do this if you upgraded any part of your computer recently. If it was a store bought (dell, hp, ibm, etc.) then you should not have this problem. If this does not work out then you can also try to go to the HiJackThis section and post a log (intructions are posted there).

I honestly have no clue if I posted this in the right area, but I recently (today) found out that if I start any game on my laptop it lags on the main menu and really bad in-game. I even noticed my computer is running slower in general. I don't think it should be because I uninstalled my Display driver yesterday because I can't even change the brightness (which I also couldn't solve). I'm honestly at a loss, looking up fixes on forums, and this is my last resort to find help directly. I haven't done anything that should harm my computer, and have restarted my laptop. I can't give you my specs because I really don't know how, but I wish could give enough information to get some sort of help, sorry if I couldn't.

Hello everyone. I was wondering if anyone had input on this problem I've been having recently.

Today I tried to play Portal 2. It ran about the same as always for about five to fifteen minutes, and then my computer shut off abruptly. Confused, I started it back up after a minute and it booted back up with no problems whatsoever.

About ten minutes later I played Dead Island. After about the same amount of time, the computer shut off again. I disconnected my computer, switched off the surge protector, unplugged the computer, opened it up and cleaned the inside and the vents to clear up any dust using a can of air. After I plugged everything back in and turned it on, it started up normally again. I also did a complete scan with Advanced Systemcare and removed all the alert items.

Played Portal 2 again about an hour later. Same time span, same abrupt shut down.

Again, it's really weird because it only happens when I'm playing games like those. What's even more unusual is that I was able to play games like this flawlessly as recently as last night, when I beat Deus Ex Human Revolution. Since last night I haven't changed any drivers, settings, updates, or anything else that I can think of.

So, any ideas on where to start troubleshooting? I don't know if it helps, but I'll include my dxdiag after this paragraph. Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.

I have a computer with windows 7 64 bit and 4gb of RAM. Two days ago for no apparent reason the computer locked up when I tried to drag a file to a usb stick. I could not use ctrl alt del and nothing but a reboot would unfreeze it. The same thing has happened every time I try to drag or copy a file to another location on the computer. Re-innstalling the system with an image backup has not fixed the problem.

The figures from Task Manager>Performance Tab>Resource Monitor>Memory could not be accessed becaudse I could not get into the Task Manager and had to reboot the computer. However, I did check on the figures after rebooting. They are:

Hardware Reserved: 37 MB
In Use: 1358 MB (fluctuating)
Modified: 55 MB (fluctuating)
Standby: 2365 MB (fluctuating)
Free 279 MB (fluctuating).

I have since had problems when trying to access games I have downloaded a while ago and until now have worked fine. As soon as I click on the game icon the computer freezes and I get a blue screen, I cannot access the Task Manager and I have to reboot. I tried three different games and the same thing happened. At best I might get to the first or second startup screen of the game then it either freezes.

Hey,

As of 4 hours ago I became the owner of a new 6600gt. It was a Christmas present to myself so I could get a better visual experience out of my games.

I installed the card fine along with the drivers. I then changed my desktop settings etc. I then proceeded to load up wow. It loaded but I found that it was rendered with the onboard graphics (This is because it looked absolutely shocking). It then crashed. Every game so far has done the same thing.

I did some research and have done the following to try and solve this problem:

I went about a thorough clean up of my ATI drivers from my previous card. I did this by following this.

This however didnt help. I still have this problem..

At current I am looking try and shut off the onboard graphics via the bios. This will happen after I find an online manual telling me how.

Any help would be appreciated as I am very keen to go back to playing WOW.


My specs:

AMD 3200
1 gig of RAM
NVIDIA 6600 gt (AGP) previously a Radeon 9550 (AGP)
K8T800 8237 motherboard made by NEC Computers

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 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 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 1.6.
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 2, Starcraft, and CS 1.6. 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.

Hello Anybody!

I recorded some video tapes to my hard drive using my 5 year old Win98 PC with an ATI All in Wonder card. The ATI software saved the video as avi files that work on the old machine just fine.

Now I have copied the files to my newer XP PC and when I try to run them with Windows Media Player, the player says it is looking for codecs on line but cannot find any to download, then it starts playing only the audio.

I have also tried Apple QuickTime with the same results, can't find proper codecs.
What next?
 

A:Can't play old AVIs anymore...

You will need to convert the AVI files to MPEG files. Download the free TMPGenc and it should do the job for you.

I have never used this software before so a backup before converting might be a good idea.

Hi there, well basically I have just inserted a DVD into my drive and for some reason it doesn't work. I have tried with countless other DVDs which all worked. This has just started happening so i had no idea why. I went into device manager and it said i needed to update my PCouffin Device Driver. So i tried to do the automatic update thing where it browses the net to look for updates but it came back blank. I then google searched it to see if i could come up with a solution and a update because it was my understanding that the PCouffin driver had something to do with the DVD RW?

So I was just wondering if I need to update this driver for my DVD drive to work?

I'm on Windows vista home premium 64 - bit.

Lately I have been having an issue with both Windows Media Center and Windows Media Player when I try to watch a DVD. In Windows Media Center it says "Cannot Play DVD: The DVD may be in use by another application. If all other applications are closed, the video resolution may need to be lowered or the display connection type does not support playback of the DVD." I have checked multiple times and have not found any other applications using the DVD. Also, I am not sure where I can change the settings it mentions but I didn't change anything recently and I have always been able to play DVDs before.

When I try watching a DVD in Windows Media Player it says "Windows Media Player cannot play this DVD because there is a problem with digital copy protection between your DVD drive, decoder, and video card. Try installing an updated driver for your video card." I don't really know what to do with this or how to go about fixing it. I haven't tried much.

I have to believe that something happened that caused both applications to have issues since they both stopped being able to play DVDs at the same time. I don't know what to do and I don't know what I did. Please help me, any advice or suggestion is welcome!

I'm not sure which WMP I've got but I was just going to post a similar question. My WMP will now ONLY rip WMA from my CDs even if I check the MP3 option.

Why is this happening? Did I select something somewhere by mistake?

Thanks!

after installing a new video card my MCE does not play recorded TV, Live TV or DVDs anymore. It will play for a few seconds, and then crash.

If I play a file of recorded TV with Windows Media Player, it works fine.

The card I installed is a ATI Radeon HD 5450, 1Gb.

I can still play recorded TV from my Extender, so functionality seems OK.

Any advice is highly appreciated!

I have looked online extensively but haven't found anything related to this issue. Whenever I play games (any game), five minutes into play the game will freeze for about a minute. Another five minutes later it will repeat the process. Does not matter which game or which settings I am using. My CPU usage goes up to 100% which I haven't noticed happening before, temps have not increased. Memory is at 30-40% usage.-Checked drivers and updated-Ran memory tests and checked for memory leaks, returns nothing-Ran tests on hard drives, no issues-Checked temps, all normal-Ran torture tests on CPU, no problems-Formatted hard drives and reinstalled OS and games to test, problem persisted-Checked all connections-Cleaned inside and out thoroughlyCPU, Motherboard, HDD, and RAM are all about 5 years old. Everything else has been replaced within the last year.Thank you.

Hi

I had a probelm which required me to delete some keys in the registry and by mistake i delete a wrong one. As a result when i now play DVD it comes up with error message:

Windows Media Player cannot play DVD video. You might need to adjust your Windows display settings. Open display settings in Control Panel, and then try lowering your screen resolution and color quality settings.

I know u need to be carefull so i made a system restore but it wont work. Does anyone know what i can do? DVDs now only work on VLC player. I have done a repair with the special CD but still no luck? i have tired to reinstall WMP (11) but same result. i do have codecs.

thanks in advance
 

A:WMP wont play DVDs anymore

I can help you get it to work again... But I need to know "what" codecs you already have installed.

Hi,

I have a Emachines M5309. The cd-rom refuses to play anything now. It would try to read the disk and hum really loud and fast like it was going to fly off, then stop. The only thing that happened before it was that I had tried playing some DVDs that weren't burned right. Then after that, the drive wouldn't play anything.

I've seen this happen on other laptops before. I've noticed that it tends to happen with disks that have paper labels, and wonder if the paper label adds too much weight to the disk and causes the error reading it. But in those cases, the cd-rom works again if I put in another disk. Now, it doesn't read anything.

Can someone help me with this?

Thanks!

Hello all.

I don't know if this goes here or in the software section, so if it needs to be moved, go right ahead...

OK here's the problem....
Since a few days I can't play movies that are 'integrated' in sites anymore. I just see the windows mediaplayer logo but the movie never starts (I don't have any problems with quick time movies).... I have ADSL and I've waited long enough to load the entire movie, but I just can't get anything. When I go to the source code of the site and copy the link to the movie, the thing loads normally and the mediaplayer opens right after completion of the download....

Anyone know what can be causing this?

I'm running XP and if you didn't understand what I meant with 'integrated movies' then please take a look here...

Thank you!

Weird problem. All of a sudden I can't play any videos in YouTube. I keep getting a message that says "you either have Java script turned off or you need to download the latest version of Adobe Flash player". I didn't disable Java (my Java appl says "enabled").
When I tried to download Adobe Flash Player, it said it was "completed but with errors on page".
I had some problems with a site called MyMathLab for school classes I am taking. The techs had me change some settings (and I guess I should've noted what was changed but I never had any trouble before when I have had to change settings for school programs). The school techs were unable to do anything for me to use the MyMathLab so I am taking alternate school tests. Ever since then, the problem with the videos has occurred.
I tried to restore my computer to last week (before the school techs had me fooling with my settings) but restore says "unable - nothing changed".
Please help!

A:Can't play videos in You Tube anymore

Try this: go to control panels > add or remove programs - remove adobe flash player. sometimes installations fail if the old version hasn't been removed properly by the new installer. then go to the proper adobe web site and download and install the newest version of adobe flash player.

A:why can't I play DVD discs on my Windows 10 PC anymore?

That's cause Windows 10 did not support playing DVDs out of the box.Therefore Microsoft offers the app Microsoft DVD Player in Windows Store.AFAIK, Microsoft DVD Player not free.But you can use any other free player like VideoLAN Client.http://www.videolan.org/

Hi
My PC is half year old. This problem started about half year ago. If PC idle the GPU diode temperature is 85-90 and CPU is 40-50. But if i start some game, Ex: Street fighter 4 or something newer the temperature starts to go higher. GPU goes 100-110 and CPU to 90+ and then PC shuts down. What should I do to solve this problem. Check mby CPU thermoplasma or buy some new coolers? I have cleaned it recently.
OK TY. Sry Im not english.
 

A:temperaturee are high and cant play anymore.

So this has been happening ever since you got it? Is it a pre-built system or one you built yourself? Both the video card and CPU temps are too high and you can actually damage, if you haven't already damaged the hardware by letting the problem persist for so long.

Have you checked to make sure the fan on the video card is working and the heatsink isn't loose? It'd would also appear that the CPU heatsink isn't installed correctly or the fan isn't working. What case do you have and what kind of cooling fans do you have?

My CD rom doesn't want to play any CD. The drawer opens and closes, The LED light blinks, But nothing happens! the Cd ROM shows up in 'My Computer' but when I click on it, error message "Device isn't ready" comes up. I have Windows 98. I've thought about removing the driver and rebooting but I have heard some horror stories about this, how safe is it?

[This message has been edited by Tovic (edited 12-10-2000).]
 

A:{SOLVED} CDROM WON'T PLAY ANYMORE

Very safe. But probably won't help.

Make a Win98 startup disk (Control Panel, Add/Remove Programs, Startup Disk) and boot with it. It will tell you the drive letter assigned to your CD.

Make sure a good data CD is in the drive and at the A prompt type E: (assuming E is the CD) and then type DIR. If you get an error message, the drive has died. You can try cleaning it of course...

Now my computer is quite old... i'll be the first to admit that, but up until recently i was still able to play DVDs on it. Now when i plonk my DVD into my DVD drive, the drive appears to be working away, but then eventually nothing happens.. it doesnt even say a dvd is in the drive in my computer. This confuzzles me as it still reads CDs.
I reckon it might be somthing to do with my DVD decoder or something like that, my DVD drive is a "QSI DVD-ROM SDR-081".

Any help would be great as i recently was hired for Blockbusters, and as a result i have a lot of free DVDs i want to watch!

Cheers
