Answer Match 48.3% heres the dilio..i recently downloaded/installed ragnarok on my has both good and bad qualitys...the one thats bothering me the most though is the fact that i cant get the stupid game into full screen...because every time i start it up its forced into a minimized box which cant be enlarged (at least for me)..its just to small and hurts my eyes lol...

the real question i need answered is if there is any possible way to enlarge the screen..or maybe a program like a reverse dxwnd? that will unwindow the game instead of window


You have gone into the configuration option and told it to run in full screen, haven't you?

Hello, my name Jeremy and I need some help to deal with this kind of error, hang , or maybe an app crash. Here's the information:

The game name is Ragnarok Online and I play in my local private server. When I run my the game launcher it works and then the error appears here's the message:

Tittle: Farewell Ragnarok.exe - Application Error
Messages: The exception Privileged instruction.
(0x0000096) occured in the application at location 0x0086f002.

Whenever I do the same it always appear. I tried to open the official server to try if the game is working so that's means its something wrong from the private server files. When I tried to open the official one shows error message like this:

Tittle: Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library
Messages: Runtime Error!
Program: C:\Program Files\Gravity\Ragnarok Online\Ragnarok.exe
An application has made an attempt to load the C runtime incorrectly.
Please contact the application's support team for more information.

I've got already the M. Visual C++ 2005 Redistributable and M. Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable - x86 9.0.30729.17.
I've tried to re-installing the game and the re-patching the private server files and it seems not fixed. Please I really need help, thank you so much for your time and if you need more detail information please ask I'll answer it.

A:Game crashing - Ragnarok Online

So when you install a clean version of RO - no private server patches - and you attempt to run it onto official server, it still crashes? If so, something is making me think your RO installation package was not downloaded properly and is corrupt. I've looked it up a bit and some people have actually had results by going to uninstall RO and instead tell it to Repair instead of Remove.

If you haven't done the clean install and startup of RO, go ahead and do so. If it still crashes, do the following:
Grab Procdump
Extract it to a folder, then open up that folder in command prompt.
type following: procdump -e -ma -w ragexe.exe ROdump.dmp
Procdump should be primed to trigger now. Open up RO and when it crashes Procdump should detect and dump a file.
Zip file and upload to a 3rd party site like

Now, ragexe.exe is what I assume is the name of the RO executable that is crashing. If it's different, alter the name accordingly in the command. The dump file should be produced in the folder with Procdump in it.

I have been playing Ragnarok online for the past 2 months. About 2 weeks back, my computer crashed while playing and refused to start. I was getting ramdom errors..either in the Bios screen, while windows was loading[BSD] or when it somehow started, reboots. Then,the whole drive was automatically formatted.

NOw I have reformatted the whole drive all over again and reinstalled XP and Ragnarok. Still, if I start playing Ragnorok, my computer reboots after 20 minutes..and hangs in the bios screen itself. I have to leave my computer alone for like 1 hour before I can reuse my computer. I know it is not due to overheating as I can play any other heavy duty game easily for hours. Morever, the overheat shutdown has been disabled in the bios

My configuration

Hello there. Welcome to TSG.

First thing, disabling the overheat shutoff in bios is not a real good idea. It's there to protect your components from going up in smoke.

Second, what your describing almost sounds more like a Motherboard or memory problem, or possibly hardware conflict. What were the error messages that you were receiving?

Hi guys,

I'll go straight right to the point:

I'm using a 13.3" macbook, core 2 duo 2.13 GHz, 2GB ram, 10.6.3 snow leopard. This might not have any connection to my problem but I'm including every info I could think of so I could help you help me.

I've installed bootcamp and windows vista. My main reason for doing so (aside from having the best of both worlds with mac and windows), is to be able to play Ragnarok Online. Everything was working fine, meaning no problems with the boot camp and windows nor with mac. It goes without saying that I'm able to play the game. However, just last week, when I'm about to play, I got a BSOD Stop 0X7E error. Please see the attached image. Since then, I'm not able to run the client anymore and I always get the BSOD.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thank you very much.

Because this is a BSOD, this needs to be in the Windows Vista form, I'll move it so you can get the help you need.

Hello! I am very new to this whole shebang so, forgive me if I don't have everything super straight.

Recently, I downloaded and installed an old game favorite of mine, called Ragnarok Online. Originally made in 2000, the game is advised to run on XP or Vista. I do, however, have many friends whom run this game on Windows 7 just fine.

After installing this game and allowing it to patch, I entered the game with no problems. During gameplay however, my system began to blue screen whenever I would either
A: ) Attack a monster
or B: )Load a new screen

I have more than one character, and the problem has occurred on 2 out of three of them.

I have attempted these things to fix this situation:
A: )Uninstall the game and it's components and Reinstall it/repatch it.
B: )Clean my Registry
C: )Change my graphics card (My first one was dying anyway, and I had thought that, that might be the problem.)
D: )Download the Catalyst system driver for my new Graphics card (It is an ATI Radeon HD 4800)

None of these things have fixed my problem. I have included the folder of my minidump. My computer would for some reason not allow me to save my Performance Data however, so I do apologize. If you have any ideas for that, please let me know and I will get that to you as well.

Here are my computer details:

Hello everyone, been having this issues for a long time. Though I've recently been trying to pinpoint exactly what's going wrong since I really like this computer and want to play more Steam. Sometimes when I'm watching a video, for example, it'll stall and the BSOD pops up but restarts so quickly, I don't have time to see what the code was. Other times, it'll just stop mid-game, flash on screen, restart etc.

Now, this is one BSOD I get, I also get another one citing "IRQL equal not equal", but if anything, any help is appreciated.

windrvnt.sys is a file associated with a program called FolderLock, do you have that program installed? If you do, I would try turning it off, or removing it.

Otherwise, try renaming the file windrvnt.sys to something else so that it can't try to access it. It's not a required Windows file, so you can rename it, and if something else messes up, you can just rename it back.

It is a bugcheck inherent with the ATI drivers. Universal. We dont know why it happens (AMD keeps it private). But we may try to troubleshoot.

Have you updated the display driver in between? If so, roll back to the earlier driver that worked good there.
Device Manager - Roll Back Driver

If not, uninstall the ATI/AMD display driver in Control Panel > Programs and features. Then follow Drivers - Clean Left over Files after Uninstalling

When done, download an earlier version of display driver from AMD Graphics Drivers & Software . Dont install CCC.

Does it work? If not, better you RMA the ATI GPU, as it is a new one.

On a serious side note, using two real time protection programs are harmful.

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.

I recently got some help running this game already, but I had two other things that I would like to know.

First is playing without the CD. I know this is legal when you own the game, so I'd like to know what I would use to make this game able to boot without the CD. I searched for the topic because I know there are a lot about this idea already, but the terms used are contained in many posts so I oculdn't locate one, plus if someone knew in particular to this game it would be better.

Second is a program that would let me play the game in a window. Again hard to find and better luck if someone knows for this game in particular.

Thanks a ton!

like the title states. i have read tons of forums to no avail. recently i reformated my computer, and could not find the product key for my windows xp. shortly thereafter, microsoft installed "could not validate this copy of windows" errors all over my computer. a little searching on wikipedia and i deleted them off. but, since then i have not been able to burn cds. itunes acts like it will start, get to 25% and freeze. zune software says unable to burn (unkown error). simply sending files to the disk drive ends with an error message as well. i dont know if this means anything but my windows media player 11 wont open because "windows validation needed". ive downloaded the newest firmware for my disk drive, ive tried lowering the burn speed. the blank cds im trying to use are sony cd-r 700mb. one sit had my check to see if my cd drive was burn compatible (it is, ive burned tons of cds before) and it is, all options are turned on to do it. all in all everything looks good hardware wise, all drivers are updated and "working properly, but not one program on my computer will burn cds.

I am trying to play system sound through Skype calls so that the other end can hear. I have tried using a Virtual Audio Cable for this but the quality is really bad, just sounds like I'm blasting a speaker into the mic. I've looked through online tutorials and most of them have a simple solution; Stereo Mix. I've enabled Stereo Mix, made it default device, enabled it through my mic in Skype audio settings. The only problem is, when I play a Youtube video, the sound doesn't go through. This is my sound control panel when playing music:

As you can see the visualizer on the right side is completely silent, and it's not going through at all. I've tried numerous combinations (mic is default communication device, mic is disabled, stereo mix is default device, etc) and they all don't work. I've searched elsewhere for solutions and they are all faulty. I feel like I'm missing something huge here. Hope one of you can help me. Thanks

Hi Everyone,

Here's a weird one for you....

I have a Compaq laptop (work) and when I am in hotel rooms away from home I like to play MP3 music files as we all do. However, when I play these music files they start off OK, then after say 5 to 20 seconds, the music plays in slow motion!!! I don't know if it is actually half speed, but the notes are the same pitch - just down an octave or so...!! I can press 'pause' then 'play' straight away and it resumes at normal speed, but again after 2 to 20 seconds resorts to half speed ...

This happens for MP3's with both Windows Media Player and Winamp..... strange eh!

Has anyone experienced the same problems ??? and does anyone have any suggestions as to what I can do??

I have always been able to burn and play CD's. Now when I burn them, they wont play in ANY player. This problem has just started. I also get error in my library when I try to listen to a song that has already been downloaded. I get "!" with error stating..Cannot find file. If you are trying to play , burn, or sync items thats in your library, the item might point to a file that has been moved, renamed, or deleted" In which, I havent done anything to the songs/files! Then I can go back maybe later , and it will sometimes play the song again. My main concern is being able to burn Cd's to play. I am using Windows Vista, I think maybe Media Player 11. I dont know.

Haven't tried to play audio cd's since I re-installed Windows 98SE several months ago as my music is on the hard drive. However, when I tried today to play an audio cd, I got an error message: "WMP encountered an error when reading the CD ROM drive in digital mode. Click OK to switch to analog mode."

Nothing happened when I tried to do this. Went to Tools/Options/Devices and clicked on the relevant hard drive - nothing happened. Tried to open Properties and it wouldn't so I can't get in to see what the setting is.

Data cd's seem to be OK. My music already on the hard drive plays OK.

Ok, first it could be an issue with your graphics card drivers. I suppose you have that 9600gt in your signature, so I'd recommend you do this:

1. Download Driver Cleaner PRO:
2. Download these Nvidia drivers for your card (not the most recent, but the most compatible and reliable I found, they are good for solving issues):
3. Go to Control Panel>>Add/Remove programs (if you have some other unninstalling software, for example Advanced Uninnstaller PRO or CCleaner, DON'T use them for uninstalling a driver. For the most times it doesn't even appear in the list), and remove both Nvidia drivers and Nvidia PhysX (if available).
4. Boot into safe mode, run DCP, select Nvidia and wait a bit. If for a long time (ex. 20 minutes) the system does nothing, just reboot into normal mode.
5. Install the drivers you downloaded.

Now try running a lot of games and let me know if the blue screens are less frequent, or some of them are gone and some remain. Then again it could be the PSU, so if this doesn't work I'd question the quality, what brand is it? :)

it just shows 0.00/0.00 as the timer, and wont load the video at all!!
The current video files i have on there all play fine, but any new files i put on in the exact same format just wont play!

And it also f**ks up the video file itself just by being put on there though!

As i have a video on my laptop which plays fine, i put it on the memory stick and it wont play, i transfer it back from the stick to my laptop but the file then still wont play, and so has been corrupted somehow just by being placed on the memory stick!

I kept my PC case clean, didn't try to install programs my PC couldn't handle, didn't go to any sites that knew were bad with viruses and such also had Malwareytes/spybot/avast/hijackthis to use, didnt install any toolbars, and tried not to have many programs open at the same time. I basically kept my PC simple with use.

Anyways around June I noticed some odd slowdowns

Transferring files from one PC to another over a crossover cable would take much longer. 4gigs of files would take about 20mins or so.

Some time ago I purchased a samsung bluray player. The main reason was to get a 24fps capable netflix client, but it was also partly to get a media renderer compatible with Windows 8 (and 8.1) Play To/Play functionality.
While the "Play" functionality works in internet explorer (videos played OK, pictures shown in the center of the screen in low resolution) and so-so (for videos) in a 3rd party modern UI picasa viewer, I simply can't get it to work in the MS photos or videos apps nor can I get it to work for pictures in the mentioned 3rd party picasa viewer, "Picasapp". When I select devices in the mentioned apps I'm simply told something like "the app is not able to stream to any device at the moment" (I have a danish version of Windows and I can't remember the exact phrase so it's translated from memory).
As far as I can see the bluray player is a Windows certified media renderer so at the moment I'm quite stuck.

I am now left with one problem which is, I can play A CD and midi files, my soundblaster card has the players for them but when I d/click on a mp3 file the Windows media player kicks in and tells me that it cannot play back the audio stream: no audio hardware is available or the hardware is not responding. When I remove the mp3 file association from the media player nothing will play it.

I installed WinAmp (Lite) it plays them intermittently rather like bursts of machine gun fire.

Could my Soundblaster SB16 pnp card be at fault? It was working last month before I repartitioned the HD and cleaned everything out. I have downloaded a driver for the card which I believe is self extracting and I am not quite sure how to install it or even if I dare.

A:dvd play

Welcome to TSG.

First, are you sure thast you have a DVD player in your computer? I am not trying to be a smarty, but many people assume that they have when they haven't. Many DVD drives will actually read DVD on the front of the tray, just as CD-Writers do. If you do, actually, have a DVD drive, then you may need to reinstall the drivers and software for it.

Go to Start, Settings, Control Panel, System, select the Device Manager tab, and see if you can see any red question marks (?) or yellow exclamation points (!) in there. Come back and tell us if there are any and what they are next to. Also tell us what is listed under the CDROM section by clicking the plus sign (+) to the left of the word.

As far as getting other DVD software encoders, you will need to specify what DVD player you have in order to check compatibility. You can find that out in the same area as above.

I have ME and have used the media player to play CDs but it won't play DVDs. I made sure all the drivers were updated. Can anyone help me with this?
Thanks so much,

A:DVD's won't play

Hello dianescott and welcome.

Install a player like PowerDVD and it should allow Media Player to play them. Windows Media Player is not a very good choice for watching DVD movies (or anything else) though; it would be much better to use a real DVD player program.

Suddenly I cannot play in IE7 short video in the MPG or WMV format.
I have to Save Target As...and the video plays in Media Player.

Any hints are welcome.

My OS is Vista Home Premium full updated.


A:Cannot play mpg or wmv in IE7

I was having the same issue, went into registry and under Computer\HKEY_Classes_Root\.mpg and:
1.- Change the "(Default)" string value to: WMP11.AssocFile.MPEG
2.- Added a new string called "Content Type" with value: video/mpeg

This made mpg on WebPages get automatically loaded again
Hope this works for you.

my kids just got a refurbed computer..p111 processor with 10 gb hard drive...that's about all i had no sound card....tried a pci sound card and that made the ide something or another not work and therefore it said that the cd rom drive would not work stated that i needed to restart the computer ...i would push ok and the computer would state that it was shutting down...that could last all day...i would reset and the same took out that sound card and uninstalled...put in a isa sound card and that works fine...can install games from the cd rom ...but when go to play them...the screen goes gray and the cursor goes to busy...i assume that i changed a setting...don't know what to are getting impatient with me......please help....P.S the cd player worked before the sound cards.....obviously just had no sound....

A:cd will not play

I would go into the Device Manager and check the sound card and see if the driver for the pci card is still there. If it is remove it and then remove the driver for the cd drive and reboot and let it reinstall the driver for the cd drive. Hopefully that will solve it.

But when I tried to load it none of my video players could do the format, which video player allows to play it?

Possibly "Nero Showtime". "Nero Digital" is Mp4. So is DIVX (sort of).

I have downloaded a few movies and when I go to play them the time begins to count off, but the there is nothing but blank screen and no audio. All of the files are AVI's . I have tried downloading codec and even a different AVI player but they all do the same thing. Is it a player problem or a bad file? Is there a program to either repair or check AVI's to see if they are any good? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

A:AVI will not play

Try downloading the divx codex from here, I think it will fix you up.

A friend of mine recorded some shows onto DVDs while he was in Hong Kong for me. But I can't play it on my DVD player, or on my computer!

My DVD player is region-less, but it still can't play the discs for some reason. And it's worse on the computer, when I put the DVDs in, nothing happens and it crashes when I try to click on Drive D: in My Computer!!!

Why is this happening? Is it because of the different regions? How can I make it play on my computer and/or on my DVD player?

Please help, thanks.

I think I FINALLY burned a vcd right, lol. I use to pop it into the computer and it wouldn't play, but this time it did. The only problem I am having is I can't seem to get it to play in my dvd player that supposodly supports them. Here is the burning guide I went by after I converted the video's:

that all worked fine.
here is a link to the dvd player I own:

it seems that, from reading the reviews that some people either get the vcd's to play or not at all I'm going to be getting some vcd's off someone, so I will see if those play or not.
