Hey guys, always when I play a game which GameGuard has been put to prevent hacks, it always comes up with this Windows Host Process Error. When GameGuard launches, an error pops up and says "Host process has stopped working and will close". The game still works but I'm wondering if this is a problem. It seems nothing is affected by this error, however I would still like to get rid of it because it basically spams my event log with a bunch of error logs. I am running Windows Vista Home Premium.

ok so i got a new compaq pc and my old polkaudio speakers wont work! does anyone no what the problem is? i no that they are connected properly, and the volume is cranked to the fullest and all sounds still play quietly. the speakers worked properly on my old pc though.

A:speakers not working properly, sound is very low, connected properly, please help!

I think...

1.You may have accidently adjusted you sound configuration settings.
2.You may not have the correct sound Drive (Or none at all). If so check your sound card and browse the web for installable driver (The acctual drivers don't cost anything)

I upgraded from XP to Vista Ultimate. I have all updates both optional and
required. Since the upgrade I've noticed that when I am in IE and click on a
linked video (for example, a .mov file or anything like that instead of
getting the video I get a 404. Every time, without exception. Youtube still
works for me, so I don't know why it wouldn't be a problem there too... it's
only when I actually click on the link to a video. I've trid it in Safari and
it works for me, so the problem is definitely IE.

Also, if I click on a link and it makes a new page pop up, after about 20-30
times of doing this (during the course of the computer being on) IE will not
let me open any other links that create a new window. I tried restarting IE,
but it doesn't work. I also tried starting alternative internet browsers
after IE caused it to not open new windows, but every alternative browser
wouldn't work properly either. This is really getting to be an aggravation,
as I have to restart my computer every single time this happens.

Short of a complete reformat, I really don't know what to do. I hate to
format because I don't want to take a full day out of my life just to fix
something that should have worked properly in the first place. Anything you
guys can advise me on would be appreciated more than you know.

I have sort of an odd problem. I have a desktop computer that is connect to the internet wirelessly. Everything works fine there. I also have an xbox360 connected to the desktop via an Ethernet cable. I use this connection primarily to stream movies from my computer to the xbox. Today in the middle of a movie the movie stopped playing and gave me an error saying xbox isn't connected to the computer any more.
I checked the physical connection and everything was fine. I looked at my desktop (running windows xp) and noticed my LAN connection wasn't properly running. It said I have limited or no connectivity. So I tried repairing it, renewing it, disabling and re-enabling it. Nothing worked. In fact I get this error: "An error occurred while renewing interface Local Area Connection : unable to contact your DHCP server. Request has timed out."

I also noticed I have a IP address, if that helps at all:
EDIT: Forgot to mention I also reinstalled the driver for the LAN card.

Before this round of trouble I discovered a problem with one of my graphics cards when they were in SLI with Blue screens and other nasty little things occuring when running Windows; I removed my secondary graphics card from the system to see if I could get a more stable OS, which I did.

I decided to test to see if the other graphics card running on it's own would lead to a stable system, however I was getting zeros on the VGA BIOS bootup screen and other problems before I even reached Windows Vista.

I did sucessfully boot into Vista and enter my password (using the keyboard) and move the mouse around, however once I had logged into my profile Vista began asking me if I wanted to install the drivers for the keyboard and mouse, I selected to update from the Internet and when Vista did not find any drivers for either device it disabled them.
Eventually I got both the keyboard and mouse functioning again by reinstalling Intellipoint pro and the Logitech setpoint.

While using the second graphics card I noted some distortions such as zeros appearing on the VGA BIOS screen during boot up, so I decided to switch out the graphics cards again, again this caused Vista to forget about my keyboard and mouse, I am however able to get onto Vista a combination of a cheap usb mouse I had laying around and the Vista on screen keyboard.

The fix I used previously (reinstalling of Intellipoint and Setpoint) has not works,I have also attempted to manually install the drivers through dev... Read more

Hello.I came home from work today and noticed that my computer was running much slower than normal. I noticed a new shortcut on the desktop and asked my son what it was.He had installed a game called Shaiya earlier in the day. A program called GameGuard was also automatically installed with the game. After looking into both of these subjects it seems that the GameGuard program is problematic for many people and I am now assuming that it is what has made the sudden change in my computers speed. It also seems that uninstalling the programs is difficult and involves manually modifying registry items. I am not comfortable doing this and I am posting this topic to get some professional help. The only other info in this forum I could find on this topic mentioned needing to post a HJT log so that is what I am doing here.Below I have pasted the following txt files per the instructions in the forum intro.

i dunno....maybe you have a file on your computer it doesn't like.....try scanning your computer for viruses......if you have a file that may look like a virus, as several hacks do so, sometimes anti-cheat systems will cut you off.

or you may have an external process it may not like...

i really don't know otherwise...
manually make sure all lthe files are deleted
and reinstall

Ok, so I go into any game with nProtect GameGuard (FlyFF, ijji Gunz) and I get the same two errors when GameGuard tries to Authenticate.

"Program Error
GameMon.des.exe has generated errors and will be closed by
Windows. You will need to restart the program
An error log is being created."

"GameGuard execute error : 114
GameGuard initialization error. Try rebooting and executing the game or close the program considered to cause a collision."

Now of course the first thing I do is restart the program, then reboot and try again, after that didn't work I closed all other applications that I could, when that failed I looked around and found out it could be a virus, used Spy Sweeper and cleared 3 trojans that AVG didn't know existed, and I still get the errors when I try to start the game.

My drivers are up to date, I've turned off my Anti-virus, I've remade accounts, and yet it still doesn't run.

I've played before, so I know the games work, but here are my specs anyways.

hi all the problems i have occur with game gaurd on such games as albatross18,and rakion.

as for both of these games there was a time when i was able to play them, then gradualy i started to get errors and no longer could play.

rakion loads up the nprotect/gameguard then acts like its going to start but i get no screen or anything.then when i try to run it again it says "the game is overlapped,or gamegaurd is already in execution.Please try again after you terminate the game" or this "this is game guard initilization error.please try again after you re-boot or close any other program that may be coliding" well ive checked and the game isnt running, and no processes of the game or gameguard are running,and i also cant find anything that would colide with it.. some people said it might be spyware of some sort,but i scanned with 3 different programs and im clean according to them.

any help is appreciated thank you

ok so you've heard of gunz etc etc and how while launching Gunz.exe it also starts up gameguard.exe anti hacking prevention system created by ijji to well...prevent hackers, now dont say to shut down gamguard cause u cant run gunz without it. Anyways they've jsut recently upgraded gameguard because of some bugs etc, and ever since over 70% of gunz players have been experiencing FPS lag. now heres the link of the gunzfactor forum. its just to give u an overview of the main program, (already linked to the main thread about it) and everyone has already mention that it isn't the CPU of video card its something with the gameguard anti-virus, but maybe you guys might know?


thanks again xD

Hi guys, I recently started playing Trickster Online again and was upset to find out that their version of nProtect GameGuard won't let me use internet browsers while it's running. I was hoping someone would be able to help me out and I hope this problem is fixable. Thanks in advance, and by the way I'm using my laptop.

hope this helps you

its the website for it where you should be able to download the program and update the game files from there (if its anything like battlefield 2 and punkbuster)

I dont play the game nor any games that use it but from what i see thats what I gather

Read the title... enough said. I'm just curious how many people have thought "YES! NO MORE HACKERS IN *insert game here*!" Then, there are still thousands of hackers. The games I play, like Gunz, Gunbound, and Soldier Front are filled with hackers. Even Rakion. GameGuard does absolutely nothing... post your ideas here!

I'm trying to play Trickster Online. It has never worked since I installed it a few weeks ago and their tech support never answered my email. It has this anti-hacking software called nProtect Gameguard. You have to go through its updating process in order to play. The problem is I keep getting error 380 and so it exits. Every guide I find is in bad English (nProtect is Korean) and doens't tell you how to fix it. I'm not using a proxy or anything. Can anyone help me out?

This is a heads up for anyone playing games that run Gameguard, such as Maplestory Mabinogi or Gunbound.
For anyone who read my thread a few days ago, my computer was crashing during gameplay of a few games, Maplestory most notably. The probably was diagnosed as and agreed apon by the responses as a Graphics Card overheat error, which concerned me as it hasn't happened before. I may now have found the problem, to which I would like to inform my fellow gamers.

The problem started when my girlfriend's brand new computer started having the same issue last night out of the blue. I decided to scour the web for possible problems with the game. I found a thread somewhere describing an error with gameguard BSODing when there was a critical error in the program. Doing more homework, I found out that gameguard's error handler is tied right into the kernal process of windows and activated a BSOD instead of crashing just the game. Wondering what could have possibly done that, I decided to check gameguard's website WHEN I remembered: I have other gameguard games.

I uninstalled them all(including maplestory) did a system search for gameguard anything and manually deleted it. Ran CCleaner to get rid of leftover files(probably was unneccesary). Redownloaded Maplestory and ran the program. It's been running(and still is) error free for the last hour and a half(twice as long as I've made it in the last 3 weeks). I was gonna try it on my girlfriend's compute... Read more

As of yesterday any games that have Game Guard do not work. They all give me error message 114.

The games I play with gameguard are Grand Chase and Gunz. I have contacted my ISP, Dell and the game providers via help desk. My ISP and Dell said it was the game, Gunz said it was my computer, I haven't recieved a response from Grand Chase.

Now, I have tried all solutions I have found on the internet. I do not have a firewall. Nothing has changed since the day before yesterday on my computer. It happened over night basically, when my computer wasn't even on.

I do have AVG anti-virus, however that NEVER caused this before. I've been playing this games along side AVG for a long time. I even have AVG disabled when I play, it still doesn't work.
It is really frustrating me, and honestly I am really tempted to throw this computer out my door.

Hi hi.So I play ijji's Gunz: The Duel. I tried playing Exteel (both of which games use Nprotect GameGuard). Exteel's gameguard would always come up with an error message, and as such, I couldn't play the game. So I gave up on it, and went back to Gunz. It seems the Gunz gameguard was overwritten with the Exteel gameguard, as the same error message now occured whenever I tried to play Gunz.So I uninstalled Exteel, reinstalled Gunz, deleted GameGuard, only to find that GameGuard is, in fact, a rootkit, and all that technical stuff is beyond me.So I deleted the GameGuard that installs with Gunz, knowing that upon trying to play the game, it would re-download and reinstall (with the hopes of re-overwriting Exteel's gameguard), but it came up with an error message saying:"GameGuard initialization error. Try rebooting and executing the game or close the program considered to cause a collision."Basically, I want to be able to play Gunz: The Duel again, without formatting my computer.Here are my DSS Logs:Deckard's System Scanner v20071014.68Run by Brian Collins on 2008-04-13 12:18:17Computer is in Normal Mode.---------------------------------------------------------------------------------- System Restore --------------------------------------------------------------Successfully created a Deckard's System Scanner Restore Point.-- Last 5 Restore Point(s) --75: 2008-04-13 04:18:32 UTC - RP852 - Deckard's System Scanner Restore Point74: 2008-04-12 08:23:15 UTC - RP851 - Syst...

I am new here and I have a problem. I have recently installed Cabal Online and after playing it I noticed something was not right. After trying to find a solution I have decided to uninstall the game and forget about it but then I found out on the internet that GameGuard, which this game uses, is a rootkit and thus a threat to my and my computer's security. I read you have to manually remove it from the computer so I followed some instructions. I deleted the GameGuard folder after uninstalling the game and I also found npptnt2.dll and nppt9x.vxd files but I can't find the place in registry all those people on the internet mentioned. Is it possible that there is nothing left of GameGuard? How big a threat is GameGuard really? Can you please help or give information or something? You would make a guy's life easyer

P.S. I believe that when I found this site & forum I found a goldmine. I bet there is a lot of good information here

I am sick and tired of this worthless security software. I used to play Mabinogi, a Korean MMO from Nexon, and of course they use that infernal GameGuard BS. Fool that I was, I tolerated its presence since I liked the game more than most. Well, trust me, I paid for it. Who knows how much it has altered the registry.

Worse, it has disabled my keyboard! I use Vista and a Logitech Wave Keyboard. Once in a while, Mabinogi fails to load up and I see a white screen instead of the title. My mouse works but my keyboard is disabled and I have to do a hard reboot. Upon reboot, it still doesn't work. I switch the USB to another port... voila, it works. But it will never work for that previous port again!

I didn't suspect anything until it happened a second time. Now I have two ports on my PC that refuse to work with my keyboard. Any other device works fine, just not the keyboard. This is BS of the highest degree.

I can only guess that it has modified my registry in some way, but I don't even know where to begin. Can anyone help me recover the use of my two USB ports for the keyboard?

A:GameGuard killing my keyboard and USB

I've since uninstalled Mabinogi, deleted the GameGuard folder, deleted the two hidden files it inserted into my system folder and deleted a registry key to no avail. Someone has suggested that GameGuard is using an "input hook", which I've never heard of.

A couple of weeks ago, I installed wolfteam on my computer, started playing and when I finish playing and get back to the desktop, I cannot open any programs anymore, cannot open my computer or anything. When I double click icons, nothing happens.

I thought it was the game, so I uninstalled and reinstalled with the same problem.

Yesterday, I downloaded 2 new games, Huxley and Pandora saga, both games and wolfteam all come with gameguard. And all these games now do the same thing when I close them. So I guess the problem was not with wolfteam, but rather with gameguard, maybe I'm just jumping to conclusions...

I have over 50 games installed on my computer, online and single player games, and the only 3 games that use gameguard give me this problem.

I did not try uninstalling gameguard and reinstalling because im not sure if I would have to redownload and reinstall the whole games by doing that, Huxley is 4GB, I do not want to redownload if not necessary.

So to repeat myself, the problem is that I cannot open any programs, or windows or do anything anymore on my computer after I close the games. My desktop is there, everything is normal, I can open the start menu, but that's about it.

I tried to attach my Dxdiag file, but it wouldn't let me, so let me know what info you need on my computer other than what I will give...

So here's this game Ran Online and I have Windows 8 Pro 32-bit.

I always get this error saying that there are programs that conflict with gameguard. I already allowed the game and the gameguard.des and gamemon.des in windows defender and firewall. And I also allowed the entire drive.

So any idea what would these programs be that conflict with game guard?

Thanks in advance.

A:Windows 8 Gameguard Error

I am assuming Game Guard is anti-cheat software for the game just like S4 League's xtrap.

It is dangerous to allow the whole drive and I recommend you undo that. The bad news you can't do anything until they update Game Guard to work with Windows 8

Similar case happen with xtrap and within a month they updated to allow Windows 8.

I am assuming and I don't know Game Guard is thinking your cheating because it only checks the approve OS in its definitions list and windows 8 is not on it.

You can probably sent a email to the company or post on their forums or send a ticket to get them to make a small update to add Windows 8 as a approve OS

I think the actual game runs fine if it ran in Windows 7 just the anti-cheat software needs a update.

The computer can only "see" that the electronic interface is OK. It cannot "see" if the laser is still working, as that lies beyond the interface.

The acid test is if the drive reads and writes, at times it is easier to try swapping out the drive to another PC to eliminate a software or motherboard issue.

Firsty i'll appologise for this possible being in the wrong section but as i've got no idea what's wrong i'll start with the operating system.

After being away on holiday i return and ran SpyBot to see if my brother's downloading has put anything unwanted on my computer. It flagged up the usual things so they were removed. However it also started to pop up asking about allowing or denying changes to the registry.

I then started to get an error that meant double clicking on icons did nothing and a terminal error which was found in the microsoft debuger. I've no idea which one though as i ran the fix and thought nothing of it. It then prompted to run a malware sweep which took ages and flagged up 7 malicious files.

I am running windows 7 and my cd rom is not working properly. It was reinstalled which seemed to help a LITTLE, but sometimes you have to incert a cd 7 or eight times before it will read it. I can see that there is a cd inserted (when I go to my computer I can see the D drive). Just doesn't read them all the time. I have a Dell with a vertical cd drive. When I view it through the control panel it says my driver is up to date.

Since I have had windows 8 introduced in our office I have found on my laptop the ~ key (one at the upper left corner before 1) not working properly. I have to long press it (for around 1-2 seconds) to provide ~~~~ or ```` before the key is released. First I thought might be a physical problem with the key, but similar is the behavior found on the on screen keyboard and I have to long click that too.

Thus, I am unable to get a ` or ~ (i.e. with the shift) easily.

Please see if any of you experts could help me detect and resolve this annoying error.

I'm assuming this is the correct forum.

My Alt+Tab stopped working suddenly, while I was writing something in MS Word and switching between windows.

As in, the "switching between windows" function stopped working. Instead the windows's menu with "File - Edit - ..." is just highlighting, as if I was just pressing "Alt" only. However, once in a blue moon it does manage to switch between windows, however it does so between random windows and I don'y see the small dialogue at the center of the screen with windows thumbnails.

The Alt and Tab keys seem to be working fine on their own.
However, the AltGr+Tab appears to be working fine, but also not always.
The "Alt+XXXX" option to type in special symbols while holding Alt key is also not working.

I tried plugging in a different keyboard and it works fine.
I tried searching for a solution on other forums, and their answers (mainly, to re-enable Win-key hotkeys in registry) don't help me.
I tried restoring from a recent system restore point (from 4 days ago).
I tried repairing system files (with "sfc /scannow").
I even tried removing and then reinstalling the keyboard drivers.

I have Windows 7 SP1 x64 Ultimate, if this is important. The keyboard is a relatively old PS/2 keyboard.

Nothing seems to help.

A:Alt+Tab not working properly

It looks like a hardware fault if a different keyboard works perfectly.

You could try removing the Tab key and cleaning underneath it :-

If that doesn't help then I think you will have to use a different keyboard.

A:New RAM not working properly

Some MoBos are fussy about memory speeds. For a few MoBos, if the modules are of different speeds, it won't read them or only the slower one. Other MoBos can handle ram mods of different speeds. Also, and yes this is strange, there is the rare MoBo in which the slots do not address the same size of memory. I had one computer that one slot could hold 1GB max and the other 512MB. Yes, weird but true. I only encountered that once though.

Check the speeds of the ram modules. If they are different check the hardware manual to see if the MoBo needs them to the same.

I have a few problems, and I am not sure if they have a solution that won't need a fresh install of Win XP.

First of all every time I start my laptop the language changes from US to Us International. So what happens? Instead of putting ' or ^ or ` or ~ or "" I get them always doubled like '' or ^^ or `` or ~~ or "" whenever I try to write something (be it Word, a box in my browser or anything else). I always set it to US when I reload my system but after shutting down, it restarts in US International, which is very annoying.

update: it looks like it''s not working anymore if I change from US to US International. Still doing it !

Another problem that I noticed was that when I have a Yahoo Messenger window opened, I cannot switch to ANYTHING else via Alt+Tab.

And the last thing, that sometimes is the worse and most annoying is that Alt+Tab freezes my Windows until I press Ctrl+Alt+Del and Task Manager opens.

Hope someone here can give me an answer soon because I am going crazy :( If needed I can provide you guys with a HJT log.

hi everyone.

lately i noticed problems while playing games. after a few minutes my frames would drop MAJORLY! im talking from around 100 down to 2 and 3 frames a second! :O so ive been looking into possible problems and along the way i found cpu-z, the program which gives you your computer stats etc. and i found that my RAM frequency is 250.0 Mhz with a max bandwidth of 266 Mhz.

i am puzzled by this because i have 1024mb DDR2 533 :$

i run a -
AMD Athlon 64 X2 3600+
Asus M2V-TVM
1024 DDR2 533
512 ATI Radeon X1600

can anyone help or at least shed some light on this? i looked in my bios for an option to change the frequency but came up with nothing.


A:RAM not working properly :O

Yes. You see with DDR2 this is normal. DDR2 means dual data rate 2. Since your 533mhz is "dual data 2" it's split into 2 lanes of frequency. It's like a 2 lane highway. You've got data running twice at the same time. This gives you good performance because you have 2 streams of data working for you, instead of one. But it is at the cost of dividing the speed of your ram by 2. I don't know why you are getting only 250mhz instead of 266mhz. As far as your frame rate dropping that massively, that's a different situation. Does this only happen occasionally when the game is not hot and heavy but during periods of loading or other such stuff. If your frames went down to 2 or 3 per sec. during play, you would see a MAJOR change in the 'moving picture'.

Hi I'm not sure if this should be posted in the games section, but it seems more like a virus is causing an issue in this case.

When I run Iris online, a new mmorpg which uses gameguard hack protection, nothing else but the game can connect to the internet. Prior to gameguard loading I can use either browser (IE or firefox) and they work absolutely fine.

However this all stops after I load the game, yet I can still connect to the game and it runs, but nothing else can connect to the internet despite being able to ping websites and that works and the internet says it is connected but never loads a page.

One or two times however I could run the browser and load sites fine whilst playing Iris and gameguard was running then too, but these times are rare and often when i close the game, the browsers stop working.

This only happens on this one game using gameguard, other times in the past playing other mmos with the same hack protection it worked fine. A simple way to fix this would be to stop playing the game, but it's a really fun game! Also another reason why I'm concerned and want to get to the bottom of this issue is no one else i spoke to on the game has this problem so it must be something wrong with my computer which I would like to fix.

Hey guys,

I am running XP on a Compact Presario SR1910NX and have been trouble shooting some basic issues.

I had recently cleaned my system of viruses with help from techguy, however the keyboard and mouse started acting up, by means they would not work either at boot up or after the computer took a nap due to non use.

I bought a new mouse and that did the trick, however, the keyboard is another issue.

I can use it only when in safe mode, which is how I am accessing this forum. Other than that, once the computer is turned on, all the lights on the keyboard light up, stay lit and the keys do not function.

I have tried different keyboards, but all have the same issue.

I am assuming it has something to do the the computer accessing the port for the keyboard.

I have also tried to do a system restore back to the point that the system was working and was clear of issues, but no matter what date I choose, I get an error message stating the computer can not restore the system, no other details as to why.

I have attached a copy of the current hijack this log to see if I missed any viruses or what not.

Last week I bought new Asus M4A78-HTPC/RC motherboard, because my old one stopped working. I installed the new one into computer but it isn't working as it is supposed to. I have problems with RAM. I own 4 * 2GB SAMSUNG DDR2 SDRAM M378T5663QZ3-CF7 memory modules.

When I install modules into A1, B1 and B2 socket everything works fine, but when I insert the fourth one into A2 socket Windows doesn't want to boot - I get BSOD, sometimes it says MEMORY MANAGEMENT problem and sometimes it doesn't show up nothing(unhandled exception).

I also tested memory using Memtest86+ bootable USB and with all four modules installed, it shows errors, however when there are only three(A2 module empty) it shows as if there is everything OK.

Then I tested what happens if there is only one memory module inserted into RAM sockets and I inserted it into A2 socket (the one that supposedly doesn't work) then I ran Memtest86+ and much to my surprise it worked. It even booted into Windows.

Oh, yes and one more thing. BIOS detects all memory modules (even when there are all four inserted) and shows correct RAM size.

Now I don't know what the problem is, I tested all the memory modules and they are fine so there must be something wrong with motherboard. Does anyone know what could it be and how to repair it?

When you said you refilled it, do you mean you reused the old cartridge by refilling it or did you install a new one? If you reused the old one, try cleaning the cartridge's ink end with alcohol.

My web pages arent scrolling properly and its also happening when i am scrolling through messages in outlook express.. Almost like a kind of wave effect? The scroll bar on the right hand side is hardly visible. Its almost like the webpage is too big for the screen. There is a tick in the box where it says smooth scrolling and its no good changing the percentage on the bottom right of the screen. I would be grateful for any help. Thanks in advance...linda

A:Web pages not working properly


Is this happening in ALL Windows applications or just Outlook Express? I ask because it sounds like you've enable either Accessibility features under the Control Panel or possibly some extended features of your video hardware's drivers.

Have you recently installed or changed ANYTHING on your PC prior to this problem occuring?

This is my first time on this site, and I am a relative beginner -- SA is not my trade.

I have Qwest DSL with an Actiontec GT701 modem and a Netgear MR814v3 router. I have them wired according to instructions, have set up and restarted multiple times in the correct order.

On my laptop computer I am able to connect t o the wireless with an excellent connection, however, when I launch a browser I can't actually do anything -- nor can I connect to VPN, etc. In other words, I get a connection, but I can't do anything with it.

At one point I rewired things and was able to use the laptop on the wireless connection, but then my desktop that is hard wired to the ethernet no longer works.

Has anyone had this experience? Do you have any clues or suggestions for where I can look for help?

I have been using a Dell XPS(L502x) laptop since 4 years. Till recently my speakers have been working well. But they started giving a Grrr..... noice whenever I listen to music or see movies from past few weeks. I usually use both speakers and headphones to listen. What is the reason for this? Is this because I use headphones more than the speakers??
Awaiting a response,
Thank you.

A:The speakers are not working properly

Hello. Is the noise only through the speakers, but the audio through headphones  is still clear? If so, it could be that the speakers are going bad --either the stereo speakers or the woofer. Speakers in the XPS L502x seem to fail more frequently than in other models.

I have noticed that my computer has not been working properly ever since I installed Firefox 4. The computer does not start up properly and i must do an emergency shutdown on it a couple times before it does work properly. Here is a link to another thread that I had started about this problem so there is no overlap. Please help so that I dont have to deal with this anymore.

A:computer not working properly

You should have continued your previous thread. Anyways, have your tried re-installing firefox? Is the computer run slow if firefox is not installed? Have you scanned for infections again?

Hey everyone,

Last week i bought a new Rig 500 gaming headset from EB Games. I went home and read the quick start guide which basically said "If you are using this for a PC, plug it in and your all good to go." So that's what i did, i plugged the jack into the headphones port on the front of my PC (note: there is only one jack). I found that the sound was amazing but when i tried to test the mic on skype it did not work (note: the mic is part of the headset). So, i unplugged the jack and put it into the mic port on the front of my PC. Now the mic did work but the headset sound did not.

So in conclusion only the mic or the headset sound will work at one time instead of both at the one time.

Please help and thanks for reading,


A:Rig 500 headset and mic not working properly?

I did a quick search on your headset and from what I can tell there should be a Y split cable included in the box. This cable would split the mic and speakers into two plugs so you could put one in the mic & front speaker ports. From a video unboxing I saw, it seems the cable is located at the button in some cardboard. Where the warranty card and other papers are located.
