Q: This is probably a simple problem to solve concerning video

Hey, i am having a problem loading specific videos, and i cant seem to figure out which player it is that won't load so therefore i can't even begin to solve the problem. Here is the info i have including links to specific videos:

When i click on the video it takes me to the page and it shows a big square with an Icon in the corner of a Square,Circle, and Triangle.
Here is a Link to a Video that i cannot play:

I have downloaded the latest version of Macromedia Flash Player, I have Windows Media Player 10, and I just downloaded the newest version of Quicktime, I have the Divx codec, im running Windows XP Pro if that helps at all. I did put in my system specs if you know how to check them out, I don't know how to do that since this is my first time here.

Anyway this is really annoying since it happens on alot of sites when im trying to watch funny videos that people tell me to watch. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Preferred Solution: This is probably a simple problem to solve concerning video

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

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

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

Here's the situation: I was about to back up my files by transferring them to an external hard drive and was in Documents for that purpose, when I did something that triggered a 'spinning circle' (called a Throbber I believe). I waited for a few minutes but the throbber continued to be there, and the computer continued to do whatever it was doing, so I closed the Windows File Explorer, hoping to start fresh without a throbber. But when I opened the new Windows Explorer the spinning circle was still there and instead of being there for a few seconds--as the green line went left to right across the top and then presenting Documents, Downloads, Music, Videos, etc. when the green line completed its journey, with the spinning circle disappearing as it always does at that point-- the throbber remained, as the green line went 99% of the way across and then stopped.

My initial reaction was to give it as much time as it needed, especially since the words 'This folder is empty' were there, which is always the case when I first open the Windows Explorer for the day, but 'This folder is empty' normally disappears after a few seconds along with the spinning circle, but this time, because it was not completing the process for some reason, the spinning circle remained. I decided to give it more time, but now 'giving it more time' is obviously not enough since that was 20 hours ago! The green line is still there, 99% of the way to complet... Read more

ok i was stupid enough to use Cox communication cd and now that cd has taken over my computer, i went in to add and remove programs and took it off however cox is still lurking in my computer for example they changed my internet explorer instead of an E i get cox and they just modifed some of my programs to make it thier isnt that quaint any suggestions on removing those stupid things
 

A:another simple problem i cant seem to solve

My guess is most likely just have "Cox" branding of IE but it's still IE. Check here in the registry and see what you find.

Start Regedit and navigate to

HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Toolbar

Delete the keys for "BrandBitmap" and "SmBrandBitmap"

Then restart Internet Explorer for the change to take effect.

Hello fellow!

I am new to these forums, and have decided to give them a question of my own.

I have a network of PCs of 100+ computers, and have a single file that I need to place on every computer. They all have a single folder shared, which is named exactly the same as the next, so my question is this:

Is there a command that I could use to copy a file from my computer to the folder on each of the Computers on my network, without having to type the command 100+ times?

In a simple way, I am asking this -- Is it possible to do this:

copy "c:\something.bat" "\\*\c:\shared folder\something.bat"

I am sure that we have all had a bit of command line experience, so this command should be pretty easy to understand.

Hello! in dire need of some tech support. So here's the background... I was given a Toshiba Satellite A135 running on Windows 7. I got a virus and tried to DIY reformat. I DO NOT HAVE THE ORIGINAL WINDOW 7 CD and was only given a "burnt copy of windows 7" by a friend.. So i searched online, especially utube, searching for how to reformat WITHOUT a cd and decided to follow what this guy said ()... The only FILES i backed up were my movies, music, word docs, and pdf's. So anything "driver" related i didn't back up.

i did the whole f8 thing WITH my friends burnt cd inserted (i dont know if that makes a difference). If you view the utube video, i got to around 2:10 and deleted EVERYTHING. First of all there were 3 disk partion options to select instead of just one like in the video. So i deleted all three because i assumed all 3 were infected. Either way it did not let me progress and i forgot what it said, but it gave me an error window stating something about a missing screen image.

So i restarted the whole thing and just like at 1:48 my laptop gave me the option to choose the OS i'd like to install. From a loooooooong list i just chose the first which is windows 7 Homebasic Activated. I click next, accept the license terms and just like in the utube video at 2:07 i choose custom (advanced).

I posted before about games not filling my monitor screen after reinstalling Windows 7 when they did before. HP 2310m monitor with GeForce 9100 integrated video on HP p6310f pc. Nothing has worked to solve it so was wondering if I got a dedicated video card it would solve the problem? I am looking at a GIGABYTE GV-R645D3-512I Radeon HD 6450 512MB 64-bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready Low Profile Ready Video Card. Does anyone know if it could get my games to display full screen again? This is really baffling since I had full screen before with just changing resolution....worked on all games!

A:dedicated video card solve problem?

Hello j54ams,

I reviewed your pervious posting on the problem with the HP 2310 monitor. I see you never tried connecting a second pc to the monitor to check to see if the problem is with the monitor. If I were you I try that before buying a dedicated video card to correct the display problem. Just my two cents. Hope it helps.

Ok, here it is...


Symptoms:

-Computer monitor display is corrupt at ALL times (even when the first images of the WinXP logo pops up on it before I tell it to boot in Safe mode) when normally booted up

-When booted up in safe mode, the monitor display is no longer corrupt.



More Facts:

-I booted up in safe mode and uninstalled my video card. I then rebooted in normal mode. This did not resolve the problem. When I booted up normally, the problem reoccurred.

-There is no evidence to indicate that this is a problem with my hard drive (the monitor display is corrupt at times, but when booted in safe mode there is no corruption)

-My monitor works fine when connected to another PC

-After a normal boot, my monitor immediately goes into a "Auto Power Save Mode" which leads me to believe that the signal is not being properly sent from my computer to my monitor.

The Question:

If it's not my monitor, video card or hard drive, what could it be? I'm really clueless as to what else would cause this.

Safe mode works fine.

I restored my computer to an earlier state, with no effect on the problem.

Any ideas?

Hi I'm kinda new with forums but willing to try and help

I have some little, short MPGs and AVIs that are sent to me by e-mail and some I made myself that I like to play from time to time. Problem is that sometimes they play fine and sometimes the same ones will freeze the video at some point but continue the sound. Sometimes I can restart the computer and it will play the video fine; but, at some point, the freezing will recurr and continue until I restart the machine.

The video cards I have are older ones that support DirectX 7 or lower. My question is whether anyone thinks a video card that supports a later version of DirectX (maybe 9) might have any effect on the problem.

Hi!

I have until Feb 28/tomorrow to return this laptop for my money back so I'd be grateful for timely advice

The laptop is an Asus Q550 LF and I really like it otherwise so I hope it gets it's act together. I am not downloading torrents/p2p etc and running plenty of security ( Malwarebytes, CC Cleaner, McAffee ). My internet is 9mbs shared with another laptop an Ipod touch and a smart phone.

Here's the specs: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834232147

Today the sound started cutting out randomly. Seems random to me at least. When it does this, I check the mixer and it registers no sound on the vertical adjuster. Simultaneously, when I try to play youtube videos they will start ( or start and restart) and then stop, showing an error message. Sometimes video works but no sound. For a minute I was told I had no internet connection. And then I leave it alone for a while, try again, and voila, the sound has returned. Ech! What could be causing this?

Because there is such a time crunch on evaluating this machine I have asked this in Windows8 as well. Hopefully that is ok with Tech Guy. Thanks so much anyone that might have troubleshooting suggestions!

So because of what's going on with my computer in this thread I think I might possibly be needing a new video card.

I don't really use my computer for gaming other than like...the Harry Potter games, basic Windows games, and occasional forays into RO and a couple other MMORPG's. And really, if the card I get can't even support those I don't really care anyway.

My budget is cheap as possible. Preferably under $50 and all I really want is a card that'll last awhile and be nice and simple. I REALLY don't care about awesome graphics or anything.

I don't really understand the stuff about the power supply, but it's a Shuttle XPC PSU Upgrade. And for DC Output Voltage it says +12VCD over 16A And +5VSB over 2A.

Motherboard: Shuttle FS51
Graphic Interface: I'm afraid I don't know what that means
Memory: DDR 512GB and the channels thing is blank

I'm trying to get a bunch of AVI videos onto my blackberry storm. directly copying them works, but the video is jerky and stuttering. I tried using different software to convert it, but no dice.
Mplay wouldn't even read the videos
RoxioMM, what is included with Blackberry Dsktop Manager, converts to a format which the storm refuses even to play
WMP sync and handbrake with suppossed "good" settings, has perfect audio but no picture
since the videos already mostly work, I believe all I have to do is downscale them so that the blackberry can play them easier according to:
Video Scale Size:
If your source is 4:3 use 480x360
If your source is 16:9 use 480x270
Use 1:1 Aspect ratio for both.
Frame/Sec: 25
Video Bitrate: 1248kbps

Audio:
Audio Bitrate: 64kbps
Sampling Freq: 44100

A:Solved: Two simple video card question

From the card compatabilty chart,it looks like you have to use
2 cards in the same series for crossfire.
Like a 4800 series with a 4800 series.
I would guess they have to have the same base graphics processor
for it to work properly.

You can use a single nvidia graphics card on a crossfire motherboard.
Just the one card by itself.

I’m working with the new MPlayer2.exe under windows in slave mode. I really need a solution for this seeking problem in MPlayer2, when seeking in MPEG1 program stream files.

I want to do a precise seek in a MPEG1 program stream files(m2v video with mp2 audio), using the new MPlayer2.exe precise seek command, seek <value> [type] [hr-seek].

The way I used the command is,
seek <value> [type] [hr-seek]
type = 2 is a seek to an absolute position of <value> seconds.
hr-seek = 1 means force precise seek if possible.
In my C code I gave the command with the <value> for the time position as a double, calculated for the required frame. ("seek %f 2 1", fTime).
Eg- ‘seek 4.28 2 1’

This works for MPEG2 program stream files(m2v video with mp2 audio), and other types like .AVI.
But for MPEG1 program stream files it jumps only to the key frames and not to the exact frame as expected.

I have uploaded MPEG1 program stream sample files at,
http://uploading.com/files/46f51fcc/Mpeg1_mid.mpg/
http://uploading.com/files/aeda943b/Mpeg1_small.mpg/

specifying --demuxer=lavf the libavformat demuxer is successfully
opened, but it then fails to do time-based seeking properly with this
file (the only position it successfully seeks to is the beginning).”

I need a simple program where I can edit and then splice video clips. Maybe also convert different formats too. Don't know the full scope of it yet. Just know there are digital standard video clips that will play on a computer, most probably a few minutes long at the most. Haven't seen any of them yet. Guess each is in its own lil file.

I need to be able to edit them, splice them together in one long video in probably the same format. Probably then put it on a CD-ROM. Need the program to be a freebie. Only planning on doing this once.

Never done this before. Maybe something that can also do a text subtitle at the bottom. Or put text pages in between clips to explain what is coming next. Something free and easy to learn. Maybe more like a small utility, not some huge program that does everything. Don't know if any of these have sound or not. I guess they want it in a big hurry. I got nominated for the job.

A digital camera is about my experience with this sort of thing. Help.........

Hello Folks.
First I appreciate any help with this problem.

I worked on my brothers computer who had a myriad of spyware and redirecters.
I ran HiJackthis - deleted what I saw to be suspects, ran S&D and adaware and deleted all that they found.
Computer is much better - however there is one annoying problem I cannot seem to figure out - "svchost.exe" upon bootup will run at 99-100%, and the box will take at least 5 minutes to complete boot-up unless you kill the process - then everything is fine...however about every 10 minutes or so it will re-fire and run at that high usage again. I have a feeling it is tied with his Symantec (which I hate)
Of course I see that svchost.exe is in the HiJackthis - however since it is a valid process, will deleting it hurt?

AUUGH!

Hello hiamer and welcome to Seven Forums.

Try running a System File Checker scan from an elevated command prompt (Option Two, this tutorial.)

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

If any problems are found run the scan three times rebooting after each scan. Let us know if it helps.

Also, what antivirus are you running?

Today when I was running my computer and playing a game it shut down with creating a weird noise. So I start the computer again and it shows a screen where it says "CPU was shut down due to over heating so it does not effect any components" So I downloaded SpeedFan to see my CPU temp It was 70 C I was like thats too much so I shut it down to see if everything is good. Then I opened my CPU and the fan and the heat sink was very dirty. So I take out the fan anf the heatsink and clean them. I also noticed that there isnt much thermal paste on the processor. But whatever I cleaned the heatsink and the fan then put them back. Then I run the computer and even tho the temperature is a lot low as it is 52 C rite now. I still think the heat is a bit too much. As last time I checked when its normal its around 38-43 C. Im wondering now that if I re-apply the thermal paste will it be back to normal or wat is the reason that the heat isn't normal? Any suggestions are appreciated.

More info:
proccesor: Intel Pentium D 2.8 Gh

Thank you

A:How to solve this problem----->

You need to obtain some thermal paste, very high heat conductive, as that makes the seal
between heatsink and cpu dissipate the heat.

regards by credendo_vid3s
 

A:anyone, PLease help me to solve my problem?

It would help a lot to see the actual data.
But you could try this, create a select query and then click View>Totals.
The totals wizard will make all the columns "Total field" "Group BY".
Change the Date from "Group By" to "Max".

I would advise that you post Access/Excel Questions on the "Business Applications" Forum as you will get more responses there.

My problem started earlier this week when OE stopped sending email for me. (I can receive email with no problem and I have checked the settings and can find no problem.) While it appears to send messages it does not. Messages go through the outbox and into the sent items folder where they seem to have picked up some extra stuff. When I go to properties>message source in the sent items folder a two character test message will now be a 30kb message with over 2,000 random characters. I have been trying to send messages from OE (adelphia.net) to my gmail account. Each time I log into my Gmail account it tells me that my browsers cache is full. I have cleared the cache many times now, and have deleted all of my temp folders and everything I can find to delete... and it keep's happening. I have updated and run McAfee virusscan, AdAware, and Spybot S&D. I have another computer on this network with the same adelphia email in OE and it works just fine on that computer.
I am at a complete loss... I need my email to work.

I am running Windows XP and using OE6, my mail server is adelphia.net. If you need more info ask...

Here is a current HJT log. Can you please help me?
