Laptop locks up while playing fullscreen, now movies as well.

Q: Laptop locks up while playing fullscreen, now movies as well.

My laptop is a IBM Thinkpad T60(Yeah, ancient, but it works) with with an intel T2500 dual core clocked at 2GHz, 2 GB of RAM and an ATI x1400 mobility. I got it new (it was bought but never used by the company I work for) recently, and immediately installed some games onto it to see what exactly it could do. After maybe 6-10 minutes depending on the game the laptop freezes, there's no on screen artifacts, just a frozen screen and a loop of whatever sound was playing last, which forces me to do a hard reset.
This is all fine and dandy, I can live without playing games on my laptop, so I left it alone. Until yesterday in which it did the same thing while watching a movie. I read through the first 3 pages of google and searched through the TSG forums, but I found nothing that fixed my problem.
Hope someone can help with this, I'd be satisfied with running low end games and movies. I'm just worried this is going to get worse.
Thanks.

Preferred Solution: Laptop locks up while playing fullscreen, now movies as well.

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.)

I hooked my laptop up to my Plasma TV via S-video and for the sound, RCA to headphone jack. It works fairly well, but with two issues:

1) The video input is bigger than the TV screen. To explain, when I see my desktop on the TV screen and I move the cursor to the far edges of the screen, the screen scrolls a little bit. The movies play, but they are cropped on the sides. Where or how can I adjust this to make the input from the computer fit the TV screen?

2) The sound is muffled. I don't have a receiver hooked up yet and I tinkered with the sound adjustments in the movie player and on the laptop, but I can't figure out how to make it better. Any ideas?

Thanks, please post your thoughts on these issues.

Installing Windows 7 Service Pack 1
1. Visit the PC manufacturer's website and update ALL drivers. DO NOT use Windows Update or the "Update drivers" function of Device Manager.
2. Check Device Manager for any unknown/disabled devices - if there are unknown/disabled devices, fix them with the latest drivers from the device manufacturer's website (not the PC Manufacturer)
3. Visit Windows Update and get all updates (may take repeated visits)
4. Visit Windows Update and get Service Pack 1 (usually under Important Updates). Read these notes for installing SP1: Steps to follow before you install Windows 7 SP1 and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 from the Microsoft Download Center
5. Visit Windows Update and get any other available updates. May take repeated visits, but keep it up until you get several "Windows is updated" results.
If you're having difficulties with installing a Service Pack, please use the SURTool from this link: What is the System Update Readiness Tool?
Also, check out this troubleshooting link from Microsoft: Troubleshoot problems installing Service Pack 1 (SP1) for Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2

I have had limited success in installing updates/Service Packs when using a "clean boot". I suspect that I'm just bypassing the problem - and that it can come back to bite me in the butt later on.

Hello,

Start on some hardware tests, namely the three Prime95 tests and Memtest86.

If you have another graphics card you can try out, that would also be a good idea.

Hi, im having this problem for a while now and cant seem to find the reason.

All games, except League of Legends, get a bsod after more or less 15 or 20 minutes of running. When i change them to a windowed mode all is fine. I remember a while ago (before this problem started) the games minimize all the time when in fullscreen without there being any popup or anything that could cause it. I really dont remember what i did, aside that i downloaded Razer game Booster (not a very good program) which ended that particular problem.

I already tried deleting the drivers from Catalyst Control Center, but the problem persist.

I have all my System specs filled by the program of this site, do you need me to copy them here? Anything else i should provide you with?

Thanks in advance!!!

Hello parzon.

A search revealed that you are using nForce as the chipset driver, and that includes nvmf6264.sys as the network controller driver. You need to try to update nForce, as it contains not only the network controller, but also storage controller and a lot of other vital drivers.

Okay so I'm pretty noob at this stuff I feel but this is the rundown of issues plus what i have done so far and the things i have to present my case to you.
I am mainly affected by MEMORY_MANAGEMENT BSOD, I have been interrupted by PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA BSOD as well but only once or twice. The memory management ones seem to happen very frequently and when I play certain games more than others. I will say for what its worth (which may be nothing) that League of Legends the game I play most frequently (hundreds upon hundreds of hours) has NEVER ONCE bsod'd on me or inexplicably CTD while some of the games that BSOD (after even just an hour) will also CTD. So wanting to solve this issue Ive used CCleaner, Defragmented my computer, used memtest86 to make sure my RAM is stable and it is. The next thing i figured to do is run sfc.exe which in fact found corrupted files in my system32 that it was unable to repair because the parent file was also corrupted. I have NO IDEA how to fix these .MUI and .DLL files in the system 32 and I am attaching my CBS log with the logs that the sevenforum program made up so you can see as well. So my main question first would be do these corrupted files affect the BSOD I am getting and even if not how do I fix them. And secondly how to fix the BSOD themselves if those corrupted files are not the issue. Please ask me for any other information you might need, I have never posted for help on a cpu forum and may need some direction on how to find c... Read more

Hello,

I've experienced two BSOD on my new gaming rig. The first was several days ago while exiting from a full screen Youtube video. The second happened moments ago while playing Rome II Total War. I have a hunch that it may be related to running MSI Afterburner, as the BSOD crashes started after I started using it instead of Asus GPU tweak.

Any help would be greatly appreciated

joshykins, the file you uploaded doesn't contain any dump files.
Make sure windows is properly configured to generate them by following this tutorial:
Dump Files - Configure Windows to Create on BSOD
Other than that MSI-Afterburner is well known for causing bugchecks on Windows 7, regardless of the fact
that diagnosing an overclocked machine is useless being that running a part out of spec will
cause all sorts of misleading errors to spew out.
Please revert all overclocked components back to stock speed and remove MSI-Afterburner.

Side note;
Your PC is logging a lot of heat related events i would look into that as well.

Hey guys.

I've got this problem here: Whenever I play a youtube video in fullscreen, there's a good chance my internet connection will just stop, and I have to restart to fix it.

Some info:
- It happens only with Chrome, not with IE or Firefox.
- It happens on any WiFi and LAN network I've used, since it started a month or two ago.
- It doesn't happen in other websites, just youtube. It runs fine if it's an embedded youtube video in another website.
- I've scanned for malware.
- There's no problem if I'm watching videos not in fullscreen
- I've tried changing the setting in youtube to automatically change the resolution based on player's size. I've tried it also on different resolutions, but if it's fullscreen, the problem can occur with any resolution.
- I tried to switch to HTML5 in youtube's settings but it didn't help.
- I tried stopping the antivirus and firewall, but the problem still occurs.
- I tried clearing the cookies and cache.
- I tried reinstalling Chrome even with a cleaning program; no success (It's the latest version – 21.0.1180.89 m)
- It happens on different Chrome/youtube accounts.
- It happens in incognito mode (with all extensions off)

Could you help me out here? It's very annoying to have to use another browser just for watching some videos.

Hi,

I have a samsung laptop running windows xp sp3. My laptop has intel HD graphics on board.
I have direct x 9.0c installed on my laptop and i have the latest version of winamp ver 5.622 installed on my laptop. I have some videos downloaded from youtube in .FLV format. When i play these videos in fullscreen mode in winamp, i don't see the on-screen controls. This happens with .FLV files only.

Right clicking the video while its playing reveals the adobe flash player video menu which led me to the conclusion that winamp is using adobe flash player to run .FLV files instead of its own codecs as i also have adobe flash player installed on my machine.

Also, when i play the videos, i see the xvid logo(xvid is installed on my machine) in the system tray, which further confuses me about the codecs that are being used to play the videos.

Please help..........
 

A:No on-screen controls in fullscreen mode in winamp while playing .FLV files

Thanks for your post killeramy, i have already tried updating directx and i now have directx 9.0c. Have tried reinstalling winamp but it hasn't helped.

OSD works for other files but not for .FLV. My doubt is about winamp using adobe flash player and not its own decoder and that may be the culprit.

I have intel HD graphics on board on my laptop.

Hi robin3

Maybe he was using some cracked or third party codec pack bundled with spyware/adware. Removing the spyware may prevent it from working.

Uninstall all third party codec packs using add/remove programs then install the K-lite codec pack (standard version, install ffdshow).

If he still can't play the movies then use media player classic (file => properties => details) or vlc (ctrl+i => details) to identify the required codec.

When i try to play them a msg comes up ' the selected file has an extension (.mov) that the player does not recognise, do you want the player to try to play anyway?
I click yes then it comes up 'the player cannot support the file type or the codec that was used to compress the file.'
I am trying to make an edited movie for my wife for mothers day and am running out of time. Thanks for the help. Sean

Ever since I installed the Matroska pack, my .AVI files won't play on any of my programs (JetAudio, Windows Media Player, Winamp..etc). My AVI files seem to only work on VideoLAN.. which I rarely use.

Someone please help with this problem

Hi everyone,

My brother got a blu-ray movie for Christmas and wants to play it in the blu-ray drive he has on his computer. I believe it's an LG drive (BD-RW).

The drive came with a bunch of software including PowerDVD 8. However, neither PowerDVD nor Windows Media Player will play the movie. It says it's an unsupported format.

What kind of software do I need to get the movie to work in the blu-ray drive? I've heard I need to upgrade to the Ultra version of PowerDVD to be able to watch blu-ray movies, but it seems dumb to me that I need to buy extra software to watch the movie.

Thanks.
 

A:Playing Blu-Ray Movies

There were two versions of PowerDVD 8, 1) DVD only, 2) DVD and BluRay. Based on the error, I'd say you have the DVD only version.

You don't need the "Ultra version", but you will likely need the latest version (ie: 12).

I use Windows Media player and it's always worked fine for me. LATELY, when I try to move the curser (to maybe skip something in the video or something) and set it to where I want, or even just enlarge the movie/video to full screen, the picture acts weird and then after about 10 seconds the video might be playing slow and the sound doesn't match up. Or sometimes when I move the curser or fullscreen, there is picture, but no sound. It doesn't happen to EVERY video but I can say 70 percent of videos I watch, it happens to.

Even when I watch streams, if I move the curser, or enlarge the screen, it does the same thing.

I've tried system restore and reinstalled Windows Media Player but no use.

I have no other problems with things that would use my video card like games and all that, so I don't know...

Any idea on what it is or what I can do?

A:Movies on WMP not playing correctly..

Hi there, welcome to TSF...

Do you have any other players installed....can you play the same content on those players without a problem?

It may be an idea to install a new codec pack such as K-Lite??

The only other thing I can recommend is checking through the program settings.

Hey there.

I've been facing a lot of issues with my computer. My processor fan keeps going fast and slowing down. This happens once every 2-3 mins. It becomes noisy for just 4 to 5 seconds and then is normal. This repeats every 2 or 3 minutes. If i'm watching a movie it sort of gets stuck and then plays again with a jerk. I checked my device manager and under 'other devices' there seems to be a question mark.

I was infected by a virus (trojan) which I got help with on the kaspersky forum. The moderators there also confirmed with me twice that the virus does not show on my computer any longer. I don't know what the problem could be but this processor fan issue doesn't seem normal. My computer specs are p4 3.0ghz, 2 gb ram, 500gb Sata HDD. It's not branded..it's assembled. Thanks for the help.
 

A:Problems with playing movies.

It sounds like a possible heat problem. Have you cleaned the dust out of your computer lately? If not get yourself a can of compressed air take the system outside like maybe to the garage, open it up and use the can of air to blow the dust out of it. Do not however use a vacuum cleaner to remove the dust. Vacuum Cleaners are static electricity generators, and can build up enough of a charge to fry components on your system. I see threads where people use vacuums frequently. Please do not pay any attention to the suggestion to do that. While you may be successful all it takes is one discharge of Static electricity and you are spending a lot more money than a 3 or 4 dollar can of air.

I recently purchased a Kodak DX6340 Digital Camera. I would like to record videos to insert into Presentations for Compliance Training at our facility. The camera records just fine and will play in Quick Time Player; however, I want to play these movies in Windows Medial Player or insert into PowerPoint. I continue to get the message that the file is corrupt or not in a format that PowerPoint or that Windows Media Player will read. I have many times to associate the movie file with these applications or change to open in these applications and it does not work. I have also tried with numerous movie files. Any suggestions?
 

A:Playing movies in PowerPoint

Quicktime movies won't play in Powerpoint

Windows Media files (.wmv) and MPEG files (.mpeg, .mpg) are good options to insert into Windows Powerpoint presentations. These file formats offer good quality video at small file sizes. Mpeg or Mpg is the better choice

MPEG files (.mpeg, .mpg) are good choices for cross-platform presentations with inserted movies.

Hyperlinked Quicktime movies (.mov) work well with the Windows Powerpoint application, but Quicktime must be installed on the computer.

HI
I've been trying to burn movies ( avi, divx) to cdr, preferably in Vcd, so that i can play then in a stand alone dvd player.
I've been using Nero v.5.5.6.4; and the movies play fine on the pc, but not the Dvd player ( which is vcd compatible).

I have a 4X burner , and the video encoding/burning can take up to 4hrs for a 70 minute movie excerpt. Is that normal?
Is there any way I can get a full movie ( average time 120min) on 1 cd/vcd.
I've been playing movies on pc using win media player, sometimes Alpha divx player. Some movies allow the option of changing video setting, while other don't. anything i can do?

If your player supports it you can burn using sVCD and get more video onto one disc.

Hi,

I have Windows Media Player 11, and have installed Intervideo XPack to play my DVD's. I have used the Windows XP Video Decoder Checklist and this InterVideo is compatible and has been selected as my decoder. I have uninstalled my CDROM and restarted my PC and looked for updated drivers, but I still can't play my DVD's.

I found out that I can play my CD-R 4X CD Recordable disc with movies on them that someone else had downloaded from their computers. Why can't I play my DVD movies on my computer which has Windows XP Operating System installed. I would appreciate any help that you can give me.

Sincerely yours,

Greetings

Well i got some odd issues while trying to play 3D BD Movies on my laptop recently,
Since i bought it I never had any problems with playing 3D BD movies with PowerDVD, till around 3-4 days ago, when i tried to play something i got this message and powerDVD was unable to play it : "3D Experience requires 3D enabled TV and player" ... tried some more movies but they were only able to be played in 2D ...

I googled it and the solution on cyperlink's site was disabling hardware accelerator as it disable True Theather, now here's the problem, in the main menu,i press CTR+C --> Video --> and I do remove the check mark in front of Enable Hardware Accelerator (ATI Avivo), OK and out. BUT each time i play a movie the Hardware acceletor option greys out with a mark and i'm unable to change it, not sure what happened, a few weeks ago HP assisst manager updated both CCC driver and PowerDVD but i'm not sure since when exactly i'm unable to play 3D BDs with it.

Also tried TotalMedia Theather 5 but still no result, it can play movies just in 2D and the 3D option is unavailable. I searched a lot but i was unable to find a solution, red many stuffs in ATi or cyperlink etc. updating VGA driver, run TriDignition diag test, downloaded and installed AMD Media Codec Package , Restart the computer -.- (oh c'mon) etc. none of them worked !

This isn't my problem, but someone asked me about it, and it seemed so interesting I thought I'd ask here.

it must be some sort of setting, BUT, why would it have a setting for playing them upside down in the first place?

he said he had been fooling around with it, but didn't think he changed anything or "applied" anything different.

I have asked him what his OS/browser etc is.

Has anyone ever heard of this, let alone have a way to fix it? I suggested he reinstall the players, and he had said he might have to wipe the harddrive and redo everything, but that is a last resort.
--------------------------------------------------

I don't know why, but for a few days now Windows Media Player, DivX Player
2.0 and PowerDVD have all been stubbornly insisting on playing all of my
movies upside down. It's driving me totally round the bend. I thank God
every day that RealOne player is able to play movies the right way up and
that Powever DVD is able to play my DVD disks the right way up.

Thanks,
Carrie

I am running XP Pro (SP2), fully updated, IE and Avant browsers, and have winamp, WMP, quicktime alternative, real player alternative. I have never encountered this problem after other reformats.

Hiya

Go to Control panel | Internet Options. Security tab. Custom Settings.
Make sure the drop down menu is set to Medium, reset, yes. If its on medium already, reset anyway.

Is it just wmv's online that you have a problem with?

Also, in Internet options, Advanced tab. Scroll down to Multimedia, and make sure Play Videos in Web Pages is ticked. If its not, tick, apply and ok.

Hello everyone, i am stomped here i hope anyone can share some light please. I purchased two 128BG USB Flash drives from Ebay that came from China, so i know they are not the best quality. But this is really weird. On one of them can only play four movies, if i copy a fifth movie or more, none of them or al of the rest will not play. The other USB is the same, but that one can hold and play nine movies not more. I tried formatting them the fast way and the long way. I am lost, please someone tell me what the heck this can be.

I recently just got a n IBM Thinkpad 380D.

Its pretty much standard but has 80 mb ram and is running 2k Pro and a 3 gb hd.

Im wondering is there any way to play divx movies on it? I have the codecs and I got some small clips to play but I want to be able to play full length movies on it. When I try to play divx movies I usually get sound but the picture just hangs. Any help would be appreciated, thanks.
 

A:Playing movies on 380D?

i don't think it going to cut the mustard...
Pentium 150 w/80mg ram right?

I would say... maybe with more ram... doubtful
Another option for you might be to try to unistall win2000 and try it with win98 (uses less resources, but still doubtful)

If your looking to upgrade (on a tight budget) I would recommend looking into IBM 570's and 600's. There both PII's, but I run WinXP with all of them (and watch movies) no problem (with the ram maxed out at 292mg) i rebuild and sold 6 or 7 them so-far with satisfactory results)

Kind Spirits,
I try to run these but but alas I do so in vain. Windows Media Player bemoans a lack of codec, and VLC Media Player simply despairs. I have scoured the internet for precious hidden codecs but to no avail. Is there any amongst you who are willing to asnwer my plea? Untold riches and rewards beyond all imagination await the brave man, or woman, who can offer an end to my dreadful plight.

A:Playing Original DVD Movies

Hi, I might not be of great help but I felt like I should say something. Now I take it you are trying to play movies and you don't have the codecs.

1) If this is a downloaded movie and it ask for codecs in VLC player = Virus

2) If original movie, asks for codec lets continue the fun.

Now try updating to the lates VLC player. I believe Realplayer it also something of good use.

Also try installing the codecs from here
http://www.free-codecs.com/download/...codec_pack.htm

If possible if you could explain a little more to what movie you are trying to play, format, cd make etc.
Anything you think we shoud know.
