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.

Okay riddle me this one....

On MY computer I cannot access the Electronic Arts website (www.ea.com)(or any part thereof) additionally I cannot connect to GameSpy in Command and Conquer Red Alert 3 to get online for multiplayer?

I have checked my firewall a million times over the past two months, am running Windows Vista Ultimate on a home network behind a Linksys WRT160N router...Both of the other machines (total of 3 on the network) can access both, but for some reason MINE cannot.

The game (C&C:RA3) gives the following error: "Could not connect to the backend server"

I get a server not found error on my web browser and like I said I had a devil of a time just authenticating my copy of the game!

The temporary solution that I figured out was to:
1.) Disable the DNS service in Vista's Services list (accessed by typing "Services" in the Search Pane of the Start Menu)

2.) Then close all my internet browers,

3.) Next reenable the DNS service

4.) And as soon as I reenabled type in to an open command prompt window the following:

ipconfig /flushdns

This would give a 90 second or so period where I could access the site as normal on MY laptop and that is how I got the game to authenticate.

Both of the other ones work fine (can access all parts of the webpage) and I used one of them to download the most recent patch and moved it onto my laptop to try and fix it.

The game patched fine, but it is still having this issue! I run Firefox 90% o... Read more

I am playing Cricket 07 by EA and Rugby 06 by EA on my PC laptop with windows 8.

For some reason when I want to save anything like settings season progress and my profile an error in game comes up "Unable to save"

I installed these games last year sometime and I am certain they were OK then.So maybe some corruption as occurred?

I also recall this happening sometime in the past and it always seems to be EA Sports titles only, and also other games from EA I have installed in the past on both my old Vista PC and present Win 8 machine.

Looking in my Documents folder for the saves for both Rugby 06 and Cricket 07 I can clearly see the folders for those games with sub files inside for the saved profile and settings.So it seems that both games are having problems accessing the documents folder to look for the saves.

Some Google search came up with things like re-formatting the drive ( which was said to be a drastic move) or making up a new user for my PC and switching users when playing these troublesome games?

Any ideas and help would be immense!

Thanks- Tinman:

Hey folks. I'm trying to edit a save game file from "Boiling Point: Road to Hell." The save files are bin files. I've seen some discussion on using bin files for cd imaging, but I need to edit a data bin. Any thoughts or suggestions?
 

A:Editing game save files (*.bin)

Edit it for what purpose?

Basically, if the file is not plain text, the only way you can edit anything is using a hex editor. Or decompiling it if it's code. I doubt this is code, so you need a hex editor. And even then, you'll just be looking at encoded garbage with some text here and there.

In other words, unless somebody has figured out already exactly what bits to change, you are in for countless hours of trial and error and searching hex for the data you need.

In addition to this, the game makers almost always encode their data anyway, so even as you're looking in the file, you won't even know what it is you're looking at. On the other hand, the game could have been made cheaply, and save-hacks might be very easy to do. But don't think you'll open the file and see "Money:4500" and you can just change the number. It's not that easy.

I doubt you'll find much help here for any kind of hacking, even this kind.

Also, if you happen to know which programs the things that I will need to remove are associated with, please let me know so I can block them from installing.

If you have still got the disk then re-install..

To find the saved games folder (if it has one) go to:

My Computer > C:/ (persuming this is the local disk drive) > Program files > then to whoever made the game (eg microsoft, EA games) > then to the game, then have a browse... and look for the 'saved file'

But having no saved games will no way have a effect on the game running at all!. So its not that but back ur saved file up anyway, then re install and copy the 'saved file' into the new installed copy of the 'saved file'

I have an emachines T1842 computer that I purchased a few years ago. I purchased the Fisher Price Digital Arts and Crafts Studio for my daughter to play on the computer. I've installed it, but the graphics on some of the activities weren't correct. They were jumbled together with multiple copies. I called Fisher Price and they said my video driver needed to be updated. I've searched the Gateway website, but really don't know what I"m looking for or where to go. I've called, but they offer no support without $$$. Any suggestions?
 

A:Fisher Price Digital ARts and Crafts Studio

I believe you are looking at the wrong site. Although Gateway may own eMachines, eMachines has its own website. Click here to find the page on the eMachines website to get to your graphics driver.

That said, it appears that your old PC does not quite meet the minimum requirements for the Fisher-Price Digital Arts & Crafts Studio. Specifically, it requires 256MB of RAM and as far as I can tell the T1842 came with 128MB of RAM. Also, since your integrated Intel graphics actually uses some system RAM, you have even less than 128MB of RAM available. Remember, 256MB is the minimum required.

It might also be that your integrated graphics also do not meet the minimum requirements but I'm less sure of that.

When i first ran Frontlines, it asked questions about settings. I tweaked them all and then modified the keys and other settings. The changes were applied until I restarted the game. The game then asked again for my default settings (like it again was my first time running the game).Then I needed to readjust all the changes I had made, the game didn't remember the changed settings.

I played through the first mission in single player, I got to the next mission and the game should have autosaved but when I restarted the game I found out it didn't remember my progress and I was to start over.

I checked on the folder where the game was installed. Yes, ALL the files were "Read-Only". So I unchecked the attribute and applied and Windows removed the "Read-Only" flag from all files, but no folders. The problem didn't get solved.

i am Administrator and use Windows XP Service Pack 3. The game is fully updated to version 1.30. Does anybody have an idea of what is going on?

Thanks.
 

A:Solved: Game doesn't save progress nor settings (Frontlines: Fuel of War)

I solved it, well partly. I found out that there was supposed to be the directory "My Games/Frontlines - Fuel of War" in My Documents. I created the folder and some subfolders and instantly after starting the game new files were added! I then tried changing my controls and it worked, the game remembered!

This is very strange since this tells that the installer didn't install a necessary folder.

However, some other settings still are not remembered but I haven't tried playing the first mission again to see if it might save the progress, don't want to play it through the third time.

If anybody has all the files and folders in "My Games/Frontlines - Fuel of War" available for me to get I would be extremely thankful!

Does anybody play this game?

Hi all

Just a stupid little problem with W7 I noticed which is VERY confusing but simple to fix.

I changed via the dialog the TEXT SIZE via the screen resolution in the control panel to CUSTOM SIZE.

With one of the newer "Cinema" or Very Wide screen (1680 X 900) displays after I'd increased the text size to over 160 % I didn't get the possibility to SAVE any documents any more via the SAVE AS button. The SAVE dialog would appear but the SAVE button was missing.

The effect was noticed in Office 2007 (all programs) Notepad etc etc.

Seems to be a Windows fault as this should not be allowed to happen.

on more traditional "Squarer" type monitors -- no problem.

I couldn't find the answer by googling but a bit of "trial and Error" fixed the problem.


Cheers

I changed via the dialog the TEXT SIZE via the screen resolution in the control panel to CUSTOM SIZE.

With one of the newer "Cinema" or Very Wide screen (1680 X 900) displays after I'd increased the text size to over 160 % I didn't get the possibility to SAVE any documents any more via the SAVE AS button. The SAVE dialog would appear but the SAVE button was missing.

The effect was noticed in Office 2007 (all programs) Notepad etc etc.

Seems to be a Windows fault as this should not be allowed to happen.

on more traditional "Squarer" type monitors -- no problem.

I couldn't find the answer by googling but a bit of "trial and Error" fixed the problem.


Cheers
jimbo


What exactly did you do to fix the problem? You can't have "solved" in the thread title if you don't post the solution...

I seem to remember reading about a utility some years back that would allow one to save a game in progress, if the game didn't already have that feature. Does anyone know about such a utility? Also -- this little game (a card game called Tripeaks) can be played by more than one person at one time, but two people can't run two separate games on the same pc. Is there a way to insulate separate installations? The game runs well in Win 98 on a new, fast pc. Thanks.

One of my user is having this problem on her Windows XP PC:

Dell GX260 with Windows XP Professional running 512MB RAM, Office XP, Acrobat 5.0

When opening a Word file & edited in Word XP, the user cannot SAVE or use SAVE AS the file, when try to exit out the file, get prompt to either SAVE, CLOSE, or CANCEL the file, at that point it will still not save the file, the only way to exit the file is to hit CLOSE to exit.

I initially thought this might be a Word Xp problem, so I ran the repair tool in Office XP, that did not fix it.

I then uninstalled Office XP, reinstalled Office XP, but that also did not fix the problem.

I then ran the Office update to download the latest patches from MicroSoft, but that also did not fix the problem.

I then UNINSTALLED Acrobat 5.0 from the PC, that FIXED the problem.

WITHOUT Acrobat 5.0 on her PC, the user was now able to open & edit a Word file, and able to SAVE the edited file, also able use SAVE AS to save the file as a new copy.

I then reinstalled Acrobat 5.0 thinking the previous copy of Acrobat 5.0 on the PC might be corrupted, as soon as Acrobat 5.0 was back on the PC, the same problem with the SAVE feature came back in Word XP.

I then installed the patch update for Acrobat 5.0, that did not fix the problem.

At this point, I am out of clues on how to fix it....The user tried Acrobat 6.0 before on the same PC, but decided to reverse back to Acrobat 5.0 because of format problem with 6.0.......so Acrobat 6.0 is no... Read more

Trying to figure out a global issue with are new  Windows 7 image at work in IE.  We have old PC's that we are replacing and on the PC's we are using an updated Windows 7 image but has the same IE 11 version 11.0.9600.18738CO on both images.
 The difference though is that there is no security prompt to open PDF files on the old image.  On the new one we get the prompt to Open, save or save-as and trying to find a way to remove it.  Our guy that built the image did not set the Group
Policy intentionally if there is one for this.  I can't find a way to remove the prompt in GPedit.msc, missing the "Launching applications and unsafe file" is missing but yet i see the option under security settings in IE.  The radio buttons
are grayed out from making changes in that window.


Any thoughts?

I have a number of files I would like to try and save off of the disk, and/or I would like to know if there is any saving the hard drive for future use. I record music and use adobe programs for freelance artwork. Also there are a number of pictures I'd love to recover (though as far as I know they're backed up on google drive). The .wavs of some recordings were recent and were not backed up in time before the disk crashed.

I apologize, this is lenghty but i'll throw it all out there.

As best as I can remember this is the sequence of events:
My daughter was born three weeks ago, my wife decided to pop in a usb thumbdrive to save baby pictures to my pc (Dell Optiplex755 refurbished, Win7 32 bit, Intel dual core processors, Seagate 7200.12 Barracuda 1TB hardrive).

A few pictures, unknown to me at the time, were corrupted wither on the flashdrive or the camera's memory card.

After she moved the pictures to the computer it froze, and she restarted.

Windows Desktop Manager crashed, and CPU in task manager was at 100% always.

I ran an error check, and four files were found to be corrupt and fixed (3 photos, 1 reaper file, and 1 system 32 file. (I'm an idiot and I didn't write down the system 32 file.)

After error check, I noticed a yellow exclamation next to optiplex in devices, and I was notified that the driver for my intel processors was not compatible suddenly with windows. I tried to download new optiplex drivers but chrome and internet explorer would fr... Read more

It almost sounds like you got some malware from that USB stick.

If you have a friend with a Linux computer, or have access to one, you can often hook up a non booting drive and recover files that way. I don't know the exact procedure but something like this may help, too:

Hi,

I've been searching for most parts of the net and the forums here and did install/uninstall/restore my notepad, paint and wordpad but nothing seems to work.

When these files are opened, nothing seems to be a problem. But whenever you attempt to save by Ctrl+S, or the by clicking File>Save or File>Save As the program automatically closes. This has been a consistent behavior for the 3 softwares.

I'm using Windows XP 64 bit OS and had no error messages of any sort except that these programs just close themselves when a save attempt is done.

I did virus and malware scans by Avast, ESET Nod & Kaspersky and nothing was detected.

Reinstalling isn't an option for me now as I don't have any optical drive... besides, this may be very hard for me but I'm willing to suffer for the sake of learning.

I'd really appreciate your inputs on this matter.
Thanks for all ideas and help ahead!
 

A:Notepad, Wordpad, Paint automatically closes whenever save or save as is selected.

How did you uninstall/reinstall the programs without the CD? They're part of the system.

The computer involved is using Windows 7 Pro 64bit and Office Professional Plus 2010.

I am having a problem I cannot find a solution to. I have one user at a clients location that has recently stopped being able to save excel files in their my documents. The my docs is being redirected to a server. The files open correctly and can be edited, but when save is clicked an error box says the document not saved. Using cntrl-shift-i I found the error code to be 100490. I can open any other file and save them just fine. And any new excel documents can be opened and saved correctly. The file can be saved into the same folder using save as is and the document is renamed. However, the user cannot erase the old file.

Doing some digging I made sure the trust zone was enable for the network path and trusted locations on a network were allowed. They had already been configured.

I checked for the windows update that microsoft reported could fix this problem and it was not installed. I went ahead and tried the hotfix, but it would not run because of the missing update.

I tried changing permissions and ownership. This where it gets strange the user has full control enabled on the folder. On any other folder or file I can right click and view the security tab. However, on the excel files when I click the security tab a red line is displayed that says "This file is currently not available for use on this computer." If I try to make a security change on a whole folder any excel fil... Read more
