An error has occurred message when going full screen.

Q: An error has occurred message when going full screen.

Hi there,
We are having a problem that all computers on our domain, when made to go full screen watching a video primarily on Youtube; giving us the 'An error has occurred' problem. I've been testing and it doesn't seem to be only full screen. If i play normal (not
fullscreen) then make the window bigger on my 1080 monitor it will get to a certain size and then give me this error. It appears that i can only go to 1024 x 768 full screen anything else and it errors.
PCs are dell optiplex 3020.
All up to date updates
Video drivers up to date (on board).
Any ideas guys?
Thanks.

I have an error message: An error occurred while loading a file. AOL will attempt to restore the file. My emails, however, are affected. I have email icons without subjects. The emails do open but I cannot know what they are or who sent them prior to opening and I cannot download attachments, answer or forward the messages. This is a potential disaster if I cannot fix this quickly.

My apologies if this has been gone over before,but i'm asking this in desperation (almost) !.  I used Outlook Express for years when i had Win.XP on my old PC without a single problem. In the last 18 months,since i've had my new PC Win.7 Home Premium 64 bit. i've had to use Windows Live Mail & it's utter c**p !. Almost every day without fail,when trying to send or open an e-mail,i get the rerror message attached.The only way i can get Live Mail to send or open any e-mail, is to log off & re-boot my PC ,which is a PITA,especially as when a few months ago,i was taking part in some pretty lively correspondence on line.   Is there a definitive cure for this problem other than switching to another e-mail system  ?. I've searched the I/net for a solution,but all i find areboat loads of others with exactly the same problem & no answer & definitely no respose from Microsoft.   I would get rid of Live Mail & install another mail system if only i was sure that i wouldn't make a total mess of it as i'm not 100% PC literate.So,any serious advice will be deeply appreciated,

A:Windows Live Mail error message - "A problem occurred.......

Unfortunately, that error message is pretty generic -- without some sort of error code, it's hard to troubelshoot.
 
You can try going to the Start menu, select Control Panel, Programs, Programs and Features. Select Windows Live Essentials from the list of programs, select Uninstall/Change at the top menu bar, and then select Repair all Windows Live Programs.

Any ideas of how I can fix this issue?

Windows Mail suddenly does not send or receive messages. When I attempt to send a message, I receive the following error, "The message could not be sent. An error has occurred." When I click the Send and Receive button, the pop-up box comes up, but not long enough for me to read anything. However, it appears to complete the send/receive process with no errors. I have had issues in the past and often received an error number, but not this time. When I go into my accounts, I have changed the password to my incoming server to the wrong one to see if it recognizes the error and have also changed port numbers and still receive no error. I have attempted working offline and double-checked to ensure it recognizes the wireless internet connection - which it does.

I do not currently have and have never had any anti-virus programs installed on my computer. I have logged into my email through my browser and deleted all emails from all of my folders, closed Windows Mail and then re-started it to no avail.

I would just upgrade to Windows Live Mail, but I already did that once before when I was experiencing other problems with Windows Mail, and that program has also stopped working correctly so I had to go back to Windows Mail. Therefore, it appears that if I cannot get this issue resolved, I will be stuck using my browser (which is not very user-friendly) and my iPhone. Needless to say, I am quite frustrated with Windows Mail and Vista!

PLEASE HELP!

A:Windows Mail - "The message could not be sent. An error has occurred."

First let's fix the major problem of not having an antivirus! For now please download Malwarebytes and run a full, updated scan. Malwarebytes : Free anti-malware, anti-virus and spyware removal download That should clean up any bad software on your computer. And I would imagine you have a lot... There are plenty of good free antivirus programs out there, most of the people on this site highly recommend Microsoft Security Essentials. Virus, Spyware & Malware Protection | Microsoft Security Essentials

After running malwarebytes, see if your mail problem is still occurring.

Personally, I just have to recommend you switch to using Mozilla Thunderbird, instead of Windows Mail. It's very clean and easy to use. And free. Check it out. Mozilla Thunderbird That's just a personal suggestion, you don't have to if you really like Windows Mail

Hi, I am currently based in Germany and cannot work out why I cannot access 2 associated websites:

However, when using the same laptop in Australia with a different internet service provider, there is no problem with accessing the above sites so I know that I can reach the websites with this laptop.

I have tried many things including calling the airline directly to see if they have an IT help desk or if they are experiencing website problems. No to both.

Hi there,

Sometimes ISPs block certain sites. It may be worth checking with them to see if there is a block on it for some reason.

You could also try going onto a proxy surf site and accessing it from there incase the site has blocked your IP for some reason.

I keep getting an error message stating that I need to free up space on my recovery drive (D).
After looking at contents of the drive I have 3 folders ( & yes I clicked on show hidden files, folders, & drives)
2 folders , $RECYCLE.Bin, & System Volume Information are empty.
The 3rd, Recovery Image folder has one file, Install.win which is 5.8 GB
My question is how do I address this problem, & is this normal.
The computer is prone to freeze ups, slow spells, & I've heard this condition can cause problems.
We are talking about a machine with an I-7 chip & 8 gigs of Ram being used for simple task like email, quickbooks, & office tasks, so we are not putting heavy usage on it.
I did create a repair disk but have yet to make the recovery media disk(s) till I get a better understanding of what I'm up against.
Thanks for looking.

Post your model computer and operating system. It is normal for the hidden system folders to appear empty. Make sure you did not use. add to or change the recovery drive D. That is not to be tampered with or used for backups. It was only for returning to the original factory image.

My question: what would lead an older program (Windows 95 era) to abort an operation with the message: “Cannot complete archiving because Hard Drive is full”?

With 12 GigaBytes free on the partition in question (which holds the actual program and its data), my drive is clearly not full. In fact the 2 Gigabytes of RAM are far more than I had on a hard drive when I began using the program.

TOSHIBA Satellite A200
2048 Megabytes Installed Memory
288.55 Gigabytes Usable Hard Drive Capacity
Windows XP Home Edition Service Pack 3 (build 2600) up to date

The program is Money Counts for Windows (the last version), and it has run beautifully for me for years. It works just fine on my XP system, except that on this new, bigger laptop with Service Pack 3 installed, it will not complete archiving.

I’ve tried running it in Win 95 compatibility mode, though that is not normally needed, with the same results. I’ve also cleared my temp folders, but that made no difference.

Are some older programs “allergic” to large hard drives? Or is there some other condition that an older program might interpret as a full hard drive?

Several months ago, I accidently dragged and dropped my PSP file into another folder. I went to windows explorer to drag it back out. Some of the files were fine but others were not. I could not view the contents of the files. So I turned on my external hard drive that I use strictly for a back up in case something happened.....I copied the file back on to my computer. Now, there are many files/folders that I cannot open and I cannot delete them. I get an error message saying the file may be write protected, in use or the disk may be full.
I right clicked on the file>properties and uncheck read only file. Still I can't access those folders at all and I can't get rid of them. Can you suggest something else I can do to either view the contents or delete the folders from my hard drive.

Hi all,
Been having a few computer troubles, last couple of days. Up until now, I have never had a computer crash since building my machine. Occasionally I've had to force-quit a program, but never random crashes.

I've had 6 in the last day or so, though. And none of them have happened with a BSoD. The last one to happen was while watching a movie. I Ctrl+Alt+Del'd and it got stuck showing a message "preparing security options..." with the time-circle(?), but never progressed past that point.

They all seem to happen at random, regardless of what I do. When playing full-screen games, watching full-screen movies, or even just sitting idling. I've tried updating my MOBO BiOS, my gfx driver, tried taking out and setting the RAM again, and even ran a full-system scan with both anti-virus and with CCleaner.

I'm afraid I'm not sure what I should do.

I tried to upload the files from the SF_Diagnostic_Tool, but got a message saying I didn't have the correct Security Token?

If there's any other information that you require of me, please don't hesitate to ask.

I've got a hard disk in my laptop partitioned into to two.

After a year of good service, my laptop is now, from time to time during use, displaying 'disk full' type messages when trying to save a file (Word) or unzip a file (Winrar) and things like that.

I can still access files on the disk, just not write to it, although the problem when it is occurring seems to be intermittent.

The disks aren't full and have over 10% free. When I restart Windows the problem goes away.

I'm guessing there is something wrong with the disk?

Any ideas on how to check for errors/problems or solve this?

When I watch a video on YouTube, it is not full screen

A:youtube full screen error?

Am I correct, these are both screen shots from YouTube but from the two different computers ?
 
Not all videos are taken with the same aspect ratio and if the aspect ratio of the video is different from that of your screen it will not fill the screen. Look at an old video shot in 4:3 running on a modern computer or TV screen with an aspect ratio of 16:9 or similar. You will get a black edge where it does not fit your screen. It would have been helpful if your two screen shots had been of the same video clip !
 
Since you say you have "graphic card uninstall, reinstall" - I take it you mean the drivers - the only thng I can think for you to do is check the display resolution. RIGHT click on an blank piece of screen and select 'Screen resolution' from the pop-up menu. Then make sure that your resolution is set to its maximum level, normally the 'recommended' one.

Hello, recently I had ended the process of Windows Live Mail due to the program freezing up on my computer. Upon restarting the program, I could not reply to e-mails, and I also cannot write new e-mails. There may have been some e-mails that I cannot open at all, but I am not sure.

I am reluctant to delete all of my messages and to a complete 100% clean installation because I have thousands of e-mails from two accounts that need to be backed up.

I prefer an alternate solution if possible.

I have already did the uninstall from "Programs" and re-installed the software. I had deleted various registry keys that some sites had recommended to people with a similar issue.

I had posted on the microsoft forums, but have yet to receive a reply. I am hoping that somebody here can help advise me on this issue.

Hello all,

I've been having a very annoying problem for quite a while now. When I play games or use any sort of full screen program, it refuse to stay in full screen and flickers to the desktop after a 10-30 minute period...I'm aware this is probably another program trying to take control, but I can't seem to pin it down. I've tried disabling startup programs through task manager and I've also tried ending background process, with no success.

Can someone please advise how to troubleshoot this issue, or let me know an easier way to find out what is going on...

Any help will be greatly appreciated!

Hi,Running Windows 7 RTM x64 on both my PC at home and my workstation at work.My PC at home has a square monitor and my work PC has a widescreen monitor.I used webapps (citrix) from home to get into work environment then remoted to my workstation.Since doing that, when I am physically at the workstation (at work), I can no longer remote desktop to servers in full screen mode.  Instead, it does a smaller window with "full screen settings".  Basically the full screen remote desktop is about 3/4 size of the monitor, not 100%.Any help appreciated.-thanks

So my issue is with all my full screen games, after a few minutes to a few hours the screen go's black and an error pops up on screen.

Signal out of range set to "1680 X 1050 @ 60hz"

Normally I would just put it to those settings, but the issue is these are basically my setting in the nevidia control panel my settings are exactly that. The only thing I could see is the advanced display settings are 59hz. But you can't set it to 60 because windows 7 rounds down instead of up now.

This is what i'm running

Alenware aurora R4

Video Caption: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 555
Video AdapterRAM: 1024MB
Video DriverVersion: 8.17.12.8576

Screen: Dell 2208WFP

I have talked to dells support and after reinstating the drivers has not fixed the issue and there basically saying they can't do anything about it.

and so I turn to you internet any of you smart people know the fix?

We do need the DMP file as it contains the only record of the sequence of events leading up to the crash, what drivers were loaded, and what was responsible.

If you are overclocking STOP!

You may be able to get the DMP files without crashing by booting into safe mode (F8) with networking.

I have Windows Vista Ultimate on a Dell Vostro 1700 with 3 gigs of memory. Vista is running well for every application except one. I have an old DOS program called Managing Your Money (MYM) that I have used for 15 plus years. I still like it and the program does everything that I need it to do. MYM is not supported any more but it still works. I had no problems in XP. I would go to the DOS command prompt, open the MYM application and hit alt/enter and it would open to full screen. In Vista, I do the same thing but when I hit alt/enter I get this message "This system does not support full screen mode." I have tried right clicking the command prompt and going to properties and layout and adjusting the size of the window but when I hit OK, it reverts back to what it was before which is about 1/3 of the screen. I have tried this site and many others for a fix but have not found it. I may have missed it but I am hoping that someone has an answer. Thanks!

[third attempt to post]
I recently bought a brand new Hewlett Packard computer. It prompts you to back up your files and gives you the option of selecting the backup drive 'd' or writing to dvd. I selected writing to the backup drive.

The system tried to backup my files but sent an error message 'recovery drive full' It continues to prompt me to backup my files.

I solved this problem by going to the HP website, clicking on 'troubleshooting' and entering the details of my computer. I then found an FAQ somehow.

The page explained that I had been wrong to select the d drive to back up my files (how foolish of me to choose one of two options offered.) It said that the D drive was only small. I must delete the file already created there and then change the settings to create a backup onto a dvd drive instead.

You delete the backed up copy of the file by going to start/computer/HP recovery d/ where the first folder you will find will be one with the name of your computer eg. in my case Anna-PC. You then delete this file.

You then go to start and type 'backup' in the search box. Select 'backup and restore center' then 'change settings' then 'change backup settings' then give your permission to continue, then select 'DVD rw drive e' which describes itself as 'on a hard disc, cd or dvd' .

I wondered if there had been some sort of design error. Why did they give me that option i... Read more

Actually what concerns me more is, I wonder if you have deleted files in your recovery partition.
It's usually hidden from inside Windows, so I expect no. But by chance did you receive a Windows CD or just a recovery partition (because the recovery files may now be gone)

As for the location, think of it this way, it will show all areas that you can backup to. I think even the floppy drive (if you have one) this is to give you the full choice, instead of putting restrictions on your own computer (which most don't like)

That's why.
