I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)


I recently installed the game Starsiege: Tribes on my Windows XP system.

When I double-click the .exe file, or run it through "Run" in the startup menu, nothing happens. All that happens is that the hour glass appears for half a second, then everything is back to normal. No error message, nothing.

I hit ctrl+alt+del to see if tribes.exe was in the list of processes--and indeed it was. So why isn't the program running?

I installed the latest patch, to see if it would do any good. No success.

I recently installed Sims 3, but whenever I try to launch it, I get this error message: 'The application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000135). Click on OK to terminate the application.' I have no idea what to do, all help is greatly appreciated.

A:Error message when trying to launch game

Hi and welcome to TSG.

Is the machine you are trying to run Sims 3 on, the one in your profile? If yes, the first thing I would suggest is updating Windows if you really are working with SP1 still. There have been a significant amount of updates and improvements through SP2 and SP3 and this could be a significant contributing factor. You are also missing a large number of fixes for security vulnerabilities.

I would also suggest downloadning and installing an antivirus program if you ever use the machine online, try something like Microsoft Security Essentials. It is totally free for home use, I use it myself and haven't had any problems so far.

I've had this problem for quite some time now and it is leaving me unable to play any games on my computer. The game will attempt to launch, but will immediately crash without starting up - without any on screen error message.  If I look inside the event viewer, I've found the particular error to be faulting from KERNELBASE.DLL.  Here is the event log when trying to start up "Hero Siege" (Although the same problem will happen to almost any game I have in steam) Faulting application name: Hero_Siege.exe, version:, time stamp: 0x56cdc38dFaulting module name: KERNELBASE.dll, version: 10.0.10586.306, time stamp: 0x571afb9aException code: 0xc00000fdFault offset: 0x000ad171Faulting process id: 0x3088Faulting application start time: 0x01d1acd4a9516798Faulting application path: C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\HeroSiege\bin\Hero_Siege.exeFaulting module path: C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\KERNELBASE.dllReport Id: f5eebf01-e5d6-4e06-a364-20a20dfc034fFaulting package full name:Faulting package-relative application ID:  I run on an HP 15 laptop (x64 bit) with AMD A8-6410 APU processor, and AMD Radeon R5 2.00 GHz graphics I'm not quite technically savvy enough to solve this, and I've tried many things such as the obvious "run as an administrator" as well as played with compatibility settings.

Hi, everyone !

Having a bit of trouble and it's become quite frustrating. Trying everything before doing the ole' Win7 reinstall.

I started replaying Arkham City again in February and it worked fine.

A few days ago I decided to try out Assassins Creed Unity, but the game was poorly optimized and kept giving me a 0xc00007b error at launch.

After following the online instructions, I uninstalled and reinstalled every Visual C++ package and NET Framework and finally it worked.

The problem is, now every game I have on Steam is giving the same error, EXCEPT Assassin Creed Unity.

Tried to do the same steps again, but it still isn't working.

My graphics driver is up-to-date. I have attached my DxDiag. I'm running Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit. Latest Windows update found is 29 kb but when I choose to install it it gives an error code B.

PS: The issue occurs rather awkward. If I select to play the game on Steam, nothing happens. As in, the game does not open but shows no error. If I select to configure PC options for the game first, it launches the game launcher and when hitting PLAY it displays the error in question.

A:Error 0xc000007b on every video game launch except AC Unity

I eventually just reinstalled Windows. Thanks

Hey, all. I've recently downloaded Little Busters from steam - it just came out yesterday, and I can see that it's a little buggy, but so far, none of the bugs patched and addressed relate to my problem.

As soon as I launch it, it crashes. It's all white, plays no sound or video; it doesn't get far enough to. As it crashes, the error I get says:

"An unhandled win32 exception occurred in LITBUS_WIN32.exe [4048]. Just-In-Time debugging this exception failed with the following error: No installed debugger has Just-In-Time debugging enabled. In Visual Studio, Just-In-Time debugging can be enabled from Tools/Options/Debugging/Just-In-Time.

Check the documentation index for 'Just-in-time debugging, errors' for more information."

I have no idea what this means, since as far as I can tell, visual studio is an app dev program? People were saying N versions of Windows are having problems, but I don't feel that that's my problem? I mean, maybe, but...

Anyway, my diagnostic info is:

During the Komoto Shipyard mission, every time I grab the control room technician, interrogate him and then force him to raise the submarine using the computer, there is no call from a technician on the sub to inform the control room technician the sub has risen. The automatic video sequence that starts when the control room technician plays with the computer stops after the sub rises and no call comes in from the sub technician. If I try to interrogate the control room technician further, nothing happens. If I knock out the control room technician, the game ends automatically. I have run this mission 20 times from the start with the same result. Is this a software glitch or am I missing something?

ok, so, on my x64 edition windows that i just recieved.. there are two different program files directories. One is just regular program files, and one says x86... i assumed that the regular one is for 64 bit programs and x86 is for 32 bit. Anyways, i am a counter-strike finatic. First thing i try to do after i install all of my drivers, play a little CS:S. I try to play... some pop up says this application has to terminate due to unexpected problem. I thought it would be that it was in the 64 bit program files, but it wasnt. Should i move it to the 64 bit program files? what should i do to play my game!!! Someone help... i need counter-strike.

You have already posted a thread reguarding this issue here


I also went through your other threads and you are having a heck of a time with your new x64 edition and you will. The vendors are still putting out drivers for the X64 version of windows, so your going to run into issues.

Hi there

I have just bought the Family Collection of games from Hasbro, because I love Monopoly. However, after installing Monopoly successfully, I cannot get the game to run When I click the shortcut, I get a message something like this......

Put CD in the CD ROM drive and wait for the drive light to turn off. I get this same message in a few lanuages then the message dissapears, but the game does not start. I have tried everything I can think of, even starting the game manually, but I just get the same message over and over again, but no game launch.

Any idea why this happens, and how can I get the game to launch, I really want to play again. Or is there anywhere online I can play with computer opponents as opposed to human ones. I don't like playing multi-player online games.

I've posted a similar message on Nvidia forums, as I'm not sure what the problem is...

Anyway, I've been experiencing a weird problem with my GTX 770 since yesterday: as soon as I launch a game, my screen turn black and I'm often forced to reboot my PC. Sometimes I get an error message from the game itself, but most times my PC simply freezes.One important note: the same thing happens if I launch FurMark... I can watch clips and movies, I can use my PC but I can't launch any game (and FurMark).
I've already removed (with DDU) my drivers at least four times and tried different versions, same results.
I've also repaired my OS (Win10) with an ISO image and I've checked my HD.
I have still to check my RAM but to be honest I think it's unlikely the RAM itself could be the problem.
Ah, I've also tested it with two different monitors, one with the Display and the other one with the HDMI, same problem.
MY GPU's temperature is around 42 C when I start the game and I get the BSoD in less than one second, so I don't think overheating can be blamed...
I've never done any overcloking...
I'm afraid my GPU is broken but I really don't know I can be sure or I can solve the problem, does anybody around here have any clue?

Do you think it could be a Windows 10 issue?
Thank you so much!

I bought the game Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter (GRAW). It played it fine and at the time

I had a GeForce 4 MX400 which was way below the requiremtns. I installed the patch for the

game (graw_1.30_mp_pack_3), that is a patch and map pack. When I started the game it quickly

just restarted my PC. I was advized I might need new video card. I went and got the Radeon

x1300 Pro. According to system requirements I am above the standards.


I uninstalled everything. Patch, GRAW, Old video card and drivers. Restarted the computer.

Installed the new video card. Updated to latest drivers (V Restart. Installed

GRAW. Now at this point the day before GRAW ran, it was only until I ran the patch it didn't

work the first time around. It would not even work at this point! It still restarted my PC

on game launch. I installed the patch just to see what would happen, and restart happened

when I launched that too.

A:HELP: Game restarts my PC on launch.

Power supply adequate?

Have you checked the RAM?


I can run a debugging utility on the dump files if you do this:

1 > create a new folder on the desktop and call it "dumpcheck" or whatever you like
2 > navigate to c:\windows\minidump and copy the last 2 or 3 minidump files to that folder. They are numbered by date.
3 > close the folder and right click on it and select "Send to (folder name).zip"
4 > use the "manage attachments" in the "advanced" reply window to upload that zip file here as an attachment.

This might point us to a 3rd party driver causing the error, if one exists for it.

Since almost all bugchecks can be caused by faulty ram, I would recommend you perform memory tests.

I prefer the Memtest86 utility myself -- but you can run both if you want. If you use the CD-ROM (ISO) version, you will need burning software that specifically supports ISO burning. You just don't drag and drop them on a writable disk.

Hi everyone, I'm having a big problem in getting my new game to work. The game is FIFA Manager 08. I have successfully installed and played it on 2 other laptops while staying with my fiancé, but when i tried to play it on my own laptop it just doesnt open.

The installation is always successful, i then double the desktop icon and after about 15 seconds the windows error box appears saying send report, dont send report etc. The error code is 0xc0000005.
I wanted to play the game so i researched myself to try and fix the problem by searching the error code on google and finding people experiencing similar problems... i tried all of the suggested 'solutions' posted on various forums i came across but still the same problem.

The things ive tried include, searching for viruses and spyware (none found), editing the registry (no affect), updating windows, uninstalling/reinstalling video card, changing to run this program in compatibility mode for windows 2000... and thats just off the top of my head.

I will take you through what i did on very first install on this laptop:

Hope someone here's got some ideas on this one.

Recently purchased "Singularity" via www.direct2drive.com. Downloaded the game files using GameSpy Comrade (as is basically mandated by D2D). Files downloaded fine and game installed fine, but when I go to launch the game all that happens is the blue circle spins next to the mouse cursor for a few seconds followed by a whole lot of nothing. The game does appear in the Task Manager for a short time before finally disappearing. I've tried re-downloading and re-installing, and tried a clean wipe/re-install of my video drivers. Game will not launch. On the most recent re-install, I tried launching before applying the patch (Singualrity 1.1 Digital) and after with no difference. Any help anyone might be able to offer would be appreciated.

Hello. This is my first post ever so i'll try to keep this pretty basic.I just received a 4 year old laptop. Its not great but it was originally Windows 7 and i have now upgraded it to 8.1. it has 2.23 gigahertz dual core processor and 4 gigs or ram. Its decently fast. I have already wiped all malicious programs from the laptop I.E. virus ect. But no games will launch. I have multiple copies of games that i know work fine but still everything fails to launch or produce a form of error code. Some games simply do not respond when i right click the application and attempt to open. And other games will just pop up an unrelatable error code. I have spent 48 hours trying to fix this myself. I even went to the length of going into command prompy and running the sfc /send Command line. Not that i know what that is or does but it wasnt detrimental but also didnt work. Please respond.

I do not know if I need to fix the Motherboard, the videocard, some people say it's the DirectX, i honestly don't know too much about computers and all the technical stuff. Thanks for reading, I could use all the help I can get.

A:computer crashes on game launch

Hi and welcome to TSG.

Is this a prebuild, branded PC like a HP, Dell, Acer etc? If so, what is the exact make and model number?

What is the exact make, model and wattage of the PSU?

Have you ever changed or upgraded any hardware since you got the machine?

Is Windows and all your drivers fully patched and up to date?

Could be drivers, PSU, graphics card, RAM or something else at this stage

Hey guys,
Basically, any time I launch a game that uses my graphics card at all, my computer hangs up, and my GPU usage skyrockets. I then get a message that my Nvidia driver crashed and successfully restarted.
At first, I thought it was a Bitminer trojan, but I have run Malwarebytes, HitmanPro, and a few other programs, and none of them have found anything. I am at my wit's end. Please, someone help me.
Thank you,

So I have a MSI GT70 with two graphic cards : an intel HD Graphics 4000 used for the desktop and anything that doesn't involve too much GPU usage and an Nvidia Geforce GTX 675M used for gaming. I made sure the Nvidia GPU was used when gaming, so the problem can't be swapping. But, each time I launch a game or anything that uses the Nvidia graphic card my computer shows a Blue Screen of Death. I have tried reinstalling drivers, even by cleaning the older one. Still the BSoD. I have tried the factory reset and installing the latest driver, still the BSoD. I'm really worried as changing a GPU in a laptop is not a piece of cake for a noob like me. So I hope it's a problem that can be solved with software.

Let me know if you need any other kind of info, and ty for your time !

A:BSoD each time I launch a game

Quick update on my post : I have reinstalled all the windows 7 updates (which where installed before my factory reset so anyway I kinda knew they had nothing to do with the BSoD) and I updated my bios .. Still got the BSoD.
Could the Nvidia graphic card be broken ? It still launches the game for about 10-30 min before crashing.

Hi Everyone,

I just finished building a new, fully custom, high-end gaming rig and have come across only one problem. Whenever I attempt to run any of my games (some old, some brand new) or even ones on the internet, such as from addictinggames.com. I get a BSOD for IRQ_NOT_LESS_THAN_OR_EQUAL. Unsure why this is happening and given the circumstances, appears to have something to do with the graphics cards possibly? Any help that can be offered would be greatly appreciated!

My computer freezes entirely when I launch a game called CS:GO. I can't even do ctrl+alt+del and alt+f4. The buttons that emit light won't respond like when I press the caps lock button, it wont indicate a light on the right side of the keyboard. Why is this happening? I have a GTX 970 ZOTAC Extreme Edition, and normal temps on cpu and gpu. Help?

I have a computer that will sometimes give me the Blue Screen of Death when I try launching a game. Before, it would only happen sometimes, but now it seems to happen almost every time. It happens when I launch any of the games on Steam (Half-Life 2, Garry's Mod, etc.), BioShock, Crysis, and Call of Duty 2. The computer quickly restarts, so I can never have time to write down any of the details on the screen.

My computer is:
AMD X2 4400+
Radeon X1900XT 512MB Card
ASUS A8R32-MVP Deluxe
Windows XP SP2

All of my drivers are up to date, and I am just confused on what to do. I don't know if this will help too much, but I included a HiJackThis log in case it can help. So what could I do to fix this problem?

Thanks in advance

Hi guys. I installed a R7 370 graphics card into my system from a friend. It was working FINE in his system he just upgraded to a newer better card.

I am running a 600W PSU with an 80 Plus Bronze rating on it. Same PSU he ran the card with as well.

Every time I try to start COD:MW3 from Steam I get nothing but a black screen....I can hear the startup game sounds if I wait long enough, but STILL no picture or anything, just blackness.

I tried reinstalling the game but no go.

Any ideas?

I've had this problem for a couple of days. Every time I start a game like portal or team fortress 2 svchost.exe starts eating cpu. This goes on for a couple of minutes and suddenly svchost goes back to normal cpu usage.
I have 7 different svchost.exe processes in my task manager, 3 system, 2 local service and 2 network service.
I've downloaded process explorer and the svchost that takes all the cpu has the PID 1412, dunno if that info makes any difference but sounds important.
I've searched for svchost.exe to see if there are any more that could be possible viruses but i only found the one in /windows/system32/
I have no idea what could be causing this problem... Also, I apologize if there already is a solution for this in another topic. Didn't find any when I searched.
I'm running windows media center 2005.

Any help is appreciated!

Whenever i launch a game that i have enabled full-screen on, my computer simply freezes and i can't do anything other than to force shut-down my computer by holding down the power button.
This started to happen after i changed from Gtx 680 to Gtx 1070.
All my drivers are in the newest version (i installed all the newest ones 1 hour before making this post and games still crashed)
However i am able to play games in windowed or borderless mode without any problems.

hi, so i uninstalled my mcafee A/V a while ago and instead i installed kaspersky antivirus. i use my laptop for gaming and never had a problem with that until i used kaspersky.
it now takes 2-3 minutes to start a game, during this time the laptop slows down a lot, and when i check my task manager it says that kaspersky is taking almost 100% of disk space. when the game finally starts everything goes back to normal.
is there a way to fix this without uninstalling kaspersky? i payed good money for it.


A:kaspersky uses 100% of disk when i launch a game

Are you talking about all games or one game in particular. If only one game, temporarily disable Kaspersky to run and see if any improvement.

Personally, I would uninstall Kaspersky using their removal tool, it is a resource hog anyway. Chalk it up to a learning experience. Try some of the free AV programs, such as Avast or AVG, to find which works best for you.

I am experiencing the following very strange intermittent problems and evil behavior in XP.

My Start Menu sometimes only appears for a split second when clicked and will not stay displayed. Also minimised apps. wont maximise and apps. and short cuts on the desktop wont launch when double left clicked and instead show properties as if they were right clicked!!

I have done the following to try and resolve these issues.

1. Updated from SP1 to SP 2 as well as all the security updates.

2. Ran Adaware and Spybot to find any unwelcome visitors. Adaware only found one minor issue.

3. Ran Symantec Antivirus which found and quarantined several viruses.

4. Ran WinDoctor which found and said it resolved quite a few issues.

This is really a pain as it makes the system virtually unusable except for when it is behaving which is rare.

Would be grateful for any suggestions, solutions, incantations or workarounds for this issue/s

Kind regards

Hi there Tech Support Guy forums!

Ive just gone out to buy the new overwatch to find that the menu screen causes my PC to freeze the moment the game gets launched, which i find to be strange considering most other games seem to work just fine. I have also had minor hiccups with League of Legends and World of Warcraft but nothing to the extent of my Overwatch issue (cant even play a game).

System specs:
Intel i7 [email protected]
240GB Sandisk SSD
1000W PSU
Windows 10 Pro 64 bit

Ive so far tried replacing the SSD (new one in use now), tried updating and clean installing drivers, and run memory diagnostic checks all to no avail. Blizzard tech support have all but confirmed its a software problem, but I have a suspicion it may be a PSU issue when under load (faulty maybe?)

Attached are DxDiags and MSInfo reports. Any help greatly appreciated!

Just installed i7-6700k, maximus viii ranger and 16gb gskillz ddr4. instealled fresh win 7 on a 225gb ssd. I have an evga gtx 970

When I play a certain game, the computer will restart, it sometimes does it right when i load in, sometimes after playing for a bit. Cannot figure it out and it worked fine on my other system.

ran sfc /scannow and it said it fixed some files, still had the issue after that.

Event viewer will tell me there was an unexpected shutdown at a specific time, but then there is nothing in the viewer at that time. I do see these errors in the viewer during boot.

The Intel(R) Content Protection HDCP Service service terminated with the following error:

Driver ACPI returned invalid ID for a child device (5).

My gfx drivers are up to date.

Just had another reset. found this in the event log

The previous system shutdown at 5:28:26 PM on ‎7/‎10/‎2016 was unexpected.

There is no event at that time, and the one prior to it is:

5:28:07 pm The Program Compatibility Assistant service successfully performed phase two initialization.

Hello All,
I have been through and read the post on people having server execution failed messages, but they all seem to be for Windows Media Player etc. I have yet to find a post for someone having a hard time launching a game.

The game is The Sims 3 and I HAVE played it on my laptop before. In fact I was playing it less than a week ago and it launched just fine. I have made no changes to the game's settings, nor have I installed any new programs on my laptop. I am horribly confused as to why I am getting this error message when I have done nothing (to my knowledge) to change anything that would effect my game launching.

The only change that has been made since the last time I successfully played the game is a Mozilla Firefox update. I highly doubt that this would change a setting somewhere and make my game non-playable. If anyone has any idea of how to help, please let me know. In the meantime I am going to uninstall the game and reinstall it.


A:Server Execution Failed when trying to launch a game

How did the re-installation go? Did it resolve the problem?

If not, try to Troubleshoot Application Conflicts by Performing a Clean Startup to see if you have a service of startup program that is causing conflicts with the game.

So I downloaded a program called key manager specifically to make the controls for this game I play called "Dragon Nest," more comfortable, the program works fine and all EXCEPT for when I launch Dragon Nest, then every button starts to function normally again. Key manager isnt the 1st program ive downloaded btw, ive tried autohotkey, key remapper, and a few others and they all have the same problem. The only things I need to change are: making my middle mouse button "M" my tab button "L" and my caps lock button "TAB," even if this becomes permanent and unfixable I wuldnt really care
Thanks in advance

A:Key remapping stops working when I launch a game

Welcome to TSG!

Does the game it self have a key map option?
Perhaps an ini file or config file that could be modified.

Reading this; http://forum.cherrycredits.com/topic/21022-key-re-mapping-and-scroll-lock-issue/
it seems the game has blocking software for external changes.
So, given that, if you can't change it in game you may not be able to out of game.
