Preferred Solution: Help with krita, OpenGL 2.0 or higher

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 just recently bought myself a new graphics card, GeForce 6 6600LE 256 mb DDR AGP8X 128 bit, abd got a free game with it called riddick, but when i try to play it the error message...

Q: krita

I have a windows 10, touchscreen HP laptop and when I use the the brush, it won't let me use my finger to draw, it lets me use it in the instant preview, but when I select the brush the cursor doesn't move at all. Any other tool, i.e. Calligraphy, Ellipse, etc. can be selected, and drawn onscreen by my finger and/or a digital stylus. Is there a way I can fix this?


Hi, What is your machine ? Touchscreen and digitized screen are two different things. You need a screen which supports the second function and the right software (including drivers) to be able to do that. Nearly all digitized screens are touchscreens but not another way around. Regards.

I have this new PC:
CPU: I-5 2500 (without the 'k') @ 3.3Ghz
GPU: ASUS GTX 580 direct cu II overclocked to 878 Mhz
Motherboard: Intel DH67CL
RAM: APACER 8GB DDR3 @ 1333 Mhz

I was trying to play Rome: Total War (a game made way back in 2004) at max settings and at 1600x900 resolution (which is the max resolution of my monitor) and I get an average framerate of 20 fps, often even lower. So I checked GPU usage during the game, turns out it never reached 20%. But when I lowered the graphics settings, the fps immediately jumped to 60. As far as I can tell from task manager, there seems to be high CPU usage during gaming, but it doesn't tell how much exactly. So does this mean higher graphics settings require faster CPU clocks and not just a faster GPU? Or does it just mean there's a stability problem with my PC that's affecting its performance?

A:Do you need higher CPU speed to play at higher graphics settings in games?

What power supply do you have?

I plan to transfer a JPEG to a CF card to take to Wal-Mart to have 5" x 7" prints made. This JPEG was scanned from a 35mm slide and saved as a TIFF. I saved it further as a JPEG in two sizes: 5332 x 3664 and 980 x 673.

If I were to have two 5 x 7's made, one from the larger JPEG and one from the smaller JPEG, would there be a discernible difference in quality between the prints? How about if I were to have two 4 x 6 prints made? Or two 8 x 10s? Wouldn't I be able to tell the difference more in a larger print? It seems to me, theoretically, that a print made from a 5332 x 3664 file would turn out sharper than one made from a 980 x 673 file. However, if I wouldn't be able to tell the difference, then of course I'd prefer working with the smaller files.

A:Does higher resolution (JPEG) result in higher quality prints?

I always assumed that I had OpenGL on my computer, and that it was some plugin or driver or something that allowed my video card to display graphics that were made with OpenGL (Like certain games contain). Recently I was having problems with a program and someone suggested that I change my video card's OpenGL setting buffer flipping mode to "block tranfer" and set the memory used to 32 or less. I didn't know where to find my OpenGL settings. It looks like it's not even on my computer, but I do have GLExcess, which I can't figure out how to use (Or what it is for). The fact that he said my "video card's OpenGL settings" makes me think that my video card has OpenGL settings as though it expects me to have OpenGL (Is it even a program you download, or is it inherent in most video cards?). What are these two programs, and where can I download OpenGL (If I am supposed to, and, if not, where are my OpenGL settings on my computer?). I am confused. Thanks for any help!

A:What exactly is OpenGL and GLExcess? I need to change my OpenGL options.

which in your opinions is better? a higher resolution and lower textures and details or lower resolution, but higher textures and details. the highest resolution i am able to achieve is 1366x768. so nothing past there

A:Higher Resolution or higher texture/detail?

Well to be honest you're making a sacrifice in either scenario.

Is this particular to a game you're playing? If so, what game? If it's a general question I'd have to say higher resolution with lower details etc. because at the very least a higher resolution allows for greater overall detail.

Depending on the game, of course.

Hi there,
Hope you guys can help with this. Win 7 Ultimate x64. After booting up and working for a while, the keyboard response will slow down (i.e. you type characters and they don't show up on the screen for up to 30 seconds). Same issue with mouse. So I started monitoring the system and discovered that this happens when explorer.exe uses a lot of CPU resources.
On boot-up, explorer.exe is using about 0.5% of CPU. But as time goes on and I keep working, it starts to use more and more CPU. Eventually, it can get up to 35-40%. When it gets high, that is when the keyboard/mouse response slows down. So I tried this: I opened a Notepad window while monitoring explorer.exe CPU usage. Then I started typing random characters very fast. When I do this, explorer CPU usage drops to less than 1% and the keyboard response returns to normal. However, when I stop typing, the explorer.exe CPU usage immediately starts to go up again. Eventually, it becomes unmaneagable, and I have to reboot. I tried ending and restarting explorer.exe but it made no difference.
It would appear that explorer.exe is running some kind of background task which is consuming much more resources than it should.
You Bleeper guys have any good ideas?
Thanks a bunch,

I've been having a problem recently with my volume on my laptop, a HP M6-1125dx. I have noticed that slowly over the course of a few days I have to keep turning the volume up higher and higher to have the same volume come out of the speakers. I used to consistantly be able to keep my volume around 15, but now I''m having to turn it up to 40 or 50 after a few days. It goes back to normal after a restart though (even a 'soft' restart) and then blows out my ears because either I've forgotten to turn it down before restarting or windows did it to me automatically.
Does anyone have any ideas what could be causing this? I have no idea where I should start since I couldn't find info of anyone having a similar problem.

A:Running Fan higher and higher

Your computer might be overheating. Open the side panel and check for dust.

Read other 2 answers

This has been happening for around 3 days. When I start the computer (desktop) up, the rpm is normal but it slowly starts to speed up. After around 5 minutes, the fan starts moving at a average of 4000rpm and it's really starting to worry me.
I thought it might have been something to do with dust inside the heatsink so I cleaned the dust with a vaccum cleaner. After that, it still wouldn't slow down so I changed the thermal paste. It now slows down a bit but still run at the average of 4000rpm.
I also tweaked with the bios a bit but still no luck.

A:cpu fan rpm slowly gets higher and higher

I can't get Open GL applications run on my asus eee pc 1001p. It has an Intel graphics media accelerator 3150.

I tried
-all os compatibility modes
-running it as administrator
-disabling aero
-disabling desktop composition

I also downloaded the latest driver from Intel, installed it, rebooted. It shows OpenGL dialogs exactly like these Graphics — OpenGL* Settings Guide. But the OpenGL apps just won't run.

I tried an OpenGL benchmark, Blender, Anim8or and Silo. They don't show any 3d picture, just a black or transparent window.

DirectX applications run fine, e.g. Truespace.

What can I try?

Thanks a lot

A:OpenGL on eee Pc

The Intel graphics media accelerator 3150 in the ASUS Eee PC 1001P
only supports OpenGL upto and including version OpenGL 1.5. This is most likely the issue. Most software require at least OpenGL 2.

Now can you be good enough to explain what is OpenGL and why my Intel board (G43\45 Chip set board) and graphic accelerator not supporting OpenGL?

A:what is OpenGL

OpenGL is a graphics engine used by some games such as Call of Duty. It is not widely used anymore but most mainboards made from late 2007 support it. The problem normally appears from Nvidia graphics cards and the solution is not to install the latest drivers, but install an earlier one. v77.77 seems to work fine if you encounter this problem with an Nvidia card

Disabling triplebuffering in the ati CCC may give you slightly better overall frames.
The dips will likely continue to occur though, the power of your graphics card isn't even really an issue.
