Shockwave Error When Playing Games Online Or Watching Movies


Okay, i am having a huge issue with my windows 7 operating system. I recently upgraded from windows vista to 7 via the disk dell sent me. I got my operating system free because i purchased after a certain date. Everything worked fine for the first week then i started experiencing error that i cannot seem to find if anyone else has had similar problems. Now i had to do a system roll back, but guess what i still have the problem.

I rolled back to when my shockwave player was working and it continued to not work. Everytime i try to play an online flash game my shockwave fails critically. Even on movies sometimes i am using a dell studio xps 16, with a mobility radeon t9550 at 2. 67 ghz processor speed. There are no problems with my graphics card for it worked for maybe 20 minutes then messed up again. I reinstalled shockwave and still problems. I don't have a virus, i use kaspersky internet security 2010, and it works fine.

Mouse Issues While Playing Games

I used to run windows vista 64 bit home premium on this laptop, but ever since upgrading to windows 7 64 home premium, i've noticed issues with my mouse. Primarily while i'm playing a game, it will have these moments where the mouse will either become completely unresponsive, or while i'm turning ((usually in first person games)) that it'll look like my screens clipping horribly, i can't control it. It tends to happen every 2 to 3 minutes or so, it's very consistent, but it only lasts for about 3 or 4 seconds. Even in this short window that it happens however, it ruins whatever i'm doing at the moment, it's extremely frustrating. Has anybody else had this issue or does somebody know what i can do to rectify this issue?

Bsod Related With Dxgmms1 When Playing Games Using 8gb Ram

I just built a brand new computer when a fresh install of windows 7 home ultimate 64 bit. This computer has never had any other os on it. I am having an issue when playing dragon age origins that the computer with bsod when i have 8 gb of ram in the computer. With only 4 gb in, the computer is rock solid.

I have tested all the ram in memtest86 overnight with no issues. I have tried different sets of the 4 gb and they all work fine. The problem is when i try to use 8 gb. I think the are the most important components. I have installed all windows updates, have the latest mobo bios, and the latest video drivers.

Online Printer Not Recognized As Online

I recently upgraded to windows 7 professional from vista business. After upgrade, i was able to access a wireless hp c4380 series multi function printer thru my lan. Now for some reason, i can not longer print to this printer. When i run the troubleshooter, it tells me the printer is off line and to turn on the printer.

I have turned it off and back on and it still shows up as offline, both in the troubleshooter and in the control panel device window. I have not made any other changes to the computer or installed any new hardware or software. It just stopped working one morning.

I checked the router via my admin access and all devices are visible to the router. So why is the printer not visible as online to windows 7, all of a sudden. As i said, it worked for weeks, now it is invisible.

Unable To Save Movies To Laptop

I have been trying to transfer some info from my panasonic vdr_d160 camcorder. At first i tried via usb, although the laptop recognized that there was a device windows media player wouldn't allow me to view or tnfr. I have now inserted the disk after formatting it in the camcorder. I can see and view the videos however i want to copy these onto the play lists so i can burn scenes to dvd later and it wont allow me.

Is there any other way i can transfer data from the dvd disk so i can use this later for burning to dvd? I'm very new at this.

Ok i have now figured out to connect the camcorder via the usb, go into windows movie maker and select 'import from device'. Now i've done this but it seems that out of the 1hr video i imputed i have about 30 secs of video in the movie maker. It seems to have forgotten most of it and it took longer to import than the video there. This is getting really frustrating as i am hoping to make a video of my late grandfather for my grandmother and the scene's i seem to have lost are the ones featuring him!

Live Movie Maker - Movies Have No Sound

I upgraded from windows vista home premium to windows 7 home premium. I downloaded and installed windows live movie maker from download.live.com as instructed. Previous movies which were completed and in progress in the former vista program now have no sound other than added music when opened with windows live movie maker. The same individual video's taken from these movies when opened in windows live movie maker as a "new project" have sound. I don't wish to have to edit all my previous movies.

P. S: haven't tried the back-up files from external hard drive as yet, too scared that i might lose sound on these files as well.

Watching Internet Tv

Can someone please tell me how to watch internet tv through windows media center? Everytime i click on a pre-recorded show (like the andy griffith show for example), it says: video not available at this time or is being blocked by ad blocker in your browser. If blockage is the problem, how do i unblock it. I know i can watch shows thru fancast, etc. , But since i've paid for this new computer i believe i should be able to enjoy it through whatever function i choose. I feel i'm getting jipped (don't know if word is spelled correctly).

Tcp Error - Unable To Play Games

Tcp errors. Currently my tcp ports on my computer do not work for any of my games when i ping the game specifically byond.com it shows a connection within 80 sec the fastest time. I run on windows xp iv tried port checking with multiple sites and all answer the same with port refused connection. I have went through multiple processes to fix the problem by going to internet provider and my router provider. I run on several different ports that i opened through port triggering with netgear and none of them work but the udp does.

I was wondering if anyone could have the answer on how to solve this problem with my tcp ports so i can go back to my game programing.

I only started having this problem 2 days ago (7/11/10) also when i play games like hearts and solitaire, i get this message that the the hardware driver is turned off. I have no idea what happened. This all started after restarting my computer after downloading some updates and it completely changed all of my settings. I have tried to restore the system, but it too keeps failing. I am at my wits end.

External Hard Drive Connection Was Lost While Watching Video

I was watching a video from one of my external hard drives. Halfway through the video, the hard drive's usb connection was lost. Some data was lost and i can't access one of my folders that also has videos in it. Thank goodness i have back-up drives which.

I don't connect but once a week so i didn't lose too much data. All of my other hard drives are fine. I have three main external hard drives connected by way of a 13 port usb hub which is then connected to my computer "dell xps 720". I'm running windows 7 64 bit. I then have three more back-up drives which i don't turn on until i'm ready to do back-ups which i am afraid of doing for fear of losing more data if another drive disconnects. To bring the drive back up i turned it off waited 10 secs and turned it back on.

I was able to restore all the data but one folder that says "f:"directory name" is not accessible. The file or directory is corrupted and unreadable. " I'm not sure what i should do with that directory. This never happened under windows xp. I do like the way windows 7 looks, but there are other problems that i have which i will not put in this post. I think i will connect all of my drives to an xp machine and do my back-ups and keep my back-up drives disconnected from windows 7 unless someone has an explaination for this. This is the first time it has happened.

Cannot Connect To Online Help

Whenever i search for help, i get the message "you are not connected to online help". I have set the options so that i should be. There is nothing wrong with my internet connection and this happens all the time. I am using microsoft security essentials and i would expect windows firewall to let it's own program communicate. I changed my router and had online help for about a day. When my computer downloaded the latest update from windows, (which was just supposed to be a verification program - my copy of windows 7 is legit, i got vista with this computer and upgraded to windows 7 through hewlet packard), online help stopped working.

I did a system restore to before i installed the update and online help was back. I downloaded  the windows cleanup utility and got rid of what was left of a previously installed version of symantec internet security, and online help was gone again. I tried doing a system restore to before i downloaded and used the cleanup utility, but now online help won't come back. What change are these programs making that affects my ability to use online help, and how do i fix it?

Playing Itunes On Media Player

What is the procedure for getting my itunes to show & play with windows media player? Some albums are visible and i have no problem playing them or sync-ing them with my cell phone that is running 6. 5. However the majority of the albums i can not figure out how to get them and all of their songs to be visible in wmp. In some cases, only 1 or 2 songs out of the album will be visible.

I have searched and can not find any distinction between the itunes albums/songs that are visible in wmp and those that are not. I have tried everything that i can think of in terms of sharing and folder/library settings, but nothing seems to work. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Bsod 0x1e When Playing Media

I'm using win7 home premium 64-bit. About 80% - 90% of the time i try to play a media file my machine goes bsod with code 0x1e. This happens with all types video formats when played in vlc or window media player locally, and when playing streaming video online using either explorer or firefox. It's even happened a few times while surfing and downloading.

Winamp plays mp3's and shoutcast tv with no problems. The last 8 crash dumps all indicate stop code 0x1e with 0's in all 4 parameter fields, however, the source varies: hal.dll, ndis.sys, ntoskrnl, and dxgkrnl.sys. When i was using winxp and win7 rc with the same hardware i never had a problem. All my 64-bit drivers and applications are up to date. Any ideas?

Problem Recording & Playing Sound

I have a gateway nv53 notebook with windows 7 home prem. I installed ventrilo, and i sounded choppy to everyone. This set off several weeks of trouble shooting and tinkering with every possible combination of settings i could find, and nothing helped. I was sure there was some problem with some setting on vent, but i decided to try using the sound recorder under accessories and playing it back with wmp. Every recording i made (10 total, about 1 min long each) came through horribly choppy. I would sound normal and clear for about 5 seconds, then there would be a quick clicking sound where you couldn't hear anything i was saying, and after that i would sound extremely low. Then another clicking sound and i sound normal for a second before another clicking sound puts me back low or sometimes ridiculously loud. I tried my external mic, which works perfect on other computers, and the built-in mic on the notebook. I don't know where to go from here. I don't know if i should be trying to update some drivers or codecs or what?

Assassins Creed 1 Not Playing Full Screen

I have an amd 3. 2 quad with a 5770ati graphics card all my gaming graphics is great, and all my other games run to full screen with no boarders (stretch from graphics card is ok). Oh an windows 7, great. My problem is only with assassins 1 which seems to run with a windows boarder of some type that i don't recognize, it has in the top left corner a white rectangle with a small blue square in the middle an to the right of that the name assassins creed.

The bottom also has the task bar, the best i can do to make it full screen is right click on the top bar an hit move then just click the bottom bar an the task bar disappears but the top one remains.

An if i go to close to the top during a game with my right mouse button on the move box comes up again. I don't know if this problem is with the game or a windows setting, i'm not very good with my new computer or windows yet.

Not Able To View Online Videos

Problem viewing internet videos, i recently purchased a toshiba satellite laptop with windows 7 (including wmp) installed. My browser is internet explorer. When i try to watch video on news channels (or youtube, or any other medium), the video will often stop midway, or after several seconds, and never resume. One channel prompted me to download flash player, which i did, but it has made no difference. The only system protection i have installed is microsoft security essentials. I've read several of the other posts which seem related to this, but they don't seem to have the answer i need. I'd sure appreciate any advice to address this problem.
