Programs Not Displaying On Screen


I just got a brand new computer recently running windows 7 64bit, my screen resolution is 1920x1080 if that helps. My problem is that i go to open a program such as teamspeak 3 it does not show up on the screen. It says its running in the task manager and both the task-bars down the bottom say that the program is open and when i move the cursor over to show the little preview window it shows the preview and you can see it but its not on my desktop at all. Its happened on a number of different things like a word document, and an msn chat window. Would it be hidden like outside of the screen i could see?

Programs Running But Not Displaying

I'm an assistant computer officer at a college and have recently installed windows 7 pro x86 on a new core 2 duo test pc. The pc meets all the requirements easily and usually runs like a dream except that certain programs refuse to load correctly, the processes for the programs run but the actual application window never appears on screen.

No errors are appearing in the event log and there seems to be no correlation other than it mainly happens with genuine microsoft programs. Two of the main culprits being windows system image manager and the computer management console. Even the setup program for the windows aik has refused to open now.

Monitor Not Displaying On All The Screen

I have just completed the windows 7 home premium upgrade (from windows vista home premium) on my dell studio xps 16 laptop. Everything has gone smoothly except now, when i connect my laptop to my dell sw2409w 24" monitor (via hdmi), i'm having a small issue. While windows does indeed detect the monitor type correctly and sets the resolution to 1920x1080, it doesn't fill up the entire screen. There is a 1-2" black space all the way around the outside.

I initially went into the monitor settings (using the buttons on the monitor) to auto-adjust the screen settings, but they're all disabled in hdmi mode. The monitor works perfectly with my other computer, and the screen on the laptop is fine too. I've updated the monitor driver, as well as the driver for my video card (ati mobility radeon hd 4670).

Any suggestions?

Aero Taskbar Thumbnails Not Displaying Preview

I recently purchased a new laptop with windows 7 running on windows 64-bit os. For some of the applications, the thumbnail previews on the taskbar work great (outlook, ie 8), but others do not. Whenever i open more than one file in an application, the thumbnail display only shows a rectangle with that application's logo in the middle of the box. Can anyone help me understand why this feature works for some applications, but not others, and how to fix this? I've tried all the standard remedies (choosing aero theme, etc. ) To no avail.

Blue Screen Error After Installed Programs

Blue screen error- the deadly one !I'm using windows seven home premium 64-bit. 4 gb ram. 512 mb nvidia. Laptop model- lenovo g560i keep getting blue screens at least twice a week and i don't know why. I had installed fifa 2010 and after that problems started coming up. The game started crashing. I had also installed itunes yesterday and after that i saw the second blue screen coming up. I also installed device drivers for the ipod nano 16 gb. And also, after that, windows explorer has started acting like crazy.

It keeps crashing. When i try to find a solution through the action centre, it shows that iit could not reach the server, although i am connected. Please help guys. It does not feel nice to see blue screens so often. Is it a problem of windows 7? (The compatibility issue?). Because most of the programs i use are 32-bit or 84-bit most of them migrated from windows xp home edition.

Windows Media Player 12 Makes Screen Flicker In Programs

Windows media player 12 in windows 7 makes the screen "flicker" in some programs. I recently installed windows 7 home premium (x64 bit version) on my main computer, and so far am loving it. Recently however, as i've reinstalled many of the programs i had on my previous xp install, i started noticing this strange white flickering in some full-screen programs which seemed fairly random.

The game space empires: v, published by strategy first, is the most striking example i have found. Changing the program to run in windowed mode fixes the problem, but then i'm stuck with a window at 1024 x 768 resolution (can't be changed), which is a bit hard to see on my native monitor resolution of 1680 x 1050, not to mention aero cuts down on the performance by a fairly large chunk.

The problem seemed to come and go randomly until i noticed one common variable: i always had wmp open and playing music in the background whenever it happened. Closing wmp and running the program solved the problem every time. I've tried reinstalling wmp, reinstalling the other program, trying every graphical option in the program, all to no avail.

I'm using windows media player version 12. 0. 7600. 16415, and windows 7 x64 bit with all updates installed. This isn't the first major problem i've encountered with this version of wmp either, i can count at least 3 others, but nothing as annoying or disruptive as this.

Usb Hub Displaying As Device In Device Manager

Pretty much all my device connected to my usb hub used to show in device manager as separate devices. However, they now only show under the name "kevin o'connor" (the name of my zune). Open the device's properties and going to the hardware tab will show all the device connected via the usb hub.

Therefore, all the devices do in fact work, it's just a little bothersome to me, and the fact that i can't safely remove anything from the hub without having to eject the entire hub. Here's a screen shot that shows what the hub shows as: http://i34. Tinypic.com/34fxmp4.png

Office 2007 Programs Do Not Appear In Default Programs List

I have both openoffice.org and microsoft office 2007 installed on my windows 7 computer and i would like to use microsoft office as the default for all files it can open but it does not appear in the default programs list.

In fact, except for microsoft office outlook, none of my microsoft office 2007 applications appear in the default programs list!

Openoffice.org does appear, and when i click on it in the list and click choose defaults for this program many of the defaults are already set to the equivalent microsoft office application. But there are some associations (such as text files) that are not correctly associated, and possibly others that i don't know about. I'd like to click on microsoft word and then click set this program as default so that it will automatically open all the files it can.

Using On-screen Keyboard To Print Screen

Well, firstly, thanks for making the onscreen keyboard so much bigger and more usable in w7 compared to xp. All good, until you need to "print screen", at which point you get an enormous section of the screen that you don't want - i.e. The new enlarged virtual keyboard.

So, is there a way to use the onscreen keyboard to print just the screen and not itself - sort of like you would get if it really was a keyboard - imagine how annoying it would be for all users if every time they used that function it inserted a nice big picture of your real keyboard over what you actually wanted. This has been a problem with xp, now a bigger one - 4 times as big in fact, with w7.

All Programs Not Responding

All programs say "not responding" on my new laptop. I have an acer aspire 5532 i bought in march of 2010. I have no viruses and have tried everything to fix this issue. I use my laptop for online classes and it has became a hassle. Windows media player will say not responding, even playing games will say it and the internet does it also. I have disabled add ons and have performed about every task i can.

Programs Not Responding

Im running windows 7 ultimate 32 bit i started getting a not responding message a few months a go for only a few seconds when i tried to open projects in cubase 5. Now i cant even get the projects to open, my computer gets stuck running with (not responding) showing and it never recovers. I tried running ccleaner, updates, latest bios, driver updates but to no avail. Im not getting a clear answer on this problem. Ive searched forums for the last two days. Is there a solution or just speculation, oh and companies trying to sell registry tools. Which don't work by the way either.

All Programs Are Inaccessible

All of my programs have turned into a windows media player format and icon, meaning all my programs are inaccessible. I have recently purchased a new dell laptop. It has all the latest features such as, windows 7, norton 360 virus protection 2010 all running and updated and other important programs.

All of a sudden my computer went black and all my icons had become a windows media player format and icon. Should i remove windows media player? Or should i restore all of my files and programs back to factory default setting or before its too late, can you help me? How did this bug get on my computer?, Could i have done this accidentally?, How did the problem originate?, Why did it come? How can i stop this from happening again? How can i get rid of the problem?

Disappearing Programs

I have yet been able to regularly duplicate this problem, but it seems to happen to me at least once a day. I did a clean install of w7rc on a fresh hard drive and everything installed fine. However, occasionally i will click a program on my task bar and it will way it's not there and ask me if i want to delete the shortcut. If i go to the start bar, there are no programs and the only thing i can do it shut down. I'm uncertain if microsoft is finding this issue as i receive no apparent error. Upon rebooting, everything is fine. Like i said, i don't know how to reproduce it as it seems to have no trend towards doing a specific operation, but it seems to happen to me at least once a day.

Where Do I Install My Programs To?

I am building a simple installer for some software that i want to install on some of the computers here at work. I'm using a very simple open source installation program, and it wants me to set the default installation directory where the software i have written should be installed. The computers at work are a mix of windows xp, vista and soon windows 7 computers. I have been installing to c:program files before, and that's been working fine.

But since vista came out, its been a bit unpredictable. I understand there is something to do with 'virtualization' of folders, which i don't really understand, and i also believe that this has all changed again with windows 7.

Is there some 'best practice' guide for where to install programs to?  The users who will be installing the software are just regular computer users (ie. Not administrators) and therefore i need a solution that works on all platforms and is safe and won't create security issues.

Cant Install Any New Programs

For some reason every time i go to install something new, ie quick time, java or itune, my computer is telling me i cant install something until i complete the installation currently in progress. The thing is, i have no idea what is in progress, and have had this problem for almost a month. I*ve restarted my computer and even done system restores to try and clear it up. I also cannot uninstall programs. I was wondering if anyone could tell me how to pinpoint exactly where or what the installation may be. Or if there is something i can do to cancel all current installations.

Programs Keep Freezing

Ive seen that a lot of people are having problems with windows 7 constantly freezing up. I have a retail version of the windows 7 and im having that exact problem. I cant believe there is no answer for the problem, but its very aggravating to spend so  much on a computer + a video card and not be able to use them. The ie and firefox constantly freeze up when i try and upload videos, itunes will not play anything even though i reboot the system , and when i try to play any game it freezes as well. If someone can help me tell me what i need to do please!

Deleting Programs

When trying to install windows 7, an error message appeared saying, "windows vista home premium cannot be upgraded to windows 7 professional. You can choose to install a new copy of windows 7 professional instead, but this is different from an upgrade, and does not keep your files, settings, and programs. You'll need to reinstall any programs using the original installation discs or files. To save your files before installing windows, back them up to an external location such as a cd, dvd, or external hard drive. To install a new copy of windows 7 professional, click the back button in the upper left-hand corner, and select "custom (advanced)". "

So im guessing this will clear my laptop. Is there any way i can get windows 7 and still retain the programs i have now?

Cannot Use Programs That Use Directx

For some reason i can't use most of the programs on my computer. I just get an error message when i open them. While i can't identify what's wrong, i've noticed a pattern: the ones that don't work all use directx in one way or another. Here's a list of some of the programs that don't work, along with error messages: steam (says something about running in compatibility mode [even though i'm not])windows live messenger (nothing happens after trying to open)borderlands ("the application was unable to start correctly (0xc00000005). ")Quake shareware version("this system does not support full-screen mode.

Click close to terminate the program. ")Ms office powerpoint 2007 (crashes when i try to use an animation)game maker 8 ("runtime error 216 at 00404596")many cam 2. 4 (crashes when i try using video as a source)most games preinstalled on windows 7 (crashes when opening, internet games work for some reason)adobe premiere pro cs3 ("adobe premiere pro could not load any audio drivers.

Please reinstall adobe premiere pro. ")Directx diagnostic tool (crashes when attempting to access system information, directsound, &directshow)i've tried system restore, uninstalling some of the programs and reinstalling others, replacing my video card, but it still doesn't work. I've also attempted to reinstall directx, but it crashes in the middle of installation. I noticed the installer created an text file called "dxerror" that says this:

-
