Games and others will not work! Help!

So I have a new HP Pavilion Elite, and I can connect to the internet just fine. But when I download programs on the net, they install but when I opened them, they do not work. I've done all I can with my firewall let run programs, but it still won't work. I have added the ports and everything. Now I get pretty irritated because I just spent all this money on this computer and the _ won't even on that... I'm starting to think I should have bought a mac...

Hi Pepe0814,

Thank you for using Microsoft Vista Forum responses

I would like to know if you are running the game after you apply the patch for the game or using the CD/DVD set directly.

With the information I have at the moment, you can try the following steps:

1. Please open Run > type SFC/scannow, and then press ENTER.
2. turn off the proxy settings that you might have.
On the contrary, please reset the default Internet options.
3. you can probably uninstall the security software installed on the computer because disabling
them may not always work as there are services that run in the background...

Let us know if it helps.

Thank you and best regards,

    You can try to use iTunes to restore your device from a backup

    The SIM card is not support indicates that the iPhone is locked to the American carrier that it has been activated with. In order to obtain the released lock it is necessary that you talk to the carrier to find out what their requirements are to release the lock. They are the only ones who unlock it so that it can be used with another carrier.

  • CIV V doesn't throw and dxdiag will not work.

    I'm one of the (many) people who cannot launch Civ V.  I installed it as good of the steam and out of the box and it will not just run.  It is not even really trying; He takes me to the screen that allows you to choose the version of directx 9 or directx 10/11.  No matter who I choose, it blocks immediately.

    When I tried to solve the problems, I've updated all my drivers and attempted to run dxdiag.  The exact message I get is:

    C:\Windows\SysWOW64\dxgi.dll is not designed to run on Windows or it contains an error.  Try to install the program by using the original installation media or contact your system administrator or the provider of software for support.

    Note that this is similar to an error, I met once or twice when troubleshooting civ V and try to open the program in unorthodox way.

    Help, please!  This match was expensive and now that I have opened I don't know they won't let me go back lol.

  • I use Mac OS 10.4.11 and after downloading firefox 4.0, I get a circle + bar symbol oblique covering the logo of firefox - and it will not work after copy in my applications folder. What is the problem? Had to reinstall 3.6

    I followed the instructions on the screen to download firefox 4.0. After the launch of the dmg image in the window of firefox dmg is the symbol of firefox with a "do not go" symbol on it (for example as a sign of the universal movement for "don't go this way" - red red circle with a diagonal line). "

    Copied on ANYWAY - which was stupid - and he says: "Cannot open the application"Firefox"because it is not supported on this system."

    I couldn't find documentation saying my OS has not been supported by firefox 4.0.

    Is there away around this problem?

    Firefox 4 will not work on OS X 10.4, it requires at least OS X 10.5 and an Intel Mac.

    There is an accumulation of third party that runs under OS X 10.4 and Mac PPC, for more details, see http://www.floodgap.com/software/tenfourfox

  • Boot Camp keyboard and trackpad will not work. They do in Fusion

    Hello

    I have a problem with my VM ware / boot camp of activation. I have a Boot Camp partition on my Macbook Pro. I am able to boot the disc using the fusion, but when I try to use Boot Camp coming to the windows activation screen and my keyboard and mouse do not work so I can't press the button to continue. I tried to boot into safe mode on boot camp and the keyboard and mouse are not recognized either. I tried to plug in a keyboard and a USB mouse generic and is not no longer works. I am running XP pro (not OEM version).

    Does anyone have any suggestions on a cure?

    Hi tsugua,

    This sounds like it may be more than one Apple, or Microsoft problem. However, my recommendation would be to ensure that the leopard drivers have been properly installed. To install the insert drivers your Leopard installation disc and run the setup.exe if is not autorun. So, make sure you run software updates of the Mac OS to ensure you have the latest version of the Bootcamp drivers.

    Let me know if this helps.

  • Upgrade Windows 7 to Windows 10 and Thunderbird will not work. SOLVED was not logged as an administrator

    On my laptop, conversion of Windows 8 to 10 was fine and Thunderbird has worked without any problems. On the computer of my wife who was on Windows 7, Thunderbird does not work. Thanks to this forum I could check that all emails and addresses etc. have been copied across, but Thunderbird asks me to put in place the new account because it does not acknowledge my previous POP and other parameters. Bloody Microsoft. Can anyone help?

    I have found the answer - default (why?) I was connected as administrator and therefore was not seeking the e-mail account of my wife in the same way as it would. The search in all the files and directories of profile TB, I found a test directory, where TB was given to me. Do not know what other tricks that I solved the problem, but it is all working now. And people spend their entire lives on such things?

    is the audio hardware id: HDAUDIO\FUNC_01 & VEN_1002 & DEV_AA01 & SUBSYS_104D4600 & REV_1002

    now, this seems to be for ati hdmi driver 6.0.1.6121 that I tried but does not work, ive tried to use genius driver, Driver Verifier, and magician pilot with no luck. Ive tried a sony driver, called audio_hdmi 6.0.1.5992

    They both install fine but the lappy does not recognize an installed audio device, the generic microsoft driver does not work either

    for usb I'm not sure what is wrong, as the left hand esata port side works very well I can put my usb pen in and it works fine. There are 3 right of the lappy usb ports which do not at all, in Device Manager I have:

    generic usb hub

  • Dell Dimension 9200. The orange light flashes. Power disconnect day + this market but stop and it will not work unless that unplugged for a day

    Flashes orange and no lights on the front panel next to the USB ports. (see amber light on motherboard, power button / stop 15 sec + he disappears, but the computer does not start, a few times the fan turned on couple seconds), initially it used to go in the cycle (starts for about 3-5 seconds and stops) several times and the flashing yellow light.

    If I unplug the power cord for a day + and try, it worked, stop and restart immediately worked too but when I shutdown and come after a few hours, it will not start again (power plugged).
    Disconnect the power supply for a day + new and it worked once tried.

    I did the reset by pressing the power button / 15 sec + but no luck. Until a day + unplugged worked so far about three times will try again tomorrow and see what happens if I don't stop the computer ever.

    What a PSU or of the motherboard problem or some other problem? Hope it can be fixed.

    A flashing orange power LED, usually indicates a power supply problem power, given the age of the Dimension 9200, which is highly likely.

    Try to replace the power supply with a power supply of labour "Known", to see if that makes a difference.

    This system does not use an exclusive power of Dell, you can install most power supply ATX with a power connector 24 pin or 20 + 4 pin main motherboard and this can be purchased in most local computer stores, or online.

    The 9200 has a rear panel open, a diet with or without the on/off switch can be installed.

    Note: You need a PSU with six SATA power connectors.

    Otherwise, you can buy a refurbished Dell OEM [Dell P/N KH624] 375w PSU from here:

  • Since 2015.1 updated some .mov and other will not import video files

    Since the update to 2015.1 some of my mov files from various sources (some exported out of first, a lot are a set of overlays of light leak that I downloaded) will not import into first.  He said: "no Audio or Video Stream Found."  Well, I can open and play them in Quicktime or VLC, and I used them in my projects from before the update.  If I open an old project that contained these. MOV files (and it worked very well) that they are now offline.  If I try to make a link to the error, even.  I tried the old trick to change the directory where they are and cleaning, then my cache of media (have had problems with.) MTS files in the work stop spent) but no luck.  "No audio or video track not found) even if it is obvious that they still exist."  I have almost no extra codecs or anything of this nature installed, so no conflict.  Ugh.  Anyone else run into this?  Someone at - it a difficulty in addition to transcoding know everything?

    Well, I'm happy to report that I was wrong, and it was NO fault of Adobe Premiere.  I still have some other problems with the first update, but this problem was actually the result of my uninstall iTunes, which caused an error in Quicktime.

    When I started reading other peoples problems and reduced my problem until ProRes video and AAC audio, I found a few others who have said that they were having problems with Quicktime.  So I open Quicktime and tried to play the MOV files (usually use VLC Player) and of course, he could not play because "software of Apple service something or other assistance" has not been installed, the result of my uninstall iTunes, I assume (I had done this at the time I improved the first).  So, I installed a new Quicktime layer, and everything is back to working normally again!

    Sorry I have been quick to point the finger at Adobe, although the latest few have caused their share of questions for me, giving me reason to doubt.  In this case, however, it's for lack of my own/Apple.
