Vista has stopped turning the games run for a long time.

Vista has stopped turning the games run for a long time. The display would go crazy and the sytem would lock. Gotta make a stop with the power button. No errors are recorded. I re-installed the game. Same thing. I reinstalled Vista 64. Same thing. I get about 3 minutes in the game and then locking the. 1 single game still work (BioShock2). COD - MW2 and COD MW lock the sytem. One is direct install, and the other is the steam. I have a video card Nvidia GTX 280 with the latest drivers from Microsoft. Before the reinstall, I tried to install the most recent NVIDIA. Did not help. Yet the locks without showing error. About half of the time it stops at my off video card a few seconds after that the display goes crazy. BioShock uses DirectX 10, and others use DirectX 11. I read on some sites that 11 causes the video crashes on some systems. I want to know is why 11 is working for so long and stop NOW. Is there a way to make the games all run on 10? COD BlackOPS crashes too. I played ALL these games over and over again until the last 3 weeks. If there was some error to post logs I would but there is not. Any suggestions on where to find some kind of problem that could cause this? The video card was removed, cleaned and put back into the computer. Still crashes. 1 in 4 of the games will take place without any problems. 3 will be blocking of the computer and the video trash in 3 minutes or less to start the game. The video is great, until blocking.

Suggestions on how to fix or where to additional troubleshooting for the cause will be greatly appreciated.


Try running the memory and the hard drive scan to make sure that both are good.

If both check good, the map may be at fault. In which case it is overheating you can manually increase the fan speed in the Nvidia Control Panel.

  • My HP pavilion DV7 1245 x with Vista has stopped recognizing the CD.

    When I put a DVD/CD player and click on the disc or the player open, it is said, please insert the disc in the drive.  When I put a CD inside whirs for a little while but when I put a DVD in nothing happens at all.  When I ran FixIt it says fair-media is not readable, but I tried all kinds of DVD and none of them work.

    You have disk problems as the CD/DVD is actually 4 discs in 1 case (CD & DVD burning and)
    Playback of CD and DVD). So it is not unusual for parts from 1 or 2 to not work so that others do

    A CD/DVD cleaner might help.

    Brand of the CD or DVD drive can also be the problem. Low quality (cheap brands) are always problematic.

    CD/DVDs have a tolerance + - and your can read/write on the edge outside these discs
    tolerances. They may be delivered, but it is generally more economical to replace the disk.

    Several good info here:

    Notes on the troubleshooting and repair of readers of compact disks and CD-ROM Drives


    This troubleshooting could not help if there is alignment and/or wear issues however it
    a shot.

    Step 1: Please do all the same underneath if you did some before as is often total
    a process that solves the problem.

    Try this - Panel - Device Manager - CD/DVD - double click on the device - driver tab.
    Click on update drivers (this will probably do nothing) - RIGHT click ON the drive - uninstall.
    RESTART this will refresh the default driver stack. Even if the reader does not appear to continue

    Then, work your way through these - don't forget the drive might be bad, could be a coward
    cable or slight corrosion on the contacts (usually for a laptop) and other issues.

    Another possibility is that the cables are loose. Remove ALL power, then make sure that the cables in both
    ends. Remove and replace, do not just tight. For laptops, you can often clean power and
    contacts data with a pencil eraser.

    Some DVD players do not use the Windows default drivers so check with the manufacturer of system and
    manufacturer of device to see if there is a firmware or drivers for your drive if necessary.


    Step 2: You have disc problems as the CD/DVD is actually 4 discs in 1 case (CD & DVD
    Burn and CD and DVD read). So it is not unusual for 1 or 2 operational so that other parts
    do it right.

    Did you follow the Troubleshooting Guide for the reader who still does not work? There are
    the entries in registry that the troubleshooter does not solve and those who "might" be the cause.

    Check with your Maker system and a device for the two possible firmware updates and
    the correct registry entries for your car.

    Here are the keys that I of course are those in question - for the subkeys of the CD/DVD drive

    the parameters.

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\ {4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}


    You can probably find more info here and maybe even the exact registry for your CD/DVD settings
    drive from someone with the same model.

    CD/DVD units

    Use DevManView to locate the CD/DVD in the registry (be careful and do a prior Restore Point)
    nothing change) - find the DevManView device and then make a right click on it free in RegEdit.

    DevManView - free - an alternative to the standard Windows Device Manager, which displays all the
    devices and their properties in flat table, instead of the tree viewer

    I hope this helps.

  • Windows Media Center has stopped updating the lists Guide for Windows 7

    Windows 10 will go out the next Wednesday July 29, 2015. I have Windows 7 and I have technical problems with the Guide in Windows Media Center lists. This isn't updated Guide lists and I wonder if this problem is related to the upgrade of Windows 10?

    I called a technician to answer Microsoft desktop and the technician fixed my computer errors. Unfortunately, he could not fix this problem. Even though I always reset and auto update of listings in the Guide, the result will prove be the same with "no data."

    Windows Media Center has given me many error messages:

    Windows Media Center

    "Windows Media Center has corrected a problem with your registration data and will download the Guide even once. You should review your records to make sure they are always planned properly. »

    Failed to download

    "The new TV configuration data could not be downloaded. Existing data, if any, will be used as you continue by configuring the TV signal. »

    Downloadable guide is not available

    "Downloadable TV Program Guide listings are not available due to previous failures of download. For more information, right-click on the Windows Media Center system tray icon and open Windows Media Center update log. Select back to try again. You may be able to get the TV show lists, if they are available. »

    Guide download error

    "The Guide could not be downloaded. For more information, then Windows Media Center system tray icon right-click and open Windows Media Center update log. »

    I can watch TV on the computer using Windows Media Center and manually record TV shows, but it is difficult for me to record TV shows without ads Guide on Windows Media Center.

    Note to update (as of August 2, 2015):

    The Electronic Program Guide (EPG) for Windows Media Center Guide ads was already programmed by zap2it until July 21. After July 21, zap2it is no longer can update the lists Guide for Windows Media Center.

    July 23, Rovi Corporation's new Electronic Program Guide (EPG) for Windows Media Center Guide ads.

    From 23 July, listings in Windows Media Center Guide is running back to normal for Windows 7 users.

    My Guide Panel is equipped with a selector more [on the listings in the Guide] where is the expiration date. I hope that Microsoft does not support Windows 7 WMC.

    Please don't waste your time trying to solve the WMC, it is the expiration of the license that is causing the problem. I know it's frustrating.

    On the other hand, is - can anyone say with certainty that WMC is available on Windows 10? No charge for the upgrade to Windows 7?

    The way I see it, not providing the function of key in W7 WMC guide is motivation upgrading to W10, assuming that WMC is available.

    Hopefully Microsoft will give us the fix for WMC in W7.

    This indicates that the patch cannot be applied to your instance. Is this the only patch that you found in the document? He has already worked? Activation of trace and debugging can be useful here.

  • display accessor query runs for a long time with parameters null - JDEV

    I use Jdev

    I have inputVO with the query as

    Select "store", as a double.

    The VO store attribute, I have inputlistofvalues that comes from storesLOVVO, which the query is like

    Select store_name, store_id from all_stores.

    Now I drag store to inputVO on the page of the user interface as inputListofValue. The user selects the value and runs the page and everything goes as you wish and in no time at all.

    Now the user manually removes the selected value from the store of the user interface and clicks a button to deal with something. But instead of calling the method that is present on the actionlistener for this method, the query of storesLOVVO runs on the server (I can see in the newspapers) for a very long time with store_name as null as a condition.

    If I run this query in SQL developer, it gives results in 0.02 sec, even with store_name as null clause added.

    Why jdev performs this LOV VO when there is no parameters?

    And if she runs the VO, why are so slow... its almost take 2 minutes and then the rest of the processing occurs.

  • Toshiba Satellite M60-154: what is the best way for a long service life of a battery?

    Hello Toshiba-users,

    I bought the "Toshiba Satellite M60-154" but I want to use most of the time on the AC adapter.

    I read the manual, but they say nothing about the battery life for people like me who will use the computer power adapter laptop most of the time.

    I would like to know if:

    (1) it is best put the battery inside when I use the laptop on the power adapter for a long time (they say this is not good for the life of the battery when it is fully charged and when he is still in charge...)

    (2) it is best to take the battery when when I use the laptop on the power adapter for a long time and check the battery every week for example to see whether or not it is still loaded (they say it's good for the life of the battery when the battery is fresh off once a week)

    Indeed, what should I do to make sure that the battery will have a long life, knowing that I always use the laptop on the power adapter instead.

    Thanks for the tips

    [Edited by: admin on 28-Sep-05 17:28]


    your info is just. Only put the battery in the laptop, if you want to load or work without mains, to make sure that your battery has a long service life relative.

    Good bye
