  • VM hung due to a problem with the virtual processor


    Has anyone faced with the following question?

    I use ESXi 5.0. I have several virtual machines run on the ESXi server. There is a virtual machine hung 2 times this month. I had to restart the vSphere Client Console.

    I saw this strange event message in the event tab of ESXi host for this virtual machine:

    Error stack:
    Click OK to restart the virtual machine or Cancel to turn off the virtual machine.
    An error has occurred causing a virtual CPU go into the stop State. If this anomaly had occurred outside of a virtual machine, it would have caused the physical machine restart. The stop State are accessible by properly configuring the virtual machine, a bug in the guest operating system or a problem in VMware ESX.

    Thank you!

  • I have a problem when using Google Maps, at a certain point my custards computer window and says there is a problem with the display drivers and he recovered, but it is not. Problem does not occur with Int Explorrer, so I don't think it's the computer

    When using google maps via Firefox, after asking a place which is not the General section of North America who comes up regularly, the firefox screen becomes white with a narrow banner at the top. A message appears in the lower right corner that says something on display drivers having had a problem, but now have been recovered. However, the display is not recover and the message of the banner is that Firefox is not responding. When I go to restart Firefox if I'm about to restore, the page is still frozen.
    I don't think there is a problem with my computer because it doesn't happen if I used to go to google maps, then G-cards works normally.
    This phenomenon didn't happen before the last update Google or Firefox. I used Fiefox for some years and also Google Maps on previous computers and on this one and not had it before.
    It is a relatively young computer (Asus EeSlate 121) less than a year. I have used Firefox since I bought it and until recently had no problem with Google Maps.

    I solved it myself, after the 'note' that was FF/Mozilla, just as I finished my message, commenting on what it was that my system was, I wnnt back to check my plug-ins, etc. I downloaded the latest Java, the TWO 32-bit AND 64-bit versions and latest Firefox.
    Now everything works.
    Thank you

  • Problems with the current time of the progress bar reading

    First of all, a terminology.

    As Adobe Flash Player is about to play a video, it shows a spinning icon in the center of the video window.  I've seen web pages which call it the beach of rotation ball.  I'll call it simply as the icon of "spinning".

    Adobe Flash Player is playing a video, when we move the cursor over the video window (or moves the cursor when playing the video in full screen), we see a progress at the bottom of the window bar.  To the left of the status bar is a pause button.

    The progress bar has a pointer representing the playing time in the video.  The progress bar also has a display of the playing time and duration of the video (for example, 40:37 / 01:12:35, which means that read is 40 minutes and 37 seconds in a video that lasts 72 minutes and 35 seconds).

    On my Windows XP system, when Flash Player V10.0.32.18 is playing a streaming video, the video pauses when the bandwidth is temporarily insufficient to provide the video bit stream.  Rotation icon appears in the center of the video window.  Currently reading on the progress bar stops too, as it should.  But when the video continues, the playback time does not begin incrementing again.  He remains at a standstill at the time of the break, which is irritating, because it is no longer possible to say how long he remains in the video.

    It took me a long time to discover that once the current play time has stalled, pressing the pause button will cause the current play time refresh to the correct playing time and begin to increase again.  Yaaayyyyyy!

    Now, maybe someone can help me with a challenge that I have been unable to solve.

    Occasionally, I want to save a few seconds in a video.  But if I use my mouse to get the pointer in the progress bar and move it to the back, move the pointer a few seconds is a huge challenge.  Even a slight movement of my mouse moves the pointer back a minute or two.

    Is it possible to move the pointer using a key (for example, an arrow key) so that each press of button moves the pointer to return only one or two seconds?

    And how about being able to key in an hour and press on enter, what causes the pointer move on time? Any way to do it?

    Hi, OSW, you say that you are using XP, SP1, 2 or 3? What version of IE are you using with XP? You are speaking of two different computers or just XP? You use a different browser?

    The Flash Player version is very old, who would be part of your problem as most of the sites have updated to the latest,

    who is

    In my opinion, it is the cause of everything you encounter.

    After return of the news and we'll go from there.

    Thank you

    After five years of good functioning sth went wrong. The system tries to boot but lack access to a device (HARD drive?). And then tries to download files to recover. After downloading the recovery fails and the only option is to shut down the computer. How can I recover this system?
