Normal 0 Try disconnecting the Camera from the USB port and reinstall the CD or Downloaded software program. When the program asks you to connect the camera to the USB port, do so and it should work.
Hope this helps. Bud

Sounds like your hard drive may have developed bad sectors preventing your OS from working properly.Also you may need to install a fresh OS once the sectors are repaired but usually not.Hard Drive Regenerator is a good software for regenerating bad sectors,if they are repairable that is.Either way it sounds like a failed or failing hard drive.

I bought A 60GB HARD DRIVE FOR MY XBOX 360 SLIM AND I DONT KNOW HOW IT WORKS. How do i install it?

X-Box 360 hard drives are deceptively easy to install. Simply press down the button on the flat end of the drive (Far away from the Hand in the image). Lift up and pull away. it should come loose without much force. To install your new Hard Drive. to the same thing backwards. Slide the drive backwards into where it sits. press the connection into the opening. and it should click in. syisiphis.jpg

Test your PSU or replace it if your power supply units fan is not working your PSU is faulty

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect/ boot up a computer hard drive

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your "((MOTHERBOARD TO YOUR HARD DRIVE))" make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they could be faulty a computer needs its connections to continue its cycle and have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error even something as small as a faulty electrical extension or fan lead can cause this problem

follow the troubleshooting procedure a computer needs all of the data and electrical current to travel through every device and to have an end to be able work properly

a motherboard and a hard drive any leads between them will fail before your motherboard or your hard drive if its a flat ribbon 40 pin type IDE replace it this will be the first to fail check all electrical extensions make sure they are securely seated even the cd/dvd floppy drives need to have current go through make sure these drives are working hope this helps also it could be a dirty computer clean all of the dust from your computer you could use a vacuum cleaner but whatever you use make absolutely sure there is no moisture gets to anything in your computer

also check the Cmos battery and computer ram make sure they are securely seated

hope this helps

Windows XP. connect DCR-SR68E. XP asks for driver. and fail install

These handycams are newer models packed with technology. While windows XP is an old windows and would not have its driver by default. If you have got a Disk with the Cam, insert that into the Drive and try to install driver from there. If you haven't, then you will first have to remove the defaulted driver and then download a new driver to run with it.
To uninstall the defaulted driver follow the steps:
  • Click on Start
  • Go to Control Panel
  • Double click on Device Manager
There you will see a yellow question mark for the driver of the cam coder. Right click on it and click in install. Then try connecting the Camera again and installing the driver. It if doesn't work, let the windows search in online for you. If it still doesn't work, try to find the driver for the camera on the Sony's site for your particular Cam.

I start LEGO Star Wars but then says lego starwars stop wrking

LEGO Star Wars II for PC requires the following minimum system requirements:

Operating System
Required: Windows 2000, XP, or Vista

Required: 100% DirectX 9.0c compatible computer

Required: Intel P3 1.0 GHz or AMD Athlon 1000 MHz
Recommended: Intel P4 2.0 GHz or AMD Athlon XP 2400+

Required: 256 MB RAM
Recommended: 512 MB RAM

Graphics Card
Required: 64 MB 3D Graphics card with Vertex and Pixel Shader (VS/PS) Capability
Recommended: 128 MB 3D Graphics card with Vertex and Pixel Shader (VS/PS) Capability

Sound Card
Required: 100% DirectX 9.0c compatible Audio Device

Required: 8X Speed CD-ROM drive
Recommended: 16X Speed CD-ROM or DVD-ROM drive

Input Device
Required: Keyboard and mouse. Gamepad and joystick supported
Recommended: Gamepad

Microsoft DirectX 9.0c (April 2006 Edition) is included on this CD. You will be prompted to install DirectX during the installation of this game if this or a more recent version is not already properly installed on your system.
NOTE: DirectX may require the "latest" updates for your operating system. This may also include the latest drivers for your motherboard, sound, and video hardware.

Installation: Installation requires 3.5 GB of free hard drive space. We recommend that you have an additional 500 MB of free space available after installing the game for the Windows swap/page file.

You must have local Administrator rights to properly install LEGO Star Wars II and update Dire

No other programs should be running in the background.
System resources should be at least 85% free.

To check this:
Press CTRL-ALT-DEL once, choose Task Manager, choose the Performance tab, and check CPU Usage.
There should be at least 500 MB of free hard disk space after installation.

If you experience performance issues when running LEGO Star Wars II, we recommend that adjust the following options in the Video Options menu:

Lower the video resolution.
Set Antialias to Off
If this option is set to Antialias from Control Panel, you will need to set your Antialiasing Setting to Application-Controlled in the Windows Display Properties for your specific graphics card.
Disable Bloom Effect.

Please close all other programs before running LEGO Star Wars II. This includes virus-scanning, word processing, and Internet programs. Simply disabling these programs will not always help, as the programs still use resources that are needed to run LEGO Star Wars II. If you experience problems completely closing programs that are running, consult the documentation for those individual programs. This is a common problem when trying to completely disable virus-scanning software.
