Video card freezing


Things to test (you might already have tried some of these):
Do videos played from local storage (hard disk, memory stick, cd/dvd etc.) also freeze up or is it just videos from the web? If it does, the problem is likely to be something to do with your laptop, like video drivers.
To assess if it is a problem with a particular website try videos from a different website to see if they work. If they do, the problem is likely to be an issue with a particular website. (unlikely though since your computer freezes up but sometimes network timeout situations can lock up your computer)
If you have access to the internet in another location, try the same there. Do the videos from the same website still cause freezes? If it works ok, the issue could be related to your internet connection.
Ok, that was the "have-you-turned-it-off-and-back-on-again" checks. Now on to your system.
Video from the internet is most likely Flash video so browse to www.adobe.com and look for the Flash Player in their downloads. Download ind install the latest version.
Go to Sony's website and look for drivers for your laptop. In particular, check for updated video drivers and network drivers and download and install both.
Try using a different browser. Some browsers have problems vith the Flash Player. At the time of writing this Google Chrome is particularly troublesome with jittery video. I don't know your level of expertise but the three most common browsers are chrome - http://chrome.google.com, firefox - http://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/new/ and internet explorer - http://windows.microsoft.com/en-GB/internet-explorer/download-ie. Try all three flavours of browser but also download and install Flash Player in each browser.
Hopefully something here should help fix your issue. Please reply and let us know if any of this worked or if you tried it all and it still does not work.

Where can i download window player for toshiba dynabook t4/495cce driver


Hi,

Thank you for choosing FixYa! Regarding your concern for a media player download, I advise to get the VLC media plyer instead. Why? Because VLC has the most codecs a media player could offer to play all types of audio and video formats. Follow the instructions below.
  1. Click on the link http://www.videolan.org/vlc/download-windows.html
  2. Click on "Installer Pack"
  3. On the next page, wait for the download prompt to come up and click on Run (for Internet Explorer Browser) or Save file (for Mozilla Firefox Browser).
  4. Wait for the download to complete and play any audio or video file.
There are cases where a media player displays distorted videos. That is because of missing codecs. With VLC you have nothing to worry about. I am using this, so as a technician I highly recommend you to try it. Thank you for choosing FixYa! Enjoy!

The sound on my firefox browser is low but when I listen to Window media player, it is very loud.


Try following solutions, if it works for you

To switch between speakers and headphones on Firefox,
make sure your headphones are plugged in first,
Right click on volume on the bottom right corner of your screen,
Then select Volume Mixer,
then double click on System sounds,
Click on the playback tab,
then you could switch between speakers or headphones, just select one and click "set default" and OK
only sounds in firefox will play in the headphones,
and windows media player will play on the speakers

You could leave your windows media player to play on the speakers while you listen to firefox videos in the headphones

If you want the media music player to play in your headphones also;
You have to change it in the media player program,
go to options on the media player, then look for playback devices, there should be 2 options speakers and headphones,
just pick one

I usually set the firefox audio to my headphones,
and a media player to the speakers

Please rate & vote if you like solution...

Thanks

My computers audio works on itunes, media player etc. But it doesn't work when i try to play audio through any type of web browser.


If you are playing a video or something else through your browser, most times the video or audio playing through browser has its own volume control located on the player. Locate it and turn up the volume.

I cant play any videos on you tube


hi friend,
If you're receiving this error message and unable to play videos,
here's what I recommend to get you back on track and able to watch
videos successfully again. Please follow the steps listed below...
1. uninstall the version of Adobe Flash that you currently have
running on your computer. You can uninstall Flash here:
http://kb.adobe.com/selfservice/viewContent.do?externalId=tn_14157
2. Once you've un installed Flash, then go to the Adobe site and
download the most recent version of the Flash player:
http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/
3. At this point, completely exit your browser (don't just close the
window, exit the browser completely).
4. Only now, once you've exited your browser, can you install the new
version of the Flash player you just downloaded. Install the Flash
player.
5. Finally, open your browser again. Go to You Tube and try playing a
video-- the video should now play!
6. If the video *still* doesn't play, make sure you have java script
enabled (turned on) in your browser.
If you're not sure how to do this, do a Google search for your browser
and then "enable JavaScript". You should easily find instructions on
how to enable java script.
Here are a couple of examples for firefox, Internet Explorer, and
Opera users:

and

When I try to play a youtube video it says an error has occurred.


Try installing Adobe Flash Player, available from http://www.adobe.com/go/EN_US-H-GET-FLASH , and then re-starting your web browser.

If more problems persist, you may need to restart your computer, if you installed new Windows Updates, or the YouTube video you are trying to play may no longer be available on YouTube, because it may have been removed, because that YouTube user has either posted a video that is copyrighted, such as a Music Video, or had violated YouTube terms of Service.

Also, you may want to double check the web site address you are on, because maybe you either types in wrong web site address, or also, there may be some problem with your web browser.

If you want, list me your web browser (e.g. Internet Explorer / Mozilla Firefox / ...), and also, which operating system you are using (e.g. Microsoft Windows, Linux, ...), and I may be able to help you.

Videos don't play


Which web browser are you using? If you are trying to view videos on You Tube or Google Videos, you will need to install Adobe Flash (www.adobe.com).

If you are using Internet Explorer, you might notice a little yellow bar at the top of the browser asking you to install an "Active X" control from Adobe Systems, click the install button and will will install Flash for you.

If you are using Firefox, then you will need to go to the Adobe site and download the player manually. The direct link to the file is here

Once you download the file, install the software then restart Firefox.

Dell Inspiron E1505 no sound in web browser


I must tell you that this is not an issue with the drivers or the web browser or the computer. This could be possible that volume button on the video while on web browser is mute or lowered....

Please check.....

However you can try to watch the same video online on other computer, just to isolate the issue....
