Teamspeak Won't Work with Vista

I play Electronic Arts' Battlefield 2142, and use Teamspeak Overlay Beta 2 (freeware). It won't show up on-screen during the game on my Vista Ultimate 64-bit operating system. I have tried running it in compatibility mode for XP, and still: nothing. I've found nothing on the internet, although there are several who say that they have a 64-bit version of Vista running, and in BF2142 Teamspeak shows up just fine. I've tried everything. Anybody out there a 2142 player who has a solution for this? Our clan is Teamspeak only, and I have to be able to talk to my buddies when I play. =)

    I run it under XP emulation mode and as administrator, still won't show anything other than the game name and screen refresh rate. No names show up.

Look at TeamSpeak overlay with PlayClaw. The main task of PlayClaw is to record game video but it have ability to show Teamspeak & Ventrilo overlays. Works fine with Vista/W7, but only one restriction - voip client must be 32 native (not 64) app. Windows may be in any bits: 32 or 64

For TS, make sure to select "Run as Administrator".

    Did you try checking "Disable Visual Themes", "Disable Desktop Composition", and "Disable Display Scaling..."? I am told from a programmer in our community that TS Overlay will work in that way. It actually doesn't work for me, but he swears by it.

    According to the TS Overlay site, TSO is not supported in Vista x64, but they are working on a new program with the same functions called Project Tint.

    Okay, I got TSO to work yesterday. Do this...

    (a) Run as Administrator.

    (b) In the Compatibility tab, run in WinXP SP2 Compatibility Mode

    (c) Check "Disable Visual Themes" and "Disable Desktop Composition" only.

    (d) Click Apply then OK.

    I had it working for me all day while pubbing, and one of my online cronies has it working for him as well. With any luck, this is an absolute solution and not one of those "your mileage may vary" fixes because of idiosyncratic Vista behavior. Good luck!

Ensure that you have the correct user name and password. If you forget your username have oovoo send your the credentials using the "the forgot password". If that does not work not create a new account and just add your friends and family on the new account.

Have installed IE9 beta over IE8, but IE 9 beta dont have flash point to play video on 32 bit vista. is it OK to upgrade to IE 10 or can be deleted and install IE 8 or 7

If you installed IE9 beta over IE8 you can roll back to IE8 from Add or remove programs in control pannel. Is better to choose a stable version of any program, not Beta because beta is in teste mode and is not certified that is working with any software and addons.

Google Chrome hangs on startup

You have the latest version of Google Chrome - but it is still in BETA. I'm using the same version on Windows Vista Home Premium and I haven't seen the same problem. My advice would be to use a different browser such as Firefox, Safari or Internet Explorer until Google Chrome is past the BETA stage gate.
You should also check that all your Windows updates are current.
