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!

Wont allow me to install battlefield collection

For xbox 360 games, you don't need to install them to play them. If you still want to install it onto your hard drive, make sure you have enough memory left as it can take a couple of Gb to install. if that don't work, your disk is probably damaged in some way, so take it back to the retailers you bought it from if it's still in warranty.

Computer restarts

the only time my computer kept restarting in gameplay i thought it was a directx issue or graphics card driver issue, it actually turned out to be an out of date soundcard driver that was causing mine to crash. Have you check every driver is up to date?

I think my video card wont dump its cache

Have you tried un-installing and re-installing the game? EA has posted instructions for doing so on their support website. I've pasted the website link and instructions for doing so below. I've had to un-install and re-install at least six times myself, and have seen exactly the error that you have described occur twice. I hate this game for the crashes that occur regularly. My system plays Crysis fine, with no crashes, but crashes regularly from 2142. I wish that for once and for all EA would fix this game. It is the best battle simulation in the world, IMHO.

Answer Use the supplied Uninstall shortcut from the Start menu that came with Battlefield 2142 or use the Add or Remove Programs to remove the software. If you encounter difficulty in removing the game, carefully do so manually as follows:
To delete the configuration files and local copy of your account:
  1. Click the Start button on the Windows Taskbar.
  2. Select My Documents.
  3. Right-click the Battlefield 2142 folder and select Delete.

  8. Right-click the folder named {ED50ECE9-EC54-4C05-B5ED-EE4741A9F2EC} and select Delete.
  9. Close all open windows.
  10. Right-click the Recycle Bin and select Empty Recycle Bin.
To edit the registry and remove Battlefield 2142:
  1. Click the Start button on the Windows Taskbar.
  2. Select Run.
  3. Type regedit in the text field and click OK.
  4. Click File and select Export.
  5. Name the file Backup and make sure the Export Range is set to All.
