If your like me you probably have another computer around. We need to "Borrow" its monitor. If not see if a friend of yours has one you can use for a day.

Replace your monitor with the "Borrowed" one and fire it up. If you get the black out right away, try the previous tip with this monitor as well. If this Monitor works, then we have determined that YOUR Monitor has (In gaming terms) "Been fragged". If its an older Monitor its entirely possible that running L4D at max resolution might have been just enough to push it to failure.

If the "Borrowed" Monitor exhibits the same symptoms even after the test. Then the blame lies on your Video card.

Whichever one failed check to see if its under warranty (Not likely for the monitor unless it's less than a year old) But for the video card, if it's by a bigname manufacturer (ie... PNY,BFG, ASUS etc...) then try to scare up your documentation and receipt because alot of these companies offer a Lifetime warranty and you'll get your card replaced/repaired for free. Sometimes if its a discontinued model you even get a free "Upgrade"

If you don't have a warranty. Get a service quote. Find a place that'll give you a free estimate. If you can't find a quote for less than half the cost of purchasing a NEW replacement, then your better of getting a new one. because you'll benefit from "New" technology AND you'll get a warranty with it.

Sorry for the bad news
Hope this helps

My new XBox controller won't sync to my XBox. One will but my second one will not. Whats wrong?

Hello there

From what you have said it sounds like you have the SYNC ERROR

The main causes are Hardware failure, overheating or wear & tear.

You may need to perform simple maintenance, clean or in some cases adjust settings.

To get the best advice on where to start I recommend a XBOX REPAIR GUIDE, From this you can fix the problem at home and avoid any large repair bills. Its easier than it sounds when you have help from the guide.

Me and my friends use this very good Console Repair Website.

The other solution would be to send the console off to Sony, This is free if your still in warranty. If your console is out of warranty then the usual price of repair is $150

I am Glad I could help and You can help others by rating this Post or leaving a comment.
Many thanks

Need instructions on where or how to go about finding a driver or installer


For your Extreme™ Digital 3D, pls click here. You would be asked for your PC's Operating System (Vista or XP or others), thereafter which file you need (Logitech Gaming software or the Wingman Clear Calibration Utility) and finally whether for 32 bit or 64 bit. Pls follow onscreen instructions.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

No manual posted on the Nyko website
Here are the drivers. To use the mapping software is fairly easy. Once you load it up a graphic of the controller will appear with buttons for each controller button placed. You click on the button and a small box letting you choose what keyboard or mouse input you want ascociated.

Hi, I have had the game thrillville off rails for ever and i have never used it because i dont know what do to. The box contains 3 dics and it says..disc 1..disc 2..and..disc 3. i have tried every disc and...

You need to install the game first. Install the discs in order starting with disc 1. Once you put it in the CD/DVD drive and close it, it should bring up the install screen. When it needs disc 2 and 3, it will prompt you to put them in. If disc 1 does not start installation, then you are most likely missing a disc that would be called "Install Disc". Hope this helps and if it doesn't, let me know.

Computer Screen turns black, Computer still runs.


This sounds to me like the game, caused a fault in your video driver that somehow adjusted your resolution/refresh rate to something beyond your monitors range.

If this is the case we can fix it. Restart your computer just after the logo screen push <F8> which should bring up the startup options for Windows. Select "Start in safe mode" Once up in safe mode adjust the "Display settings" to a more modest resolution either 1024 X 768 or 800 X 600 ( don't worry this is just temporary)

Then restart the system and this time it should let you get into your desktop without the "Black out".

Now go to and go through their support page to find the latest drivers for your ATI card (AMD bought ATI a while back) download and install these drivers. then after the reboot you should be all set to change your display back to what your comfort levels are.

If this gets you back to normal, then you had a driver conflict error that corrupted your video cards driver. Try playing the game again, if you get the same symptoms AGAIN then reduce the resolution that the game runs at and/or turn down or off antialiasing / anisotropic filtering and that should reduce the odds of it reoccuring.

If this procedure doesn't help you, please comment back with your results and I will figure out what else went wrong.

Thanks Dave

TDK DVD burner

Hello Halderman

Two possible things are happening.
(A) There is a program that has the DVD burner locked.
(B) It is mechanically stuck.

To open the DVD drive tray, please, follow these steps:

(1) Perform a normal shut down of your computer.

(2) Straighten out about half an inch or so of a thin metal paper clip.

(3) Look closely at the bezel (front face plate) of your DVD drive and find the tiny hole there. It'll be about the diameter of the tip of the paper clip.

(4) Insert the paper clip into the hole keeping it parallel to the floor or desk. (In other words, insert the paper clip straight in - not at an angle.)

(5) Slowly insert the paper clip into the hole and gently but firmly push in until the drawer latch is released. At this point, the drawer will pop open slightly. Slowly pull the drawer out to get the DVD or CD out. Be careful when pulling on the bezel. They are often held on by tiny plastic tabs that break off easily.

(6) S-l-o-w-l-y close the tray drawer or leave the drawer open. The drawer will close when the computer is turned back on again.

If you have ANY more questions, comments, observations, etc on this topic, please, post back here. We'll continue to work the problem w/ you until it is resolved.

If the information I provided here enabled you to resolve your problem....

...would you kindly take just a moment to close the problem by assigning a FIXYA rating for my "solution"? I would be very grateful for your generosity and show of appreciation.

Thank you once again for using FixYa! Have a beautiful day.

Xbox controller not working only has two lights on game pad

There should be a sync button right on the top of the back of the Xbox 360 controller. While the system is on. Power on the controller. Hold down the sync button on the controller, and then press and hold the sync button on the Xbox 360 console. Wait for a few seconds until the Xbox 360 controller lights stop blinking. Then test out the controller. Any comments of questions, post them by clicking on the add more details link inside of this question that you've asked.
