It seems like your video card does not meet the minimum requirements for your game. The documentation that comes with your game should tell you what the minimum specification is in order to run the game successfully.

After computer turns on there is no start bar, no icons, and nothing even when i right click...


Try removing your video card if it is and add on card and not on board restart you computer after you have removed it not forgetting to enter setup and tell it to look for the on board video not the add on card and connecting the monitor to the correct VGA port for your on board video. Allow windows to load fully and configure the on board video then once this is complete shut down your PC re install your video card after doing so power up your system enter Bios once again change the setting back to look for the add on video card usually automatic, Save and exit if screen is still black after windows has loaded connect monitor to the add on video card as it has configured it back to the rightful settings. If your computer loads to windows on the on board videos right click enter properties and change back to the add on card and connect cable after confirmation as screen will go black and you should be seeing everything you should have prior to the problem arising. If this does not work then it could be a worst case scenario that your video card has malfunctioned and needs replacing/repairs if able to be usually not though unless it is a big dollar card that is upgradable. If all else fails try to use the windows repair feature to repair the installation of windows. I hope this helps

I believe my video card it out, what do I replace it with since it is built in to the motherboard?


Go and purchase a pci-e video card and mount it in the first pci-e slot on the motherboard. It will be the one highest from the rest of the slots. Attach your video cable to it and reboot. When the system boots for the first time Windows will recognize the card and load generic drivers to run it. Once it loads, insert the drivers and software disc that came with the card and load the cards drivers.

Blue screen of death. unable to download drivers. can not get to safe mode. cannot reload orperating system disks.


First off, note down all relevant information when you see a BSOD flash across the screen. This includes the error number and friendly name from the 'bugcheck' section of the stop error (see above), and any file names specified in the 'driver information' section.
If the BSOD comes up on the screen for a split-second before the PC restarts and wipes all the useful information away, we need to change some settings within WinXP. In most cases, it should be possible to stop your PC from automatically restarting when it develops a major error, allowing you enough time to jot down the BSOD error message. If you are using WindowsXP, right click on my computer > Properties > Select the 'Advanced' tab > and under 'startup and recovery' click the 'settings' button. This will open a new window, and under the 'System Failure' heading, uncheck 'Automatically restart.' Continuing on, attempt to restart the computer normally into Windows. If the BSOD occurred while booting Windows, you may be taken to a troubleshooting menu and will have to select 'attempt to start Windows normally.' If your computer starts correctly, continue using it and store the error information for later reference. If the BSOD reoccurs at random or irregular periods, see Section D below on troubleshooting intermittent stop errors.
If your system does not start correctly or the stop message happens again, reboot the system. When the POST (memory checking) screen comes up, press F8 repeatedly. This will bring you to the Windows advanced options menu.
In the Windows advanced options menu choose 'safe mode' to attempt to boot into Windows Safe mode. Safe mode loads Windows XP with a minimal set of drivers and no automatically loaded software. If faulty software or drivers are causing your BSOD problem, safe mode should load correctly. If safe mode loads correctly, refer to Section A below on 'troubleshooting software stop messages.'
If safe mode does not load correctly, and/or you get the same stop message upon attempting safe mode, it's time to try the 'restore last known good configuration' option in the advanced options menu.
Restart your computer, pressing 'F8' again to load the advanced options menu and select 'last known good configuration (your most recent settings that worked).' This uses Windows XP's built in system restore utility to restore the most recent save point, which should be the last time you installed any drivers or other software. If your system boots normally after this operation, hopefully your problem has been fixed.
If you are still receiving a Blue Screen Of Death after the above procedures, or if system restore was disabled on your system, note down any new information on the error and start thinking. Did you install any new hardware or software just before this problem occurred? The driver information section of the BSOD may help with this.
If you did install new hardware or software, and you think you know what it might be that is causing the problem, this gives you a big boost in resolving the situation.
Otherwise, proceed to the advanced troubleshooting sections below. Chances are your error is hardware or system file based and will require more effort to repair.
Specific Repair Instructions
If you have a reoccurring Blue Screen Of Death or crashing problem, and can't use Windows effectively because of it, it's time to look at more specific methods of troubleshooting your problem. Depending on the results of the basic troubleshooting steps above, you should have a good idea of whether the problem that is causing the stop messages is related to software or drivers you have installed, or is a hardware or system file issue.
Essentially, if you can't boot into Windows XP safe mode because of crashes or Blue Screens Of Death, you likely either have a hardware error or one or more essential system files is corrupted or missing. If you can boot into Windows XP safe mode, but get constant or frequent BSOD's when running XP normally, you have a software or device driver problem.

Make sure that if you added any RAM to your computer which is a common cause for BSOD that you added the correct RAM for your computer and that it is equally distributed in the ports meaning each port for the RAM has the equal amount of RAM on each side (eg, one stick 1GB, and the other has 1GB, etc).

Event error 1033


it seems like this problem may be related to your video. I found this forum about the same problem and it seems there are several different reasons. You can try to load new drivers for your video card (search your computer brand and model + video drivers) and see if that helps. Other than that you can try one of the solutions offered in the previous link

Have loaded hp all in one for first time and after many attempts the device set up has failed to complete screen displays.have followed instructions over and over and is installed but no program or views...


To begin with you need to turn the printer on by the electric outlet, but not the usb lead to the computer, when you turn the printer on for the first time it will print an alignment page, put this face down on the scanner bed, and then load the software, the software will tell you when to connect the usb lead. Do not connect the USB lead until instructed to do so. You will then be guided on what to do next on the screen and which parts of the software you want to run. I suggest doing a complete install as this will come with HP solutions enabling you to get help if you run into problems. If you have the software loaded on the computer but it failed to connect the printer then maybe windows tried to pick it up. Do not connect the usb lead and windows will not pick it up. Uninstall the software and try again as instructed above. When the software starts to load and it instructs you to connect the usb lead, windows may tell you that it has found new hardware, ignore the pop up as the drivers will be loaded from the cd.

I hope this helps

I bought apci tv capture card and the manual version says 2.0 and the driver and software disc says v5.3 and whe i try to open the enltv says that the set up is incorrect


A lesson


You mean you purchased a PCI TV Capture card , not "apci" tv capture card.

Good for you ! , Television Sets are a thing of the past and it's time we moved on.

and your manual says your PCI TV capture card is version 2.0
and that your Installation CD states that it's version 5.0



1. the driver CD version of the drivers on it can be 5.0 this has nothing to do with your PCI TV capture card being 2.0 , they are totaly sepreate things.


2. when you attempt to launch the enltv program you receive the error message

"set up is incorrect"

Your PCI TV Tuner Capture Card is made by Encore.

Well your in luck !


There is excellent support for it here.

http://www.encore-usa.com/product_item.php?region=us&bid=2&pgid=17&pid=46

But I see a weakness , and a delema

The weakness is that the site may not provide you with what you really need.

and the delema is to decide what you want to do about that !

If you already have a driver loaded , and you can see that everything is ok in the device manager
meaning no yellow exclamation marks on your PCI TV Tuner device then please proceed with these steps


Since Most PCI tuner cards have less than sufficent support and may not work in all circumstance
due to OS incompatabilites. we sometimes have to take matters into our own hands.


1. Install the PCI TV Tuner into the second PCI slot and try to assign it IRQ 9
2. Load the driver if you have no IRQ conflict
3. Load a program called "MediaPortal" a third party freeware open source program designed to give you back the ability to watch your PCI tuner capture card in the event that it's Television software has failed.

Do not load media portal unless you are confident that your PCI TV Tuner Card DRIVER Installed correctly.

Do no load MediaPortal unless you have no other choice.

4. If at this point you have decided to give MediaPortal a try then download it and install it.

DO NOT install MediaPortal at this stage unless you have downloaded ALL the microsoft critical updates and service packs.



Please understand that your computer may be horribly outdated and needs all it's critical updates and service packs , and maybe even updated directx before MediaPortal can run properly


The default password for SA
is "MediaPortal" and that IS case sensitive


Thank you for using FixYa!

Try to verify the video card requirment of the software your using. Or the system requirement of the software.

Try to verify if you install the video adapter driver of your system. if you have not install, you must install it to support your application software.
