How old is your computer?

It may be that the on board sound your computer has does not meet the minimum requirements of the Fisher Price program.

The program should list on the back or side the minimum requirements. If your computer doesn't meet the sound guidelines, it more than likely will just not play.

If not, sound cards can be purchased for relatively little money and are easy to install.

Good luck and happy holidays!

The errors in computers make it miserable for their users to use them. They face so many problems when computers do not perform as intended. A very common error, which computer users can face, is the c000021a fatal system error.
This error is produced when it found by Windows NT kernel that either of the two processes Csrss.exe or Winlogon.exe has failed. Such processes could have stopped working due to many reasons like misaligned files being installed on the PC and a faulty restoration of files at the place where they were being used. In the event of such a situation, the Windows NT kernel stops the system and the stop c000021a fatal system error message is produced on the screen. This kind of a fatal exception happens when the PC can't tackle an exception and the program showing it needs to be closed.
This kind of a c000021a unknown hard error can be resolved by uninstalling the software that is not as per the needs of your PC. One can remove all the unwanted files present on the PC. An upgrade of the PC's operating system is also an alternative to restore it to its working condition and fix the stop c000021a unknown hard error.
The second solution to fix c000021a error from your computer is also very simple. You do not need to feel much hassled because of it. Just restart the computer. When the computer is booted, press the F8 button. Choose the last known good configuration and then press enter. This error generally happens when some software or hardware has been installed that is not as per the specifications of the PC. Therefore, after selecting the operating system you want for booting, the C000021a error will have been removed from your system.
However, it is better to utilize a registry cleaner software when the error still does not go away.
Windows registry includes all the information that is used by this operating system for carrying on with any operations like creation of documents. Windows Kernel uses all this information for executing the applications.
Registry cleaner software can ensure that the registry is cleaned of all the bad entries which have been causing an improper execution of files by Windows Kernel. Using this software is one of the most effective ways to fix the c000021a fatal system error. It can clean the registry without deleting any useful items from it which can lead to production of further errors.

Fix C000021a Fatal System Error is easy to do with registry cleaner. If you Scan Your Computer it will detect all the errors in your registry and safely remove them.

PC restarts automatically without error message


Sounds like you may have a virus. There are many good free online scanners. For instance try Trendmicro's housecall or Panda online scanner or the one from Symantec.
A great virus program is Antivir. There is a free edition.
Let us know if you need more help.

Hello darrel_grn:
It seems that you have a graphics driver missing for the video card you are using in the game.
Many of the big games and programs which need heavy graphics to make it work right, need to be able to detect the video card, and sound card. Look in your help files or online to see what the program supports. You may be able to get drivers from the author's website, if that is the problem.
Here you can get different drivers for that game. http://www.scssoft.com/huntingunlimited2008-support.php

You may want to try to uninstall the game and re-install it again, and make sure no other programs are running, especially anti virus programs which can cause programs to not install correctly if they are running.
You may also check to make sure your system is up to date. I assume you are running some version of Windows. I did a short research of the game, and it does not seem to be very complicated.

Software for Fisher price cool school will not download in my computer. I have followed all the directions in the manuel but it will not download.


I had the same problem. We returned the game twice, and tried the third one on three computers before one worked. Knowing that the game did actually work gave me confidence. I brought the game back home and tried it again on my laptop (running windows xp). Plugged in the keyboard, loaded the software... same result "missing keyboard". I left the keyboard plugged in, went to my "control panel" and chose "add hardware". I let windows choose the fix. Now the game works great and was a fantastic hit with our 4 year old granddaughter and 2 year old grandson. Fisher Price should add this fix to their website. Good Luck!

No sound card detected even though I can hear CDs from PC


first check that you are having no problems with your soundcard, go to control panel>system>hardware>device manager and see if there is a yellow exclamtion mark next to the soundcard.. If there is then try updating the drivers for it, or uninstalling it by right clicking it and choose uninstall then reboot the computer, the soundcard will be picked up as new hardware and should be installed again. Before you do this though you need to be sure that you have a pci soundcard actually installed and not an onboard chipset soundcard. If you have an onboard soundcard then it may not be good enough for games to be played. A lot of games require a minimum type of soundcard. Check to see what you have. Go to control panel as explained and write down the model number of your soundcard. Then check the minimum requirements for the game you are trying to play.

I cannot get the sound to work between computer and speaker. Have looked at and tried all software options. Is there something else i can do please


Hi sallianne!

Let me help you with your concern.

STEP 1: Check if the sound card is being detected by clicking on the Start button, then select Run, and type in "devmgmt.msc".

STEP 2: Check the "Sound, Video and Game Controllers" if there are bangs on the devices or if the Sound Card is being detected.

STEP 3: We are trying to figure out if the sound card is being detected or not, because if its detected by your system and there are bangs you need to install the driver for your sound card. Or if its not detected, you might try unplugging the sound card and plugging it back to the computer but if that still doesnt work, you need to replace the sound card.
