Cyrilic Subtitles Do Not Display

When I open Cyrilic Subtitles with Notepad, it shows me just strange symbols, It's the same when I try to watch the movie with those Subtitles. It's not from the subs, I'm sure. When I open them with Word, they display normally. Why is this happening?

I need to type math symbols. How do I do that?


Start - Program Files - Accessories - System Tools - Character Map.

Or find the ones you want to use online and copy & paste them. If you have a series of math symbols you use a lot, paste them into a little NotePad file and save it on your desktop for that purpose.

How do i change chinese to english on my note pad


Hello,
If everything else on your computer is in english but your notepad is showing chinese then all you will need to do is change the font setting.
Open notepad, click Format and click Font. Select a font like Time New Romans.

Fatal error cooooo34 Problem after updating to (sp1).how i can fix that from bios?i tried all the other ways


01. Reboot your computer while it's starting up.
02. When your computer starts up again, choose the option "Launch Startup Repair"
03. When the Startup repair starts, click cancel.
04. After you click cancel it will show a box. Click "Don't Send"
05. Click the link "View advanced options for recovery and support"
06. In the new window click Command Prompt at the bottom.
07. In Command Prompt type this and press enter: notepad.exe
08. Notepad will open. In notepad go to File-->Open.
09. Change the type of files notepad views from .txt to All Files
10. Now in Notepad, go to C:\Windows\winsxs\ (or whichever drive Windows is installed on)
11. In that folder, find pending.xml and make a copy of it
12. Now open the original pending.xml (it will load really slow because the file is huge)
13. Press CNTRL+F and search for the following exactly: 0000000000000000.cdf-ms
14. Delete the following text (yours will be a little different):
<Checkpoint/>
<DeleteFile path="\SystemRoot\WinSxS\FileMaps\_00000...
<MoveFile source="\SystemRoot\WinSxS\Temp\PendingR... destination="\SystemRoot\WinSxS\FileMaps...


Your PC might not have all 3 sections of code (<Checkpoint>, <DeleteFile>, <MoveFile>). Just make sure you delete section "Checkpoint" and whatever other sections have "000000000000000.cdf-ms". They will be right next to eachother.

15. Save the file, close notepad, close command prompt, restart your computer.


Once your computer starts up, do a normal startup (it may stall for 5-10 minutes at the "starting windows" screen, but leave it going) and the Service Pack will install some more stuff and restart a few times and then everything should be working! For some people, it reverts everything and cancels the service pack installation. For other people, the service pack installation completes. Either result is fine.

When i open a movie with vlc and i add greek subtitles,instead of greek the subtitles are like arabic or chinese,something like that.why?


VLC needs to have the language pack to show the greek letters, but I think this feature isn't built in yet. you need to use another programm, try it with winamp or some other application.

Firstly i am not able to understand your problem correctly.What i think your problem i am writing solution according to that.

Try playing in different player or better player like vlc which can play all types of media files.
May be there is some problem in your player caching.As caching needed everytime u play a movie.Try uninstalling your player then reinstalling.

Hoping this will work

I can't open files


whatever you are downloading and trying to open is something that you have not got the software associated with it to open it and either you have chose notepad to open up the file or windows as selected it as default as it cannot find a programme that you have installed to open it. If you know that you have an associated programme, right click on the file select open with and then browse for the required programe.
