Hi there
The computer is going into power save mode, to resolve this go into the control panel and choose power options, set all the options to "never" and save, the monitor will now stay on while you watch your video's

Thanks for using Fixya!!!

Online video turns white on full screen. I still have sound, but no video.When I exit full screen it comes back. I'm running XP.


Go to the Start Menu. Go to Control Panel. Locate the Icon "Device Manager". Once the dialogue Box "Device Manager" appears, locate and click on "Sound, Video, and Game Contollers".
Click on the + button to the left of this and double click on each controller. When the dialogue box opens, go to Driver and select "update driver".
After updating each driver (if update not available a message will appear telling you that you have the most current or best currently installed).
Also, if prompted, select to check Internet automatically. Do not search the computer files: you will not find them here (unless you manually installed drivers, and haven't enabled them yet).
Please let me know if you need further assistance if this does not change your video status. Here is one other thing you can try:
Update your Adobe version. This is usually the program that is used when viewing videos online. Also, when attempting to play a video - watch at the top of the screen for a yellow bar - usually a message will appear alerting you of this, which indicates you need to enable the Active X for this particular website. I doubt this is the case, but I often run into this, and very seldom notice this yellow bar. The message does not always appear so be alert of this just incase.
Being this is a desktop, you may need to upgrade the video card as well. You shouldn't have to: You can also locate the video card installed in your computer through the Device Manager and update the drivers for it as well.
Let me know how or if any of this helps.

Why does my computer keep slowing down?


The problem is Firefox...it is a resource hog and they have to fix it. It will not release the ram it allocates for itself even after you shut the program down. You can actually hit Ctrl + Alt + Del and bring up the task manager and go to processes and find firefox there and shut it off. My honest opinion is use Google Chrome...it uses very little resources and is the fastest browser out there and you can import all your favorites, etc. Using firefox and watching videos will bring a decent system to its knees.

Computer ramdomly shutting down


Hi there.
It sounds like the system is overheating.
Open the side panel and remove all the dust that you can see, a clean dry soft paintbrush should do the job, make sure you clean the CPU fan and heatsink (the metal block behind the CPU fan).
Once that's done the computer should stay on all the time but remember to clean the insides of the case periodically to prevent this problem form arising again.

Good luck and thanks for choosing FixYa!!

Monitor Shows pixelated colors then flashes no input and turnsoff


Well the fact that your computer beeped tells me that there was a fault in either the motherboard or the video card. I would first replace the video card.

I have another computer it is an acer Aspire 5520 laptop. The computer is online but the computer will not display the internet page so I can't get online.


try turning on the AV scree n and turn off the AV firewall, then turn off (completely) the unit, then start up again...this time try to re-connect to the internet/w the original disk....
on a desktop...there is a modum/ on which you can see a light on if you have a connection...not familiar/w laptop, but if equivalent thing tells you your "on" but you can't get the site on the screen your AV firewall could be blocking it.
My AVG 8.0 has a screen on which you need to select the proper "configuration" (computer in domain) befor it will act correctly...when I didn't, it displaid similar symtoms....
