SOURCE: Video Problems with Windows Media Player

Why is the projected video black in the Player? If you can see the Player, but the Video and Visualization pane is black, this usually indicates that your video card is not configured correctly. You can usually correct this problem by changing the video acceleration and/or overlay settings for your video card. To change video acceleration, do the following: 1. In Windows Media Player, on the Tools menu, click Options. 2. In the Options dialog box, click the Performance tab. 3. In the Video Acceleration area, move the slider to adjust the video-acceleration capabilities of your video hardware. Drag the slider to Full to use all available video acceleration. Drag the slider to None to use basic video-acceleration settings that work with most video hardware. To change overlay settings, do the following: 1. In Windows Media Player, on the Tools menu, click Options. 2. In the Options dialog box, click the Performance tab. 3. In the Video Acceleration area, click the Advanced button. 4. In the Video Acceleration Settings dialog box, under Video Acceleration, clear the Use overlays check box.

Windows run doesn't keep my work history


you have to physically save any work
save the history to a usb drive in case you have computer failure

Plug the flash drive into your computer's rectangular-shaped USB drive.

Wait for Windows to recognize the system.


Windows operating systems use "plug and play" technology, which means that computer peripherals like USB flash drives can be recognized instantly by the system without further need for device configuration.


Open the drive on your computer.

Open the "My Computer" directory if using Windows XP or the "Computer" directory if using


Windows 7 or Vista. Locate the flash drive letter and icon under the section named "Devices with Removable Storage." Double-click the flash drive icon to open it.


Transfer files to the flash drive.

Click the "Restore" button in the top-right corner of the "Computer" or "My Computer" directory to shrink the window so that you can view your computer's desktop background.


Open the folders or locations of the files which you want to save to the flash drive.

Click and drag with your mouse each of the files and folders you want to save to the flash drive over to the empty space in the "My Computer" or "Computer" window.


Release the mouse button to let the files "drop."

Close the windows and directory locations when finished.


Save files directly onto the flash drive. From an open file (i.e. text, spreadsheet, image files. etc.), click the "File" menu and "Save as" option.


Select the "My Computer" or "Computer" directory in the drop-down menu at the top of the "Save As" box. Double-click the flash drive letter under the "Devices with Removable Storage" section.


Click the "Save" button to save the file onto the flash drive.

Close the windows and files when finished


hope this helps

How to boot my laptop into usb drive


You have not specified your operating system. However I will explain how to do it with windows 7. First you have to create a bootable flash drive. Do it as follows
Format USB flash drive to NTFS format(For Win XP only. Vista users can directly format the USB drive to NTFS format) In your Windows, go to Control panel -> system -> hardware -> Device manager.
Under the disk drives section, right click on the USB storage drive and select Properties.
device-properties.pngGo to the Policies tab, select optimize for performance. Click OK.
device-policy.pngOpen your Windows Explorer, you should see the USB storage drive in the inventory. Right click and select Format. Select NTFS from the drop down bar. Click Start.
format-ntfs.pngFor Windows XP,
Download MBRWizard. Extract the zipped files to your desktop.
Open a command prompt (Start -> Program -> Accessories -> Command Prompt).

cd Desktop/MBRWiz2.0/
MBRWiz /list
Record the USB flash drive disk number
mbrwiz-list.pngMake the USB drive active.

mbrwiz /disk=X /active=1
For Windows Vista,
On the Start menu, navigate to the command prompt entry. Right-click and select Run as administrator.
vista-command-prompt.pngType

diskpart
list disk
Record the disk number of your USB flash drive.
vista-diskpart.pngSelect the USB disk.

select disk X (X is the drive number of the USB flash drive)
List the current partition. Record the partition number.

list partition
Select the current partition and make it active.

select partition Y (Y is the partition number of the USB flash drive)
active
list-partition-vista.png Creating bootable USB flash driveDownload Windows 7 iso (32-bit) file to your desktop (The download link is no longer valid).
Download and install WinRAR.
Right-click on the Windows 7 iso file and select Extract files. Extract the files to a folder (you can name the folder any name you want, but for illustration purpose, I name it win-7) in your desktop.
extract-win-7.pngIn your command prompt, cd to the windows 7 folder.

cd Desktop/win-7 (Change the destination to the folder that you have extracted)
cd boot
bootsect /nt60 X: (X is the drive latter of your USB drive )
bootsect-success.pngNow, copy all the files from the Windows 7 folder to the USB flash drive.
Reboot the computer. Remember to change the first boot device to your USB drive in the BIOS.
You should be able to install Windows 7 from your USB flash drive now.

Can not remember administrator password


This solution will work if you have forgotten your Windows password. It will not work if you have forgotten your boot password or hard drive password etc.

USB Flash Drive Method
You need to download a Windows password cracker, put it on a flash drive, and boot it outside of the Windows environment. This solution will show you how to do that.

1. Download the Ophcrack Windows password cracker from here. For Windows 7, click on the ophcrack Vista LiveCD. Ophcrack is one of the best free Windows password recovery tools available. It's fast and easy even for a first time Windows password cracker. Save file to Desktop.

2. Download Xboot 1.0.0.0 Beta 6 here. Save file to Desktop. Unzip file and extract to Desktop.

3. Plug a USB flash drive into your PC and format it with a FAT32 file system. This can be done by opening "My Computer" and right clicking on the USB flash drive and selecting Format. Select FAT32 and click OK. (Note: this will erase all data on your flash drive.)

4. Open Xboot.exe. Select the Ophcrack ISO file you downloaded and drag it onto the Xboot screen.

5. Click on "Create USB" found i
n the bottom right hand corner of the Xboot window.

6. Select your USB drive and click OK. Wait for your USB flash drive to be created.

7. Restart computer and press F10 or appropriate function key for your computer to enter the temporary boot menu. It may be F12 or F9 etc. Look at the first screen that appears when you turn on the computer and you will see which key to press. You also could enter the BIOS and change the boot order if you would prefer that method.

8. Select USB Flash Drive from the boot menu.

9. The Ophcrack LiveCD will now boot. Hit enter to select the Graphic Mode option when it appears.

10. Ophcrack will automatically begin cracking your passwords. The longer and more complicated the password is the longer it will take to crack. 99% of passwords are crackable. Any password over 14 characters cannot be cracked. This program found my 8 character password which contains letters and numbers in less than 10 minutes.

11. Write down your password when it's cracked. Remove the USB drive and restart computer.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa.

I purchased a new Compaq laptop for my aunt and she has forgotten the password and cannot get into the computer. It has Windows 7 operating system.


I have been planning to update this topic as a tips, but since it's should only be authorized to System administrators and Network Engineers, it's not possible and not allowed to do so, but I would like to give you the link where the important tips and trick.. (click here), If you follow the instructions and use the file with the exact instructions, definitely you'll be able to reset the password, but please note that if you/he had encrypted files saved on his computer while he could access his account, those files will never be able to recover. I am really sorry for that, but I guess he/you haven't applied those settings with his account.

If you need further help, let me know.

Good luck.
