Did you get a new router or connection to the internet? The LAN games must see your ip address to communicate with you. If yours router or firewall is hiding the ip address, or if they're seeing an address starting with 192.168 or 10.10., that's the wrong ip address.

Some a/v software which includes a firewall can prevent connection too, and just disabling its firewall might not be good enough to get through. If you use the Windows firewall, it can be disabled as a test.

Testimonial: "My router is relatively new but I have played lan games through it, my ip does start with 192. 168. but it always has. I haven't altered any security devices at all and still formally played lan games, so this one is puzzling, I'M running avg 2014, which is a natural upgrade but it doesn't seem to be that either"

SOURCE: My Acer Aspire M5641 freezes

The video hardware is heating up and triggering a thermal sensor, or it's failing due to excessive heat. You might try running air conditioning when you want to play the game that freezes the computer.

Acer aspire wont recognise cd roms but plays dvds


Have you checked your CD roms? Maybe they are already defective. Try running them in a CD player to see if they run smoothly.
Sometimes, the onboard driver update mechanism isn't that consistent with its result. I suggest that you use RadarSync to scan your computer to see if your drivers are updated.
RadarSync is a specialized PC Driver Update Software. You can scan your computer using the free version but if you want it to update the drivers then you can buy a year or two years subscription of the software to keep your drivers updated.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Game keeps crashing at the in game movies, no matter how much progress i've made, and after that i have to delete the game data so that I can play it and last time I did that it didn't work...


The only thing I can think of is that the disc is scratched but you only played it once so I dont see how that could be the problem. Try seeing if there is any patches for the game or the system and go from there.

Im trying to set up the game counter strike source but when I download it and click on it it brings me to a website called steam and doesnt let me play?


You need a steam account, all you have to do is sign up with Steam (which is free). However, if you have downloaded this game, chances are it may not work because majority of steam users actually download their games via steam (they pay using a credit card, and are then able to download a fully certified legal game).
I would suggest signing up for a Steam account and trying to play. If that doesn't work, there are a few ways you can by pass it.
ONLY playing LAN games is one. (Or in this case, pretending to only play LAN games.)
You can do this by:
1. Downloading Garena, Hamachi or Leaf. These are programs that let you play LAN games. (Supposed LAN games, because actually you're playing internationally, just like if you were on a console, but you are tricking the PC to thinking it's a LAN game, as well as fooling the game itself.) I would suggest downloading Garena as it works really well and has the major mainstream PC games. (Plus it is easy to use.)
Just go here:
http://www.en.garena.com/main/

They will give you instructions on how to download Garena, create an account, as well as other information you need.
Hope this helps!

Games freeze when playing. error code 8001050f


i have looked everywhere and i keep finding the same depressing answer. it seems it is just a system error and it seems you only have 2 options:
1.restore system (though it may not work and delete everything).
2. Call sony and see if they can give you any additional info. and advice.(they will probably suggest to send in your system and unless under warranty will cost $150 and they will send you a refurbished system.)
i hope i have helped feel to ask any questions and let me know how it goes.

Ps3 will not play any games


I had a similar problem. My PS3 did not start the disk based games. Those disk based games were not visible in the game menu. I did not have problems with the normal movie DVDs or Movie Blu Rays. Those were working fine.

In case you have the similar problem, you should try the following steps;

The PS3 has a special Recovery Menu, which you can access in the following way;:

1. Turn off Playstation 3.
2. Hold the power button down; the system will turn on and turn off once again.
3. Once the System has been shutdown, re-press you finger until you hear 2 consecutive beeps
4. When you hear the 2 beeps take finger off power button.
5. You will be prompted to plug in your controller via USB and then hit the PS button
6. The Recovery menu will pop up.

The current Recovery Menu supports:
• Restart System: Restarts the PLAYSTATION 3 System.
• Restore Default Settings: Reset all system settings back to default.
• Restore File System: Checks for corrupt/missing system files.
• Rebuild Database: Rebuilds the OS for the PLAYSTATION 3.
• Restore PS3 System: Fresh restore; Deletes everything and starts from Scratch.
• System Update: Update the PLAYSTATION 3 System

Select option "Rebuild Database".

After PS3 has executed the DB rebuilding operation, the disc games will be visible again in the menu and are starting automatically when inserted to PS3.

My playstation 3 wont play any games but it plays the movies that arent blueray


Open up the PS3 and then open up the Blu-Ray Drive. Then clean the lens with rubbing alcohol or isopropyl alcohol on a q-tip. I heard that lighter fluid on a q-tip works way better than rubbing alcohol and isopropyl alcohol, so try using it on a q-tip to clean the lens. I'm not responsible for any damages to your console.

If that doesn't work then go here to get help from other people -
