Question about ASUS A9550GE/TD ATI R9550 GAMER 128M TV/D Graphic Card

Open Question

Google Earth won't run & causes computer to crash.

When I start up Google Earth, my computer crashes the moment the program starts to zoom-in on the Earth's globe. It freezes-up and than the screen goes blank. My computer's system far exceeds the minimum requirements for Google Earth. The following things have been tried to solve the problem: -Have uninstalled and re-downloaded and re-installed Google Earth several times, did not help. -Runned Google Earth in "DirectX", as well as "OpenGL" mode. In both cases the problem persist. -Installed the latest version of DirectX vers.9 -Updated my Graphic Card (=ATI Radeon 9550, 128Mb DDR) with the latest driver. -Updated all other drivers on the computer. -Tried the older version 4.3 of Google Earth, as well as the latest version 5.0. In both cases the problem persist. -I do not run any other programs when starting up Google Earth, have sufficient (1 Gb) RAM. All other games and programs run perfectly on this same computer. I am at a wits end, what could possibly wrong ??

Internet explorer crashes


If Internet Explorer is crashing , your dilema likely lies with a buggy browser add-on. However, Internet Explorer crashes can have a alot of other causes, including incompatibilities with hardware rendering and possible malware.


crashes are often cause by buggy add ons. you can check to see if that is the problem by running internet explorer with out add ons
To do so, open the Start menu and launch the All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > Internet Explorer (No Add-Ons) shortcut.
If running Internet Explorer with no browser add-ons fixed your problem, you can disable the add-ons one by one to identify the one causing the problem. Click the gear menu and select Manage add-ons to open the Manage Add-ons window.
Select an add-on in the Toolbars and Extensions category and click the Disable button to disable it. Disable add-ons one by one - or disable them all and enable them one by one - until you identify the add-on causing the problem.

malware can often be a problem with applications crashing especially for an browser like IE. so scan your system with antivirus software for sure.

Google chrome keeps crashing not sure why


You need to check out all these:
1. Check for Conflicting Software:
- Some third-party software can cause Google Chrome to crash. When this happens, you'll see the message "Whoa! Google Chrome has crashed. It's possible that you have malware that can cause Google Chrome to crash.
- Google Chrome has a hidden page that will tell you if any software on your system is known to conflict with Google Chrome. To access it, type chrome://conflicts into Chrome's address bar and press Enter.
- You can try to fix these crashes by updating, disabling, or uninstalling any conflicting third-party software listed in "about:conflicts" on your computer. Also, take a look at Google Chrome's known issues for specific solutions to resolve crashes caused by some software.
2. Scan for Malware
- This includes malware and network-related software that interferes with Google Chrome. Malware can also interfere with Google Chrome and cause it to crash.
- You can try using Malwarebytes, or other anti-virus software to scan for and remove malware or you can also try searching the web for information related to any conflicting modules listed on the chrome://conflicts page (Windows only), to see if there are other steps you can take to remove malware.
- Many crashes are caused by malware. If you're experiencing frequent crashes, try scanning your computer with antivirus software.
3. Solve Flash Crashes
- We have found that the Flash plugin Chrome includes can cause it to crash in some cases. If you are seeing regular Shockwave Flash crashes, you may want to try disabling the internal Flash plugin and using the standard Flash plugin in Google Chrome.
4. Switch to a New Profile
- Chrome crashes may be caused by a corrupted profile. You can test this by creating a new profile from Chrome's Settings screen. Open the Settings page from Chrome's menu and click Add new user under Users.
- Change to the new profile after creating it and see if the crashes continue to occur. You can sign into Chrome with your Google account to sync the data from your old profile. However, Google recommends you don't copy any files from the old profile folder by hand - they may be corrupted and causing the problem.
5. Fix System File Problems

- Google recommends running the SFC.EXE /SCANNOW program to check for - and fix - problems with protected system files on your Windows system if you are encountering crashes. To do this, locate the Command Prompt in your Start menu (press the Windows key and type Command Prompt), right-click it, and select Run as Administrator.
- Type the following command in the Command Prompt window and press Enter:
SFC.EXE /SCANNOW
- Windows will scan your computer for problems with system files and fix any problems it finds.
6. Hardware issues
- It can also cause Chrome crashes. You may want to test your computer's RAM and ensure it isn't faulty.

ยท If still problem not solve, maybe you should try these simple steps:
1. Try restarting your computer first. It could be that the computer has just encountered a slight glitch on your system, which is causing things to not work properly.
2. Remove and Re-install the Google Chrome application. Doing this will allow your computer to read the files a lot better and faster, and also repair any damaged or corrupt files that have been causing the issue. To remove the Google Chrome application, first insure that you have another browser, such as IE or Firefox, click "Start, Control Panel, Add / Remove Programs," locate "Google Chrome" click UNINSTALL next to it. When the application loads, select "REMOVE" (not repair). Follow the uninstall process, and restart your PC. Problems uninstalling or re-installing Chrome indicate mal- or spy-ware, which must be dealt with.
3. Remove any extensions that you have on Google Chrome. Although they are a great way to personalize your Internet browsing experience, they are not so good for speed and functionality, as many can cause the application to crash. To remove any extensions follow these steps: Open up Google Chrome. In the address bar type chrome: //extensions. Click Uninstall, or Click Disable if you think you may use the add-on in the future. Restart your browser.
4. Disable plug-ins. Chrome can get bogged down with plugins that you aren't using, also. Type about: plugins into Chrome; it will redirect to chrome://plugins. Disable any that you aren't currently using.
Hopefully your Google Chrome crash problems are gone. Hope it works. Sharing is always caring.

Hi i use YM 8.1.0.421. When i try to call pc to pc or if sombedy try to call me it crashes. Can you help me please ? Thank you !


Hello motus50,
I see you have a Yahoo Messenger problem. I would recommend you install a virus scanner. I use Malwarebytes (FREE) and Avast Antivirus (FREE) These two programs will find the malware hidden on your computer. Malware can be the cause of your computer crashing. Possible Result of issue: Yahoo Could be running a certain .dll file. That file could be infected. So the virus is just infecting your computer while crashing it. Just download those two programs and scan & remove them.
Try it again. And it should work. If the problem still persists. Try downloading a older version of yahoo messenger.

APPCRASH error please help


When program files or files within your computer's registry have become corrupted, this can cause the programs to unexpectedly crash. When a program crashes, you will likely get an Appcrash error. The error message will say "Windows Media Player (or whichever program has crashed) has stopped working" and then list rows of technical information regarding the cause of the crash. Unless you are a computer programmer, you may never fully understand what caused your program crash, but that doesn't mean that you can't fix it.
Delete any new programs that you have downloaded. Often, the cause of corruption in a computer system are bad downloads that bring harmful files onto your computer. If you started to get the Appcrash error on your system after downloading a new program or software from the Internet, it's highly likely you have downloaded a bad product. Use the "Add/Remove Programs" feature in your "Control Panel" to get rid of the program immediately.
Uninstall the program that is crashing. It is possible to fix the program's corrupted files while the program is still installed, but to make sure that you clear the program files completely, it is safest to completely uninstall it from the system.
Run a full scan of your computer. Your computer should already have antivirus software installed that can scan for corrupted files and either fix them or delete them from your system. If you do not have antivirus software on your computer, that could be a big part of the problem. Purchase and install antivirus software as soon as possible. These are designed tor from outside threats. Once you have the antivirus program installed, open it and click "Scan Computer." The antivirus scan will isolate bad files and you will be given the option to remove them from your system.
  1. Reinstall the program that was crashing. Now that the corrupted files have all been removed, your program should run smoothly after reinstallation.
  2. Check for program incompatibility. If, after a thorough scan and cleaning of your computer and reinstallation of your program, the Appcrash errors continue, the program you are trying to use may not be compatible with your program. For instance, there are some DVD softwares, such as Media Now, that do not work correctly with Windows Vista. These lists can be easily found online. If this is the case, you will have to purchase a software program that is compatible with your OS
You should download a program such as RegCure and run it from time to time. If you are unable to download a copy let me know and I will give you a link on my web where you can download it.

I computer crashes when I try to open Google Earth


It's your graphics chip and memory I'm worried about and whether you have shared graphics memory coming out of that 1.49GB, since you "meet" the Display Requirements and really should exceed them for some functions of Google Earth.
Upgrade your graphics board, cause you may just be squeaking by with only 32MB, as 64, 128, 256, and 512MB have been de rigeur for years now.

Slow computer


You have to many programs running on startup, and one of the when it gets around to starting is causing your pc to crash, you can click start,all programs,accessories, then Run. Type msconfig,click on the startup tab and uncheck everything, you can rechck them one or two at a time if you dont know what they are, then restar and see what happens. you will have to enter safe mode to do this since your PC crashes. to get to safe mode turn on your PC and start tapping on the F8 key you will see a Microsoft menu, choose safe mode, and follow prompts to get to the desktop, then do the above. if you have 2 PC's, you can go to pacs-portal.com (google it) to find out what each item in the startup tab in MSCONFIG is and if you need it or not or if its a virus. Or Restore your PC to factory settings
