Question about Microsoft Windows XP Media Centre 2005 for PC

1 Answer

XP inside VirtualBox Crashes Whenever A Game is Launched.

When ever I try to launch this game:

It always freezes up and I have to end the session. The log file:

p, li { white-space: pre-wrap; } 00:08:12.051 Display::handleDisplayResize(): uScreenId = 0, pvVRAM=00000000 w=720 h=400 bpp=0 cbLine=0x0
00:08:12.091 Display::handleDisplayResize(): uScreenId = 0, pvVRAM=ae136000 w=800 h=600 bpp=32 cbLine=0xC80
00:08:23.663 Display::handleDisplayResize(): uScreenId = 0, pvVRAM=00000000 w=720 h=400 bpp=0 cbLine=0x0
00:08:23.723 Display::handleDisplayResize(): uScreenId = 0, pvVRAM=ae136000 w=800 h=600 bpp=24 cbLine=0x960
00:08:54.705 RTC: period=0x20 (32) 1024 Hz
00:09:20.586 RTC: period=0x200 (512) 64 Hz

It looks like It's having trouble resizing the virtual machine's display or something. Any help at all would be appreciated.

    Sometimes some graphic cards have issues. But too be sure your PC can even meet the minimal requirements, go to and check whether your system requirements meet it or are above/ If you don't know, please post your specifications here, you can find the them by going to Start>Run>(Type)dxdiag>(Click)Yes/Okay and copy and paste the information that appears from the system information & graphics.

Online gaming ping getting high suddenly then it starts to go down

I am not familiar with that specific MMORPG, are you logging into a dedicated host or is another player hosting the game, if it is another player hosting the game the problem could be on that players end and not yours.

You can try doing a hard rest on your router and then setting it back up, if you write down the old passcode you should be able to manually reenter it into the corresponding block in your router so you do not have to use a new one and setup all your wireless devices again.

It could also be someone else on your network hogging bandwidth" watching videos, downloading a large file"

PS3 Recovery Options Screen

A lot of PS3 problems can be solved by accessing the PS3 Recovery Menu. You can do that by

1. Turn off PlayStation 3.
2. Hold the power button down until the system turns on and then off once again.
3. Once the System has been shutdown, re-press power until you hear 2 consecutive beeps .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.


7. Choose to 'Restore File System' and follow the process through.

If that doesn't work you can try some of the other options.

  • 1)Restart SystemThis option boots your system as normal without changing any settings or files.

  • 2)Restore Default Settings.Restores all default settings on the PS3 for networking, clock, video, etc. For a full list of the restored settings you can look under settings> system settings > restore defaults on your console. This should not eliminate your game saves or other saved content, including your user login.

  • 3)Restore File SystemThis will rewrite the files the PS3 uses to boot. This feature will help if files have become corrupted and are not allowing the console to boot as normal. This should not erase any of your saved data or settings.

  • 4
  • )Rebuild DatabaseThis can be a usefull feature if you have lost files on your system for no apparent reason. Try using this feature to see if it can restore those files. This will also rewrite corrupted files within the database, potentially eliminating future issues. This feature should not erase any of your saved data or settings.

  • 5)RESTORE PS3 SYSTEMThis will restore your system to original including, formatting and erasing all of the data on the HD and returning all system settings to default. This will not take your system back to a previous Firmware release. Use this option as a last resort, unless you have nothing on the console that you want or you want to erase everything on the console, do not use this option.

  • 6)System UpdateThis will allow the user to update their console with new firmware via a Flash drive or other portable media. This will not allow you to update via an internet connection. This can usefull if your system has become corrupted to the point you can not boot. You will need a portable media device with the correct firmware and in the correct file structure to complete the upgrade. For further information on using portable media to upgrade your system please see our section on upgrading your Firmware.

    I receive the error 'Network Initialization Failed: Permission Denied' when trying to launch Magicard ID software

    Hi There,
    This error happens when the user does not have read / write access to a file called PDOXUSRS.NET. Earlier versions of Magicard ID (before V3.02) stored this file on the root of the C: drive. If running on Windows Vista, the file cannot be accessed. The last version released (V3.05) in 2008 will run on Vista (32 bit only). If you are running V3.05 already, and still see this error, search for 'PDOXUSRS.NET'. It is probably in 'C:\Program Files\Magicard-ID\data'. Check the permissions on the file you must have read / write access to it. Try logging on as local admin. ensure any users who run Magicard ID have read / write permissions to this file. Magicard ID V3.05 can be found here;
    NOTE! You will need to enter your printer's serial number in the QuickSearch box.

    Hope this helps,

    I bought act of war direct action in 2009 through steam and it worked fine for a while now when i try to launch it it wont launch and every time i verify integrity of the game it says its always missing...

    If you are checking the integrity, STEAM should replace the file if it finds a missing or changed file. I am not sure why it would not.

    If its not letting you fix the file from the integrity check, find any saved games you have (could be in my documents folder if not in steam) and re-install the game via steam. Right click - uninstall, then install. This will fix the problem.

    If your problem is the common FN+F1(wireless) and F8/9 for brightness don't work, then you might have lost the Launch Manager software; Browse to Li 2727 on and download the launch manager for vista, verified working on win7 aswell. Install launch manager and reboot; the wireless + brightness hotkeys will work again without any further setup!

    Not getting chat session

    It could be that your profile does not have enough categories, and the chats that are coming up are not in your profile. Try to add as many categories in the My Profile should be able to see a chat or two. Also note that most of the customers are in the US, so the time difference could be a factor as well..
