This can be caused from 3 different problems.

1. your hard drive is corrupt and the temporary memory or the system RAM is corrupting your video output.
2. Compressing files and deleting them may have caused your data to be accessed slower.
3. Your video card is dieing and needs to be replaced.

Replacing any of the hardware items listed above will not be worth it in comparison to buying a new PC. Plus it's most likely your old PC isn't going to work much longer if it's a Hardware Problem. If you don't have a lot of money and want a quality computer go to www.mindblowingidea.com/ComputerRescue to get a new PC. Anyway I'm sure you will get it figured out. If your afraid of Vista you should know Computer Rescue does not sell Vista. They sell XP and Linux.

How do I free up soace


Space? On what? A phone? Go to your whatsapp folder using a folder manager app (Total Commander for example). Then select all the photos in the SENT folder and delete them. Whatsapp duplicates every file it sends everytime it sends it.

Built-in acer crystal eye camera does not function


Click start control panel view devices and printers you should see your webcam from there if you are have trouble with your webcam Click start control panel administrative tools computer management device manager scroll down image devices you could see a yellow question mark? right click to reinstall drivers or update driver xp Click start right click on computer select properties device manager scroll to image devices expand right click to update driver in W7 http://download.cnet.com/2000-20_4.html on the home page you should see a search tab just type in what you are looking for IE: webcam name webcam driver you might have to try a few times to get it right software if you dont have the driver you will need to download one here rather doing a driver hunt which can take hours http://download.cnet.com/slimdrivers-free/3000-18513_4-75279940.html Windows XP/Vista/7/8 It might take some time being a freeware driver solution note: it will find all of your outdated drivers this is a free driver solutions This will automatically search for and find the correct driver you will have to update every driver individually once you update you might be asked whether you want to restart or make a system restore point click no to both of these then continue updating each driver free then restart once all of the drivers have been updated Some webcams and programs require additional software, although that should be installed with the webcam if things are right. But is does not harm to check if your Java, Flash and Quicktime software are installed and up to date. But certainly check your DirectX software, since all video applications, including webcams, use DirectX for video processing. Try downloading the latest DirectX version and install it (Windows XP: DirectX 9.0c - Windows Vista: DirectX 10). http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows7/Which-version-of-DirectX-is-on-your-computer If you still have no webcam installed Run the "Add a device"application, accessed by clicking on the "Start" button, opening the "Control Panel," and then double-clicking on "Add a device." The "Add a device" window will open and Windows will search for devices connected to your system but not installed. Click on the webcam name that shows in the search box and then click "Next." Choose whether you want Windows to search for the webcam device driver using Windows Update over the Internet, or if you'd prefer to have the device manager search for the driver using a disc supplied by your laptop manufacturer. Most drivers can be found on the system recovery disc included with your laptop, if you choose to add the driver from the provided disc. Place a check in the box next to your choice and then click "Next>" to continue. Wait while Windows searches from the driver using Windows Update, if this was your choice. An active Internet connection is required for Windows to successfully do this. Allow the computer to install the driver and then reboot the system for the webcam to become recognized by the system. Otherwise, you can use the system recovery disc or a driver downloaded directly from your laptop manufacturer to install the driver without using the Windows Update search feature. Open the CD/DVD-ROM drive and insert the system recovery disc, or place the driver downloaded from the manufacturer in an easily accessed file directory on your PC, such as on the desktop, or in your "My Documents" folder. Choose the option "Install the software automatically (Recommended)" in the "Add a device" application, and press "Next>" to begin searching for your webcam driver. The hardware wizard will search the system recovery disc and install the driver automatically. Press "Finish" to close the wizard and then reboot the computer to allow recognition of the webcam. Choose the option "Install the software manually" in order to browse to the driver location where you saved the driver and install it from there. Use the opened file manager and locate the driver. Click the "Next>" button to install the driver, then reboot the computer to add webcam functionality.

The bookmarking system has been changed from that of previous versions) This varies on each PC since the profile folder name is a randomly generated name, but here's an example:

I keep getting a pop up windows alert that a file called tray/app. msi is misssing, tries to load and asks for a source disc. What source disce am I looking for? It s a Dell Inspiron laptop with Windows...


It may have to do with an HP Printer. If that's what you're using or previously had installed, go here...

http://www.ehow.com/how_5269744_remove-trayappmsi.html

Follow the instructions and you should be good to go. Otherwise, if you gave away an older HP Printer and installed a new one without removing/uninstalling the old HP Printer from the Control Panel, you could get the same error.

If that's the case, uninstall the older printer. Then hold down the Windows Logo button on the keyboard and press the R key once. A Run Command window will appear. Type in "%TEMP%" without the quote marks and hit enter. You will be looking at your Temp Files. Delete as many as the System will allow and then restart.

It can get a little complicated after that if the error message is still there and you might consider having an "advanced user" friend give you a hand.

I'm hoping to ficx ur problem. Ibeliev you might have to much loaded on yor mp3 for it to even startup completely, so I've tried to write down how you can remove a song or 2 or 3 etc to make room on your mp3 memory. This might resolve yyour problem.
Try hooking it up to a computer throught the usb cord, then click start (just close any windows that open up), then click 'my computer', a window will apper listing several 'discs' for example the harddrive is usually disc (c)...One of the discs there ( (f) opr (e ) orso) will be your mp3 memory. Open all disc one by one, (you can skip the harddrive disc (c) ), till you find files that resemble the ones on your mp3..when you find those, then delet a few songs orso. When done, close all windows, remove the mp3 and try again.

I fthis helped (or not ) please rate, thank you!

I can't delete ArcSoft software from my add/remove area


I'll tell you, but you're going to have to go the long way. Best method I'm aware of.

Plus I suggest you download CCleaner. CCleaner is a free registry cleaner. (Don't let the fact that it is free, dissuade you one bit! It's a better registry cleaner program than the PAID for one's are! )

After you delete a program there are 'tidbits' left behind. Fragmented files. These take up space also, and in essence are just junk. Like having partial pages torn out of a book. A registry cleaner rids you of them.

This is information about CCleaner from Wikipedia.org,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CCleaner

After you view the information, and wish to download CCleaner, simply go to the right of the page, under the illustration, and click on the website address.
After you download CCleaner, come back if you wish, and I'll explain the easy way of how to run the program.

Long way of deleting a program, but assurance that it will be gone. (After using CCleaner also)

Windows XP Home running, Left-click on Start.
Hover your mouse cursor on All Programs, go up to Accessories, over and down to Windows Explorer, and click on it. (This isn't Internet Explorer, in case you are not familiar with Windows Explorer)

After Windows Explorer has loaded, go up to the top header. Left-click on Tools. Now on Folder Options in the drop down list. Finally Left-click on the View tab.

In the list, go down to where there is a yellow folder with - Hidden files and folders - to the right of it.

Below this you will see an empty circle, and to the right of it - Show hidden files and folders
Left-click once in this box.

Now go below to the right, and Left-click on Apply. Finally go down to the left, and click on OK.

After you do this a Microsoft 'squawk box' will come up. "Warning you are.........."
It's okay. Click on OK if present.
The reason this warning box comes up is that a user can delete necessary Windows files, IF, they do not know what they are doing.

I'm not going to guide you towards destructing your Windows operating system, rest assured. We are not going anywhere near Windows files. Just the ArcSoft program file that's about to hit the trashcan.

When you open Windows Explorer, the default setting is to automatically open your My Documents folder. You can see a negative sign ( - ) next to My Documents in the 'file tree' to the left, and the contents of your My Documents folder to the right.

I like to close the file tree for My Documents. Less clutter, and less chance of getting confused.

If you are of the same mind, go up to the - sign next to My Documents, and Left-click right on the - sign. It will turn into a + sign, and close that part of the file tree.

Now Left-click on the + sign next to,

1.My Computer
2.Then - Local Disk (C:)
3.Now scroll down to - Program Files

Scroll through these programs. See ArcSoft? Left-click on the ArcSoft name. The individual folders and files will appear on the right, in the large window.

Now double-click on a Folder. The folder will open, and display individual files. Right-click on a File, then in the drop down menu, Left-click on Delete.

You may not be able to delete the entire folder for ArcSoft, (Too large for Recycle Bin), but you can delete individual files, until the folders are empty 'husks'.
Then you can use the Back arrow at the upper left, and Right-click on the folder/s. Delete them.

You may come to a file that has an extension - .dll
You may not be able to delete this type of file. It's okay. After you shut down your computer, wait 1 minute, come back into Windows Explorer, and try it again.

Finally use CCleaner, and get rid of the file fragments.

I know this is long, and I apologize in advance. has worked for me to delete stubborn programs for years. (Norton, AOL, and others)

Has worked better than using the Uninstall feature, if the program comes with one, and any Uninstall option listed on the Internet for a program.

Have questions? I'm all ears.

Missing PhotoGallery.msi


Hello,

You can approach this a few ways:

Cleanup A Problem Setup
An additional possibilities if the above info doesn't do the trick:

Remove PhotoGallery (you can reinstall it afterwards if you use it):
  • Check to see if you can find PhotoGallery in the ADD/REMOVE programs list (in START menu / CONTROL PANEL). If you use Windows Vista this will be called Programs And Features.
  • If it is listed, click on it then click on the UNINSTALL button or link (either to the right or near top of the window).
  • Once removed, shut down the computer (not RESTART), wait 20 seconds, then power back up.
  • The errors should be gone
If the problem persists, try the following:
  • Download the Windows Installer CleanUp Utility which is free from here (about 1/3 down the page for the download link):
    http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=290301
  • Install the utility
  • Run the cleanup utility (usually found on the START / (ALL) PROGRAMS menu).
  • Scroll down until you see 'PhotoGallery'
  • Select Remove
  • Shut down the computer (not RESTART), wait 20 seconds, then power back up.
Hope this helps out,

Chris
