I installed Windows XP and now my Movie Maker doesn't work anymore! How can I resolve this? Movie make is so easy to use. I miss it. Thanks

Here's the Microsoft Page for using Movie Maker on XP,

and here's the Download Site for Movie Maker XP,

It's installed through Windows Update normally so you should just install every Windows XP Update available. Go to the Start Button>All Programs> Windows Update and click on it. Follow all the prompts and say yes or ok to everything.

Good Luck

Publish and save your Windows Movie Maker movie to your computer

As most of you know, I make computer video tutorials and post them to Youtube for everyone to learn about computers. I do not use anything fancy or even expensive, in fact I use the free Camstudio program to record the tutorial and Windows Movie Maker to edit it... Windows movie make comes with most versions of Windows. In this tutorial I will show you how save and publish your windows movie maker production to your computer. This way you can watch it anytime you like, email it to friends, or upload it to Youtube.

What do you need to save a movie to your computer?

* You will need to have Windows Movie Maker on your computer. If you have a normal version of Windows then you will have Windows Movie Maker installed as well, however some versions do not have it. For example Windows Seven Ultimate doesn't have it.
* You will need a finished movie ready to save. You might have used Camstudio or even a video camera to record it.
* You will need storage space to save the movie to. If you save your movie as an .avi then it will take up twice as much space as a movie saved as .wmv. I usually save my movies as a .wmv as Youtube happily takes this format.

How to Publish my movie to save it on my computer?

When using Windows Movie Maker instead of saying save movie, this program uses the term "publish movie". Therefore we will publish the movie to the computer. This will save the finished movie file to play at a later date.

In this tutorial I will presume that you have finished editing your movie and now want to save it onto your computer.

1. In the tasks menu on the left side, when you have your program open, there is a menu. If you do not see this menu, press on File at the top and choose publish from the drop down menu.
2. If you do see the menu, go to the Publish section.
3. Click on "This computer". See the screenshot below.
4. A Publish movie dialog box will appear.
5. Fill in your movie name.
6. Press on browse to choose where to save your movie on your computer. See screenshot below.
7. Then press the next button.
8. The next window will appear.
9. Choose what setting you want your movie to be. If you choose the top choice, Best quality for playback then your movie will be an AVI and will be bigger in size and need more storage space. See below.
10. If you choose the more settings choice, you can choose more options.
11. See below, if you click the drop down arrow you can see the choices.
12. I usually choose "Windows Media DVD Quality (PAL) (3.0 Mbps)"
13. Down below it will show you the exact details of what your movie will be.
14. Now when you are ready you can press on the publish button and the movie will be converted and saved to your computer.

Windows movie maker will not burn to DVD. Says to

As you may be aware, Movie Maker doesn't natively burn DVDs. Or Video CDs (VCDs), which are playable by any DVD Players, but are of significantly lower quality than DVD.
What do you need to into DVD? How about MyDVD is the easiest and direct route, requiring little or no format conversion.

Open this browser to see more about this program.

Good luck!
Hope this might help you a lot.

The touch screen homepage on my computer doesn't work anymore.


When you sat the screen doesnt work anymore. What is the exact problem? When your initially start your PC do you notice any programs not appearing that where there before?

Have you also tried wiping the screen gently with screen wipes as fingerprints over time can cause some issues.

I cant connect to any networks i need drivers

You need to give a clearer description of the problem you are having and the type of computer you are using and the way all the components are set up. Are you using a network connection or a direct connection to the internet.What type of windows program are you using , what type of movie maker are you having problems with.Did this problem just start or have you had a ongoing problem that just got worse.You can try using the safe-start up mode in windows and try deleting the last program that you used before you starting having this problem.Go into the Bios on start up and find the start up in safe mode and try deleting the program and see if all your functions are restored. If not you may have to further troubleshoot the situation to determine the problem. If all this fails try restoring you computer to a earlier setup with the windows restore function. Hope this helps you with your problem.

Poor video quality with windows movie maker

Windows movie maker is just a generic xp add on that I am sure was an after thought and never will give you good quality movies it does alright and should give acceptable results if you have a good graphics card and vga card but try useing nero to burn movies the burning speeds can be slowed right down to give exellent quality and if you just want a reasonable quality dvd you can turn the burn speed up to burn faster but you always sacrafice quality for speed on any dvd burning program unless you go get a profestional one and upgrade to much higher quality graphics and vga cards you also need a good deal of ram to

Reset my Compaq D51C PC Desktop BIOS

Hey there mat-rix, the errors reported are configuration related. You can fix this problem by downloading a reference disk from IBM Here you can get pub/refdisks/rf5060a.dsk (this is the image file), and also get pub/utils/ to write image onto a diskette. Once you get the disk prepared, boot with it, and run setup. If the errors still occur, replace your battery with a new one. and try it all over again. Good Luck!
