Try this, and let me know what happens. Go to start>run. In your run box type "dxdiag" without the quotes. When it opens up, click on the displat tab at the top. On the left hand side you'll see DirectX features. Make sure the DirecDraw Acceleration , Direct3D Acceleration, and the AGP Texture Acceleration is enabled. You might have something a little different depending on pc configuration but make sure everything in that category is enabled. You can test them if you like. There are buttons on the right to test them. If not enabled, enable them, click on save all information and exit. Try your game again. If this solves your problem PLEASE rate this as fixed. If it did not, do not rate yet. Just add a comment and let me know what happened. I'll be happy to assist you further. Thanks issac.

Sony vizio wont boot up


The most common reason a computer won't start can be a piece of hardware has failed or is causing a problem but that hardware isn't usually a hard drive, the part of your computer that stores all of your files. To fix such kinds of issue, you can take the following steps.1.create a bootable usb or cd ,there are kinds of software for you to complete this step, you can choose Fix Boot,EasyBootDisk or Windows Boot Genius. I suggest you to use Windows Boot Genius, it is easier and more effective.2.boot your computer from the created disk3.fix the issue after run the softwareBy the way, before any further steps you should make sure the power supply is good. Any hardware issues such as pc power and cable,motherboard corrupted should be troubleshooted.I don't suggest you to try the solution above until you are sure there is nothing to do with the hardware.

SHUTDOWN ALL OF A SUDDEN WHEN I'M CHEKING MY EMAIL, I TURN IT ON, STAYS ON, CAN'T BOOT, INSERTED OS TO FIX IT BUT JUST SPIN AND STOP, POWER STAYS ON AND FANS ARE NOT MOVING, BLINKING LIGHT IN MOTHERBOARD,...


what hardware have you replaced? do you hear a beeping sound? try removing everything (HDD, DVD/CD/FLOPPY/)except the proc,video card and mem on the motherboard and try to boot. check if it will give you bios. if it still the same, do an isolation test. the main reason why its not responding is your computer doesnt complete POST. POST is one of the process the computer do to test all the hardware that is connected on the motherboard, if one fails and POST doesnt complete, you wont see the BIOS startup screen. Theres a lot of possible fault on this concern. since theres a lot of things connected on the motherboard

I can't run any games!


Thanks for a question
Computer games have specified minimum requirements of hardware that you need to have to run game properly. The "other computer" may have better specifications and therefore let the game run. Please check this subject and don't hesitate to ask more if you need further assistance. Good Luck

Ii have a message ' no active mixer device'


If a reboot does not fix this error, you may have faulty, incomplete driver information, windows is known for this at times.

uninstall your sound drivers from the hardware console, then reboot the PC and re-install them.

to get to the hardware console:

XP
right-click on " my computer " > Properties > Hardware > Device Manager > sound, video and game controllers

Vista / Windows 7
start > right-click on " my computer " > Properties > " Device manager > sound, video and game controllers

Volume


dear,
can u see a speaker or volume icon at the tray, where the clock exists.
if yes, then click on it and check the pin that goes to cpu for speakers.

if you cant see the icon then check the installation of sound card from:
right click to "my computer" go to properties--->hardware---->device manager---->then check in sound, game controller, if u have the availibility of sound card there,

if u have an extra sound card installed on PCI slot in the motherboard then fix the card properly or reinstall it properly..

dont hesitate to ask further

Problem playing a computer game I bought


what game is it? sometimes your graphics hardware can stop games from working if you haven't got the right hardware. or sometimes it can be as simple as not having the right version of direct x installed on your computer. Check the requirements for the game on the back of the disk case then check that you have all of the recommendations that it asks for e.g. graphics card, direct x, harddrive space, 3d accelaration etc..

Hi

Ok First to ensure that your CD-Rom / DVD is installed correctly

Goto the control panel if you can see a whole list of icons find and click on system

otherwise find Performance and maintenance and then click on system

now up the top of this new window find and click the hardware tab

finally click on the Device Manager button , this will bring up the Device manager window


in this window look for and expand by clicking the plus Icon next to DVD/CD-ROM Drives

if you see anything in here your CD drive is installed. You will probably find that either you optical drive is either disconnected and the ribbon cable connecting it to the motherboard will need to be checked , or you have got a faulty optical drive

If you cant see anything in here go back to the control panel and find add hardware if you cant see that icon click on printers and other hardware and in the left hand side bar click on add hardware.

This will bring up a step by step wizard

after clicking next on the initial screen windows will do a scan and try and detect any hardware devices that have not been installed yet. If on the next screen you are asked "Have you connected the hardware?" please open up your PC and check the ribbon connection on the reverse of the optical drive and make sure the power connectors etc are properly seated.

If this works follow the on screen steps and installation will be straight forward.

Hopefully this will solve your problems

Cheers.

If you have any other queries please respond

Thankyou

Any computer would freeze either due to a hardware conflict or due to some software installed which is taking up all the resources and your PC stops responding. Have you made any changed recently? Installed any new hardware or software?
