My laptop runs really slow & windows media player doesn't work properly


We need more info before we can properly diagnose your Media Player issue. Is the content you are playing from the Internet or is it saved to the hard drive?

Please test Media Player by doing the following:
- Reboot the laptop
- find a local video file that is saved to your hard drive
- double click it and see if it plays correctly

If the file plays correctly then the issue was either the laptop needed to be rebooted OR the content that plays slowly is from the Internet and your Internet connection is not fast enough to play the video smoothly.

HP s3420f BSOD Vista

Vista is a DEAD,OS. (ended now)
got the HP VISTA install disks, or waiting for this moment to happen
as all do.
seem screens bad too. try another borrowed DT screen as a test? easy no?
but.... both main processors , shut down. IF?
what if the GPU chip is overheating, ever do DUST bunny SERVICE
(vacuum it out?) no PC lasts for 10 years and not fill with dust

  1. bad memory chips, try all sticks 1 by one, to prove it.
  2. corrupted VISTA. or Virus infected as most are this old.
  3. low power, power supply in unit weak or noisy.
  4. bad HDD, disk errors, run check desk yet?
  5. reload VISTA fresh? HP media set not MS.
  6. or worse there is always worse.

How do I turn the schedule up date off

This is an outrageous tactic by Google Earth! This is a virtual virus infecting the machine.
In addition, closing down google earth plus and forcing the switch to this abomination is totally unaccepatble.
I have found google earth to be an interesting toy, and even sometimes useful.
However, I refuse to be abused by this arrogant, high handed and stupid approach to updates.
Even Microsoft allows control over updates. The previous post is a good example of why.
The reason is, unless you can guarantee perfect updates, and also guarantee to repair/ compensate for damages, you are needlessly putting users at risk.
You should check out the lively discussions and opinions of you new policy on
You should also take a lesson from Sony's ******** move that installed malware. Ask them how much it cost them in the long run.
You should also review the history of the turbotax moves that were eventually responsible for intuit abandoning an equally repugnant policy.
I will use my current version of plus until you turn it off or end this ridiculous forced update scheme. Then GOODBYE GOOGLE!
ps I am switching all my default search engines to yahoo!

If the computer is restarted it is slow to respond. When does respond it very slow. It seems to hang up before it display the hp logo. the same occassionally happens coming out of sleep or hiberation...

Slow booting can be caused by several things. Usually when it hangs it is a driver or update program that is having problems. For example when adobe reader updates it can take a few minutes to check to see if there is a update and so on. These are annoying as the intent is they pop up first thing to say they have an update instead of doing in the background and showing a message a few minutes after booting.

What can also happen is having to reboot it or force it to reboot it can corupt a setup and the program stalls or won't run the next time.

What you need to do is remove any programs you can out of the startup menu to start with. There are a couple of speed loaders that may be in here. Office and adobe as examples. Just move them out of the startup or delete them. They don't need to run and I've never seen them actually save any time in how fast the programs start.
There are other programs such as MSN or other programs that are set by default to run at startup. Those you can change to start when you start them not when windows does. These also can slow things down bu usually when you see the desktop.

The next place to look is add remove programs. Look for any programs that you have recently installed or do not use anymore. If you can remeber you may be able to spot which one was the one that was installed just before everything slowed down. Again this could be updates or corrupt parts of the program.

At this point if you haven't found te problem then it will be either a virus or corrupt driver. Depending on what version of windows you have you can run regedit or msconfig from the start/run window and then look at what starts up.

You should also try running antivirus or antispyware programs. Spyware tend to be dumber versions of viruses. Those will keep downloading more and more until the computer is running so slow it may take an hour or so just to put. There are several online sites that will run searches and let you fix them. there are a lot more that do the search and say spend money. A good one is called housecall. It is good at find viruses and spyware and gets rid of them.

Thats covers quite a bit but you should be able to narrow it down and then if it still is slow get specific help to finish it up if it is still slow.

Computer freezes when trying to access My Computer in any program

Could be a program running in background. Try to go to msconfig ( click on start, run, and type msconfig). On the startup items, disable all and reboot. See if the performance improves. If it does, enable startup program on msconfig one by one and reboot. to check what startup item is causing the slow performance. If it does not improve, might be an unnecessary driver for the system. Reinstall windows xp.

Using google earth a blue message comes on & computer shuts down (too quick to read the message in blue writing) then restarts on it's own How to fix??? tried direct X start up still shuts down.... 512...

Try to boot the computer into safe mode. If that can be done, uninstall Goofle Earth, and get into the system restore and restore the computer back before the Google install and reboot normally.

After downloading google earth--I get this error message constantly no matter what program I am trying to access. I have un installed the program to no avail. c:/proga~1/google/google~1/ GOEC61~1DLL is...

Install, then reboot your computer. Make sure when you install, you are signed in as the administrator (that you have rights to install programs...). Once you log back into Windows, go to add remove programs and uninstall Google earth. Reboot again.. Make sure you are not receiving the error. If not, try installing again. The problem seems to be that the dll in question is not registering with the system properly.

Load google earth on my hard drive

Uninstall the program. Do you have a registry cleaner, no, then put Ccleaner in google and do a search.
It is a free one, and works ok for free. You uninstall the program,now run Ccleaner. now if it picks up
more then 100 problems, you have had a very slow PC, I bet you get around 500-1000.
Now go to google earth and download the new edition and install it. This should solve your problem.
Hope it works out good for you. Any other questions,just post back,everyone is more than happy to help you.
