Hi Grammie!
Since you are not that familiar with computers I have to add a detailed description. I may need your corporation as well.
Firstly Adobe Flash Player when you click on the Adobe site to download (you will be directed their), it will be downloaded and installed automatically. It needs minimal user intervention. Just installing Adobe Flash Player will not solve the problem as well. You need another Component(these are known as Plug-Ins) which is the Adobe Shockwave Player which is a must for other browsers as well. :-) Please let me know the Operating System and Web Browser you are using. I recommend Google Chrome to play these Facebook Games.

  1. Have you checked whether your Flash player got installed?
  2. There may be the recent version which you have but have you checked the version before? As you are not familiar with the Systems I think you have not.
  3. Even though Farmville, Treasure Island, Mafia Wars, Texas Hold'em Poker, there may be other issue rather than Flash Player.
  4. Do you have the ability to PLAY these games even if it says you have to install the Recent Version? Because that message appear some times. Since I am a heavy Facebook gamer I know a-z about these games. If you are able to play the games however, you can ignore the message as well as this solution. But the below solution will help you to identify the Versions of the Required Components and update them if necessary
Now the Solution
Lets check some stuff first. Lets check the versions of your Flash Player.
Please use this link from Adobe. Flash Player Version
By using this link you will see your Operating System Type as well (if you didn't know). You must check whether you have Flash Player Version 10,1,82,76 ( Which is As an example you will see WIN 10,1,82,76
Win is to describe the Operating System Windows.
Please include the COMPLETE OUTPUT you get from here in the next reply. However if you have an obsolete version of the player (which has a version number below the, lets Upgrade the player. Scroll down to the Upgrade section.
Now lets check whether the Adobe Flash Player got installed and working
Use this Link
Adobe Flash Player - About
If you see the Animated Movie which says "Adobe Flash Player Successfully Installed", its Properly Installed and Working. So there is a different issue which is related to flash player. However if it has not been installed properly, it will ask you to Install it.You will not be able to see any Flash Presentation then. Scroll down to the Installation section to Install it.
  • If you see a blank page your installation is successful but security settings have not been configured properly.

Include the complete output you get.
Now lets check the Shockwave player.
Please go to this link first. Shockwave player tester from Adobe
If the player has already been installed, you will see a Blue Colored message saying "Installation Complete". You will see the Version Information as well, which you have to include in the next Reply.
You will see some Blue Colored screen with buttons which are Create, See and About. Move the mouse pointer and the screen will show you the related information. If everything goes fine then you have the Shockwave player installed properly. However, if the Version is below than you gave to go to the Upgrade section down below and Update it.
If it has not been installed however it will tell you. Please proceed to the Installation section to install it. Please include the output in your next Reply.
  • If you see a blank page your installation is successful but security settings have not been configured properly and its not scripting.
Upgrade section
  • Before proceed Make Sure that you have Upgraded your Web Browser and installed security patches. Actually if you use Windows (genuine version) its automatic. Other browsers will let you know whether they have updates available.
  • Recent versions of all Web Browsers.
  1. IE - 8 (9 will be released soon)
  2. Firefox - 3.6.8 (4 will be released soon)
  3. Google Chrome - Download Link. Best browser for Facebook games. Not the most secure however.
In here what we actually do is we are removing flash player and do a new clean installation. First you have to Remove the flash player. Go to the link below and download the required component.
Un-install Flash Player Un install Shockwave Player - Both are executable files. Download and Run. Do a virus check if possible using the Anti virus Application of your System.
You can upgrade your players from these links. First link is from Adobe and the second one is an alternative link. In case of that your installation was not successful.
Adobe Flash Player
  1. Follow the given instructions. Player gets installed Automatically after you have downloaded it.
  2. If your browser gives Active-X Installation Warnings, please let me know. Write it down.
  3. YOU MUST RESTART YOUR BROWSER if the Installation was successful.
  1. when you are using Softpedia, use the Mirror which suites your System. If you use Internet Explorer, use the appropriate link. If you use other browsers, use the upper most link. Use links from US which is more secure than RO.
  2. Download and Double Click the file. Do a Virus scan if you have one in your system prior to the installation.
Adobe Shockwave Player
Full Standalone Players Download from Adobe From here you can obtain every Full Package of Adobe Players.
Softpedia is a secure place to download applications. It provides better security than other sites. However non of those sites are 100% secure. :-)
Part 1 Contd.

    New Installation

    Skip the above Un installation Procedures. Just download and Install them. Use Links from the Upgrade Section.

    Please update me with your next reply because if you have installed it you need to configure it as well.

    If you were unable to Install, either you are prevented from installing it (or installing activeX is prohibited) or having a problem with the Windows Installer (Operating System related issue).

    Sorry about the spaces and alignment issues of the post. Its a common thing related with our Text Editor.

    Good luck!

As my farmville is loading it freezes and then the screen goes black. I cannot play . Any idea's on how to rectify

Try updating your version of Adobe Flash Player. This sounds like your current plugin couldn't handle the updated changes that farmville may have made.

When I am on farmville , my trees and other bits are not loading. just circles.

Hi there,
You need to remember that Farmville is still in beta. If you are able to load Farmville then Flash is working properly on your computer. The problem isn't on your end, it's on Zynga's side. Give this a try... Open up Farmville in a completely different web browser, like Firefox or Google Chrome. If you're still having the same problem, then the issue is on Zynga's side and not yours.

If it works in one browser but not the other, come back to this page and post a response. I will be happy to assist you further. :)

Loading Game... If your game does not load within 10 seconds, you may need to upgrade your version of Flash. Please do so by clicking here farmville

There are 2 ways you can update Flash Player which is needed for Farmville:
1. From Adobe website, click Download now and it will self install:
2. If you are behind a proxy, it may not work, so you need to get a standalone version from a software website like Softpedia for Windows:

Have internet explorer 8 flashplayer 10 shock wave I still can't load farmville in facebook nor in zynga. The dowloading bar keeps stucking almost halfway. I did cleare my cache, internet history...

Zynga recommends using Google Chrome for Farmville. If you want to continue with Internet Explorer you need to update it, your version is seriously out of date. I don't know your operating system so I will post a link with several options. If your operating system is relatively current I would update to Internet Explorer 11.
