URGENT POST: Radio Stream not working with Vista now? Please help

Hi there Please Please help me with this issue as its affecting my job!

Im using Vista Home Basic on a Toshiba laptop, AOL is my ISP and Macafee is my viral software - and for some reason the radio broadcast that I listen to on the William Hill website (here in the UK) isnt working - Ive updated Java, flashplayer9, shockwave, Windows, unblocked the pop up facility, made sure the firewall wasnt blocking this connection etc - - - this is NOTHING to do with mute buttons, sliders or anything like that as the little screen in flash, actually shows you the connection on screen (which is now blank) so I know its not even connecting to the site, so nothing is playing through the screen at all as its not even connecting - so this is NOT a soundcard or volume problem - its a software connection issue.

Something I feel needs to be checked, unchecked, enabled or disabled somwehere and is something probably simple and silly - but its driving me to dispair. the radio stream Im refering to, works perfectly on other XP laptops and on my stand alone system that has XP on it .. but not on this work laptop with Vista on it (but only until recently).

The weekend though, it did do one of its famous system updates and since then a few things went haywire, the clock and date had to be adjusted (I discovered this cause windows live messenger wouldnt work, but its working now) and this radio broadcast wouldnt work, and still isnt working.
My partner (thinking that he was helping) actually did a system restore taking the laptop back a few years lol so retracing the weekends update isnt possible now!

Please please help me if you can!
sincerest regards

Terry

Windows Vista installation failure On some Windows Vista systems Flash Player may be installed, but will not display Flash content. In some cases updating to the latest Flash Player using the included utility can correct the User Account Control settings that cause this problem.
To run the utility, find your installed Flash folder:
  • Right-click C:\Windows\System32\Macromed\Flash\FlashUtil9d.exe
    The letter changes with each Flash version, so may be "FlashUtilb.exe" or "FlashUtile.exe"
  • Select "Run as Administrator"
  • Follow the steps to complete the Flash Player installation
  • Restart your computer

While im driving, the radio will turn on and off, and it also cause my power windows not to work. I replaced my radio and the wiring harnest, but the problem still wont stop.


This is not a problem with the radio. If the problem affects the radio and power windows, it is most likely an electronic control board that runs both circuits. Chances are other circuits are affected as well, like wipers, internal light, cigarrette lighter, blinkers etc. It all depends on your car make, model and year. Please check functionality of all other items when this happens then post again with your car year, make and model.

Hi i have a DVC 100 , im using it to stream my live gaming events on justinTV , i can stream a perfect picture but i can't get sound to work with the stream, im using Adobe falsh media encoder to help...


Welcome to Fixyah,

I believe that DVC 100 whend it comes for streaming is concern is not supported to used it and all I know is the only supported is to capture and record the video coming from VHS, Camcorder, VHR and DVD player using the program coming from it.

Cannot access the website indicated in the following message.[12/8/2009 2:15:38 PM] Software Updates: URGENT SYSTEM SCAN NOTIFICATION ! PLEASE READ CAREFULLY !! http://www.updaterb.org/ For the link to...


This is a trap which you don't want to get caught in. Typically when you visit this type of site, the program you end up downloading is malware.

I would use your existing anti-virus software to scan our computer. If you don't have a good one, try Microsoft Security Essentials which is free online.

Adding a dialup connection


I think you might need to be on an account with administrative rights to complete that kind of change on a Vista system...Make sure you are logged on that way to begin with if possible...
When you don't have administrative rights, you can't set up programs that affect other users.
Here is a troubleshooter that might help you resolve this Vista network connections
and Troubleshoot Internet Connections
Also, you might take a look in your Device Manager and see that your modem is enabled and working properly.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread. If I've managed to answer your question or solve a problem, please take a moment to kindly rate this post....thanks!

Hi,

All drivers are hardware specific therefore it would be required to determine the brand and specific model number of the laptop. In some cases, there are multiple versions of the same model so might as well post this also.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

URGENT CALL:- Critical Error that keeps restarting system?


Definately not a "major issue"... it is a Software issue rather than a Hardware issue...
And most likely a conflict with your ActiveX controls...

Try This....
Go to Start...Programs......Windows Update..enable if disabled.. and it will search for updates and hopefully install the SP1 update...
This update download apparently has patches for the exact error you have and that is a typical Vista "hiccup" error....

try that, if it doesnt help still, we can go from there..

Printer not Recognised


Hi,

Depending on your Operating System, the problem may be due to or you may need to:
1. check if in the printer properties, the port setting is set to USB;
2. If you are using Windows Vista, you may need to initially resolve the USB errors before moving on to making your printer work. This is a known Vista issue and Microsoft has issued a patch/update to resolve this problem. Pls try here or here.
3. update the USB drivers of your motherboard from the manufacturer's website rather than that of Microsoft;
4. uninstall and re-install including the USB controllers and not only the printer.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
