Try this
go to start>all programs>accessories>system tools>system restore. try to recall a date when your programs used to work well that is highlighted on the calendar and select that date. it will not erase or delete any of your files but will only remove any new program/software or updates that was installed in your computer

Code error


Before following the suggestions given below please make sure that you have the latest firmware for your DVD burner drive. Please contact your vendor or visit the manufacturer's website for the latest updates.

Please follow the steps mentioned below to resolve the issue:

1) Empty the contents of the C:\Windows\temp folder and C:\temp folder, if you have one. Then empty Recycle Bin.

2) Defragment your hard drive. DVD video files are very large and can quickly fill your hard drive to capacity. A fragmented hard drive can cause problems during DVD burning. Make sure to defragment your drive(s) regularly.

3) To avoid any compatibility issues, please close all other software and utility applications including virus scans, screen saver and instant messaging software before you launch PowerDirector.

4) Increase Virtual memory :

1. Right click on "MyComputer"
2. Select Properties -> Advance
3. Click on "settings" under Performance.
4. Select "Advance"
5. Click on "change" under Virtual memory.
6. Select "Custom" and enter initial value as "512" and Max value as "3096".

NOTE: If your existing settings are higher than recommended then leave them as before.

5) Please check whether the drive where you have installed Power Director software has enough space on it. At least 15 GB of free space is required and recommended while burning a DVD.

Now, try to burn the DVD at low burning speed.

If the issue still persists, try to uninstall other CD/DVD burning software like Nero, EasyCD Creator, Direct CD etc. Two burning software installed on same computer are known to cause conflict due to common files in them.

Also disable the XP built-in burning software. To disable the Windows built-in burning software:
- Open My Computer.
- Right-click your CD-RW or DVD drive and click Properties.
- Select the Recording tab.
- Remove the check mark from the 'Enable CD recording on this drive' check box.
- Click OK.

Also make sure that the total size of the video does not exceed the disc limit. (It is recommended that the total size should be less than 4.3 GB)

Now, close all other software and utility applications and then try the 'Create a DVD folder' option in the burning options screen and let us know of the result.

If the DVD folder is burned successfully, then the issue is burner specific and not software specific.

If the issue still not resolved, you may need to reinstall the Power Director software. Uninstall other burning softwares and then reinstall Power Director.

Follow the steps given below to reinstall your PowerDirector. Before installing your program, please close your MSN messenger, since we found that MSN messenger my lock some installation programs.

i) Uninstall PowerDirector software:

a.)Start--> Programs -->Cyberlink PowerDirector --> Uninstall PowerDirector

b.)Start --> Run --> type "regedit" --> click "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE" --> click
"Software" --> click "Cyberlink" --> "PowerDirector". Delete folder "PowerDirector".

c.)Start --> Run --> type "regedit" --> click "HKEY_CURRENT_USER" --> click
"Software" --> click "Cyberlink" --> "PowerDirector". Delete folder "PowerDirector".

d)Reboot your PC.

ii) Reinstall PowerDirector. (NOTE: Before installation please close MSN Messenger, if open)

Now try again to 'Create a DVD folder'.

Go ahead with burning DVD only if the DVD folder is created successfully and without errors.

Can't get webcam to work on messenger, it used to work, I must be doing something wrong do h I have to download a program


Reinstall you webcam drivers doing the following:

Unplug your webcam from your computer.
  1. Reboot your computer.
  2. Insert your webcam's manufacturer installation CD into the CD-ROM drive and follow the installation prompts.
Note: If the setup program doesn't start automatically within a few seconds, you need to manually start the installation process.
To manually start the installation process:
  1. Click Start from the taskbar in the lower-left corner of your computer screen.
  2. Open the Run window and type d:\setup in the text area.
    Note: The "d" indicates the path to your CD-ROM drive. If your CD-ROM drive is located in a different path, you need to replace the "d" with the correct path.
  3. If you've downloaded the most recent software driver from the webcam manufacturer's website, run that installation program now.
    Note: Most webcam manufacturers maintain the latest webcam software drivers on the download or support areas of their website. Just download it and save it to your computer.
  4. Follow the instructions provided by the webcam setup program.
    Note: Plug in your webcam USB cord only when prompted. (This is usually done after rebooting your computer.)

I had msn messenger. I did an up grade and when it was done it threw me back to the very old msn messenger. I removed the msn messenger from hard drive and out of regedit. But I can not down load msn...


I think there maybe is something you are missing in your description. The hard drive itself has no bearing on a download. Particularly if it is your main drive. Did you do a manual uninstall, used the uninstall feature from the old MSN program or, did you use windows un-installer?. First, i would try restore to a date prior to your un-installation. After that, I would first try to un-installed again using teh Windows "Add /Remove programs" in Windows control panel. This is based on you having either vista or XP. You can use any of may freeware utilities to clean your register (not reg edit) but, if you are not very saavy in computers, I would let the registry as is. Then, download the msn upgrade and, install it from your computer (not from the web download window). If this does not help, oplease post again with more details on your system.

Dell webcam manager working with msn messenger?


as ive told others, make sure u actually turn off the software program that came with the computer before using with msn! u should be able to have it on while using it but for some reason some computers wont allow it! it "tells itself" that there are 2 programs trying to run the web cam when really only one is.
but because the program is on, it sees it as being used in 2 places at 2 different times!

try turning off and exiting the software (dell webcam manager) and then go onto msn and try using ur web cam!! make sure the dell manager is exited, then when u have a msn window open, turn the cam on and see if ur friends can see u then..

good luck..
if this doesnt work ill check back and see what i can do for you!

Yes,
You can go to the camera's site and track down the proper drivers etc and download it that way (your camera's make and model}
or
Take the cd to a friends house and have them email you the entire install
or
have a friend upload it to a free storage internet sight.(like, http://www.yousendit.com/) where you can download it later directly to your computer.
Or
Have them do a file transfer to you using msn messenger or yahoo messenger.
Thank you and good luck *s*
