Preferred Solution: Lock-on ( Lo-mac) game-patches or cheats

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: Lock-on ( Lo-mac) game-patches or cheats

Check the manufacturer for an official patch. That's the safest bet.

As for cheats, since there is a few of them go here to choose:

Answer:Need Cheats for Old PC Game: Desperados

You'd probably be better off in a game forum, especially one at the company that made the game. Cheats are pretty specific knowledge that only people who played the game would know about.

I like to play on-line game but find that most players use cheat programs which takes all the fun out of playing. Is there any way to block their cheat programs and have a real game??? I play a lot of pogo games and I see it a lot there.
Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks.
 

Answer:overriding game cheats

Probably not. However for most on-line shooters there is a program called 'Punkbuster' being used. There's always a select few that still are able to cheat but less common. In pogo? That's suprising. Not sure if they have a 'report cheaters' option. But that's what i would be looking for in that regard.

I am VERY new to computers and have purchaced two games:Mafia and Postal 2, there are patches for the games and I have downloaded both.

I think the Mafia patch worked simply by downloading it, but the Postal 2 patch didn't. How do install the patch?

Thanks in advance for helping a noob.
 

Answer:How do you install game patches?

What is the name of the file(s) you downloaded? Specifically, what is the extension (the three letters after the . like .exe or .zip)?

If it is .exe you just double click it and it should ask you for information about where to apply the patch if it doesn't auto detect. If it is .zip you may have to unzip it and apply the files yourself.

I hope that helps....

I'm not sure if this is the right place for something like this, but here are some basic "cheats" I gleaned from another web site. Solitaire and FreeCell are nice time killers, but the Pinball is really the coolest of the cheezy built-in Windows games. So here's some basic cheats for all you pinballers:

Note that the 3D Pinball window must be active for these codes to work.

>> Regain your old rank from a previous game by starting a new game and immediately typing rmax . Each time you type this secret command, you?ll advance one rank level.
>> Get an extra ball while the Awaiting Deployment message displays by typing 1max
>> Activate the Gravity Well by starting a new game and immediately typing gmax
>> Get an unlimited number of balls and essentially play for as long as you like by starting a new game and immediately typing bmax . Each time you lose a ball, a new one will appear. (While playing with an unlimited number of balls, none of the other tricks will work.)
>> Control the ball with your mouse by starting a new game and immediately typing hidden test . When you do, you can click the ball with your left mouse button and essentially drag it anywhere you want and rack up an unbelievable number of points.

Keep in mind that there isn?t a text box into which you enter these secret codes ? you simply type them.

Have Fun!
(if this is in the wrong forum, feel free to move it -dlb- )
 

Answer:Windows XP Pinball - Game "Cheats"

This is a problem going on for a couple of months now. I can d/load M/Soft updates and install, but I can't d/load IE7beta, Google Earth 3, game patches. I get to the green install blocks and thats it, it disappears. I did see someone who had a similar problem but can't find it. I do not have a lot of important stuff on my PC, but can I do a repair without losing everything. Any help would be most grateful.

Answer:Unable to d/load game patches

Have you tried re-installing your internet connection disc from your ISP for installing your modem. It maybe just a bad driver, or check your modem is plugged right into the USB port and all the other connections in the telephone line.

Question: Game Lock Up

Ok i will try to explain all this in one go. i have microsoft flight sim 2004 just installed, The problem been is that after so long say 1, 2 mins it just locks up and i have to restart my computer from the restart button. In this game, it gives you a diagnostic tool wich allows you to boot the game in safe mode and play it, to see if there is a hardware fault, I did this and it didnt freeze or hang. But as soon i i start it the proper way its back to it hanging and freezing. So this is suggesting that i have a hardware fault. What does anyone think can be the problem, I run other games and dont have this problem, my card is a Geforce Fx 5900 and i have all the latest driver and direct x installed. My OS Is XP Home with service pack 2 and i have 512 ddr Amd 2500 processer.

Question: 2nd Game Lock Ups

Hey, really not sure where to put this but this has been bugging me for a while now and I should really see if I can get some help to fix it. Quite awkward to explain the problem but ill give it a try;

If I start up my computer, I can then load up any game that I have with no worries and play for as long as I want, however when I then close the game, and try to open up another game (could be the same game again) then my computer will attempt to start it, and lockup on a black screen with the loading cursor not spinning requiring a system restart.

At first I thought it was to do with steam as it appeared to be only steam games which did it, but it does seem to do this with non-steam games too (However for some reason it does not with starcraft 2). So this has really been getting annoying having to restart if I want to change game.

Any help on this problem, or things that you could need me to post up?

Oh and I have done various memory, CPU and GPU hardware tests and nothing seems to be wrong, and this is with the latest drivers and a clean windows install so I really dont understand what could be causing it.

Thanks

Hello, after purchasing a new PC, I can no longer play a game. The game in question is Medal of Honor Allied Assault, a very old game now.

I am running:

Windows XP
Western Digital Caviar SE16 250GB SATA-II 16MB Cache
Intel Core 2 Duo E6750 "LGA775 Conroe" 2.66GHz (1333FSB)
Gigabyte GA-P35C-DS3R (Socket 775) PCI-Express DDR2 & DDR3 Motherboard
GeIL 2GB (2x1GB) PC2-6400C4 800MHz Ultra Low Latency DDR2 Dual Channel Kit
BFG GeForce 8800 GT OC 512MB GDDR3 HDTV/Dual DVI (PCI-Express)

The problem is that I cannot run the game for more than 30 minutes without it locking up and giving me a system memory error:
http://i6.photobucket.com/albums/y221/pk89/error.jpg
As soon as I start the game I get frequent lock-ups, where the game basically ceases for around 0.2/0.5 seconds. These lock-ups increase in frequency and length until finally the game crashes, with a repeating audio of whatever was playing as it crashed - like a skipping record.
If you know about the "lagometer" in games, I have taken pictures of the lagometer, showing the green line disturbance that occurs at each lock-up. You can see that the first picture shows the minimal disturbance at the beginning of the session, and the last shows the frequent lock-ups close to crashing.

Answer:Lock-ups and crashes in a game

Try to reset your virtual memory setting.
The file should be a fixed size so that it does not get fragmented, with minimum and maximum set the same
The file should be 2.5 times the size of RAM (or some other multiple)
Go To Start,Control Panel,System,Advanced,under the settings tab select advanced,and on the bottom under Virtual memory settings you can change it to what it needs to be. You can also let your system try to run it but that is only if nothing else works.

So recently I got some new ram and a new BFG 8800GT... I noticed when playing games like NFS Most wanted and Call Of Jaurez that my computer will lock up and freeze and I'll have to restart, I'm not sure if this problem is caused by the new video card or the new ram [its kingston valueram, I have it overclocked just a bit, is any overclocking too much for valueram?]

I heard there was a bad batch of 8800GTs, so I thought it could be that? I picked this one up earlier this month.

More info:

My 8800GT is overclocked to 679/979.

Sometimes when it locks up in Most Wanted it will recover, but graphics and textures will be misplaced, lots of graphical glitches, but when I minimize the game and go back into it all the graphics are fine again.

I recently had some ram slot troubles, certain slots not working, but I took the motherboard out of the case and reset it in there and now all the slots will work.

Anyways, thanks in advance, I want to get some advice before I crack my computer open.

Hello.
This is my first time. I have searched the postings to find a similar problem/solution to no avail so here goes.
I recently upgraded my RAM from 32Mb EDO to 128Mb SDRAM, which was done successfully and picked up on the reboot.
Since then my son has been unable to play Need For Speed 111 Hot Pursuit. Similar cd rom games still work and there are no other system problems. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the game several times. It always gets to the menu from either auto run or the desk top shortcut. The other menu items are ok but when you hit the play button it immediately goes to a blank screen and locks the pc up without error messages. CTRL ALT DELETE doesn't work and I have to reboot. I have tried the game's tech help and at their suggestion upgraded DirectX from version 5 to 8a and checked some settings with no result obviously. I have also exchanged the 128Mb module with the retailer for another one in case there was a fault. I can't think of anything else. Any ideas would be appreciated.

Answer:Flickering monitor, Freezing Computer, and Lock ups in game

First off you should probably place another fan in the case, or another one on the graphics card. Your other temperatures appear to be normal. I was having issues like this awhile back. Try updating your graphics card driver, but use forceware. Here is the link for your card- http://www.nvidia.com/object/winxp_2k_81.98.html . Hope this helps!

Fan IssueI've cleaned my laptop sometime this month after about two years of use. Popped it open, blew everything, popped it back. I saw a post before posting this about removing the battery before cleaning so i'm considering going back and doing that. I usually keep it running in high performance because I use it for gaming. Core/CPU usage is almost never above 10%, currently sitting at 2%-4%. Memory is usually high because I only have a 500GB SSD, currently at 58%. The other stats (disk, network, and GPU), sit at 0 (although GPU will boost to about 60% when gaming). Currently, I have it in balanced mode and set the maximum core usage to 40% and it's still going strong. Any suggestions?  Gaming IssueAlso on a side note, if anyone can assist me with a gaming issue I'm having.

Even when settings are at the lowest settings. In previous times, if I were to uncap, it'd reach above 60 easily consistently but now when it's uncapped, it never goes above 60.

I have been trying to get cheats working on Farcry 2 v. 1.03 however I have come to no avail. Perhaps I am misinterpreting the instructions. Is the "parameter" the thing that pops up when you hit the little command button in the second to top left row of your keyboard? If not then what is the "parameter"?
 

Answer:Fary Cry 2 Cheats

Hi


Wont go into the values of not cheating in games, as I know its great to be able to get through some levels and see how the games unfolds, so and not having FarCry 2 (only have the original) but reading into this what you need to do is to Right Click the shortcut to the game and choose properties

Then in the Target box at the end of the games code say and this one is just my code for Steam and Modern Warfare 2 but it will give you an idea I hope is then the code here is the location of the game "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steam.exe" you enter after the last " the line -GameProfile_GodMode 1 so you gain "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steam.exe" -GameProfile_GodMode 1 which gives you God Mode and just change the text after the " for the cheat you wish to use.

*do remember the shortcut link is mine from Modern Warfare 2 so dont use it as it wont work, just gave it as an example*

hello,

I am currently attempting to find a file on my computer for a game. The game is Wolfenstein, the latest one that just came out in 2009. In order for cheats to be activated, I need to access the wolf.cfg file. However, I cannot locate this file. I am thinking that this file might be hidden, but i dont know how to find hidden files. Any help would be much appreciated! Thanks!

Answer:Wolfenstein cheats help!

Try this.

Click on the Control Panel menu option.

Click on the Appearance and Personalization link.

Click on Show Hidden Files or Folders.

Under the Hidden files and folders section select the radio button labeled Show hidden files and folders.

Remove the checkmark from the checkbox labeled Hide extensions for known file types.

Remove the checkmark from the checkbox labeled Hide protected operating system files.

Press the Apply button and then the OK button.
Now you should see it!

Question: halo cheats

hey guys im trying to figure out how to Start the game with the -console -devmode command line parameter. can someone tell me how?
 

Answer:halo cheats

You have to add -console -devmode to the command line. To view the commande line, right click on the shortcut on your desktop, and hit properties. There you should see it, and jsut add it to the command line, i think you may have to add a space from the original commande line.
Later in-game, press the ~ to bring up console.

I've been playing this for a few months now, and the blasted thing is beating me. I recent got a cheat for altering the desktop short cut's path so that it activates the cheat options in the console, but when I put this in it either tells me that the path is invalid or it just plain doesn't work. Anybody got any ideas on this?
 

Answer:RTCW: My Cheats don't work...

usally, the "cheat" is built into a physical game, not in how the path is loaded. The path goes to a specific file... the EXE file that runs the application. I would suggest to make sure you are typing everything correctly for example / instead of \.

One word of caution. Take a quick look at the rules of this board, It is generally frowned upon discussing "hacking or cracking" of programs (which is ILLEGAL) which is actually what this "cheat code" may be trying to do... Just a friendly word of caution.

Hello! Since the most recent build of W-10 (9879), my caps lock, num lock, and scroll lock lights do not function on either computer on which I have W-10 installed (a desktop with a USB keyboard and a laptop with an integrated keyboard). The keys still work to correctly toggle the functionality, but the keyboard lights don't work. In case it matters, my keyboard's actual backlights and my mouse's internal light (not the laser, the internal LED) are working correctly, it's just the CL, NL, and SL indicators that don't function.

Anyone have any ideas for fixing this?

is it possible to download a saved game with everything unlocked to your xbox so you can have everything???

i thought it could be possible becuase it can read certain disks but what do yall think?
 

Answer:downloading cheats to disk for xbox

Yes, it's possible, but here's how it has to be done:
You have to get one of the memory cards that goes into your controller, and load the saved game into that via your PC, and then put it from there onto your xbox hard drive. One of my friends bought a kit that allowed him to put custom Halo gametypes on his xbox. The best part is the kills aren't limited at 50... he's got deathmatch games that go to 100 and higher. I'm sure it's possible to do the same thing for saved games, giving you all levels, all characters, etc. but I'm not sure if there's anything on the market like that.

I don't believe you can load saved games onto your xbox from a disc you burned on your computer.

Also, if you got one of the memory cartridges, you could just get the saved game from someone else's xbox on which they've already beat the game.

How to enable cheats in Half-Life 2 ? I know that the "~" key is supposed to enable the console. However, from what I researched I need to enable this key via the Half-Life 2 executable. This is apparently done by adding the "-console" switch which at the end of the executable. From what I understand this enables access to the console mode where cheats and such can be entered.

I tried adding that to the executable in the Steam Directory. Since Steam starts the game, I am not sure it is reading it right. No luck. I can't seem to get it to work.

So, what do I need to do to get it working?

Thanks for any help.
 

Answer:Hot To Enable Cheats In Half-Life 2 ?

No, not the actual .exe file. Go to (or make) the shortcut to it (tends to appear on your desktop unless you told the installer not to or moved it) and add the -console switch to that.
Funny, though, because pressing ~ brings up the console for me without the switch. I don't use cheats, though, and I can't recall if it's needed to enter codes.

(If you have no display, hold the power button down for  5 seconds)Disconnect the AC Adapter from the notebook.Remove the battery from the bottom of the notebook.  There will be a switch/button to eject the battery.Wait at least 1 minute with all power sources disconnected.Re-insert the battery and reconnect the AC Adapter and then attempt to power on the notebook.

I have a Ideapad Y560P that shut down suddenly and when we tried to turn it back on, the Caps Lock and Num Lock (on F8 key) lights go on but the computer does not start. I saw a similar thread from 2010 but there was no resolution. I assume that the two lights on at the same time at attempted start indicate some kind of "fault" condition in the computer. I have not been able to get the bios to start so that I could run diagnostics. I pulled the battery and held down power for 30 seconds, pressed start twice, put the battery back in but still won't start. I pulled memory out, trying to get a POST "beep" error but that didn't occur. I put memory back in one dimm at a time. I pulled the Hard Drive out and put it in an external enclosure and was able to extract the information to another laptop so I'm pretty sure I didn't have a hardware Hard Drive failure. Other than the one reference in this forum I haven't seen any information about this kind of, what I assume is a, hardware failure.

I saw the same during setup of a new ASUS Notebook just yesterday that came with Win8.1. Disconcerting was the lack of a light or screen indication that the NumLk key had been pressed, just noticed the same is occurring on my Dell Inspiron 15R that has been Upgraded to Win10 although it is a rescued/rehabbed Notebook, it does have the light on the front edge of the case, just does not turn on.

Not a techie.  Can't get straight answer ANYWHERE.  New laptops tend to NOT have indicators on the keys.  Hoping Windows 10 has indicators that can be turned on and PROBABLY would show up in the tray at the bottom right of the screen. 
I have heard of sites where such things can be downloaded but again NOT a techie, so I hesitate to go outside of Windows/Microsoft for downloads.  I do not know what download sites are safe or spoofs.

Please plain English ... i.e. go to settings etc.  Or just give me a Microsoft approved site for download.

Hi,

My errors are a freezing cursor - dead mouse on every other reboot ..and.. With file transfers from one HDD to another I will frequently get a system lockup of Windows (forcing me to reboot. hard reboot). My System is CLEAN of viri and trojan as wella s spyware. I Have WinXP Pro Sp2. Running Zone Alarm Pro v6, Eset NOD32 v2.5, Webroot Spysweeper (for coookies and alt scans), Spyware Doctor v.3.2.1.359 (resident), and Trojan Hunter v4 (also resident on boot). I am also booting and browsing with Pop-Up Stopper Pro. My Hardware? Abit NF7-S rev.2, Athlon 3200 Barton core, Best OCZ 400Mhz RAM (?) - 1Gb in dual channel, Audigy 4 Pro for sound. Latest drivers for all "to best of my knowledge" Any Helpers? :)

*More on the file tranfer lock-ups. The two other drives are Seagate drives and identicle. They're 300 Gb each... I have not reformated them since my last Windows reinstall - they were detected right off.

Could be Windows isnt seeing those drives for what they are?? Even worse, a bus problem?

Thank you in advance.

Answer:Mouse Lock-Up (not there on boot) and Windows Lock-Up Transfering Files HDD to HDD.

have you tryed running safemode? is it the same?
run a chkdsk: start > My Computer > right click the drive u want to scan > properties > tools > error checking - Check Now > put tick in both boxes > click start > click to scedule on next boot > restart

Hi, new to these forums, hope I don't break any rules or anything here.

My laptop is a
Sony Vaio - Model: SVE141R11L
Product name: SVE14135CXB
Pre-loaded with Windows 8 x64
Intel(R) Core i5-3230M CPU @ 2.60GHz
6GB RAM w/ 900GB HDD space
Purchased in Navy Exchange last year (around July 2013)

I have dropped it once or twice from at most a 3ft fall inside a padded case. I mostly use my computer for school work, some gaming, extensive video/photo editing, internet browsing. I've installed some debatable programs but have been installed long ago. Most of my programs included Microsoft Office, Adobe suite, Steam, iTunes, uTorrent, McAfee VirusScan Enterprise, Winrar, VLC, etc. But are now gone due to the refresh I had just done last week for prior problems, but still experience problems.

I recently been having issues with my computer where it just won't respond at all. Like today, I had it working for a few hours, but then went out and left my laptop on the lock screen, and came back to it being completely stuck. Completely stuck as in, no keys or clicks would unlock the screen to the login prompt. However, my cursor was fully able to move around the screen, and my caps/num lock buttons work as they display the lights enabling/disabling them. The time when it was stuck was 8:03pm, but the clock was stuck on 7:55. But on the bottom of the front of the laptop, the HDD orange light is not lit up at all, which I believe suggest that the HDD is not reading/properly reading. Oddly e... Read more

Answer:Windows 8 Lock Screen Stuck, Cursor/num/cap lock work

Sounds like one too many drops killed the computer. You may get lucky and find a local mom & pop shop that will fix it cheaper then Sony.

My recent purchase of the above All-in-One PC (running on Windows 10) included the Lenovo SK-8861 keyboard which has no lights for the CAPS LOCK and NUM LOCK keys. How do I get them to be displayed on the screen when pressed? When I went into Display Settings in Control Panel, I could not find the option to set them on or off.  so, based on the instructions on https://support.lenovo.com/gb/en/solutions/ht002122, I installed the Hotkey driver from http://support.lenovo.com/gb/en/downloads/ds031814.  When I now go into Advanced Settings under Display Settings and click on Screen Configurations, I can see the Enable on-screen display checkbox and the Appearance settiings but the expected Indicator Settings for NUM LOCK and CAPS LOCK aren't being displayed as expected. Can anybody advise what I need to do to enable these settings? Lenovo On-Screen-Display is listed under the Installed Programs in Control Panel. Many thanks.      

Answer:Displaying the CAPS LOCK and NUM LOCK indicators on the Lenovo AIO 510 Ideacentre

I do not have an answer for how to enable them via the control plane, but I can point you to a free tool called Keyboard LEDs that I have used in the past that when installed will put an indicator in the system tray, and will sound a tone  and display on screen if so configured in its settings.. Cheers,

I have a Satellite C660 which was working fine this morning. When I returned from work and powered it on, the entire keyboard is not working and therefore cannot enter my login details.
The Num lock and Caps lock are lit.

Any ideas on how to resolve this?

Answer:Satellite C660 - keyboard is not working but Num lock and Caps lock are lit

Hi

Are you able to disable the CapsLock and NumLock?
Can you access the BIOS pressing F2 while powering up the unit?

If this does not work, I would recommend checking an external USB keyboard.
If the USB keyboard would functions, then this means that the internal keyboard is faulty and needs to be replaced.
