Error Message ACER (N-SCR has stopped working

Question: Error Message ACER (N-SCR has stopped working

Ok, I think this has something to do with my screen saver. My ACER computer sits for a while and then an alarm goes off. The Message Unspecified error starts in a cascading block down the screen. After about 20 seconds another box pops up and the alarm stops. The new message reads ACER(N-SCR has stopped working. This started yesterday when I downloaded my #3 update to my windows vista 64. Any thoughts?

Preferred Solution: Error Message ACER (N-SCR has stopped working

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.)

This applies to EVERY source game, not just the orange box.

The error only applies to Vista computers that i know of so far. Here is what the message looks like:

---Microsoft Windows-----------[-][..][X]
| hl2.exe has stopped working |
| |
| A problem has caused the program |
|to stop working. Please close the |
|program. |
_______________________________|

it's prettymuch the worst thing i've ever seen in my life; the error message doesn't even denotate a SPECIFIC problem, it just states that one exists!

I was able to get my HL2 to run a few weeks ago, but now all of my Source games won't work, the same message pops up for each of them (hl2.exe has stopped...) It's getting lame. I have Windows Vista Business edition, with a Quinnipiac University Image (if that makes any difference...it shouldn't)
2ghz intel centrino duo
2 gb ram
intel core graphics (bare minimum, but enough to opperate the game)

I don't understand why it refuses to work, i'm losing my mind and i've tried about everything...it's got to be Vista. Please help?

Answer:HL2 Error message: hl2.exe has stopped working...

I responded to your other post in the other thread, but I'll post the same thing here to keep both separated.

Apparently, the Orange Box requires Shader model 3.0 support to run, and your video card does not support SM 3.0, only SM 2.0. Did this problem occur before you bought the Orange Box? Has it only occurred since you bought the Orange Box?

I use msn for my email. I have always gotten an error message "msn has stopped working" every few months.
Now I am getting it several times per day. The message comes up "msn has stopped working. msn will look for a solution to the problem." The solution never comes. msn uses IE, which I now have IE 8. I had IE9 but removed it because it caused several other problems. I have all windows updates, am current with my msn subscription.

I've seen this question asked several times on several different support sites with no solution ever being given.

I have Windows Vista Ultimate on my Toshiba computer. Microsoft won't talk to me or even let me access online chat help because the Vista was pre-installed by Toshiba.

Toshiba tech help kept me on the phone 2 hours (11 pm to 1 am EDT) and only succeeded in screwing up my computer by having me turn off things that should not have been turned off.

It took me another 2 hours the next day to straighten out the mess, and I still have the error message problem.

Hello OG1.

Do you have Service Pack 3 installed?

If it is, and still the problem exists, do a repair install. Go to Control Panel > Program and Features. Select "CorelDraw Graphics Suite X5" and click the button "Uninstall/Change". It will result in this setup window:
Select the "Repair" option and next ... and continue in the process.

I have a 3 year old Dell Inspiron 1720 laptop with Vista SP2. I run FF, Malwarebytes and Avast AV.
More and more often I receive an error message telling me WLAN has stopped working and that I should close the program. Then, suddenly, everything is OK.
I went to the Dell Support and tried to download new drivers and also had to download an application manager which I did. Then I went back to download the relevant driver. All that happened was the application manager again which then told me there were no files to download.
Can someone please tell me
1. What I might have done wrong during the download session?
2. How I can 'repair' WLAN so that it all works properly again.

I might add that I had the same trouble with the Bluetooth driver. That won't work either.

Hi,

I receive some variation on the same error message when trying to perform three different tasks. Here is a screenshot of one of the versions:

This one turns up when I attempt to uninstall certain programs, such as Delta Toolbar. Possibly connected to this is an inability to uninstall AVG Security Toolbar - it doesn't prompt an error message, but nothing happens.

I get a similar error message when trying to open Internet Explorer: 'Internet Explorer has stopped working' etc. lastly, the same happens when I try to open Skype.

I have made sure that I have the latest updates and ran antivirus scans and Windows Defender, but the problems persist. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

On Saturday my laptop was working correctly but from then I can only access my desktop - i.e. nothing from the start menu this ranges from the control panel to "my docs" - I get the looped windows explorer has stopped working error message.

I have tried dragging a shortcut from the start menu eg my music to the desktop but this doesn't work.

Another thing I have noticed is that when I turn on my laptop there is a HP update to run for "HP smart web printing", when I run this it gets halfway through the instillation then fails due to: "hp smart web printing add on for internet explorer (process id 5192)" - it tells me I need to close this but I can't see that it is running anywhere, now I don't think I had this problem until this appeared, but can't say for sure, it maybe a coincidence?

Hello,

Yesterday, my speakers were working just fine, but today I turned them on and they just don't work. They can not play any sounds including system sounds. I have Windows XP Home edition. I use the speakers that came with my computer, which is a Cybertron (don't know if you have ever heard of it)... I believe the speakers are called Realtek AC'97 Audio, because that's what comes up in the Device Manager. My computer DOES recognize them, I am sure they are wired correctly, and they are set as my default sound device in all necessary categories.
I was doing all of the troubleshooting for my sound, and nothing was helping. Eventually, when I revisited the device manager, there was a driver (I was dumb enough not to write down it's name) that had an exclamation point next to it. I right clicked it and went to properties, where I was told to uninstall the driver, restart my computer, and reinstall the driver. I uninstalled it, restarted, and then forgot the name of the driver and was unable to reinstall it; however, the speakers stopped working before the driver had an exclamation point next to it. Before I uninstalled the driver, my computer played system sounds, but no other sounds. Now it can not play any sound at all.
In the device manager, the things that come up under Sound, video and game controllers are:
- Audio Codecs (Device Working Properly)
- Legacy Audio Drivers (Device Working Properly)
- Media Control Devices (Device Working Properly)... Read more

Several Programs have given me this pictured message. Clicking on .exe icon or shortcut or created file in a particular application causes this message to appear. I can open the program by right clicking the .exe icon in Programs Folder and selecting Troubleshoot Compatibility but the most recent option it gives me in the listing is Windows XP and I've been in Win 7 for over a year! This just started happening after the Updates of 11/11/15, so I'm wondering if something became corrupted because of those. Publisher 2010, Team Viewer, Quark have all been victims of this. I basically cannot open these applications by clicking on an already-created file with the correct extension icon. I am told it "stopped working."

Hey guys,

I've been having an issue with right click copy and paste as well and drag and drop. I simply CANNOT move files around by any method whatsoever. Apparently shell extensions can cause this issue, but I downloaded a program that lists the shell extensions and allows you to disable them and the problem persists. I understand that a virus may also be at fault. I've done a thorough scan using avast, malwarebytes, and a number of online virus scans... and they did detect a few tracker cookies, and a couple of trojans which were sucessfully removed.... however the problem persists! I also tried the sfc/scannow function in comand promt, and the scan found and fixed SOME corrupt files, but was unable to fix ALL of them.
Also, there's a Tos...something.dll file that is associated with bluetooth that causes the same problem but I'm pretty certain my machine doesn't have this file as it doesnt have bluetooth.

I am trying to help an elderly neighbour who is having problems.

He bought a Kodak C315 printer in September last year and used it without a problem for 5 months but then it stopped working giving no error message.

I deleted the printer, ran the kodak clear software and then reinstalled it which appeared to be a complete success. Windows said everything installed OK including drivers and it's ready with a green tick. Windows also shows it as a correctly installed printer but if you ask for printer properties it says printer driver not installed and we can't print or scan anything.

If you click on update device driver and choose the Kodak driver directory the printer model is listed but then on attempting to install the driver windows says it encountered a problem, "No driver selected for the device information set or element"? Tried everything including the latest software with drivers from the kodak website which windows and the kodak software say install correctly and everything working OK. But it will not print or scan and windows just keeps saying drivers not installed when asking for printer properties despite both the Kodak software and Windows saying the printer was installed successfully and is ready.

He is running Windows 7 ultimate 32bit.

Answer:Kodak C315 printer stopped working no error message?

Installing a USB printer can sometimes be bit tricky second time round if you don't first uninstall it's driver, turn off the printer & disconnect it's usb cable from the PC so you are then at the correct stage to re-install just as if you were installing it for the first time as per Kodak's installation instructions. I do know many people have slipped up there when trying to re-install a USB device. They didn't start out with a "clean sheet" and with the device turned off and disconnected.

I don't know what else to suggest if you already did everything properly, other than ditching the Kodak and buying a Canon (the only printer brand that I would have in my office den).

Hello, I've been having this strange issue with my computer that recently started yesterday. Usually, I can solve these problems myself, but I can't seem to find out what exactly is wrong with my computer. I'm using Windows Vista.

Okay, so here's the problem: Whenever I surf on Firefox I get redirected to an ad page that is totally oblivious to the one I clicked on. Then, I've been constantly receiving a Microsoft Windows message saying, "TCP/IP Ping Command has stopped working" and it gives me the selection of checking online for a solution or closing it. Neither of the options do absolutely anything other than closing it. It'll then reappear in the next five minute interval. At first I thought maybe this could be a Rootkit, so I ran TDSSkiller.exe and came up with nothing. I checked my processes to make sure that there weren't any suspicious processes, coming up with nothing. I used a Malwarebytes Anti-Malware quick scan and came up with nothing. I noticed that my CPU usage was having abnormal spikes to 90-100% even when I wasn't doing anything. So, any idea of what this possibly is?

Answer:Redirecting in Firefox and "TCP/IP Ping Command has stopped working error message.

I don't think this has ever happened before (I've had the laptop for about 8 months), but I did install HP printer software a few days ago. I downloaded the latest vista driver for the printer from Hewlett Packard's website, everything installed fine, and the software updated itself automatically to the latest version, so I don't know if it's printer-related.

I have used "Data Execution Prevention" (DEP) listing my ACDC file viewer. I listedACDC because after it completes normally each time, there is an error message that says "Application has stopped working." I no longer want to see this error message.I use ACDC 7 for viewing and editing graphic files, here with this Windows 7 (64) system.

I usually select files with Windows Explorer, and they open using ACDC.

When I close the last file viewed, I get this error message that says "ACDSee 7.0 Application has stopped working"Installations of this ACDC on other Windows 7 computers do not have this issue. So I need to resolve it.

I work remotely through an F5 VPN with RSA dual authentication.  Once inside the firewall and into the intranet, I run RDC and connect to my work computer.  This has worked without fail for a year, but a couple of days ago, even though I VPN in
with no trouble and have access to other features and locations within the company's intranet, when I click Connect on the RDC dialog box, I get "An Internal Error has Occurred."  If I try "edit" on the RDC, it shows my internal userID
and asks for my pwd.  Then it gives me the same Internal Error message.  It doesn't seem to find the computer through RDC even though ping and tracert do see it. I spent hours on the phone with company tech support and they assured me the remote
box is on and they were able to remote into it.  I can also ping and tracert the remote box while VPN is active - I just can't connect.  No changes have been made in any configuration since it was set up over a year ago.
I need ideas on how to debug this as it seems to be on my home client machine.  Are there any diagnostics or tools I can use to try to find the problem?  I need this ASAP to be able to work.

I have just bought a new laptop 2 weeks ago, pre-installed with Vista Home Premium and I haven't had any problems until just yesterday with this new OS. I've searched all over the internet for solutions, but the people who have the same problem seem to have problems with malware or spyware. Some people have suggested uninstalling programs that might have been installed on the current date, but the only program I have installed is Avast anti virus. I'm pretty sure it's not a problem with spyware but just to be sure I am running an anti virus scan again (I already did before and found nothing).
Oh ya forgot about the problem: Everytime I open my Program Files folder under the C drive a message comes up saying that Windows Explorer has stopped working, then Searching for a solution and then it just restarts windows explorer. I have checked with other folders and this doesn't happen. Weird thing is though that when I changed the way I view the folder for (previously my) documents, from details to tiles (the icons), the same thing happened. And when I open program files for a brief 2 seconds, it's in tiles mode.
Sorry the message is so long, just wanted to be exact. Anyone else have/had this problem or have a solution?

P.S. is Avast even any good of an anti virus?
P.P.S. I am able to access control panel and add/remove programs (program features) and this problem doesn't occur when I login in - as it did for some people

Answer:"Windows Explorer has stopped working" error message

Yes I had the same problem unfortunately. I'm no computer tech, in fact, using this Vista programme seems to be a bit of a pain. But because of our problem and others, I'm learning fast. I nearly gave up hope and just before I threw the thing accross the room I thought "why not reinstall vista". It actually worked because the computer thought it was starting up for the first time. No probs. I cant say it will work for sure for you but I do no this, not meaning to scare you, I have only used this programme for 6 months and have had a great deal of hassle. Also from the feedback I have encountered, unless microsoft do something soon, you will need to brace yourself because there are too many faults with the programme. Good Luck. Z

IE 11 stopped working as the alert states. Supposedly it is checking on a solution, but none has come back after several days of not working. I have no idea why this has happened. I certainly don't mind deleting the program and installing a new one, but I can't see how to do this. Luckily Firefox is my main browser and I can do without IE (I think), but still would like it to function.

I am constantly receiving the "Windows Explorer has Stopped Working", when using explorer.

After looking on the Microsoft Support, I ran System File Checker (CFS) but although CFS has reported it found corrupt files it was unable to fix some of them. I am also denied access to the report log so cannot find more information on these corrupt files. I'm currently running a full virus and malware scan but I'm not overly optimistic that this will sort the issue.

Could you please tell me how to sort this issue? The errors are making explorer unusable!

Thanks.

Hi Everyone,

I am trying to map a network attached storage drive (a Freecom FSG3) I am using their software to do this. I run the software and it finds my drive showing the IP address for the drive. When I click map a network drive the thing crashes stating Knox has stopped working.

Knox is not the name of the application that I am using and I can't find any information about what this is. Any ideas?

I have tried to just map the drive manually using Windows Explorer, but it always says it can't find the drive, even when I use the IP address....

I'm thoroughly confused and quite hacked off - been trying to resolve this for hours to no avail! If anyone can shed some light on this, I'd be very grateful.

My orbicam stopped working on my Acer computer which has Aspire 5100-5023 on my notebook. After looking up the solution online, here's what I did...which did not solve the problem:

Alt/F10
Hit Restore
selected reinstall applications/drivers
once it was finished, it brought me to a screen where I selected Windows vista. Here's where I think I screwed up. I had three choices to install a driver: Bison Camera Driver, Acer Orbicam Utility Bar (Bison), and Suyin Camera Driver. I've installed the first two at least 3X, and the suyin driver 1x. Nothing is working. Obviously I did not do it correctly.

Weirdly, the lower case d works. None of the special characters above the malfunctioning numbers work. There wasn't any spill that I know of, but it's certainly possible water got on it somehow. Has anyone had this problem? Does it sound mechanical, IE water or some other kind of damage, or does it sound potentially like some kind of virus?

Weirdly, the lower case d works. None of the special characters above the malfunctioning numbers work. There wasn't any spill that I know of, but it's certainly possible water got on it somehow. Has anyone had this problem? Does it sound mechanical, IE water or some other kind of damage, or does it sound potentially like some kind of virus? And in the more likely scenario that it IS a water or dirt issue, does anyone know what kind of solution might be possible? Can the keys be easily removed and cleaned? I did already try the compressed air keyboard thing. Any help or ideas are hugely appreciated! 

Answer:Random keys on my Acer S7 stopped working

I should also add- when I start up the computer, the password box is full of the black dots as if a key is stuck.Any advice would be hugely appreciated!Thanks guys!

I just recently encountered a problem with my Acer Aspire E3-112 notebook keyboard that I had been able to fix and would like to share the solution with anyone who may encounter the same problem. I had used a USB flash drive to copy some files without any issues. Shortly afterwards, I noticed that the 8 key on the keyboard had stopped responding, but all other keys worked as normal. I had pressed Fn-F11 (NumLk) and the 8 key started working again. Pressing Fn-F11 again disabled the NumLk mode, and the 8 key also stopped working again. I tried rebooting the notebook, shutting down and powering back up, reinstalling keyboard driver, etc, but nothing worked. To rule out Windows OS related settings, I rebooted into BIOS, and noticed that the 8 key still didn't work when I tried to change the time, but the other number keys worked fine. The solution that finally solved the problem was to shut down the notebook, and then using a paper clip, push it into the Batery reset pinhole on the bottom of the notebook for four seconds. Upon normal powerup, the 8 key started working again. If your notebook has a removable battery, then removing and reinstalling the battery might have the same effect.

Thanks for sharing. I've seen the battery reset fix a number of issues, but nothing as odd as the 8 key from working.

It's the oddest thing.  The mute button is not on and the volume controls work but there is no volume.  Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated  : )

I have read that HP also has this problem, but I have only found mixed results of success. it happened sometime after March 22nd 2015. I believe an update removed the "HID-compliant touch screen" device from device manager, it has just disappeared entirely, i have tried working with usb generic device's drivers, its not listed in there, i have tried enabling the service for HID compliant device, no luck. I have tried going to acer's website for the driver for that model, it is not there. its like they stopped supporting it. help guys, i'm stuck. i need either that driver, a third-party touchscreen software, or something short of restoring it to earlier state.

Answer:Acer touchscreen has stopped working after update

Open Device Manager and uninstall current monitor driver then reconnect your monitor to install Microsoft monitor generic driver.

Hi all,

I'm new to this forum and have a request for help,

I have an Acer Aspire Timeline Ultra M3-581TG with the following spec:

Acer Aspire Timeline Ultra M3-581TG NX.RYKEK.010

Except i'm running windows 7 and have just the 500GB HD on its own.

I only have had it since christmas and have been VERY happy with its performance so far...

BUT lastnight I switched it on and the keyboard and touchpad is completely unresponsive, when I went into control panel-hardware-keyboard there was a red "x" symbol beside it and when I ran a diagnostic on it it stated the driver wasn't installed properly and searched itself for a fix, It seemed to find something and tried installing it but then reported it wasn't installed properly.

I restored the laptop to two different previous restore points with no effect and so have since undid all restores (using the onscreen keyboard and a mouse).

I have tried pressing F2/F6/F8 on startup but with no effect....

I have seen a fix that has seemed to work for people where they disconnect the power lead and battery, press and hold the power button for 30-45 secs, connect just the battery and reboot, however my battery is internal and can't be clipped out like most laptops...

I'm running out of ideas and most driver update sites seem to be a trick to get you to install their software for free then charge you for anything else so any advice would be GREATLY appreciated, I don't want to have to get an external HDD, back everythin... Read more

Answer:Acer Ultrabook Keyboard stopped working!!

Try the following drivers.
Oddly enough, I could not find official keyboard drivers for your model, only touchpad drivers.
I'm assuming that your keyboard uses a windows included driver.

These are for Windows 7 64bit.

I have tried everything that Microsoft site says to try.  I even uninstalled completely and did fresh install.  Tried going to a different version.Nothing has fixed it.  I have to use Internet Explorer for work as the sites that I must use require it.Not sure what else to do.  Very frustrating and time consuming.Windows 7 64 bit

Answer:IE 11-keep getting message that is has stopped working and must close

Exactly how did you uninstall IE?  I wonder how you did that since IE comes with Windows and normally is not uninstalled by a user.  Do you mean that you rolled back IE to an earlier version? Do you have any other browsers installed?  Does this error occur when viewing certain websites, when multiple tabs are opened, when viewing Flash content, etc? Do you have any malware/spyware protection apps installed?  Have you tried deleting your browsing history?

Answer:Message:kxslejkgsiob has stopped working

Welcome
To me it sounds like it might be a virus. Can you boot in safe mode, to make an antivirus scan?
A malware scan would be helpful, too, but difficult if not already downloaded.

Here is a friend's Internet problem when using windows XP. She wrote:While reading your email, the screen suddenly came up with this message: "Internet has stopped working!" -- I have to sign in again, and a different screen came up and I have to type hotmail again, then the normal screen came up. And, after a few lines, she adds:While typing this, another screen came up, I have to come out and in a few times before I can continue, so I sign off now.

Answer:Internet has stopped working - message

Maybe get her to download the free version of malwarebytes update it and then run it to see if it finds any problems.click hereAnd maybe a good idea to change her password if using Hotmail in case her Hotmail account has been hacked.

I have been having freezing problems and the laptop sometimes turns itself off it has only just been repaired so everything was re installed but mcafee keeps saying its stopped working and this has been every day for two months am i protected or not

Answer:mcafee message it has stopped working

You are not protected unless McAfee runs without error messages. Try re-installing it or use some other security software. Comodo Internet Security is less well known but works well and there's a free version which still includes firewall + antivirus.What's more, the "Pro" version is only $20 and you can use it on up to 3 computers at the same time.Comodo website: http://www.comodo.com/Another important point is that Comodo is nowhere near as heavy on system resources as McAfee, so you'll have more RAM free for Windows & apps to use.

Hello friends.This is the first time this has ever happened so, I'm quite stomped. Today, my Launch Manger stopped working. In the past, an uninstall and reinstall of the product fixed the issue when it rarely occurred (only times in the past 8 years) Today, however, I've ran the full gambit of assault on uninstalling and registry clearing. I used Revo Unistaller Pro to uninstall Launch Manager and used CCleaner to clear old registry strings and and still nothing! Each time I attempt to reinstall the program, it still doesn't work.The OSDRC and OSDRC2 folders that normally house these image files:are now completely empty:I've tried simply copying and pasting the files over to no avail. There's something in the coding that's not calling the proper files to be used and I have not a clue on where the hiccup is. The [Fn] function key combos still work. The process just isn't using the visual image files as indicators.Launch Manager is listed as a start-up item in CCleaner but, it does not point to a file that's supposed to be starting..Task Manager does not list Launch Manager as a start-up item at all.I checked to make certain Normal Startup was selected in msconfig and it was and that didn't help. Now I am completely lost.Acer Aspire E1-571-6442Windows 8.1 x64-bit
