technical help needed with violence lock on a game

Question: technical help needed with violence lock on a game

Hope this is allowed here...Soldier of Forune Special Edition...haven't played it for a while, tried today and it says the violence lock has been activated so I can't play the full game with gore. I am the only adult in the house and have never "locked" the violence button. Tried uninstall via add/remove, searched for any files left, cleaned the registry with regseeker but on reinstallation it says "game was previously installed with violence lock, you need a password". I am very adult (44!) if not mature and have tried all my usual passwords, despite being sure I have never applied the violence lock. Any ideas??

Hey All, There's this online game I recently installed onto my PC called Maple Story. It's a great game but everytime I run it I'm very laggy in the game and sometimes freeze up when I'm doing attacks or teleporting. Then I have to shut down the computer.I know it's not the game's fault, I've checked and it's working fine, and it's not only the game that's getting laggy, I sometimes have to shut down when I'm on the internet, so I tried checking the computer. I called my internet connections provider (comcast) and they said my connection is running fine.I cleaned out its registry, I ran a "boot check", and it still continues to run slow and freeze up.Does anyone have any tips or hints, or should I buy a new PC?----Sorry about that, I'm new here and didn't know I had to provide more than just the operating system heheh...OPERATING SYSTEM: Windows XP Home Edition (been with me for 2 years)SPACE USED: 14.4GBSPACE FREE: 19.4GBCAPACITY: 33.8GBINTEL(R) 4 CPU 2.80 GHz, 2.79GHz, 248MB of RAM ERROR MESSAGES: There are none, I just freeze up, the screen goes either black or white.MANUFACTURER: DellOVERALL PROBLEM: Gameplay for Online Game MAPLE STORY (http://www.mapleglobal.com)ISSUE HAS BEEN OCCURING FOR QUITE A WHILE BUT BECAME VERY NOTICEABLE WHEN MAPLE STORY WAS INSTALLED.

Hi Everyone,

I only recently subscribed to this forum, hoping I can get some help here with some problems I have. They are Microsoft related and I cannot find any solutions on their website.

The first problem I have is the following:

Whenever I open Internet Explorer version 7, the programme is not responding for a few moments and also slows down other programmes that I work in at the same time. I never had this problem with version 6 and when I uninstall version 7 the previous version works fine. Once version is reinstalled the problem occurs again. I have already reset and deleted all cookies, temp. internet files and history as recommended by Microsoft but no luck.

Could you help please? My operating system is Windows XP. Someone said that I might have a missing or corrupt file within my Windows O/S but how do I find out if that is the case?

Another issue is that my PC cannot install a recent update for outlook 2003 junk email filter (KB932330). It just cannot install it but never tells the reason why and it keeps on trying. I am completely lost with this.

I would very much appreciate any help.

Many thanks in advance,

Tim

I can at least answer this part : prepare your XP CD (if a file is corrupt, you'll need it), then go to start => run, and type "sfc /scannow". This will launch the system files scanner.

Have you made a thorough search for malwares ? Check the link in my sig. If you go through the 5 steps, don't forget to post your HJT log in the HJT section, and not here.

Please help me - I'm at my wits' end. I am trying to reinstall windows xp pro using the 6 floppy disks I have created. I get to the repair screen and then hit a blank cos I have no idea what the command should be to get it to work. I have spent the last 3 hours working thru article after article and just seem to be going round in circles! Anybody who can talk me thru it in non-technical jargon would earn my undying appreciation!!!

Answer:Non-technical jargon needed!

This should be pretty straight forward.

When you see the "Welcome To Setup" screen, you will see the options below (This is where you stopped in your post)
This portion of the Setup program prepares Microsoft
Windows XP to run on your computer:

To setup Windows XP now, press ENTER.

To repair a Windows XP installation using Recovery Console, press R.

To quit Setup without installing Windows XP, press F3.

Press Enter to start the Windows Setup. do not choose "To repair a Windows XP installation using the Recovery Console, press R", (you Do Not want to load Recovery Console). I repeat, do not choose "To repair a Windows XP installation using the Recovery Console, press R".
Accept the License Agreement and Windows will search for existing Windows installations.
Select the XP installation you want to repair from the list and press R to start the repair. If Repair is not one of the options, read this Warning#2!
Setup will copy the necessary files to the hard drive and reboot. Do not press any key to boot from CD when the message appears. Setup will continue as if it were doing a clean install, but your applications and settings will remain intact.

This should help.

Hello all,
 
I've recently got my SL300 LCD defectively. It is just out of warranty (this is shame because lenovo thinkpad is known as for the best quality compared with other computer sellers). Could you please tell me the technical information about the LCD pannel so that I can buy it to replace my defective one? Thank you!
 
p/s: my friend got his HP laptop fixxed for free even though his laptop is out of warranty for more than 2 years. And you know that laptop is useless if laptop LCD is defective. So sad I've bought this SL300 a year and several months ago. And I think there was some technical issues that made SL300 laptop discontinued after a month I've bought it. Please change the quality of your product Lenovo.

Answer:SL300 technical information needed please help

Hi Tom I have discovered a similar problem in my Lenovo SL300 very recently. A red dotted vertical line appeared towards the right side of the screen. This is very unfortunate since I also had the idea this laptop would be way better than this. Now I am struggling to do some troubleshooting myself and to see which are the minimum parts I need to replace so that price doesn't go that high. I have less than two years with this laptop and i'm a very careful user. Aside from factory problems there is no other reason why my LCD would fail in such a short period of time. This is unfortunate. Anyways, should you hear suggestions from anyone please let me know and I'll promise I'll do the same. Allan

My pc recently stopped operating (well, I say recently, it's been about 6 weeks now). At first it started freezing, and then powering down (whilst nothing graphically intensive was going on). The amounts of time it lasted before shutting down became smaller and smaller, until eventually when powering up, the monitor just remains in standby. The cpu fan and system fans start spinnning, and there's a bit of hard drive activity, but then nothing.So I've been trying to remedy this by trying (buying) different components. So far I have tried a different GPU, a different CPU, a different PSU, and finally a different mobo. I've also tried replacing the CMOS battery, swapping the memory around, trying different hard drives, taking the whole thing apart, cleaning, putting back together again etc, etc - all of which has proved very costly.I've also tried my monitor (17" Taxan CRT) on a different pc and it works fine.So I'm pretty much at the end of my tether, and this process has been pretty expensive.Here's my original system: P4 2.8ghz cpu, 1gb ddr3200 ram, Leadtek GeForce 4 Ti4000 GPU, Gigabyte GA-8I875 (socket 478) mobo, 350w PSUHere's components I have since tried (to no avail): P4 3.4ghz cpu, a cheapy agp GPU, 550w PSU, Gigabyte GA-8IPE1000 Pro-G 865 PE (socket 478)So now I'm pretty baffled - I guess the only thing I haven't tried replacing yet is the memory - but i'm reluctant to shell out more dosh if this is unlikely to be the culprit.So, now I'm thinking shall I cut my losses...

I have an HP Scanjet 2100C.I was going to change it when I swapped from 98se to XP as no drivers were available,but I found a way to get it running under XP.Then HP released a driver for XP+HP Scanjet,and although it was awkward I finally managed to get it to change over from the M$ driver to HP driver.Then the SP-1 Update arrived and after its installation I found I could no longer get the scanner to use the HP install(each time I try to run the software,I get "Device could not be found" I have been at this now for three days,and am presently upto HP Scanjet#7 in Device Manager.I tried booting into safemode(as in 98se,it lists ALL devices that have been on your system,so allowing their deletion)to remove previous Scanjets,and none could be found.The reason I wish to switch over from the M$ driver,is it only gives 600x600dpi,and I have to disable it in device manager(or unplug it)to switch it off.If I really must,I WILL go out and buy a new scanner,but feel really cheated as there is nothing wrong with the HP.(although the company's "support team" should stop being paid as they seem to do little but "make up the numbers")

Answer:HP Scanner + XP Driver = Violence!

Try a win 2000 driver, they sometimes work.

so i made an error plugging in a USB 3.0 cable into my motherboard. i bent one of the pins completely over which folded in half then bent flat against the bottom of the plug. i tried to gently pry it up in an attempt to straighten it out, which i figured was a long shot, but i had to try. it broke off flush with the surface of the board. i have not taken the board out of the machine yet. because if its not possible to repair it, there is no point. i need to know a few things. 1) can a broken pin be removed and a new one soldered in? or when i heat the solder are several of them going to come loose and out of alignment, or worse? can i buy new pins? they look like they are square rather than just round wire. or would i have to find a doner board? i know that i can buy an expansion card that will provide me with a new port. but i do not mind a challenge, as long as the odds are better than 70% failure rate. this is not about saving 20-30 bucks for a new card. its about making the board right. i have fixed things all of my life. and i am pretty good at it. but i know when to ask for help, and this si one of those times.

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.

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:

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.

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. My computer has a 960 GTX, i74720GQ @ 2.6GHz, and 500 GB SSD (samsung evo--upgraded from 1TB HD) and I'm having issues with my FPS in-game. It locks at 30 or FPS across all games. I do have two GPU's (integrated and 960 GTX) and have always used the GTX as the primary source, uncapped in-game graphics, limited background interference (services, programs, etc.) and possibly other things I can't think of but cannot release the in-game FPS cap. 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.

is there any other info i need to provide ? what about the PSU ? [and how would i find this info?]

i only have 1 fan and it's used to cool the CPU, the video card does not have a fan, it only has a heat sink that gets really really hot. . .i touched it and could not keep my finger there for more than 2 seconds literally. I tried opening the case with a fan blowing into it. this seems to help a bit but my computer ends up freezing anyways.

i have already updated the drivers for my video card. i haven't tried to overclock anything.

Any suggestions to what i should buy ? i got alot of christmas money =) Thanks so much

before i could play HL2, but now i cant even play Counter-Strike without this problem occuring. i used to run CS at 85 fps before but now i'm forced to run it at 60 fps because of the flickering/freezing. It still freezes at 60 fps sometimes. I tried to play Lineage II. . .same result.

i suspect that this may be overheating or my outdated hardware, but i'm not sure what to upgrade

according to EVEREST Home Edition:
OS: Win2000 Pro
CPU: Intel Pentium 4, 2.4 GHz
VGA: GeForce FX 5200 [128 MB, AGP 8x]
Memory: 512 MB [two 256MB DDR SDRAM]

Temperatures
Motherboard: 38 C (100 F)
CPU: 48 C (118 F) it goes as high as 122F in games
Aux: 31 C (88 F)

is there any other info i need to provide ? what about the PSU ? [and how would i find this info?]

i only have 1 fan and it's used to cool the CPU, the video card does not have a fan, it only has a heat sink that gets really really hot. . .i touched it and could not keep my finger there for more than 2 seconds literally. I tried opening the case with a fan blowing into it. this seems to help a bit but my computer ends up freezing anyways.

i have already updated the drivers for my video card. i haven't tried to overclock anything.

Any suggestions to what i should buy ? i got alot of christmas money =) Thanks so much
 

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!

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.
System details.

Cyrix 6x86MX P200 (166Mhz)

I'm 'mildly' comfortable with doing '' settings' but please reply as if you're talking to a 5yr-old !! then i'll understand you LOL....I have to make a regional move....computer will not travel with me, but with commercial movers. If it would get lost i want no accessibility to it.
Win 8....i know if i click on ''start' (in charms area, right side of screen) find the picture upper right screen & click it, the option to 'lock' is an option . When i clicked on it a popup appeared asking if i want to 'continue' (i didn't) because i didn't want it to lock immediately (if that's what would happen) because i wouldn't know how to get out of the 'lock' !!!
2. I did find 'power options' in control-panel with a choice (that is recommended but never used) to require a password to awake computer from 'sleep-mode' . What is the difference between the two choices (above #1 or P.O. ''sleep-mode''area choice?
I am the 'administrator/owner' - no one else uses the computer but i don't think i have a password because i had store set-up computer for me when i bought it....it came ready to use with no password needed.
Thanks so very much in advance for any in put ! Edythe

I notice that the tablet/phone lock screen is still appearing for Desktop/Laptop installs and wonder why.

Previously when I enable turning off the lock screen in gpedit.msc it turns off the lock screen timeout too. But on the latest build I still get a much sooner timeout to my MS password than what I have set in Power Options.

How do I turn off the supposed Lock Screen timeout when I don't have a lock screen? This is annoying, and surely will annoy MS' billion+ desktop customers who don't need a phone or tablet lockscreen or timeout on their desktop/laptop which already has familar timeouts to password in Power Options.

Answer:Lock screen and timeout not needed for desktop!

Hello,
I have just 2 days ago built a second box of old parts and decided to give W8 a try. It runs remarkably faster IMHO than the Ubuntu 64 bit, I was using previously. Having no second drive I can not backup the system and have had to reload numerous times for undetermined reasons and general mess-ups. On my main box in msconfig > Boot Tab > Advanced tools there is a box (actually many), I don't understand. It is the PCI lock checkbox, which is checked on my W7 machine. It is not in this W8 machine and I would like to know if I should check it and possibly a elementary explanation of it's function. I am trying to learn... Thanks for any assistance!
Glenn

Answer:Boot tab > Advanced options - PCI Lock - Help sorely needed!

Like all other options in msconfig, this too should be unchecked. Its purpose is to prevent Windows from dynamically allocating resources (I/O ranges, IRQs, etc) to devices connected to the PCI bus (note that devices don't actually need to be plugged into the PCI slots, many are devices that are present as part of the built-in hardware on the motherboard). In other words, if this option is checked then resources that are set by the BIOS are maintained. Note that devices, such as serial/parallel ports, may be enabled or disabled in the BIOS. Such devices, if disabled, have no resources allocated to them regardless of the PCI lock checkbox.

Bought the Folder Lock program and have a problem when uninstalling it.

When we use Folder Lock's Uninstall Option we get a message on reboot that some of the Windows XP Service Pack 2 files were removed. It then asks for the Windows XP CD to reinstall some of the operating files the Folder Lock uninstall program removed. We are using a Panasonic Toughbook CF-29 laptop, which doesn't have a CD player in it. We dont have the original Windows XP CD either. Same thing happens when trying to remove Folder Lock using Windows Add & Remove Programs Option in Control Panel.

After we deleted the Folder Lock Program and choosing the option not to insert the Windows CD after rebooting - Windows became very unstable giving us a lot of error messages.

We tried using our Desktop XP CD on an external USB Hard-Drive but the program said it wasnt the original install disc. Dont have the original Disc.

Cant understand why the Folder Lock uninstall option would delete important Windows operating files or why its support team wont answer our question or reply to our emails.

Does anyone know how to manually uninstall the Folder Lock Program so we don't loose the needed Windows XP files or how to get the deleted Windows files reloaded onto the laptop?

Thank you,

Skid
 

Answer:Folder Lock uninstall.exe removes needed Windows XP operating files…

We may have solved the problem. Only time will tell.

For some odd reason the files associated with the Folder Lock Program can now be removed - manually - which we could not do before. We put them in a separate folder - different directory - and will see how the laptop reacts over the next week. There are still files in the Registry for Folder Lock but we will leave them there until we see how the system reacts.

Anyone thinking about trying the Folder Lock Program should do so with caution. It has been our experience that the program has many problems and there is no support for the product from its creator. We have read many post with others having odd and unique problems after using the Folder Lock Program.

Hope this helps some one.

Answer:Need help...Folder Lock uninstall.exe removes needed Windows XP operating files.

I would start with a check disk as a system file check might require the Operating System CD. If your version of Windows isn't an upgrade the files required should be on the hard drive in Windows.

Manual steps to run Chkdsk from My Computer or Windows Explorer

1.Double-click My Computer, and then right-click the hard disk that you want to check.
2.Click Properties, and then click Tools.
3.Under Error-checking, click Check Now. A dialog box that shows the Check disk options is displayed,
4.Use one of the following procedures:
?To run Chkdsk in read-only mode, click Start.
?To repair errors without scanning the volume for bad sectors, select the Automatically fix file system errors check box, and then click Start.
?To repair errors, locate bad sectors, and recover readable information, select the Scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors check box, and then click Start.
Note If one or more of the files on the hard disk are open, you will receive the following message: The disk check could not be performed because the disk check utility needs exclusive access to some Windows files on the disk. These files can be accessed by restarting Windows. Do you want to schedule the disk check to occur the next time you restart the computer?
Click Yes to schedule the disk check, and then restart your computer to start the disk check.

When the program starts "dumping" the cd onto the computer, so to speak, I just get error block after error block and it would take an hour or more to finish (when on the help section it walks you through and it only takes 2 minutes for a whole game disc).

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.

Hello

I seem to have a problem recording games using programs like fraps, this might apply to other kinds of recording but ive only found this problem so far.

I 1st tried fraps (granted it was the free version) i recorded a video file, i tried to play it back with windows media player but it stated the codec wasnt recognised. I gave up with fraps and tried another software for game recording. I found the same problem. However i installed both onto my laptop (my other PC) and it worked fine. i also realised that the problem was not that my desktop could not recognise the file, because when i transfered the video files that were created on the laptop to the desktop, they played fine, likewise the files created on the desktop would not work on the laptop. so the problem must be with the actual recording of the files?

I went to properties>summary of the video files i created using the software on the destop and noticed there is no frame rate or data rate. if thats helpful?

Also i ran 'dxdiag' there didnt seem to be any errors.

Im not at my own computer right now (internet is currently cancelled) so i can only give basic specs and may even be incorrect.

desktop:

I hope someone can help me troubleshoot this as it is driving me crazy! I have a dedicated PC (Win7 x64) for Microsoft Flight Simulator, but I can't fly at all at the moment because of this issue, unless I use the keyboard to input everything (not really an option!).

I load up the sim (FS2004) and start doing the normal 'game' preparations, but usually within ten minutes - it seems to be getting worse as time goes on - both my Saitek X52 joystick (USB) and my Belkin Nostromo N52 (USB) stop working, at the same moment moreover. I assumed it was a USB issue, though my keyboard and mouse still work just fine. Also, when I go into the Saitek Control Panel (where you test all the buttons and functions are working) everything responds as normal, it's just in Flight Simulator, my profile (that is, with what keyboard functions I have programmed all the buttons etc.) is unloaded and a default (I assume) takes over - the button I use to remove aircraft brakes now operates flaps instead; the 'hat' which changes views from exterior to interior now does nothing at all, and so on.The keyboard shortcuts I have programmed into the X52 and N52 still work if I input them via the keyboard instead.

In addition, the Saitek icon in the task bar changes to a blue circle and I cannot access any of the functions which are normally available there - clicking the blue circle does nothing. If I terminate the Saitek profiler process in Task Manager and unplug then plug the X52 back i... Read more

I disabled xHCI in the BIOS, as a test. After a few minutes with Flight Simulator, I got a BSOD "System Service Exception" 0x0000003B. (Microsoft say this is to do with IEEE 1394 (firewire? I don't have firewire on this PC). Goes from bad to worse!

As per the above thread, does anyone know how I can use a different USB3 controller - to try out ASMedia instead of the Intel? I have no idea how to check which USB ports use which controllers (Asus H971 Plus M/B).

i'm looking for a free downloadable game demo with system requirements similar to black ops, as i'm looking for a used gaming desktop and want to test the video card, cpu speed, etc. by downloading a game demo with system requirements similar to black ops; crysis (2) ? thanks call of duty (modern warfare 1) does have a demo, it's a bit old, though; thanks again !!
 

Answer:GAME DEMO NEEDED : black ops comparable

Not seeing the PC demo yet.
They are still using metro 2033 for video card tests.
Might give that demo a try to see how far you can push your card.
http://www.fileplanet.com/215567/210000/fileinfo/Metro-2033-Demo
Crysis 2 doesn't allow access to video settings.
It does it all automatically.
Still looks good though.

Sometimes electrical components needs to have all power sources removed and reintroduced to work properly.  Try performing a hard reset first, if it doesn't work then try updating your BIOS.  If neither works...It's pretty much dead and not worth fixing.  To Perform A Hard Reset Shut down the computer by going to the Start menu and selecting shut down. (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.

For some time now, i have been experiencing that my Num Lock, Caps Lock and Scroll Lock all lights up (not blinking) all at the same time, I tried to google it but i can not find any solutions or explanations for it.

Does anyone know if it is bad? and what is causing this?

I am having a wired keyboard with nothing fancy just a standard issue Logitech keyboard.

Answer:Num Lock, Caps Lock and Scroll Lock all lights up (not blinking)

Can you toggle those functions off, one at a time? Sometimes restarting the computer will use the last state it was in, I'd fully shut down and pull the power cord from the computer and the keyboard cable then put them back and try again.

Hi,

how to disable Caps lock, num lock, scroll lock screen messages?



I have desktop pc with two keyboards usb and bluetooth. Also TOSHIBA Bluetooth Stack software, but in device manager: keyboard > hid keyboard device both using microsoft drivers. And I dont have any software installed for keyboards. Also bluetooth has separate system tray indications (it is also disabled) so its not that.

Acualy I dont have anywhere in registry KeyIndication. So any ideas how to disable it? Thanks

Answer:Caps lock, num lock, scroll lock screen messages

Hi,

You'll find that the messages are controlled by a piece of software that came pre-installed on your machine when you bought it. Try looking for a Hotkey managing app to see if the notifications can be disabled.

Answer:Can I install Windows Technical Preview on my PC which is already running technical preview?

I'm not sure what you are asking. I think it's either (a) if it's possible to dual boot W10 TP, or (b) if you can reinstall WP10 TP over an existing installation, likely with the intent to achieve a clean/fresh install (not repair). The answer to both is "yes", although the procedure is different.

Hi,
I have installed a game called "Real War" into my compaq @ 476 mhz and 20GB HD... The full install is 650MB and the game still plays slow sometimes and the actions of the mouse are delayed a good part of the time... I originally only did a minimal install with the comp reading from the CD ROM and that was slow so I figured it would be alot better doing a full 650MB install, but the actions arent much better... Any advice on what to do to make the game play smoother and have faster mouse actions per se???

I am looking for some help with my Game Elements GGE909 Recoil Game Controller. I can get it to work and everything and have learned to not mess with the recoil while using it, however, it will randomly act up while I am in the middle of the game. It will act as though it was disconnected when it wasn't and Windows will tell me that it doesn't recognize it. To get it to work again, I have to restart the computer (typically twice) and then reinstall the software from the CD-ROM that was provided with the controller (which involves me unplugging the controller and plugging it back in when prompted and unplugging it when prompted). It is as troublesome as it sounds. When I reinstall it, I get a message that says something about the controller's software not being approved to work with Windows XP and to contact the vender in order to get software that is approved. What should I do and how should I do it?

Hey out there,

I came upon this site via Google and saw a "thread" from Brenda about the Legos Star Wars game and a graphic card that supports Pixel Shaders v1.1. I read some of the responses which prompted me to visit the Toshiba webpage. I downloaded the detailed specifications for my laptop but I still can't figure out if I have PCI card or AGP card port. I tried to put the information into the designated slots for the registration profile but there is not enough room. I am a Mom of a 10 yr old who was given this game for his birthday in June. I have just finally come upon this website mentioning the same problem. Our laptop is not very old, maybe 2 years. Any help in directing me where to look on these specs for the card info. I need would be greatly appreciated. I see it says expandability "1 PC Card slot support 1 Type II PC card". Is that what I'm looking for? Hey, I email and can find things I need on the web but games are beyond me. I'm just trying to see if I can get this Lego game working without having to buy a new computer.

Thanks for your time and comments.

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 assume that Lenovo has some kind of guide that tells them what the lights mean. The computer was about six months out of warrenty when it failed. I called Lenovo to attempt to extend the warranty but they won't once it is out of warranty. Looking for some idea of what failed, whether it is worth getting one of Lenovo's listed companies that repair laptops to look at it and fix the problem.

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.

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.

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.

Hello guys,

It only does this on the first view of a image file after reboot. Once it does this, it doesn't do it until I reboot.

Second one is: I use a PIN as my login password. The number lock on the log in screen doesn't work. I almost always have to press NUM Lock button in order to use the number key pad. I checked the BIOS setting and Num Lock is on.

I will be appreciate any help.

You've posted 2 different problems that should have been separate posts. I don't have a solution to the first but the second is probably because the keyboard driver has not yet loaded before getting logged in. 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.

How do I remove the Caps and Num Lock indictor for a Lenovo G50, that is running Windows 10?

Answer:Remove Caps lock/Num lock indicator? (Windows 10)

Hi Thisismyname01 ,
 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums. 
 
On a similar G50 , this was resolved by uninstalling Energy Management .
 
Another steps that was advised :
 
1. Opening Control Panel >Program and Features>Uninstall a Program and look for Caps OSD or Lenovo OSD 
 
2. On the display properties of the graphic card , you may also configure to "Show indicator for a few seconds" . 
 
3. Disable hotkeys from the BIOS ( but this may change all other usable hotkeys ) . Lets's reserve it a last option. 
 
Update us what works for you.
