Archives For technical problems

Wow. I’m really computer dependent. And not only that, it’s MY computer the one I need. I was using my mom’s desktop these past two days, but it wasn’t the same. Now, my dad brought the laptop my aunt isn’t using, but it doesn’t feel right either…

I need to find new software for Vista otherwise I won’t be able to work on anything, including the next issue of YAM… and my YAM mockups. I need my fonts, and I need my non-backed up files… which are only a couple [mostly some images that I didn’t back up, and a few video files], but the one thing I do need to get is my list of 20 actors, which if you have noticed… I’ve stopped updating because I don’t know who’s next! LOL

My video card is out…

April 27, 2010 — 6 Comments

has been not working for a while now, but now it won’t start at all. system starts up fine, but it won’t recognize the monitor. SUCKS.

Won’t be posting until it gets back up and/or I get a new card.

anyone know what video card I could use to replace the Nvidia Geforce 5600? I’m pretty sure it’s that model, I’m too pissed to look for the box…

AVG 8 Free, Win XP issues?

November 5, 2008 — 2 Comments

I have been googling about it, but haven’t found much. Will blog more later, coz I’m off to see Volver. Has anyone found issues with the AVG update of last monday or yesterday? Been having issues… just managed to uninstall AVG, and will write more here when I get my computer back online…

I am having a similar problem to the one I had when I did the last Silverlight Windows update.

Ok… back to my computer. According to the comments below,  AVG now works fine.

Anyway, there’s also the description of the problem… maybe someone can explain why it could happen, or how to fix.

The problem I had was with the Win XP interface. Whenever I tried clicking on the Start Menu, it would open for a blink and disappear. No right-click menu could be open… so basically the taskbar was not usable. On the desktop, any icon clicked to try to open a program would open the Property Window instead.

If by chance I managed to open Firefox to try and google, I couldn’t type anything at all. And if by chance I would type any letter (eg. “S”) that would open a menu item(eg. “History”), the menu would drop down. If I managed to open a website and try to click on a link, it would work as a right-click-save-link-as.

The only thing I could do was either restart or turn off the computer.

The first time this happened was on a Windows XP update of Silverlight, which was undone by a system restore. The second time is this with AVG. Does anyone know why? O_o

WordPress 2.6!

July 15, 2008 — 4 Comments

Logged in a few minutes ago to find there’s a new WP version already. I have an issue, though~ This comes up whenever I click on the “Add Image” in the “Add media” bar.

Warning: call_user_func_array() []: First argument is expected to be a valid callback, ‘media_admin_css’ was given in /****/****/public_html/****/wp-includes/plugin.php on line 311

ALSO, If you click on this post WP shows me a 404 ERROR. What’s happening!! Permalinks that include index.php are not working, so Categories are not working, Pages are not working, Archives is not working. Will stop blogging, until issue is fix.

De-activated Flexible Upload, and the WARNING Message in the Add Image went away. Still got the 404 Error with the permalinks, though~ Le sigh.

Successfully downgraded to WordPress 2.5.1

***EDIT*** 3.36am
Successfully edited permalinks without index.php, will try WP 2.6 later. Off to bed.

****EDIT**** 3.03pm
Ok, that worked. AM now using WP 2.6, but as u can see all links don’t have the index.php thing. LOL’ Good WP move so people have to make the switch to ‘pretty’ permalinks. Hee. Ok, not so funny. It was pretty annoying… this is what you need to do to change it…

Get your .htaccess file, and add this:

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule . /index.php [L]

Then go to your WP admin, go to Settings, Permalinks and do your thing.

After that, WP 2.6 is all dandy. Otherwise, go to the WP Forums coz they’ve got another option.

Just an hour ago, I accepted the newest Windows XP system updates… I normally check what to update. I even checked once if I could get rid off Internet Explorer, but no luck there. Anyway, I accepted the update, and it downloaded fine, and it got installed~~

I restarted the system, and since I thought everything was fine. A minute later, I opened my torrents to continue download, and I went to watch the rest of the episodes of Wonderfalls on DVD. I finished watching one of the episodes, when I checked up on the download speeds only to find out they were all RED. Nothing was downloading, so I thought that maybe it was something with the torrent client, so I  tried login on my Messenger account, but it didn’t work either. SO, I opened any site on Firefox, which didn’t work either!

I couldn’t think of anything else that would make my internet stop working right after the restart, so I did a system restore to yesterday’s date. And now it works again. So I’ve decided to cancel the updates that the system is prompting once again…

Did anyone else have the problem? O_o
