The next page gives you the option to back any files before restoring the computer. If you wish not to back up your files, click where it says“Recover without backing up your files.”

After making your selected choice, then click NEXT. A warning will prompt you to make sure to disconnect any devices except for the power and the mouse. Click OK.

No video with supported format and MME type found


After reinstalling the Windows Vista operating system, I had gone to a christian Web site http://www.hischannel.com and when I had tried to watch one of the Sermons from their archive this came up below

No video with supported format and MME type found

No video with supported format and MME type found

I began by trying different things, first updating to Service Pack one , installing the Adobe Flash Player, and Real player nothing was working. I was at the end of my wits, then I  asked Jesus to help me with this. As I was looking over the website,

 

 

hischannel

I came across something that said  “LIVE AUDIO Stream” TAB near the bottom was this “Live TV Bandwidth Tester” which included “SilverLight player update.

Once I downloaded and installed it on my computer, I no longer ended up with the error “No video with supported format and MME type found”

silverlight

Before installing SilverLight, make sure you uncheck the installation of the Bing Search Engine, and making MSN as your homepage, unless this is something you would like installed.

I hope this helps.

No Disc, now what do I do?


I recently was having some trouble with my computer. I was trying to watch a sermon from Greg Laurie at his website http://www.harvest.org. It was becoming very glitchy and I couldn’t figure out what was going on. I believe I was reminded by the Lord, about the video card on my computer which i had totally forgotten about. The Video Card  is a Ati Radeon HD 2600 Xt. What I had forgotten to do was load the driver on the computer, after I had recently reinstalled Windows Vista. i began searching  all over for the disk but, to no avail. I then began checking the internet for a possible website, turns out there are a lot of companies out there that will try to solve your problem, like driver update websites, some end up not helping you at all, just giving you more problems. Lucky I was able to find a link from Microsoft.com, which had a link to the AMD website. I have provided a link below

http://support.amd.com/en-us/download

when you get to the website,

AMD Automatically Detect

go down where you see Latest AMD Drivers and Software, I had tried the Automatically Detect and Install you Driver, and found this was not much help for me, maybe your results will be different.

Once you locate your specific driver, for your particular Video card you will notice that there is not one listed for the Windows Vista,

Radeon HD 2600

 

 

 

 

 

 

here click “OTHER” which will take you to another page, which ask if you have a 32 or 64 bit. To find out you will need to go  to Start> type in the Search Field “System” once you click on this, you will be taken to another window, look under “System Type, here is displayed if your computer is a 32 or 64.

Radeon HD

Once you have clicked on the proper bit size go down to where you see Downloads click on where you see Catalyst Software Suite

Catalyst Software

After downloading the program, a Window will open up, click install.

Once the program has loaded you will be prompted to click Next, and install.

Here you will have the option to either choose Express or Custom,

Try this if your CD is not working.


Last week, I popped in a cd on the book of Daniel by Chuck Missler. For whatever, reason the CD-ROM wasn’t working. I figured i would have to pick up another CD Rom, so I went around looking for ones on Amazon.com. I was told that they were pretty inexpensive. Boy,  sure glad waited.  I decided not to buy. God must have had a reason for me to wait. It turns out that Microsoft.com had something that worked perfectly. A Fix. I will provide a link this is for Windows Vista, Windows XP, and Windows 7 and windows 8.1.

https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/mats/cd_dvd_drive_problems

click the “Run now” button

Fix it

after downloading the file, click run

diagnostic

After accepting to the agreement, the program will run a diagnostic

installing Microsoft Fix it

This next step is either have Microsoft do this for you or for you to pick, if your like me you probably just want to get it over  with in that case click Recommend.

applying the fixes (Recommended)

Detecting problems

Next you can either select your device if it’s listed, otherwise select not listed.

selecting cd drive

Then you will be asked if your trying to read or write to that particular drive

Trying to read or write to device

Once it finishes your CD ROM should be working normally.

Thank you Jesus

custom or Quick: Avoiding problems


This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Today, we will be talking about how to prevent problems in the future, by doing something simple, it may take a few minutes but, in the long run, it will be well worth it. I run across several computers and they all run into the same problem, be it something they were in a hurry to do, or they didn’t know that there is an alternative, or just didn’t notice. Like for instance do we notice that when you are about to download Adobe, that it includes a free virus Scan from McAfee.

Enhanced by ZemantaThere are many programs out there it is sometimes hard to keep track of them, some them even include toolbars, so where am I going with this? Once a person download a new program, the immediately want to run it sometimes overlooking the obvious, if you do the quick install you will not notice it until your computer starts to act strange. Then there are those that include a toolbar and all of sudden your browser is offering something, that you really didn’t want. By downloading something simple as “SpeedFan” we find we could end up with such programs as Conduit Search, Optimizer Pro, so in order to avoid having these programs installed on our computer, we clicked on decline, now if we didn’t notice that there was a decline button, and just pressed next, we would have these two programs, to not install Optimizer pro, you still have to UN-check the box, then click “Decline”I hope this gave you some insight into what can happen, and if we go slowly and just don’t click with out reading each item, we will solve a lot of problems and headaches in the long run. If you do get into a mess if you download from my blog Malwarebytes, this should take care of all of your problems.
