any game that i put on my pc "hangs up" after a few minutes.
I am having a problem upon start up with my laptop hanging up. Task Manager gives me this: On Screen Display Not Responding. Nothing gets me out of it but a hard shut off. Then I have to go through a disk certification scan when I start up. It usually works then. I have tried registry fix programs, antispyware, and virus scans. Nothing seems to correct the problem.
While I am scanning a document,it suddenly froze
and "program is not responding " pops up.I do not want to power off to exit - What is the correct and effective way to solve this issue ?
My wife abd I we each have our ouw PC, they both seem to have the same problem.
Sometime a popup saying send to microsoft and sometime just not responding.
I did run sfc /scannow, did I do the right thing
I'm developing in Access 2003, and I use a lot of VBA. I have a CPU intensive process that invariably results in a "not responding" message in Task Manager. Once that happens, my progress counters also free. If I leave it alone, it finishes on schedule. Is there something like "doevents" for Access 2003? I sure would like to be able to run my application in the background, pop in from time to time to monitor its progress, and avoid the "not responding" message. Ideas?
When I sign on to the internet I receive a message program not responding.
I'm not a PC expert, but I'm quite certain that one aspect of this problem is the speed of your broadband connection. I had a very poor download speed with one provider, and switched to BT, paying for its premium broadband service. Now I've got it, 20% of all the links I click on, result in 'this program is not responding' etc - ie an entirely sudden, new problem I never had before, and without any other changes taking place (eg software, firewall etc). So I do wonder whether my PC is now just trying too hard and too fast for its own good!!?. One thing's for sure: it ain't solved easily, because even BT's own experts can't tell me whats wrong, and how it might be put right....
An update on my last comment: I SOLVED THE PROBLEM!!! I picked up a tip from another site, which was that McAfee Site Advisor is full of bugs and is prime cause of "this programe is not rsponding"... Sure enough, I disabled McAfee, and in the weeks since, I've had absolutely no problems - not one. So if you've got McAfee.....that could be your answer...
Everytime I try to open the program, Pagemanager 7, "not repsonding" appears on the top of the screen and the computer freezes. I need to scan documents but I cant even open the program. How do I solve this problem?
