Problem with computer since getting BttF episode 1 to work

posted by Rodimus_2316 on - last edited - Viewed by 275 users

A small while after it finally started working, when I'd try to restart my computer, it'd go to my Windows XP desktop on-screen for about 5 seconds, then go to full-black for about 3 seconds, then go back to the desktop screen after, and stay. Is this really possibly done by getting the game to work, and if so, what can I do about it?

Thanks again.

    You don't have to test your speakers every time.

    It should be possible to stop the "IDT Audio Control Panel" from starting automatically. Look for it in the startup folder, and if it's there, delete it.
    If it's not there, we have to look for it somewhere else.

    You can try using autoruns. Download, unzip and run it.
    Press CTRL-F to open the search window and search for IDT. If you see the "IDT audio control panel", remove the checkmark in the "autorun" column to the left of it. If you see something else instead, press the F3 key until you find the control panel.

    Be very carful with this program and don't disable anything else by accident.

  • In the downloaded .zip file, do I activate autoruns.exe or autorunsc.exe?

    It's the autoruns.exe.

  • I searched for "IDT", and found these:

    Autorun Entry | Description | Publisher | Image Path

    SysTrayApp | IDT PC Audio | IDT, Inc. | c:\program files\idt\wdm\sttray.exe

    STacSV | Manages audio jack configurations. | IDT, Inc. | c:\program files\idt\intelxpv_v103\wdm\stacsy.exe

    STHDA | IDT PC Audio | IDT, Inc. | c:\windows\system32\drivers\sthda.sys

    \sthda.sys

    I can't be sure, but i would try these one at a time. Disable, reboot, see if the window still comes up.

  • When checking-out the bottom one, and rebooting, the IDT window didn't come up, but when I tried to play the BttF episode 1 game, I'd get to the main screen with the Play button, but after clicking on "Play", I'd get a Send Error Report thing, and the program wouldn't load. When I checked-out each of those other two, the IDT window also didn't come up, and the game worked fine. Except I think selecting the first one made the BttF game cursor move slower, not totally sure. I could be wrong, was hard to tell. Should I just keep the second one unchecked? Also, I didn't save in the autoruns program after unchecking/checking, but when the computer loaded back up, the checks and unchecks were still the same as I had made them.

    If it works best, I would try that.

    Yes, Autoruns saves what you do automatically.

  • Thanks again! I'll let you know if I have any more problems.
