    I believe it is a problem with me installing java...

    I bought a computer off newegg a while back. And I just went to buy minecraft only to find out I keep having a trouble starting/installing it. I have uninstalled/reinstalled and restarted my computer multiple times only to keep having trouble. Minecraft does not work in a browser nor does it work on my desktop. It also is unable to work from a cracked version as well as the payed version.

    (When I say does not work/have trouble I mean it will not load what so ever, no errors or anything)

    Any help, thank you.

    Maybe run the advance minecraft error test and try to find out.
    If you think it's java, then make sure minecraft is getting the right java for your operating system. (64 or 32 bit)
    Just re-install java JDK it if that's the case.

    Ok well just uninstall all of the java installers, and make sure you download the 64 bit java Offline installer.
    http://javadl.sun.com/webapps/download/AutoDL?BundleId=71837
    also make sure your path goes to your Program Files and not the "(x86) program files" folder (if your machine also runs 32bit).
    You can check if your java is successfully installed here:
    http://java.com/en/download/installed.jsp
    If not.. then try force updating in the minecraft launcher.
    If that doesn't work, then I think you should get professional help from
    http://www.minecraftforum.net/
    I wish you luck.

    I tried that java (and made sure to put it in the correct folder) and the JDK and still does not want to work.

    :(

    Well first, you won't need JDK so go ahead and throw that out, JDK stands for Java Development Kit for developers ect. You just need JRE (Java Runtime Environment) Can you get the actual client downloaded or is it an error downloading the mc files themselves?

    I run as administrator. Wait for it to load, click next, it tells me that it installed completely and correctly, i click finish and nothing seems to change. Even after system restart.

    That error was from the pirated version right? Run the legit one and see what it does.

    I solved the problem. I reinstalled java by using a different download link and using an uninstaller pro, and then there was an error with the way my txt displayed. I had to change through control panel.

    Thanks for your help though!
