Mine just stopped working as well. All the other machines running Windows XP are running Pandora just fine on our network. The Pandora page loads, but either no sound is playing or it's very choppy to the point of maybe one note every 15-20 seconds.

RE: Pandora not working

Hey folks.

I have solved the Pandora issue on my computer and I wanted to share my fix in the hopes that it will help others. Under programs (Start>Programs) highlight the Pandora launcher, right click and select "Troubleshoot Compatibility". This will than run a utility which enables Win XP compatibilty mode. I have tested it, and Pandora runs great. This issue is tied to Flash's inability to function in a 64-bit OS. If you are running Pandora from a browser you will have to run a 32 version of that browser or run it in compatibility mode (although I would suggest paying for Pandora One because it is less of a resource hog, allows for a greater amount of skips and helps to support this great service). I hope this helps you guys out.

I had the same problem. Adobe flash was updated properly too, the problem was. The system clock on my computer. for some reason the clock would change to a different date and time like the future or past.

the fix for my computer was , going to clock settings update time and date automatically. It has to do with certificates on web sites. say windows doesn't have a certificate for a website in 1990 on a website. so it says this site is not trusted. This fixed my problem instantly after hitting refresh.

I created an account to say thank you! It worked! My system date was off and I kept getting my Pandora Gadget saying: Checking Network Connection and then trailed back to the connect screen.

Sorry about posting on an old thread, but I thought it was worth it for someone else in case it worked for them too!

Pandora fix

Try switching to Internet explorer worked for me. I had a problem with Chrome not recognizing the flash player.
