Pc plays scratchy sound when cd working


Test that the cd is ok, try another audio disk in your drive. Does the problem still occur.

Reinstall the audio drivers for your audio chipset. You may find them on the Dell website.

Take care!

Have video but no audio when playing dvd movies in wmp 11


Solution:
Well i could recommend another free video player instead of Windows Media Player 11. In this case, try installing Real Alternative, VLC, GoomPlayer all lf them support DVDs format.

I recommend Real Alternative over all 3 of them, to get it go here:
1) http://www.videohelp.com/tools/real_alternative and click on the "Download (mirror)".
2) after download is complete start the installation make sure to UNCHECK the following checkmarks during installation: Active X, and pluggin for firefox/opera/chrome/etc. you can leave the rest of the installation as default and click next all the time.
3) whenever you want to play a DVD close WMP 11 start Media Player Classic (installed during the real alternative installation, there should be a shourcut icon on your desktop for Real Player Classic now) on Media Player Classic go to File>Open DVD and you should have picture and sound.

Another extra side note of Real Alternative is that you can also play real media files (.rm, .rmvb) without having to install the nasty Real Media Player application

Hope this helps.

EasyCap DC60 USB 2.0 video capture records good video quality from VHS tapes but the audio is corrupted, sounds like the audio is being played underwater. PC is a P4 dual core with 3Gb RAM and 500Gb HDD....


U Tube has a host of fixes, but none worked for me.

One suggests popping the cover off and checking the terminal where the A/V connections go into the little PC board while listening for improvements.

Another tries other USB ports, another thinks you need to uninstall the whole thing, reboot, then
creep around in the memory startup variables and get rid of it all,

Still wondering if the damn things are mega defective. Pictures are real nice though.
