It sounds as though you may have taken out Media Player - You can download the 7.1 version from Microsoft at: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=6ccfee89-3d4f-42ee-9239-0893b2c40a62&displaylang=en

Another possibility is to go to: http://www.free-codecs.com/download/Media_Player_Classic.htm
This is useful little freebie player of quite a few bits and bobs.
The Quicktime and RealPlayer alternatives are useful and don't try to take over your system...

Good luck

Struggling with sound and video stuttering.


Sounds like you have too much invisible crap running in the background. Try these:

hit the windows key and type msconfig in the search bar, click the startup tab and uncheck everything that isn't acer or windows related. Restart computer

download malwarebytes and ccleaner, update and run both. Delete/quarantine all spyware and viruses

click start>control panel>add and remove programs. delete every program that isnt 100% needed. If it wont let you delete, google the program and how to delete it since it's probably spyware.

start>accessories>system tools>disk defragmenter(don't bother if you have an SSD hard drive)

if these don't work try start>accessories>system tools>system restore. restore to a point before you had this problem

I've been experiencing audio and video problems for the last few weeks and have tried just about everything to resolve this matter. I'm able to play all music in wmp or watch downloaded movies but I'm...


you need to update your codecs.  a codec is a Coder/decoder hence the name.  the file is coded at one place and your computer has to decode it.  First off you have to find out what file isnt playing correctly be it a divx, and avi, an mpeg, an mp3 , an mp4 , a wav...... and on and on.  once you figure out wich one is messing up do a google search for the codec.  example divx = bad then search "divx codec download" and follow the links till you find one you can download.  scan it for virus then install.

should fix the problem.

I have /had Windows 98 on my computer and a friend installed windows xp. I tried to get rid of Xp but lost Win 98, I have the original RestoreDisk for my compaq but it will not let me install to get back...


Have you tried booting the system with the restore disk, well it should reformat the system before it installs a fresh copy of windows 98 so you should back-up data before proceeding and check the boot sequence in your bios, set the first boot device to CD/DVD.

I hope this helps:)

Muffled sound


I think it might be a driver or a codec missing. Eeeh... do you hear the same thing while listening to music? If you don't it is definitely a software issue! From here I would try reinstalling the software, or get the most updated version of the software (I'm assuming you're using Windows Media Player). Let me know if you're using a specific software.
