Question about Microsoft Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005 for PC

1 Answer

Sounds skipping and missing in some areas on media player

I have windows Xp, I bought the computer in 2003, I have a Sound blaster sound card by creative installed. Most of the time, when I try to play media files, I hear the computer skipping and missing like a scratched CD, What is the problem and how to fix it.

Oh, I almost forgot, if it helps or means anythin, my burner is broken and won'r open or play cds and also it won't brn cds, I have to pry it open with a knife if I ever want to open it. The skipping thing is really what bugs me though

Gimme ur acknowledge by rating me.

Thanx.

I've got crative inspire t7900 not workin


You can hear music and sound when you test your audio and also the Windows startup and shutdown even sounds. But you can't hear any music when you play it in Windows Media Player or the videos on youtube because Windows Media Player needs some codecs installed and you don't have those installed.

You can download and install this Media Player codec pack from Microsoft.

Hope that helps,
Regards,
Raspal

Sound is nt coming from speakers?


Do you have two sound cards in your computer now or have you removed or disabled the old sond card?

FYI, looks like in the media player you havent selected the right sound output.

Try this,
1. In Windows Media Payer, Menu bar-> Tools -> Plug-ins -> Options.

2. Go to Device tab and click on Speakers ad the click Proprties button below.

3. Click Advanced

4. Select your new hadrware.(Creative Aspire 5.1)

5. Click Set as default.

6. Click OK, OK OK...

Then restart Windos media player and try again.

-------------
Another thought, make sure you have pluged the jacks right and you speakers are working right.

Good Luck!!!
