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

Hey there,

Go to ur motherboard manufacturer web site
and type the Motherboard model no. in the search pane. Download the perspective driver of ur motherboard which also includes the sound driver.

Else, Go to google and type the model no of ur sound card as well as the firmware version. Download the driver with the compatibility with ur OS and then install it.

Gimme ur acknowledge by rating me.

Thanx.

I have problem my computer has not any sounds


Plug in ONLY the regular wired speakers and ONLY to the green port on the back.

Make sure they are powered up and the volume is about half way.

Ok now you need to call up ether the sound card application or preferably the windows volume control from the bottom toolbar.

Click Open Volume Control.

A box with sliders in should appear. make sure that volume control, wave, sw synth, aux, cd player, line in
are all about half way and that none of them have ticks in the box at the bottom.

If any of those are missing click options then properties from the top left and put a tick besides any that were missing (nothing else)
Now close the slider box.

Put a normal music cd in your cd/dvd player on the computer and set it to play with windows media player.
You should now have sound out of the speakers.

Double check that EVERYTHING is ok.

No sound on the PC


Hi,
Thanks for asking for solution,I would require some additional info.
1. Does windows media player give you an error while playing the file ?
2. Is the problem only in windows media player ? eg, are you getting windows startup sound.

In the meantime try system restore , take the computer back to the date when it was working fine.

ps: do let me know the make of the sound card and which windows operating system you are using

Thanks
mandeep

I need help with media player


Install winamp then try to play your CD. and scan your computer with latest antivirus software. this is seems low memory in ur system. some other application consumes more memory so may be your cd skipping.

Hi there
Is this problem with windows media player only or with rest players also.
You try to repair your media player using your XP installation CD and then install a good codec pack such as XP codec pack or K-Lite codec pack.These are available for free .
Hope this works for you.

Waiting for your thanks.

Sound device


The reason for the message will be the fact that windows doesnt recognise that there is a sound device available because the driver for your sound card or onboard sound is not built into XP and therefore you will have to find out what make of audio you have and install the relevant driver.
