    I am running Windows XP and it skips with digital files and CD's. MP3, WMa,,,,,,,doesn;t matter. It just started doing it. I have upgrades the Audio drivers and it hasn't fixed the problem. I am using Media 11. I have deleted it, rolled back to Version 9. Nothing works

    Are you playing digital files eg MP3/WMA or are you playing songs from a CD?

Try one of these solutions... should help you fix the problem.
1. System Restore (How to do? - Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools > System restore) .. Select a date when your media player used to work and restore the system.
2. Clear startup. (How to do? - Start > Run > Type in 'msconfig' > click ok to open the application, select the 'startup tab' and click on disable all, will stop startup apps... system will get a little fastser too)

When did this start? Do you know if you have a restore point saved from before this started? If so try doing a restore back to when you know the computer was working properly.

In my opinion, it sounds like a motherboard issue. The keyboard skips would indicate that the keyboard is not always getting the inofrmation to the CPU. If it freezes, it may be overheating.

Cursor skipping and jumping back into previously typed text


Hello,

Have a D600 myself and found anothe post that worked for me!

First, my problem was replying to emails the cursor would jump when typing usually back up into the middle of the text somewhere.

If this is similar, read on.

First, go to Dell's website, downlaod the latest driver for the Alps Touchpad: http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/download.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen&releaseid=R113813&SystemID=LAT_PNT_PM_D600&servicetag=&os=WW1&osl=en&deviceid=2514&devlib=0&typecnt=0&vercnt=7&catid=-1&impid=-1&formatcnt=1&libid=17&fileid=149404

Download the driver but do not install yet. Note, this is for a Dell Latitude D600, Windows XP. Vista may have a different driver.

Open Control Panel/Mouse/TouchPad Tab/Touch Sensitivity Button. Open Touch Sensitivity, adjust below the halfway point on the slider. Try different settings, you may also want to check the "Tap off when typing" box.

If you do not show these properties as above, you probably don't have the latest driver installed. In that case, install the driver you downloaded above then come back and refer to the instructions.

I spend 90% of my day on this D600 and really love it, not a speed demon, but light enought to carry with one hand and is a great email/browser machine as you probably already know!

Sound randomly cuts out


I have seen this issue before.
You could attempt to disable Audio Hardware Acceleration.

This can be found in the Sounds and Audio Devices under Performance (XP Advanced Button under Speaker settings > Performance.)

Good luck

Dell inspiron E1705 laptop to factory settings


System restore: Click Start, Programs, Accessories, System Tools, System Restore. Follow all prompts.

Remove printer: Click Start, Control Panel, Printers. Right-click Printer you want removed, then left-click "Delete".

If you restore the computer to a point in time BEFORE you installed the printer, you can skip doing the remove printer option I wrote above.

Those fixes can be done one-handed (with your mouse).

You posted in the free area, so there is no charge.

Inspiron 1100 skips when playing media


Hi Beth

doesn't sound like hardware failure.

resource check: make sure you have at least 1GB of free space on your hard drive. Close all other programs to free up as much RAM as possible. See if that helps the Issue.... sometime that system just can't allocate enough resources to a task for it to ever complete. If this helps then it's time to do some house cleaning. Best practive is to keep at least 20% of your hardrive empty so it may be time to let go of some stuff. A large amount of installed unused programs can also be an issue especially if they are set to automatically start at logon. remove unused programs highly recommended.

Assuming none of that helps here is what I would do to focus on getting media player operational

recommended steps to solve problem:
1. open media player and under the HELP drop down select the check for updates option
2. If there are updates install them and see if that resolves the issue... (try a reboot if it doesn't work after it's updated)
note: if it only happens with some CDs and not others then the issue may be with specific CODECs which are instructions for the player to be able to understand the media format. If these are not standard/ Titled US or European DVDs produced by the movie companies then this could be your issue. there should be an error telling you that it couldn't play the file.

3. download a new version of windows media player.. just google "windows media player download". Don't install it yet just download the installation file to your hard drive.
4. open the CONTROL PANEL from the START menu and select ADD REMOVE PROGRAMS
5. Select REMOVE A PROGRAM if your using one of the newer interfaces...not necessary in classic view.
6. Select ADD OR REMOVE WINDOWS COMPONENTS... its one of the big button options on the left side.
7. find WINDOWS MEDIA PLAYER in the list and uncheck it.
8. hit FINISH or NEXT or OK whatever the option at that point is and agree to making the changes.
9. Reboot the machine once it is unistalled if it doesn't already ask you to do so
10. Logon and open MY COMPUTER and locate the new installation file you downloaded in step3
11. Double click the file to initiate the installation... just accept all the defaults by click yes and I agree and Ok and FINISH until it is done.
12. Reboot once again
13. logon and give it a shot.

hope this helps!
