When I try to run my live tv I get a message that files needed to display video are missing or corrupt and it asks me to restart the Media Center. I did that but it did not resolve the issue.

    Make sure your video card drivers are installed. Go into the device manager and look underneath the display adaptor and see what it says.

I think this refers to the MPEG decoders required to show TV in media center.
You need to install Power DVD or a stand alone decoder from NVidia or ATI

My certified data laptop quit all of a sudden and turning it off and on or even removing the battery does not help it just goes to safe mode or open windows normal and the screen stays blank


Symptoms seem to indicate either corrupted or missing driver files (probably other corrupted files on hard drive as well).

You can boot into Safe Mode, then run Command Prompt, and type the following to try to correct corruption on the hard drive:
chkdsk c: /r

You will get a message telling you the drive is in use, and would you like to run on next restart. Type "Y" and hit enter, then restart the computer. Depending on the size of your hard drive, this could take hours to run, but be patient.

If this does not resolve your problem, the next thing to try is (in Command Prompt again) "sfc /scannow". You will need your installation disks as this program does a full System File Check and will ask for your installer CD/DVD to replace any missing or corrupt System files it finds.

I hope this helps...

Windows media player won't play any audio selections , says can't find files


Windows Media Center is the home entertainment hub on a Windows computer.

With Media Center, you can play live television, songs, DVDs and slideshows.


It is preinstalled on Windows XP Media Center Edition, Windows Vista Home Premium/Ultimate Edition and Windows 7 Home Premium, Professional, Enterprise and Ultimate editions.


From time to time, users run into issues trying to play audio or video files, or with an extender connected to Media Center.


Extenders are devices that allow you to "extend" the Media Center onto a TV screen or larger display. The Xbox 360 gaming console is an example of an extender.


Launch Windows Media Center from your computer's Start menu.


Scroll down to "Music" on the Media Center home screen.

Select "Music library."


If you find an empty folder under "Music Library," navigate to the folder on your hard drive that stores your music file and add it to Media Center's library.

If the problem isn't an empty folder, look at the file extension on the music file that won't play. Media Center can't play files with unknown or incompatible extensions.


If you find a questionable extension, skip that file. Click once on another file with a different extension, one you know is compatible with Media Center, and then click "Open" to test if you can play that one.


Media Center will play MP3, CDA, WAV and other music file formats.

Open Windows Media Player from the Start menu if you receive a codec error while trying to play either audio or video files.


If you open the file in Media Player, the codec will download automatically.

You should then be able to play the file in Media Center.


Troubleshoot your firewall settings if a Media Center extender doesn't work.

You'll have a problem using an extender if Windows Firewall blocks it.


Go to "Control Panel" from the Start menu and double-click on "Windows Firewall."

Click on "Allow a program or feature through Windows Firewall." Click to check "Media Center Extenders." Click on "Apply."


Check external speaker cables to make sure they're connected if you can't hear any sound. Check the computer's volume settings by clicking on the "VOL+" icon at the bottom right corner of the main Media Center screen to make sure the volume is not turned off or down too low.


You may need to reconfigure your speakers if you're having volume or sound issues.

Scroll down to "Tasks" in the Media Center home screen and select "Settings."


Click on "General" and select "Windows Media Center Setup." Click on "Set Up Your Speakers." Follow the on-screen prompts to reconfigure your speakers.


and you should run the chkdsk utilty


You could run the chkdsk disk utility

click start run type cmd then type chkdsk/r/f which will scan for and attempt to repair any bad sectors and automatically fix any corrupt files on your hard drive


or an easier way i have found to run the chkdsk utility


click start control panel administrative tools computer management ,disk management right click on your drive select properties click tools you should see click check now click start two boxes


automatically fix files and scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors place then a tick in both boxes then select check now,start should schedule this task when restart


have no input while the chkdsk utility is in progress any input may further damage your computers operating system and hard drive.



hope this helps

Getting message ntldr is missing press ctrl alt del to restart everytime at start up


Make sure that there is not any other disk such as a floppy, CD, or USB drive connected that it is trying to boot from. If not then it sounds like the file is corrupt. It is repairable but will take some work.
You can find instructions to repair it at http://support.microsoft.com/kb/318728.

Try going into Control Panel, Add/Remove Programs, click on the Media Center software, if listed, and see if it gives a choice to Change and/or Repair. You'll probably need your Windows CD if/when it prompts for it.

Some of the files needed to play video are missing or corrupt


When that happens you usually need to backup your data, and reinstall the system to fix Windows corrupted files.

Try first doing a system restore to the most recent date before you started having the problem. If system files are damaged this will not help.

Media Center - Live TV not working


I am assuming your computer is intel. Have you tried reinstalling your video/graphics driver? Go to the intel website and search for a driver update.
