Update the media player to the newest version.
When media playersclip_image002.gif go through upgrades, new codecs are often added to the player along with new features.
These new codecs give the player an ability to play videosclip_image003.gif in additional formats.
Download and install a codec pack for your computer-based media player from a codec website, like Free-Codecs.

See Below
http://www.free-codecs.com/download/k_lite_codec_pack.htm
The K-Lite Codec Pack, for instance, contains multiple codecs and works with multiple media players, which gives all of the media players that are installed on your system the capability to play any video file that uses those codecs.
Once you download a codec pack, go to the "Downloads" folder on your computerclip_image004.gif, right-click the codec pack and choose "Extract All" to extract the codecs and move the codecs into a folder on your "C:" drive.
The codecs integrate into your computer-based media players automatically.

Get a new player. If you have updated your player and installed all of the available codecs, and video still won't play in the player, the player may just not have the necessary components to play your video files.
Download and install a new player, such as Winamp or the VLC Player, to your system.

Personal Media Players
Find out which video formats your media player accepts.
This information should be provided in the user's guide that came with your player. iPod, for instance, accepts video only in the M4V, MP4 and MOV formats, according to the Apple website.
Convert the video file to a format supported by your personal media player in an online conversion system.
Some online systems that can make video conversions include Movavi Online Convert and YouConvertIt.
Remove the original video file from the media player using the player's softwareclip_image005.gif, such as iTunes for iPod devices.
Then, add the new video file to the software library and drag the new file to the deviceclip_image006.gif.
Once the video is in the correct format, the codecs in the media player should read the converted video file.

The RAM is located in the middle of the motherboard.

There are tabs that you can push to release the RAM.
Remove it and put it back in place until the tabs pop out.

Loose RAM can cause your computer not to start properly where you want to see a video signal.
Remove the memory modules from their slots.
Take the opportunity to clean the slots on the motherboards and the memory module connectors.


Use compressed air to blow dust away and clean contacts with a soft cloth.
Do not use a metallic vacuum cleaner if it touches any component it may create a short and cause damage to the motherboard or other components.


Do not use solvent that may attract dust and never poke things like cotton buds in to slots. lightly rub an alcohol (Methylated Spirits) on a cloth not to hard let the alcohol do the work on the copper gold or silver tabs and r

Tip

Not able to watch DVD's or videos on your PC? No picture only audio?


Reason
If you're having a problem reading DVD's or video files on your PC the this is because you either don't have a media player installed on your system or that you don't have a recent or updated codec pack installed on your PC.

Codec update
Firstly lets get to the Codec pack. A Codec pack is a list of video decoding information that, when added to your systems codec library, reads and converts the code and instructions from the video clip to your video player. To be able to play new videos or DVD's you will need to have the latest Codec update available. You can get the latest codec pack here. All you have to do is click the Download [ K-Lite Codec Pack 6.9.0 Full ]. Once downloaded you will need to install it and you may need to reboot after the setup is complete. VLC Media Player comes with Windows Media Player Classic and a host of audio/video decoders needed to play any video or audio file.

A great Video/Media Player
If you don't have a media/video player installed then you should try this great media application I found on the net. It's called VLC Media Player and it can literally play ANY media file, especially HD videos that Media Player Classic can't handle, and the best thing is that it is totally 100% FREE. It can be found on the VLC website here.

Extra
If you want to customise your VLC media player you can, just head over to the VLC skins department and get the skin pack.

I downloaded updates for my Windows NT. I can't play mp3s anymore. COOD1059 is the error that comes out.


WELL i suppose this error is on windows media player right!?
if it is, then its a normal codec conflicts,since windows NT and others always relyied on 3rd parties softwares for decoders! i dnt know how to exactly fix it, **** i have an idea, and its to clean or optimize your registery with any free programe, ccleaner can help.
you can always reinstall your decoder...or media player(google), **** a smart thing to do is "CHANGE YOUR PLAYER" ;)
