Question about Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium with Service Pack 1: Windows

1 Answer

Windows os after reinstalling windows vista from a recovery dvd from 2009 i am having a few problems with the audio.i think the media player is not sending a full signal to the soundcard,, the volume is lower than before at the same settings,, but also the quality is not what it was.So , i do not want to reinstall and have to go through days of updates that are no longer offered in the right order resulting in untold update problems, then only to find nothing has changed.Can i install vista , using the same recovery dvd onto the 2nd partition of my hard drive, to see it it installs properly without deleting what i already have installed,,any help would be appreciated

    So i downloaded slim driver and it recognised that my audio driver was old , so it downloaded and installed a driver update just as it was finishing my computer went bluescreen,,now when i look at the speaker properties HDMI has gone,, before i had speakers and HDMI.,,the sound has not changed and not improved and because of the bluescreen all of my restore points have disappeared.i have done all the disable and the uninstall and search for hardware changes. this is what i think of the problem. i have never had a limiter or volume controlling turned on . most of my music played roughly at the same level, and the graphic equaliser was set to a general sound that sounded good on all different types of music,, now the music comes at extreme volume variations and i have to practically change the equaliser for each cd. another thing is i sometimes feel that its only playing one channel thats somehow been turned into a stereo channel. okay thank you for the help so far ,, but ,, i am still looking for an answer to the above question

What fies on recovery partition


Did you use a Factory Recovery DVD supplied by the cpmputer manufacturer? Or did you load the OS from a Windows Vista DVD? If you didn't use the Computer's Factory Recovery disk the recovery partition is gone, when you loaded the Windows Vista DVD and formatted the HDD. That is, if I understant your statement. If you had your HDD partitioned into 2 secions, 1 your OS and another for whatever, your OS partition, containing the recovery, has been formatted. For example: C , being your OS and D, being your recovery , are one partition.

Choppy audio windows vista


If audio is choppy it indicates the processor is "busy" and it is buffering due to some other process using up resources and keeping the machine busy so it cannot stream the audio properly. Possibly check the running processes and see which ones have high cpu usage and turn them off, then try it. It may also be a media player issue - have you tried updating the media player or reinstalling it - sometimes installing a service pack will cause a problem with the actual media player - reinstalling them usually fixes that problem.

Player not reconized


What operating system are you using? The Zen uses the MTP driver so if you have Vista or are running windows media player 10 or 11 the driver should be present and the device ought to be recognized. If not, check device manager for your zen device. If it's there, right-click and uninstall, disconnect your player and after a few seconds plug it back in. Windows should then reinstall your driver.

DVD/CD RW


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.
