You can listen to your favorite music without having to carry your laptop everywhere by sharing your music library on a wireless network. Here is a tutorial to show how to stream music from one laptop to another. Using
this method digital media such as videos and pictures can also be
accessed from anywhere easily. By the following method you can listen
music or view your photos or movies stored in your computer from
different places in the network.
First we'll connect the server laptop to a wireless
home network. This laptop has Windows 7 with Media player 12 and it has
all the music, videos and media that you want to share. Right-click on
the Internet notification area and select 'Open network and sharing
center'. Now, click on 'Connect to a network' and from the list of
networks, choose the preferred one and connect. Enter the secure
network key when prompted.
Let's create a 'HomeGroup'. From 'Network and
Sharing Center', click 'HomeGroup' and then 'What is a network
location?'. You'll see a window with three options. Select the first
one that says 'Home Network'. In the following window, select what you
want to share and click 'Next'. Follow the onscreen instructions and
In 'Network and Sharing Center', click 'Change
Advanced Sharing Settings' and make the changes. Then go to 'Media
Streaming Options' and allow people you want access to your files. Open
Windows Media Player, go to 'Stream' and click 'Automatically allow
devices to play my media'. The content you chose to share is now on
To access this content on a client PC or laptop,
first connect the machine to the same wireless network as the server
laptop, using the previous procedure. Vista users can right click and
directly select 'Connect to network'. Assuming that both laptops are in
the same network, open Windows Media Player and see of you can find the
shared server laptop in the left pane.
To find shared media on the network and to share
media from the client PC, in WMP, right-click on Library and click
'Media Sharing'. Here, you can allow or deny access to other PCs and
find the media you're looking for. Click 'OK' when you're done. Now,
the server PC will appear in WMP and other functionalities will remain
same. You're now ready to play the music which is stored on the server

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.
