Try this, it worked for me:
Right-click on the desk top
properties, settings, advanced, troubleshooting
Then slow down the "hardware acceleration"
Now it plays video just fine!

You have to set the laptops screen size to match the limits of the projector.
usually at 1024x768 at 60hz refresh
just go to the display properties and set these on the laptop.
right click on desktop/properties/settings
the 60hz is the advanced /monitor tab

Losing ripped CD's And downloads from Windows Media Player


When you rip using WMP the music files are saved in a default location.
  • Open tools
  • Open Rip
  • Read "Rip Music to This Location"
  • If no artist on CD the folder will be "Unknown Artist"
  • In that folder contains by date-...the folders containing your music
You can check before you close WMP that they are saved

I CANNOT delete music from my windows media player, even though it has the delete function. What is happening and why? thanks


Try deleting the files in Explorer while Media Player is running. WMP should notice that the files are being deleted and should remove them from the library too.Speaking for myself only.
See http://zachd.com/pss/pss.html for some helpful WMP info.

I have a problem with displaying power point presentation


Hello, Chris.

I'm not certain if this was already tried, but here goes:

If you look at you keyboard function (F) keys, you'll see a symbol or the words "CRT/LCD". On my laptop, it is F8, but could be different on yours.

When you connect an external screen to your laptop, if the laptop information doesn't show on the external screen, press your Fn key plus that function key with the symbol or words.

Normally, when you press once, twice and three times, you toggle through various options: your laptop screen only, your external screen only and both screens.

Hope this helps.

How can I use windows media player to download the live U2 concert on youtube so I can save it on my PC to burn to a disc later.? Ric


Don't waste your time with WMP. Go to Real player .com and down load the free version. It will allow you to download just about any web video and burn it to disk. Have fun and a great day.

VGA Problem


This sounds like a driver or software issue. Check Dell's support site for any projector related drivers or software, and also check the projector manufacturer's site for drivers or software. You might also look for any Windows media player updates.

Issues!!help please


If you open the DVD from "Media Player Classic", i think it should work.
Go to the installation folder of K-Lite Codec Pack (Probably C:\Program Files if you didn't change it)
The open de folder "Media Player Classic" and execute "mplayerc.exe".

Make sure the DVD is in the DVD-drive and go to File -> Open DVD

If this does not work, I think you have a very special DVD, or the DVD is damaged...

Please post some feedback

Mine is an ongoing issue, for almost 6 weeks now. I cannot access my Pinterest account. I get no results when I sign on to Pinterest, or when I push the Pinterest button. The first sign of trouble was when I got a message that something had run out or stopped and at that point I was told to paste something to my browser. This was Greek to me and thus began my many desperate pleas for help. At 70 years old, I am unable to follow any instructions. The second thing I was told was to deactivate my account and then reinactivate it. I then read that to deactivate would lose all my boards and pins, so then I was and still am, afraid to do anything! I adore Pinterest. I am a shut in, physically challenged and Pinterest adds so much joy to my daily life. My last email was from a woman, at Corp., and she listed several suggestions...however, I did not understand them, plus, if I exited the email to do what she instructed, I had to hope I could still have the email to go back to, and I immediately did the unthinkable...I lost the email entirely. I am so fed up with myself at this point, I had a computer repair man come to the house to work on my iPad and my laptop, but he said he knew nothing about Pinterest and could not help me at all. I have contacted you for help so many times on this, it is embarrassing and I am sure I have made a nuisance of myself. The initial email, notifying me that something was wrong with my account, is when all the trouble began. I have enjoyed Pinterest for several years, and have no idea what the initial email was talking about. That is when I was told to deactivate and then deactivate my account, and also told to paste something to my browser. It sounds so simple, but I am at a total loss. Again, I am terrified of losing my boards and 57,000.00 pins. Can someone at Corp. try again to help me? Also, is there any chance that they could call me and instruct me over the phone? I am desperate to save my boards/pins.Could someone please try one more time to help me? Carol Thompson Hollyhockheaven 623 910 9386
