CD/DVD drive only plays half first song, then skips


NO OS STATED is this XP?????
the OS is corrupted, some way, or drivers.

here are the possibles.
desktops only.
i cant see it so here goes,
is there a sound card inside the PC? in a PCI slot.???
or only the onboard sound there.
is this with external speakers. or USB phones.?
USB phones, load a 2nd sound chip that cases the onboard to fight with the USB chip ,if not setup very very carefully , ask.
all assume external speakers ,. and no Sound cards in the PCI slots.


1: OS corruption reload load it (or infected is #1 )
2: or the sound driver is corrupted or wrong one, install it fresh from HP. only from HP.

here is your support page
ever see this, this is #1 most imporant.

https://support.hp.com/us-en/product/HP-Pavilion-Media-Center-m8200-Desktop-PC-series/3548182/model/3548183


this PC came new with, 6 different OS new.
32bit or 64bit windows
XP, VISTA or W7
i can not guess yours.

but if your PC is not slammed with wrong OS then these all work
if you go there, and tell it your OS>
you see drivers, see sound? driver audio . see that?
i looked at Vista 32.
the chips there is called Realtek..

if you placed mp3 file on the hdd in folder (test)
then ran say, this small player first

http://www.foobar2000.org/

and if that fails, we know know the OS is messed up.
do a full virus sweep first, then malwarebytes free.
reload the realtek driver yet?

and would have saved buying new hardware.
if the file cant play the OS is messed up on MP3, file.
or a wave file

there are other causes, bad hdd, too.
id bet its not the Sound chip bad !
only OS bad. (infected, drivers wrong, or bad player, or OS corruption of any kind)

My laptop have lost its sound. whenever i play any song it says bad direct drivers. please install proper drivers error code it says 8780078


The problem with your computer is your audio driver, all you have to do is to copy the brand name and model of your laptop. Then go to their official website and search that model of your laptop. On their official you can download the driver for your laptop and install after downloading so that your audio driver will update and fix the problem. Have a nice day!

Hi there,

Well this is because of driver problem, you need to install sound driver in your computer. Post some information of your computer brand and model or motherboard, or you can type model number + sound driver in Google to download the driver......

Today,I open a song to listen it but when i play the song with winamp the message come that bad sound speaker and error 88780078


That is a Bad DirectSound Driver Error. If the problem persists, make sure you have the correct sound card drivers installed. Also try downloading and installing the newest driver for your hardware.

If you click on Start, and then Run... type in dxdiag and press ok.
This will bring up DirectX where you can run some test with your soundcard.
