Hi There,

Windows Media Center Edition is exactly that; an "Edition" of XP Pro. If you go to My Computer and then click on System Properties, you will likely be comforted to see that you indeed have Windows Media Center Edition 2005.

Low sound


Method 1: Try another sound device loadTOCNode(2, 'resolution'); If possible, plug a different output device into the computer. For example, if you have been using speakers, try a different pair of speakers or a set of headphones to make sure that the problem is not related to the device itself.

Determine whether you can hear sound. If you can hear sound, there is a problem with the original output device and the issue is resolved. If you cannot hear sound, plug the original output device back into the computer and go to method 2.

Method 2: Use the Windows XP Sound Troubleshooter loadTOCNode(2, 'resolution'); Windows XP includes a troubleshooting program which could help you resolve your sound issues. Start the Windows XP Sound Troubleshooter automatically or manually and then answer each question on-screen in order to try to find a resolution.

Step 1: Start the Sound Troubleshooter loadTOCNode(3, 'resolution'); If you are already familiar with Windows XP Help and Support Center, click the following link to start the Sound Troubleshooter:

OR

Start Sound Troubleshooter manually by using the following steps:
  1. Click Start, and then click Help and Support.
  2. Under Pick a Help Topic, click Fixing a problem.
  3. In the navigation pane on the left, click Games, sound, and video problems.
  4. In the topic pane, on the right side, click Sound Troubleshooter.
Step 2: Use the Sound Troubleshooter loadTOCNode(3, 'resolution');
  1. Click the option that describes the problem that is occurring, and then click Next.
  2. Repeat step 1 until your problem is resolved or until you have reached the end of the troubleshooting path.

    Note You can click Back at any time to repeat the last step, or you can click Start Over to start the Sound Troubleshooter again.
Determine whether you can now hear sound. If you can hear sound, the issue is resolved. If you cannot hear sound, try method 3.

Method 3: Update your Media Player software loadTOCNode(2, 'resolution'); If the sound problem that you are experiencing occurs when you use a media player such as Microsoft Windows Media Player, try updating your media player software. To obtain the latest version of the Windows Media Player, visit the following Microsoft Web site: http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/download/AllDownloads.aspx (http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/download/AllDownloads.aspx) Determine whether you can now hear sound. If you can hear sound, the issue is resolved. If you cannot hear sound, try method 4.

Method 4: Update sound drivers loadTOCNode(2, 'resolution'); Out-of-date sound drivers may cause sound problems. Check whether an updated sound driver is available. You can use Microsoft Update to help you determine your current sound driver and if an update is available. Then contact the sound driver hardware or the computer manufacturer to request an updated sound driver.

To find out whether applicable driver updates are available, visit the following Microsoft Windows Update Web site: http://update.microsoft.com (http://update.microsoft.com) If the sound driver is out of date, follow these steps to find the name and provider of your sound driver:
  1. Click Start and then click Run.
  2. Type dxdiag in the Open box, and then click OK.
  3. Click the Sound tab.
  4. Under Device, look for Name, and under Driver, look for Provider.
  5. Click Exit.
Contact the manufacturer of the sound driver to request an updated sound driver.

For information about your hardware manufacturer, visit the following Web site: http://support.microsoft.com/gp/vendors/en-us (http://support.microsoft.com/gp/vendors/en-us)

Windows xp media center error occurs when trying to record programs


When that happens you usually need to backup your data, and reinstall the system to fix Windows corrupted files.

Try first doing a system restore to the most recent date before you started having the problem. If system files are damaged this will not help.

The media center is part of the WMC operative system. You can also reinstall media center alone using add remove programs, then Add remove windows components. Often that does not work, and you need to use a Windows MCE setup disk to fix the problem.

Sound cuts out on one speaker


Are you able to get sound on the speakers without the media center? In case if the problem is just not limited to media center-Then it could be a sound driver issue...!
In case if the sound works fine outside the media center then its a setting problem with the media center.i suggest you run the first run wizard to reset the media center.
To reset the media center
1)Navigate to
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Microsoft\eHome
locate the file- ehshell.config-Just right click and delete it
2) delete the following registry keys
open registry editor
Start > Run > type regedit and hit enter
it opens a registry editor window
locate the following keys
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Media Center\Settings
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Media Center\Settings
right click on these keys and delete them..You just have to dig down to these keys and delete them in the left hand pane. and then close the registry editor and restart the system.
After the reboot windows will ask you to reconfigure the media center-you just have to follow the wizard to complete the process...This should do the trick and should avoid a complete reinstallation of windows.
Good Luck.
