Vista 32 OS problem..Windows Media Player 11 stopped working

Up till now, Media Player 11 was working fine. I need it to view instant movies on Netflix. Attempted to use Netflix yesterday and it crashed Internet Explorer. Tried to just open Media Player 11 and it crashes soon as it starts saying there's a problem. I've attempted all the solutions from Windows help and nothing has helped yet.

Any suggestions and help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

Windows XP and Vista and 7 have built-in device-drivers for all CD-readers and DVD-readers.

Download the free 'VLC Media Viewer' software, to play DVD-movies on your computer.

I would try a "fresh install" of Windows 7 again, but if that seems like far too much hassle, then you could download VLC player

Replaced harddrive and now i cant get my dvd player to work not detecting a decoder


Best thing to do would be downloading Windows Media Player 11. It has the latest features plus it'll ask you to download the latest codecs as well.

Go to the page to get Windows Media Player 11 right here.

Click on downloads and then follow the directions from there.

After its installed then go ahead and as long as your dvd player is working and seeing the dvds thats being put in the drive, your movies should work now.

Cannot play DVD, cd video wont play to media player


not sure whether its a problem with the drive or a problem with windows media player. Take a can of air and blow some onto the laser of the dvd drive, this will make sure that there is no dirt or dust on the laser.

Once you do that put the dvd back into the drive. Give it about 20-30 seconds and then see if it tries to pull up the movie if it does and your getting errors from windows media player then we know that the drive is working cause its seeing the movie properly.

At that point, I would suggest downloading the latest version of windows media player.

Go here to download the latest version of Windows Media Player 11.

After doing that and installing it, try playing your movie again, in fact try several movies just to make sure. Windows Media player may want to download Codecs, if it does then let it. This will allow it to recognize dvds better and quicker.

If the codecs are updated and you still can't get it to see and play movies then I would suggest using a different dvd player such as Cyberlink PowerDVD located on this page:

Sounds like a software/driver issue. Search for updates for your audio drivers (visit the webpage of the company that built your sound card - Creative, Realtek, etc.) and see if you need an update. Updates keep your hardware working with Vista. Also try using a different media player. I haven't heard anything about loss of stereo sound in a player before, but I know Windows Media Player is notorious for annoying pops and clicks during playback, so it's possible.

Sound doesn't work on Sony Vaio VGN-sz480


I'm confused. A Codec is used in an audio player like Media Player 11. If your computer has no sound when it comes on then you need a driver. I looked up your model and found a Realtek driver speciafically for your machine. You can download this at: http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/swu-list.pl?mdl=VGNS460. If you need an Audio CODEC for your media player I would suggest downloading PowerDVD from download.com to insure that your system sound is working correctly then you can use the Microsoft CODEC installation package to determine the real missing CODEC.

NetFlix movies


If your computer has these hardware specs:

Windows XP with Service Pack 2 or higher, or Windows Vista; Internet Explorer version 6 or higher; Windows Media Player version 11 or higher; an active broadband connection to the Internet; 1.0 GHz processor; 512 MB RAM; 3 GB free hard disk drive space.

you should be ok with the movies download and watch.

Other wise you will probablt need new hardware which is really tough to upgrade on a laptop.
