a better media player?

by rhodeyes1 / December 20, 2008 9:50 PM PST

I have an HP Pavilion running millenium. Processer is 633Mh and ram is 192Mb. I want to know if there is a media player I can run that has cleaner videos than the Windows media player 9 (can't get higher than 9) and still have the repeat and full screen function. Thank you

It might depend on what type of video's you want to play, but I think you're more in need of a better PC than a better player.

WMP 9 should present the video as cleanly as the source gives us. I find some are expecting HiDef output from low quality content. The brutal answer is that today's software can't reclaim what isn't in that file.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
