ok so I recently re-formated my comp and put on XP, everything was going fine besides some hardware issues, but all of the sudden all my video files have bad crackling problems, when it gets lounder it crackles even more too, i can't figure out what the problem is, i tried codec's and that didn't work, i thought mabye it was because i was playing them off my external and my external wasn't acting right. nothing has worked and it's very frustrating. it can't be my sound card because all other sounds play fine, music, games etc. just videos don't work.
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?
