sound problems

by Father_Chaos / October 5, 2006 2:16 PM PDT

Hi all,

I have and intresting problem. My sound works on internet spaces and for system sounds but will not play sound on any kind of media file stored on the hard drive. I checked to see if it was muted or sound turned down everything is on. Has anyone got any clue on what setting is off or what setting is wrong.

windows media player and real player
by DarCLew2 / October 7, 2006 2:52 PM PDT
In reply to: more info

You might have a conflict using both players unless you set one as a default. RealPlayer has only certain types that can be played and the the end of the music would have .ra, .ram, .rmm endings but they won't work with media player. Right click your media player and at the top Tools, Options and File Types - are they all checked? the endings of the ones that play are (.file name). I have DVD Video unchecked for I use PowerDVD for that. Real9 Codec , Version:6.0.7.2222 is for Real Player Version:6.0.9.584

It should look like that, so you don't get spammed.

Try updating to a higher media player
by ask4anu / October 7, 2006 5:04 PM PDT
In reply to: sound problems

sounds to me as if your codec files have become corrupt if you upgrade to say media player 9 10 or 11 this should take care of the problem if this doesnt work then you have other corruption and now would be a good time to buy a real copie of windows OS so you can repair the os RESTORE DISKS SUCK IN SO MANY WAYS and you get screwed over because you are not actually removing the data secotors but just over writing them and that could lead to a whole host of problems with your os and HOW or what was wrote to it and what works and what dont it is time for you to learn how to install windows from a real CD and how to low level and high level format your drive and if you are not ready to learn that then you my freind need to give up PC all together becuase you will allways have problems with in the os kernel how well you become and fixing these is up to you

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?
