Coming to my problem first,I am not able to play any video file in any player(VLC,Media Player Classic,GOM,etc).But when i open the same video file in two players at the same time,I could watch that file without any problem in the player in which i opened second.But if i open it using only one player at a time,i get errors like qdvd.dll (in classic),msvcrt.dll(VLC), GOM).

PS: I am currently using Xp,but am using Windows 7 themes,icons,boot screen,login screen,etc..Can this be the cause of my problem?please let me know..

Pls give me an immediate solution to this.

I own the Compaq R3000.

It didn't come with XP Pro so that's our clue that some one installed XP PRO.

Maybe they forgot some video or other driver? Tell more about how this machine got XP PRO.

But I can use that. Recent updates can include those optional drivers. Look over your video and audio drivers in WIndows Update and roll those back.

Hint: Don't get drivers from MSFT.

May I suggest ...

you immediately uninstall all your Windows 7 software and see if that makes a difference? You're the best person to answer that question. We can't.

If it doesn't help immediately do a clean install of Windows XP and try again. It's more than likely that things will be OK then.
Should take 1.5 hours at most. I hope that's immediate enough.

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?
