Windows Media Player

I was using Windows Media Player to play my CD's and everything was fine until yesterday. Now I can't get any sound but if I use the other program put on my computer when I purchased it - Realtek Sound Manager - that works fine. Except with REaltek it will play about 4 tracks and then it jumps back to track 1 - or if I advance to the next track - it will jump back to the beginning after a few tracks too. Any ideas?

Rositam, Sounds Like The Drives Gone Bad...

...Whenever posting questions on these forums, please give us as much information as possible about your computer. Depending on your issue, we might need the operating system, processor speed, amount of RAM installed, brand name of the computer, (if there is one), and any EXACT error messages you are receiving, plus any other information you think might be helpful. In your case, it would be nice to know the EXACT version of WMP that you are using. The more information you give us, the better informed our answer will be.

Have you scanned your computer with spyware removal tools lately?

Have you scanned the computer with registry cleaning tools lately?

Just in case it's a software issue, please check the drive manufacturer's website and see if there are any new firmware drivers for the drive. Installing them might help.

CD-Rom's don't last forever but let's see if we can get it running first. New CD burners and drives are fairly cheap now and sometimes it's easier just to replace them.

Hope this helps.

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?
