help

I am having probs with wmp11. It is taking about 40 seconds to load play any song I click on. All my albums are loaded on my cpu and I have plenty of free space on my hard drive. I have tried uninstalling it, re-insalling it, installing wmp9 etc, but the prob is still there.

I am a cpu newbie so apologies if I have missed off any tech data.

cheers in advance

Some additional info about your system, e.g. Operating System, computer make/model, may be helpful.

Does this delayed response occur when you use any other applications? Or does it only happen with WINDOWS MEDIA PLAYER?

WINDOWS MEDIA PLAYER PROBLEM
by BOBBYVLEE / March 28, 2007 10:01 PM PDT

I down loaded Windows Player 11 and could not play DVD Or CD. I uninstalled and went back to Window Player 10 but still cannot play. I thought I had it as default but can't seem to get it to play a DVD/CD. I have decoder and also tried InterVideo 8 without success. I can use the Drive to load Software. I have ried to change some defaults and I will be able to play a DVD and just when I think it is fixed it will not play. Thanks, Bob

It is best to create a new Topic/thread instead if hijacking some one Else's to avoid confusion, especially since these threads sometimes get quite long. So I would suggest you re-post your request for help in a new one.

As noted above the text box where you typed your post, please Note: If you're asking for technical help, please be sure to include all your system info, including operating system, model number, and any other specifics related to the problem. Also please exercise your best judgment when posting in the forums--revealing personal information such as your e-mail address, telephone number, and address is not recommended.

Other info regarding the CD/DVD player Make/Model and weather it is new or recently installed and if have uninstalled or installed associated drivers. Also, how did you uninstall/reinstall the Windows Media Players. And of course any other info you think may relate to the problem.

In reply to: BOBBYVLEE

I am very sorry to have done that. I have never replied to any of these before. I noticed the WMP and just asked my question. I did not
instead if hijacking some one Else's. Again, I am Sorry.

Media Players...

Be certain that you do not have a second Media Player installed..
..
You may need to un-install some Media Software like MusicMATCH..
..
Are you running an INDEXING Program..??..
..
Is your Security Software running a Scheduled SCAN..??..at Start-Up or what-ever..??
..
OPEN the TOOLS section of WMP and configure it..
..
Use the MUSIC Folder in XP to store your FILES..
..
Thats about all I can think of.

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?
