Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

I've been experiencing audio and video problems for the last few weeks and have tried just about everything to resolve this matter. I'm able to play all music in wmp or watch downloaded movies but I'm unable to hear Windows sounds or other internet sounds. I'm unable to watch Youtube videos because they play slow. It takes about 5 minutes to watch a 1 minute clip. When I attempt to listen to other music or hear sounds, I only hear a scratchy noise from the speakers.


Answers :

You need to update your codecs.  a codec is a Coder/decoder hence the name.  the file is coded at one place and your computer has to decode it.  First off you have to find out what file isnt playing correctly be it a divx, and avi, an mpeg, an mp3 , an mp4 , a wav...... and on and on.  once you figure out wich one is messing up do a google search for the codec.  example divx = bad then search "divx codec download" and follow the links till you find one you can download.  scan it for virus then install.\015\012

Hi, I recently purchased a Gateway NV52u laptop, running the Vista 64bit operating system. Recently, I noticed that whenever I play music on Windows Media Player or Pandora, I hear severe static, both with several different sets of headphones plugged in, as well as without the headphones in. Oddly, when playing videos (Youtube, CNN, etc.), I have no sound issues whatsoever. Is this a driver problem? Or a soundcard problem? Or something else?
