Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

I am having issues with my media player 11

\015 Windows Media Player cannot access the file. The file might be in use, you might not have access to the computer where the file is stored, or your proxy settings might not be correct.\015\012\015\012i am running windows xp\015

Answers :

This errors generally means that the file is being used by another application. If you are reading from a usb key or a mp3 player or another application eg. winamp is using the file or explorer has it open then you may encounter this issue.

\015\012The best thing to do is is close every other application except for media center, inlcuding exploer eetc etc...also press control alt del to get the task bar up and have a look at what application is running in the back ground and turn the ones you know off as well then run it again. It may help you identify your problem.

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?


Yes, you are having driver issues with the applications that are giving you problems. Did you upgrade your media player yourself or automaticly? There is a 64 bit version for vista to install. I expect that the media player is the application hat ... Gateway PC Laptops
