  • 3. Audio CD starts playing with no CD player program running, no cont
    I just set up a computer with Win 2000 Pro. It came with a little CD player. It worked perfectly. Then, in order to have more control over all my files, I downloaded Media Player 9. Now when I put in an Audio CD. It starts playing at full volume, and there are no controls to stop, skip, etc. CD Player nor Media Player seem to be running. If I start Media player first, then put in a CD, it works, but it burps a couple times first. Like it's haing a faulse start of the first track. How do I disable the CD Player program so I can just use Media 9? I also installed Service Pack 4 and suddenly lost all my win 98 network connections. Would this have anything to do with it? I just uninstalled Service Pack 4 to see if it helps with the net connections... Baffled in Pa
  • 4. Meida Player performs Memory Dump
    I am running Windows 2000 SP4 with all the latest patches applied. I am viewing a file in Media Player and every time I exit Media Player it performs a Physical Memory Dump and restarts the computer. I am unable to find anywhere on the hard drive where the dump is loacted so I do not have any other informatio other than it is a physical memory dump. The computer responds the same way if you try and play the file from the loacal hard drive and not the CD-Rom. I have scanned the computer for viruses and spyware and the computer clean. Any help or ideas would be appreciated. Thanks.

I also had my sound files playing at double speed and downloaded 12-15
patch/update files from various sites, e.g. Intel 815 chipset update,
HP/Compaq AC97 driver updates, etc, and nothing seemed to work. I knew
it was something to do with getting a SoundMAX Integrated Digital
Audio driver to replace my AC97 one. Finally after losing the plot
several times with my pc i found the SoundMAX driver on another
similar machine (150 Kb zipped), installed it and bingo! i have calmed
down by listening to my 'Calming' music :)

My pc is a Compaq Deskpro PIII 733MHz 128RAM with integrated sound.
I don't have a place to put the driver i found (is there one
available) but if anyone wants it feel free to send me an email.

1.Sound plays too fast in mpeg files

 I'm running Windows Media Player v. 11 on Windows Vista.  When I play my 
saved mpeg clips (made on a digital camera), the visual is perfect, but the 
audio is very fast and you can't understand it.. sounds like it's going at 
10x the speed it should.  But if I play the same clips in Quick Time pro, the 
audio is in perfect synch with the video.  Any ideas?  Thanks!

2.No sound and files play at faster than normal speed


Lately I've been experiencing problems with my Windows Media Players 
versions 9, 10 and 11.
I have no sound when playing mp3 or wav files. I also don have sound when 
playing a CD or DVD.
The even stranger thing is that it does playback the music and or dvd (again 
for both no sound) but at a higher speed than normal, as I can see the timer 
going really rapidly 
forward and the green bar moving along way to fast.

I have uninstalled WMP 9, 10 and 11 and re-installed, but the problem is 
still there. I tried going back to a system repair point, but couldn't get 
back further then October (?) Also strange.

I have other media players, but they all work fine.

What causing this problem and how can I solve this?

If anyone has a suggestion, please let me know.

Best regards,
