On the driver part. Goto the websites of the companies your componets came from, such as your video card, sound card, ect. Goto their support section and often Driver Downloads will be there. Check the listed most current driver against the one you currently have running. To check your current driver you need to goto your control panel and open up the device manager. However, I haven't really found a time when the website drivers weren't the most up-to-date, however I have had problems with up-to-date drivers, especially when they are first released, so it is a little hit and miss.



o.k., like too much trouble now, but after a few sp1 security updates and following some tips and such, i'ma going try it again... brb

I'm looking at the specs on display here, and thinking that there's pretty much no way you're going to be able to watch x264 encodes on that. XviD encodes if you are lucky, maybe.

well, i just updated all my drivers and i finished doing some scans and well what's weird is... i can get a perfect signal using windows media player or media player classic, but the sound sucks and then well you know the rest :roll:

funny, too bad MY PARENTS are over protective and i can't till i'm 18, so thanks... damn you parents! *shakes fist*

o.k., i updated all my drivers, i did all the reg scans, virus and spyware scans... malware and adware scans and i even ran defragmenters till all my drivers were problem free, audio and video works on everyother file, except files from here....

audio sucks in mediplay classic, vlc and zoom

video sucks in windows media player 10 and replayer.

now i've followed aton of tips and even did some tweaking, which all it did was speed up my computer and improved my media experience with other files, except ones with amvs!
