SLOW video and sound

Specs: xphome, 1.4/512

I have slow video & sound (running about 1/3 speed) on playback, and also when I record video onto my PC. I tried Sherlock.exe and it tells me all my codecs and drivers are fine. Does anyone have any insight into this? Funny thing is, if I capture a vid onto my PC and have it save in MPEG it plays fine. BUT, if I capture it in avi form it drags? I've done sfc /scannow and also none of my drivers seem to be conflicting in device manager. My HD was reformatted and re-loaded about 2 months ago.
Thanks

I also have a laptop and another spare PC and the playback is fine on them.

Hopefully my advice will help you...Please post back with your results....thanks

Hi Johnw, thanks for the suggestion, I tried Video Inspector and it doesn't seem to work with wmv files, so I couldn't check the ones that are slow. Some MPG's work and others drag...weird!

This is most likely not the problem, but I thought I would throw it out there anyway, as I had the same problem. Your hard drive may be stuck in PIO mode. You want it in DMA mode or UDMA mode. This should fix it. Check if your computer is compatable and download the following:

Hi Andrewj357,
Thanks for the great ideas. The intel thing looks like what I need, but my MOB is not intel?
My video is nVidia. Sorry, I'm a bit stumped on this.

What I'm confused on is....the files all play fine on my other 2 pc's. Would it be a windows component that's causing the problem? I really need this PC to work, as that's where I edit all my vids on.

Hopefully my advice will help you...Please post back with your results....thanks
