Windows Media Playback & Streaming

Hewlett-packard / Compaq nc6000

Specs: Windows XP Professional, Intel Pentium M 1400MHz 512mb
I have just purchased a second hand laptop
which came with XP pre-installed. On top of
this I have installed Windows Media Player 11
to enable me to watch live streaming and
certain files. I have downloaded a .wmv file
which plays on my main PC but won't play on
my laptop and also I'm unable to live stream.
All the advice points to WMP 11 because it
allegedly has all the required codecs. But
obviously something is wrong somewhere. I
also have problems viewing certain websites
correctly, I keep getting the "done but with
errors on page" message on sites I don't have
a problem with on my main pc.

Any help would be much appreciated.

why not try VLC player and see if that works
Sounds like you may not 'allegedly' have the proper drivers installed....are there any error messages?
Also don't forget, it is a used laptop and there may be things corrupt in the OS.
You can probably try an sfc /scannow if you have the proper disc to reload any windows components that might be faulty.

Some HELP in posting on Computing.net plus free progs and instructions Cheers
