|Hi There Folks.|
I have a problem, to which i'd be ever so grateful if somebody could assist in solving.
OK, here goes..........
Last week I reinstalled Windows XP Pro - a clean install - had to reformat the hard disk first, no problem.
I now have all the software i require, installed.
My C: has 486gb Free
My D: has 890gb Free
Now, i've been doing some decorating around the house, and so decided to add a large number of mp3's to a playlist, so that I could listen to music whilst I worked.
I am using WinAmp.
So, i loaded the playlist, started the music, and started decorating.
Now, if i return to pc, after say, 1 hour, and then move the mouse - the music inexplicably just stops. Winamp is still running, but if i press the pause button to resume the music, nothing happens. I have to press the 'stop' button, and then press the 'play' button to start that song again.
At first i thought it was a software error - ie, a problem with WinAmp, so i tried using BSPlayer - but i still get the same problem - ie, if i leave the pc unattended and playing the music, on returning to pc, after say, 45 mins or more, and then just move the mouse to 'wake' up the pc, the music just stops - although the screensaver exits and i'm back into normal pc view.
I'm playing the mp3's off of the C: and i've gone to
My Computer > c: > Properties > Hardware > But cannot see any power setting for the hard disk.
From desktop I've gone to Properties> Screensaver>Power
And made sure that "Turn off hard disks" is set to never.
I would be extremely grateful if somebody could help.
