Hi folks,

I recently reinstalled Win XP SP2 due to a hard drive problem. Since the reinstall I've had audio problems when playing an AVI file. The actual sound is barely audible, and there is a loud random popping sound.

I've downloaded the XP audio and video codecs and reinstalled them - no help. I don't have a problem with 3GP video files or MP3 files or YouTube files and the video looks fine on the problem files.

When I use Ulead Movie Factory and burn the files to a DVD they play fine on my TV DVD player so it's just a problem with sound on the PC. Any tips would be appreciated.

You should see if you have the current audio driver installed.
If I have replied to a topic and you reply and I haven't gotten back to you within 48 hours (2 days) then send me a P.M.

If it's all types of sound, regardless of source...I would look at drivers.

If it's sound with a particular type of file...I would look at codecs installed. I would download/install something like the K-Lite codec pack.
