So I just upgraded to Windows 10 a week ago (I never had this Issue with Windows 8).When I did so I noticed that when watching videos in Chrome some videos refused to load. When it does this the video sits there with the buffer symbol and will not load and I have fairly fast internet.However some sites play more videos than other. For example Youtube will load almost all the videos I want to watch but a few will not load, But If I want to watch something on a social media sites the videos will almost never load. I've tried updating Chrome and Flash and reinstalling Chrome with no success. [URL]
However, the same cable connected to my HDD was connected to my SSD. (I fried my HDD due to over voltage) now when I try to watch videos or when I try to listen to music it will all play, but will stop after about 12 seconds and freeze. I have tried restoring windows 10, I checked my Intel SSD with their toolbox software, and I have uninstalled and reinstalled my drivers for my Astro A40s and MIXAMP-TR along with the firmware.
I never experienced any of this before the frying of my HDD. So could it be the SSD? Because the HDD was used for only steam games and nothing else. My graphics card is the Gigabyte GeForce GTX 970. The SSD is Intel 730 Series 480GB. My HDD was the Seagate ST 1000DM003 1 TB. URL...In playback devices the green bars stay frozen and no audio can be heard.My Internet download speed has also decreased from 70 mbps over LAN to 10 mbps, and I know this is not my ISP because my other devices are still around 70 mbps.
Is it ok to delete Music, pictures, and videos folders from C:/Users/user? I recall this not working and having to hack the registry a bit to make it work in Windows 7. How can I do it in Windows 10? I really don't need these folders as I find they just clutter up my file explorer and anyway I choose to store my media elsewhere.
I'm trying out the chromecast device to hopefully eliminate having to move my laptop across the room and connect it via hdmi every night to watch movies on my tv screen. In windows 7 I could just drag the file into a new chrome page and it would open the file which could then be cast. Now when I drag a movie file into chrome it creates a download window in the bottom of chrome like any other file download, and then if I open it from that it just opens my default video player and plays the movie file. Any way to view local video files in chrome browser like you could in windows 7?
Each time i watch a video in Chrome the browser start to behave weird, if i am on the same tab as the video playback and i try to type a word to search or url in URL bar and press enter the browser's loading icon never stops spining and i must close that tab and create a new one and the browser becomes really slow .My theory is:
A) Internet Download Manager may cause the problem
B) Google Account Sync may slow down the browser ???
C) The Avast online security add-on/plugin browser may is causing the problem
I have and Alienware laptop which automatically updated last night. I woke up and turned it on and it tells me my PC has been updated. When it comes all the way on everything is back to normal until i go to listen to music. This is when i realized no sound is working. I plug in my headphones and sure enough, it starts to work, but when i unplug them it does not work. I've gone through all the settings and stuff and i cant figure out what the problem is.
When I'm trying to launch some programs like Mumble, Origin, or QBittorrent, maybe once or twice Blizzard Client, they just dont launch, have high cpu usage in task manager forever, and wont launch, until I delete process and try again or relogin/reset PC, more often the latter. I don't really know what do to, and updating Windows for now is hard, because I also got some problem when doing it, even by ISO.
I have been having an issue where either playing a game or just watching youtube sound just stops and I have to restart the service and then it works again. It doesn't say its not running or that is crashed it just stops working but still "runs"?
When I start a HD movie, or just have windows or Kodi on, I get this static noise, and when I play a video it gets even louder. It sounds like the volume is turned up really high. When there's sound from the movie you really can't hear it, but when it's a quiet part or only talking, it's audible.
However, since I watch shows and movies mostly with headphones, it's really an issue, it is very audible and disturbing. I've noticed that when I move my cursor in Windows I get a faint "extra" static sound.
I use a Bluetooth keyboard/mouse combo. I've tried disabling WiFi, Bluetooth, changing drivers, change where I connect the power cord in the wall.
This is not an issue with my xbox, or my old non-windows, non-pc media player. There was a very faint static on the old media player, but that can be attributed to many a thing, but wasn't a problem.
System: Fanless htpc. 120W psu.(it's located at the opposite end of where my hdmi is connected, and uses an external block as a transformator.) Skylake cpu. Gigabyte z170n wifi MB.
I'm having a problem with windows 10, it keeps resetting my default apps for watching videos and listening to music.
I want Windows Media PLayer to be my default app for all of these multimedia files but at least once a day a pop up informs me that there was a problem with one of my default apps and that it has been reset to default.
Is there anyway to disable Windows from taking this action?
I have gone into settings in my Windows 10 and changed the default music player from groove music to windows media player. But when I click on music files, it automatically starts playing in Groove and NOT windows media player. I have restarted Windows several times with the same results.
I just did a fresh install of Windows 8.1 and upgraded to Windows 10. My issue is that the system is unresponsive, programs are not responding. I took a video but I can`t seem to find any possibility to post it here, so you can`t see what I`m going through. It is really annoying, and it`s just messed up. Multitasking hangs, shows programs in the background and what not... What to do?
I`m also thinking it is a memory leak, I have 25-30% RAM use after bootup....

All was good when we first uploaded windows 10 but suddenly all sound has failed although system says the devices are working. Also the CD / DVD had stopped working whilst again the system tells me all is fine.
For some unknown reason, the system icon for sound no longer displays on my task bar. I went into Properties, Notification area 'Customize', Turn System Icons On or Off, see that the Volume is turned off, but it's greyed out and I can't turn it on. I can't figure out how to activate this switch so I can flip it on.
