My computer crashed badly recently and i had to reinstall windows.. so i decided to move up from win xp sp1 to sp2...
Only problem is i got a big problem with certain folders..
I did not do a clean format of the HDD as i dint want to lose any information and hence out of the three partitions in my hard disk.. I only formatted and installed windows in my usual c:\.
Everything works fine but for two problems:
1) the first, is that i cant seem to hear any sound.. when i play music... It seems to play but nothing comes from my speakers.. All my drivers are signed and win xp compatabile (Using a NF7s2 motherboard -onboard Nvidia Nforce2 soundcard).. But the sound issue is not so much my concern since i have yet to open up my computer and check and see if any of the wiring came loose..
2) My second and primary concern, is that i cant seem to open any folder with large media fles (avi, ogg, etc)... Everytime i try to open a folder containing large quantities of media files i get a polite message "Windows Explorer has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience"..
If i ignore the message and try to open another sub-folder, the sub-folder will open up along with the message "Explorer. exe Application error: The instruction at "0x00000000" referenced memory at "0x00000000". The memory could not be "read"
I thought this had something to do with the lack of Virtual Ram so i increased the page file on each drive.. minimum of 2 mb and max of 1600mb on each... Still doesnt work for me..
Funnily enough, i can open all the media files, if i ignore the first warning and the Application error... but that doesnt really matter though since i cant hear the sound anyway...
PLEASE Help me out people !! Thanks alot.
