Hi,

I've been using Winamp for a month or so now, and I recently installed an Add-On -Winamp Lyrics (Explorer Version) v1.22- which I think is my problem. The Add-On worked after installing it, but when I restarted the computer and started Winamp again, Windows gave me a message saying

"Winamp has stopped working. A problem caused the program to stop working correctly."

I reinstalled Winamp, and Winamp and the Add-On worked fine. Another reboot later, the same problem happened again. I then uninstalled the Add-On via the "Programs and Features" and rebooted again. The same message popped up when I tried to open Winamp.

I've uninstalled Winamp completely, and then reinstalled it, after which Winamp works fine, but the Add-On is still installed and works for one session! Another reboot later, Winamp stops working again. Now I get a "RunDLL" window that says

"Error loading NVCPL.DLL
The specified module could not be found"


I've looked in C:\Windows\System32 and NVCPL.DLL isn't there!

This doesn't seem to affect my use of the computer much, but it's a bit worrying to have to click okay to this error window several times upon startup!
How can I get rid of this problem, and get my music running again?

Thanks for any help!

Welcome to Geeks2Go!

NVCPL.DLL belongs to your display driver, it's the "NVIDIA Control Panel" for configuring display options specific to NVIDIA graphics cards.
Re-installing your NVIDIA display driver & it's software should fix it. It has nothing to do with your Winamp problem that I'm aware of.

if Winamp is constantly giving you problems I would remove it & use some other media player instead.
VLC Media Player can play just about any media file you throw at it without having to install additional codecs:

Thanks! :D

Uninstalled winamp and updated the NVIDIA drivers. It all works fine now!

Just in case anyone else has this problem with Winamp: I think it was one of the plug-ins for Winamp I installed that set this all off. I don't want to test out this theory though!
