    http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/...14-e238-4e45-8668-5166114010ca&displaylang=en

    the link i gave was for earlier versions of the media player lol. The link above is for the latest Microsoft Media Player and has the latest Codecs for the Player.

    I would also recommend downloading the following:
    http://www.videolan.org/vlc/

    This will allow u to play DivX files AND files downloaded that are in HD format though it wont play them in HD unless u have the correct support.


    Hope this all helps

    hi whizzer welcome to the site.
    your LAN and audio drivers are missing.

    Click on the link below and you well get sound drivers for your PC. however to get your network drivers i need the model of your motherboard. you can find this out by opening up the PC and giving us the model number of your mobo.

    if you are using VISTA its the top one of if your using 2000 - XP then the fourth one down.
    Hope this helps :)
