  1. my sound and video aren't synchronized; the sound plays on videos and the video lags, flowing inconsistently, a few seconds behind.

    video acceleration is on full and i have run what troubleshooters i can find on windows.

    specs please. what type of video?
    graphics card may not be catching up. update drivers and directx, clean out the dust in the case and make sure you got adequate power runing and cooling to it.
    try running with minimal proceses/programs running
    thats the general answer.. once we know your specs we can go deeper.

    You also might want to try scaling back video acceleration, as it could be causing problems, although it is uncommon in this day and age.

    We need specs.

    this is principally concerning .avi files (though some other similar files like .mpg and .wmv) used in windows media player. i am on xp pro, and my graphics card is an s3 prosavageddr.

    decreasing the acceleration makes it worse.

    concerning drivers and directx, they are updated as far as i know.

    can you by any chance tell us your full system specs?

    cpu type/speed,
    motherboard make/model
    sound card
    any mods (overclocks etc)
    hdd, drives..
    psu make/watts..
    ram etc etc..

    it will help try to determine what is wrong if we can see what you have in whole.. =)

    also just to eliminate other things that may/may not be part of the problem, i want you to do run: chkdsk /f and defrag, also scans for teh 4 baddies (virus, mal/spy/adware)

    have you also checked what other processes you have running in the background while you're running teh videos? you can use taskmanager to see this in the processes tab.

    that would require alot of registry edits and other messy stuff, first depending if its legal to do with that program, and i think you posted this question in the wrong place
