  1. Hey there, Let me try to get to the point here.

    First, I'm a noob, so I'm not that keen on scripts or what not.

    Second, my CPU is as folllows:

    mobo: D915GAG
    Windows Vista Home Basic
    Soundcard : Realtek ALC860
    Display Adapter # 1:Intel(R) 82915G/GV/910GL Express Chipset Family (Microsoft Corporation - XDDM)
    Display Adapter #2:RADEON 9250 (Microsoft Corporation - XDDM)
    Network Adapter:Intel(R) PRO/100 VE Network Connection

    Webrowser Aplications: Internet Explorer 7 Beta 2, Firefox Beta
    Firewall settings are "open", and is on "not recomended" settings.
    Reinstalled Realplayer, Windows Media Player 11, and Quicktime

    Third, I Know have the most update versions of Realplayer, Windows Media Player, and Quicktime Player. I went to all the settings to check it out. So, please I know I have "updated" versions.

    Fourth, My fierce issue her is that I am not, as you can notice by my title ,cannot view any video straeming on ANY websites. When I visit sites, it comes up with either an x in a little box(for audio streaming). Or when I visit FOXNews Sites, I click on the video and nothing happens(no pop up, etc.), I click properties, and it it shows that its an IMG. file. <------my biggest issue. No Video recognition. I believe part of the problem is that My OS does not recognise Windwos Media Player, RealPlayer, etc.WHY?

    As you can see by my discription, I havea all updates, and I updated my "Windows Update". Settings too.

    Any ideas? Any concerns? I have already contacted my manufacturers website, and they could not figure ou the issue. And only Sending my to: - and of no use.

    Please once again, any help would be plausable, I would like to see video, PS:, I went to youtube, and everything is FINE. My OS does not recognise any Realplayer, Windows Media Player 11. etc.

    Thanks, A lil boy in dire help. Alejandro(Alex)
