    WMP 11 in Vista Ultimate (32bit OEM version) won't play anything
    correctly. It will playback video incredibly slow with no audio and
    audio files will have no audio. The format doesn't seem to matter-these
    are WMV and WMP files as well as mpg files and standard audio
    files...anyone else seeing this? All of the online help seems to be
    aimed at codec issues but that's not the problem. I'm running a Pent
    Core 2 DUO 6600 with 4GB of PC 6400 and a top notch mobo...I tried
    dumbing down performance to "best performance" in Vista advanced
    settings but nothing changes it...

  2. Are the correct driers installed for your motherboard chipset, your
    video card, and your sound card?

    Yes...I updated all of the drivers when I went from XP Pro to Vista
    Ultimate a few weeks back. The strange thing is this only happens in
    WMP 11. Anytime another player ( or web based player) is used..all is
    well....the worst offenders are the Windows based formats....
