Windows 7: WMP12 hangs when I choose Close Captions at DVD Playback

23 Sep 2015   #1

WMP12 hangs when I choose Close Captions at DVD Playback

When registering, I filled out a form that asks me about my computer specifications, so I am assuming that you guys already know what they are.

Anyhow, I use WMP 12 to play DVDs and AnyDVD to help Iplay DVDs I buy when travelling. Recently, in England, I just bought a Star Trek: First Contact DVD.

When I put it in my computer, for some reason, I tried to put close captions. I didn't know it was there to begin with, so I tried to see what it was like. Then that's where the bad news starts: the computer hangs. It is not responsive when I move the mouse, it just freezes. I had to try it many times to realise that was the problem. Other than that WMP12 is working fine.

I have no problem against using it despite the problem, but I would like to know why it is like that. Can it be that the Dell hardware is getting old (i.e. it's 10 years old coming 2016), or is it a software problem? There was no blue screen error so I cannot determine what the error type is; I'm sorry.

Also, on occassion, when I try to resize the window, it hangs as well. Again, no blue screen error, just a freeze. The computer/Windows 7 doesn't even have the courtesy to tell me what the error is! :)

If you have the time, please look up where the problem is and I will be very grateful.

P.S., I am glad to be part of the Windows 7 help forums, possibly the best one due to the sheer amount of content. :)

Bye now.

I changed the drivers.

My computer 's graphics capability was embedded on the motherboard, in this case, 82915G.

I went to the Intel website, not the Dell one, and downloaded the version and everything was done like dinner.

Choose Your Desktop Background hangs when loading non-default folders
Greetings, I just noticed that my desktop background slideshow hasn't been working lately, so I went into the personalize menu to fix it (seems to happen to me from time to time, usually an easy fix.) A screen capture of what I see when I go to change the desktop background can be found here:...
Media Player Classic - close file after playback?
I can't figure out how to get MPC to close the file after playback. For instance, if I want to delete or move the file, I can't do it unless I close MPC or select File>Close. From what I read, there's an option in MPC to automatically close the file when playback stops, but I can't find the option....
