    Hi there.

    The video/audio codecs on my laptop are screwed (audio is jerky when playing back dvd's).
    Anyone know the easiest way to clearout/refresh the codecs?

    Im good with computers and not bad with AV, but just dont have any experience with AV on a PC.

    Thanks.

    no joy. still does the same thing. Its as though the video is playing too fast and the 'poping is cause as the sound tries to catch up'

    Have tried removing all the codecs from the sound/hardware CP but still no joy...

    have tried playing disks via Media Player, Power DVD, Realplayer, all of them the same....

    any advice appreciated.

    ok, think I've got it sorted.

    Managed to manually remove all the codecs and then reinstalled them and hey presto. I think it was one of the DivX codecs that was screwing things up.
