Windows 7 codec pack problem

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

I have installed Windows 7 Home Basic 64-bit OS installed on my Asus K42F laptop. Everything is working fine until I upgraded to ultimate through a license key i bought. Since then all of my players (VLC, GOM,WMP) cannot play some of the videos. I installed Windows 7 codec pack but to no avail. What would be the problem? Any idea? Please help me.

Windows 7 codec pack problem


Hi Hink lerbert,

It appears that when you upgraded your Windows 7 Home Basic 64-bit operating system to Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit, some of the codecs have been corrupted or removed. You should try to reinstall VLC player and GOM player at a different directory. That should fix the above issue.

Let me know how it goes.
