Windows Media Player lags on Windows 7

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

Hello,

I am facing a new problem with Windows Media Player from a few days. It lags while playing MP3 audio files, although the lag is tolerable as it happens at the beginning of the song but plays smoothly after sometimes. But, when I try to play AVI files, Windows Media Player starts lagging every 2-3 seconds. I tried re-installing  a fresh copy of Windows 7 but the problem still persists. How can I fix this problem?

Thanks,

Tazwar

Do you have other media player aside from Windows Media Player? If so, remove it and then set the WMP to be the default media player. Just check on options for the file association. Next is to defrag your hard disk drive so all your files are not scattered on your computer. and then check if the problem has been resolved. If the problem still persist, try to use another media player for playing videos or update to the most recent version of WMP from the link below:
