My windows media player is acting odd. I was ripping a CD and the media player rips all the tracks but the first one. Then it says my media player is no longer responding. When I shut down the computer for the first time as it powered back up It displayed a message about a malfunctioning fan. The message hasn't been displayed again after rebooting and trying to recreate this issue. I just purchased this computer in February from Wal-Mart and my warranty is still valid until next February.

Assuming you are running a version of Windows 7, it may be worth trying to reset Windows Media Player as follows.
Click the Start Menu and select Control Panel. Open Programs and Features, Click 'Turn Windows features on or off', open up Media Features and untick Windows Media Player. Click Yes then OK and then restart the notebook.
When Windows has restarted, click the Start Menu and select Control Panel. Open Programs and Features, Click 'Turn Windows features on or off', open up Media Features and tick Windows Media Player. Click Yes then OK and when WMP has finished installing, restart the notebook again.

I just bought a Pavilion dv6 and experienced the same buzzing sound which occurred during music and/or video playback. Pretty sure that I isolated it to Windows Media Player since iTunes played music without the intermittent buzz, skip, jump in audio.
This fix of disabling then re-enabling Windows Media Player seems to have worked for me but I've only tried it on one mp3 music file so far.
