Sound not synchronised with gideo

This is very annoying - on my laptop if I watch video files the sound does not sync with the video properly. There is a slight lag. Any ideas how to sort it out?

I have a dell xps laptop and windows 7

May be lack of memory, how much RAM have you got?

Try right clicking the speaker icon and select playback devices.Right click the speaker icon in the pane that opens and select properties again. Select the advanced tab and select the sample rate to one lower to the one showing. Check both boxes are also ticked for exclusive mode. Click apply and OK.

Thanks rdave13. Have made the change. Will monitor with future videos to see if that helps.
