My Question or Issue

Upon hitting a play icon Spotify will rapidly skip through dozens of songs with no playback. I have removed and reinstalled the program but same issue continues. Plays just fine on my other devices. Clearly a PC issue? Help please. Seems like this is an ongoing issue. Thank you.

Hey there @soggycyclist!


Welcome to the Community and thanks for reaching out to us.


You can start off by trying to disable hardware acceleration:

  1. Click Edit in the menu bar. Select Preferences.
  2. Scroll down and uncheck Hardware acceleration.
  3. Restart Spotify.

If that doesn't solve the issue, we'd recommend performing a clean reinstall with the the steps here.


This is a more thorough process that removes any old files that might be causing trouble.


Another important thing is downloading the app from the Microsoft store instead of our website.
