Windows 8 won't play media???

Well Windows 8 apps like Music, Video, Media Player, Photo Gallery, Photo Viewer, Movie Maker and 3rd party VLC media player all DO NOT WORK on my machine. I start up the app then within seconds the app just closes saying it had to shutdown.

Machine: Dell Inspiron M5040 AMD E-450 clocked 1.6Ghz (sometimes overclocked) with HD Radeon6230 integrated graphics 4GB of DDR3 RAM 500GB 5,200RPM HDD 1366x768 display Thanks for any help!! :P Any formatting issues it is because IE10 and lack of support by The Verge :(
