Default What SHOULD i have....

Hello all.
I was wondering if there are certain Audio/Video codecs that are a must have in order to have a machine that works properly.
I recently changed my hard drive, now all the software that comes preinstalled from the factory (which I would imagine includes various codecs) etc has gone.
I am no computer genius and I appologise if I have asked a stupid question but I sometimes get various messages saying things like Windows media player can't play this file because the correct codecs are missing or something like that....and I recently connected my miniDV handycam and although the picture was ok the sound was terrible and very quiet.
I just wonder if i should have certain CODECS or whatever that I just don't have.
Thankyou for your time
The Nube
