I'm having a problem getting sound on my computer. I've never had this problem until recently. I tried playing some music saved on my computer and here's the error message I get:

Windows Media Player cannot play the file because there is a problem with your sound device. There might not be a sound device installed on your computer, it might be in use by another program, or it might not be functioning properly.

I don't understand what may have happened. I haven't installed or changed anything on it recently, so what gives??

Pleassse Help!

Thank you

hi there,

rigt click on desktop


device manager

if the driver is missing you will get it in a yellow

triangle then use your driver cd and install it

Thanks for responding. Here's what happened. When I right clicked on my desktop and clicked on properties, it brought of display properties. I didnt see anything about device manager. Also, I no longer have the disc to reinstall the driver.

So, what now? :(
