I have a Windows XP sound device driver installed but no sound plays from my laptop at all. If I go onto Windows Media Player, a warning pops up saying:

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

When I go to properties, it says:

Legacy Audio Drivers
Device Type - Sound, video and game controllers
Manufacturer - (Standard system devices)
Location - Unknown.

It also says that it is working properly and does not need to be updated.

Please help!

System Configuration: Windows XP Internet Explorer 7.0

If this is a new computer - take it back and get them to fix it.
Otherwise, you need to download an audio driver - you can find it here:
