Hello, my computer stopped allowing me to play audio files on Windows Media Player and itunes. The following message was displayed on itunes: itunes has detected a problem with your audio configuration. audio/video playback may not operate properly. Also the following message was displayed on WMP: 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.

Can someone please help this is really fustrating

I went to my audio device manager and notice that there wasn't any device listed. I chose my sound card and closed itunes. I then opened it up and it worked! Try that first!

Hello,

First try System Restore to the latest point where ur sound card was working nice. http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/using/setup/support/sysrestore.mspx

If it doesn't match u'll have to re-install ur sound card.
