Check your sound card driver. Go to My Computer (right click)--> Properties---> Hardware Tab----> Device Manager---> Sound and Video game Controller... see if it has yellow Question mark... it means your driver is not properly installed.... Right Click the yellow question mark and Update the Driver and insert your CD Installion Driver from Manufacturer.. and restart your PC if prompted to reboot..otherwise just restart if you finish updating the driver.

If you installed the XP yourself, as an upgrade, then the old sound drivers are still functioning.
you may have to delete the drivers and go to the microsoft site to download the drivers as I had to do.

www.microsoft.com to the right of the screen --in the smaller window, under all Microsoft Sites, click on downloads and trials then when the little windows show up, click on windows media player.
Install this and the drivers will installwith that program. and you should have sound. then select the VERSIOn windos you have ex;(windows XP)

When i play music or DVD on my windows media player there is no audio sound?


Open Control Panel - Sound and Audio devices - check the sound volume, move to high if required and Mute is not selected.
Next click on Sound tab and select a Windows and click on the play button, if the play button is greyed out then the audio driver is either not installed or not working. In this case install your model audio driver.

Your sound card might be in use by another application.

0xC00D11BA: Cannot play the file
Windows Media Player cannot play the file because there is a problem with
your sound device, such as a sound card or sound controller. You may
encounter this error message for one of the following reasons:

Your sound device is in use by another program. Quit other programs that may
be using your sound device, and then try to play the file again.
Your sound device is not functioning properly. To troubleshoot the problem,
see the Sound Troubleshooter in Windows Help or refer to your sound device's
documentation.
You do not have a sound device installed on your computer. Install a sound
device, and then try to play the file again.
