You might encounter this error message for one of the following reasons:
  • Your sound device is in use by another program. Quit other programs that might be using your sound device, and then try to play the file again.
  • Your sound device requires an updated driver. To determine if an updated driver is available, see Windows Update, or see the sound device manufacturer's Web site.
  • The selected sound device does not support Secure Audio Path (SAP). If you have multiple sound devices installed on your computer, try using a different one.
  • Your sound device is not functioning properly. To troubleshoot the problem, see Windows Help and Support or refer to your sound device's documentation.
  • You do not have a sound device installed on your computer. Install a sound device (such as a sound card), and then try to play the file again. If you can't install a sound device in your computer, you might be able to resolve the problem by attaching USB-based headphones or USB-based speakers to your computer instead.

Whenever i go to play my windows media player, it doesnot play.It shows message sound device not install.Please install sound device.Please advice how can i install the sound device.


Do you have the cd that came with your computer? If so then try this:
1. Go to Control Panel/System/device manager
2. Look for the sound, video and game controllers. Click on the device (if any) and then right click and choose properties. In Device Status, does it say operating normally? If not, then go back to where y ou click on the device and right click again, choosing uninstall.
3. At the top of the window choose Action/Scan for Hardware Changes. It should locate your sound chip. Then follow the prompts. If it can't find the driver already on your computer, then get the Cd that came with your PC and follow the prompts to install the sound driver from there. Hopefully this will solve your problem.

Sound Card


you may need to access the computer's manufacturer website to download the sound drivers. another way you could try is to click Start > Run > type devmgmt.msc and hit <Enter> to open device manager

go to the Sound section and expand it --- then highlight the device and right click and then select Update Driver.

No sound device


What is your motherboard type and model? If you purchased your computer a brand new unit,a CD installerforit device drivers shouldcome with it. If you have that Device driver installer CD,try installing from the CD device installer that came with your new PC.

Sound driver


Sorry pal. Machine is a DELL Inspiron 1721. No cable neither loudspeakers. I have no motherboard CD shipped with laptop. I already tried to install audio drivers from DELL Utilities & Drivers CD, but OS refuses to recognize that a soundcard is present.

Thanks anyway. It has to be solved by someone who's had the same problem and managed to work around it.

you have to download the sound drivers and install the software..can't give you the exact driver as haven't specified much about your PC.
still try to download one of the common driver like realtek- Ac97... from the following URL ..
http://www.realtek.com.tw/downloads/downloadsView.aspx?Langid=1&PNid=14&PFid=23&Level=4&Conn=3&DownTypeID=3&GetDown=false


or try to download other audio drivers and install it...your problem would be fixed.

hope to get rated as fixed...
