I am a user of ZAI computer. I had to format the compuer due to technical reasons.
Now the windows media player is not working .The media player gives the following message-

"a sound device may not be installed or may be used by another programme or not functioning properly"

I tried the following method to update,
"control panal--add hadware wizard--search-----------inernet----"

But the response was this-

"cannot install this harddware.
The hardware was not installed because the wizard cannot find the necessary software."

please give me necessary advice to solve the problem. I would like to have the software that supports the software of my computer .

These are the informations I found on the motherbord.

Widows freezes, repeats disk check

  1. The computer is freezing though the component parts are designed to withstand motion picture malfunctions known as freezing. Computers with enormous hard disk spaces to contain several user programs are least likely expected to experience freezing conditions. Also, computers with improved graphics, sound media, video hardware components least should experience multimedia malfunctions. Freezing occurrences on computers have several causes discussable.

Usually a functioning computer requires components mentionable as hardware's that are the visible aspects, and software's that may have been installed to take a visual display format. A functioning computer would usually have the software's integrated into the hardware's from the manufactures facility. For example, acquiring a computer from retail would be in functioning mode with every component parts intact as default built for the user. However, once a functioning computer begins to malfunction would be due to either hardware component or software components. The conditions that could make computers freeze are conditional. First, freezing malfunctions are caused by software overloads resulting in a hardware overburdenment. For example, the computer would have been installed with programs at the manufacturer as operating systems that make functionalities possible. Once the computer was turned on prior to the user interactions, what is displayed is the operating systems usually a manufactures default feature. However, the computer is provided with spaces as an expectation for the user to achieve experiences several mentionable. For example, the computer user is provided spaces on computers for productivities purposes mentionable with office or school resources manipulations. A specific amount of space from the manufactcturer was placed to allow for the operating system to be alterted should any occurrences arise. Alterternately, the user interfaces has spaces allocations for manipulations discussable. First, filling up the computers spaces produces least performance either extensively display programs without continuous transition like as before with default functionality. Saving several programs on the available spaces causes freezing due to least spaces for motion to occur For example, the type of media on the computer may actually take extensive spaces. Motion pictures simply require enough computer space to be saved, thereafter displaying like expected else would produce still images also thought as freezing since not every motion is capable of displaying entirely with spaces provided however. Second, a download of a virus may cause the computer to freeze sending a response to the user that the spaces on the computer are full while in fact, the virus was perhaps designed to perform as impediment to usually space accessibility required for the entire computer to display appropriately. So far the explanation has been about the causes of software malfunctions that display results on the screen noticeable as freezing images. Alternately however, the computer may still appear frozen with hardware malfunctions discussable. First, the computer hard disk stores the operating systems programs installed at the manufactures. Once the hard disk programs are damaged either describable as crashes due to physical exposure, impact, or simply out dated, the computer may display remnants programs least achieving user desirable experience. Hard disk conditions includes that the physical wiring to the motherboard have come loose. Inspecting the disk connections to ascertain very component parts are intact would be likely diagnostic for hardware's malfunction also explainable for freezing computers. Several components within the computer once over burdened causes motion sluggishness. For example, the graphics hardware mentionable as memory cards, video cards, or multimedia readers may have become outdate for reasons discussable. First, the computer may have space for several programs. However, installing multimedia programs would require improvements such components as media readers to achieve desired experience.

Dear Sir or Madam When I want to play a music on my computer , I get this error: "Windows Media Player cannot play the file because there is a problem with your sound device. There might not be a sound...

Yes there is something wrong! The sound card driver is corrupted!

YOu need to check on device manager again. Look for your drivers there.

If you do not see the EXACT NAME of your sound card, then the driver that is installed is a DEFAULT driver made by the os.

Ex: This is a sound card driver name listed in Device manager:

This is an example of a default sound card driver that will not work well on certain sounds or will not work at all:


Even thought you many not see a yellow question mark (which you should be checking for too just in case)on any of the listings for your hardware, chances are you are still using a default sound card driver due to a corruption to its original sound card driver.

So recheck your device manager and find out the exact name of your original sound card. If there is no match to your exact name of your sound card, then you need to REINSTALL your sound card driver again and you will immediatly see your sound card working again :)

If this does not work, you may have to change your sound card.

Hope this helps :)
