Any suggestions how to get this working or will i need to get a new soundcard? give me sound driver of ibm think pad R50

I have replaced my hard drive with a SSD. The computer is working perfect except that it now refuses to play any of the audio files that it used to play.A message comes up saying the file format is no


It sounds like your sound drivers are not installed or corrupted. Does it play any sound at all? For example the windows startup sound. Look in device manager and see if your sound device is working properly. There maybe more than 1 device. If so then go to your sound properties (right click speaker icon on taskbar) and see if there is another device you can use to play sound and make that one your default choice. If this doesn't work then look for updated sound drivers for your particular device. Hope you get it working.

I have this message apprear on my laptop when i try and play sound "Windows Media Player cannot play the file because there is a problem with your sound device. There might not be a sound device...


try playing the sound file with other media players, if still not playing reinstall ur audio driver either by dowloading the driver from internet or by installing it from ur driver cd.
if ur audio device driver is integrated or plug n play device then,
step 1:open control panel
step 2:open 'sound speech and audio devices'
step 3: in the property menu of audio devices select drivers from the tab
step 4:select uninstall driver.
step 5: restart ur computer and the audio device will be reinstalled.
if it is the problem with ur windows media player, then step 1:select option/preferences from the menu.
step 2:select devices from the tab.
step 3:test all the devices by selecting each one at a time to play ur sound file.

No audio file will play on WMP, no dvd or audio disk will play...


Windows Media Player cannot play several files in the playlist. This might be caused by one or more problems.
To find information about the specific problems, click the Now Playing tab, and then click the blue or red icon next to each file in the List pane.
In some cases, you might encounter this error message if there is a problem with your sound device, such as a sound card or sound controller. For example:
  • 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.
  • 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, and then try to play the file again
