Audio problem on my Win XP computer

There is no sound when videos (with audio) play in various players (YouTube, Windows Media, etc.). However individual sound files play
correctly, implying that the sound system is working on the computer.
Another symptom is that the ''Device Volume'' slider in Control Panel/Sounds and Audio Devices is greyed out.

Their is a chance that either the sound device or driver is missing. Reload the sound software. If you don't have it look at the mane and model of you computer or sound card make andf model(mother board it on board sound) and download the drivers nd sofrtware from their website.

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.

Audio & video is not working


You downgrade from Vista to XP right?

Installing your audio drivers on XP:- ***important
You have to install the "Microsoft Universal Audio Architecture (UAA) Bus Driver for High Definition Audio (sp33867)" first, before intalling the audio drivers Conexant CX20549-12 Audio Driver for Microsoft Windows XP (sp41836.exe).

If you reverse the procedure your audio won't work.

Hope it helps.

What is MP3?


MP3 is the prefered method for music downloads.

MP3 is a file format on which music is created for CD downloads which can be played either, on a computer or an MP3 player (like the one on your cell phone.)

Your computer uses pre-installed software called a media player to play the MP3 songs on the CD download. If you have a Windows based PC for example (Windows XP, Vista etc.) when you click on the download - Windows Media Player will open and automatically start playing the songs.

So, you're safe to download the music in MP3 format. It will be of good sound quality.

Hi there
Is this problem with windows media player only or with rest players also.
You try to repair your media player using your XP installation CD and then install a good codec pack such as XP codec pack or K-Lite codec pack.These are available for free .
Hope this works for you.

Waiting for your thanks.

Audio


Hi, Confirm that there is an audio device installed in your PC > right click on My Computer, Properties, Hardware tab, Device Manager button, expand Sound, video and game controllers, It's got to be there, with no yellow or red marks. Also in Start, Control Panel, Sounds and Audio Devices, Audio tab, you should have something in Default device. If none likewise in Device Manager or a yellow or red mark, you have to re-install your drivers by right clicking on the mark and click Update drivers. If they're there with no marks, ensure that they are enabled. Perhaps further assistance maybe made available if you can post brand/model of your PC and/or motherboard. Good luck and kind regards.
