    Does the sound card show up in the Device Manager? If it does does it say that it is working properly? What card is it? You may need to download and reinstall the drivers for the device.

You would have to install a sound driver which you can get from the website of your motherboard company.

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.

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.

Sound problem


you can look in device manager in control panel and look in the hardware list and see if there is any yellow exclamation marks, if so this is probably your sound device not having a driver. If you are sure there is no problem with the driver, then click start>run, then type dxdiag and press enter. Look in the sound tab and click test to see if there is a driver fault.
