Everytime i click on my windows media player a window comes up showing me it's trying to connect and states that windows media player is not working.

The best option here is to reinstall the latest version of windows Media player. link below. Simply download and reinstall the latest version this will overwrite anything already there and restore your WMP to full functionality.

Also make sure you have all Service packs installed and all updates are done too.

Also ensure you have MS .net too..

Hi,my windows7 wmp12 is corrupted and won't open and play videos at all i want to know is it possible to either roll back orf install wmp11 in its place or install an uncorrupted version of wmp12

I'm sorry we got disconnected. yes you can roll back to windows media player eleven. Go to control panel and select and remove programs. when the list comes up scroll down to windows media player 12. Click on remove and it should tell you that it will roll back to the previous version after it is uninstalled. Now, if you recently installed version twelve, you can try something else first. Click on start them programs and select accessories and scroll down to system tools and then select restore. when it opens, select to restore to an earlier time and then when the calendar comes up, select the date you installed version twelve of windows media player, then on the right hand side you will see where your windows media player twelve was installed . Left click on that and they should tell you that it will restore the computer to the time before you installed windows media player twelve . your computer automatically set a restore point when you installed windows media player version twelve. I suggest using the restore option first.

Windows Media Player has stopped working.

Try restoring your system to an earlier date that your media player is working but you must re install programs you have installed from that restore point to the present.

No sound on the PC

Thanks for asking for solution,I would require some additional info.
1. Does windows media player give you an error while playing the file ?
2. Is the problem only in windows media player ? eg, are you getting windows startup sound.

In the meantime try system restore , take the computer back to the date when it was working fine.

ps: do let me know the make of the sound card and which windows operating system you are using

Opening windows media center

i would suggest that you either roll back your driver for the graphics card or do a system restore to a date previous to when the drivers were updated, this wil show in the system restore dates boxes. You are probably running the generic windows driver for your graphics, it's better to see what updates you are installing before updating any hardware drivers.
