Windows Media Player cannot play the file because there is a problem with your sound device. There may not be a sound device installed on your computer, it may be in use by another program, or it may not...


hi, here are some solution plz try them all..

1. Have you tried updating the sound card drivers to their latest version?
Don't just check Windows Update, but the card manufacturer's website as
well.

2. Here is a simple quick fix!!!!!!

Open the Media Player

At the top, Click on "Tools"

Select "Options"

Click on the "Devices" tab

In the list of devices, double-click on "Speakers"

Under 'audio device to use' it probably lists your sound card ...THIS IS WRONG!!! !using the selector button on the right side of the window, change this
setting to:
"Default Directsound Device" (Note that "Directsound" will show as one
word).

This problem happens because MS never should have allowed this setting
to be changed ... it's senseless.

3. Click Start, then Run. Type dxdiag, then click OK. Choose the sound tab. You should see your device and driver there and you can even test the sound. If there is no device or driver, just install it and check it with dxdiag again.

Hope that helps,
Regards,

Creative sound card! no sound!


Check whether you plugged in the speaker wire into the correct jack at the back of the computer (it should go into the green colored jack on the sound card).

Did you try playing a sound file? Does media player show the file as playing, but you can't hear anything? Or do you get any error? if there's any error, please mention the error.

If the sound plays but you can't hear anything, again, check the speakers are connected to the correct sound jack. Next, try connecting a pair of headphones or earphones (lower the volume before playing any sound  or music file).

If you still can't hear anything, click Start and type the command "dxdiag" in the Run box and then press the Enter key. In the dxdiag window, click the Sound tab. Check the Notes box, if it gives any error info. If your card is working, it should say 'No problems found." You can also test the sound using the "Test Directsound" button.

If you still can't hear any sound, you should check and reinstall your sound card driver manually after removing it first.

There may be other problems. For more information, check this nice blog post about sound problems.

Hope that helps.

Sound is nt coming from speakers?


Do you have two sound cards in your computer now or have you removed or disabled the old sond card?

FYI, looks like in the media player you havent selected the right sound output.

Try this,
1. In Windows Media Payer, Menu bar-> Tools -> Plug-ins -> Options.

2. Go to Device tab and click on Speakers ad the click Proprties button below.

3. Click Advanced

4. Select your new hadrware.(Creative Aspire 5.1)

5. Click Set as default.

6. Click OK, OK OK...

Then restart Windos media player and try again.

-------------
Another thought, make sure you have pluged the jacks right and you speakers are working right.

Good Luck!!!

Whenever i go to play my windows media player, it doesnot play.It shows message sound device not install.Please install sound device.Please advice how can i install the sound device.


Do you have the cd that came with your computer? If so then try this:
1. Go to Control Panel/System/device manager
2. Look for the sound, video and game controllers. Click on the device (if any) and then right click and choose properties. In Device Status, does it say operating normally? If not, then go back to where y ou click on the device and right click again, choosing uninstall.
3. At the top of the window choose Action/Scan for Hardware Changes. It should locate your sound chip. Then follow the prompts. If it can't find the driver already on your computer, then get the Cd that came with your PC and follow the prompts to install the sound driver from there. Hopefully this will solve your problem.

Note:

If this post does not help please include the Gateway model of your pc... it is much easier to look for a driver if you can provide me with the model...

you may need to access the computer's manufacturer website to download the sound drivers. another way you could try is to click Start > Run > type devmgmt.msc and hit <Enter> to open device manager

go to the Sound section and expand it --- then highlight the device and right click and then select Update Driver.

Sound device


Hi,

If your sound device is removable, like PCI Card, try to remove the PCI Card and clean the connector with dry brush, then place it firmly back again.

If your sound device built-in on your motherboard, please re-install the Device driver provided by the Motherbard Driver CD.

SONAR LE NO AUDIO


Microsoft re-engineered the audio bus for Windows. HD Audio is hardware specific, in the sense that specific drivers have to be written to make a piece of hardware compatible with it. Roland is not writing a driver for the UA 25 because they want you to buy an UA 25EX. Get my drift? The UA 25 uses Kernel Streaming, the old way, which exists in parallel, sort of, with the HD Audio bus. But the new ways are always prioritized over the old ways in software, so there is bus contention (glitching).

To fix this there are a few things you can try:

1) Roll back to SP2. SP3 implements the HD Audio bus, so don't use that implementation. If your laptop has an HD audio sound card then I doubt it would work, but your UA 25 would.

2) Try ASIO 4 ALL. This fixed everything but glitching in VST instruments.

3) Reduce the amount of stuff your computer is doing. Optimize your OS by turning off the cute shaded windows and desktops and various processes that you don't need to see or use. There are sites for this. This increases available RAM, CPU time, etc.

4) Video hardware acceleration, sometimes, would fix bugs in software left in by not so clever programmers.

4) You can always just give-up and go along with the bastards and buy new stuff and toss the old stuff.
