This can often be resolved by reinstalling the sound drivers, which may have been corrupted by some application. The drivers can usually be found in a directory on the disk drive somewhere, on restore CD's that may have been supplied with the computer, or by downloading from the manufacturer's website. It's best to get the drivers from the website, since you will get the latest version the manufacturer offers. They may have updated the software to take care of problems. You can also get full details about installation at their site, but it's usually a matter of downloading the driver package and running it.

It's also possible the application you are using to play music isn't working properly with your sound device. Try downloading an updated version if one is available.

A final possibility is that the sound circuitry itself has gone bad. It's not likely, though, and if other WIndows sounds are normal, the hardware probably just fine.

If this solution has given you what you needed, please take a moment to rate it. Thanks for asking here!

AS you state the "device is working properly" so it must be something else.
Try playing a music CD and if the music looks as if it is playing, it probably is and there is a mechanical problem with the headphone socket or the volume is not activated.
Check the Mixer Console by r/hand mouse click the loudspeaker icon and select Volume mixer.
Hope that fixes it

Gateway laptop skips


Make certain it is the correct media for the drive. If it is CDR or CDRW media, make sure it is rated for the write speed of the drive. High Speed media for a High Speed drive is labeled with the High Speed logo. If you are testing with an audio CD, play it in your home stereo first to make sure the disc works.

Check also the disc if it has scratches that's why it skips when played. Try a known good CD.

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
