I work on lenovo pc desktop 3000 h series. Day today when I try to play any song in media player then one massage shows that is below:

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

The sound card in this cpu is not working properly. And I don't have cd of this software.
Please help me as soon as posible.

Is this a sound problem with Windows Media Player 9? If so, I found a thread online which should be of some help. The solution from that site is as follows:
"One thing comes to mind. Open WMP, go to Tools, Options, Devices and wait till the window populates. Then highlight Speakers and click the Properties button.
Where it says, "Audio Device to Use", try changing to "Default Direct Sound Device". If that is already chosen, choose your soundcard from the dropdown list."

Threre must be a problem with your device driver you can reinstall device driver from the cd provided by your motherboard company or note the name of driver and search internet and download and install it.There may be a chance that your device may get burned or busted solve it by buy new sound card.

Sound card wont play root media files

Hi Hughdog
well, Biostar mobos are know for a lot issues, but depending too, on the OS, windows XP I presume, go on safe mode, and uninstall all audio drivers, and disable on the BIOS audio. then start the PC, and install the audio card. or if is a internal audio reenable again, redetec the drivers, and install them according to the CD and drivers. you should see the play device now and play music correctly.
good luck
