Go to control panel... system... device manager and check that there isnt any ! in the audio devices. If you do find one then you need to install the drivers to your sound card.

When I use Winamp, it does not play and instead shows Bad sound drive error


Check it if it works with Windows Media Player. Install the latest sound driver from the manufacturer's website. Some motherboards' sound drivers refuse to work. I think your PC is assembled.

Besides Windows Media Player - is there any other media player or jukebox that will work properly on XP Prof??


There are many Media Player like, VLC, MPCSTAR, WinAmp that is WinXP compatible.

You can also install the codec eg. K-Lite Codec Pack or K-Lite Mega Codec Pack @ http://www.free-codecs.com/index.htmwhich will play most of the video/audio formats.


Hope it helps.

Winamp or Media Player


Winamp is much better at sound quality, in my opinion, than windows media just because you are able to control the equalizer and sound effects. Windows media player does not allow for this. Not to mention, winamp takes up less memory while running, which makes the playback flawless.

No hear the sound in ACER 4520


First you just play the songs in VLC player.If sounds comes then ok,otherwise cheack below that i have written......

I think either the (XP)sound drivers doesn't match or the problem in your sound device. So it's better to go to the nearest service station and cheak your laptop. If it is OK then, search for proper sound drivers from them or in google.

I have a toshiba A205-S4617 Laptop which had Vista Home Premium . Now i have downgraded it to XP pro sp2 but i am getting some Audio problems. The music and movis playing at half the speed ...it sounds...


OK ! As far as I can tell, (hopefully) you have installed corrupted audio drivers for the laptop. Its an issue that I have come accross 1 month ago. I fixed it by doing the following...

Installing the latest audio drivers for the downgrade of XP.
Installing the latest audio/video codecs for Windows XP.
Installing the latest Direct X redistribute
Uninstalling the windows update:MSWindowsHighDefinitionAudio

These three (Audio/Video Codecs, Audio Drivers and Direct X) are responsible for "decoding" your Movies and Music. If they are outdated or their host application is corrupt, they can cause sum grief to your multimedia.

Also, a very rare issue could be that you're selected (If you are using Windows Media Player 9-11) the speed settings. It could be that the speed settings are set to low. To troubleshoot this, simply download and install 3party apps like WINAMP (for audio) and VLC / VLan Player (for Video) and open your music or video with either one of the mentioned apps...

Unable to play Audio after Video Capture


I happen to have this setup... you need to set the audio source (the usb camera connection.) It is possible to hook up via the sound card, but that could be stressful for some.
