Re: I use Windows XP Prof. No Audio Output No windows...

Hi :-). You'll have to bear with me as I'm not sure how much experience You currently have with using Windows XP, so If explain things to easy, or things you already know & have tried I Apologize in Advance :). Ok I Am Taking A Very Very Big Guess here, but I reckon it could be either Your Sound Card Drivers have dissapeared somewhere. Or You have Some Broken Audio Codecs that need Re-Installing.

Try Running the Windows System Restore Tool, back to a time where the sound card was working. For Example if it stopped working on October 24th 2007 @ 6pm  Try and Select a Restore Date as Close to that Time & Date if Possible, otherwise you may loose any files you downloaded prior to your Sound Card Failing Unneccessarily.

Did that Work For You?

If Not post a reply and I'll check back through out the day and give you some more things to try :).

When i want download a video a message comes that unsupported content.

You need to specify yourOS(*Operating System) in order to solve this kind of problem, but any way isuggest you to to install VLC media player.lnk, because some of our OSdoesn't support the file extension of the video that you are trying to download. Using the WindowsMedia Player plugin with Firefox Toplay Windows Media in Firefox, you need the Windows Media Player browser plugininstalled. There are two different versions:
  • The original, which is usually included with Windows up until XP.
  • The new version, specifically developed for Windows XP and above, which is only available by download.
Thisarticle describes how to check for and install the Windows Media Player Firefoxplugin in Windows XP and above. Many Windows XP users will have the old pluginalready, but it is recommended that you install the new plugin, anyway. Note: Even if you already have Windows Media Playerinstalled, you may still be missing the plugin required to play back WindowsMedia audio and video embedded in Web Pages.

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 @ will play most of the video/audio formats.

Hope it helps.

What would cause Windows Media Player 11 to NOT display? It shows up in the taskbar, and audio is heard but it will not come up on the screen. No new programs have been loaded and I have done a complete...

This may happen as a result of having made a screen resolution change, especially from a large resolution to a smaller one. Other times, it's a glitch in the programming, though I haven't witnessed one in XP, Vista or better. Try switching to the highest resolution possible and set it. If you now see the Media Player window display, reduce its size to about half, and then reset the resolution to what it was before. Then close the Media player window and restart. It should open to the same exact size as the last time you used it.
Good luck!

Window problem

You should reinstall it. It's not really a good idea to attempt to repair anyway.
