Also, if I want to open the Volume Control, it displays the folloing msg:
There are no active mixer devices available.
Please solve my problem.

Media engine error! DRM License


These songs must have been purchased online. Itunes, or many online MP3 stores do this to prevent piracy. The songs can only be played on the PC that purchased them. Either buy the music from a DRM free site or find a DRM ripper, which maybe illegal in some locations.

Sound is muted


Could you please check the following for me.
1) Open windows media player and attempt to play a song, does windows media player bring up an error message or does it just play without sound?
2) Go to your control panel and click on sound, make sure nothing is muted.
3) In sounds again, look for a list of usable devices, if there is more than one, try each and until you get some kind of sound.

If Windows media player gave you an error message try updating your drivers with the links provided.

Windows XP
For XP you may need to download two things, the drivers on this page and Microsoft Universal Audio Architecture.

If you are able to hear sound while starting PC issue is not with sound card. that is installed and working properly. If you are clicking on any file that is not playing then window media player is not supporting that file. If you are directly opening window media player from start>>Program>>access>>>>window player and it is giving error. It mean that your player is corrupted. You can upgrade that with higher version of player by going this link. www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/9series/player.aspx
