Goto www.lavalys.com & download the free trial version of Everest. This software allows you to scan & diagnose the exact system details, motherboard/chipset etc..With this info you can then search for the exact items that are needed. In this case the soundcard/chipset driver, then google for the driver or goto www.driverguide.com & search there.Hope that helps

0xC00D11BA: Cannot play the file


Hi,
Your sound device is in use by another program. Quit other programs that may be using your sound device, and then try to play the file again.
Your sound device is not functioning properly. To troubleshoot the problem, see the Sound Troubleshooter in Windows Help 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.


Thanks

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.

I just formatted my computer and now i cant play a music file


You will need to reinstall the driver software for your soundcard. Go to the website for your computer manufacturer and search for your model computer and download and install the audio drivers.

Example sites:

Waves not playing yet mp3s do.


Nopes. What seems to be was a suspended application installation (probably you or somebody qho used your computer just before it happenned). You can try System Restore. It should roll back that kind of file extension change. Hope it helps, good luck.
Solution #2: You can do as well if the system restore does not work to reasign the software that is going to open that file extension (so far I know the change has been made to MP3, WAV, MIDI.). That you can do it by opening my computer, then go to "TOOLS", inside of it go to "FOLDER OPTIONS", then choose the tab "FILE TYPES". There, scroll down until you see the extension "MP3" and place your mouse arrow on it. Now below it you are going to see two choices that you can click on, click on "CHANGE" and choose your favorite program. Again, I hope it helps...

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
