Hi Kim,
Don't quite understand the end of your message but...

Have look at settings-control panel - system - hardware - device manager - audio. If you see a yellow ! against one of the audio drivers then either remove it and re-install the driver or try to update. If you have a yellow ! then the sound will never work.

Also if you go to start - help and support - enter "sound " in the search field you will be offered a few suggestions as to the cause of your problem.

Hi i have a western digital home edition 2 tb hard drive that now when i play an avi movie file i get sound and no picture or picture and no sound also these files play fine on windows media player so now...


> these files play fine on Windows Media Player

Then, continue to use Windows Media Player.

Or, tell us what alternative program that you use that gives "sound-and-no-picture" or "picture-and-no-sound".
What version of that program?
Windows XP? Vista? 7?
Any more "possibly-relevant" details ?

I can't get sound when playing a CD. Sound works when I start on my lap top. Mute has shown some- times whe I play CD. Need to get sound when playing CD's. Went to Control panel but no answers. Please...


There are a few things you can try here. You say sound works when you start your laptop, can you play sound off the Internet, for instance a news clip or youtube video? If so, the problem may be with the media player you are using. There should be a volume control on your media player, in addition to the Windows volume control. You might want to try using a different media player, like musicmatch jukebox or Winamp.

Music wont play through media player due to installing web cam


Hello my friend, i had encounter same problem as you have when i on one of my client's computer. You can reinstall the driver of your sound card. When you installed the program driver of your cam the sound card is affected due to some factor either the sound card is currupted. So my solution are the following: 1. Go to my computer icon then right click it the click properties. Then go to Tab name Hardware then click device manger then check if the sound driver is not installed or it is being corrupt. Then proceed to the reinstallation of your sound card driver. But if the sound card driver is installed then reinstall you windows media player. If you don't have installer then try this link: http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/player/10/default.aspx 2. Donwload Windows media player codec and update the codec of your Windows Media Player. try this link: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=06fcaab7-dcc9-466b-b0c4-04db144bb601&displaylang=en
Hope this help fix your problem. If you need more help just contact me or reply to this post. Thanks
