Re: no sound on the PC
Go to the manufacturer of the pc and/or the soundcard, download the soundcard driver.
Goto the control panel - system - hardware - device
Look for any devices that have a red or yellow mark next to it. Uninstall the device and reboot. When the system detects the device, load the driver U downloaded. If U have more than one device with a red or yellow mark, download the drivers for those devices and repeat the above.
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Try uninstalling and reinstalling the CDROM driver via the device manager.
Right Click on Computer. Click on Manage. Go to Device Manager.
Right Click on the CDRom driver. Uninstall. Restart the computer so that windows will generate the driver. Update it. You can either go to the website of the computer's manufacturer to get the updated version of the driver or do it automatically by using RadarSync.
First of all trying turning the computer off then back on. If this does not fix it go to Start. Type in the box Device Manager. Click on Device Manager in the list. Go to: Sound, video and game controllers. RIGHT click on the sound system such as: High Definition Audio Device and then click on Update driver software. Make sure to click on: "Search automatically for updated driver software."
Try going to the device manager: start>control panel>hardware and sound>device manager. Look for mouse/pointing devices tab and expand to show HID compliant mouse, right click on it and choose update driver, then click search automatically for updated driver software.
On your Skype menu go to "Tools" at the top of your menu. Select "Options" and then select "Audio Settings". There is a drop down menu for "Microphone". Try selecting each option until you see the "Volume Bar" start indicating that your mic is working.
You need to update your sound drivers,to do this go to start menu on your computer and type in the word "device manager",select it from a list of options and click on it you will see a list of components/devices that are working with your computer select the "sound" component.
Click on it and you will see your sound driver,right click the sound driver and you will see a list of options select "update driver software" this automatically search for updates,download them and install it in your computer.
You will have to restart your system for the update to work properly.
If you have the cd for the motherboard, you can install the driver for your sound. Look in device manager under sound video and game controllers, and find your sound card. I had the same problem when I put in a new hard drive, I didnt have any sound so I had to install the driver from the cd. If you don't have the cd, you can always find the driver on the web. a good site to check is www.driver.com
Thanks for asking for solution,I would require some additional info.
1. Does windows media player give you an error while playing the file ?
2. Is the problem only in windows media player ? eg, are you getting windows startup sound.
In the meantime try system restore , take the computer back to the date when it was working fine.
ps: do let me know the make of the sound card and which windows operating system you are using
