Hi,
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

Thanks
mandeep

Do you know what type of your motherboard..if you know, then you can googling(google) your driver..if you dont know, then you can try update using device manager.

I'm very sure when you view device manager, your adapater will have problem with driver..

Picture show device manager that have problem
(actually, i think your device manager also like this)

You see question mark icon (?) here with yellow?

that mean driver wasn't compatible with that device or it still don't have driver for that.

Solution?
Right click at that icon, properties
then,window will pop up
find driver tab
and update..
it will need more time and internet connection

2nd solution:
you see the name for your device right?
write their name and number full/complete..
and google .find driver..

Sound didnt come out when i play music or movie


If you are using windows OS, most probably your Media Player is not support playing the Audio/Video formats, you are playing.

You can download & install the codec latest version for your PC/Laptop "K-Lite Codec Pack or K-Lite Mega Codec Pack" from http://www.free-codecs.com/download/k_lite_codec_pack.htm which will play most of the Audio/Video format.

You can also install the free VLC media Player too.

Hope it helps.

Seems the problem in your Audio Driver. Here's some steps that you could try :
1. Microsoft recommends that when this happens, you click "Update Driver" to update the drivers for the device in Device Manager.
2. based on my research the audio card is C-Media 8738 (not 9738) download the latest driver from here : http://www.cmedia.com.tw/EN/DownloadCenter_Detail.aspx?pserno=0&dtype=ALL


good luck

I need to download audio for my media player what do I need to download?


Check the "Device Manager" if the audio devices are properly install ie Audio/Sound drivers.
If your drivers are in order, you need to install the codec to play the Audio or video formats.

You can get the codec pack from http://www.free-codecs.com/index.htm. You can use either the "K-Lite Codec Pack or K-Lite Mega Codec Pack" on the Windows Platform.

Hope it helps.

WINDOW MEDIA PLAYAR NO SOUND


***Codec issue If only some of the movies you're playing do not get sound it's likely you have a codec issue. codec downloads.
***Check volume settings Often no sound in the Microsoft Windows Media Player is corrected by adjusting the volume controls at the bottom of the window. Moving the slider from the left to the right will turn up the volume, if all the way to the left the volume is turned all the way down.

***Make sure not muted In addition to the volume slider, make sure the sound icon is not pressed in. This button is the mute button and will mute the sound.

***Sound Driver Drivers for your sound card download this http://www.devicedoctor.com/device-doctor-download.php
***Update / Reinstall the Windows Media Player
If you continue to experience issues, you may want to consider reinstalling and/or updating the Windows Media player on your computer. You can find the latest Windows Media player on your computer by clicking "here".

No sound


If the sound is not working please check the following:

Try Playing different type of sound files and identify if the problem is with all the files ? (Play a video online on youtube or so and a music file from your system)

If not then it could be software problem with the audio software like window media player and updating the codecs would fix the issue( download k-lite codecs from google and install it)

You should also check if the system sound is put on mute

You can do so by clicking on the volume control icon on the bottom right system tray or by openning the control panel then going on to Hardware and sound and then to sound (adjust system volume)

Else its most probably device or driver issue

Check first if the audio device is enabled

For this you got to click start and click Run or type RUn in start search and once you get the RUN box type in devmgmt.msc...this would open up device manager windows

In device manager check Sound Video and game controler, check i it has a cross mark (X) or an Exclamation mark (!) if so then right click and enable it if disabled or update driver if it has got exclamation mark

Even if this does not help then you will have to load the sound driver either from driver and application CD that you got from Dell or online from you computer manufacturer website

This would solve the problem

Thanks

That means your audio codec driver doesnot meet to the sound driver.

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.

Go back into your device manager. Rught click on your sound card or sound device and say uninstall. After it is uninstalled, don't close device manager. Go to very top to your your computer's name or my computer if you didn't name it. Right click and click on scan for hardware changes. Windows will find your device and reinstall in a second. This will give you cack your volume control and sound.
