Re: Windows Media Player11
Go into Start --> Control Panel --> Printers & Other Hardware --> System --> Hardware --> device Manager --> Audio controllers - look and see if your sound card has a yellow question mark by it. If so, right click on the device and select Update Driver (make sure you are connected to the internet). Also, make sure the mute button is not pressed inside of Windows Media Player 11 itself, or that the Windows Media Player 11 volume is turned all the way down (you can find these items in the lower right of the Now Playing window).

A. As you have stated that "music plays just fine" and
you also said that "there is absolutely no sound", so I am a little
confused on this issue. Could you clarify whether you get any sound
while playing a song/video on Windows Media Center
or is it an issue only with the navigation sounds on Windows media
B. You may check the Volume mixer settings for the Windows Media Center.
Cross check the settings.
Here is how:
1. Right click on the Speaker icon on the task bar.
2. Click on "Open Volume mixer".
3. In the Windows Media Center mixer drag the slider down till you get the adequate sound.
The Samsung SyncMaster P2570hd is a monitor with speakers; it isn't the computer itself. I'll assume that you are dealing with a computer connected to the monitor and not a set-top box. Make sure that Mute is not enabled on the computer. There should be an icon on the lower right hand side of a Windows desktop. If the mute is enabled, it will have a red circle with a diagonal line through it. Left click on the icon to remove the mute (change the volume or click on the mute icon). Test the monitor's speakers by connecting it to another device with known good audio output.
Next how are you connecting the monitor to the computer (VGA, DVI or HDMI)? If you are using VGA or DVI (including DVI to HDMI), you need to connect an audio patch cable (3.5 mm) between the speaker (green port on the back of a sound card) or headphone jack of the computer and the audio input jack of the monitor. The audio input jack is between the DVI and VGA ports. You can test the output of the speaker jack on the computer with regular computer speakers. Plug in the power cord (or USB cable) for powered speakers. If the free-standing speakers work, check the volume setting on the monitor with the +/- buttons to the right of the menu button. Do not press menu first, though. If that doesn't solve the problem, continue using the separate speakers. (Unless the monitor is still under warranty, it usually isn't worth taking apart a monitor to replace the speakers. You may be able find replacement parts online.)
If you are using an HDMI cable, check the output audio setting to see if the HDMI audio is available. For Windows, click on Start > Control Panel > Hardware and Sound (Windows 7). Then click on Manage Audio Devices under Sound. In the Playback tab, check what available audio devices you have. Make the HDMI the default device by right-clicking on it and selecting Make this the default device. (Other versions of Windows will a slightly different route to this panel.) You may need to restart the computer to get the audio signal on the HDMI cable after setting this. Note: not all video cards/computers support HDMI audio. If you don't see HDMI listed in the Playback devices, connect an audio patch cable as with a VGA or DVI cable, described above. Use stand-alone speakers if the monitor's speakers are bad.
I hope this helps.
Cindy Wells (I have had the speakers fail in monitors; <$30 separate speakers are an adequate replacement for those built into a flat panel monitor.)
Check in volume control if the sound is balanced in the middle. It should be in the middle to get both left and right sound. Check the cables behind the speakers if its hooked properly. Check the cable that goes form ur speakers to the pc if its properly inserted fully.
If you have windows 98, you probably have older than windows media player 10. You need windows media player 10 or newer, as it says on the package in the fine print. I had windows media layer 9, and I had to use my sister's computer to work with my player. I know its frustrating!!!
Windows ME is going to provide you with a world of frustration as far as Mp3 players are concerned - I upgraded to XP just because of this issue. Services that worked with ME even a year ago no longer work - the support is dropping daily.
Check Sansa's website, but you are not supposed to need any drivers to get it to work with ME. Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off,hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.
Change Windows Media Player11 back to Windows Media Player10. To do this: 1.Go to control panel and remove Windows Media Player11. 2.A notification will come up telling you if you remove Windows Media Player11 it will roll back to Windows Media Player10 click OK. 3.Save and exit all programs and rolling back will take a few minutes. 4.Restart your computer. Quite a few files might be missing from your MP3 player but just put them back on.
