    If we play a song an error message

    0xC00D11BA: Cannot play the file
    Windows Media Player cannot play the file because there is a problem with your sound device, such as a sound card or sound controller. You may encounter this error message for one of the following reasons:


    • 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.

Audio not working means there must be a driver problem.Try to install the audio driver again.If it is high Definition audio driver first uninstall audio driver and high definition audio driver package.Reinstall the driver again.if problem persists check for the audio port.

I lost audio or sound on my 3 years old computer,i installed a new sound card, and the wizard wont find the hard ware. please help. Thanks


You need to install the driver for the new audio card. It should be on a CD that came with the new sound card. If you did install the driver from the CD then it may be too old and not functioning properly with either your OS or other hardware drivers that are newer.
You need to get a newer audio driver for this hardware device. You need to figure out who makes the audio card you bought (it should be on both the card itself and the box it came in). Browse to the website of the maker of this card, and go to their support/downloads section. You will need to enter in your model number and then you can download the newest version of the hardware driver. Download this driver and install it on your computer. You will be prompted to restart your computer, you need to do this to get your sound working.
Your speakers will now work!

I just bought the eMachine ET1831-07. I plugged


Hi

Thank you for your query

The sound issue could be down to several issues

Please try the following

1) Ensure that the speakers are plugged into the right port the port at the back of the Pc will be a light green colour and on closer inspection will have this symbol >))

2) If it is in the right port click on the following Start>Control Panel>Sounds and Audio Devices. In here ensure that the volume is not muted

I believe 1 of these 2 should cure the problem

If this has been useful please leave positive feedback/vote/testimonial - Thank you again

No sound is coming from my external computer speakers I have an Acer5100-U5300A computer. Whenever I try to connect external speakers to the computer, no sound is heard. I was trying to connect some...


Hello....
No Sound, No Volume Control, Mixer not Found, No Sound device installed…etc etc, This is a generic issue with all Windows OS updates....many of the users are facing this issue....this issue began after an auto update from MS changed many IRQs of Win OS, mainly the Sound and Audio Control system of Windows.
1 - R U facing NO Audio / No Sound issue...?
2 - Is ur Volume Control not responding ?
3 - Is ur Sound and Audio Device in Control Panel Grayed out ?
4 - Do u get a msg "No Active Mixer Devices Installed....when u try to open Volume Ctrl etc etc ?

If ur ans to any one of them is Yes...then u are being spammed by Microsoft....as ur Sound Control IRQ is being frozen by a recent update from Microsoft....

NOTE..THIS…IS…VERY..IMPORTANT...
No file update or any sound driver update can fix it, neither Microsoft is issuing any patch to fix it…or giving any help on this.
Full solution is available in my website (Support page)...it's quite simple process to fix it, and I am not charging any money, just trying to do some service and help everyone affected by this stupidity from Microsoft.

all the best...

We just bought a new LG flatron L222wt computer screen but it doesn't have any sound--volume controls seem o.k... Is there something else we need to do to get it to work??


Did you check to make sure the audio cable is plugged into the audio in on the back of the monitor and the audio out (usually green) on the back of the PC?
