Windows media player won't work


Which operating system ? Which version of Media player ?
Though designed with Windows 7 in mind, Windows Media Player 11 (WMP 11) is fully compatible with Windows XP.

The trick is knowing which version of WMP 11 to download.
Different versions of the software exist not only for Windows 7, Vista, and XP, but also for both 32-bit and 64-bit Windows XP.

Additionally, WMP 11 is only compatible with XP if it is using Service Pack 2 or Service Pack 3. Before downloading the appropriate installation file, you will need to verify which version your system requires.

Open the "Start" menu.
Open "My Computer."

Click "Help", then select "About Windows."
This will display a window with system information.

Find the listing that specifies your Service Pack. If you are operating without Service Pack 2 or 3, you will need to install one (see Resources).


Open the "Start" menu and click "Run." Within the text field, type "winmsd.exe."

Click "OK." Select "System Summary."
Find the heading labeled "Item."

Under this heading should be the word "Processor."
The value associated with "Processor" will determine which version of Windows XP you are running.

If the value begins with "x86," you are running a 32-bit version.
If it begins with "ia64" or "AMD64," then you are running a 64-bit version.

Download the Windows Media Player installation file that matches your version of Windows (see Below).
http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows/downloads/windows-media-player

Open the file once it has finished downloading.
This will launch the installation wizard.

Follow the onscreen instructions to install WMP 11.
The program should now run normally.
How to Fix Windows Media Center

Windows Media Center is the home entertainment hub on a Windows computer.
With Media Center, you can play live television, songs, DVDs and slideshows.

It is preinstalled on Windows XP Media Center Edition, Windows Vista Home Premium/Ultimate Edition and Windows 7 Home Premium, Professional, Enterprise and Ultimate editions.

From time to time, users run into issues trying to play audio or video files, or with an extender connected to Media Center.

Extenders are devices that allow you to "extend" the Media Center onto a TV screen or larger display.

The Xbox 360 gaming console is an example of an extender.
Launch Windows Media Center from your computer's Start menu.

Scroll down to "Music" on the Media Center home screen.
Select "Music library."

If you find an empty folder under "Music Library," navigate to the folder on your hard drive that stores your music file and add it to Media Center's library.

If the problem isn't an empty folder, look at the file extension on the music file that won't play. Media Center can't play files with unknown or incompatible extensions.

If you find a questionable extension, skip that file. Click once on another file with a different extension, one you know is compatible with Media Center, and then click "Open" to test if you can play that one.

Media Center will play MP3, CDA, WAV and other music file formats.
Open Windows Media Player from the Start menu if you receive a codec error while trying to play either audio or video files.

If you open the file in Media Player, the codec will download automatically.
You should then be able to play the file in Media Center.

Troubleshoot your firewall settings if a Media Center extender doesn't work.
You'll have a problem using an extender if Windows Firewall blocks it.

Go to "Control Panel" from the Start menu and double-click on "Windows Firewall."
Click on "Allow a program or feature through Windows Firewall."

Click to check "Media Center Extenders."
Click on "Apply."

Check external speaker cables to make sure they're connected if you can't hear any sound. Check the computer's volume settings by clicking on the "VOL+" icon at the bottom right corner of the main Media Center screen to make sure the volume is not turned off or down too low.

You may need to reconfigure your speakers if you're having volume or sound issues.
Scroll down to "Tasks" in the Media Center home screen and select "Settings."

Click on "General" and select "Windows Media Center Setup."
Click on "Set Up Your Speakers."

Follow the on-screen prompts to reconfigure your speakers.

My sound is real funny like chipmunk sounds


If the pitch of the sound being played by your computer speakers has changed dramatically or songs and videos are playing faster or slower than they typically should be, the problem is with the sound speed on your computer. This could mean a hardware issue with your speakers or sound card or a software issue with the program that you're using to play a digital media file.

Double-check your speaker connections. If one of the audio cables that runs off of your speakers isn't plugged correctly into your computer, this could cause the audio coming from them to speed up or slow down. Make sure all cables are properly connected to their proper inputs and try to play your audio again. Update the driver for your computer's sound card. Go to the website of the company that made your sound card and look for your unit's product page. Under the "Support" section, click on the download link for the latest device driver. Once the file is on your computer, double-click on it to install it. Then restart your computer and try to play your audio again. Make sure you haven't accidentally sped up or slowed down the media file you are trying to play. Many digital media programs like iTunes or Windows Media Player have features that allow you to play a song or video in slow or fast motion. If this becomes accidentally selected, the audio will also be in slow or fast motion. Click "Stop" to stop your media file from playing and then click "Play" again to allow it to play normally. Restart your computer. This will free up system memory when your computer restarts. If your sound was playing too slow or too fast due to an error with not having enough memory to play properly, that error will now be fixed and your sound should return to normal speed. Hope this helps.

I can't hear any sound from my speaker. Aside from that, in my player(Windows Media Player), there's a message saying that I don't have a sound device. Please help me..thanks


It seems that your sound card driver is not installed and furthermore does your pc has inbuilt speakers or not. At the rear of the cpu you should connect your speakers green wire inside cpu's green socket. For the sake of driver you can install it from the link provided below and install it on your pc. Just click the link provided below and then click on Download link1 Happy listening.

HP Media Center m7250n - How to hear audio steamefrom panel input


You need to unmute the line-in and adjust its level as necessary. Usually you can just double click on the speaker icon in the system tray and the Line In is by default muted and it is on the far right column (depending on your setup). If it is not displayed, click on Options and Properties and put a check mark by Line-in so that it will display.

Cant find correct sockets for speakers


There are usually several small holes in the connection board on the back of the desktop computer. The makers inscribe a small icon next to each hole to describe what they are for....sound in, sound out, record, etc.
I can never interpret what the icons mean, so I just plug the speaker wire into each hole until I get sound.

Be sure to have sound activated (via the software) on the computer before doing this. If you have the sound muted or worse yet, have no sound driver installed, you won't get sound no matter what port/hole you connect your speakers to.

Solution:

best sol: go to start button ----->click RUN----->Type devmgmt.msc in Text Box -----> 

              Device Manager windows appears , click on Sound, video and game controllers(+), 
              if you see "Realtek AC97 drivers"(if they are visible...) then we can make sure that sound                     drivers are loaded in ur system, otherwise you have load it again.....


                                                          or

i) my best advice would be, dont mess up with installing, reinstalling, uninstalling sound drivers rather try   to format or reload your OS again(Windows XP) and then install drivers.

ii)  try to check volume on your speakers, volume in windows or system , volume in media players sometimes they may set to mute of no volume.......

iii) try to check all sound physcial connection that run from your computer to speakers, including power connections, cable connection ....or just remove and replace them(reseating...)

iv) try connecting a headset to your sound port, sometimes your subwoofers or speakers may fail.....

My computer has no sound- L310


If windows XP (i think for vista is pretty similar)check in "control panel" > "sounds and audio devices" - just to check the sound is not muted or turned right down. Check the speakers on another PC, and check your PC with other speakers / headphones to see if it sheds any light on the problem. Update or reinstall the most updated drivers for the soundcard, this may solve the problem, you can get them from this link; http://www.acerpanam.com/synapse/forms/portal20.cfm?website=AcerPanAm.com/au&siteid=8116&areaid=12&formid=3394#results Hope this helps :)
