Dear Sir or Madam When I want to play a music on my computer , I get this error: "Windows Media Player cannot play the file because there is a problem with your sound device. There might not be a sound...
Yes there is something wrong! The sound card driver is corrupted!
YOu need to check on device manager again. Look for your drivers there.
If you do not see the EXACT NAME of your sound card, then the driver that is installed is a DEFAULT driver made by the os.
Ex: This is a sound card driver name listed in Device manager:
IDT HIGH DEFINISION AUDIO
This is an example of a default sound card driver that will not work well on certain sounds or will not work at all:
LEGACY SOUND DEVICE
Even thought you many not see a yellow question mark (which you should be checking for too just in case)on any of the listings for your hardware, chances are you are still using a default sound card driver due to a corruption to its original sound card driver.
So recheck your device manager and find out the exact name of your original sound card. If there is no match to your exact name of your sound card, then you need to REINSTALL your sound card driver again and you will immediatly see your sound card working again :)
If this does not work, you may have to change your sound card.
Hope this helps :)
