my laptop has stopped playing audio. still get sound when click with mouse and open programs but windows media player comes up with a message "Windows Media Player cannot play the file because there is a problem with your sound device. There may not be a sound device installed on your computer, it may be in use by another program, or it may not be functioning properly".
