For some unknown reason to me (maybe due to an uninstall or win update?) I have LOST ALL SOUND and cannot get it back ... i've been through most of the Problems and Solutions previously listed, and cannot find the answer. Maybe it's a different problem? I'm running WinXP, HP Pavillon t430.uk Machine, Realtek AC97 Sounds (on M'board - not a seperate card, I have tried to uninstall device/drivers and reinstall them, I have checked all the power-connections-cables-pins are correct-speakers do work, and i've been into the bios and selected auto and enable. but still nothing, is this a return to manufacture or throw out of the window decison?
Common errors such as:-
1. [Windows Media Player] cannot play the file because there is a problem with your sound device. There might not be a sound device installed on your computer, it might be in use by another program, or it might not be functioning properly.
2. [InterActual Player DVD] Playback failed due to an error with the audio subsystem. Please ensure the sound card is properly installed or close any applications that may use the sound card.
3. [PC Doctor Windows] the wav function will not work, (unable to open wave player) but the MIDI both channels will work?
From MYCOMPUTER right click on your DVD drive and from the window select PROPERTIES. Click on AUTOPLAY to see which application is being used to play your media. If its Realplayer then there may be something wrong with this programme. Try another one i.e. Windows Media Player.
