Default Help

i restored my pc and when i go to play music on windows media player it says...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............


love some help please?

Try updating your audio drivers.

If you are using onboard sound, go to your PC's manufacturer's website and look for downloads.

You download them, and run them like any other program.

If they don't come with an installer, you go to Start > Control Panael > System > Hardware > Device Manager. Click the "+" in front of Sound, video, and game controllers. Right-click your audio chipset, choose Update Drivers. Choose the option to choose to look in a specific place, and direct it to where your downloaded driver is.
