i kinda found the problem, my comp has been really slow for some reason, so i then hit ctrl alt del and then went to process to see what was taking up so much of my cpu usage, it turns out it was something called "svchost.exe" i tried to play my music before i "end tasked" it, and it worked, but when i close that, it makes my comp faster, but then my sound for music and vids doesn't work :/
