This pc with Win98se PIII 128k has the problem that no sound is heard when play a music Cd but the picture is normal when a movie is played of course without sound.
A msg is shown when a music Cd is played:
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.

So when i see the info box a code is shown:

0xC00D11BA: Cannot play the file

I just checked device manager and no yellow mark ?,! on it.

But when opened multimedia then sound tab shows no device for play nor record. In the tab devices- multimedia controllers -sound devices right click properties and read sound devices - no installed devices of this class in your system.

I run Everest and in multimedia I read
Device decription type
Ensoniq ES1371 AudioPCI-97 Sound Card PCI-97

Is there anything more i could do to fix the problem ,really it is a mess since suddenly the pc stopped to play music i told you besides when started the pc no windows start music is heard.waiting for your help

Hi mloo55, see if this helps: Open WMP, go to Tools> Options> Devices and wait till the window populates. Then highlight Speakers and click the Properties button.
Where it says, "Audio Device to Use", try changing to "Default Direct Sound Device". If that is already chosen, choose your soundcard from the dropdown list.
Hope it works with WMP9.
