When I play Windows media player my visual comes up and plays but I have no sound. My sound is working as when windows Xp opens I hear the welcome sound. In addition when I try to view JPEG son Microsoft Office Inbox I get a message that is no program associated with it.
Any suggestions?

John,
Do you have the volume turned up in the Windows Media Player? That might be the answer to your problem. If the volume in WMP is turned down, but the rest are turned up, you will not hear sound. Let us know.

I have just downloaded the WMP 10 and was surprised I could see a post on this straightaway!

I have a similar problem as John. I am 'sure' my volume is turned up as I have accessed the WMP 10 video tutorials which play and sound excellent. But inserting a regular music CD into my CD-Rom gives no sound therefore ripping or burning these gives no result.

The samples of music in my play list play OK too.

Hope you or others can advise on this.

I have sound but not through media player. The error message comes up "Windows Media Player encountered an unknown error. This can occur when another program or operating system component encounters a problem but does not communicate the nature of the problem to the player.

go to Tools>Options>Devices in your media player dbl click on speakers. Now check what audio device is set to use. sometimes this changes when u install a program. make sure this is set to your active sound device. this may be AC97 if u have on board sound on your motherboard or if u have a sound card set it to that I think that should work for you
