Problems with Sound

I recently am having issues playing any type of sound format on my computer. I'm thinking it has something to do with me uninstalling multiple programs related to it.

Musicmatch Jukebox (I had all sound formats except .mid associated with it.)
MIDI Maestro (.mid's were associated with it.)
and another MIDI program, but it wasn't configured to associate with .mid's.

When I open a .mp3 file, I get this error:

0xC00D11BA: Cannot play the file
Windows Media Player cannot play the file because there is a problem with your sound device, such as a sound card or sound controller. You may encounter this error message for one of the following reasons:

- Your sound device is in use by another program. Quit other programs that may be using your sound device, and then try to play the file again.

- Your sound device is not functioning properly. To troubleshoot the problem, see the Sound Troubleshooter in Windows Help or refer to your sound device's documentation.

- You do not have a sound device installed on your computer. Install a sound device, and then try to play the file again.

With WinAmp, I get this error:

Unsupported PCM format (44100 Hz, 16 bits per sample, 2 channels). Please change format settings in input plug-in configuration or change output device in waveOut plug-in configuration.

Error code 32:
Windows error message:
"MMSYSTEM032 The specified format cannot be translated or supported. Use the Capabilities function to view supported formats."
~

Before this happened, both Windows Media Player and WinAmp perfectly allowed me to play .mp3's and .mid's. Sorry if this there is an easy solution to this and I was very thorough, I'd rather be safe than sorry!

Thanks in advance.

EDIT: Please disregard this, I figured out what my problem was. Sorry! >_<

Well, I checked my Sound and Multimedia Properties and noticed that my Sound Playback and MIDI Music Playback devices were messed up. The Sound Playback device fixed itself after a reboot or two I think, then I changed my MIDI Music Playback to Microsoft GS Wavetable SW Synth and then I rebooted again and it worked fine.

I'm not sure why those got messed up though. :whistling:
