I'm pretty much computer illiterate, and am probably missing something really simple.
Windows Media Player 7.1 has no sound. It says it's playing the audio track, or the video, there's just no sound. It starting to make me crazy.

Make sure the sounds are not muted in Windows.

Go to Start > Programs > Accessories > Entertainment > Volume Control. Uncheck the Mute all box.

Open up Windows Media Player.

Go to Play > Volume. Make sure that there is no tick besides the Mute word. If there is, select it to untick it.

Nothing is muted. The sound on everything else works, just not the Media PLlayer.

How about the wave?

It's next to Volume Control. If it is drag to the bottom, you can't hear anything.
