If you installed any codecs, try removing them.

Update your sound drivers.

If neither works, reinstall WMP on top of itself. This is not an eaily diagnosed problem, and reinstalling works 90 percent of the time (if the first two are dealt with).

What version of Media Player do you have?

Nevada, try downloading realplayer again, and reinstalling it, then removing it. Sometimes, the simplest solution works.

Squirly, please start another thread or your topic will get lost.--and posting a screenshot and example site will help greatly)
