Windows Media Player blows out my sound?

The audio on my computer seemed to have died…

Windows media Player version: 11.0.5721.5145
Windows OS : Windows XP media center edition version 5.1 service pack 2

What happened: I had music playing and I popped in a DVD. The HP media center thing tried to play the DVD while I think the media player did as well. The DVD was popping and skipping until I closed media player- and then it worked fine. Then I turned the DVD off- and I tried to play a song on media player, tried to play a song online, everything... and the audio won’t work (speakers on my laptop and my speakers I plug in to my laptop). There was an error message at one point- something about quicktime.

My friend said "just restart it"- no luck.

Yikes- my mp3 player broke last week and now my computer can't play music!

I appreciate any help.

I'm going to guess that quicktime "stole" the associations for media types on your computer. It likes to do that! Nasty, very nasty apple!

Open Control panel, double click on the Quicktime icon. Select the File types tab and change whatever you want to associate/dis-associate Quicktime from handling the file type.
