I keep getting this error when I try to play any sound...

Windows Media Player cannot play the file because there is a problem with your sound device. There may not be a sound device installed on your computer, it may be in use by another program, or it may not be functioning properly.



I get this error with any program that plays a sound... my speakers are plugged in and functioning(i've tryed headphones). The last thing I downloaded that used sound was "I-Dozer", I think this might have caused problem. I un-installed it and restored defaults to my sound card. Still does not not work. Please help, can't listen to music on my computer :tazz:

Hi,

Go into system restore and use a restore point prior to when you installed the software and see if that helps.

If you are running XP goto start>programs>accessories>System tools>system restore then a window will come up put a dot next to "restore my computer to an eiarler date" and click next. Another window will appear with a calender, pick a date that was before you installed the software and click next.

This will not change any of your personel files or settings.
