Re: computer help

sounds like a corrupted driver. Try to go to System then Harware and uninstall the audio device. Reboot and see if that helps

Better directions

OK got to the Start Menu and select Control Panel
In Control Panel select System
In System select Device Manager
In Device Manager there is a section called Sound, Video and Game Controllers this will have the device and drivers. Check there for warning icons and try reinstalling the device.

Hope that helps more.

Re: computer help

Thanks for the responses. Went to the Microsoft homepage and downloaded the driver updates for the media player. Everything back to normal. Thanks.
